Great location and great price!

We went to see Chicago and see the Wrigley field. Great location for all the site seeing there is to do in downtown Chicago. Awesome food, transportation system (although some of the bus and train experience wasn't the greatest)easy, you can walk to a lot of the popular sites in the downtown area. Wrigley stadium is a must! Great shopping and great food!

Great Location. Super Extras!

No too much 'on-street" presence. Need to take an elevator to the Sky Lobby. After that, it was all a snap. Check in was quick. Rooms were clean and well appointed. Super nice bed linens. Open bar hospitality from 530-730p, and complimentary breakfast (I had a fantastic cooked-to-order omelette) were real treats. Close to Michigan Avenue shopping and Navy Pier attractions.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

A quick 2-block stroll puts you right in the heart of Chicago's Magnificent Mile.

In LOVE with this Embassy Suites Hotel!

The hotel was amazing! The staff was super nice and helpful. The hotel was clean and quiet. We were even next to the elevator. The breakfast was amazing. They had everything and it was soooo good. They even have some free drinks in the evening. The location was right where we wanted it to be. Very close to the navy pier and not too far from the magnificant mile. I will definately stay at this hotel again when ever we go to Chicago and will stay at Embassy wherever we go! Parking was expensive, but it is at the other hotels too.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Use the "L" (subway) to get around - buy a $5.25 pass good for one day for all trains and buses.

Great Value and Location

Arrived late for a concert with two young adults and not much experience at getting around Chicago. The staff from the valet group to the concierge were so helpful that they got us on track and to the concert with 10 minutes to spare. Great Breakfast the following morning and a great room at a reasonable price. I could not have asked for any more. Great job.
