Chicago South Loop Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I was there for a conference at McCormick place for several days. I love the proximity. It is a totally painless 15-minute walk to McCormick place. Also, the hotel has free parking. Since I drove to Chicago but then didn't need the car for going anywhere, this was a perfect scenario. I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone, but especially those going to events in the McCormick Place area who are not afraid of a bit of walking.

The hotel is easy to locate and I like that it has free on site parking. It's also very close to Soldier field and offered a paid shuttle service for Bears game. The Sports bar was closed for renovations which is a drawback since there aren't any other sports bar options nearby. We stayed 3 nights and housekeepers didn't clean the room.

It was a very nice hotel and the deal we got was awesome. Very lovely place

Smells bad and there were lots of bugs. I would not stay here again.

Big, clean rooms. Good price. Decent location just outside of downtown. Nothing in walking distance for visitors. No amenities and hardly any necessities like shower gel. FREE PARKING though.

Hotel offers great amenities (namely free parking).

Good things: location to downtown, easy access to bus, free wifi, great staff, clean room, free parking*. not so good things: room was facing street side where the train made loud noise. try to get on the inside for peaceful sleep, loud clatter from air conditioner at low or high speed, absolute worse pillows ruining night sleep, one elevator out of service causing delays. free parking only if space available. expect to park on street if you arrive late as we did, bad tasting coffee, no microwave in room, only one available in business center. for the price paid a strictly below average hotel.

We had a great stay at south loop, everything We wanted to do was close to the hotel, the area was quiet, will stay again

This hotel is located a short 15 minute bus ride to center of State Street and then two blocks to Michigan Ave. The Chicago South Loop hotel has everything you need for a pleasant stay and FREE Parking!!! Would stay again to enjoy both the location and the friendly staff. We were able to stay five nights in the city without breaking the bank.

would not stay here again. Price good, free parking nice but room had 2 empty beer bottles left over from previous guests and the bathroom shampoo and body lotion dispensers were empty. Noticed when taking shower. Doesn't feel like a well kept hotel

Enjoyed my stay very much and found all the staff very nice and helpful. Woudn't mind coming back again.

Had a great experience, the area is south of down town, neighborhood is quiet. We took in the sites had lunch at Carsons, dinner at Ginos pizza and spent time with family..

The Chicago Loop Hotel was fine but they put us in their "sister" hotel for the 1st night due to a/c issues! Really bad neighborhood and had to pack up and move the 2nd night. Told us they would give us some credit for the extra hassle and taxi, but nothing. We booked 3 months in advance - move somebody else! Ended up the 2nd night with no a/c but a fan so it never got fixed. Paid far too much for the hassle we went through. On top of that, they charged my card a total of 5 times! "Woops" Had to wait for all the credits back.

The hotel is a little bit old. The room is not look like on the picture. It is not very clean. But the hotel is near to Chinatown, very nice.

ATTENDED A MUSIC FESTIVAL AT NORTHERLY ISLAND PAVILION AND THIS HOTEL WORKED OUT GREAT!!

Everything was wonderful as far as the front desk help, cleanliness of the room and perfect fitness facility. My only complaint is that they were not able to accommodate a late checkout for me Saturday. And the continental breakfast started a bit late since I need to leave by 7:30 for the conference I was attending there. I appreciated there being a refrigerator in my room and free parking. Those things are important to me when I travel. I would definitely stay there again when in town.

With a price much lower than downtown hotels, we expected lower quality and hoped for the best. We were pleasantly surprised. The location is just south of downtown just off the freeway, with easy access to get back on. Easy circular drive to check in and free parking. The lobby was spacious and attractive. The staff could not have been friendlier or more welcoming. The room was large and clean, with refrigerator and free wifi. Beds and pillows were very comfortable.

staff was very accomadating when i called to check-in early since our flight was arriving early in the morning. Staff was also very helpful when they arranged to hold out bags after check-out so we could do some last minute sightseeing since our flight would not take off til later in the evening. i did not like that the housekeeper did not clean our room while we were gone but on checkout day, we must have had 3 different housekeepers come to the room before checkout time to ask what time we would be leaving (they do know what time is check out right??!!). I thought this was very rude and i guess they were very anxious to get us out of the room so they could clean it but i wish they had this gumption the day before when we were out sightseeing.

I had stayed here many times in the past. It is close to Chinatown for meals:) Room was always quiet and clean. Staff always friendly! However, this time around, everything went wrong. In the middle of the night, a group of people was yelling and loud talking in the hall way for about 5 minutes. Then later the same night (early in the morning), a car alarm went off for about 20 minutes!!! No staff took action. Finally, the car's battery died down and the alarm was not sounding as loud as the beginning. Any way, it is time to find another "home hotel" for my future stays.

Wery nice hotel with parking. 12 min walk to McCormick Place West Bldg

11 W 26th Street Chicago IL
