Beautiful hotel with a lot of history. Employees made it seem like an inconvenience to store my luggage there after checkout because of my conference I was attending that day. They ended up being joking but I felt they took it too far and it wasn't a very service oriented attitude. The ladies at ...
Excellent service from the valet parking staff to the reception personnel, and other staff members. They are always ready to be of service. There were two bad experiences I have experienced both times that I have stayed there. The first annoyance is the fact that they give only one towel for one ...
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Palmer House. It was my graduation weekend, and we were very well accommodated. Check in and out went smoothly, breakfast was great and the room was spacious and comfortable. It completely added to my graduation experience. I highly recommend this hotel!
I'm glad I chose the Whitehall Hotel for my first trip to Chicago. The staff was amazing and answered all of my questions and offered tips for a tourist. The location was convenient to shopping, dining, and public transportation. It would have been nice if the morning coffee station stayed open longer ...
I booked for one night in order to attend an event downtown. The room came up on Orbitz that morning and I booked it. Check in was fast (about 2 minutes) as they had all me info from Orbitz. The staff was friendly. Parking was an additional charge, but had in and out privileges. ( I booked at the ...
The hotel is in a great location of Chicago. Close to most of the important site seeing departure sites. For example, the architectural boat tour and theaters. We took the train from Ohare into the city, which was convenient and economical. The hotel staff were friendly and the room was clean. Overall, ...
Nicknamed the Second City, in reality, Chicago is second to none. Known as much for its blues — and blues brothers — as it is for its famous gangsters and deep-dish pizza, Chicago is also a mecca of art, theater, dining, and other culture.
Chicago hotels offer visitors a bit of everything. Accommodations run the gamut from bargain hotels to luxury hotels in Chicago's downtown. Guests spend the day taking in the city's many sights and tours and head to a ballgame at historic Wrigley Field, one of the best in the U.S., or they enjoy one of the many world-class museums and take in some of the first-rate theater in the evening, topping it off with a nightcap and a view of the town at the Hancock tower's Signature Lounge. Navy Pier is a great place for families to keep busy between getting some rest at one of the top Chicago hotels.
Chicago has several locations that attract trade shows from around the country. The Merchandise Mart is one of the more popular venues and is the yearly host of the National Prom Market, the USA's largest business-services trade event.
Food in Chicago: plentiful, diverse, and tasty of, course. Chicago is known for its Italian and Polish food. Lou Malnati's, which has several Chicago locations, is famous for its Chicago-style deep-dish pizza.
Chicago visitors won't want to miss the Art Institute of Chicago and its impressive collection of Asian, modern and American art and much, much more.
Any shopper booking a room in one of the many Chicago hotels shouldn't forget the Magnificent Mile. This section of Michigan Avenue is filled with history, shopping opportunities, and other entertainment to make your trip more than worthwhile.
Chicago has two major-league baseball teams, the Cubs and White Sox, and given the fierce loyalty of each team's fans, it's a good thing their respective parks are located so far apart. NFL fans have the Chicago Bears, while hockey fans root for the Blackhawks, and basketball fans cheer for the Bulls.
Chicago is divided into over 70 different neighborhoods, each with its own distinct feel and flavor. The Downtown Loop, or city center, is the commercial and financial district, and many of the city's cultural institutions are located here as well, including the Magnificent Mile, a shopper's paradise, and Grant Park, where guests can choose to stay at the luxury Talbott Hotel. Travelers seeking one of the less expensive Chicago hotels opt for the Days Inn on the North Side, located right in the middle of the most dense population center of the city and near Lincoln Park.
The South Side is Chicago's largest area and includes many parks and public beaches. Also located here are Jackson Park, site of the 1893 Columbian Exposition, the Museum of Science and Industry (the last remaining building from the Exposition), and U.S. Cellular Field, home of the Chicago White Sox. The West Side is known for its ethnic enclaves and is home to the NBA's Chicago Bulls and the NHL's Chicago Blackhawks. Overall, visitors should try to find Chicago hotels they can use for a base of operations because this vast city and all its sites can't be explored in one day — or even a week.
Room had the standards needed and met my expectations for an economy hotel. The restaurant was pleasat, breakfast was tasty (step up from Hampton Inn's), and fitness room was roomy with good quality equipment.
Hotel offers great amenities (namely free parking).
Beautiful, modern hotel in the River North District. It made a great visit to Chicago even better.
I booked for one night in order to attend an event downtown. The room came up on Orbitz that morning and I booked it. Check in was fast (about 2 minutes) as they had all me info from Orbitz. The staff was friendly. Parking was an additional charge, but had in and out privileges. ( I booked at the same hotel in the winter and parking was included, so check when making the reservation). Room was clean and had a view south.
