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.

    just the basics

    Great value if you aren't keen on amenities. Nothing in the fitness center works. WiFi was spotty and did not support streaming. Front desk insisted that it did...but it didn't. Very good location downtown. Parking is on a valet basis and will cost you around $35/day. Keep that in mind when calculating your budget.

    Great location, little pricey...

    The price was much lower than other hotels in the area. The location is excellent if you want to be within walking distance of the Shedd Aquarium, the Field Museum, etc. The downside to this hotel was that the food was so-so. The restaurant was closed for renovations, so the only food option in the hotel for lunch/dinner was the coffee stand. Foodwise, the coffee stand only offered pastries and sandwiches. In addition, the room was full of broken items! The sink drain pull came off in my hand when I tried to run water into the bathroom sink. When I tried to hang up my bath towel, the rack fell off the wall. There was only one working lamp in the room. It was an adventure to see what would happen to me next! On the upside, the staff was very friendly and helpful. The location, the price, and the staff made up for the small inconveniences.

    Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

    Make time to visit the Field Museum, home of Sue the Tyrannosaurus Rex! I left 2.5 hours for the museum and it was not enough. If you are a museum fan, leave yourself at least 4 hours to see the whole thing.

    Great location for the price

    The location is really great for the price. Everything is ver y expensive in that área! We went jogging in a beautiful área, shopping and museums are ver y close. The only thing we didn' t like ver y much is that the hotel is old and looks old.

    Good location for the price.

    It was clean and friendly. It had an iron & blow dryer. We spent little time in the hotel but it was a great price for the location close to the Museum's, Lakeview, Grant Park, & Aquarium. Only a $5 cab ride from Navy Pier and the train stopped right off at Roosevelt (red line) just a block away. Along with close to bus stops too.

    Exactly what I expected

    We visited the Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium, Planetarium and saw Peter Pan. It was noisy at night until a certain time then it quieted down.

    Money-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

    Buy a 3-5 or 7 day CTA pass; you can use the train or bus system to get around relatively easy. Call the CTA system and ask for the shortest routes prior to boarding so you know exactly where you're going.
