Was at another hotel in Chicago that we hated and scrambled to find another place and got into this place. What a lifesaver. This place was great. I fully recommend to anyone.

Chicago Weekend

The staff was courteous, friendly and helpful. Were able to point us to breakfast spots and provide the directions we needed. The room was very clean. Extra towels and attention to the safe was provided very promptly. Great location - easy to get to all of our weekend destinations either Metra, bus or walking. Would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend.

Very good

Everything was very good. Great location, good staff, clean environment. The location allowed us to venture through most of the city on foot and the balcony offered a great view.

Girl's Getaway

Overall our experience was pretty good except for housekeeping knocking on the door at 9 and 10 am to clean our room. Checkout wasn't until noon, so we didn't feel they should have bothered us. I also didn't think the response from the person at the front desk was appropriate when I complained about it.

Would not stay there again ...

Overall, it was an everage experience. Staff wasn't friendly (even rude) ~ Had to wait hours to check in ... Room overall looked okay but bathroom doors are ridiculous. I wouldn't stay at Crown Plaza Hotel again and would not recomend for any of my friends and family
