My sister and I checked into the Comfort Suites for four nights to attend a wedding over Labor Day weekend. We did not have a car and relied on public transportation. No problem with this location. The El is about six or so blocks away, and you may want to take a taxi to the hotel if you have heavy luggage. Off site parking is available for a daily rate and is nearby. We like our space as we have traveled together before, so I checked out suite hotels in downtown Chicago. Most were very pricy. Comfort Suites offered the best rates for the four night stay averaging $125.00 per night for a one bedroom suite. The room has a pull out sofa so it can sleep two couples or kids. There are rooms with two queen beds and two separate bedrooms, but they were booked on the Labor Day weekend. We were given a room with a king size separate bedroom and we were not disappointed. First of all the location is superb, everything within walking distance right outside the door, ten minutes to Millennium Park, the Michigan Ave. water taxis and fabulous shopping and good restaurants right on the street outside the hotel. The room was exceptional for the price. A true mini-apartment with full kitchen, washer dryer, ironing board, security safe and separate bedroom with king size bed. The view from the 12th floor encompassed the Chicago river, Trump Tower and the room had corner windows that made the room bright and cheery. The room was spotless, well-stocked with utensils, thick white towels and above average linens. Paper towels and dish soap were provided. The king bed had six luxurious pillows and a beautiful duvet cover over the comfortable bed. Two flat screen T.V.s were in the rooms along with an adequate work space and office chair for business travelers. We had an occasion to call the front desk for small maintenance issues, and the technicians were prompt, courteous and would not even accept our tip's. All in all, the staff was extremely helpful and courteous. The breakfast room was small but seated everyone, the breakfast was about average for this type of property, and the staff worked hard to replenish eggs, waffle batter and juices as they were depleted by the hungry crowd. The fitness center had nice equipment for a quick work out and was stocked with ice and a vending machine. An accessible business center allowed for printing out boarding passes and checking emails, as I did not bring my laptop. We were quite happy during our stay and stocked the room with quick snacks and drinks from the local Walgreens. Since we attended wedding festivities, we did not cook, but the four burner stove and oven, full size dishwasher(the maid even loaded our dishes) and cooking utensils allow for full meal preparation in the room if needed. The room was quiet, we heard no street noise and each floor seems to house only 4 apartments, so long hallways are not an issue. This hotel is excellent for active travelers and families that want a great value, clean and safe environment and like the amenities of a kitchen and separate sleeping area. The bathroom is small but functional and clean, and was stocked with small toiletries. My sister and I could have stayed there for two weeks and felt perfectly comfortable. I rate this property as a great hidden gem amongst Chicago's many competitors for travelers that like the options to prepare a few meals, do a load of laundry and take advantage of the great location to get around with Windy City!
