The Carlton Inn was perfect for our overnight stay. We needed a pet friendly hotel near Midway for the night before our flight. Somewhere that would accommodate us and our 2 small dogs (Maltese). The room was very very comfortable and had everything we needed. The staff were consistently wonderful. I've travelled the globe extensively on business and can honestly say that all of the the staff we interacted with at the Carlton were as friendly, helpful and accommodating as any 5 star hotel I've stayed in. The Carlton is a 2-star hotel, but the room was very clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was a surprise because, though simple was quite varied and good. We took the shuttle to Midway. We had 5 suitcases plus the 2 dogs and their in-cabin carriers. The driver picked us up outside our room and was helpful with the bags. The Carlton was perfect for our needs and perfect for our night before our flight.
Sheraton is located in walking distance of everything on Michigan Avenue. The room was very clean and also had a pull out bed for a single person. …
The room was pretty good. The parking situation was awful. The parking is really off site about 2 blocks away. There are 2 ways to get to the parking, down a weird and scary alley way with a few clubs or walk around 2 blocks away. Needless to say it was a bit cold and we were freezing along with my small daughter. If you have kids do not stay here...it is club city outside the hotel and loud club goers who stay in the hotel. This hotel is a definite place to stay if you want to party downtown but not for relaxing with family. The front desk personnel and valet personnel were pretty friendly. Valet parking should be free here but it is 62.00. If I had stayed alone with my daughter I would have been forced to pay for valet parking because there is no way I would have walked that far to park and walk back alone from the parking to the hotel. Very loud....so loud the room has a little sign by the bed with free earplugs.
I was only here for a couple of hours on lay-a-way, waiting for the shuttle bus to take me to O'hare Airport. The lobby was well maintained and clean. There are 2 bathrooms in the lobby, one near the restaurant and the other, just passed over the reception area, right by those conference halls. they also have ATM machines here. The bus shuttle driver will come over and announce if they are going to leave to the airport. Nice hotel to catch up with emails, phone call, etc.
A great new historic hotel in downtown Chicago. The hotel us beautiful and has a really fun vibe with lots of neat historical preservation. The rooms are small but fine for the 2 of us traveling together. Be sure to try brunch at Cindy's. It's fabulous!
An amazing Chicago experience. Visit around the holidays for amazing decor and a gingerbread village that will put you in the Christmas spirit. Great service, fun old school bars with classic drinks. As they say, the real Chicago.
Pros: - awesome steam shower - super comfortable king size bed - quiet with no television or phone (perfect to get away from it all..) - located in a great neighborhood with plenty of shopping/dining to choose from
Very swanky and posh - the price went with it but the stay was great and it is centrally located to attractions. Be prepared to pay a pretty penny for parking (which is true in every downtown)
Not a bad hotel, is in a great area downtown. The service was pretty good even if the rooms were a bit small. The one downside is that they are also a bit expensive for what you are getting.
Historical Chicago hotel.Right on Lake Shore Drive so great views of the lake.Amazing decor inside the restaurants and bar areas.The huge flower centerpieces are exquisite.
We stayed at the Silversmith on a whim for a business trip and were so pleasantly surprised! The hotel is beautiful and the location can't be beat. Highly recommend!
