“Great Location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

This hotel is ideally located adjacent to beautiful Grant Park and Lake Michigan. My single facing the park had a beautiful view. But the desk lamp in that room didn't work. When my friend came I moved into a double. In that room the internet didn't work. The location of the hotel can't be beat -- within walking distance of the Art Institute and other important sights. The hotel staff is most helpful. But the condition of the internet and other services is very poor.

Good hotel just 10 blocks south of downtown. Transportation is no problem with Roosevelt station a mere 2 blocks away. Packed with good places to eat. Right in front of Grant Park. Everything seems very close by.

The Best Western-Grant Park is the closest hotel on the convention registry to the MacCormick Place for a convention. The price was great. The facility is old and needs updating but the rooms were clean and the area quiet. I slept well!

Room was basically clean but stuck in the 70s. Hotel is very close to the Field Museum/Planitarium/Aquarium campus and Soldier Field. Staff was friendly. An extremely windy day with tornados around and the noise and vibrations on the top floor were unsettling. Price was probably among the best in the loop area.

Located on a highly ranked street/avn called the "michigan avn", al locations r at a convenient cab distance. Parking is expensive from valet , I think $38 for overnight.
Overall a satisfying stay.
Staff is helpful within their limits.

No bottled water, average room, small bathroom, good customer service, parking issues, even with valet. Would look for another hotel if prices were comparable, if not, would stay again. Great location, good eateries nearby, try the chicago pizza, and hot dogs.

Room Tip: Ask for room that faces Mich. Ave if you really want the feel of Chicago.

The hotel was really great; good price for the location (like a 15 minute walk to the magnificent mile, and like 10 minutes to the big jelly bean!) and the beach is very close also.
The wifi didn't have that good of a connection, which we depended on since we were from Canada and couldn't use data!
All in all, it was a nice place to sleep for a couple of nights
