Illinois Beach Resort and Conference Center

One Lake Front Dr., Zion 60099 - Map
"Beach Location"
We spent a night at the resort on our way home on vacation. It is a very pretty location on the shore of Lake Michigan. Front desk personnel were friendly and quick. The room was clean and comfortable. We ate at the on-site restaurant and the fish buffet, on Friday, was good. Breakfast was very good. The waitstaff were very gracious, helpful and friendly.

Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers

301 E North Water St, Chicago 60611 - Map
"Good hotel overlooking Chicago River."
Just what you would expect of a Sheraton. Professional staff, some more friendly than others. Check in was efficient and friendly. Left luggage in store as we arrived early and room not ready. Luggage store staff efficient but by no means friendly. Room was good size and spotlessly clean. Housekeeping staff very friendly. One thing to note that if you want to sleep late the housekeeping staff may be trying to enter your room at 9:00am so you need to put your "do not disturb" notice outside your door. Because of where hotel is located there is some traffic noise at night but this tends to reduce about 11:00pm. However, this was not so loud as to be a problem. Useful interactive screen in foyer with lots of information about hotel, what to do in Chicago, flights etc. Navy Pier a 10-15 minute walk away but note there is a bus stop just on the corner to the left as you exit main entrance

"Amazing! "
I was expecting an old hotel where Al Capone used to stay but I found a classy hotel that was renovatd well . We had a wonderful time. The staff are very friendly and attentive. Very well kept and clean rooms. The bed is comfortable just like your bed at home! The location is ideal, it is the entrance to the Magnificient Mile, close to the Water Tower where there is great shopping and good food court if you don't want to dress up or spend too much on dinner. Everything is walking distance to dining, and shopping, It is close to the Hancock Tower.. I will recommend this hotel to family and friends.

Raffaello Hotel

201 E Delaware Pl, Chicago 60611 - Map
"Good location. Decent value. "
Hotel staff were all helpful and cheerful. Room was small but we assumed our reservation was tagged "Expedia" hence the smallest room on the floor. Elevators really are very small - once 4 people on descending elevator refused to let me on. We knew from other reviews and got room on 4th floor. I walked down a few times rather than wait for elevator. Really good location. One block from Michigan Avenue and 5 minute walk to Red Line. Not bothered by Drum Bar as others have reported but likely due to us on 4th floor. It was good for us as a vacation hotel. Decent bed. Bathroom very small and not lady friendly but clean.

Chicago Lake Shore Hotel

4900 S Lake Shore Dr, Chicago 60615 - Map
"Inexpensive but clean"
The room was very simple, but very clean. Furnishings and sheets are worn, towels are very thin, but everything is usable. Bed comfort was okay. Staff was helpful but seemingly very busy. There is no charge for parking, which is a plus in Chicago, and it was near where I needed to go. If you are looking for restaurants, the hotel was very close to the Hyde Park area, which has a number of very good restaurants. Overall, it fulfilled the purpose for which I was in Chicago, and was clean and quiet.

Embassy Suites Chicago Downtown

600 N State St, Chicago 60654 - Map
"Ideal for a break in Chicago "
The Embassy Suites in N State St is well situated, close to the Magnificent Mile and other attractions, it is also one block from the metro so easy to get there from the airport. The hotel is clean and well maintained although the decor is slightly tired but facilities are good. The buffet breakfast was very good and never got too busy in the mornings, It was a big saving over eating out local diners. Another plus point was the manager's reception each evening with free drinks and snacks served for an hour every night. The staff were excellent, always attentive, friendly and helpful. I would be happy to go to the Embassy Suite next time we're in Chicago.
