The porters are very friendly and helpful. (Helped us find a driver to the airport without using a conventional taxi. This was the most comfortable, least stressful ride while traveling. ) Most importantly, the rooms are clean and modern. However, there are too many cons associated with this hotel to be my first choice when returning to downtown Chicago. I... More

First of all, the location of the hotel is about a 15 minute walk to the Navy Pier and likewise, short walks to the River Walk and the Michigan Avenue and the Magnificent Mile. During... More

Everything one would expect from an Embassy Suites, but the excellent staff make it an exceptional place to stay. The location is also ideal for folks looking to experience some of the best attractions in Chicago. A special call out to Pat who stopped by while I was at their complementary breakfast to check with me on my stay.

We have stayed at Embassy Suites in other cities, but this was one of the best. Better choice of food at the evening reception, and the quality of the mattress was excellent. Everyone we dealt with at the hotel was very accommodating.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights while in town for the Chicago Rock 'n Roll half marathon.

It was in a great location and the hotel was very clean. The hotel gave me free wifi for signing up for Hilton Honors. The location was great but I did not use the pool or the gym. The office staff was very nice and the breakfast buffet was ok. The location alone is worth staying there.

This hotel had a beautiful view of Lake Michigan and the Chicago River. Within walking distance was Nsvy Pier, Whole Foods market to stock fridge, AMC movie theater, and many shops and restaurants. Our room had an extra sink in the bedroom which helped our entire family get ready and keep the bathroom open for the next shower.

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.
