“Very nice for price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2014 via mobile

This hotel is a great value. The hotel is open (not to the outdoors) up the center of the building, so there is a lot of noise from the lobby/ bar area. The bedroom is at the back of the suite, so noise while sleeping is minimal. The suites were spacious and clean. Convenient to have fridge and microwave in room. Complimentary breakfast was delicious with plenty of choices. The pool/hot tub was clean with towels available. The physical location is ideal, within walking distance of many things. We traveled with our 3 young children and had a pleasant experience.

I travelled with my family for the weekend and had a great experience. The condition of the hotel was good, staff very helpful, and breakfast couldn't be any better. The breakfast was also very organized compared to some other Embassy Suites locations I've stayed at.

I truly enjoyed my stay at the Embassy Suites Lakefront. Everyone was so helpful, pleasing, and just plain awesome. One of your employees is a rare and true gem...Ms. Shirley was not only helpful towards me, but she was also helpful to all of the other guests at the hotel. Ms. Shirley has a beautiful heart and spirit, and I look forward to seeing her again in the near future.

There are plenty of quality places to stay in Chicago. The Lakefront Embassy Suites can compete with most just on location, price, cleanliness, helpfulness of staff... When you factor in an amazing complimentary breakfast and the "open bar" reception every night, this hotel will be my Chicago go to from now on.

I spent two nights at the Embassy suites and found the hotel to my liking. The room looked like almost every other Embassy Suites, and could use some minor repairs, for which I knocked a point off. The location is great, close to some decent restaurants and perfect for downtown business. The view out of the room was wonderful, and the atrium is much more spectacular than the usual Embassy Suites as one side is glass.

Just wrapped up 3 nights at the Embassy Suites at a great price. The free breakfast spread is the best I have seen at any hotel. The beds were super comfortable and pillows were perfect. The free drinks/snacks in the evening were a bonus too.

The only noticeable defect in the room was some slightly peeling wallpaper in the bathroom and some degeneration of the wood bathroom door like you see when the door is open on wet rugs/towels for awhile. We also heard a loud kid screaming from the room beside us, but we couldn't control that and it was obvious the parent couldn't either.

The location is ideal, just a short walk to Michigan Ave and Navy Pier. There is an AMC Theatre and bowling alley adjoining, and a large Walgreen store a 1/2 block away.

The value here is amazing for the price we paid.
