Great weekend getaway!

For the money, we got way more than I was expecting. The room was modern, clean and spacious. The doorman & staff at the desk and dining were friendly and efficient. The FREE breakfast was good, and the indoor pool and hot tub were well maintained and warm. My only complaint is the parking situation. The lot behind the hotel is really expensive, so we got one across the street ahead of time that turned out to be on lower wacker & we had to go miles out of our way to get to the entrance. So just suck it up and pay the fortune to be near the hotel. Or better yet take the train since it's only a 3 minute walk away from Olgivie and Union Station. Will definitely stay again!

Zoo Lights!

We checked in around 3:00 pm and everything was ready. It was just a short walk to the Christmas Market in Daley Square. After that, the staff was very helpful to get us a cab to the Lincoln Park Zoo. The kids loved the Noodles and Company in the lobby and the Starbucks across the street. They had a good included breakfast. The pool was small but we were the only ones there and they also had a hot tub. I couldn't believe how close it was to the Sears Tower, Metra Station and Union Station. It was a good value and fantastic location.

We got parking in the lot the is across the street, but it was lower wacker and we drove around forever to figure out how to get there. So it's worth the extra $$ to park behind the hotel. Regular price is $45 per night, so get it ahead of time on a discounted app like spothero.

Great Value! Great Breakfast! (small pool)

We were greeted kindly by the front desk clerks, who were fairly efficient though a bit harried. They graciously accommodated our request to change from a smokey 'non-smoking' room to an upgraded one. Room and bed were comfortable, with a futon couch that was moderately comfortable for sleeping. Minor criticism - indoor pool was VERY small. OK for small children, but no lap swimming. Breakfast? A step above the typical waffle and pastry routine. They offered fresh fruit, yogurt (and pastries). Additionally, one morning there was also biscuits/gravy, as well as hot oatmeal in a crockpot. The next morning they served hot scrambled eggs, sausage and bacon. The best part? The ladies operating the breakfast room were as kind and accommodating as they could be. Their smiles and warm greetings were enough to bring us back!

Best value for the $

We stayed here as an alternative to the overpriced hotel that our convention was held in. My highlights: Very friendly and helpful staff, a good breakfast and amazing location. This hotel offers a very good value for the price. Walking distance to just about everything you might want to see in downtown Chicago, and a Doorman who will hail you a cab if you aren't up for the exercise. No fridge in the room, but ice makers easily accessible on each floor. Kuerig in the room. Small pool is great for kids.

You can walk to just about everything from here, and it's 2 blocks from Ogilvie Train Station. A cab ride from here to anything downtown probably won't exceed $6.00

La Quinta for the Marathon

The hotel was pretty much what we expected. Reasonable rates, nicely appointed rooms, the basic "extras" you find in most hotels these days. A pleasant surprise was the location. Located in the heart of the Chicago business district we found the hotel located on the Chicago marathon route at the 12.5 mile mark. Since the marathon was our primary reason for visiting Chicago the location was a bonus. Walk out the front door and view the race. Also, free breakfast was a plus but the weekend menu was disappointing. The weekday breakfast fare was much more main stream. The connected "Noodles" restaurant next door was also a pleasant surprise for a weekend lunch when most of the other business district lunch eateries were closed for the weekend. All in all a pleasant place to stay.
