Best Deal in the South Loop for a Family Stay Posted Sep 5, 2015
If you want to bypass the chain hotels, or the expensive ones in Chicago's South Loop area, the Congress Plaza is a great choice. The lobby throws you back in time a bit (in a good way), and not being over polished gives the hotel and rooms an 'old Chicago' feel. The price is reasonable (although the in-house restaurants a bit over-priced), and the front desk staff is efficiently helpful. I had to extend my stay a day by adding a second reservation under a different name than the first one, and I was able to do so without changing rooms. Thank you!
