This is a small hotel in the heart of Chinatown, just a short walk from the Chinatown/Cermak Red Line stop. There are tons of restaurants and gift shops within a block or two of the hotel.
The day I visited, it was snowing pretty heavily. The foyer and hallways were lined with cardboard boxes to catch the melting snow. I realize this is better than allowing your guests to slip on the wet floors, but it certainly wasn't an inviting first impression.
The halls are narrow and dingy, and the rooms are the same. Beds take up most of the floor space, and heavy drapes cover the small windows. The bathrooms have seen better days, too. I wouldn't say they're dirty, but they do look well used.Recommended for:Budget Travelers

There's a certain energy to Chinatown that always gets me in the mood to explore. The streets are always bustling with tourists snapping photos of the sights or residents rushing around through the Chinese markets and shops.
The Chinatown Hotel is located just off the main drag of Wentworth Road on a quieter street that's still next to all the action. You're also a hop, skip and a jump from the Cermak-Chinatown Red Line station so the rest of Chicago is right at your feet.
Despite its prime Chinatown location, this hotel doesn't have much else to offer. It's very small and the interior is faded and dingy. Narrow stairways lead to the rooms where the end of the beds nearly touch the small desks, leaving barely any walking space.
If you do stay here, definitely try some authentic dim sum!

This is a budget hotel. It is a very small hotel. There is no elevator. The rooms are basic to the point of bare-bones, but the trade-off is that you will be staying in Chinatown and Chinatown is awesome. There really is nothing like turning the corner into the hustle and bustle of this neighborhood. I cannot recommend one restaurant because there are so many restaurants and so far, every one I have tried has been good. This hotel is also near Reggie’s, a pretty popular punk bar located on the other side of the Red Line. If you’re here for tourism, the Red Line can get you almost anywhere in the city. Parking might be complicated because, as I said, the streets are very crowded.
Chinatown Hotel features express check out, coffee in the lobby, and a microwave in the lobby. Guest parking is available for a surcharge. Additional property amenities include air conditioning in public areas. The front desk is open 24 hours a day.
