Great staff, but did not sleep first night due to noisy teen neighbors. Staff moved me the next day, which was appreciated.

Great hotel for the price

For the price this hotel is great. Our room had 2 double beds and a hide a bed and there was still plenty of room to move around. It was very clean with nice comforters and plenty of pillows. The bathroom is on the smaller side but very clean and had a wonderful big rainfall type showerhead. The toiletries they provide were very nice. Great shampoo and soaps, but the bottles were on the small side so if traveling with a few people ask for extra. Our room had 2 air conditioners which worked great. We were on the 5th floor and the elevators were fast. I cant say enough about the staff. They were very accommodating. We arrived about 8am after a red eye flight and they let check in to our room because it was ready. Didnt eat in the attached resturant but I did get lots of lattes from Ms. Barb who works the counter there. They have some basic lattes and mochas plus pastries, muffins, Gatorade and monsters just to name a few of several items. Thank you Ms. Barb! Ok the downsides, no freezer in the mini fridge. If your looking for an affordable place to stay this place is it. Clean, great location, and friendly staff Not a bells and whistle hotel but I would rather spend the extra on things to do around Chicago. I was doubtfull at first because of some of the reviews but I would recommend this place and would definitely stay there again.

Hotel was good......

This hotel was good and clean we had no problems at all. It is in a busy area and can be loud at night. It’s close to everything we parked the card and did not see it for two days just because we could walk everywhere. Had a great time in Chicago, we must come back and most likely stay at Best Western again.

Great location near the museums

Pros: The location was fantastic!
Cons: The loud fan in the bathroom.
Location: Right across the street from Grant Park, and several restaurants within easy walking distance.
The location was definitely a great feature, right across the street from Grant Park, and with several bus stops close by. Our room was clean and appeared to have been recently renovated. The toiletries were really nice; they had a pleasant citrus scent and didn't bother my sensitive skin. When planning your trip, make sure to take into account the fact that breakfast isn't included, although there is a restaurant downstairs and a breakfast place next door. We took the train and bus, so I don't know how the parking is. The biggest problem was that there was an extremely loud intake fan constantly on in the bathroom, with no way to turn it off, and we could still hear it with the door closed. It did mean that there was no fog on the mirror, which was nice. I could occasionally smell a very faint moldy odor in the bathroom, which I wonder if the fan is meant to stop. Overall it was a decent value for a 2-night family trip.

Delayed start to long weeken. BW to the rescue!

Pros: Best Western staff were wonderfully accommodating. clean, quiet despite nearby construction. Close to everything I was in Chicago for.
Location: Loved Eleven City Diner. Loved how close to the museums it is.
I had planned to attend a conference workshop in Chicago then spend the weekend with my parents for some sightseeing. They would travel in by train and I would fly from New York and meet them at a hotel near the conference, since conference rate rooms were sold out at the Hilton. I booked a four night stay at Best Western in a double room, just two blocks from my event. I figured it would be tight, but so was my budget and I decided we would manage. Unfortunately the March Nor’easter grounded my flight on Wednesday and I wasn’t able to get another until Friday, effectively canceling my conference experience. I was determined to see my parents anyway so I rebooked for Thursday thinking I had the ability to reschedule my flight to Thursday. No dice. only Friday flights were available. Best Western staff were wonderfully accommodating. I was able to get my father’s name on the reservation so that he could check in Thursday and we wouldn’t not lose the room for the weekend. Also with help from Travelocity, I was able to get a full refund of my original BW booking and rebook at a slightly better rate. The room as I said above was tight. Two double beds in a room built to hold one king. There was some squeezing to get past the first bed into the room as there was maybe a foot of space between the bed and the bathroom wall at the foyer. The bathroom had some peeling paint, but otherwise was clean and well stocked. Nice view of the south end of Grant Park.

Good clean hotel with comfy bed

Good clean hotel, comfy bed. My wife is very picky about clean hotels, and she was happy with this one. My only issue was parking - their parking cost almost as much as the room (~$50). I ended up parking down the street for a much more reasonable price ($21 for 24h).

Unfortunately our parking is a bit more pricey but like you said there is other parking facilities around the area if you wont be needing your vehicle while staying at the hotel. Thank you for your stay and we hope that you will return soon.

Location: with no car I walked, used the el/subway so the location was perfect for my needs.
The staff was very helpful when I had questions. My room was very clean.
