I quite liked this hotel because although it is showing its age a bit, it offers quite good value for dollar. I booked directly from the hotel website to secure an excellent rate and arrived to find my room included a microwave with spacious bar area. The room was also a generous size. Hallways were quiet and the hotel itself...

This is a reasonably priced, quality hotel situated just off the Magnificent Mile and an excellent choice for a short visit to Chicago. We were given a large room with a separate seating area after explaining we were visiting the city from Scotland which was very much appreciated. There are issues – the elevators are small and not the quickest...

We recently stayed at this hotel. We found the staff were disinterested and we had the impression that our visit was an inconvience to them. When we booked this hotel we were told that the room was an "elegent room". Thank goodness we weren't given an ordinary room. When we arrived at the room we found that it was a...

The hotel was well kept, convenient to Michigan Ave and a pleasant room. The linens were crisp and comfortable and the duvet was quite nice. I slept well. The throw pillows were quite shabby which seemed out of place for an otherwise great room. I understand there are some renovations planned. Bathroom was very nice with amenities . I would...

Enjoyed my stay here, room comfortable. Staff were very professional and helpful. Very central for tourists but I felt it was extra pricey especially restaurants in the vicinity. Lots to see and do - overall it was great.

A real find in a big city, comfortable, a bit old fashioned and tired, but good beds and facilities, very helpful staff, close to North Michigan Ave and transport, excellent value. Near the Water Tower which has food, shops and services.

My trip to Chicago, from the 9th to 14th of November, by chance coincided with 3 major events; The Cubs winning the World Series in baseball; Ireland beating the All Blacks in rugby at Soldier Field and the most amazing spell of weather for November in living memory. Not bad for a 5 day trip. My hotel experience, viewed through...

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.
