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.

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.

    Clean older hotel. Friendly staff

    The hotel is a clean older building. The staff is very helpful. A quick walk across Grant Park gets you to the Field Museum,Shedd Aquarium,Adler Planetarium, and Soldier Field.There is a nice restaurant in the 1st floor. Next door is a great place to have breakfast or lunch. It is called Yolk. Around the corner, you can catch the loop out to Midway airport.

    Great Location

    We enjoyed the location next to the lovely parks and musuem campus. It was an easy and beautiful walk to the Field Musuem and Shedd Aquarium. The flowers in and around Grant Park were beautiful. It was near the Red Line to the Cubs game, and affordable taxi ride to shopping. I would certainly stay here again.

    Great Price for a Perfect location

    The Hotel was much better than I had expected. I thought for the rate I got the room it was going to be dirty and bad location. The only things about the room that disapointed me were: the small bathroom, the dirty windows, the Ice machine was out of order on our floor, and the bed was a little uncomfortable. The location of the hotel was perfect for what we were in chicago to do. We were literally 5 minutes walking distance from Museum campus. Also the hotel provided vallet parking for the same rates as parking at a parking garage further away. I plan to travel to chicago again this summer and I most likely will be staying at this hotel! The price the location! It was perfect for two broke college kids! lol. I would recommend this hotel to almost anyone but for a family I would recommend maybe getting two rooms being so small.

    Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

    depending on where you want to shop the road right behind the hotel has some great stores on it. Also the hotel is approximently 30 minute walk from the magnificent mile.

    It's close to the museums, farther than other hotels from the river and bulk of downtown.

    1 week stay

    My Hotel experience was a good one. The bus stops were either right around the corner or one block away and within 5-10mins you would be in the shopping district of Chicago. There were good places to eat right around the corner. And it was nice to jump into the pool. for a 2-3 star hotel is was a very good place to stay at. the pool wasnt all that clean though. (just leaves on the pool and stuff from the wind)

    Weekend Concert

    First, I requested two double beds and received one king bed. We were unable to change rooms from one night because the hotel was booked solid. However, our experience with Claudia was exceptional. She was able to move our room for the next time and gave us free valet on our two cars for one night. As well as a room discount for the smell and lack of air conditioning in the first room.
