    Great service, great rooms, and great breakfast buffet! All food is fresh as it can be and it's within walking distance of all shopping.

    This is a nice hotel with a good location. The managers reception and the breakfast were very good. The staff seemed helpful. The location is near all of the action and makes it easy to get to restaurants and the major tourist sites.

    A very nice hotel. It's a little bit off the hustle and bustle of Michigan Avenue, which makes it a little quiter. Nice views if you can snag one facing the lake.

    Came here on a business trip in December! Brrrr.... but this hotel is perfectly located... close enough to walk to the shopping and dining on Michigan Ave, a nice restaurant inside the hotel, easy to find taxicabs to get anywhere!

    Like all Embassy Suites, a huge atrium, nice, comfortable rooms with a kitchenette and a living room, very friendly check-in staff.

    Free drinks in the evening at the manager's reception. Good meeting spaces - very comfortable meeting rooms.

    I would recommend this even if you're on vacation - it's really convenient to everything and is a great value given its stellar location!
