family weekend

Great place, great location, loved the valet parking right at the front door when I needed the car every time! Staff allowed a late check out and was very pleasant! Would recommend!

just what we wanted

This hotel had excellent service, included complete breakfasts and dinners. Front desk staff and doormen were very helpful with directions. Also has a very nice business center. I would certainly stay there again.

Awesome family stay

Homewood Suites is an excellent hotel with a great staff, amazing rooms and super comfy beds! Their staff was very helpful with directions and the house keeping ladies were so kind. Breakfast was also a big plus! Lots to offer and the kids enjoyed the complimentary hot apple cider!

Would return!

This is in a wonderful location with shopping, restaurants and transportation close by. The free breakfast was wonderful. I was with two teenagers so I must remark that the "free" wifi was extremely slow and spotty at times. Otherwise it was great

Nordstrom directly across the street with an indoor mall attached. Also next to it was a great sporting apparel store which offered a discount to hotel guests

Great Couple's Retreat

This is the best place to stay. The service was excellent A+. The only complaint I had was the pool water was really cold. The suite was really comfortable and if we needed anything they made sure we had it.

Wonderful weekend!

Great place to land for a wonderful time in the city! Close to restaurants, shopping, attractions, people watching, most anything visitors would want to do. Public transit is very easy to access from here. Staff were helpful and courteous. Breakfast and light dinner were so convenient. Overall, very comfortable quarters--perfect for our needs. We'll be returning!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

CTA 3-day pass--we went all over the city by el and bus. Tickets can be purchased at the nearby Jewel grocery store (also a money-saver, if you want to use your kitchen).

Convenient Location, short on service

We loved the location and our room. Only two problems: (1) The icemaker in the refrigerator did not work. We called twice asking for ice. They told us both times that someone would be right up. Never came. My wife took a cooking pan downstairs and got ice from the kitchen. (2) The dining room was overcrowded and the buffet area was too small and not well organized. There were constant outages of items on the buffet and when replenishments arrived, the hoards waiting devoured them immediately.

Fantastic location for the price

We were looking for an affordable hotel in a great location to the Magnificant Mile and Streeterville area and Homewood Suites fit the bill perfectly. This hotel is close to shopping and dining. The perfect fit for our quick weekend getaway.

Wonderful home away from home

Hotel staff are wonderful from the front desk to the valet. The suites are great for families because of the full kitchen and the spacious rooms. Breakfast buffet was hot and free with lots to choose from! The only downfall was only one elevator was working, which made for long waits to go anywhere.
