Congress Plaza Hotel

Congress Plaza Hotel

3.6/5 (2,138 reviews)

The first impression of the Congress Plaza Hotel is, "Wow. This is an amazing looking place." The first floor is all marble, tile mosaics, and crystal. That's where the fairytale starts and ends. The valets were welcoming, but the rest of the staff acted as though they were working for the Ministry ...

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Felix. Room was small but comfortable, with nice view of Chicago. A bit of a walk down to Chicago River and Millennium Park, but interesting things to do in the neighborhood and some fun restaurants nearby. Would recommend to a friend.

Lots of deferred maintenance, coffee available in lobby, asked for extra lamp & coat hangers (there were none). Friendly desk clerks. recommend only to younger people who can overlook much of the degraded look of the property: worn carpets, badly in need of paint, etc.
