“Nice property, I wish parents would keep screaming kids out of hallways”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Remember when Embassy Suites (and all it's previous iterations) came on line in the 80's? Everybody loved them, then over the last 30 years so many of the properties became run down, and there were half baked renovations and re-do's? Well, this property is an exception! Great renovation, top to bottom! Beautiful room, nice public spaces, incredible location! The only issue is that this is still a property that, due to the amenities, attracts a lot of families. Coupled with the open atrium design and parents that don't seem to care meant a constant cacophony of screaming and running children that could be heard throughout the property. So, nice place, but if you are planning on staying out late in Chi-town and sleeping in you might want to check out a quieter property. I will most likely stay here again, but not on a holiday weekend.

The hotel is undergoing some renovations, but it was still quiet. The complimentary breakfast and the happy hour suffered, however, due to a lack of seating. Some of the staff that have been there when we have stayed in the past have moved on, and the new ones are not quite as friendly, but were never rude.

I booked a last-minute trip over the holiday weekend for a girl's night out with my daughter. The location is ultra-convenient to just about everything!! It's a short walk to the El station (which we rode from the suburbs), there's a grocery store across the street, and of course Michigan Ave is just 3 blocks away. The room was clean (with the exception of cloudy, food-specked drinking glasses and dark fingerprint smudges on the bedroom door). The manager's reception is a nice gesture, but we skipped it -- the lines for beverages can be long. The morning breakfast with made-to-order omelets is OUTSTANDING!! There is construction on the 2nd floor and it appeared only 2 of 4 elevators were working (so be prepared to wait -- or use the stairs). The doormen were friendly and made us feel welcomed. The pool and work-out rooms were nicely maintained. If we ever spend another night in Chicago to play "tourists", this will be our first pick. Thanks ESH!

Past experiences have been good, but this trip lacked the service we are used to. Our room wasn't as clean as usual. The breakfast buffet had many items empty and we had to wait for clean plates. Checkout took an unusually long time.

Great location in Chicago, near shopping, restaurants and theaters, but incredibly noisy with the atrium, especially if anyone (like I did) sleeps in the front room of the suite. Breakfast and the managers reception were very nice, and the hotel employees were great.

Great location, 1 block from the Red Line. Parked car for free offsite and rode Red Line to all destinations (Parking onsite is too expensive). Front desk help were very helpful and nice. Hotel under construction but only downside was the wait for elevators. Only 2 working. Manager reception and FREE made to order omelets were GREAT!!! Would definitely stay there again but I am sure the price will be much higher as construction seems to be winding down. Great rooms with separate living area,clean as well.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that does not face State Street. Can hear sirens all night if you are a light slee...
