“Definitely stay here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2011

Very comfortable hotel with modern amenities and a great staff. Hot breakfast everyday is a nice touch as is the free internet. Bed is honestly the most comfortable I've ever slept in. Highly recommended.

We were so pleassed with this hotel!! We went to chicago for a short trip and we could not have been happier. This hotel was not only a huge bargain but clean very very nice the staff was amazing and so helpful and friendly!!! I had left a camera in my car and boy they went to get it and came up to our room to give it to us. Took care of cabs for us, told us clubs to go to and how to get to different locations we needed. A breeze to get to off the freeway, FABULOUS location and the breakfast was not only FREE but very very good. I would recommend highly to friends and family and will be going back in a heart beat!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you homewood suites!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We stayed here over new year's weekend with friends and had an enjoyable stay.
The hotel is in a perfect location and is only blocks away from Michigan Avenue and within walking distance to many great restaurants. There is also a shopping mall right across the street.
The room was very clean and had plenty of space to accommodate five people. Our suite also included a pull out bed. The bathroom was a decent size and well maintained. The free breakfast was an added bonus with lots of choice.
Would totally go back.

The location was amazing (easy walk to both the north and south loops, and of course the Mag mile). The staff was so friendly! I'm Canadian and I can say that not even WE have people as hospitable as there was at the Homewood hotel. I'm only staying at this hotel when I visit Chicago from now on.

I recently returned from a weekend trip to Chicago and a two-night stay at the Homewood Suites. The hotel is easy to find, a mere block away from the Red Line's Grand station. The pleasant desk clerk had me checked-in in less than two minutes, and I was off to my room. The one bedroom suite was big, with a proper kitchen (with a stovetop and full-size fridge), work desk, sleeper sofa and flatscreen tv in one room, and a King bed, flatscreen tv, and bathroom in the other. Clean, comfortable and with a great view of downtown.

The complimentary breakfast was very tasty with numerous hot and cold options. I was there on the weekend, so I didn't have a chance to test out the light dinner that's served Mon-Thu, but based on the breakfast, I'd guess it's pretty tasty as well. In addition to Michigan Ave, and all the downtown Chicago landmarks, if you're looking to save some cash, there are also a number of fast food restaurants (Chipotle, Jimmy John's, McDonald's) within a couple block walk of the hotel.

The price was great for the location and amenities (free wifi!) provided, and I just can't see myself staying anywhere else when I next come to Chicago.

We spent a few days in Chicago to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Upon arrival the staff provided us with a complimentary bottle of wine. The staff was very friendly. The breakfast buffet was always crowded but well stocked. Every member of the hotel made us feel welcome. This was our second trip to Chicago and to this hotel. It is a great value!
