I don’t know if the error came from you all or the hotel, but I booked a king size bed suite and when I entered the room I discovered it had two full double beds. I notified front desk and was told that there was nothing that could be done because they didn’t have anymore king beds available. This situation caused my visit to be very uncomfortable. My partner in I couldn’t enjoy the visit because the beds were really small and I couldn’t do anything about it

Good Location... no internet since we booked thru Travelocity, dark shower area, less than friendly reception area people. Our TV was more off than on.

Overall a good experience. The staff was excellent! The bed could have been a bit more comfortable for the price we paid to stay. Be aware if you book through Travelocity, you lose any Hilton Honors points you could have accumulated and will have to pay for wifi. I did not discover this until after I had booked. The hotel staff promised to adjust my wifi price upon telling them that I was an Honor's member, but was bummed about not getting my Honor's points and I was with a sports group there for the weekend. When my invoice was printed, it wasn't taken off. But upon request, it was adjusted.

Nice hotel in Chitown

We always like the Embassy Suite for our family stays. This one is a nice hotel in a great location. Highly recommend using Spot Hero for parking in one of the many garages close to hotel.

Great location, price and value for the area.

Pros: Location
Cons: Use real eggs for breakfast.
Location: Less than one block fro "L" subway station, lots of restaurants nearby, grocery store across the street, good access point to any downtown tourist.
I stayed while taking a class in Chicago. I picked this location due to it's very close proximity to the "L" train, the price (which was cheaper than most downtown Chicago hotels) and the free breakfast. Parking is not free, but can be found right across the street.

Outstanding experience

The hotel is central to many fine restaurants and the theatre experience. The complimentary guest hospitality hour and breakfast were wonderful. The hotel was very nice and the staff beyond friendly. The room was perfect. My wife and I will definitely tell others about our experience and have made this hotel our preferred site for Chicago overnights.
