"Great staff...nice room!"
We stayed at City Suites (me and my 12 year old son) for one night since we were going to a game at Wrigley Field. The staff was REALLY nice and helpful. The room was comfortable, especially the bed. I usually have problems with pillows at hotels being too fluffy, but I was very comfortable at City Suites. The train noise did not bother us. My only […] complaint would be that whomever was staying above us was very noisy both late at night and early in the morning. It did not bother my son, but I am a light sleeper. The parking lot is about a block away, so we left our bags unattended when we arrived and departed in the lobby area and they were fine. The continental breakfast had many options.

I love to stay here. The location is right next to the Belmont stop, lots of places to walk, easy to get a cab to and from, staff are friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Location, Location, Location"
Not fancy, but very clean hotel in a great location. Walk to Wrigley through a safe neighborhood, or catch the EL right outside your door. Great place to stay to see Chicago. It exceeded my expectations.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice place to stay for out a towners"
Great staff. Close to restaurants, wrigley field and the train to get around town.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable part of city"
Loved the old style look and feel of the hotel. Walking distance to Wrigley and lots of interesting places to walk to. Don't miss the free zoo only a bus ride away! Staff very friendly and helpful - booked a queen bed room, son decided to join us and they were able to switch to a "suite" with a sofa bed and TV for him separated by a wall - very nic […] e!

"Great location in Chicago."
This hotel is located right on Belmont street not far from the lake. Although very close to train tracks, our room was extremely quiet. To park, you pull up in front of hotel to unload and register. You then move your car to another location about 1 city block away. Parking is $22 per day. The 2 full bed suite we had was very comfortable. there is a […] charge for wifi and movie channel access. The breakfast was sparse but there are excellent restaurants for breakfast close by. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I chose this hotel out of proximity to a place where I needed to be. I stayed here one night. I did not realize, when I booked this hotel, that it is RIGHT NEXT to the El. My room was close enough to the El I could hear the CTA people on the loudspeaker all night along with the brake noise from the trains. The door to my room had no chain--just the […] regular lock that any member of housekeeping or maintenance could enter with a key. This hotel is also hard to find--I drove by it 3 times before I realized where it was. It's a small, very old neighbrhood hotel. It is close to a lot of unique shopping and Wrigley Field. Also, the front desk staff were very friendly. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Wrigley"
Had a good experience. Friendly staff, easy parking about two blocks away, easy walk to Wrigley Field, plenty of food choices in the area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Wrigley location"
Loved the location with plenty of places to walk to including taverns and eating establishments. Short walk to Wrigley for a night game and felt safe walking back. Very close to train (little loud at times) but didn't need the train this visit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent location literally just steps from the Belmont (red/brown/purple lines) L stop, and in the heart of Sheffield/ Clark/ Belmont/ Halsted area which is a vibrant neighborhood and on the edge of Boystown. The room was clean and comfortable. I did have some noisy neighbors on my floor who woke me up one night although it didn't last long enough […] for me to complain to the front desk. I will stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Wrigley Field and downtown"
Nice old-style hotel. For a double queen we got two adjoining rooms (bedroom w/ flatscreen TV plus room with flatscreen TV, desk, and sofa) and a large bathroom. The hotel's address and its proximity to the Belmont Red Line station are very convenient if you want to explore Belmont and Clarke Avenues, Lincoln Park, Wrigleyville, and sundry points downtown. […] However, I was glad to have a room on the third floor that faced a brick wall away from the street. Otherwise, it might have got a bit tiresome to hear the trains trundling down the tracks a few yards down the road! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Place to Stay and Close to transportation"
I would definately go back again. The staff was friendly and the rooms were well maintained.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent local hotel"
We stayed at the hotel for a short weekend and to go to a Cubs game. The hotel was great. We loved the location and the room was very comfortable. We would recommend the hotel, and plan to go again. It is close to public transporation, and many great restaurants and bars. Also, the staff was very helpfula and friendly. We highly recommend this location […] if you want to get out of the downtown area and experience a Chicago neighborhood. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great spot and great location to bars, shops, and wrigley. Above average hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel doesn't look like much from the outside, but the staff was very friendly and the rooms were very comfortable. Parking is insane, but that's the case anywhere you go in Chicago. The neighborhood is "colorful" and an interesting place to people watch.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Rocky start but happy ending"
When we first arrived, we were told that we could only leave the parking garage 1x/day or would be charged an extra $22 each time we moved our car. Within 15 minutes we got a call from the front desk that they had gotten a pass for us to use a different parking garage that would allow for multiple ins and outs. We felt that that should have been made […] more clear when we booked the reservation. I think these passes are avilable upon request, if you are aware of the policy. The hotel was in a busy part of the city, not far from the lake, but the room was very quiet and very nice. It was clean, comfortable and very convenient to public transportation. The free breakfast offered a variety of donuts, bagels, cereals, yogurts and drinks. We either took our food back to the room or grabbed it for on the go. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and we felt went the extra mile to make sure our visit was what we had hoped for. I would definitely stay here again.

