Yes the lift (elevator!) is slow, yes it's a little bit tired, and yes you do get hit by parking charges (but they are up-front about it) The plus side is that it's right there! 5 min to the lake shore/museums/bean - and not much further to Sears/Trump/Mile. The diner next door supplies a great breakfast too!

Passing through, one night in Chicago for the first time. This was one of the few hotels that had vacancy. Booked a room, but was not aware that there was no parking provided by the hotel.

I killed a cockroach on my first night. Didn't see any others. On my second day, my room key wouldn't work. I went to the front desk, got a new key and it still wouldn't work. A maintenance man had to come and change the batteries in the lock, delaying me from an urgent work assignment.

I stayed at the Travelodge this August. We mostly stayed there because it was cheap for Chicago and close to multiple el lines (and buses) and the loop downtown area. If anybody is a blues fan, Buddy Guy's Legends bar is two blocks away. It's a block from Michigan Avenue and Grant Park and the massive Buckingham Fountain. The place... More

We had a very nice big room. The bed was heaven to sleep on. BUT we had no hot water, even after letting them know we needed it fixed. Most of the desk staff needed lessons in customer service. For example, when we arrived our room was not ready so we asked if we could leave our bags there. The... More
