Great location near the Magnificent Mile... includes a hot breakfast buffet.. not continental with a few items.. a REAL breakfast! Decent indoor pool. Staff is all very friendly and helpful. Love that the bedroom has seperate doors from living area with 2 tvs.. if traveling with children they can watch what they want in the other room! There are also during the week free dinner on certain nights. We've never had that luxury and love the small kitchen with fridge... Late night snacks and leftovers were a plus with the kids! Little walk to grab the Subway to the Aquarium... long walk but not too long... to the Navy Pier or grab the free trolley and ride there.

Very enjoyable stay surprised on evening reception and meal. Room had great view of Chicago and Trump tower breakfast was exceptionalDid not use Valet parking thought $59 was way out of line found a spot 1 block away for $24 on line. We plan a return trip and hope we can get the same $84 a night deal at this hotel

Steve: I am happy to hear that you had an enjoyable experience with us as this is our main goal! We put a lot of thought into our dinner/reception menu and it's great that you took advantage of it. As for parking, it can be a bit tricky in Chicago but it sounds like it all worked out nicely for you!

We have stayed in many Homewood Suites and not been disappointed in any of them. The Chicago Homewood Suites on Grand offers a great location for visiting museums, eating, and having a great time with your family as well as a great place to rest and have your breakfast. Breakfast at the hotels an asset when traveling with children.

I cannot rave enough about my stay at this hotel. From the moment I arrived until the moment I left, it exceeded all expectations. Every single member of staff was so incredibly efficient, knowledgeable, helpful, kind, and provided AMAZING customer service. Especially Amer, one of the door/valet staff! I've never seen a person hail taxis as efficiently as he does. And always so cheerful! In fact, every member of staff I spoke to during my entire stay was extremely pleasant (the hiring manager at this hotel is making great choices).
This hotel is perfectly located on a busy (but surprisingly quiet once in your hotel room) street a couple of blocks from Michigan Ave and SURROUNDED by endless food and shopping. This is in central Chicago, and very lively at all hours of the day and night. I walked around this area for hours by myself, both during the day and at night, and never once felt unsafe or uncomfortable. If this is your first visit to the city or you're a solo traveler who wants to feel "safe" in a city by yourself, this is where you want to stay. During the day there are tourists and business people, and at night there are tourists and locals out for entertainment. I was solo traveling and the concierge and valet were always quick to point me in the right direction or arrange transportation for me (and gave great suggestions on where to head for entertainment/food). The hotel rooms themselves are not particularly special; however, they are suites, so they're nicely sized. Wifi is strong (even in my room on the 17th floor) and free.
I ate the free breakfast in the lobby everyday and there were many options to choose from, all prepared and maintained by hotel staff. This hotel also serves a free evening meal 4 nights per week; I didn't go to this due to other plans, but I'm sure it was quality given my experience with their breakfast.
Truly, the key highlights of staying at this hotel is that you could never ask for a better hotel location in downtown Chicago (especially for the reasonable prices I've seen for these rooms), and you will be hard pressed to find better customer service at any other hotel (or any other business, period). I highly recommend this hotel, and I definitely plan to stay here on my next trip to Chicago!

Room Tip: Higher rooms drown out the sounds of traffic and give great views of downtown

EricaBee,

Thank you for your review of Homewood Suites downtown Chicago. It made me happy to see that we exceeded your expectations during your experience at our hotel. I see that you were able to take advantage of the complimentary breakfast, complimentary internet and the location of the hotel as you explored the city. If it would not be too much of an inconvenience, would you be kind enough to “like” us on facebook? Thank you for your feedback and recommendation, we look forward to hosting you at the hotel the next time you are in town.

Sincerely,

Jason Park

Spacious, apartment like rooms with full fridge (ice machine too), dishwasher, stove top, microwave, and dishes/pots and pans! You really feel like your at a 2nd home! The view of the city is excellent! But all that doesn't compare to the hospitality of the staff here! Kind and courteous are in abundance with everyone that works here. I do have to say that one stands out above the rest. "Amer" hailed a taxi for me every work day, even in the pouring rain, all while I waited in the comfort of the vestibule. Everyone that works here has the same attitude; Which from what I experienced is, Treat every guest like royalty, and they do just that. After 15 days here I can say that when I visit Chicago, this is where I'm staying every time!

Room Tip: Rooms on the same side as the main entrance have a great view, especially the higher rooms.

Our stay in Homewood Suites by Hilton in Chicago Downtown was a very pleasurable experience. Our inquire to be placed in a room with a great view was met. Our 1 bedroom apt. with a living room and kitchenette was really big, clean and furnished very well. Among many advantages of this hotel, it is worth to mention about: great localization (next to Grand station of the red line) and within walking distance to downtown, complimentary breakfast and dinner (4 days a week), complimentary fitness center, a swimming pool and access to a computer with a printer. The staff were very nice and helpful. To find this hotel perfect, I wish that any vegetables were served for breakfast. It was either sweet things or fat (eggs, sausages, beacon), but it was difficult to eat something really healthy for breakfast. I will be happy to stay once again in Homewood Suites and I can recommend this hotel for everybody, including families with children.
