“courteous personnel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

We were in Chicago last week at the Embassy. We want to mention Dwayne in the Bell Staff, who has been helpful at all times, greeting people coming in, friendly and polite. Also, at the front desk, Dinah, with extra explanations about the credit card, printer, etc. The people in this hotel made the difference to us. Barmaids, coffee shops attendants, cooks, they all make your stay a BIG PLUS!!!

Embassy Suites, Lakefront Chicago has perhaps the best hotel staff available. They make this excellent hotel wonderful. I can not praise them enough for the pride they obviously take in thier work. The hotel has terrific accommodations and the food and beverages are excellent. I would highly recommend you stay at Embassy Suites, Lakefront Chicago.

I was just here for two nights for a conference and could not have asked for better. The room layout is fabulous, with a living room/ desk area separate from the bedroom completely -- my husband could still be a night owl. The staff was great and we appreciated the effort they made at breakfast. Take advantage of the manager's happy hour because the drink prices are steep! Go across the street to DOminic's and buy your own to bring to your room!

Room Tip: We were in 627 and it was just great.

Very friendly staff, very nice hotel, but the staff made the stay an exceptional one. I have always appreciated my stays at Embassy Suites. I look forward to returning to Chicago in the not too distant future.

We were there for 7 days. This hotel was very nice. Our maid, Patricia was excellent. The grocery store across the street, Dominics was very convenient to the hotel as the gift shop was very pricey !. The buffet was good, but after about the 4th day I was ready for some different breakfast choices. The staff was very friendly and helpful. This is a very busy hotel. Nice having a separate living area from the bedrooms. I enjoyed my visit very much .

Room Tip: Ask for lake view or view of your choice. Nice to watch the sunrise over the lake!!

Overall a great hotel. The staff was very friendly. The valet park guy got us a limo to the game we were attending in a matter of minutes. One of the BEST hotels I've stayed in. The complimentary drinks from 530 til 730 was phenomenal.

Nice comfortable suite with plenty of room. The bed was the most comfortable I've had. Breakfast is a real production they have something for everyone also made to order omelets. This is a great location we left our car in the parking garage and Walked everywhere. Also close to the red line and local transportation if you font choose to walk. What a great weekend stop I'm sure it will not be our last trip here
