“Great value and perfect location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2010

I took my daughter downtown Chicago for a 17th Birthday overnight stay with a few girlfriends. Many hotels were booked up, so we stayed at the Homewood Suites by Hilton on Grand Avenue. From the service to the comfort and quality, I must say I was very impressed. Not only was a buffet breakfast included, and free coffee and tea available 24/7, the Concierge gave us a free movie rental for the special Birthday occasion. We found that the location was excellent for shopping (across from Nordstrom's) and dining out (so many choices, we had a hard time deciding). After dinner, the girls swam in the very nice pool atop the hotel (with a fabulous view). When we wanted a pick me up; free coffee, tea and hot chocolate were abundant in the lobby. All in all, the Homewood Suites was the perfect choice for a getaway with teenagers.

We stayed here Valentines weekend with our two teenage boys. We had a king suite with a pullout couch and they provided us with a rollaway- no extra charge. The room was very spacious with a full kitchen. The location is fantastic- we walked everywhere. Located between Michigan Ave and Rush Street, it's close to Ginos's Pizza, Navy Pier, ESPN Zone, Trader Joes, etc. The breakfast each morning exceeded our expectations. Full hot breakfast including bacon, sausage, hash, biscuits and gravy, eggs potatoes and more. The staff was very friendly and helpful- everyone from the desk staff to the valets. Our room was very clean and because it was a corner room, we had a fantastic view of the city. We would definitely stay here again and commented all weekend about what a find this hotel was. It was not upscale- but it was very clean, spacious room, friendly staff, pool for the kids and great free breakfast. Great hotel for families.

I travelled to Illinois from the UK on business, and booked Friday and Saturday night at the Homewood Suites so that I could have a weekend in the city. The location was perfect, walking distance to Michigan Ave for all the shopping and touristy stuff, and literally 100 yards to the L (red line) for getting out to the surrounding areas.
The room was great: not exactly 'wow' decor but clean and really well stocked. I was expecting a 'suite' to be a larger than average hotel room with seperate sitting area. It was actually a 3-room mini-apartment, with an open lounge/kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom. Two flatscreen TVs and a huge bed. Breakfast buffet eggs and bacon were great for the hangover(!), and the kitchen meant that I could cook up some lunch rather than eat out if needed.

We stayed for 3 night and 4 days at the Homewood Suites with our 3 yr old and it was bliss! Where do I start?
The hotel staff greeted us everyday. Breakfast and dinner was great (and didn't cost extra!). The pool area was extremely well kept and the view was beautiful. I can't praise the valet service enough. They were prompt, with a great personality, and even kept an extra eye out for our daughter to make sure she was safe from all the downtown Chicago traffic. Free WiFi, and in and out parking privileges are sometimes hard to find in this town, so it this was a huge plus!!
The suite was VERY nice and the housekeeping was great. They even did our dishes for us! Michigan Ave was just down the street and up a flight of stairs, while Millenium Park was a quick walk away. We come to Chicago often and will definitely ONLY stay at this hotel!

We stayed at this hotel while we attended the Strcitly Sail Boat Show. There was a free city shuttle to Navy Pier but we enjoyed the walk which wasn't more than 2 miles. There is a great shopping mall right across the street. Bonus! And lots of good restaurants in this area. The suite was very nice with all the amenities. Breakfast each morning was outstanding. It's a hot breakfast with fruit, juice, bagels, yogurt. Well just about any breakfast food you can imagine. With the suite you have the living room to buffer any noise in the hall so great place to get some rest too.

I had to be away from my family for 5 nights. I dreaded staying in a hotel room, but the Homewood was wonderful. The living/kitchen area was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. It was nice to be able to spreadout. The staff was very friendly. It was nice to have breakfast provided in the mornings and the meal in the evening. I would easily book another stay at this hotel!
