First off, the location is perfect with an awesome view of the Park but the hotel is showing its age.

This is, quite honestly, the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. I came back to my room one afternoon to find the door unlocked and slightly open after housekeeping had made up the room.

My family and I stayed at the Congress last year during the holiday season. We walked to Millennium Park to ice skate, and later that night strolled down Michigan Avenue looking at all of the holiday lights. The location is great. And the price can't be beat for a downtown hotel. It's an older hotel but a good value.
