Listen to the EL All Night Long

This hotel was very expensive for the value returned. The EL was just about 100 feet outside our window. The suite was very small - not really larger than a standard room. Parking was over a block away and is an extra charge of over $20/day. I was told not to lose the parking card (which did not work) or I would be charged $250! It was a big hassle to checkin and checkout on Belmont Ave which is a very busy street. The room was more like being on a submarine than a hotel room.

Good value for tourists.

The hotel is located in a lively, somewhat funky, but safe, neighborhood, with lots of nearby shopping and eating options. The subway is located just a few feet away, and is only a twenty minute ride downtown. But it is much more fun and more interesting to stay here than in the loop or near north. The subway, however, creates the only drawback. Rooms facing the subway - which is elevated at this point are rather noisy, but is helped somewhat if you run the window air conditioner as a fan. This might not be a problem if you get a room facing east - rooms facing north look out on a rather busy street. Otherwise, the room was spotless, homey and very spacious, though not with the last word in carpeting and furnishing. Service was fine. There is a decent continental breakfast, but there are so many good eating options right outside the door! It would be nice if the hotel had some internet capability for those who do not bring a PC or laptop with them.

One coffee shop across the street, another down the block with good breakfast specials. All sorts of ethnic restaurants within a block or two and many bars, catering to a young, hip, crowd within a few blocks.

convenient to the El and Wrigley

The rooms are comfortable, a bit on the small side. Staff was ver friendly and helpful. Room and hotel was clean. Our room faced the El stop, which we could hear, but wasn't overly loud. City Suites was close to several restaurants and Wrigley Field. A nice walk to Lake Michigan as well...

Very Affordable Right in Wrigleyville

If you're looking for a place to stay on a budget anywhere near Wrigleyville and the north-side of the city this place is great. Nothing fancy but for a quick and cheap weekend getaway it is great. Amenities are not abound beyond a continental breakfast (endless supply of coffee day and night) but if you don't need a pool or workout facility its no big deal. There are plenty of bar/food options in the area and in immediate walking distance. Dunkin Donuts too. Great deal and great location. Friendly staff, comfy rooms (small TV's but not a deal breaker), close the L and loads of bars and restaurants. We stayed on the L Side of the hotel last time and the trains didn't bother us in the least in terms of noise.

Great area near boystown

City Suites is a little dated but overall a good property. I was a little worried because it is next door to the train station but my room was all the way in the back of the hotel and I never heard the trains at all! The location of this hotel is first rate and the staff is very good!

Close to El Stop

We chose this hotel for our three day stay because of its Lincoln Park location and the closeness of an El stop. The hotel staff was genuinely friendly and helpful in accomadating our needs. (We needed to switch rooms to a suite for our last day, and had to be gone during check-out times, so they moved our luggage. They also earnestly tried to get us the suite for our entire stay. Although they were unable to do so, we certainly appreciated their effort to at least try. Our queen room was very small, but the queen suite was more spacious. The neighborhood might be a bit edgy for some, (punk/goth clothing stores, tatoo parlors, etc.)but the people watching was great! The Briar Street Theater (Blue Man Group) is just down the street, as well as some big box retail stores. Wrigley Field and its associated bars and nightlife scene are a short walk away.

Get off the Belmont stop, turn the corner, and you are there. Ann Sather on the same block has world class breakfasts and lunches.

Home stand ready

My room was a comfortable suite which would have worked with kids too. A short walk from Wrigley Field in a lively neighborhood. Off site parking was available for a daily fee but the CTA from either airport is a great oprion. Bus transfers are a breeze unless loaded with luggage.

Good Value

This hotel was inexpensive for Chicago, and I'm sure the reason is that it is LOUD. Bring earplugs. Our room was directly outside the el and overlooked construction. It was fairly clean, but when I got there, they were trying to clean out smoke from a previous occupant (told I was getting a non-smoking room). I wasn't happy. Also it's eco-friendly so you have to ask for extra towels or to have new towels or your linens changed. While I'm all for the environment and saving money, that's super inconvenient on a family vacation. Other than that, the continental breakfast was nice, the bathrooms were clean, and it was only a short train ride or bus ride to anywhere. People were nice and helpful. I'd stay again.

Make sure you get a multi-day pass to use public transportation and take some time to figure out the el and bus.

Great Location

This is a great hotel to be at if you are heading to a Cubs game. The location is great. You are only a few blocks away from Wrigley. The suite rooms are pretty nice and it is always nice having a pullout sofa room if you can get one of those.
