My 75 year old mother and I took my daughter to Chicago for her 18th birthday and we stayed at the ESH-Lakefront. Perfect location!
Taxi rides to most places were $6
Navy pier 1-1/2 blocks away to the east
Michigan Avenue 2 blocks to the west
Grocery store across street w/deli, soup bar and wine/beer
Walgreens around corner
Hop On-Hop Off trolley #7 stop across street
1 block north of Chicago River
Breakfast cook-to-order and buffet (get there early though)
Complimentary computers in lobby with printers to use (free) - $15 per day if you use your own
Wonderful views especially from the elevator
Bar in lounge/lobby area with large seating area
Sleeps 6 comfortably (separate bedroom)
2 closets/plenty of drawer space for families
The sofa bed had not been changed from last stay (we assumed), but the staff was accommodating and changed it. The front desk and staff at breakfast were friendly and helpful. Our flight didn't leave until 8:30 pm and we were able to leave our luggage there to finish our adventure in the city. The valets and bellhops were extremely nice and helpful.
From O'Hara airport, take the Blue eL to Lake/Clark terminal, take a taxi ($5.00) to the hotel. The train ride takes about 30-40 minutes and cost $2.25 each. We want to come back and this will be our choice hotel.
