Hi, I stayed at the Congress Plaza Hotel because of the location for the Chicago Marathon. Wow, it was perfect!!! I woke up at 6:00 a.m., walked out of hotel at 6:45 a.m. and was standing in line at 7:00 a.m. in time for a 7:30 a.m. start. Perfect!!! This hotel is in walking distance to everything. We walked to the McCormick Convention Center for the race packet pickup, we walked to the History Museum, and the Shedd Aquarium, and we even walked to the Navy Pier all from our hotel. The hotel is older and has the smells that might come with an older hotel, but our room was clean, the beds were comfortable and we had a nice flat screen TV. If you are looking for a convenient location for a race like the Chicago Marathon and want to be near Grant Park, and all that this area has to offer I highly suggest this hotel. Everyone at the hotel was very friendly and accommadating.
