NO, it really is as good as everyone is saying. We stayed October 4-7. This our second visit to Chicago in 18 months, the prior stay was at the Chicago Hilton overlooking Lake Michigan. This was the perfect location we walked to everything. When we booked these dates I did not realize the Chicago marathon was the same weekend but what a thrill when the race began and they ran right in front of the hotel. The hotel was very supportive of the runners who stayed there providing a bag with fruit and water as they headed out the door.
The hotel was well run, the staff was very accommodating and the breakfast fare was very good. The rooms/suites were large, we stayed in a corner room which had a good view as well as a separate bedroom with a king size bed. Check in is on the sixth floor where the dining area for breakfast is also located. There is a nice fireplace with a sitting area for guests waiting to check in or meet friends. The gym room is small but did have the necessary equipment according to my wife. We did not use the pool and it did not appear to be a busy area. We had a family with children next door and across the hall from our room but never heard the children.
Looking forward to return to Chicago and if available we will return to the Homewood Suites downtown.
