Embassy Suites by Hilton Chicago Downtown Magnificent Mile
Ranked #80 of 192 Hotels in Chicago
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 June 2014

This was a great hotel at a really good price for downtown Chicago. It was very convenient and the room, breakfast and managers reception were great. I only had two complaints about this hotel, one was the room had that stale smell (sort of like cigarette smoke) and didn't have very good ventilation and the second was that I stayed there for 5 days and instead of putting my room next to other longer staying patrons, I was in a room that had revolving people on both sides all week. This was really difficult as they didn't seem to care what time it was and how much noise they were making at odd hours. For the hotel, it would be great if you could try to put people staying the full week in a section of the hotel so this is less likely.

I stayed one night for a conference. Room was a suite with fridge and microwave. Hotel bar open until 11 PM. The closet was a little small but for one night it was fine. Lots of restaurants and nightlife nearby. Close to Lake Michigan and the Chicago River. Everything was clean and orderly. Just what I expect from a hotel.

Room Tip: Try and get a lake view if you can. Too many other buildings nearby to get a river view.

I always stay at the Embassy Suites in Downtown Chicago for my visits to Chicago. This time my room was dirty and run down. The front desk was not overly concerned with the dried food left on our couch or the hanging/broken curtain in our bedroom or the hanging shower curtain. There was black mold around areas of the bathtub.

As Chicago suburbanites, we often stay downtown for weekend adventures. We chose this hotel for the second time because of the location. It happened to be Memorial Day weekend, so the hotel was packed (understandable). However, the open floor plan that Embassy Suites tend to have seemed to amplify the noise of the crowds. The facility did not seem equipped to handle the increased number of customers, especially at breakfast and the manager's reception. The interior of the hotel is nice, and the rooms are fairly updated.

Stayed: May 2014

Was VERY pleased with the hotel for the price, free reception and free breakfast was the best I have ever had (for free). I have stayed at a lot of hotels for both business and personal travel and would definitely recommend this hotel.

We stayed here one evening while in town for the bluesfest. We have stayed at other Embassy Suites, and this one met our high expectations. Valets were great, retrieving our car a couple of times to unload luggage left behind and I think the text-to-retrieve the car system is amazing.

Room was clean, staff was friendly. Shower was awesome. We will continue to frequent Embassy Suites as they just continue to do a great job, regardless of city.

We stayed here for a week with the family as a city-summer vacation. The hotel was located within walking distance of many attractions - Navy Pier, harbour cruise, Michigan Ave - and close to transit.

Good variety for breakfast every morning. It was busy in the omelette line, but all other food was obtained quickly!

The room was quiet, with a fantastic view of the lake.

Well worth the price! We'd definitely stay here again.
