Great experience

The hotel location is perfect-- just off Michigan Avenue. For the location and affordable price, the suites / rooms are surprisingly very large and include a large kitchen. They also allow for extended parking (more than 24 hours) for one flat fee through their valet service, which is cheaper than public garages. The hotel also includes a complimentary weekend breakfast that was satisfying. I stayed here for a conference in Chicago, but would definitely come back for vacation and think the separated spacious kitchen / living room area and bedroom make it very comfortable for families.

Great Hotel....rip off parking

Wonderful hotel.....will go back long as I don't need a car and only have to work downtown. Parking fees of $42 per night are outrageous taking away the value we felt we got with the hotel.

Good stay, only few issues

Homewood Suites Downtown Chicago was in a fantastic location. Only issue with location is that it is located on one of the streets (Grand Ave)that does not have direct access to Michigan Avenue. You have to go through Nordstroms or below street access (not exactly pretty) if you are coming right from Mich Ave. Our room was nice and spacious. They let us check in early, no begging needed. Staff was very helpful. It has a kitchenette, but our first room was missing a few things (like only had one bowl). We were OK for one night, then someone in adjacent room decided to smoke on non-smoking floor. We called desk to tell them to cut it out (like that works!). We asked to be moved for our final day and a half, and we got moved to a similar room, but much better view(and it had all its bowls!). Pool area was nice, with gorgeous view of the city. I would definitely stay here again. Sushi place located in same building is amazing, think it was called OYSY.

Last Resort

When I got there to check in, 4 hours after 'check-in time', my room still had not been cleaned. After an hour, that had been taken care of. But by that time, I was late for work......having to 'log' in to work as soon as I arrived, I was not able to have an acceptable internet connection.
