Hotel is OK for a 1 night stay. Good - price is OK, location is great (very close to Sears/Willis Tower and Millennium Park) Bad - no bar, very thin walls (you can hear everything that's happening on the hall and nearest rooms)

If you've read any of my reviews, you know I'm kind of a hotel snob. I'm brand loyal and like a lot of amenities. I was traveling to Chicago on business and not in charge of accommodations. I was pleasantly surprised by my time at this hotel. The rooms were VERY large for a big city hotel with a lot of work space. The rooms were clean and equipped with modern furnishings. The best feature by far was the staff. From the amazingly happy women working the breakfast buffet to the fun and friendly fr... Read more

Nobody should ever pay more than $140 for a room here. This hotel must thank their great fortune that Chicago hosts some very big trade shows and conferences. That is the case today. We are not even attending the big conference in town, but we still had to pay $350 for a room here. Outrageous. The amount of trash that this hotel produces should be illegal. Everything is disposable. I did not see a real cup, plate, or utensil in the entire place. The knives in the breakfast area are about ... Read more

Just stayed here for business. Hotel was clean and staff was nice. I had a single queen bed room and it was spacious with a large work desk, fridge, microwave and tv. Free WiFi was good and I was able to work without issues. The breakfast was your typical continental breakfast with good choices. This hotel is fairly quiet being in the business district. this also means there isn't much to do close by after 8:00pm. But traffic noise starts early. But I didn't mind since I was there for work and h... Read more

My family and I came to Chicago to attend a trade show and chose to stay here because my mom loves modern convenience hotels and she only gets 1 vacation a year. We stay here almost every year for this convention. Wonderful breakfast that is included. Beautiful rooms and showers. The staff is pinnacle and some of the best staff we have encountered at a hotel. The only downfall was the hot tub was broken for the two nights we stayed and was the sole reason I paid as much as I did because my mom l... Read more

I have stayed in other la Quinta hotels and know it is not 4 Star but thiis was disappointing for a big city. I got a handicap room which was large, that was good, but the bathroom was practically useless. The shower designed for a wheelchair let water flood the bathroom. The controls were very touchy. Lighting over the sink meant shaving by braille. Two aC units were noisy and allowed huge temperature swings. Bed covers were lead weighted it seemed and the mattress left me with a backache every...

I booked this hotel through TripAdvisor and was pleased with the review. But once arriving I realized I should have gotten a better hotel for the price I paid. This hotel is down town and in walking distance from The sears tower ( Willis Tower) which was great since some friends never been to Chicago. The room was small but nice the breakfast and staff was great. there is no free parking, the pool is small. But I was only here for a few days before heading back overseas.

The staff was friendly and polite. Our room was clean and comfortable. The hotel is in a convenient location. They don't have free parking at this location, but there is a parking garage right next door to the hotel that (when we stayed) charges $46 for overnight parking. When we were in the lobby, at least six people went up to the desk and sounded absolutely shocked that they had to pay for parking. Just made me glad that I was able to do a bit of research ahead of time, so the parking situa... Read more

Very nice hotel with excellent rooms. Breakfast is nice and the location is a big plus! Lot of restaurants and small stores around the hotel. Checkin was quick and it's not really a very fancy hotel but it serves the purpose as I had to just walk to Willis everyday. Highly recommend this hotel. Try it.

This is the La Quinta I know. From the hotel amenities to the friendly staff, we were treated like VIPs. My family and I really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We had to go to another nearby newly remodeled hotel the next night due to availability but my daughters quickly reminded me of how much better this La Quinta was. This is my 4th time staying here and won't be the last.

This Hotel is in a great location to all aspects of the downtown area. Close access to public transportation, close enough to most attractions to walk if wanting. Excellent staff, nice rooms, and great breakfast to start your day. We purchased our parking from Spot Hero prior to arrival to save on costly parking expenses. Highly recommend no problems at all. Purchased a three day travel pass and off our group of five couples went.

Our room had a keurig which is an upgrade from traditional coffee machine but we had limited items in the room. Although 4 guests signed in, they provided only one trash can (in the bathroom), one shampoo and 3 bath towels. Our curtains didn't close all the way through resulting in sunlight peering through the window.

When we arrived at about 11:45pm, check-in was smooth, and to my surprise, there was birthday cake waiting!! SO wonderful, and we are so thankful that they went out of their way.

Nice location, but not where I would advise staying if you want rest. You can hear everything through the doors (even though we were at the end of the hallway), and we had especially loud neighbors. We called the front desk three times asking for something to be done about the noise -- the people eventually left until about 3:30 am. When I mentioned the issue at check-out, the staff just said, "it's lollapalooza." Oh, OK...

Good location, beautiful view, pool is small but to be expected when space is so limited in Chicago. Everything went smoothly with check in.

This hotel is PERFECT ! The location is really good, walking distance from the train or the main attractions. It is very clean, the breakfast is amazing but little bit crowdy around 8h30, the hotel should add more tables and chairs. The breakfast is served until 9h00 but I would suggest changing for 9h30 or best 10h00. The room is big and clean. You need a key to go in the elevator. Staff is really nice to !

You can tell this hotel was recently updated. Nice bathrooms and spacious rooms. Fantastic location in downtown business district two blocks from Willis Towers. The included breakfast is fantastic and they have several waffle machines and hot and cold foods. My kids couldn't get enough waffles! Only downside is the pool is beyond tiny and the "hot-tub" is hilariously small. No workout room either.

Great location (1 block from the "L"), extremely slow elevators, always crowded in the breakfast area. Always check your in-room coffee maker. Mine still had old water and coffee pod still in the machine. FYI... if you want to find something to eat after 9:00 PM anywhere in the area, good luck with that. You can have an overpriced pizza delivered to you or walk 2 blocks to the 7-11. Those are your only options.
