“Basic but good”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

Stayed here with my aunt for 1 night in Sept of '10. We had already stayed at a nearby hotel and were glad to move on to another hotel, but not too far as we had some luggage to carry.

Found this place online and booked it the day before arrival. It is an older building with a simple outdated interior. We checked in early to our first room but the bathroom had a leaky faucet which we knew waas going to drive us nuts at night. Went to ask for another room and since there was only 1 person working the desk at the time, she was busy with a group that just checked in so we had a bit of a wait..oh well. Luckily there was a room available and it was better but like the rest very basic. It is a Best Western after all.

Nothing particularly good or bad about the second room. For the price we knew what to expect. Location was good as it was not far from where we needed to go and what we needed to do.

May stay here again as a last option.

The Location of the Best Western you cannot beat, hands down perfect location.
The Service in the housekeeping department was definately lacking, Hotel could definately use some much needed upkeep, pool was closed & nothing mentioned at check in nor did the Managment decide to go above & beyond & notify any guests BEFORE Their arrivals...not impressed...

We visited Chicago in February and stayed at this hotel after reading they had a great location.
Overall, this hotel is an excellent value considering their amenities, distance from major landmarks, service and price.

Location:
The hotel is located in Downtown Chicago, right in front of Grant Park. You can get there easily on the CTA from O'Hare by hopping on the blue line, and transferring to the red line. Cost is minimal on the CTA, but you should be traveling light as you will need to walk some when transferring lines at Jackson. From the hotel, you are within walking distance (10-15 minute walks) to Millenium Park, Shedd Aquarium, Field Museum, Cultural Center, South Loop, and many other major attractions. You are also a few minutes away via the CTA, which is about 2 blocks from the hotel. There are also many diners and excellent restaurants nearby.

Service:
The staff- including bellhops, receptionist, and maid service were all professional and helpful. We were promptly greeted upon check in and they responded to all of our questions and requests right away.

Amenities:
There is a pool, fitness center, computers for use and free Wi-Fi. Although there is no breakfast included, there is an adjacent restaurant and also several great diners nearby. Parking is additional, but you can park at several garages nearby. If you are traveling light, take the CTA.

Rooms:
Rooms were standard-on the smaller side, which is the norm for Metro cities. Our room was clean and came equipped with iron, fridge, microwave, tv, hairdryer, coffee maker and toiletries. The toilet and ceilings were a bit worn out, but it was clean.

Price:
Considering the price, the hotel is a great value. Although it is not as grand and luxurious as other hotels (Hilton, Sheraton, etc..), the furnishings were modern and clean. It was sufficient for a nice, comfortable stay.

If you are visiting Chicago, this is a fantastic hotel for the budget conscious, but picky traveler.

My family and I decided to take a quick vacation to Chicago around Christmas for some shopping and fun. Not wanting to spend too much money so close to the Holidays, I searched for a reasonable priced, good location hotel. Best Western Grant Park met out needs. While this hotel may not be the prettiest in Chicago; the staff was awesome and the location was great.

This hotel has nice location. Only 10 min walk to Chicago Art Institute and other sights. But rooms and equipment are too old! I have chenged rooms twice, because heaters were too noisy as on a plant! I could not sleep at all! And finally I got quiet room, but I got freezing every night. Stuff was very friendly, but this hotel REALLY needs RENOVATION! It ned to be fixed!
