    Shopping tip: Long walk from hotel

    There was no shopping in the area. You would have had to walk numerous miles if you wanted to shop the stores on N.Michigan Av.

    Is within walking distance to the museum campus, Buckinham Fountain, and several other great Chicago sights. The kids enjoyed the nigh skyline as well as the Zagat rated breakfast place just around the corner.

    Close to everything we needed

    Very nice hotel. Room was a tad on the small side, but very clean. The pool was outside and not very warm (in the shade a lot), would have preferred an indoor pool. Very close to the attractions that we came to see, Shedd Aquarium, Field Museum, and Navy Pier, all were well within walking distance. Very good stay, would stay here again.

    Right where I need to be

    The Best Western Grant Park is just about perfect for a family getaway in Chicago. Located on Michigan Avenue and just a short walk from the Planetarium, Shedd Aquarium, and the Field Museum. Plus, the restaurant located in the hotel was just what I needed for getting something to eat quick (the Salmon was great) with a young child who was very hungry and did not want to leave the building.

    You only have to cross Michigan Avenue and you are in Grant Park and easy access to the Museum Campus - an easy walk with young children or even if you have to take a stroller.

    Worked well for us

    We came to Chicago for a convention. Easy walking to McCormick Center, the waterfront, Navy Pier and Downtown (20-25 minutes). Price was good, the amenities clean and comfortable. This is now our Chicago destination of choice.

    Not bad for the price and location.

    The location at this hotel was ideal for downtown Chicago and the price wasn't bad either. We were central to everything in the city, my only complaint was that there was a bit of black mold in the shower ceiling, nothing substantial but it should definitely be looked at. The staff was friendly and made a solid effort to accommodate us.

    Great overnight getaway

    Though I only had a brief stay at the hotel, it provided the perfect combination of location and necessities to ensure a fantastic evening in Chicago! I was able to enjoy the holiday splendor of visiting Macy's and the Christkindlmarket with my daughter. The beds were super comfortable and the rooms were updated. I also used the fitness center, so that was an added bonus.

    Great stay and staff!

    Good location, used bus across street and walked to two great restaurants, suggested by hotel employees: Chicago Firehouse - great steaks in a real firehouse; Zapatista - mexican cousine, busy place and good food. Breakfast places nearby, along with food store, donut and coffee shops,etc. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely reserve there again!
