Fantastic Weeekend in the City

The hotel is centerally located close to the Ogillvee Train station. The hotel was very nice and convient. The only down side was the breakfast, which was probably my least favorite continential breakfast from a hotel.

really clean in a great downtown Chicago location.

staff were super friendly, the entire facilities were really clean. I only spent one night there, but I could not have been more satisfied with the cleanliness and how pleasant everyone was there. my only complaint is that you could hear all the street sound from the hotel room.

Great Location, Decent Price, Nice Place to Stay

Not far from the Washington Blue Line stop, and reasonable walking distance to downtown destinations in Chicago. Modern, comfortable accommodations. Refrigerator and microwave in room, free wifi. Pool and workout room, above-average free breakfast, clean rooms, great staff. Perfect for my 3-night stay.

Lacking Sufficient Value

We stayed here for the Chicago marathon weekend. The special event explains the high cost, but the room was odd and lacked sufficient comfort for the price. The space was very tight: chest drawers would slide open on their own (possible the floor or furniture was uneven) and block walking space, plus drawers were 1/2 size of normal drawers in orders to fit in the room; closet was tiny; there was a large desk but hardly any room to turn around-- go figure. Bathroom was spacious though. Breakfast was mediocre and staff either too friendly and talkative or dismissive. We won't repeat this one, although we liked the convenience of the location.

La Quinta for the Marathon

The hotel was pretty much what we expected. Reasonable rates, nicely appointed rooms, the basic "extras" you find in most hotels these days. A pleasant surprise was the location. Located in the heart of the Chicago business district we found the hotel located on the Chicago marathon route at the 12.5 mile mark. Since the marathon was our primary reason for visiting Chicago the location was a bonus. Walk out the front door and view the race. Also, free breakfast was a plus but the weekend menu was disappointing. The weekday breakfast fare was much more main stream. The connected "Noodles" restaurant next door was also a pleasant surprise for a weekend lunch when most of the other business district lunch eateries were closed for the weekend. All in all a pleasant place to stay.
