Convenient location

City Suites is next door to the Belmont EL station. Very convenient when visiting Chicago without an auto. With a CTA visitor pass, you can readily get anywhere in the greater Chicago area. The room was on third floor facing Belmont, but the clatter of the elevated trains soon became just background noise. The neighborhood is cosmopolitan and lively even late at night. Lots of interesting restaurants and shops within walking distance. Even more with a short EL hop. We highly recommend the City Suites for auto-less travelers.

Perfection for a Chicago Getaway

I stayed in Chicago for 7 days with my fiancee and this little hotel was absolutely perfect for our trip. In fact, there were several times we said to one another "There's not another place in this city that I'd rather have stayed while we were here, it's absolutely perfect." For the two of us, staying in the city for a vacation, it was so wonderful because it allowed us to feel like we were a part of the city, a local, not just a tourist. The location is not only ideal for proximity to all of Chicago's most wonderful places to see, but it is also tucked away in a great part of town that is full of life and culture. The hotel itself was elegant and beautiful, but utterly unpretentious and felt very "home-y" and personal. The staff treated us so well and were so friendly and accommodating--very professional. There was a great free breakfast every morning, fresh coffee EVERY time we walked through the lobby, and cookie time every afternoon! While I would not recommend it for a short business trip or a family of more than three, I think it's perfect for couples or groups of adults traveling together in separate rooms. (there was a wedding party staying there while we were there as well and they seemed to really like it also.) The spaces are a little small, so if you are looking for a spacious suite with giant bathrooms, it may not be for you. Also, one of the best things about the location of the hotel is the fact that it is literally two doors down from the Belmont Train Station, the "L" can take you to most any place from here and quite quickly, but some people may not like the train being so close. So you should ask for a room away from the train (we NEVER had a complaint about noise or any complaint really, but some people may not be as laid back about that type of thing). It is about a 10 minute stroll from the hotel to Wrigleyville, right around the corner from the Briar Street Theatre, a 10 minute "L" ride to the beach and Millenium Park, as well as the Magnificent Mile. In terms of a place to stay and be comfortable while going out day after day to see all of the wonderful things Chicago has to offer, there is really no better place to stay, and I will absolutely stay there again when I go back to The Windy City. I suggest once you've found your hotel, use Google Maps, enter your hotel address and then the address for some of the attractions you know you'll want to visit. Get directions and click on the "train system" and it will tell you which trains to take and where to walk from there. I found it very helpful to have an idea of the "L" system's routes because its much cheaper and faster to take advantage of the really great public transportation system in Chicago, especially being so close to a major train station in the City Suites.

Take advantage of the Train System in Chicago... it is clean, safe, and much cheaper and faster than taking cabs everywhere.

Great Location

We've stayed here twice, mostly because of the location. It's right near an el station - super convenient to reach anywhere you're going quickly. There are rockin' gift shops on both sides, several excellent breakfast spots, both Indian and Thai food within a block, and a liquor and drug store just down the street. The staff is pleasant and accommodating, coffee and tea are available 24/7 and the selection of classic vocal music in the lobby is grand! Decent continental breakfast as well.

Awesome Hotel

Wonderful hotel, superb and helpful staff, ideal location convenient to El and restaurants. Very nice room and great lobby area to relax with classical music and refreshments. We stayed here with our kids about 15 years ago and enjoyed a return visit. Convenient parking for additional charge.

Very nice hotel. The blemont\sheffield area is noisy at night as there is a lot of partying in the area. So, you need to expect it.

Friendly service, cute room, comfy bed.

The front desk staff was super friendly, the room was cute and cozy, and the bed was super comfortable. My only issue was the El was right out the window, but it wasn't that bad, will probably stay again next time I am in Chicago.

WONDERFUL HOTEL

This place was so beautiful and charming. It was like spending three nights in a friend's home. I loved that they let the building show it's age (in a good way) there was radiant heat, crown-moulding, art-deco light fixtures, etc. Yet it was very clean and neat. It was is an AWESOME location. Right next door to a major CTA station. We rode the bus, subway, and el trains everywhere we wanted to go. My only dislike was that the bathroom was rather small for two people trying to get reay for an event. But if we weren't always running late, it probably wouldn't have mattered!! Also, i am a light sleeper and suffer from insommnia and you could hear the el-trains alot. But i actually slept fine and the sounds didn't bother me at all, to be honest i kind of liked it, it was oddly comforting, but i thought i would let otheres know, just in case!!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

This hotel has a Chicago Transit map that shows you all the train and subway lines and bus route, so deffinately pick one up. Also at some stations you can buy a CTA 3-day pass for $14 and get unlimited rides on all city busses, trains, subways, etc. IT was such a cheap easy way to get around!! Right across the street is AHZA Thai resturaunt it is EXCELLENT and abundant servings for a good price!!

Went to the theater while there and it was a long walk. Parking was off site around the corner and 1/2 a block away so you could get your car if need be. Close to the neighborhoods where we have friends and family if you do not need to be downtown this is a great way to go.
