Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

Not bad hotel clean pretty big rooms that are clean good breakfast and staff. Felt isolated so won't come back here. Cheapness with cups in room and Kleenex and tolit paper like sand paper. Really only picked it to be close to marathon.

I am so glad we found La Quinta. We stayed for 6 nights and really enjoyed out time in Chicago. We originallly had a room on the South side of the hotel which was quite noisy as it is next to an alleyway with trucks coming and going. We asked to change rooms and the staff happily obliged. We were given a room on the north side and it was great. The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. It is close to cafes and shops and we walked everywhere from here. It has a good little gym and breakfast is included in the price. It is a great breakfast with lots of selection to choose from. I would happily stay here again and wouldnt hesitate to reccomend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Try and get a room on the North side of the hotel. The higher up the better to get away from the roa...

This was a Hotwire booking and I was pleasantly surprised. The location was fantastic and an easy walk to the L and downtown attractions. The room was surprisingly spacious and comfortable. The bed was one of the most comfortable ones I've ever slept on. The bathroom was very clean and well equipped with lots of big, plush towels. Hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I never made it to the breakfast; it ended too early for me at 9am, given that the reasons I went to Chicago kept me out late. But, I really enjoyed the tea shop in the base of the hotel. Wifi worked great and there were lots of true HD channels available on the TV.

I have only two minor criticisms. First, and this is a common issue with most hotels, the air conditioner was very loud, and second, the noise from other guests in the hallway came through loud and clear.

Overall, this was a great stay and I will gladly stay here again.

Stayed four nights on business trip. Found the hotel to be quite convenient to a number of restaurants, the office and Wilis Tower (a must see). The front desk team is very personable and helpful and kindly offered to stow my bag until my room was ready (I arrived way before check in time due to flight schedule). Once checked in, I found the room to be of average size and comfort. Nothing special but nothing to complain about either. Of note, at the beginning of my stay, the room was spotless, but unfortunately by the last day, I could tell the room was given rudamentary service (e.g., bathroom counter wiped down, but not the sink, trash not picked up). Not a huge deal, but still worth mentioning. The included breakfast consisted of make-your-own waffles, scrambled and hard-boiled eggs, bacon, sausage, fresh fruit, Yoplait yogurt, and 2 or 3 types of cold cereal, a few different kinds of bread three different juice options, and the requisit coffee and tea. Check out was seamless.

Room Tip: If you don't want the smell of bacon and eggs in your room every morning, request a room that is...
