This place isn't the Ritz-Carlton. It isn't then Hyatt. It isn't the Four Seasons. But for $80 a night in downtown Chicago it's not going to be. I am giving the Chinatown Hotel an Excellent rating because for $80 a night in downtown Chicago it was exactly what I thought it would be. True, the building is old, the decor... More

We booked 2 rooms to this hotel online, (2 couples) as we check in, the staffs are very friendly, quick check in, and quick check out. Room wasn't big, but enough room to up and walk around, basic Amenities such as hair dryer, iron and etc.... Microwave are in the breakfast area. Right in Chinatown, closed to the Subway station...

Not for everybody but I loved it. It felt authentic and refreshing to be surrounded by so much culture. Chinatown itself felt safe but surrounding area is sketchy. Rooms feel worn out but being able to get authentic well prepared Chinese at 3am and grab a beer with my husband made for a memorable night. This is real chicago but... More

The Chinatown Hotel Chicago was located in Chinatown. It was a 5-minute walk from the Chinatown-Cermak red line CTA subway station, which was a 15-minute ride from Grand red line CTA station in the Magnificent Mile. I felt safe in the brightly lit Chinatown area even though it was desolete during the day and night. The Chinese generally kept to... More

if you have the choice to sleep in your car or in the Chinatown Hotel, pick your car. This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The staff is rude, the room is terrible, the other guests are loud and obnoxious and the neighborhood is scary. I had to pound on the door across the hall to get... 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.
