    Hostelling International USA

    Hostelling International USA

    Hotel Class:
    4.5
    7 reviews
    Excellent! - 86% of guests recommend

    Walking into HI is like walking into the common area of a college dorm. On one side is a small cafe, on the other is the reception area and a large common area with several different seating areas, some couches, some high top tables and stools. It's very welcoming, despite the somewhat impatient staff. This hostel has all the amenities ...

    Excellent! - 89% of guests recommend

    This is a nice, low-key hotel. The staff touts its homey, comfortable feel, and I think they're right to do so. The suites aren't huge, but they're plenty big enough for relaxing between meetings or tourist excursions. One of the things I like best about this hotel is the grocery service (which makes the full kitchen an asset). The also ...

    Good! - 76% of guests recommend

    The Essex Inn is a gem! I've seen their bright red sign from Grant Park hundreds of times, but never thought to look inside. I'm so glad I did. On Michigan Avenue, it's easy to overlook this smaller hotel for some more recognizable names. But it's a better value and the interior is nearly as nice as its neighbors. Like ...

    Excellent! - 91% of guests recommend

    This is such a beautiful, historic building. Some of the original details have been preserved--the floors in the elevators were my favorite, I think. The lobby and rooms have been updated but are also lovely. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly, and on a cold day in January, I was thankful for the free coffee and cookies on my ...

    Excellent! - 86% of guests recommend

    The suites here are very nice--by far my favorite decor of the suites I've seen. I love the teal sectional with chaise and pull-out couch, and the workspace/room divider is visually interesting, really unique. I can't figure out why two hotels share the same space (You get off the elevator and are facing two check-in desks that share one snack ...

    I don't know about you, but I can't afford to eat every meal in a restaurant when I'm traveling. I like the Residence Inn because every room has a cute, clean, and up-to-date kitchenette for those nights when you just want to throw together a quick dinner before heading out. I also like the decor: red furniture, stainless steel appliances, ...

    Hotel Class:
    4.5
    4 reviews
    Excellent! - 89% of guests recommend

    This hotel has warm, inviting common areas and a very friendly staff. The room was a good size for downtown Chicago, clean and brightly lit. The Pollock-esq prints were a nice change from the usual hotel room artwork and the clean, white bedding was almost serene. Unfortunately, the spa and pool were closed for renovations, so that was disappointing. It's ...

    Good! - 75% of guests recommend

    There's nothing glamorous about Comfort Suites, which is somewhat surprising with its Michigan Ave address and its proximity to the river, but I'd definitely recommend it for someone who's planning to spend a few days doing the tourist thing downtown. The suites are spacious, though the layouts are somewhat odd (in one room, the view from the bed is of ...

    Good! - 76% of guests recommend

    The South Loop Hotel seems to be in the middle of no where (by Chicago standards), but it's walking distance to the beach, Chinatown, and the Sox field. The State Street bus also goes right by, so you're minutes from downtown by public transit. The building is new and expansive, with a gift shop, a restaurant, a bar, and a ...

    Best Western River North Chicago Downtown Hotel

    Hotel Class:
    3.5
    2 reviews

    By simply looking at this hotel, it doesn't appear to have anything really special about it, but considering everything that's included, I'd definitely say it's one of the best offers in the city. First of all, you're right in the heart of River North, the city's foodie heaven and nightlife hot spot. It's not as posh as some of the ...

    Very Good! - 82% of guests recommend

    I was pleasantly surprised by the Carlton Inn, with its dark green and red color scheme, fenced off patio, and fitness room. The guestrooms are fairly simple, standard, and clean. I thought the soap and lotion dispenser in the bathroom was odd, but I'm sure it's more environmentally friendly than the usual single use bottles. The motel offers both free ...

    The new Art Deco-influenced Hotel Allegro was originally the Bismark, built in 1926, and is a beautiful space. It's located right in the Loop and has easy access to public transportation and downtown theaters. The rooms are small, but they’re also charming, plush and good use is made of the space. The décor is a mix of the hotel’s Art ...

    The Westin Michigan Avenue is in a fantastic location right in the middle of North Michigan avenue. Room rates are very reasonable and the property is comfortable. It is a good option for a no frills business trip. I've stayed at the property before and I knew what to expect. It feels a bit more like a "stereotypical" US Sheraton ...

    We really enjoyed this hotel. The lobby has a famous frescoed ceiling. It also has well decorated rooms and excellent style. The hotel bar is a great place to have a drink, it also has very delicious drinks and food. I would recommend staying here.

    This hotel is a mix of modern art and homey comfort. The lobby is the kind that’s dark even in the daytime, the front desk made to look like stacks of suitcases. But then – this is sort of hard to express – there are rocking chairs in front of a fireplace that me want to sit. I can’t put ...

    Trying to get to the Ramada via public transportation is a nightmare! You have to hop around on buses and trains and it seemingly takes forever to get to the heart of the Loop, particularly during primetime traffic hours. I would recommend staying here if you're driving into the city for a Bears game as it's super close to Soldier ...

    I dig the Talbott Hotel AND the cow statue walking up the building's exterior. Not nearly as pricey as some of the other hotels in Chicago, the Talbott delivers on location and service. The rooms are large, the location rocks and the service is all that it should be.

    The last time I was here, I saw Derrick Rose (Bulls) stroll through the lobby and not a soul stopped to ask for a picture (though I'm sure we all wanted to) because it's just not that kind of place. With floor to ceiling windows, free wi-fi, and excellent cocktail lounge and some of the best views in the city- ...

    The hotel is slightly older but well-maintained. The views are amazing and depending on the floor that you're on you can see an up close skyline of Chicago. I love that you walk out of the door and you're in the center of the city. And the junior size Olympic swimming pool is to die for!
