Great hotel for the price! Parking was cheaper than the hotel we stayed in after this one ($43/day). The hotel offers double size beds and the rooms area bit small. Location was great as well! Staff very friendly!

Utilized the Crowne Plaza Metro for the second time for out of town wedding guests. Another success! Great location and great service! The sales department provided a block of rooms at a very nice rate for downtown Chicago. Planning, reservations, and execution was flawless thanks to a great staff.

Hotel was comfortable. High rise which can give you pretty good view if you are on a higher floor. 10 min walk to the downtown. Have good connectivity via Bus. It was a bit annoying that parking is not provided and cost quite a lot to park the car. This was a big turn off.

The best thing about this hotel is it is one of very few options west of the Kennedy in Greektown/West Loop. Despite the seperation by the highway, good access to CBD and loop as well as the emerging west side.

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights for business purposes. I was overall not impressed. Yes, it had a comfortable enough bed, shower, bathroom and was in a convenient location but it could do with some serious upgrades. The bathroom has absolutely no counter space to get ready.

Stayed 3 weekends over the past 2 months. Very noisy hotel, right close to the freeway and with rooms very poorly insulated (coupled with a "not refined" clientele with tendency to be poorly behaved, forget about a good night sleep).

We stayed over one night in this Crowne Plaza on West Madison St in Chicago. The front door staff was quick and friendly. Only valet parking is provided on site at $46 per day.
