Great Location, Awful Location

The hotel itself is great. Friendly, helpful staff, clean and surprisingly spacious room (bedroom separated from a living room area by the bathroom, feels like a small flat rather than a room). Interestingly, a very small 3-person elevator, which is kinda neat but inconvenient for families with much luggage. Now to the title of this review... The hotel is in great location; around the corner from The Vic theater, and in the middle of a really interesting set of restaurants, cafes, alternative joints, and other theaters. At first, I thought it was a great location - easily accessible to everything I wanted on the trip, especially the train as it is right next door. And therein lies the problem. If you stay here, request a room on the East side of the hotel. The West side faces the train's boarding platform. About 100 feet of empty air separated my window from the platform, which meant two things: First, if I opened a window (or the vent in the shower to let in air), I was staring a people, who usually were staring right back at me. Odd (especially in the shower. I waved to them, then shut the vent). The real issue comes at night. Every few minutes, as the train comes and goes, was the loud DING DONG followed by the announcer's voice over the speaker. I probably got about 4 hours of actual sleep, despite being in bed for 7 hours. Stay on the East side of the hotel, unless you're a heavy sleeper. Otherwise, I found this hotel completely satisfactory. They even provide access to a parking garage at a reasonable rate, which is just around the corner - about a 1 minute walk. Ideal, in that part of the neighborhood! A parting word: Be advised that this building, like most of the buildings in this neighborhood, is very old. The floor can feel uneven, given that under the carpeting is some very old hardwood. It creaks like the dickens walking down the hall. Not a problem, just something to be aware of.

Just East of the hotel is a Gyro joint that is open until about 2 AM. Great for an after-show snack. Also within walking distance is the B.Y.O.B. sushi place, "Rollapolooza". Fantastic staff and atmosphere, and wonderful food.

Chicago style

I loved that this hotel gave me a true sense of Chicago. It was a great blend of history with modern amenities. Right off the "el" for easy transportation.

Clean and Comfortable

Beautiful hotel, pleasant staff, very clean room, ultra comfortable bed and linens. We had a little bit of a security incident one night when returned to the hotel right after a drunken guest had entered. He had just missed knocking my daughter over with his cab door in the street. We tried to avoid him at the entrance as he fumbled to get his key to work, only to find him a few minutes later trying to get his key card to work on the door to our room! We went to the desk and asked for help from the desk clerk, he went upstairs and could not find the inebriated gentleman. It would have been nice if he could have walked us back up to the room to make sure the gent had not come back. Only problem we had during 5 day stay in Chicago. We loved this hotel, it has a great location for us, my daughter within a couple blocks.

There is a Breakfast/Brunch place called "Orange" a couple blocks over, well worth the walk, they have very creative and delicious breakfast offerings.

small room, great location and staff

Great location for Clark & Halsted shopping, restaurants, bars. Wrigley baseball just north on Clark. > Next door to Red Line's Belmont Station, yet was not disturbed by "L" noise. Continuous, talented, street musician (drum set)from 3pm check-in drove us to request room change from Belmont-view. Offered two rooms away from the street: still no problem w. "L" > Very good breakfast possibilities: wide selection of cereals and baked goods.

Quite good to discover the city

The hotel was very clean and well located, just next to the metro station. The room was clean although a little bit small. The only problem was that, as it is very near the metro station (and the metro runs all night) sometimes the noise was annoying. But overall it was good value for money.

Great Location

The hotel was in a great location for my purposes, a mix of business and pleasure. The L station is right next door, making it convenient to get to most anywhere in the city. There are several restaurants within walking distance. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was kept clean and was comfortable. There were a few minor maintenance issues they should address but nothing that would keep me from returning. Next time I am in Chicago, this is where I will stay. the combination of price and location is just too good of a deal.

Cubs game

Trip was a surprise, dream come true for my wife's 50th birthday. 1st Cubs game at Wrigley Field was pinnacle. City Suites is great hotel, fewer rooms, more intimate, unlike large chains. Within walking distance to Wrigley Field, 7-8 blocks. Good restaurants/pubs within 1 block. EL is very close to hotel, did not hear it as long as air conditioning unit was on. Clean, spacious rooms, nice bath, good service.

Cubs game getaway

The hotel stay was great....comfy bed, nice shower, free wifi, friendly Staff! Amazing location if you are in town for a Cubs game; we walked to the stadium. The room was very small, the slow elevator only fit 3 at a time and the floors creeked but what can you expect from what seemed to be an old apartment building. It is right by the train but there wasn't much noise. I would definitely stay again if they lowered the price.

OK

Location was very handy, eclectic neighborhood. The people at the front desk and every worker were friendly, smiling and gracious. Take great care when you book however, as the room was nice but so small that you could barely walk around the bed, and could not open the bathroom door fully. Had I known that a suite was only $20.00 more, that would have been my choice.
