“Sort of a Great Location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

My husband and I recently stayed at the Hampton Inn and Suites in downtown Chicago. We found our suite to be nice and clean, and the staff to be very friendly and helpful. No complaints there. But the location... The hotel is in a great part of town for touring the city, and for enjoying the restaurants and shopping. However, it is right by a Chicago fire department, and a bar. When we arrived to the hotel, we noticed that earplugs were offered on our way to the elevator. Hint, hint. My husband and I happened to be there a few days after the Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup. Now being a native of Chicago, I know how Chicagoans love to celebrate when a Chicago team wins any championship. And Chicagoans were in full-swing that night partying up a storm at the bar next door. And the fire department was also in full-swing responding to emergencies. I think sirens were going off every ten minutes that night. My husband managed to sleep, but being a light sleeper, I didn't get any sleep that evening. And for that reason alone, I would never return to this hotel even though on every other level, it was a very nice hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 601. Nice enough room, but bad for noise level outside of hotel.

This hotel is well maintained, the employees are friendly and helpful. Sonja in the breakfast area was so precious and we felt as if we had known her for years. Brock, the Maintenance Engineer, was very friendly and helpful. The front desk staff was great.

The location was awesome, a decent walk to Michigan Street, free trolley to the Navy Pier. Lots to see and do in the immediate area. We will stay here again, and again, and again!!

Room Tip: Only thing is, it seems like a lot of fire trucks. But they offer free ear plugs

My wife and I both stay at Hampton Inn & Suites regulary, this staff was exceptional. The front desk, the kitchen and the doormen/valet parking personel were great. I have stayed at enough locations to know people who should be recognized as going beyond their job descriptions. This was our tird stay at this location and by far the current staff is the best.

We stayed one night in a corner suite. It fit our family very nicely. Two queen beds and a comfortable pull out sofa were just perfect for us. It is very convenient to the shopping and restaurants that interested us. We walked everywhere. The staff, particularly the bellmen who helped us were very friendly. Breakfast was good, fairly standard hotel breakfast but unlike some of the places we stayed there was plenty of room to sit and there was no waiting in line even though the hotel appeared to be very full. It was a pretty noisy night in terms of city noise - lots and lots of sirens, etc., but if it bothers you too much the hotel offered earplugs. It is downtown in a major city, after all, so noise is to be expected. The extra vanity in the bedroom was helpful for me and my three daughters who were all getting ready for dinner at the same time. I would definitely stay here again when I return to Chicago.

I am pleased to hear that the Double Corner Suite was suitable for you and your daughters. I know how hectic it can be for a family of all women to get ready all at the same time with just 1 bathroom, so I'm happy that the extra vanity helped.

We hope to see you ladies again soon on your next trip to the Chicago downtown area.

This Hampton is in a great location close to many restaurants and things to do in the heart of the North Loop district in downtown Chicago. Also very spacious and clean rooms with good amenities for the money. I would definitely stay at this location again in the future.

Great place to stay in Chicago for business or pleasure--20 min from Midway Airport and in the center of the action if Downtown 3 blocks from the chicago river on Dearborn. Very clean and an especially attentive and friendly staff. Great pool with an outdoor terrace. Breakfast is included in rate and is good basic hotel fare with a wide variety of choices from waffels, to scrambled egs yogert, pastries, fruit and juice-- and a money saver for those on a budget.