"close to wrigley field and the "L" to get downtown"
Loved it! Very charming and different. Remodeled and renovated but still keeps vintage feel. Staff was extremely helpful with directions and recommendations.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
it was ok.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Had to work to get a nice room but it was worth it"
After we unpacked we realized the dead bolt lock on our room door did not work. We called the front desk and requested a room with a working lock. At first the guy at the desk told us that we had nothing to worry about with the broken lock because the key card lock still worked but we insisted we wanted a working lock. So he moved us to a new room which […] was a smoking room and really stank. We again requested a new room without the smell and with a working lock and we finally got it. So after two moves we were happy but I think that we should have gotten our request for a working lock right away without an argument. The room was very comfortable though the view was of a brick wall. I liked the fact that the room had a ceiling fan which kept it at a good temperature at night though there did not seem to be any way to adjust the temp to make it cooler. It was also nice to have a separate sitting area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Worked Out Pefectly for Us. Staff Was Very Attentive And We Walked To The Train To Get Downtown. Parking Was cheap but Two Blocks From hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good spot for Lakeview area of Chicago"
We stayed here because it was close to our daughter's apartment. It was comfortable. The furnishings, carpets and wallpaper could use some updating. It is a good spot to stay if you want to be near the Brown Line or the Red Line as well as the action on Belmont not far from Wrigley Field.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location at reasonable price"
I was very pleased with the location and comfort of the hotel. The staff is also very friendly. It is a small hotel but quite cozy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is a great spot if you've got a big group/need lots of room. We needed three beds and I was prepared for a tight fit with a roll-away. I was pleasantly surprised to find two spacious rooms, with two double beds and a comfortable pull out couch. Having lived in Chicago for many years, this didn't seem like the most desirable location, but it's quite […] secure (they lock the doors after 9 pm) and they gave us a room away from the train. So, I can't speak to how noisy some of the other rooms were. And it couldn't be more convenient, being steps from the L. All of the staff was very accommodating and friendly as well. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was clean, but very small. Close to the Belmont CTA stop, so could hear the train announcements. TV only got 8 of the 30+ stations. When I reported that to the front desk, they didn't seem to care. It's only selling point to me is that it is close to where my son lives.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location, location, location--and friendliness"
We stayed here because we had tickets to a game at Wrigley Field and it's a half mile walk from the hotel. This hotel reminds me of our favorite tourist hotels in Paris - small but more than adequate. Our room, a king suite, was large and comfortable. Some might be bothered by the noise of the L just a half block away but we loved the convenience of […] having it so close and the noise goes with the territory. The continental breakfast was delicious and there was plenty to go around. In the afternoon a plate of cookies appeared in the lounge area--a nice touch. There is parking offered for $22.50 a night with unlimited in and out. There was nothing not to like and we will be back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Wonderful place to stay"
My bf and I came to early for check in! But tht didn't matter they were more than willing to give us parking and take our bags in advance and have them ready in our rooms. The rooms were so clean and organized slept like a baby! I cute diner across the street for quick meals and breakfast in the morning at the hotel! It's hidden in a building so you […] feel safe. Only 10 mins to the bean and mid Chicago! I loved this hotel and the service. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great trip to Wrigley"
Very impressed with this hotel. Had just spent a few days at the Marriott in Detroit Renaissance and have to say the City Suites was MUCH better. They are right next to the Belmont station on the L and 1/2 a mile from Wrigley. The hotel had a nice historic feel and the neighborhood it's in was very pleasant. Nice walk to Wrigley through the old Chicago […] neighborhood. Very nice staff too. Had a great stay. Highly recommend. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Building old but pretty clean. Bed a little on the soft side. El (subway) stop about 100 feet from front door, and Wrigley Field just a few blocks away. Interesting, diversified neighborhood, but felt safe. Hotel breakfast not much. Hotel parking in a garage around the corner and on the expensive side ($22/day). Room was surprisingly quiet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was small but very clean and comfortable. It was very quiet at night even though next door to train tracks. Front desk clerk was not friendly and appeared to be bothered by any questions asked. Housekeeping was professional and helpful. Great location. We will stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"will stay here again"
