We didn't spend much time in the room, but it was clean and quiet and the hotel overall was very presentable. We didn't use the gym or anything else the hotel had to offer, but everything looked great, so I'm sure everything it had to offer is
worth the price. The area of town shuts down early, as it is the business part of town, but we didn't have to walk far to enjoy the art/theatre part of town. We would definitely stay there again.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
We didn't dine in the area. There are many attractions that are both a short and long walk. The buildings surrounding this hotel alone are a sight to see -- the Sears tower is in plain view. Anytime we took a wrong turn, we looked for the Sears tower to get us back on track. What a beautiful city.
The hotel was close to the cta blue line, so getting there from O'Hare and gettign around town was easy. It is a bit far to McCormick place, but the hotel is close to theaters and restaurants (especially Greek Town.)
Stayed at the Central Loop for 3 nites while attending Lollapalooza in Grant Park. The location couldn't have been better! Only a 4 block walk to the park, and 5 blocks from the Sears Tower! The only complaint i had was our door was right next to
the people staying in the room beside us, and the door kept opening and slamming, that got very annoying. But other than that, I would definately stay here again!
I was in town visiting the University of Chicago and decided to stay at the Central Loop Hotel. The price was right, location was good but it's a business district (weekends are quiet as all the corporations are closed) so you'll need to take a
cab to wherever there's entertainment. I would certainly stay there again if I'm in Chicago.
Central loop was a great place to stay! right down town, near the trains but not so near that you could hear them. Rooms were very clean, staff was nice, bottled water station was a nice touch. Avoid having leftovers- there are no microwaves or
fridges, and the food is amazing everywhere! Was able to walk to almost everything, otherwise hopped in cab, train or bus. Had a great time.
