"Location, Location, Location"
We stayed here with our 2 boys for a "pre- Christmas" downtown getaway. Location was perfect! We walked to Navy Pier, Water Tower, Mag Mile, and State street for dinner. No cabs needed as it was centrally located. Room was decent with 2 double beds and pullout couch for the kids. Pool was very small and super crowded, the chlorine in the pool area was […] overwhelming, and kids eyes were beat red. Breakfast in the morning was good, but you should get there either very early or very late as we got there in the middle of breakfast hours and waited 30 minuted in the buffet line, and had to wait another 10 minutes for a table to open up. Overall its a nice hotel for the money. I would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A perfect hotel for a weekend trip from the Burbs"
My wife and I came into Chicago from the suburbs to enjoy a couple's weekend away.... The hotel room was very spacious and we enjoyed the Manager's reception before we went out to dinner. The made-to-order breakfast the next day was good and just what we needed before we headed back out to the suburbs... I would definitely recommend this hotel to my […] friends.

"Overall a good stay"
The hotel is in a good location, a few blocks from MMile. Staff was friendly. Had to wait for our room to be ready, though. Some of the features of the room didn't work (an outlet at the table, a lamp switch). Overall was a good stay. Enjoyed the suite with two separate rooms and two separate TVs, worked well for our family.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pool area can use some TLC."
The hotel was nice and in a great area. The issues we had were that the room had no toiletries and my husband said things did not look completely wiped down. The bigger issue we had was the pool area. I understand that after a whole day of people in the pool it may not look as clear. However, my husband and niece woke up at 6am to go in and it was still […] the same way. The hot tub was worse there was discoloration in the foam that was floating around in the evening and was still there in the am. I would have thought someone would have came and checked on or cleaned it overnight. We had to call the front desk to notify them. The pool area was one of the main reasons we decided to go and stay the night so it was very disappointing that it was in that condition. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Family weekend getaway"
Enjoyable stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"It was good..."
My stay was great, however, there were an extreme amount of children running amuck in the lobby, halls and pool area. I do realize that families travel but have a handle on your kids. Also the breakfast was great except the for the LONG line. Maybe on wknds Embassy Suites could have 2 lines for the hot food station. Other than that, I enjoyed my time […] there.

"Girls Annual Christmas Shopping Trip"
This is about the 3rd time my friend and I have stayed at the Embassy Suites and it has always been great. The only complaint I might have is the cost of parking and we wish it was a little closer to Michigan Ave. and State St. Other than that we are very happy with the hotel overall.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel. Enjoyed our stay!"
We enjoyed our stay. The hotel is clean, comfortable and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The only issue we encountered was the happy hour and breakfast lines were really long. The breakfast is also not as good as I've had at most other Embassy Suites.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel ..."
Great hotel, the bedding was somewhat uncomfortable. The condition of the sofa mattress was very deteriorated and the linens were very worn out.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Start with the bathroom!"
Great staff! Great services and food. Not quite up to par with what I've come to expect from the Embassy Suites chain. Very dated. One thing that makes or breaks my opinion on a hotel is the cleanliness/condition of the bathroom. When caulk on the tub has mold and is pealing, I'm turned off!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great overnight stay in downtown Chicago"
Very nice accommodations. The access from self-parking is through an attached garage, but it's a very circuitous route to get from the parking garage up two sets of elevators to your rooms...so, make sure your luggage is on wheels. There were two inaccuracies about the booking information. The hotel check-out is 11:00 a.m, not noon, as advertised. When […] I pointed it out to the hotel staff, though, they honored the noon check-out. The self-parking was $39, not $34. A minor difference, but it's good to have the details listed correctly, so you know what to expect. Nice breakfast and snack time at night, as well as a nice pool. Elevators have a great view of downtown - super fun for the kids. Family-friendly staff. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We have stayed at this hotel before and really enjoy staying there, it is close to Michigan Ave and a nice walk to the Navy Pier. They have a fabulous full breakfast every morning and the evening coctail hour is a really nice touch. The service has always been great here, you get your luggage to your room quickly. The only negative is the cost of the […] valet parking but I think it is comparable to the other hotes Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice hotel with great views"
Great place to stay. Nice staff, big rooms, comfortable space. I highly suggest a corner king suite. My only suggestion would be to change the name of the hotel by dropping the 'Downtown' designation as there is already an ES 'Downtown'. It can cause confusion.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We have two handicap children and the hotel staff was extremely helpful, friendly, and kind! The breakfast was the best we have ever had in a hotel. So pleased! The staff always seemed pleased to be there!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel, smallish rooms"
Great place to stay. You can't beat the free breakfast (which is fully loaded) and the free daily happy hours that come along with the room. Especially for larger families this provides quite a payback compared with having to pay for breakfast every morning, which adds up. The rooms are a little small compared to other Embassy Suites I've stayed in. […] When I booked the room it said it could sleep 7, but that means 2 people each on a double bed, 2 people on a pull out couch and then somebody on a cot. For 7 guys, that's a bit tight. But, overall, this is a great place to stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Our confirmation said the room was guaranteed but when we showed up at the hotel, no rooms were available. So we had to book a hotel on our own. Therefore, the experience should get a 0.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cocktail hour was the highlight!!"