Very nice clean rooms with excellent front desk staff. Cheapest mini bar I have ever seen. Steps from the train.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We recently stayed at City Suites for a long weekend and I would definitely stay there again. The building is older but it is maintained nicely and was very clean. The rooms were pretty small but very clean and extremely comfortable. If your room faces the train there is a lot of noise but once the window AC unit is turned on it drowns out all of the […] noise. The location was perfect for us right in the heart of Boys Town conveniently located to lots of restaurants and all of the bars that we were interested in going too and right next to the train which was wonderful. The breakfast was pretty basic but perfect for something quick if you are in a hurry. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was a great surprise! It's about 30 feet from the subway and within walking distance to wrigleyville and Lincoln Park. The rooms were huge and the included breakfast was great. The staff was highly accommodating and nice. It's not a "grand" hotel by any means but it is nice, great location and highly recommended!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Can't beat the comfort & convenience for the price"
Enjoyed the hotel stay... I was seeing a concert around the corner at the Vic Theater. Walking distance to theater. Great area for shopping used bookstores, record shops, vintage clothes. Wonderful array of pubs and restaurants. Red line in walking distance to explore other areas of Chicago.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice staff and very enjoyable stay"
I was there for a game at Wrigley. Short walk to field and alot of nightlife in the area. I will continue to stay at this hotel for all future trips to watch the Cubs.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Charming and conveniently located"
Tip: park in the garage at Belmont & Sheffield; it's very close-by, and cheaper than the hotel parking. The hotel service once we got inside was great, and our room was really cute and clean. I like that you can open the glass blinds in the bathroom window and get some fresh air. It was styled more like a tiny apartment than a hotel room, and felt cozy […] and comfortable. The bed was awesome...my boyfriend and I both slept like the dead. There are dispensers by the sink and in the shower with very decent soap, lotion, shampoo/conditioner and body wash. And this place couldn't be in a more convenient location. Lake View is a a great neighborhood, with tons of shops, bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. Plus it's like 20 feet from the train! I would definitely stay here again, no question :) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was within walking distance to the venue, restaurant and parking. It was comfortable and clean. The desk clerk on our arrival got argumentive with me about parking. I had prepaid parking not associated with the hotel and he did have abit of trouble grasping that fact. Other than that we had an outstanding time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
1. Great location, few steps away from train station, so we can visit downtown very conveniently. It is a main line train station, so you can get anywhere you like. 2. no noise. Even next to train station, we heard nothing.3. Super friendly staffs!! the first night we felt cold so we asked some blankets, next day our room was very very warm. They were […] very kind to help us find our destinations, offered cookies even in the midnight. 4. comfortable room. Our room was big and clean. Sofa was another bed. Also, breakfast was really good, just like home. Free coffee, milk and hot chocolate 24 hours. We certainly will choose this hotel next time. It's perfect! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"My Second Stay"
This was my second stay at the City Suites Hotel. My second because the first stay was so enjoyable. The location was fantastic -- the Belmont Avenue cta train stop is just feet away, as is a bus stop, restaurants are everywhere, and it is north of the more expensive midtown hotels. I look forward to my next trip to Chicago so that I can experience […] again the hospitality and comfort of this very nice place. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I was there for 2 nights. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The room was comfortable and parking was available close by.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Noisy and Hot"
I can't add much that other reviews haven't commented on, except this: In addition to the extreme noise from the El train and our upstairs neighbors that kept us us up all night, our room was about 85 degrees (in the middle of February) and we didn't have access to any temperature controls. It was literally stifling heat, even with the fan on (window […] couldn't be opened because air conditioner was there). The combination of noise and heat made it extremely difficult to sleep. However, like other reviewers, we found the staff kind and helpful. To maximize your comfort, ask for a room on the other side from the El train and expect that it might be a quirky experience.

"Very nice hotel"
We were staying downtown to see a concert, location of the hotel was great, RIGHT off the red line, very convenient. Considering how close to the train tracks, noise was not even a concern. Mini bar prices were SO cheap, that was awesome. Definitely an old hotel and very small rooms, TV channels didn't all come through very well, but I would definitely […] stay here again for an event in the area. Also, the staff were VERY friendly and helpful. Brian at the front desk was very charming as well as the guy setting out breakfast the next day. The continental breakfast was pretty good as well. Overall great hotel! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bang for Your Buck"
It was really the location that sold it, the staff wasn't overly friendly but all in all it was a good time. The parking garage they use is abut a 3 block walk away from the hotel. That would have been helpful to know prior to getting there (lack of research on my part). As other reviewers have noted the train station is right there and it runs through […] the night, though I personally didn't find it distracting. Rooms were super small and the floor creaked above us from the occupant walking around. But it was clean, comfortable and the right price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location and Service"
Great location, right by the red line going to downtown Chicago and the 22 bus line which heads to Wrigley and Andersonville. Ben and Brian were great, and the entire staff was friendly and helpful. Light sleepers may have trouble with the noise from the train, but overall a great experience!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
