We have stayed at Hampton Inn & Suites (Downtown) several times. It is a convenient location . . . probably 25-30 good restaurants within walking distance (6 blocks), Red Line underground nearby, bus to Navy Pier close, bridge across Chicago River about 3 blocks south . . . and our daughter has even been able to find street parking when she has come to pick us up. The hotel has a small, off-street, covered semi-circle for taxis or private cars to pull into for loading and unloading. Also valet parking, but we've never used it. The one drawback is that a Fire Station is across the street, and it seems to get 3-4 calls a night. Some rooms are more susceptible to this than others. Otherwise, rooms are comfortable and clean; breakfast has a pleasant range of options; coffee, tea, and hot chocolate is always available. Our room did not have microwave/refrigerator, but I think some do. For this trip, it didn't matter, but when it does . . . we ask.
I loved everything about our room. We had the Chicago suite and were completely happy with our stay. Kitchen has snacks 24/7 free of charge and an amazing breakfast with delicious fresh fruit and pastries. Feels like you are at someone's home NOT a hotel! Only down side was the train but... Hey that's part of the city experience!
great location, clean and well maintained hotel - complimentary cocktails and breakfast are a big plus, but expect to wait in long lines if there on a busy day - staff was great at keeping things stocked even with a large crowd - the hotel provides earplugs, if sleeping in the bedroom you will need them to manage the city noise, if sleeping in the living room you will need them to manage the lobby noise
Great location to downtown shopping, dining, and entertainment. We walked to Mich Ave to Navy Pier. I would most def stay here again. Price was pretty good. Room had everything we wanted and needed. Highly recommend this hotel.
