We had an early morning appointment in Chicago...so we left our friends home in the 'burbs and headed to the Residence Inn. First of all, location is phenomenal...a short walk down the street from Drake Hotel on Michigan Ave. Hotel staff is extremely nice. Matt the doorman, Kirsten the front office manager and Pablo the bus driver...all very nice. The...

I was impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness of all of the staff at the Residence Inn. I arrived for a three-day stay a little under the weather as I was recovering from a cold and Dawon at the front desk was extremely kind and made sure I had a quiet room (1209), which even had a view of the...

Cons: The wifi is terrible !! Really slow!!! And if you are in your room you only have wifi in the living room not in the bed. Breakfast was so poor I couldn't believe it. And the gym is too small!! Pros: Complimentary snacks and Location. Definitely not worth 400 usd a night.

The location is excellent when you like shopping. The hotel is nice and the staff is very helpful and friendly. The rooms are big, clean and have everything that you expect in working order. Most annoying for me was the very slow Wi-Fi - even after upgrading to premium. The style of the hotel is very predictable and nothing special.

Made sure we were settled and he took care of parkinge,etc. Rooms have been upgrade.Defiantley recommend this spot.

MY wife and I and our 14 year old son stayed here for the weekend of the Chicago Air Show in August 2016.

We have stayed at this hotel at least 5 times primarily because of the location; it is located off the north end of Michigan Avenue which is a prime location for us. The hotel is clean, linens fresh, products average. It is a bit dated, but it is being remodeled, so there is hope. The staff are pleasant, eager to...

The folks at the door and front desk were absolutely terrific. I was given a corner room suite which was very large and spacious. The decor has been updated but its pretty obvious that it is an old property that has had a makeover. I am pretty picky about mattresses, and prefer a very supportive mattress that is on the...

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
