"I stayed at this Hotel August 9-11 The Staff were friendly and the Hotel Clean. After reading the reviews I was worried about the room and cleanliness but what a pleasant surprise. The rooms were clean and large, 12 foot celeings view of the Lake. The rooms certainly could use a makeover but for what I paid the room surpassed expectations. all the negative ratings are unwarranted and a bit extreme. If you are not going to look for every thing that cosmetically is wrong with this hotel please stay here it's a great location, wonderful hotel."

"I was in Chicago over the weekend of 7/19-20 for a concert at Wrigley. Discovered that another concert was happening over the weekend at Northerly Island. I think the entire concert audience of both shows was staying at the Congress Plaza. Lots of credit to the hotel staff who moved the check-in line along quite quickly (about 50 people deep). I felt bad for visitors to the hotel/city who were not attending these concerts, they may have felt overwhelmed. The hotel itself is 'vintage' and while it's a great value for the proximity to everything in Chicago, the hotel has many nice attributes but the rooms are efficient and spacious - if you want more refined accommodations, perhaps another hotel is recommended."

"Because I had been to Chicago the summer before, I did not have high expectations on a 3 star hotel. I was satisfied for the price. Yes the carpets were a little scruffy, especially around the edges and the bathtub was a little small, but the opportunity to stay in a beautiful historical hotel was wonderful! A friendly security guard was gracious to direct me to the magnificent ballroom and turned the lights on just for me so I could see the grandeur of it all. Wow!!! What a place to have a wedding!!! Elegant!!!! My younger 30 year-old daughter, my 34 year-old daughter-in-law, and our 26 year-old friend were a little disappointed at first, but realized how special this place was by the time we left and said they would definitely stay there again. The location could not have been better! Strategically located to have close access to all the sites. If you want to be catered to and spend your whole time in the hotel, I feel sorry for you. You might just be better off going to the suburbs. My party and I however plan to return to the Congress Plaza the next time we go and just hope rooms will be available when we want them."

"We just loved everything about this hotel, the history, the elegant decor,tall ceilings, the welcoming cool air conditioned room and the ability to open the windows for the cool refreshing lake Michigan night breezes. Of course, the location to Grant park is excellent."

"Historical and stately hotel. Only complaint is that the wifi signal in the room was too weak to utilize. Otherwise great!"
