“Had just what we needed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2013

We were moving our daughter to college and were driving a long truck with a trailer behind it. Parking in Chicago with a rig this long can be a problem. That is what prompted us to stay in a hotel at Midway Airport...their is ample parking that can accommodate a truck and trailer. Then it came down to which hotel. This Residence In had it all.

1) FREE Parking (most other hotels charged)
2) FREE WiFi
3) FREE breakfast
4) Suites (since we were traveling with 2 college kids that like to stay up later than us old adults)

When I called to make the reservation en-route, the person at the desk remarked it was "cookie night." I told her we would be there in time for cookies. So she promptly offered to set some aside for us. And she did! That is EXCELLENT service.

We were very happy with our stay. The hotel was excellent and had everything we needed. I would definitely stay here again.

We had a great experience at this hotel. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly and the location was great. The room was very clean and the pool was as well. It was also surprisingly quiet at night even though it is not far from the airport. My ONLY suggestion here is that they add on-site parking for people who are flying out of midway, because we did have to drive to another location in the morning to park our vehicle! Otherwise a great stay!

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience at our Residence Inn Chicago/Midway. We appreciate the kinds words about the staff and cleanliness. Also, I wanted to make sure you are aware that we do in fact have on site parking for our airport guests. You can book the convenient Park, Sleep & Fly package which covers your room for the night and parking for up to 2 weeks while you travel. Our 24 hour complimentary shuttle service will take you to and from the airport. Any hotel staff member can assist in making these reservations for you.
Thank you for your business, we hope to have the opportunity to serve you again soon,

I was first hesitant to book this hotel since it was about 8 or 9 miles from downtown areas. But when I saw the daily parking rates at the downtown hotels, I changed my reservation to this hotel. I am very glad for this change. We booked a larger corner suite for 2 nights and wanted to extend for one more night, even though the hotel was sold out, the staff went out of their way to accomodate us in the same room for the 3rd night. This suite is almost like a 2 bedroom suite with a complete privacy between the sleeping areas and with separate access to the bathroom. The suite was cleaned very neatly every day. The food served for breakfast and the evening reception were very nice. The staff are extremely pleasant even offering to clean your table after breakfast and evening social. To see this consistently with the changing staff says something about the quality of training the staff receive and the management here. They guided us about the public transportation CTA train service to downtown ("all you need is the Orange line; dont worry") which saved us a lot of money in parking. We highly recommend this hotel to others.

Warm inviting front reception (even though I didn't check in until 8pm). Large rooms (typical) and no noise inside even though the hotel is near a train switching station.
Free Breakfast (basic - eggs, potatoes, sausage, oatmeal, that waffle thingy and yogurt/cereal stuff)
Free WiFi
2 Restaurants within walking distance (Coaches Bar in the Holiday Inn & TGIFridays)
Pricey even for Chi Town

Thank you for taking the time to write your review based on your experience at the Residence Inn Midway. We are priced in comparison to our sister hotels but provide value because as you mentioned, we do offer complimentary breakfast and wi-fi. Additionly, we host a manager's reception 4x a week as well as provide complimentary parking throughout your stay!

Stayed for 5 nights and like most Residence Inns the entire staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Most everyone at the front desk make you feel like you are the only guest in the hotel. The breakfast buffet is one of the better ones at the Residence Inns. And they have complimentary beer and wine and food from 6-730PM Mon-Thurs. And it's not just finger food or crackers: choices during our stay was meatballs/rice; hamburgers; Mexican. This is so much better than any other Residence Inn we have stayed at (and we travel a lot). Who else gives unlimited free beer and wine daily? The only negatives: we had booked a larger suite, corner room and they changed us out of it before we arrived and did not tell us at check in. However, they went out of their way to remedy the situation. Other negative is the workout room is really small with limited options. There is a free shuttle to/from Midway airport every 20 minutes, but you'll need a car because there is nothing to see/do in the vicinity of the hotel.

Room Tip: All the rooms are of high quality. Can't evaluate the larger suite/corner room because we never...

Green Features: Not up to par with other Marriott hotels or even Residence Inns. There are no recycling bins anywhere (despite the information that is supplied in the room). To recycle you have to bring your stuff to the front desk.

Thank you for your comments and for taking the time to post a review. I am sorry that our fitness facility was small but we pack alot of equipment for cardio and strength training into this. Please provide any additional comments to make this a better facility without increasing the size of the room. I look forward to any additional feedback.

Thank you!

Close to Midway Airport, but quite a distance fro downtown and the Magnificent Mile. Beautiful suites, very clean and quiet. Terrific breakfast (free). Parking and wi-fi also free. Great staff and service. Loved it.

We stayed in this Inn for three nights. I have never been to any motel that has a friendlier staff! The staff...every one that we encountered from the desk clerk to the maid service to the food attendant all tried to give 150%! We have never seen such an effort to please us! Besides that, we had wonderful breakfasts AND a yummy dinner that was provided in the price (available weekdays)..I loved our room. Having the advantage of a kitchen also gave us the advantage of more spaciousness. That was really nice. I will probably not be in Chicago again, but I will definitely become a regular customer of Residence Inns, if they are anywhere nearly as good as the Residence Inn Chicago Midway!

Room Tip: Go to trip advisor. They give great recommendations! That's how we ended up here.
