The room, the service and the location - all deserve a 5/5 rating. The breakfast was good with lots of healthy choice. The kitchen in the suite was big and fully-equipped. Would love to stay there again and again when I visit Chicago with family. A HIGHLY RECOMMENDED PLACE.

The lobby was very clean and nicely decorated for the holidays. Our room was a 1 bedroom suite with a king size bed, pull out sofa and a fully equipped kitchen....

Cons: The wifi is terrible !! Really slow!!! And if you are in your room you only have wifi in the living room not in the bed. Breakfast was so poor I couldn't believe it. And the gym is too small!! Pros: Complimentary snacks and Location. Definitely not worth 400 usd a night.

The location is excellent when you like shopping. The hotel is nice and the staff is very helpful and friendly. The rooms are big, clean and have everything that you expect in working order. Most annoying for me was the very slow Wi-Fi - even after upgrading to premium. The style of the hotel is very predictable and nothing special.

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.
