I'm a big Embassy Suites fan in general. I don't know if it's because I consider myself as important as a diplomat or the fact that I really like the extra space you get. I stayed here on a short work trip in December and the hotel served my needs well. When looked for a hotel I noticed that there...

We really enjoyed our stay here. The breakfast was great, the staff was friendly and the room was clean. The location was great for having kids with on our trip. The only down side was the size of the pool.

I attended an economics conference and booked Embassy Suites in Jan 2017. The room was large, clean and quiet. I liked the proximity of grocery stores, theaters, banks and public transportation. The area feels safer since it is in North Loop.

I only stayed here for a night,but it was great! In the middle of everything! You can reach just about anything in a short taxi ride, if that. The front desk clerk was friendly and had a few recommendations for dinner that I loved! It was a short and sweet stay, but I will be back for you Chicago!

My wife, adult daughter, and I had a terrific stay the week before Christmas. Needless to say that the town and the hotel were hopping. The service was great and the room was terrific. I booked a room on a higher floor. The scene below was impressive. The lines were long bit the breakfast was worth the effort.

Stayed here for a quick overnight in the city with the kids. The suites are a good size and accommodated our family of 4 comfortably. Room was good & location was good. My only suggestion would be to make sure you wake up early if you are planning on having their breakfast. By 8 the line was long. As the...

The rooms themselves are pretty nice - suite style with a work area and the bedroom is in the back away from the atrium. So it's quiet for sleeping. Beds were reasonably comfortable for hotel beds. Front desk staff was amazing. Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable about the area. The complimentary breakfast is really very good, great selection and a good time...

Neighbourhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
