The Best Western Grant Park Hotel offers visitors a great downtown location to take in all of Chicago's main attractions.

    FOR A LONG STAY

    For a longer visits to this area of Chicago, the price is hard to beat. Parking is safe, secure and cheap for valet service. Though not in top notch condition, the rooms are comfortable. The staff are friendly and one bell hop exceptionally helpful, almost Sherpa level.

    Chicago!

    I visited Chicago to see the Dallas Mavs vs the Bulls. The Mavs lost, unfortunately but it was a wonderful experience overall. We stayed right on Michigan Avenue which is in the middle of everything. We did quite a bit of walking -parks, stores, restaurants, Navy Pier. It was probably one of my favorite trips ever. The hotel is a little older but lovely. The staff was lovely. Overall, great hotel with great value! You do have to pay for valet, FYI.

    great location

    not impressive from the street, but this is a much smaller and friendlier hotel than many in the same area. the price is right if spending several nights. there is a trader joe's half a block away, and lots of small cafes in the area. oh, for breakfast, yolk is next door and bongo room across the street. the field museum is so close you can't resist looking in. parking is super safe even for the most finicky car lover.

    Great location

    Short pleasant walk to the museum complex which is what we were looking for. .The hotel could use some updating but the price was what attracted us.. The staff was very helpful and pleasant.

    Excellent Location!

    This hotel is the closest hotel to Soldier Field so if you are going to a game or event there, this is where you want to stay! It's also a short walking distance to access the walking/running/biking paths at Lakefront Trail. The hotel has a restaurant on site but it was only open for breakfast when we were there. The hotel is outdated but clean. The staff were friendly & helpful. We were disappointed that the outdoor pool was not open. It appeared to be closed for an extended period of time, not just closed for the season.

    Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

    Walk across Michigan Ave (directly across from the hotel) to access the Riverfront Trail if you are interested in spectacular views. Not as many restaurants in this area but if you are a sports fan, make the short walk to Scouts, this is a pre game hang out for Bears Games. We were rooting for the opposing team but were welcomed by the staff & fans.

    Stayed here because we were attending concert at Soldier Field, couldn't have asked for better location. Great walking paths all the way there. Hotel could use some updating but staff was friendly and hotel worked for what we needed.
