Best Western Grant Park Hotel

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very convenient, 20 minute walk to Northerly Island concert venue. For food, try the 11 Diner 1/2 block away. BW has nice, clean rooms. No fridge or microwave, slow elevators, but good beds and friendly staff!

Pool was not avail, rooms were good, walking distance to lake shore, museums, overnight parking was avail across the street for deep discount, parking in general in the area is incredibly expensive but plenty of lots around

No microwave or fridge, no breakfast, restaurant in building doesn't open til 2pm. So no breakfast. The only good thing is the location next to park and the nice remodeled rooms. I asked if employees had access to a microwave that I could use and no, they don't have one. The price of this hotel is pretty high when there are no amenities. They should at least give free bottles of water.

Convenient location to an L station, and close to the Field, Shedd, and Planetarium. Staff is excellent. However, don't plan to get much sleep. You can hear everything outside (traffic, people, construction), and I was on the 5th floor.

Location is great for the museum campus and concerts at northerly island. It's close to parking that is relatively cheap for Chicago and walking distance to transit to get around the city easily. The hotel was clean and had good amenities, the internet was fast and the bed was clean and soft. My one complaint was just that the pillows on the bed were overly soft and squishy and offered little support

Perfect location for concert we went to. Staff was very friendly. Mei's Kitchen is a great spot for breakfast. Avoid the long waits at other restaurants and,eat there. Food and staff was very good. Woukd stay here again.

advertised 125 a night didn't explain hidden fees total 200! didn't explain 50 dollars extra for parking and even though pre paid a hold was put on my credit card so i was unable to use until i checked out! watch step going into bathroom there is a slight step up which we both tripped!

The hotel is old but they are definitely updating it. The location is fantastic, there is a great place for breakfast in the building and a fantastic place called the Burger Bar at the end of the block. Valet parking is step at $52 daily.

It's a good hotel, serviceable and always willing to be helpful. My only disappointment was this particular location asked for us to pay for breakfast and parking. I suppose it's because of the location. Overall as always with all the best western I have stayed in, the service and hotel was good

Can improve on a few things. Staff was very very friendly. The room was very noisy, it sounded like I was in a boiler room. Bathroom door was very small, the room could have been cleaned a little better
