Great Value! Great Breakfast! (small pool)

We were greeted kindly by the front desk clerks, who were fairly efficient though a bit harried. They graciously accommodated our request to change from a smokey 'non-smoking' room to an upgraded one. Room and bed were comfortable, with a futon couch that was moderately comfortable for sleeping. Minor criticism - indoor pool was VERY small. OK for small children, but no lap swimming. Breakfast? A step above the typical waffle and pastry routine. They offered fresh fruit, yogurt (and pastries). Additionally, one morning there was also biscuits/gravy, as well as hot oatmeal in a crockpot. The next morning they served hot scrambled eggs, sausage and bacon. The best part? The ladies operating the breakfast room were as kind and accommodating as they could be. Their smiles and warm greetings were enough to bring us back!

Best value for the $

We stayed here as an alternative to the overpriced hotel that our convention was held in. My highlights: Very friendly and helpful staff, a good breakfast and amazing location. This hotel offers a very good value for the price. Walking distance to just about everything you might want to see in downtown Chicago, and a Doorman who will hail you a cab if you aren't up for the exercise. No fridge in the room, but ice makers easily accessible on each floor. Kuerig in the room. Small pool is great for kids.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

You can walk to just about everything from here, and it's 2 blocks from Ogilvie Train Station. A cab ride from here to anything downtown probably won't exceed $6.00

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.

Great location for a family vacation

Everything was great. Could use some scrambled eggs at breakfast. Parking next door is pricey, but par for Chicago. Ditch the car & walk, train, or cab.

Great Location near the loop. We could walk to major shopping areas.

The desk people were friendly. In the morning they helped me route out my destination for the day.

overall great stay

I stayed here with my family (3 adults) for 3 nights/4 days over August 2012. This hotel was perfect for us - great size room (small, but clean and not too compact), perfect location and helpful staff. the price was fair, especially for the location and value of the hotel. We walked everywhere and felt safe in the neighborhood at night. I would definitely stay here again if I am ever in the Chicago area.
