“Not for a group of 4.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

I stayed here recently for a weekend of museum and shopping fun. When I booked the room, I indicated I had four in my party and would need to have two beds. We had the largest room and it had a queen bed and a pull out sofa that slept one at best. The sofa bed was thin and worn out (I could feel every bar beneath me), luckily me youngest son is small so, he could fit with me but overall it was very uncomfortable. Do not book if you need to sleep more than three! Also, they do not allow cots in the rooms with a pull out sofa due to fire code.

The room otherwise was small yet clean, staff was friendly and the refillable water bottle station was convenient. The quick walk from Union Station made it easy to get to, however when I inquired about a Saturday morning breakfast option I was sent to a Corner Bakery that was closed on the weekends. Staff may want to educate themselves more on the hours of close eateries.

Well, they did it again. After a stay at this hotel back in August and the absolutely fabulous service from Erin Loughlin, I kept my promise of never staying anywhere else when I visit Chicago. And, because I love the great city of Chicago, I had to go back. This time, I had no question where my lodging would be as I trekked to and fro across the city streets. I LOVE the personal service. I have told so many people about my great experiences and I hope they choose to patronize this great hotel, too. Like Arnold Schwarzenegger said, "I'll be back!"

Stayed here for 3 nights this summer for tourism. It was fairly quiet and clean. Our double bed room was no frills ...basic but clean. As to be expected, the room is on the small side. Beds were comfy and bathroom was gleaming. staff was attentive and friendly. Convenient location in Chicago's loop. The Monroe and Jackson L stations are close by. The Chicago institute of Art, Willis Tower, and Adams st. are all within comfortable walking distance. It's about a 10 minute walk to Millennium park and the Magnificent Mile is a little farther... if the weather is nice though, totally doable. There are free water bottles you can fill up that was the icing on the cake. Fill one up and stick it in the backpack before you head out to explore Chi town. It took a little while to get the hang of the elevator but it's cake. They share the building with another hotel called Club Quarters so remember which elevators are yours. Spacious office center to print boarding passes or check your email. I highly reccomend the Elephant and Castle downstairs for breakfast or a drink later. Would stay here again without giving it a second thought.

If your looking for a Great Hotel near Union Station this might be the right choice. Straight down Adams street to Clark and your there. This information is for the person looking for a nice / affordable accomodation within walking distance to the train station. There is one other Hotel located between Central Loop Hotel and Union Station, but the other Hotel was much more than twice the price (at least when I was looking). Stayed in Room #914 - corner room, street views, windows on two walls, small kitchenette.
Room is somewhat small, but very well organized and efficient, and has everything one should expect. Very clean, comfortable and extremely quite (note; we were there Thanksgiving weekend and all rooms were sold out). Only mention this because, we did not hear anyone else, no doors closing etc..Would definately recommend this Hotel to anyone traveling to Chicago.

I very much liked hotel. The arrangement - is better be not to thinking up. The subway (a direct branch from the airport) is simply in three minutes, five minutes and you near Art Institute of Chicago.Magnificent Mile is nex to and lake Michigan too.I adore Chicago, is ready to come back here again and again and, of course, I will choose this hotel for the following visit to Chicago

Room Tip: in hotel it is possible to use washing machines free of charge

I had a last minute cancellation to my boss's reservation due to the storms in the North East. We made the reservation through Expedia, and it was a same-day cancellation, so I thought we were doomed for sure in terms of getting a refund. But everyone I spoke with was very kind and helpful, from the reservations agent to the front desk agent to the Manager, Ryan.

We got a full refund, because we'd been flattened by Hurricane Sandy and then the nor'easter and were unable to travel. I know this was a one-time kind of thing, but I so appreciated their willingness to take our circumstances into account when making their decision. My boss was really impressed and we'll definitely be staying there in future!

I frequently travel to Chicago for a week or more at a time. I love staying at the Central Loop. it is convenient to the CTA lines (Orange line is only 2 blocks away) plus it is convenient to offices within the "loop".

I like to stay in their kitchenette rooms. They offer a great alternative to dining out or take out (for the extended stay business traveler.) I am able to make easy meals in the microwave. Just LOVE this hotel for business travel.

I have to say, all the hotel staff has been very accommodating and so nice to work with. One time I had to "change rooms" when I was unexpectedly delayed in Chicago for another 6 days. I couldn't stay in the same room as it wasn't available so technically I had to check out of one room and check into another during the business day. They offered to move my luggage for me (including the food in the fridge) to my new room while I was away at work for the day.

I can't say enough about how great my experiences have been at this hotel.

Room Tip: If you are staying in the "loop" for more than a few days, upgrade to the kitchenette room...
