Embassy Suites Downtown???

Booking a girls weekend for May. Thinking of booking at the Embassy Suites Chicago Downtown. Is this a good cental location? Is it a clean and safe hotel for 3 ladies on a get away?

Also, I have heard that there is a good architectural tour from the water but can't remember the name of the company.

Any help would be appreciated.

thanks

It is a good location, but also realize it is a family type of hotel, so if you are looking to get away from kids, it may not happen.

Take a look at The Palomar, They have a wine hour as well, I believe

thanks for the input. We are looking forward to our second annual trip to Chicago.

We stayed at the Seneca last year which was perfect but it doesn't seem to be available anymore. The Embassy sounds perfect for our needs - a place to rest our heads.

Any other recommendations????

There are a lot of options for a suite hotel, among them the Hilton Suites, Hampton Inn and Suites, Homewood Suites, Comfort Suites, two Residence Inns, Springhill Suites, Omni, etc. All are within walking distance of shops, restaurants and the CAF Boat Tour.

If you decide on the Embassy Suites on State, check with them regarding the status of their renovations.

I have stayed at both Embassy Suites and also the Seneca. My choice would be Embassy Suites on State st.
