Reasonable rates for the area. I counted 61 people in the pool at night-way too many! The pool is small. My ratings are average because we had a couple of staff that were rather grumpy and soured our experience with check in. Breakfast is excellent with great variety to meet everyone's needs. Evening reception sounds great but we were out...

This hotel is an amazing location for exploring Chicago. I have previously stayed at the Sheraton across the road yes the hotel was nicer the however the embassy suites offered everything the Sheraton did and more. The free breakfast and 4 free drinks in the evening were a excellent benefit and the staff were so friendly. There is a car...

The Embassy Suites did it all well. Their new card system for the evening reception and breakfast help with the crowds that we had experienced in the past. The room was clean and spacious and the kids loved the pool. We used digital check in as well as the digital key and both work well.

Great location, Whole Goods and Target literally across the street! Plus within walking distance to the Navy Pier and Michigan Ave. Free made to order breakfast. Friendly staff and great room layout selection. Pool was pretty small and the house keeping barely cleaned, more just straightened up. But overall can't complain, we got the Winter rate!! Woohoo!

Rooms and staff were pleasant; food is good. Complimentary Breakfast and Evening Reception were well appreciated. WiFi was intermittent as was TV reception. Because I was ill on Tuesday, I didn't pursue resolution. It is a clean and friendly establishment. Would return but would address WiFi, especially for business trip. Thanks.

We love Embassy Suites when traveling with our 2 kids because we can count on a solid breakfast for everyone and at least a few drinks and snacks each night. With that factored in, the value can't be beat, especially considering we enjoy a suite which allows kids and grownups to sleep/watch TV separately! The facilities at this Embassy Suites...

Staying in Streeterville

Neighborhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
