4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

We stayed here over the Marathon weekend and found the hotel to be clean and welcoming. I stayed in an King Suite which had a microwave and fridge plus an lounge area. The bed and bathroom were very modern and clean. I found the room to be directly on Franklin which was noisy with the traffic so between 6-8 am I did wake up constantly. The location is great and there are plenty of shops nearby. The room had a coffee machine which was topped up with coffee on the first two days but by day four of my stay they stopped. The coffee machine was faulty but fixed very quickly after I reported the fault. The breakfast was yummy although stops at 9am, maybe it could be extended during the week?? I would definitely stay here again and will recommend to friends. Don't expect much from the pool its v small.

We stayed here for the last weekend of september and it was a good experience. The room (two double beds) was quite spacious and clean, the location is central and near subway and shops, the staff was friendly and the complimentary breakfast was tasty and abundant. I would definitely recommend it!

Spent 1 night at the La Quinta during a business offsite. I did not expect much, but the lobby was very inviting, the check in was quick and pleasant and the room was spacious and clean. For the price and location, it is certainly worth a solid recommendation.

I just spent 9 days in Chicago - 2 nights at the InterContinental on the Mag Mile, 3 nights at the Hilton Palmer House and 3 nights at LaQuinta. I expected LaQuinta to be my least favorite hotel. Surprisingly I had my best stay here. It may not be as plush as the other 2 but I was treated much better here. Every time I entered the building I was greeted by the very pleasant staff. The other 2 hotels were noisy. I slept soundly every night here. There was a problem with my toilet not flushing. By the time that I returned to the room, it was fixed. The breakfast is varied and very good. I especially liked the ‘make your own waffle’ stations. The breakfast room was full every day but you could always get a table. There is an “L” stop less than 2 blocks away. The location has its pluses and minuses. It is in the financial district so it is quiet at night and on weekends which means there aren’t a lot of people walking around esp at night. I did walk alone at night without any issues. It was great having a coffee maker, fridge and microwave in the room. The room was large and spotless. I have no complaints at all about this hotel. They offer a great service without breaking the bank. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel on March 10th,2013. A very pleasant experience, walking distance from Union Station. Room was a good size, bed was comfortable & the FREE breakfast was fantastic. Definitely would recommend this hotel if you are travelling to Chicago. We have a Janitorial Business and this Hotel was clean.

We got a great rate through Living Social for this Loop hotel. Because it is a business travel hotel, the weekend rate was great and the room was very comfortable. The amenities were very good, including a strong free continental breakfast. Importantly, you can travel to many desirable locations easily from the Loop, including the lake and its parks and museums by foot and outlying neighborhoods by train only a block away.

Room Tip: Take a king bed even if there is a need for two because the divan is a comfortable sleep - you can s...
