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.

Chicago Getaway 2013

This is my third time coming to this hotel. Every time I visit Chicago my friends and family always stay at this hotel. The staff is friendly and very knowledgeable. This is the perfect location. It's right around the corner from the train/ bus station and just minutes from other activities. The complementary breakfast has a variety of delicious foods to choose from and the beds are very comfortable. I will definitely be coming back.

Excellent value accomodation

Very good value although a little out of the way being close to the business district. This meant that the selection of restaurants and bars close to the hotel is limited. The staff were excellent, very helpful and its location close to the railway station made my journeys by train easy. I would definitely stay here again.

Modern, clean, central

Excellent value. Very clean and modern. Good breakfast. Central location to financial district, but a little walk to park, museum, and river locations. Pleasant, helpful staff. Not fancy, but also not priced as a fancy hotel. Our room was as big, comfortable and clean as our friends who were paying twice as much, and it was newer.
