The main purpose of our trip was to go to the Christkindle Market on Daly Plaza. The Embassy Suites was perfect, the location is very convenient to find by car from the Interstate and was within easy walking distance not only to the Christmas Market, but to Macy's, the Theatre District, Michigan Avenue and more -- the weather was rainy so our walking was limited but there is alot more to walk to near this hotel.
This is a very typical Embassy Suites - which is a GOOD thing....rooms are very spacious, full cooked to order breakfast and manager's cocktail reception is included. The cocktail reception is even located adjacent to the pool so the kids could swim while we enjoyed a few rounds with snacks. There were some reports of bedbugs, but we did not have any trouble at all with that -- the kids even slept on the pull out sofa sleeper with no issues.
Hotel valet parking was a little pricey - $44 per day, but there is a covered parking ramp adjacent which only charges $35 per day (with no in/out priviliges, though).
We will definitely stay at the Embassy Suites next time we go to Chicago for a weekend, all the amenities plus the location make it the perfect spot!More
