Perfect Location

I chose this hotel for it's location and had a really good deal. Hotel was better than I expected. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Hotel has free wi-fi, huge plus for me (some hotels near the same area charge you even for wi-fi) . Room was big for a double-bed room and very clean. I definitely will book again...

Cheap comfortal well-located

Was surprised by how perfectly competent the room was (and right in downtown at that). I would've loved thicker pillows and the desk people freely admitted that the key cards get demagnetized really easily, but other than that it was everything I could've hoped for.

Well you're right in downtown for the love of god. Millennium Parkand the Art Institute are five minutes and adjacent to one another. Epic Burger on State was great for fast non-Fast food and I plan on taking my last chance to eat Sal Malnatti's and Chicago deep dish before I leave tomorrow. SM's also on State and the two restaurants were even closer than the other destination's I mentioned; one very old and the other very new. Just like the other pair of places

Nice!

The hotel itself, its location, staff, cleanness and facilities are very good. However, its price is not that cheap! It does not include breakfast, lunch or dinner! :)

A Smart Deal

Located in the heart of Chicago Downtown, 5 minutes walking from Millenium Park, 7 minutes from Willis Tower, metro at the corner. good sleeping quality. Ask for a room away from the elevators and the trains. Elevators slow. But location compensate. Shopping, drugstores, fast food, you name it. Everything at your hand. From the airport, take the blue line to city, stop at Jackson, down the escalators, take the red line to Ashland/63, stop at Harrison, the hotel is 100 meters away from you. By train $2.25. Returning is easy also. Take red line to Hoiward, stop at Jackson, upo the stairs, take the blue Line to Ohare, you are done, for $2.25. Is 45 minutes trip from airport by metro. I recommend this hotel. Is my second time there. And I will return again. Thank you Watson, for the great room 825.

Ask for a room away from elevators and trains if you are a light sleeper like me. There is a safe in each room.

Primetime location; very affordable

The hotel was beautifully remodeled. The bathroom was very nice. The room was very clean. It was small but I just wanted affordable and good location. I would recommend this place to anyone. The only things that would alert you to the building's age are the the elevator and the windows. But Neither one was a problem.

My review of Travelodge Hotel Downtown Chicago

The Travelodge downtown Chicago was a no frills stay. The room was small but adequate.The bed was very comfortable. I wish there had been at least one suitcase stand though. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Check in was simple and check out was just as easy. The biggest beef I had was the only option of valet parking. Location was great. Chicago is a lovely city and Lake Michigan was an easy skip away as well as cool shopping on Michigan Ave. I'll be back to Chicago. I will probably save a bit extra for a more luxurious hotel but if your wallet is thin, as mine was at the time, theTravelodge is a pretty safe bet.

Good for the money

My stay at the Chicago Travelodge was a pleasant one. Although it is an older property it was roomy and comfortable.

Good value

The Travelodge Hotel Downtown (Chicago) is well located (one block from Michigan Ave.), quiet, and provided excellent value for the money. The room and bathroom were a little small, but large enough. The matresses were very comfortable, the pillows a little small, and the shower was good. Coffee was available in the room, but breakfast was available only in independent restaurants - the closest (connected to the hotel) was a very spartan take-out with styrofoam cups and plastic implements.