"Good location and attentive front desk"
Great location, attentive front desk, and clean room. Worked great for a two-night stay. One small issue - undercooked potatoes at the breakfast buffet. They should be cooked and crisy folks, not white and raw. Other than this minor issue, no problems.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Fun downtown family hotel"
family trip to chicago was fun. Loved the downtown but hotel was still quite a walk from anything you can get the chicago citypass. Little kids under 10 hated the walk (hint:)) that was expected though. Citypass is the way to go, there are buses and trains close if you want. Hotel had a great breakfast and snacks in the evening. Kids loved the pool. […] No free wifi, but att has a wifi network there if you have att. The parking for the hotel is actually city parking located on either side of the hotel and it was quite pricey $39/day but thats norm for city parking. Overall i liked it but kids didnt like the walking. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Two stays, one much better than than the other"
Overall a good place to stay. Nice property, super nice people. There were a couple of small issues that keep me from rating higher. I spend two separte nights (two reservations) Monday night and Wednesday night. The first night I arrived to my room and the carpet in front of the sink was soaked, probably a leak or something. They gave me another room […] and everything was fine after that. When I checked in again on Wednesday night, they didn't have the room I had reserved available (king bed) so they gave me another room with two double beds. This time I didn't get free wi-fi and some of the other amenities I got Monday night. The room was also not as clean. There was Hair & tissue in the toilet bowl, which I simply flushed away, but really? There was also hair in the shower, so obviously this room didn't get well cleaned after the last guests left. I was so tired, I let it go, and I also believe this was a fluke, but it happened, so there it is. I would stay here again, but I would make sure I get a King bed in one of the 'premium' floors with Wi-Fi included and Keurig coffee maker in the room. Otherwise, not worth the price. Self parking was steep at almost $40, but this is downtown Chicago, and there's direct access from the garage to the hotel so it's acceptable. Valet with in & out privileges was over $50. Nah.. You're better off walking in Downtown anyway and you're only a few blocks from Navy Pier, NBC building, and the Magnificent Mile. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and served our purposes well."
Our visit to Chicago was our of necessity. We were able to get a lot accomplished in the short visit and much of it was do the this hotel's accommodations. Thank you all for your excellent service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"No call back from Manager- Unprofessional!"
We had an issue with a conference the hotel was hosting that drew protestors. If we had known a controversial conference was being held at the hotel we would have stayed elsewhere. When I brought the issue up with the front desk the assured me a manager would call me back. After a day out in the city and returning from a baseball game, we thought our […] 2 hours we allotted would be enough to unwind and make our dinner reservations we made to entertain inventors, but it took 2 hours to get into the hotel since every entrance was blocked by protestors in wheelchairs. Hotel staff told us we needed to wait for police to arrive to make room for us to enter. When police took a while to respond I tried to reason with a protestor to let us in and to let others in who were trying to get to their children without any help from the hotel staff. The whole issue could have been avoided it they planned and organized better with the protestors. Once in we were only offered a 8 floor stairwell to get out but could not be promised access back in until the police arrived. And I have still not received a call back from the hotel manager!
