“Club Quarters does budget hotel well!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

This is a budget hotel and does that VERY well. It is extremely well designed, with sleek, well coordinated and contemporary room interiors, combined with a dreamy white marble entry staircase, and elegant artwork. But it is the extra features I appreciate, such as good lighting and adequate shelving in the bathroom, in addition to all standard items. The location can't be beat. I was sent here when I came for a meeting by a national organization and they chose well. The hotel feels like a boutique hotel, with its friendly staff and cozy second floor, lounge, with LOTS of free munchies, coffee, tea and sodas. One feels at home. Unless you have five star pretentions, make Club Quarters at 75 Wacker your choice for downtown Chicago.

Room Tip: Rooms toward the river are a bit more expensive than those toward the back. We were offered an upgr...

This hotel is unique in many ways. The rooms have an uncanny size, and a key card is needed once inside the elevator to get to your desired floor. Outside of that, my stay was great. The $35 valet is highly recommended. Service was speedy (provided that you call 15-20 mins prior to picking up your vehicle so that it's ready when you come out of the door). In/out privileges are unlimited and the valet staff was professional and friendly. The hotel staff made check-in and checkout expedient as well. The room itself (a Superior Suite) was comfortable for its size with a nice, artsy sliding door for the bathroom, a spacious closet and decent fridge and fancy desk area. The cream of the crop is the breath-stealing view of the Chicago River with its might historic drawbridges and the bustle of city life below. The windows to the rooms open completely and do not lock in the raised position, so be careful (especially with your camera when taking pictures out of the window). Great value. The small size of the rooms is made up for with all of the great things to do for blocks, or even feet away.

Stayed 1 night, 2 rooms (1 Suite $164/night + 1 Club/small size with partial river view $119/night) in Nov 2012. It's $100+ cheaper vs. other hotels for that 1 night

+ Excellent location, we walked everywhere and easy to get to by bus. It is right by Hotel 71, and easy access to bus - 6, 124, 146, and anything on Michigan Ave
+ Free wi-fi, club lounge (coffee)
+ Rooms are clean, decent size even for Club size (Double bed instead of Queen advertised though)
+ River view is pretty, even better if you have "full unblocked view". Our 1205 was blocked about 30%, facing the Trump tower directly
+ They offered luggage storage after check-out in a locked room. You need to get someone to help you though


- Rooms without views, given its great location, kinda disappoint. I went up to the tower for some views but none found in Stairs

* Late-check is $35 to 3 pm standard rate; $84(?) to 6 pm

Room Tip: Check lobby for upgrade rates. It was $15/night to Superior and $25/night to Suite for our night..so...

The major advantage of this hotel is it's location. Perfect image from the windows, close to everywhere in downtown. I spent nearly 1 week in Chicago at there and almost walk to everwhere from the hotel. But the room is not so luxury, not bad. According to the price, it's not cheap. But you give this money to location in my opinion...

Room Tip: Rooms that see the river has a good view, espaicilly in night.

The perfect place for the biz traveler to Chicago who wants a good location but does not require (or may not have the time for) the amenities and other trimmings that higher-priced hotels in The Loop have on offer. The room was certainly no bigger than it needed to be, but it was absolutely quiet and came with a stunning view over the cityscape. I found the hotel's staff courteus and helpful. Highly recommended.

great location. well managed. reasonable. our room was small but much thought was given to making it comfortable.
good food close by. staff helpful. business friendly. recommend and will stay here again if in Chicago. note: bring very
warm clothes if visit Chicago in winter. subway and bus locations encourage walking and that's much better when warm!

I recently booked two rooms for a friend's bachelorette party, and the location of this hotel could not get any better. Right between the mag mile and state street shopping, we were in heaven! We loved the water bottle and coffee service on the 2nd floor, it's a great way to stay warm and caffeinated for all of our adventures as well as a great area for just hanging out together and catching up. Our rooms had nice views and a little sleeping alcove along with a great living room area equipped with couches, TVs, table and chairs and a little kitchenette with a sink, microwave, and mini fridge. A special thanks to Kristen at the front desk who checked me in, explained the amenities, and was especially helpful in recomending great restaurants in the area suitable for our group (which is not easy with so many different dietary needs gluten free, vegetarian, etc...). She even followed up to make sure we were able to get reservations. We all wished we could have stayed the whole week! We will definitely use this hotel for future stays in Chicago, such a great value!

Room Tip: Ask for a river view!
