“Upon entering the front door, you feel at home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013

I have stayed at this hotel a few times over the years and when I say its feels like home, I meant it. As the door is opened you see the familiar faces like Amer and his team, and even though thousands of faces have passed he remembers you. You feel welcome.

Checking in and getting your room is done with clean efficiency, even when there is a crowd.

Finally to your room which is spacious, clean and well serviced. In fact they actually have hi-def on the TV's not some stretched our picture; my pet hate.

They have a great breakfast, and those nights you do not wish to see the town, there is a pleasant dinner available most nights.

When you leave again, you pass through the entrance where before you get a chance the door is opened by Amer and his team. If you have a car parked with them it is ready and waiting, if you need a taxi you get Amer; rain snow or shine, jumping into the traffic with his whistle pulling one out of chaos of the Chicago traffic. Dedicated to service as only the Hilton chain can provide.

I would recommend this Hotel to any one visiting Chicago. You are within walking distance of the finest restaurants, shops and the river.

Alan M,

I want to thank you for sharing the experience of your recent stay with us. I was elated to see that you felt at home while at Homewood Suites downtown Chicago. I also see that you were able to take advantage of many of the amenities we offer such as the breakfast, dinner, and in-suite amenities. If it would not be too much of an inconvenience, would you be kind enough to “like” us on facebook? We look forward to seeing you again the next time you are in Chicago.

Sincerely,

I stayed at Homewood Suites Downtown Chicago with a group of 96 people this week. The staff is very courteous and efficient. Checking into a downtown property with 96 people is not an easy task. Usually the handling of luggage is a nightmare. But they did an excellent job with only a couple of glitches (same last names on tags)

For the price I could not find a better location....a block and a half off of Michigan Ave. short walk to the Navy Pier......numerous flagship restaurant locations within a block or two...and shopping? Numerous vertical malls withing a block provide shopping opportunities to die for.......

The rooms are all suites (real suites with separate bedrooms and baths) and very spacious. Usually when taking large groups to Chicago or NYC, you can count on having SMALL rooms. and tiny bathrooms. ( imagine 3 women in one room trying to get ready for an event) no problem here.

They provide a complimentary hot breakfast and M-Th a evening meal with drinks.

I can assure you my Chicago groups will be staying at the property in the future.........

We stayed a week in Chicago at Homewood Suites and enjoyed our stay. I prefer it to the hotels on the Magnificent Mile. The choice of colours in the rooms are a bit sombre, but the rooms are well equipped and clean and perfect for families. Swimming in the pool on the 19th floor surrounded by the skyscrapers is wonderful. The breakfast included in the price is quite OK and the dinner as well as drinks served on Monday - Thursday far exceeded our expectations. The Wi-Fi however was unreliable.

We would like to thank all the excellent staff at Homewood Suites. They spent time telling us of places to go to eat as well as sightseeing highlights in Chicago. Amer greeted us upon arrival with a " Happy Sunday Good Morning". His staff couldn't have been more helpful. Alfredo, in the dinningroom, was so pleasant to talk with. The rooms were more than we had expected in size and amenities. Hotel location is the best. The price of the room, which included breakfast and weeknight dinner, was so reasonable for a downtown location in a major city. Linda and Bob

I recently visited Chicago for the very first time for my 25th birthday. Coming from Kentucky, I assumed that all residents of Chicago were going to lack the philosophy of "southern hospitality." I assumed wrong. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by Amer who graciously assisted us with our bags and even let us park for a half hour at no cost. As soon as we checked into our room, I was greeted with a happy birthday phone call from Amer. The suite was great, the front desk was super nice, and the continental breakfast had everything we needed, You would not think we had a smoking room, because it smelled so fresh. During our checkout, the concierge (led byAmer) let us keep our bags there all day so we wouldn't have to tote them around downtown. They even kept our pet turtle we had bought in Chinatown safe and tagged until we got back. Although this hotel is designed for people on business trips, we could not have felt more welcome as tourists.

Roomy, friendly hotel offering free breakfast every morning and Manager's reception weeknights. Every room has full-size refrigerator, microwave and stove top. Staff is very helpful and on a busy street, so you will feel safe walking to and from the hotel day and night. Small indoor pool which is good for kids, but not lap swimming.
