Once you get past the elevator and lobby, its an Embassy Suite. We went to the Field Museum, came back, went swimming and with pure exhaustion (but with joy) went to sleep! Worth every penny and near many Chicago places one visits.

Both greeted me with a friendly smile and went out of their way to accomodate my needs. They both had excellent attention to details, and both employees are reasons why I am a loyal Hilton fan.

Convenient location, great breakfast buffet, nightly cocktails and courteous staff. While staying there I enjoyed talking with Steven M, who works here. Was able to offer anything I needed and directed me to a pharmacy nearby that I needed. Thanks for a nice stay. John

We have stayed at this Embassy Suites about seven times over the last 12 years. It is definitely time for this hotel to get some TLC.

Great location! Rooms were quite spacious. Bellmen were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good but crowded. Try to go early. It would be a nice touch if the coffee was left out for awhile past breakfast while people linger and chat. This was a great hotel for my family. Clean, friendly, great location...

We stayed at the Embassy Suites a few days before Thanksgiving. The location was perfect. We purchased the package with parking and just beware--the parking garage is very far away.

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
