Hotel with Charm and CharacterMy stay at the Congress Plaza Hotel was excellent in every way. I checked in in two minutes flat, and the room was lovely -- very clean, comfortable bed.

Great location for Chicago marathonRight near the start and finish lines for the Chicago marathon. Also walking distance to many of the key must see sites.

Great location and very accommodating staff. The single queen bed room was very tiny and awkward. The view was a brick wall. The staff was very accommodating and I was able to upgrade my room to the 2 queen bed room with a wonderful view of the street. Wonderful stay but no amenities.
