The Best Western Grant Park Hotel offers visitors a great downtown location to take in all of Chicago's main attractions.

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.

    Basic Hotel

    This hotel is very basic, no extras, but for the money it was a good deal and in a good location. I would stay there again and also recommend it. We had a problem with the television and they promptly took care of it. I try to rate a hotel on how quick they respond to issues and how clean it is. This met both of those issues in a fair amount of time.

    A Room with a View

    Our adjoining rooms were almost perfect for us. We had a wonderful view of the lake, park and museums. The museums we visited were only a 15 minute walk from the hotel. The train station was also only a few blocks away. The beds were very comfortable. We were glad to have a refrigerator and microwave in the room. We would have preferred to have two beds in each room. The only unwanted noises we heard were doors closing. They were unusually loud.

    Grant Park is just across the street. The museum campus is an easy 15 minute walk from the hotel. There is a small restaurant attached to the hotel. There is a train station just a few blocks away.
