Embassy Suites Chicago - Downtown/Lakefront
2 out of 5

Our stay was very pleasant but did leave much to be desired. The hotel receptionist I felt was rather cool toward me when we arrived. The room itself for a suite left a lot to be desired. Not much of a view n very small compared to other embassy suites hotels I stayed at before. The breakfast was nice however when it came time for cut off I noticed the kitchen staff was rather rude bout closing up. I forgot a drink n went back fora glass of orange juice an was turned away. I was severely disappointed considering the rate for the room i was in was over 600 dollars. I would not stay there again.

I found the rooms very nice, pretty well insulated so you don't hear your neighbors plus there was a complimentary breakfast and evening "reception" of drinks and snacks.

We loved the location, the space of the room and the wonderful cooked to order breakfast. The bedding was great and funiture very nice. The cost of the parking was 49 doolars per day and that forced us to stay only one night. Wish they could make some kind of discount available for 2 or more nights stay. Over all we had a wonderful time. Staff was so nice. Kay

This is a great hotel. Me and my girlfriend stayed here and went to the bulls game. Right next to bus stop, couple minutes to Navy Pier. Would stay again.

Took the family to Chi town over the holidays, expecting everything to be over priced and busy with the hustle and bustle BUT to my pleasant surprise this hotel out did itself. The FREE nightly cocktails and the morning breakfasts were the bomb! I have five kids ( 7 of us total) and we all ate breakfast " the full buffet or cooked to order" (price that out and you understand why this place is a real bargain) both were good and the staff in the kitchen or at the bar were all very pleasant. The towels in the pool area were warm, long enough to wrap yourself with, and so new the cotton smelled as if it had just been picked. My wife and I were happy with the room, a small suite but plenty of room, with sinks everywhere ( 3 kids brushing their teeth at the same time is nice) the towels and bed linens were of very good quality as well. The only gripe I had was that valet parking ended up being very high$$ almost as much per day as what the room cost, and when they brought my Rover back to me, it was still dirty and I could tell it hadn't eaten at any buffet. Needless to say that's parking in any big city. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

It was good to hear English spoken by the servixe help. one problem was that people were upset when they put the elevators out of service for almost a half hour.

I stayed here on christmas night. I absolutely loved the location more than anything. AMC theater and lucky strike was right behind the hotel building which was fantastic for my family. The view was pretty awesome too. Bed was comfortable and the TV's were nice. Decent bathroom and the staff were nice. Free breakfast is another thing my family truly enjoyed. Great food and great time. Parking is quite confusing. I accidentally pulled into the self-parking lot and had a little hassle with them. Self-parking is not part of the hotel. You are more than likely to miss the hotel's valet if you don't pay attention. and self-parking staff was awful. Overall, I'd come stay here again!!

Good location, convenient to everything we wanted to see and do. The free breakfast and manager's reception are a bit of a cattle call, but you get what you pay for. If you want the convenience of downtown on a budget, you can't go wrong.

Really liked the buffet breakfast and evening reception. We had booked a non-smoking room, but were given a smoking room. When I asked to be moved the next day I wasn't guarnteed we would get a nonsmoking room.. They requested we pack all our stuff and put it in storage and see what became available later in the day! The whole floor reeked of smoke as did all our stuff after getting back home. I did feel they could have decorated their hotel more for Christmas. Very few decorations. Loved the city of Chicago though.

It was the quality I expect from the Embassy Suites brand. Staff was helpful, manager's reception had several food options, and a jazz combo that was delightful. The Embassy Suites I have stayed at in D.C. had news channels on during the evening receptions & breakfast-Chicago was music.

But not much else. The breakfast is plentiful but not hot when served -- like bad diner food.

Very nice hotel, courteous staff and great breakfast. However I've stayed in cheaper hotels that were just as nice. Also, $14.95 a day for internet??? You have got to be kidding me!I stay in $80 hotels and get it for free.

The tiles in the bathroom were mildewed, the heating/cooling unit was disabled, the room had a funny smell, and the breakfast very likely gave me intestinal distress. On the up side, the staff working the bar/restaurant on Thanksgiving evening -- all extraordinarily hardworking and aiming to please -- were more professional than my husband and I usually see anywhere. A bit of redemption for this place.

We found this Embassy Suites to be very convenient. Within walking distance to Navy Pier and lots of great restaurants. Other amenities nearby-grocery store, Walgreens, movie theater, bowling alley/billiards. Room quite comfortable. Be aware parking is $49/night.

Very nice hotel and friendly staff. Suite was the perfect set-up for our family. We could close the bedroom door so our two year old could sleep, while we relaxed in the comfortable main area with television, couch, and table. The two vanities were very convenient for getting ready in the morning. Can't beat the complimentary made-to-order breakfast and happy hour!
