Great get away

I chose this hotel last minute on New Years Day. It was very reasonable in price. Very relaxing. Just what I needed. The only thing wrong was the halls smelled like smoke.

Amazing weekend!

This hotel was amazing!! The room was much bigger than usual, with a kitchen and separate bedroom and living room. The staff were were very friendly and accommodating. It was a great deal for the price I paid. I wouldn't want to stay at any other hotel in the future. I didn't want to leave!

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!

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.

Homewood Suites Review

The hotel, for the price and location, was definitely a good choice. We were only in for a night to catch up and grab some dinner. The rooms are nicely sized as suites, and clean. It is really close to Michigan Ave, so a lot of the stores are in walking distance. We walked to Gino's East to enjoy the scenery. The women at the front desk were very helpful and friendly.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Parking is pretty expensive everywhere down there, so I parked at the garage right in front of the hotel, by the Hilton I believe, for $38/ night. I think that's the cheapest in the area, valet ran from $42 and up.
