A hotel with good location and park view

Our room is upgraded to a lake view. It's very beautiful to see the night view and sunrise. See full review

Catch a ball game, visit major museums, relax on a budget
The Best Western Grant Park Hotel offers visitors a great downtown location to take in all of Chicago's main attractions. Chicago's hustling and bustling Loop district, Millennium Park, Soldier Field (home of the Chicago Bears) and three of the city's most notable museums (the Art Institute of Chicago, the Adler Planetarium, Shedd Aquarium and the Field Museum of Natural History) are all within easy reach. Families will find the accommodations both comfortable and affordable. Savor a wide range of cuisines in Mei's Kitchen, where Asian, American and Italian dishes compete for guests' attention. Looking for a little exercise? Take advantage of the seasonal outdoor pool and sundeck or visit the fitness room. It's also an easy train ride away from both O'Hare and Midway Airports.

    worked for the visit

    Since we primarily slept here and were otherwise out enjoying Chicago it was adequate. I would not suggest it for a long stay. The room was relatively small and the temperature control was fairly noisy. I would rank it as average but we will pay the extra and stay elsewhere next time we are in Chicago.

    The museums obviously. Wear comfy walking shoes and plan on more time than you think you will need.

    Filthy and Smelled

    Stay away. Looked and smelled like giant truck stop. Smokey, dirty, old decor. From the minute I stepped into the building I wanted to leave. Stained carpet, curtains, etc.

    Great Place to Stay

    My wife and I chose this hotel because of the location, which was wonderfully located close to many of the Museums (Shed Aquarium, Art Institute, Field Museum, and more). It was also close to Buckingham Fountain and 'The Silver Bean'. What I was plesantly surprised was its close proximity to the El (Red Line is 2 blocks away). Everything else was accessible via the El and the Busses. As for the hotel itself ~ Average. If you are looking for a place to sleep while you spend a weekend in Chicago, this is a great place to stay. If you intend to stay at the hotel all day, I can see where this hotel would be lacking (dark and narrow hallways, plaster coming off the ceiling in the bathroom, slight slope to the floors), but for the price and location, no better place to base your weekend of sightseeing out of.

    Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

    Walk two blocks West to State Street and take the bus (route 29) to Navy Pier. Any other route will require you to transfer or walk a significant distance. You can also get to the John Hancock Center by taking the 3 bus by stepping across Michigan Avenue. Get off the bus at Chicago (when the bus turns to the East) and then walk 2 blocks North...you'll see it!

    Just OK

    Postives: Great location; awesome views of the lake/city; adequate accomodations. Negatives: Room was somewhat small and "bare bones" (i.e., shampoo and conditioner, and that's it); no restaurant/room service; had to call front desk 3 times before getting someone on the phone for a question; older model tv and pretty run-down extras; small room, small bathroom, and LOUD A/C unit. Overall: The entire experience was just ok. If you're just looking for someplace to stay and want to get our of your room, this hotel was fine. But if you are having a romantic weekend in Chicago, I'd look elsewhere and pony up the extra $50 or so for a nicer hotel.
