Coming Soon! This hotel has not yet opened, but is accepting reservations for arrival after January 15, 2015. The Chicago La Quinta Lake Shore is located just minutes from downtown Chicago and overlooks Lake Michigan and the skyline of the city. We are just several blocks away from exciting shops and restaurants in the new and trendy area on 53rd street in Hyde Park. We are also just blocks away from several beaches, the Museum of Science and Industry and the University of Chicago. McCormick Place convention center is just a short ride away from our doorstep. Our hotel offers our guests complimentary Wi-Fi, and outdoor swimming pool, and a full service restaurant. Our guest rooms also have mini fridges and microwaves, AM/FM clock radios, coffee makers, iron and ironing boards, and free cable television. The fitness center can also assist our guests in maintaining their physical routine away from home without missing a beat. Our complimentary business center is available for all our guests needs such as printing boarding passes, last minute presentations etc. Our seasonal outdoor pool overlooking Lake Michigan is an added feature that most hotels in Chicago do not offer.

Near downtown loop accommodations

Easy location. Easy parking. Restaurant next door ok. It served our needs -- allowing us to get out of an expensive downtown hotel but not leave the city until the next day. Free wi-fi and parking are a plus. However it is sort of seedy and the rooms are tired.

While this is a really average facility, it's location and staff are great. The daily shuttle runs to Chicago University Area and the Downtown was so helpful for people new to Chicago who want to sight see. The Staff are so helpful and friendly, a great stay in an average facility!

weekend getaway

My wife and me when to Chicago on a weekend getaway. I booked the ramada because I have stayed at them all over the country and they've always been pretty clean and friendly. This ramada was not clean at all and the rooms smelled terrible. The bed was like sleeping on a rock. My wife and I never felt safe and the we ended up checking out of the hotel one day early. We loved the city it was an amazing trip except for the hotel. Only plus I can say about the ramada was that the driver that ran the shuttle in to the city was supper nice and supper helpful.

will stay somewhere else next time

Room was clean bed was comfortable. Room a little small. Noise of opening and closing doors could be heard all night. Pool should have been cleaner. Had sand on the bottom and lots of leaves floating around. Almost every chair was broken or missing to many straps to sit on it safely Did not like sign in bath telling you to hang up your towels and use them again instead of getting clean ones everyday. I did stay 3 days. Some of the staff were nice some were not. Service at the on site cafe was terrible. Food was so so.
