Marathon weekend

Old and run down but very clean. Heard all the noise from the street below as well as the El train. TV had no volume control.

great location, good value

Would recommend Sat, Oct 10, 2015
Congress Plaza was in a great location and most attractions of interest were within walking distance. Good value. Clean room, but fairly plain and sparse. Had a great view of the city from the 14th floor. Would stay here again. Nice for business travel since I don't spend much time in the room but I would probably prefer something a little bigger and a little more comfortable for vacation or leisure stay. The hotel has an old school Chicago feel with a very ornate lobby.

hotel very old and room old with little amenities

Would not recommend Sat, Oct 10, 2015
No this hotel did not meet my expectations. It was not updated except in lobby area. Rooms were dull and not up to par. Beds not comfortable. The only thing I enjoyed was the location

Older Hotel with a great location across from the park. Plenty of restaurants and stores located in this area. Rooms are big and clean. Service is very pleasant. Have stayed here twice now and will again.

Classic.

Would recommend Wed, Oct 7, 2015
Place is nothing fancy, but is cheap and located in a great spot. Staff was nice, place was clean enough, room was fine. Not amazing or new, but I visited a room at the Trump hotel which had to be several times more expensive and you could see the tackiness and cut corners er'rywhur. Only thing I disliked about the Congress was the horrible replacement lights throughout the hallways and stuff.

Great value in excellent location

Would recommend Tue, Oct 6, 2015
It would be difficult to beat the price for this prime location. The hotel is historic and has a lot of character to put it in the most generous terms -- it's hard to say when the rooms were last renovated. It was clean and comfortable enough, though.

This Hotel is tired

Would not recommend Tue, Oct 6, 2015
The hotel is in a decent location, it is about 1 mile from downtown. The Hotel was probably once fabulous, but it's days of fabulousness are long gone. The building and its decor could best be decribed as tired and dated. The hallway lighting is a mix of the wrong color LED lighting, making an already tired looking hotel look stark and dirty. In my humble opinion the hotel needs major investment to be brought back to its former glory. I actually went through parts of the hotel that looked to be abandoned with the results of leaking roof/plumbing just left there to turn into some kind of science project! it looks like one handyman is taking care of this giant hotel, when in fact it needs to be partially gutted and rebuilt . What a pity...this could be a great hotel, right now it is far from it .

Family Trip

Would not recommend Tue, Oct 6, 2015
I made reservations and requested a smoking room. When I checked in, I told the girl that I requested a smoking room and she never responded. She just said that we're in 6610 and how to get there. We went to the room to put our things away and get ready to go to Wrigley Field. I noticed there were no ashtrays in the room, but left to go to the game. When we returned, I called the front desk to request a couple of ashtrays, 20 mins later someone knocked on the door and hands me one. The staff wasn't very friendly at all, I just considered it to be big city life.

Great Family Trip to Chicago

Would recommend Wed, Sep 30, 2015
It has been great stay at Congress Plaza Hotel during visit to Chicago. This hotel is well located in such a perfect place on Michigan Avenue, near to Grant Park, Millennium Park and The Art institute of Chicago. This is worth of money spent.
