We stayed at this hotel over the 4th of July long weekend. The location is fantastic! A short walk to: Navy Pier, Michigan Avenue, countless restaurants, and shops. There is a brand new Dominicks (supermarket) across the street...perfect for stocking up on groceries.
The hotel is very new (2 years old?). Keep in mind that there are two Embassy Suites in Chicago...this is the newer and better one. The suites are very nice, quite new and some have wonderful city/lake views.
Due to the long weekend, the place was crawling with kids. My partner and I don't mind kids but this verged on ridiculous. Both the free (and very good) breakfast buffet and the evening cocktail hour were overwhelmed by the capacity crowds.
Parking is steep ($36 per day self park)...but at least it is located in the same building.
An elaborate movie theater and a bowling alley are also located in the same building.
P.J. Clarkes (Burgers, pizza, pasta, steaks, etc) is a fantastic restaurant located on the street level of the hotel.
Would I stay here again? Yes!
