Hotel is aged and under renovation, but my wife and I had a comfortable 2 day visit while I attended a conference at McCormick Place. Bridge over Lake Shore Drive provides access to walk/bike trail along the lake. Near park and close to restaurant next door and others on 53rd Street and nearby. Located in middle/professional class neighborhood with high rise apartment buildings which overlook the lake. Walking distance to bus and train lines, but I took a taxi to McCormick Place (about $10 + tip).
We stayed one night downtown for an event for our daughters sorority. It was a pleasant surprise to find that the hotel was connected to the McCormick Center and the Auto Show was going on. We extended our next day and spent a few hours their. They have a nice workout facility and lap pool. The room was cozy and clean. The traffic was really bad getting to the hotel but once there we did not need to go anywhere else. Leaving the hotel was alot easier.
2nd time going to chicago. 1st time I stayed at a different hotel much pricier and actually worse in my opinion. I had read so many mixed reviews on Chinatown Hotel but glad took the chance. My bf and I loved everything about it. It's very cheap and yes not the best of rooms they are a little smaller but for pretty much just sleeping it was perfectly great. Parking is simple enough- you either get lucky and park on the street like we did otherwise right around the corner is $14 parking for 24 hrs. Close to transportation, lots of great shops and food in Chinatown. You won't know where to pick. We already plan to continue coming here for future visits.
This is my second time choosing to stay in this hotel. We are visiting our son at U Chicago and found this hotel the best choice. The hotel staff are very friendly. Rooms are clean. Internet is great. Breakfast is nice. All fantastic!
Great location! Spectacular floor to ceiling views. Walking distance to Grant Park, Roosevelt station a few blocks away, bus stop at front door. Great neighborhood restaurants, Go Grocer entrance in the lobby, Trader Joes, Jewel-Osco, Walgreens,Target, and movie theater all within walking distance. Safe neighborhood, secure building. 3 bedroom/ 2 1/2 bath, plenty of room for six adults. Love having a full kitchen and laundry room for a week long stay. 7th floor has pretty decent workout room, vending machines, outdoor pool and grills. We stayed for 7 days and this location was perfect for everything we wanted to do. I highly recommend getting a multi day metro card. We rarely waited longer than 10 minutes for a bus outside the front door. Taxis always available as well. The people we rented from provided great information about the apartment before we arrived and were good about responding to phone calls or email questions while we were there.
"convienent for shopping, dining, and transportatio"
I did enjoy my room however i did not get the room I booked. The room had one bed when I precisely ordered two. They did not have my reservation so they put me in the room with one bed. The room was ice cold and the bathroom was freezing and never got warm. when they found my reservation they went up on the price of the same room. Do you think that was fair?
