Stayed with older grandchildren to see the "downtown". Location was close to everything. Walking to beach or Navy not an issue. Grocery in next block for snacks/drinks. Parking available down street for $25 night.

This was my first trip to Chicago so I didn't really know what to expect. We stayed at this hotel from Friday Oct 17, 2014 until Monday, Oct 20th. There were 5 of us (4 adults, 1 child) and we all stayed in the same 2 bedroom suite on the 8th floor. Upon arrival, we had the valet park the... More

We certainly enjoyed our first visit to Chicago. The location of this property is perfect for walking, shopping and dining. The doorman will hail you a cab if needed. This Residence Inn is very well appointed. Our 17th floor room offered a beautiful view, a king size bed with superior linens, full kitchen, and luxurious bathroom. Quite lavish and a... More

We stayed here for 3 nights recently and it was fabulous! This hotel is perfect for a stay in the Windy City. It is in a great location and from the door man to the front desk, breakfast staff, maids, etc. everyone was friendly and welcoming. The hotel and rooms are clean, neat and comfortable. We were nervous because they... More

The room was very nice, however the breakfast was the same almost every day I was there. Varitey is something a residence inn is good at, except this was below my residence inn standards. The wi-fi was not the best either as I had a hard time staying connected while I moved about my room. The people working there were... More

We were very pleased with this property. It was a couple of blocks off Michigan avenue, and honestly I was glad to be just a tad removed. It was easy to get to many locations, yet not crazy crowded right outside the hotel front door. The lake area was just a couple of blocks the other way, so that was... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend while undergoing medical testing at NW Memorial Hospital. It's very close to the hospital (4 blocks?) but since I've been ill and unable to walk very well, the hotel provided us with a free shuttle to and from the hospital every day, so it's a great place to stay if you're an outpatient. Didn't... More

Very nice property. We stayed in the one bedroom suite on the 12th floor. It was huge .. 750 square feet and clean and well-tended. The location is great. The breakfasts are good. The elevators are fast so getting to and from the breakfast area is not a hassle. The hotel is one block from Hancock Tower and within walking... More

A group of friends from college gathered here for a reunion of sorts, on a very busy weekend in Chicago. Our room was very clean and nice with a lovely kitchenette. The staff couldn't have been nicer, even granting our request to put our rooms near each other, though the hotel was completely booked. Breakfast was great. Just a couple... More

This was a nice place to stay on a quiet street. Breakfast was good every morning, and yes there was a waffle maker. The full kitchen was a plus, nice to be able to store and heat up that left over deep dish pizza. public transportation was just a few blocks away. There was a nice coffee shop and donut... More
