A great room in the perfect location

I traveled to Chicago in order to attend some acting workshops. I chose the Affinia for its location and the price on Orbitz. It turns out that the hotel is in the heart of countless restaurants, shops and tourist attractions. I took a cab on the first day, because it rained, but I walked everywhere else after that. The area feels completely safe (except for the traffic!) and despite being alone in the big city, I had no fear when walking around. The downside to this location is the street noise. I was on the 10th floor and found the noise to be very loud at night. I sleep with ear plugs, so it didn't interfere with my rest, but some might be put off by the noise. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. One of the girls at the desk went to the trouble of walking into the rain and hailing a cab for me when I asked how I call a cab (I'm not from the city). All around, I was very pleased, but be ready for the city noise in this area.

Wonderful Location

We really enjoyed the location of the hotel - close to everything, including a Walgreens. The room was spacious and modern. Service was top notch. Had breakfast at the hotel and it was very good. This was our first visit to Chicago and the Affinia made it successful from the start. Only downside was that one of the elevators was not able to be used which made for long waits.

If you like bicycling, this is a great city to bike in and around. The lake trail was spectacular. Even city riding is practical and a great way to get around. Bikes can be rented from the Navy Pier or on the Riverwalk.

ate out every night, sightseeing the service was first-class except for conceirge's recommendation of steak place (expensive and not good). This was a very enjoyable trip with the front desk being very helpful with directions and ideas to visit.

Great Place!

Service at the Affinia Chicago was great! The staff was friendly and eager to help at a moment's notice. [...] and [...] are the best! The C-View bar/lounge upstairs is a great spot too, drawing in patrons every night. Overall, the Affinia Chicago is a great place to stay. The proximity to the shops, movie theater, and Navy Pier cannot be beat!

The complimentary Affinia trolley to and from Navy Pier run on the weekend only. The city provides free trolley service along Grand Avenue and Ontario (both are close enough to the hotel), but you can actually walk the route in 10-15 minutes.

Great deal!

I am originally from Chicago but wanted to play "tourist" on this trip. I found a discount for the Affinia and was a bit worried about the staff and the noise, given the previous reviews. However, I thought that this hotel was fantastic. The location was perfect- easy access to the river, the lake, the loop, Michigan Ave shopping, and tons of restaurants nearby. I could easily walk or take the el anywhere I wanted to. The staff was friendly and really helpful. The room was phenomenal- we ended up in a Queen bed suite that was superb! While there was some noise from the ambulances for the nearby Northwestern hospital, it wasn't too bad, especially if you're used to living in a city. I highly recommend this hotel.

Great Location

If you are there for shopping, this is a great location. We were there for the Bluesfest. This is the first time we have stayed north of the river and fond the location a bit out of the way. I would recommed this hotel to anyone who is a sound sleeper; the very regular ambulance siren noise could be a problem.

Always a Pleasure

Lovely accomodations, comfortable, and as always, made an overnite getaway our extreme pleasure! The only inconvenience was the missing lighted "make-up" mirror that I had enjoyed using on previous vacations, so I didn't bring one with me. The staff were great and more than welcoming, as usual, (Pedro and Annie, favs). If we had our way, we would always stay at the AFFINIA CHICAGO.
