Red Roof Inn

The wheelchair rooms aren't exactly accessible because you have to bring your own shower chair but don't say anything until you get to the hotel. Also ,the last day I was there we couldn't shower because they were experiencing trouble with the water pipes.

Overnight in Downtown Chicago

Fantastic location, right off the magnificent mile, steps away from the heart of Chicago's shopping scene. The hotel wasn't anything special, a little old and run down, but if you are just looking for a place to spend the night that is convenient to everything downtown, this is not a bad option.

Spotless room, very friendly staff, bed too short!

The location is wonderful. The staff all lived up to the reviews I had read before arriving--really very friendly and helpful. My room, and corridor, were spotlessly clean and the room had all the little amenities like soap, tissues, iron and board, hairdryer, etc. There were lots of good towels. The room was on the small side with no chair and I lay propped up on one of the beds to watch the news on the large TV. But I am no giant at 72" and I found the bed to be short for sleeping! I don't see restaurant to be a problem. They have a room service arrangement with an outside vendor and, significantly, there is a really lovely and reasonably priced all day restaurant in the hotel directly across the street. There is also a restaurant that's part of a high end national chain directly across the intersecting street.

Getting your money's worth?

Staff very nice. TV remote not funtional. Has a small fridge and a safe. Not very clean, but a reasonable value for the money. I don't go for fancy when I travel so this is adequate.

Good Location, But Not A Comfortable Place to Stay

This hotel is located in the Magnificence Mile very close to Michigan Avenue. While I loved the location, the paint job in the rooms was horrible. There was cluttered dust in some corners and overall it wasn't that comfortable. However, for the few hours that I needed to stay there it was a pretty good value overall. The room was reasonably clean and had an iron, a bed and a shower. For this particular stay, I didn't need anything fancy. For the price, I recommend staying here for a short visit at a convenient location.
