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.

Great Value, friendly staff

Very pleased with our stay here. This hotel is a great value for the money. Though located a bit away from the heart of downtown Chicago we found it is conveniently located to the train station so that downtown locations are easily accessible. It is also located very close to some of the city's best museums and Millennium Park. If you're a music fan you'll be just three blocks from Buddy Guy's Legends, one of the country's best Blues nightclubs. Though the rooms are a bit small they are very clean and comfortable. Food is available onsite at Mei's Kitchen. Had breakfast & dinner there and the food was good and reasonably priced. Hours are limited and they don't serve lunch but many options for dining are available within easy walking distance. Can't say enough good things about the staff. Everyone was courteous and very helpful. Will stay there again on my next visit to Chicago.

Great location

Short pleasant walk to the museum complex which is what we were looking for. .The hotel could use some updating but the price was what attracted us.. The staff was very helpful and pleasant.

Excellent Location!

This hotel is the closest hotel to Soldier Field so if you are going to a game or event there, this is where you want to stay! It's also a short walking distance to access the walking/running/biking paths at Lakefront Trail. The hotel has a restaurant on site but it was only open for breakfast when we were there. The hotel is outdated but clean. The staff were friendly & helpful. We were disappointed that the outdoor pool was not open. It appeared to be closed for an extended period of time, not just closed for the season.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Walk across Michigan Ave (directly across from the hotel) to access the Riverfront Trail if you are interested in spectacular views. Not as many restaurants in this area but if you are a sports fan, make the short walk to Scouts, this is a pre game hang out for Bears Games. We were rooting for the opposing team but were welcomed by the staff & fans.

Best Western Grant Park Chicago IL

All staff members were friendly, efficient and courteous. Hotel needs a good cleaning and many updates. Hotel location is too far from the Loop and with nothing around it after business close. Room had 2 double beds, good for family. Price too high for what we got.

great location, average hotel

The best thing about this hotel is that it's walking distance to the Art Institute and the museum campus. The room was reasonably clean but rather worn, and the bed was sagging. The extra $38/night for parking is not out of line for downtown Chicago, but would be more palatable if it didn't require a 15+ minute wait every time you request your car.

This hotel was fine if its a quick stay over in downtown Chicago. No amenities or anything special, but good value for staying close to shopping venues.
