Nice hotel, we loved it. Great room for a family, slept 6 comfortably. Cooked to order breakfast and reception cocktails included in price of room. Kids loved the glass elevator. Staff were very nice.

This is a fantastic place, walking distance to many restaurants, shopping, and the Navy Pier.

Very close to the mag mile, we were able to walk and see the light show! My kids enjoyed the pool, and the breakfast.

Great location, friendly staff. Breakfast was wonderful and delicious. Also enjoyed the cocktails in the evening.

Hotel has a good location, friendly staff, great views, and is comfortable. Nice gift shop. I've stayed here before. On this stay the Happy Hour food offerings were PITIFUL, but they give you 4 free drinks and the line moved fast for the drinks--good selection on the drinks. I still don't understand why a hotel with room rate that i paid a few hundred dollars for doesn't give me at least 2 free bottles of water in the fridge of the suite. The room coffee is awful. And I hope you're not an early riser because breakfast isn't until 7:30 am!!!

Nice Hotel Close to everything. Included breakfast.

We arrived early to town and when I arrived at the hotel they were helpful in getting us our room earlier then check-in. Our room was amazing! Lots of room and comfortable. Had two beds and a sofa sleeper that was huge! A nice view from our window. The breakfast had so much variety and was great. We left before they had everything set up for breakfast the last day, so that was kind sad. Dinner wasn't much. Nachos. Could have been more, comparable to breakfast. Overall, a great place to stay and close by a lot of things. Just about a 20-30 min walk away.

the location was convenient to shopping, room had a view of lake over Lake Shore Drive, plus view of the city. Happy hour (suitable for family or business): food was very nice and received 4 comp drink tickets per person per day. There are 3 sinks in this roon! Sink in the bedroom, bathroom--great for getting ready at same time as travel companion, and a "butler sink" by the coffee maker. Embassy Suites have a living room in addition to a bedroom, with a door between so one can sleep while night owls work at computer--TV in each room, actually. Large desk with 3 chairs.

We booked this hotel mainly because of its location and I was expecting a decent stay. What I was not prepared for was the LARGE number of people "feeding at the troth" (Free Breakfast) early in the morning. I should have guessed as much as the room had a brochure commenting on High, Medium, and Low breakfast traffic. Also, I asked the front desk if my daughter could have a late check out and was told NO with no uncertain terms (after he checked my reservation???). I am a Hilton Honors member but booked via Orbitz; should this have made any difference.? Finally, you need a coffee/tea/snack bar in the lobby! Who wants to lounge in the lobby or kill hours because you could not check out late without a hot beverage???

Excellent location close to the pier and the park. Many activities were within walking distance.

A bit over powering scent at first check in, they must've tried to air out a smell. Nice big room, breakfast was good, but the same options all days. Pool was tiny and option for late check out was not available.

Overall this hotel is great. Like most people said it’s in a great location. The staff was very helpful and checking in was easy and painless. The swimming pool got real crowded around 5:00 on a Saturday. I’m not the swimmer but my kids enjoyed the pool while they could. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the high floor city view was cool to look out with the kids and see the lights. It was a great place to check out the city with the little ones.

Good location. Loved the Whole Foods across street and restaurants close by. It was walking distance (less than a mile) from museums. service and food was good. Decent workout equipment. The pool is quite narrow so it was too crowded every night for us to go. also, breakfast lines can be quite long if you go during peak hours, 15-20 min so be prepared or go early. It must be a popular place to stay!

Took the train in for a 3 night stay with two grandsons (9 & 12) to show them the iconic sites. Enjoyed the complimentary made to order breakfast with many options as well as the complimentary evening cocktails, beverages and light snack. It was good to come unwind after busy days. Our only complaint was the small pool, overcrowded, which our kids chose not to use. All and all we would be happy to stay again.

We stayed here with our 3 kids (7,5, & 9 months) for a few days over our spring break. The room was such a nice size, especially for what we paid and our family size because we had our own room to ourselves, then the sofa bed for the two older kids, and still room for the pack n play. The hotel was pretty and well-kept. The location was great for getting to Navy Pier and to get to Magnificent Mile shops and restaurants. Whole Foods, Target, Walgreen's, movies and bowling all within about 3 minutes! However, I didn't love that we had to come in via one set of elevators and then go to a whole different set to get up to our rooms. The pool was insanely crowded at all times but that was to be expected during spring break and the kids could not have cared less. As a parent, it was stressful to have them in there with so many others at all times. The pool had waaaaay too much chlorine for us, but again, the kids didn't care. Lastly, the breakfast buffet was not very good food and was also insanely crowded anytime after 7:30. It was definitely not worth the wait. In summary, it was a great hotel if you avoid the pool and the buffet.

Very nice hotel. Close to shopping, restaurants, and entertainment venues. Room and space were exceptional. Breakfast and evening snacks/beverages were a nice amenity.
