Chicago Getaway 2013

This is my third time coming to this hotel. Every time I visit Chicago my friends and family always stay at this hotel. The staff is friendly and very knowledgeable. This is the perfect location. It's right around the corner from the train/ bus station and just minutes from other activities. The complementary breakfast has a variety of delicious foods to choose from and the beds are very comfortable. I will definitely be coming back.

it's ordinary

it's not located in a very lively spot for weekend fun, but when your choices are limited; this place will do the trick. free breakfast was a plus. and, it's relative closeness to train lines was pretty convenient. i do feel it's not a $250-300/night (what i paid) hotel.

Decent

This hotel was decent. I needed to be in the downtown area and this hotel was a few blocks away from where I needed to be. They let us check in early, although they commented that it wasn't busy and if it was busy they wouldn't have let us. I was a little disappointed that there weren't ice machines on every floor, they seemed to be on every odd numbered floor, we were on 6. Other hotels I've been in, set out new shampoos and soaps for the next day. They didn't. The heat was a bit slow to go on. I keep kosher, so can't say much about the taste of breakfast, we just took the teas and some fruit. They also had make your own waffles station, oatmeal, eggs, bacon and muffins. The pool also seems to be in an odd place. It's set off the lobby and it faces the street. That being said I would stay here again.

The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago has a cute little money museum inside and it's just a few minutes walk away from the hotel. Sears tower is also nearby.

This hotel is very close to subway station. So I can go anywhere in Chicago easily. And also I saved money for rent a car.

Great downtown location.

Can't really beat the location. Just a block walk to the Loop (Washington & Wells station). That was a prime consideration for us. One of our party had never been to Chicago, so we appreciated the walkable distance to Grant and Millenium Parks, Art Institute, Michigan Ave., and trains. We were there primarily for a concert at Wrigley Field, and the red line station was just a few blocks walk. Positives include the aforementioned location, a clean room, helpful- enough staff (many of whom were very friendly and helpful when we needed directions or help getting around), very comfortable bed, nice, big, glass-walled shower, nice towels, and a really nice free breakfast. Negatives are, well, it's definitely not a luxury hotel. The king-bed room is smallish. The only toiletries are a bar of soap and a tiny bottle of shampoo (no brand I recognize). No lotion or fancy extras. Breakfast is generous and has a good selection: eggs, bacon or sausage, biscuits and gravy on weekends, oatmeal, cold cereal, yogurt, fruit, make-your-own waffles, juice, coffee, bagels, muffins, etc. But pay attention to the time. They serve until 9 on weekdays, and by 9:00 they've pretty much cleared it away--fast! It's very much a motel-like, serve-yourself arrangement with styrofoam plates and cups and plastic utensils. Not fancy, but a nice breakfast. That's a money-saver for those of us who would otherwise be eating out every morning. Speaking of eating out, bear in mind this is the downtown business district, not a good restaurant area. There are places to eat close by, but the best restaurants, especially for dinner are going to be outside of this area. Many of the casual restaurants close by don't stay open in the evening. But we had no problem walking several blocks or taking a train to other areas for eating out. I'd stay here again for the location and the breakfast, but kept having the feeling I was paying more luxury hotel prices and not getting much luxury. As long as you go well aware this is a La Quinta and not a fancy hotel, despite Chicago prices, you'll likely be satisfied with what you get.

The Walgreens a block away sells train passes. That can be a convenient way to bypass the bustle of trying to sort out options at the station.
