I booked this hotel mainly because of the price and location. It was VERY cheap and I found it to be within reasonable walking distance of everything I wanted to do (Cloud Gate, Magnificent Mile, etc.) You certainly get what you pay for. It's an extremely outdated place. The room was small...there were maybe 3 inches of space between the...

I was in Chicago mid-November on a business trip. In an attempt to save our company a little coin, my colleague and I booked our stay at the Chinatown Hotel. We thought we would give it the old college try and maybe discover a hidden gem. Wrong. Things to know about the Chinatown Hotel: 1) They DO NOT accept American...

I advice you to stay away from this "hotel" (hostel) at all cost. I was in Chicago for a few days in August 2011 and stayed here. First off there is no elevator and the staircases are dark. and scary. When I got to my room, it looked like the room wasn't cleaned in years,the carpret was stained, the walls...

It's in a great location. Chinatown Hotel is close to the loop and public transportation is easily accessible. The red line train stop is just a few minutes away. There are many, many great restaurants close by which makes dining easy. The staff is friendly and helpful. Of course you shouldn't be expecting a luxurious stay, but for the price,...

My husband and I were looking for inexpensive accommodations in Chicago: we were attending a concert that evening and didn't want to drive three hours home immediately after. We chose Chinatown Hotel for its price ($80 with taxes included), cheap parking ($10 for 24 hours), and location (just a few stops on the red line from the Loop). The neighborhood...

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights 09-12-2011 and unfortunlately was reminded in part of a real flophouse I stayed in Miami in December 1977. Clearly the operators of the Chinatown Hotel do the minimum and little else. I rented a "suite" for myself and a friend, and even a very experienced traveler like myself was surprised to find...

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures sprinkled throughout the neighborhood ranging from animal structures to pagodas, a tile mosaic, Chinatown Gate, and a Buddhist Temple.
