Reviewed 20 July 2014

I was nervous when I read some if the other reviews but we had a wonderful experience here. We were looking for a room with a separate living space and kitchenette since we were bringing along my 11 month old son and this place had it all.....and it was huge. The room was very clean we had a decent view of Different buildings in a Chicago and we could walk to great shops, restaurants and the beach. The location was perfect! It was quiet (and our room was by the elevator...couldn't hear a thing) and the bed ax comfortable. The breakfast (which was free) was great, lots of choices. We would absolutely like to stay here again. Oh....one downside, which is common in all city hotels, parking is excruciatingly high! Leave your car at home and you will thoroughly enjoy your stay here!

We made the reservation in internet, expecting two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The rooms we had, the bathrooms we did not. There was just one, the tiniest I have ever seen. The whole establishment was a bit 80s. Nothing wrong with the 80s. The place is well maintained. The staff was second to none. They gave us all the info we needed, and with a big smile. Top points to them! The atmosphere was friendly and the breakfast and evening food standard - if you can stomach all that starch, carbohydrate and high power fructose syryp. I lived on scrambled eggs. We would go back. The Inn is extremely well situated, down the street from The Drake and the Knickerbocker.

Room Tip: Can't say. We faced Walton Place and heard nothing. Great.

This hotel is in a perfect location and the service was impeccable. Gwen at the front desk made us feel welcome the second we arrived. She even went the extra step to give my two sons gummy bears. There was a hotel representative at breakfast greeting all of the guests. The service was what really made our experience special.

Room Tip: We went to a high level so that we didn't hear street noise, it was super quiet.

This hotel was a great value, and I am picky about hotel rooms. It is clean, updated, huge, convenient, and in a great location. Considering the price, it is a great value. This is our go-to hotel when we are in Chicago.

This is my go-to hotel in Chicago. Friendly staff, great location, just a few blocks from Water Tower. I stayed at this location three times during the month of June, so it's nice to have a "home away from home" when I travel. Wonderful value in the Near North Side area of the city.

I travel both for business and with family and find the twain don't often meet. However last time through Chicago my business needs required a certain area so I wound up in this Residence Inn. It's a vertical Residence Inn, as opposed the townhouse style they like in suburban locales. Room was great, spacious and clean. As this level, there's no restaurant per se but they've got the free breakfast bar and snacks for sale. Being in town, all the amenities of the big city are a short stroll away, including Water Place.

Room Tip: Not the place for full range facilities but a great family location.
