It has a 4 star rating on Hotwire but if you are trying to pick between this and a 3 star, pick the 3 star. Location is OK but not great. It's a 1/2 mile walk to the Green line or the Ogilvie train station and 3/4 mile to the Willis (Sears) Tower. Also you have to cross the interstate on/off ramps to get there. Basically you have to run for it across the on/off ramps since there is no crosswalk light.
The room itself was a little worn and shabby. Bathroom had a sliding door that did not lock.
Maids knocked every morning at 8:30 AM which was not ideal for vacationing. ;) Remember to put out your DND if you don't want to wake up early!
Typical hotel restaurant with $19/person breakfast buffet. I did make note that the guests in front of us at check-in got vouchers for breakfast but not hotwire guest. Try Meli Cafe 1/4 mile away and you don't have to cross interstate to get there. :)
The staff was helpful and friendly.
I would not stay here again. It's not what I would expect from a Crowne Plaza.
