    Awesome stay in perfect location

    Perfect location, friendly staff, near everything. They will help you get a taxi or use public transportation and will keep your bags for early check-in. Everything went smoothly. I would stay here again. Front desk person, [...]- very friendly!

    Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

    All museums within walking distance. You are right on Grant Park. You can walk to Shedd, place to view lake Michigan, Field Museum, Art Institute, Restaurants, Shopping, Millenium Park and don;t miss the Yolk restaurant next door.

    Some Things to Consider

    Overall the Best Western Grant Park in Chicago was quite comfortable and clean. The staff of the hotel was courteous and as helpful as they were allowed. Some things the staff may want to consider; -one of the lights in the room did not work. -There is a large gap under the door where light from the hallway comes in quite brightly all night long. -There were several problems with the television *It was difficult to turn on with the remote. *After it's been on for about 20 minutes the sounds volume begins to rise on it own. *The initial screen for viewing hotel services and movies available was frozen with a computer error message every day that I was there. -In the bathroom there is a noisy fan that cannot be turned off and the over-the-mirror light, which is quite difficult to turn on. I asked a maid for assistance on this light and even she had a hard time with it. -The restaurant connected to the hotel is far too expensive for the type and quality of food it serves.

    There is a beautiful park directly across the street from the hotel. Across the park is a museum and an aquarium.

    Good value

    Well located near museums, this hotel is very convenient and a good value for the money. It looks a little tired, but it's very clean, and the restaurant wasn't bad -- nice croissants for breakfast, and a terrific pizza for supper. Sunday brunch was lacking, though.

    The Art Institute isn't far, and it's right on a bus route that goes straight to museums and shopping if you don;t want to walk.

    Good value for the money

    The rooms in the Best Western Grant Park were very nice. When we arrived at the hotel late in the evening, I thought that we were at the wrong hotel. The outside was not attractive, and neither was the lobby. When we got up to the 2nd floor, we could tell that the hotel had been re-furbished, and when we got into the room, we were pleasantly surprised. The room had been nicely redecorated. It was beautiful, and the bed and bedding was very comfortable. It was close to several nice restaurants, so that was nice too. All in all, it was a pleasant experience.

    We ate once at the restaurant in the hotel and it was very good. There is a Jimmy John's Sandwich shop closeby, which we enjoyed. Also a Ice Cream shop about 2 blocks from the hotel. We were involved in a convention at McCormick Place and that was only about a mile away.

    The hotel is just a walking distance to the Shedd Aquarium and Field Museum. And you walk through a park - not regular city blocks!

    Great Location

    We had an emergency and had to travel quick and economical. This is not a glamorous hotel. It is however a very nice hotel with a friendly staff at a fair price. The location is great and we would stay again. Everything was clean. Only negative was room level ice machines broken. I had to go to in building restaurant for ice.
