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.

    What a location!

    The location was absolutely perfect. From the moment we arrived, I was impressed by the service and professionalism at the Best Western. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was standard, but clean and quiet and I felt safe and comfortable. I would stay here again.

    great value for location

    This hotel is a little bit away from the busy area but it is still just a short walk to the l stations, loop and the free trolley rides. Excellent value. We stayed here a couple of years ago and it has even improved since then.

    Friendly staff

    All staff were very frienldy and helpful. We were met with a smile and short greeting when ever we came and went from the hotel sight seeing. The restaurant staff were also friendly and knew the area well when we had questions. Nice view of the Grant Park and the lake.

    Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

    You are several blocks from the CTA train-subway.It is very resonable and not difficult to find your way around. The CTA staff are also friendly and helpful.We felt very safe during the day traveling all over the city by train, bus,or trolley.

    Great Staff

    Our stay in Chicago was made much more enjoyable by the Grant Park Best Western. The individuals we had the opportunity to interact with were very helpful and extremely professional. They were knowledgeable and always willing to assist each time we asked. The room was clean and well furnished. We did not have the opportunity to dine in the restaurant, but did look at the menu and there was a wide selection and the prices were very reasonable. Upon a return trip to Chicago we would certainly consider staying at the Best Western at Grant Park!

    Wonderful Location

    The Best Western, Grant Park was the perfect location to visit the Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium and Soldiers Field. These are all within walking distance. The train or bus stop is only one to two blocks away and you can get most anywhere from this stop. The view from the ninth floor was great. We could see the skyline and the park. The hotel staff told us about day passes for the train and bus for only $5.00 which can be used for 24 hours. We took great advantage of this pass. Also, there is a grocery shop only one block away for items. We ate in the resturant attached to the hotel for a morning buffet which was great and also for a dinner. The resturant also has bottles of wine that they will open for your room.

    Ask the attendant at the bus/train stop for a map. This will help plan your transfers. They all were really patient in explaining how to get to locations. Don't be afraid to ask either hotel staff or train staff.

    Nice hotel but dinged on movies

    This nice hotel is in a terrific location, walking distance to the planetarium, aquarium, etc. Got a good rate, at least for downtown Chicago. The hotel is right on Michigan avenue and there are a number of nice eateries in walking distance including a nice sushi restaurant. The only real negative was, as we were checking out, we got dinged for two pay per view movies--which I did not watch. After arguing with the clerk for a while, he agreed to split the cost of the two movies so I was charged another eleven bucks. Otherwise, though, we had a good experience there.

    Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

    The museum campus that includes the Shedd Aquarium, Field Museum and Adler Planetarium is about a mile walk from the hotel. Since parking by the museums is murderously expensive, walking is a great option.

    Best Western Grant Park Review

    My only complaint is short staffing at reception desk, causing above average wait time. Otherwise, hotel and staff were very accommodating of all needs, including advice on local restaurants. Fitness room and outdoor pool are excellent for this size facility. Location is perfect for those who want to visit any of the city's great museums. Grant Park is across the street.
