Perfect location to the beautiful magnificent miles.

This hotel is in the quiet location but steps away fr Michigan ave; across the street from the back entrance of Northstrom Mall. The pool has a beautiful view of Chicago. Good for family getaway!

Great Location & Price...but beware of parking fee!

Great price for the location but was unaware of the parking fee which was another $50! I know it's Chicago and downtown but really? Amenities were great and the best part is it has a pool and breakfast was included. That's always a plus. I would definitely return.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

You can have your parking fee validated for the N. Grand parking ramp (where we parked) if you spend at least $20 at Bed Bath and Beyond or Jewel Osco...but that's if you are only there for an hour. Otherwise it's $41 for overnight.

Great service and room

Came for a stay with our 15 month old daughter. The staff in the lobby were really kind and gave her a book and a toy to play with. They helped us find restaurants near by to eat at and free breakfast in the morning is always a plus. Valet service was great as well. We plan on staying again in the near future.

Acceptable accommodations.

The kitchen, bedroom and bath were fine, but nothing out of the ordinary. The worst thing is the sofa sleeper. My son accompanied me on this trip and had to sleep on a thin mattress and felt the mechanism with every move he made. He thought it was the worst thing that he ever slept on. The decor is very dated and the duvet cover in the bedroom is a horrible polyester fabric, but it is lined with cotton and the sheets and towels are a very nice quality. The breakfast buffet was pretty good. They served eggs, sausage, potatoes, yogurt, fruit, bagels, muffins, sweet rolls, oatmeal, juices and coffee. Definitely enough to get you through the morning and well into the afternoon. The location of the hotel is very good. You can walk to Rush St., Michigan Avenue, Oak Street, the river, and Millennium Park.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Take one of the architectural river cruises. It is a great way to view some wonderful examples of modern buildings and historical ones. We took the Shoreline cruise which is only an hour and our guide was informative and very funny. He probably does this during the day and works at Second City at night.

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
