I stayed at this hotel with my 3 kids and my parents in a 2 bedroom suite. It was a great stay. The location was perfect - walking distance to the Mag Mile and numerous restaurants. Since the hotel is on a street with residental buildings, it's very quite. The suite was roomy with two bedrooms, a kitchen and a... More

Free breakfast, free meals on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays (with beer and wine), very friendly staff, reasonable rates and and spacious rooms make this hotel a must if staying near the gold coast. the Mag mile, Hancock center, Navy Pier and Oak Street beach are all within walking distance.

I travelled with 3 friends to Chicago in May 2011, and we stayed at the Residence Inn on E. Walton. The room was spotless; the service was great; and the food was surprisingly good and plentiful. We expeceted a small snack, but it was a meal. We would definitely stay again.

I can't say enough good things about this hotel! We were lost in the parking lot and a very kind man pointed us the way out. He was the manager off duty! A very sweet maid greeted us on the way to our room. The room was very nicely decorated and very quiet. At breakfast the next morning the room... More

I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights during my week-long business trip to Chicago. The location of the hotel is wonderful - a short walk to everything: office near Millennium park sightseeing, threatre, and great restaurants. Rick Bayless's 3 restaurans are just 1 blocks away and I've visited them many times. There's night club just downstairs but I didn't... More

I stayed three nights here with college friends; a reunion after 30 years. The hotel was really very nice. The room was clean and extremely roomy. The kitchenette was modern and very efficient. The location was excellent for sightseeing. Each morning, the breakfast was more than adequate. They had hot food; eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, belgian waffles, breads and muffins,... More

We recently went to Chicago for a wedding and stayed at the hotel as it was down the street from the reception. The one bedroom was quite large, very clean and well fitted. We were a bit concerned that the bed backed up to the elevator, but we did not hear any noise at all through the wall. Breakfast was... More

Clean, close enough to walk to the Magnificent Mile, breakfast and enough food at dinner dinner to feed a family. For adults I recommend eating out at any great Chicago Restaurant. My daughter enjoyed her time at The American Girl Store just a short walk away.
