I would definitely recommend this hotel. Everything from the friendliness of the staff to the room/view was great. the parking garage is under the hotel. You can either valet or self park. If you self park you do go up one elevator from the parking garage, Walk around the corner to go up to the sky level (hotel check in)....

This hotel is definitely showing its age. On the day I arrived, there was construction work going on inside. Since all the rooms are arranged around an atrium, there was no unaffected area. The free morning breakfast was nice, except for the long lines. It's a relatively safe environment, which is evident by the number of families that stay here....

Wow! What a fantastic check-in experience during a busy Sunday. I appreciate the kind and friendly hospitality. Workout facilities and the pool/whirlpool are so nice, especially after a long day. The sauna seemed to take quite a bit to warm up, but maybe it was operator error ;) I doubt I would stay here again as a business traveler, however...

Wonderful experience and perfect location. We were in town for a wedding (paid a wedding room block rate which was lower than the advertised room rate). The hotel was clean, staff was friendly, and the location was great. We ran down the lakefront to Lincoln Park Zoo, I highly recommend!

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.
