I think it is important to have a little perspective before firing off a bad review. I opted to stay here for an event at McCormick Place because all other hotels in the immediate area are double or triple - I try to fiscally conscious when traveling for business. The hotel itself reminds me of a Chinese restaurant that was... More

This hotel was nothing it advertised. The pictures online are very misleading. There was hardly enough space to walk around the room. All of the fixtures (closet bar, soap holder, toilet paper holder, etc.) were broken. The bed didn't have a fitted sheet, so there were two top sheets that were too small for the bed. I ended up sleeping... More

Stayed here one night because of its low price. Will never stay here again. Although the China town hotel in Chicago website claims they have cable tv, they do not. There are televisions in the rooms-that have zero channels. How frustrating to turn the tv on and find not a single channel. Why have tvs at all? I guess the... More

This was a last minute booking for the Bears/Packers game. I have never been more disgusted in my life. The room stunk, I was afraid to even set my bags on the bed, the sheets were torn, no door on the closet, windows were open when we checked in and they opened into a trash filled alley, the wall air...

For around $100 a night, in a hotel near downtown Chicago is cheap. So don't expect anything more than a room with private bath and a bed. The location is great, a short walk from the Red Line station. If you like Chinese food then you got it made as Chinese restaurants are a plenty in the area. My room... More

+ Cheap + Nice location: very close to the city center that can be reached by the metrorail pretty easily + not especially dirty - small room, and everything else is small - no elevator - has a generall horrible feel to it - does smell - general sketchyness

Stayed 3 nights here for an event at McCormick Place. It was an easy walk down Cermak each day (about a mile), so the location was perfect for me. The neighborhood is safe, inviting, and friendly. A lot of excellent food choices nearby, such as a Chinese bakery with $1.00 buns that are stuffed with custard or ham and eggs!... More

My boyfriend and I recently stayed 3 nights in this hotel. We were in room 102, so we didn't have to haul our luggage very far. Before booking this hotel I was hesitant because of the not so great reviews it had, but my boyfriend kept reminding me that we wouldn't even be in the room very often since we... More

We were looking for somewhere cheap to stay in Chicago and this place fitted the bill. In short we got what we paid for and I was ok with that. The location is good in that its just a 2 minute walk to the subway to take you in to town. The rooms are tiny,gloomy and old but the toilet... More

For my first visit to Chicago, I want to keep it cheap (as always, because I'm cheap). Anyway, it's true, sometimes you do get what you pay for. Often I've gotten more, but not this time. It was decent enough at first. Clean enough (carpets could use replacement), no fitted sheets on the bed (just flat sheets). Air conditioner worked,... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures sprinkled throughout the neighborhood ranging from animal structures to pagodas, a tile mosaic, Chinatown Gate, and a Buddhist Temple.
