Hotel was very clean and the staff was attentive and kind. We were impressed by the size of our 2 bedroom suite, but we understood why the sitting areas and bedrooms were so huge - only one TINY bathroom. We did fine since there was only 2 of us but a bigger group might want to take note. Great location... More

I only stayed one night at the Residence Inn. It is steps from the Magnificent Mile and many great restaurants and bars. Check in was great, Valet was very attentive. The rooms were a bit small but thats probably to be expected in an urban hotel. The room however was very clean and well maintained. Breakfast and evening social were... More

We loved the convenience of being so close to the Magnificent Mile and staying in this top quality, beautifully maintained hotel. Our suite was spectacular. The staff was courteous and helpful. The hot breakfast was wonderful. We will definitely stay here again when we come to Chicago next time.

Four family members and myself stayed her over the St. Patty's Day weekend. We had a 2 bedroom suite. When we got to our room. one of the beds had stained bedding on it. The duvet cover was also stained. The hotel promptly changed the bedding and all was well. Unfortunately, the television in the living room as broken and... More

The location of this Residence Inn is primo. It's 2 blocks away from shopping and all the major bus lines (that I used frequently to travel up to the Boystown area). Upon check-in, I was immediately upgraded to a one bedroom suite when I inquired about an oven being available in the kitchen. While the breakfast was run-of-the-mill typical hotel... More

I typically don't leave reviews, however, I felt that I needed to give special recognition to Dino at the Front Desk. He was a pleasure to deal with!! We arrived early into town and he was kind enough to allow us to check in early so that we could get dressed and make a tapping, rather than having to stress... More

Just back from a five day stay in a 2 bedroom suite, same suite actually as our last MLK weekend trip to Chicago a couple years ago. And it's the same: Same carpet, same couch (WHO on earth designed those RI couches and thought they were a good idea? Lousy sleep, lousy to sit on.), same kitchen. And it's not... More

I chose this Residence Inn basically for the location and the comfortable accommodation of a mini apartment in downtown Chicago. Location: two blocks from the John Hancock tower and thus Michigan avenue. It's a quiet neighborhood with little traffic. Perfect for shopping and restaurants! Room: enormous one bedroom suite with full kitchen, big bedroom but very small bathroom. The toilet... More

Pros: My hotel room was clean, had a great kitchen setup, and good shower. No complaints about the amenities. Cons: Extremely thin walls. The people next to my room were partying at night and I had to call down several times. The staff went up twice and I overheard them threatening to kick them out of the hotel the second... More
