The Comfort Suites on Michigan Ave could not be in a more perfect location, situated smack in the middle of all Chicago attractions, a few blocks north of Millennium Park, a few blocks south of Miracle Mile, a few blocks west of the lake, and an easy train ride from either Chicago airport. It is located right alongside mostly much more expensive hotels, like the Hard Rock and the Hyatt Regency.
The lobby is very small and nondescript...we nearly missed the hotel several times just walking by. But the rooms are very large (especially for an affordable hotel in a ritzy downtown location) and nice. We had a suite with a king bed in its own private room (with a washer-dryer in the closet), a fold-out couch in the living room, and a well-appointed full kitchen (with all the bowls, plates, utensils, and cookware we needed). Everything seemed new and clean and well-maintained. Our high-floor corner room had views in 2 directions.
Two minor drawbacks of the hotel, which may not even be drawbacks for some: The mattresses are VERY soft. If you have a bad back, you probably won't appreciate the marshmallowy pillowtop bed mattresses or the thin fold-out couch mattresses. And the internet is wired ethernet only, which pretty much tethers you to the desk, rather than allowing you to enjoy connectivity across the whole enormous suite (Wanna check email in bed? Sorry, not possible, unless you pack your own really long ethernet cord)
For downtown Chicago, the value cannot be beat--you'd be hard-pressed to find more space for less money in a similarly awesome location--and I would definitely recommend this hotel to Chicago tourists.
