“Friendly staff and good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

The hotel is walking distance to shopping and entertainment locations. House of Blues, Mag. Mile are 3-5 minutes walk from the hotel. Rooms are a little dated. There is a kitchenette and washer in the room which we did not use. Aircon is a little noisy.

The staff - Nadir, Brandon and Amanda - is very friendly and extraordinary helpful.

I recommend this hotel for the families with kids.

We spent 5 nights @ the Comfort Suites, 320 N. Michigan Ave- Chicago. We had originally planned to stay 4 nights, but enjoyed ourselves so much we stayed an extra night.

The hotel was conveniently located (we were able to walk to almost every location we wanted to go to) and the suites were furnished nicely with small kitchenettes, pull-out couch as well as a large king-sized bed that was very comfortable. An added plus was they supply soft & firm pillows on the bed, so we had our choice of pillow-type to make ourselves more comfortable. Having a hot breakfast in the mornings vs. a continental breakfast was a nice way to start off a busy day. Rooms even had washers/dryers although my wife refused to do laundry while on vacation.

We feel the best part of the hotel was the staff. We checked in about 5p.m. and was greeted by the front desk staff, Nader and Amanda. Both of the them were very accommodating and helpful throughout our stay. They made us feel welcome and greeted us each evening when we returned to the hotel. They attended to our needs (Nader helped us with our luggage and locating the parking garage as well as making recommendations for restaurants and points of interest) and Amanda helped us when our tv remote wasn't working properly as well as making recommendations on points of interest and restaurants and "a place close-by to just grab a drink". The hotel should count these 2 as some of their top staff, although I would like to also compliment the day staff @ the front desk, who were also helpful in whatever manner we needed.

Thanks to Comfort Suites of Chicago for making our vacation a wonderful and very enjoyable time. We will definitely visit this hotel again!!

Found this hotel by chance and I was pleasantly surprised. The staff were extraordinarily friendly and the location can't be beat. Walk over the bridge to Billy Goat's and have a burger. Close to just about everything. Room quality was great--kitchenette and even a washer/dryer. The bathroom is small (these rooms look like converted small condos) but that's a minor gripe.

This hotel was in such a prime location. We used the valet parking (at a discount rate) around the corner that is affiliated w/the hotel and had no worries about driving or parking the rest of the stay. We walked to the art museum, Willis Tower (a little more of a walk, but not bad at all), Millennium Park (where we saw a free outside symphony and The Bean), and many other places. Tons of restaurants and shopping nearby too. The river cruise was visible from the hotel, and a very short walk away. I cannot say enough good things about the location.

The room itself was very spacious, with amazingly comfortable beds, with tons of pillows. The kitchen had a dishwasher, refrigerator, stove, microwave and was fully stocked down to the bottle/can opener and paper towels. There was a washer and dryer, and if you wanted to buy a small bottle of laundry detergent, a Walgreens was situated a couple of doors down.

Free WiFi and tons of electric outlets for charging were available. Free hot breakfast in the morning. Check out was at noon. Staff was very friendly.

The elevators were slow during peak hours because they had to stop and go at various floors, and the bathrooms were small (both things were no big deal at all to us because all of the other things were so wonderful).

It's easy for me to give the hotel 5 stars because it was easily one of the best hotels stays we've had, and like I said above, the location just could not be beat. This is our new go-to hotel for trips to Chicago.

This hotel on North Michigan Avenue is quite a surprise. Our firm had used the Hard Rock Hotel for several years for Neocon and moved across the street to the Comfort Suites. We got bigger rooms for less money even though the rooms are of similar quality but just in a lower profile hotel.Still conveniently located.

Room Tip: Want a good deal.....stay here.

I got a great deal on priceline. Very short walk from the metra! The fd let us check in early, 2p so we didnt have to worry bout our bags! They helped us with info on what buses to take to near attractions. The suite was very beautifil,i wish i coulda stayed longer!! The bed was like sleeping on a cloud, great nights sleep. We ate dinner out so didnt take advantage of the stovetop...yes people a stove top!,refride,micro even a dishwasher with plates/cups! At c/o fd allowed us to keep our bags in the back room til we were done sight seeing for the day. The lemon water jug in lobby was a nice treat coming back in from muggy sticky lovely chicago weather.lol A free bfast was included..very yummyand the bfast attendants were constantly bringing out fresh food and refillin the coffees! We had a great experience and thankful for this hotel being an option to stay in the city! Staff even said welcome back as a greeting to the elevators!

Just stayed for 5 days and 4 nights for business purposes. Having stayed at a few other hotels in the immediate area I can easily say that THIS is the one I would return to. The rooms are bigger, better equipped, have nicer views, and, rather than charge you for every little thing, you get wifi, breakfast, fitness center, and a morning paper included.

The staff were extremely helpful and well informed. Juanita took care of my room to perfection.

Room Tip: If you ask for a front corner room you will get a great view either up or down Michigan Ave.
