Comfortable hotel, good for families
I stayed here September 2017 while attending a conference at the nearby Sheraton (they were sold out). Like all Embassy Suites, the room is good-sized, with a separate bedroom and sitting area, which has a sofabed The bed is very comfortable, the sofa is a lot more comfortable than it looks. You can tell that, to keep the room at a moderate pricepoint, they didn't spend much on decorating the room and kept the furnishings to a minimum. That's ok with me - but the accommodations come across as a bit Spartan. The included breakfast is a nice touch. It's fairly basic, but has enough variety for a family. There are good restaurants nearby and the shopping district of Michigan Avenue is just a couple of blocks away. Getting to O'Hare by public transit is easy - a bus on the corner takes you to the blue line. Figure on an hour for the trip. The desk in the sitting room is a good size for work and has a couple of outlets for all the electric devices.
