We (3 adults) just spent a glorious 'long' weekend (7/11 Dec) at the Homewood Suites. Firstly its in an ideal location, very central. A two min walk to the Magnificent Mile & a 5min walk to Macy's on State street. It's only a block away from Grand cta tube stop on the red line. It was so easy to get here by cta from O'Hare (with just one easy change from blue to red line. The trip back by cab was $40. Our suite on 16th floor was clean, roomy with a full kitchen. Free breakfast & free light evening meal mid week. It cost us about $600 for our 4 night stay - late checkout (15.30) on last day was an added bonus.
