My girlfriends and I meet up somewhere for a girls trip once a year. Because of the prices of airfare and access from our various airports, we decided to spend a long weekend in Chicago. I am usually in charge of choosing where we stay so I decided to take a chance on Priceline and we got a fairly good... More

This is our third stay here in as many years. Location is fabulous, and while the property is clean and maintained, it is a bit tired and in need of updating. Rooms are small (typical for an older hotel in the city), but I wouldn't say that is a major factor. Service is good, and it has all of the... More

This hotel has it all. Fantastic location on Michigan Avenue, as an IHG Platinum member, I try to stay at IHG hotels when I can. While this is an older hotel, it is kept up wonderfully. The lobby was nice, the room was clean and well kept. The front desk on check in was extremely cordial, as well as the... More

Nice hotel very conveniently located on the magnificent mile. While Michigan avenue is very interesting for the shopping it is also quite noisy, so ask for a room in the top floors or in the back-they are really quiet and my preferred .

Recertification classes for continuing education classes. It's great toget a feel for old time "Chicago" style hotel. Great memorabilia at "Michael Jordan Resturant and lounge. Been here twice always find it interesting especially the pool on the upper level something out of Al Capone era 1930's very cool.

The location of this hotel is great. Everything you would want in Chicago is a walk away being centered in the heart of Chicago. Great views as well; The tribune tower to the north, Michigan Ave to the west, Lake Michigan to the east, and water tower are to the north. You will get a true sense of the amazing... More

This is the only hotel I would stay in when I visit Chicago again. I wouldn't say it was a 5 star hotel, but it certainly was a 5 star experience. First of all, let me say that the location was BRILLIANT!!!! Although the rooms are a little old, they were clean and very comfortable and practical. Our room had... More

Wow. I was extremely impressed with this hotel. Actually I can't begin to describe how impressed I was with this hotel. I am a Platinum IHG Rewards Club member. I always hope for an upgrade, but definitely don't expect it. I really didn't expect an upgrade when I arrived at 11AM. I got there early, and the hotel already confirmed... More

We arrived as a last minute check-in while downtown a couple Friday's ago. We used an on-line hotel reservation and found the reservation pretty cheap and expected to get stuck in a pretty cheap room. Much to our surprise we found ourselves in the original tower with a nice sized king room that had an actual sit-down-comfy-chair and not just... More

Located on the Magnificent Mile, it is only blocks from all the great stores. The staff is attentive and helpful. But for the price, the rooms in the old tower are dark and poorly appointed in terms of comfortable and useable furniture for a business trip. The rooms in the new tower are better appointed but smaller. Add to that... More
