Older hotel with some upgrades. Within walking distance of our downtown office and close to the highway. Very polite and efficient staff. For some reason, hotel prices went through the roof the week I was there. My room, as basic as it was, cost over $300/night + $39/night for parking. No idea why.

I went to ASCO meeting 2 weeks ago and couldn't find a room in my colleagues hotel. So I stayed in Crown Plaza Chicago Metro. Really a nice hotel with friendly employees. I especially want to thank Janita who helped me to solve an important problem of mine. She was so kind and supportive on dealing with the problem.

Stayed here during the ASCO conference.My check in late at night was quick, the reception staff always friendly and helpful. My room was comfortable and clean and spacious enough. Unfortunately it overlooked the busy road junctions which did mean that I was aware of heavy traffic noise through the night. The breakfast service was a disappointment for two reasons. Despite...

Good breakfast. Besides Greek Neighbourhood with important restaurants, near it has an organic center of fruits and vegetables, called Mariano's Fresh Market.

Very nice accommodations and location for a quick meeting in Chicago. Food was good and the bar was lively. The gym was average. No music or tv and too warm for my taste. Didn't use the pool, but it looked great.
