I have stayed at this hotel many times in the past and while the hotel itself is just average, the location certainly is not. Right off Michigan Avenue, this place is so convenient that you overlook the décor which is a bit tired. My room however was very functional and updated. The price was good for this part of town...

A very warm & welcoming hotel. Comfortable rooms, good food & great bar. We enjoyed our historic hotel tour, conducted by the very kind concierge. We looked forward to a great night's rest after our busy Chicago days! We will definitely stay here on our next trip.

While this hotel is nicely located, it is beyond shabby! Every single piece of furniture and soft good needs to be replaced. Thread bare has a new meaning. Carpets unraveling and none too clean; upholstery in severe need of replacement; chipped and dented wood furniture; cheesy drapes. Ugh! Public rooms dark and dingy.

Some girlfriends from out of town and I booked this hotel through a Hotwire Hotrate deal so that we could stay in the city for the weekend. We didn't choose this hotel specifically, it was part of the mystery deal. It's advertised as a 4-star hotel, and I'm not really sure how. The lobby and the rooms are very underwhelming,... More

Whilst the impression was that the hotel had seen better days it did have a very nice ambiance. The location was very good and our room was quite reasonable for a city centre hotel. However, there were some downsides, in particular there was no room service which was very surprising, and we were referred to the bar if we wanted... More

This was my first visit to Chicago, and I have to say I was not disappointed. The people of Chicago who I had the pleasure to meet was very friendly and helpful.

Conveniently located in the Magnificent Mile just off Michigan Ave, this hotel affords you easy access to the area's shops, restaurants, bars, and the Northwestern Memorial Medical Campus. It's extremely quiet (it's on Walton, not Michigan), clean, and comfortable. We were met by friendly staff and made to feel at home. Wifi is free to those staying at the hotel.... More

We were at a different hotel that was across town and stayed here the second night. It was such an upgrade. Clean and nice accommodations. The location was wonderful, 5 min walk from one of the "beaches." The only downside was the price to park which was outrageous, as are all the hotels in Chicago. We parked in a garage... More

Staying in Streeterville

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.
