Close to many downtown Chicago sites and restaurants

Would recommend Tue, Oct 6, 2015
This Hotel is within walking distance to Greek town, restaurants, and Old St. Pat's church. The food is quite good, and the bar area is comfy and relaxing. The staff were very helpful, and although costly, the valet service is great. The king size room was very acceptable. The bed was adequate, but options in pillows is a big suggestion area - very high and too fluffy. Overall experience is good to very good! Been there before, and will book again!

Very Solid Hotel

Would recommend Mon, Aug 18, 2014
The Plaza was a exactly what I was looking for. I needed a clean, comfortable place that was centrally located in Chicago. it was very easy to get to because it was off the highway, had plenty of parking, and was walking distance to a lot of west loop night life. The hotel itself very good. Knowledgeable and kind staff and the room was very clean.

Great location, clean room

Would recommend Tue, Jul 1, 2014
Rooms are very comfortable at this hotel, and each one has an open air balcony. Front desk staff was friendly and efficient. Parking (valet) cost is a little high, at $39/night, especially since the lot is so small, and your car is never parked more than 300 feet from the lobby entrance. Great grocery store across the street from hotel, with an awesome salad bar. There's also a reasonably priced breakfast spot across the street.

Dining

Great salad bar at grocery store across the street.

Great Location-Loved the balcony

Would recommend Mon, Jun 9, 2014
Great location for the training I had to attend that week. The room was on the small size but was nice and comfortable, I enjoyed having a balcony, that was something you don't get too often in a standard room. I had a great steak at the hotel bar too, was pleasantly surprised! I'll definitely stay here again.

Shopping hint

Tax is at a prime rate in this area, if you are purchasing something that can be bought a little ways out of downtown and it's a bit expensive or a bunch of groceries, save some money and try to go out of downtown. It could end up saving you a decent amount of cash if you have the time.

Worked well for me

Would recommend Fri, Jun 6, 2014
I had business in this area, so the location was perfect for me. The hotel is really east to get to - just exit off of I 90 and drive right in. The staff was excellent, the room was nice, and there were lots of pillows to choose from. I didn't eat here so have no insight about that. I walked the neighborhood a bit and felt safe. There are plenty of places to eat and drink w/in walking distance. I would stay here again. It is pet friendly (30 lbs. or less) but I didn't see any grass, so keep that in mind if you travel w/ a dog.

Great value for location

Would recommend Mon, May 5, 2014
This hotel is a few blocks west of downtown Chicago. When I booked my reservation it was the cheapest hotel within 1.5 mi of downtown - it is actually .7 mi from the Loop, right on the edge of Greek Town. We got there earlier than check-in time and there were no problems getting them to hold our bags while I explored the city. Even though there was a fencing tournament going on and there were athletes from all over the world, we were not treated any differently. Complimentary internet was included in all part of the hotel including our room. In my experience, hotels have started shifting towards charging for internet in the room while still providing it for free in the common areas, so being able to use their wifi from our room was a definite plus. I'd say the only issue I found with the hotel is that it was designed so that none of their balconies have a nice view of the city. The side of the hotel that would have the nicest view has no balconies at all.

Money saver

There are two cards that give you access to attractions. CityPass only gives you access to 5. Go Card give you access to over 25. It is slightly more expensive but it is definitely worth it if you are willing to just go, go, go from 10 am to 6 pm. Also, the Go Card includes a hop on/hop off tour of the city, which is very handy when going from one attraction to the next.
