I had reserved two king rooms. One was ready at 230p.m. when we arrived for check in, the other was almost ready. we all went to the first room, very large, spacious, very nice. When the second room was ready my husband and I went to it. HALF the size of the other one. SAME PRICE. The rooms were very clean. They are painting the interior, which will be very nice when complete. Area was easy to walk to many things as I did not want to pay to park at several places. Hotel does charge to park... Read more

This hotel is being updated. We were in a newly updated room so the room felt fresh. However, there were no signs up to find the room. Since there were multiple hallways, it took us a while to find our room. We had a double bed room. Beds were full and not queen. We didn't use the pool, but it looked nice. There was a small 3 piece gym as well. A deck/balcony off of the pool area was nice and had beautiful views. Elevators were extremely small and slow. We opted for the stairs most times. P...

The hotel is being updated (it's in an older building) but our room was very modern and spacious. The bed was great. I slept better there than I do in my own bed at home.

Yes, the hotel is nicely situated, but not the best for business travelers. I stayed in both sections of their hotel on two visits.

In the main section, on my second stay, I got no Wifi in my room and had to go to the lobby to connect. And then the elevator broke down. I walked up to the 6th floor 4 or 5 times.

It was a nice little hotel perfect for a short visit, to Chicago town. Near to all the nice stores downtown. Stuff is very Friendly. If you are driving be prepare to spend a lot of money in parking spaces. Gets a little overwhelming but Chicago is a great city. I won't recommend to drive. If you drive pay the hotel 35 dlls parking fee it's as cheap as it gets and you get to take your car in and out. Everything is walking distance from the hotel but is a must to have a good walking shoes.

The hotel staff are quite nice and knowledgeable about the city. The room was cleanish and the bathroom was a different story. There was yellow residue at the bottom of the tub, cracked walls, the shower spout was not attached to the wall and showed a very large gap and the door in the bathroom was very filthy. The air conditioner did not work properly and it took about five hours to get it down three degrees. The bedding was itchy but the decor of the room was lovely.

We stayed here in early July and if I were staying in Chicago again, I'd be 95% sure I'd just stay here again. The place isn't much to look at from the outside or the corridors inside but the rooms appear to have been renovated recently and the in room experience was fantastic. The price isn't cheap but it isn't expensive for Chicago but the location is perfect.

They were also clean and the bed was comfortable. We parked there and used lyft to travel around the city. Good stay!

We chose to stay at the BWRN because of our excellent experience last June. The staff all remembered us and sincerely seemed to be glad we were back. Again, Wallace was right there at the door to greet us and make us feel welcome and valued. DeAndre got us into just the right room quickly and took care of our every request. Jamie and Danielle always met us with a pleasant demeanor and plenty of smiles. Dolores, the manager, made certain that we not only felt important, but that she genuinel... Read more

Great hotel with restaurant on site and across the street from hop on hop off bus. Ideal for sightseeing. Staff are excellent and very friendly. All in all this made our first visit to Chicago perfect experience.

Bed was very comfortable. Located within walking distance of Mag Mile and GREAT restaurants! The staff was very helpful when trying to navigate locations we wished to visit. Getting to the room was somewhat confusing but the staff helped a LOT!

The bed was nice is about all I can say about this hotel. Don't expect a lot. Make sure you are aware of any and all additional fees that they may add to your bill. Don't expect a working bathroom or a good view from the room. The bathroom is exceptionally tiny. and the entrance to the room is a tiny hallway that you have trouble maneuvering in.

Staff were friendly especially Wallace the front man who did everything he possibly could to be helpful, even running out to redirect us when he thought we were going the wrong way. Room was clean, bed comfy. Our neighbours were extremely noisy at 2 am and despite ringing the desk to complain, nothing was done. Same happened the next night, Showers clean and good, Swimming pool fine. Would stay again, hotel was within easy reach of everywhere! Reasonably priced. Breakfast was fine again reasonab...

VERY very old hotel. It looks bad from the outside and inside, the only area that looks nice is the lobby, other than that it looks like a very cheap motel. I had a very annoying buzzing noise coming from of the wall lights even after I closed it. Talked to the reception about it but nothing changed. Overall the room was ok, the bed was comfortable. When I came to check-in, the employee barely told me where my room was, she didn't bring up anything about where the facilities are located. One ver... Read more

Stayed here in early October for 2 nights when we flew to Chicago for a concert. The two of us shared a room with two double beds with a friend. The room was clean and in working order and big enough for three adults. The bathroom was fine as well, average size. The wifi worked well, staff was nice and the location was great as well...really close to major tourist attractions or the subway station to get you there. The biggest beef was the fact that breakfast wasn't included. We generally ... Read more

We used that hotel for the Chicago marathon weekend, and was a good idea. The start and the finish line to the marathon was near to the hotel. The saturday, for the International 5K run, the start line was ubicated at 6 blocks to the BWH. Are many and good restaurants and cultural places to go nearby. The restaurant has good plates (pizza, pasta and others options) and good options for everybody. The breakfast was really good.

We loved this hotel. The staff was very friendly. The baggage hold service was great and we were able to sight see without having to take our luggage with us everywhere. We booked early and got a great price. The rooms were also updated, which was great. One issue with the hotel was that they don't have complimentary breakfast since they are connected to a restaurant. Our other issue was that the walls were paper thin. I could clearly hear the guests in the next room's conversation. Also, we cou... Read more

Location is everything... Just like every other best Western hotel this one also keeps up to the name. Right in front of rock and roll McDonald's it's a good hotel. Everything at walking distance. Rooms are good, small though. Staff is indeed awesome!!! Overall a stay and smiling faces...

First off, yes...this is an older hotel. It is a Best Western, not the Hyatt. There are little inconveniences like stairs to get into the lobby. ***ALSO*** They charge a $50 a day incidental fee UPFRONT. I just stayed there over the weekend and I was NOT expecting that. Nor was I expecting them to run the entire weekend UPFRONT either. Despite what they told me, not all Best Westerns do that, or charge that high of an incidental fee. Heart attack aside, they were very nice. I wasn't impressed... Read more

I had a bad experience at the Ohio House across the street. I called the Best Western to see if they had availability and they did. I walked across the street and checked in. It was awesome. Thank you

Our stay at the Best Western was great. The pizza at the hotel restaurant, Pizzeria Oro, was fantastic! We ate there several times and ordered breakfast delivered by room service. The proximity to the red line was perfect and we even walked to Michigan Ave for shopping.

My wife and I were in Chicago for three days and 2 nights and stayed here for the first time. We loved the walk ability and access to Michigan Ave. and many restaurants. The rooms were well maintained with very comfortable mattresses. The parking was very reasonable for downtown Chicago @ $25 a day. It was well worth the stay.
