Best Western Grant Park Hotel
Ranked #132 of 191 Hotels in Chicago
Reviewed April 10, 2014

I was in Chicago for a business trip. I was given a choice of four host hotels for the convention I attended, but the lowest rate for them was $200 per night. I did a quick search and found the Best Western Grant Park for an average of $110 per night. The best part was that it was only two blocks from the host hotels. The location was very convenient. The nearest subway was a short two block walk. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I would stay again and would highly recommend this property.

Great view when I got my lake view that was requested in advance. As a diamond member I fully expect wine and cheese upon arrival. After I requested it, it was provided and was great. I would recommend giving them a shot, parking is expensive $38.00 a night or you have to park off site and make the walk which can be interestingly windy.

My son in law is being deployed to Afghanistan and we wanted to give him and our daughter a nice weekend with family. So they came in from Anchorage and we came in from SD and other family from AZ and Chicago. We met at the hotel and were given adjoining rooms, one which faced the lake and also had a view down Mich. Ave. Ask for rooms 802 and 804. They are very small but you can't beat the price and the view. Enjoy breakfast at the Yolk around the corner.

I was in town for a conference at McCormick Place. This was a wonderful place to sleep and easy access to the bus to MP. The staff was very nice. I was very happy with the price. The restaurant connected to the hotel was a great place to grab coffee and a quick breakfast.

Do NOT trust the walking directions from google maps to McCormick Place. Seriously- take the Blue line bus south (Bus stops right around the corner). Super easy and worth the $2.25. The parking is valet and they will grab your car at anytime if you need to get something out of the car.

I am considering bringing my family to stay at this hotel with me next year for this conference if the weather is nice.

This well located hotel has a 60's ambience in the architecture, but is very well maintained and meticulously cleaned. Get a lakeside room if you can...what a view! Walking distance to many attractions, with the art of Grant Park just across Michigan Avenue. Many trendy eating spots in this rapidly gentrifying neighborhood. The staff was amazing, well informed, ready and willing to volunteer services, efficient in taking care of paperwork. The restaurant is somewhat lacking in definition and imagination, but there's a great breakfast spot next door.

Good Value for a hotel on Michigan avenue near the museums and Shedd Aquarium - all walkable in nice weather. Also very good restaraunts within walking distance. We enjoyed our stay. Slept well in the comfortable bed with really soft pillows. WiFi was not the best, and the hotel is not the most modern, but certainly more than adequate. We would stay here again - and will soon!
