We stayed here for two nights during our family vacation to Chicago. Perfect location for Navy Pier, Michigan Avenue, and downtown venues. The complimentary breakfast is a great feature. All staff members were very helpful and any service needed was incredibly prompt.

Stayed with our family for five days on vacation. Location was great to walk to many events in the city. Staff was great, room was in good condition, breakfast was tasty and manager reception was relaxing! I would recommend this property to any families or business travelers as it was a newer property in excellent condition.

From the time I checked in to the Embassy suites Lakefront Dr service was perfect. Friendly staff, clean lobby, clean suite ... The bell men were friendly. The night security man was helpful, friendly . Breakfast was excellent and worth the money. Happy hour was good and included alcoholic beverages which all was included in my room.

The breakfast is anything short of total chaos. The hotel was packed with families and the lines were a mile long. They ran out of just about everything. There wasn't anywhere to sit and the eating area was a wreck. Also don't plan on swimming in the mini-pool unless you want to be elbow to elbow with every other kid...

Had a wonderful stay at this hotel! It is walking distance to Michigan Avenue and many other great places and restaurants or a short cab ride away. Awesome service from valet service to check in to check out. Decent fitness facility and the Whole Foods located literally across the street is a huge bonus!

Hotel was very clean, rooms are good size, we fit 5 people comfortably. Location is excellent, a very short walk to Michigan Ave, Navy Pier and tons of restaurants. Staff was extremely helpful. Breakfast was an ordeal - very crowded, food ran out before the service was done.

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.
