Great location - surprisingly quiet

A great location - two blocks from the Willis (Sears) Tower. Only two blocks downsouth from the Randolph Street Theater District. Good sized rooms and nice walk-in shower. Giant breakfast array on the second floor. Friendly staff and brightly decorated rooms and hallways.

Exciting weekend getaway

Hotel was very nice and clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Morning breakfast had plenty of options for being free! The fitness center was decent, better than I expected. We didn't have the best view, we were on the inside of the building, but we weren't in the room that much. Just a few blocks down from the Willis Tower and a Giordano's Pizza (highly recommend going to both!!) Location is great...a lot to see and do within walking distance or short train rides. We would definetely stay at this hotel again!

The Willis Tower Skydeck is a few blocks away and a must see! Up at the top there are some gorgeous views of the city...especially as the sun sets!

Nice hotel

The La Quinta was nice and the staff very accomodating, we got a free upgrade to a suite and the room was nice. The location is a bit far from Michigan Ave shopping and our room was a little noisy due to it being close to the elevator and the ice machine in the hall. But overall a nice place and I would go back. Free breakfast was a plus!

Great hotel!

This was our first time in Chicago and we we're so happy with the location of the hotel. We knew it was a little walk to the magnificent mile,but that was fine! We walked off all the good food we ate! the room was even better than we expected, with a great desk along the window and two comfortable desk chairs. Oh and the breakfast room was great! ALong with the breakfast! The parking is separate from the hotel,but right next door.Just pull up in front of the hotel and the front desk will explain parking if you need. Overall a great place to stay !

Nightlife tip: Long walk from hotel

The John Hancock building was awesome,the line to get into the cocktail lounge moved quickly enough,but do get there right before dark. You'll get to experience the day ,dusk unto night and the line to get in moved. It was a lot longer when we left at 9:30.

Made Lollapalooza great

We stayed here during Lollapalooza. The location is great, and provides a short walk from the festival. The staff was incredibly friendly. Literally all of them. The housekeeping and room service was great. Very affordable. Nice complementary breakfast. The beds were not comfortable and were very stiff. This was the only real complaint from the entire 4 day stay.

What a great place!!!

Our previous reservation for a different hotel got screwed up by THEIR staff on the day we were to drive from Ohio to Chicago. Lucky for us!!! The LaQuinta was located 1 block north of the Sears tower. From our room you could look right out the window at it! All the downtown sights were walking distance from the hotel. Other "same area" places wanted a HUGE price to stay there. We got great service and again great location for a fraction of the price. I would, and have already, recommend this place to firends and anyone heading to Chicago. The only negative was no onsite parking. Had to use adjacent garage, but the cost of parking is included inthe rate if you drive in, so it's not a cost that hits you at check out.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

All major sites (sears tower, Hancock tower, Water tower shops, Navy Pier, Observatory, Aquarium, even Soldier field were AT most a 25-30 minute walk. Even in July weather it wasn't that bad, with the constant breeze.

It was good -

We were staying downtown Chicago for my daughter's 14th birthday. The hotel is perfectly located to all the shopping stores; Forever 21, Macy's, WetSeal etc. We walked (2.5 miles) to the Navy Pier and back. For being one of the cheaper hotels, it was very clean and the free breakfast wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. The only thing I didn't enjoy was the double beds were super small. Two to a bed and you were cuddling!
