Had the chance to visit Chicago with my exchange student son from Belgium. We stayed here at the Carlton Inn Midway for several reasons: price, cleanliness, location and hospitality.
I made the reservation a few days before the trip, and a day later received an email from the manager (Gary) welcoming me back. He asked how many sons I was bringing this time. I was pleased to think he would remember our last visit, and how he made friends with my kids. Nice to know they take the time to be friendly, and extend a welcome even before we open the door.
Our room was well prepared, clean,and ready for us to call it our home away from home. Located just a few blocks from the Pulaski Orange line to downtown Chicago, the free shuttle was a blessing ride to shelter us from the cold and windy elements. We were even shuttled to a few area restaurants to sample "CHICAGO STYLE PIZZA", and an excellent beef sandwich.
While in Chicago, we visited the Museum of Science and Industry, the Sears (Willis) Tower, and did some shopping on the miracle mile...did not have time to visit Navy Pier or Hard Rock Cafe.
Many excellent restaurants in the area....ask at the front desk on where to experience some excellent Polish cuisine. Don't forget the continental breakfast....and bring your laptop computer as there is a wireless internet connection.
At a cost well below what you would pay for a room closer to downtown, do not hesitate to give this place a try. You won't be sorry.
P.S. Make sure you say hi to Buddy....
