3/10
Fair - clean, but no a/c

Remember way back when businesses hung signs out front that read “Air Conditioned” in order to lure customers? Well, apparently, the wealthy owners of Club Quarters were never impressed by such extravagant frivolities as cold, conditioned air. However, someone should be credited with the training given the front desk personnel in explaining to guests, politely, “Sir, but your room is cool” or “we turn the A/C off for the entire building at 8:00 p.m.” and, my favorite, “we'll be glad to deliver another fan up to your room to blow the air around.”

Before arriving at CQ, we called ahead and requested a sofa bed for our “suite.” We were assigned a room with a chair, no sofa. The staff happily accommodated our request to move, so that our children would not have to sleep on the floor. And, our new room did have a sofa bed. The kids didn't seem to mind that the bed, when extended, completely blocked passage from the main bed to the remainder of the room. My wife and I had to walk on top of the sofa mattress / bed, dodge our children's legs, and bed springs in order to brush our teeth after the children were tucked away.

As for our bed, there must be some health benefit to my head being down lower 2 to 3 inches than my feet - though I didn't ask the front desk to explain that part to me. At first, the well worn mattress seemed bumpy, but I began to think of it as “camping out” - something that I missed out on as a child.

The microwave, refrigerator and closet were a real plus. Our view was of the side of a building that was dark, dirty, brown, and right across the alley. The people inside did not appear to be sweating. I was envious. Our windows would not open. Believe me, I examined every square millimeter for a latch of some sort.

The corridors to the rooms reminded me of those corn field mazes at Halloween: narrow, with many turns. Fortunately, someone thought to place room number signs on the walls. And on the doors. Costly, but worth it.

The hotel was a great location for our purposes: being tourists. Clean. Hot water. Cheap compared to other places we considered.

It was very clean and in an area of town that I felt
very safe in. Public transportation was very convenient.
I would stay there anytime I got a chance.

My wife and I had a great vacation in Chicago and selected the Club Quarters Central Loop due to the proximity to the Museum of Art. We were pleasantly surprised by the clean, recently remodeled and modern room. We will stay their again due to it's convenient location and nice rooms.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Club Quarters Central Loop Hotel

Would not recommend this hotel

from ahb505
The location was excellent however, I found the staff to be unhelpful and unfriendly. The water pressure in the shower was so low....the entire wknd. Also, I had to pay 40 US for 36 hrs of parking!

Decent business room

from Migizi
Semi-small room, clean, walls are THIN. Clean, sparsely appointed, and very spartan in every respect. All business. Need better sound insulation.

No accommodation of Typical Hotel Requests To Many Travelers

from Louisville40204
Two key things to keep in mind before staying here: Checkout time is @NOON and the ONLY complimentary extension is up to 12:30 and get this: if the guest hasn't departed by EXACTLY 12:30 (sounds more like a car rental doesn't it?), there is an automatic $25 late checkout fee. Do you know of ANY other hotel that is so unaccommodating in this regard? Never experienced it myself.KEY ISSUE #2: If you plan to store bags with the hotel, the staff WILL NOT accept LAPTOPS to store. The reply I received was that they did not carry the liability coverage to allow that. Once again, have you EVER heard of a hotel that would not store laptops....or any bag you requjested stored for that matter. Once again, GUEST BEWARE!!Another piece of advice: DO NOT PAY more than the mid 60's for this hotel when you book it, as it is NOT worth it. If bidding on Priceline, it is listed as a 3-star in the CENTRAL LOOP area. If booking on the weeeknd, this will typically be the hotel you get with them in that area.ADVICE: If you plan to bid in this area (CENTRAL LOOP), bid for a FOUR STAR (that has a pool), bid no more than $75, and you'll most likely end up @ The Palmer House (Hilton) on Monroe (very nice and EXTREMELY ACCOMMODATING HOTEL). You'll be glad you did and it is FAR SUPERIOR to Club Quarters and MUCH MORE CENTRALLY located.One final piece of advice to the traveler: the hotel (CLUB QUARTERS) itself is NOT the place to stay if you are planning on shopping on Michigan Avenue. It is located in the business district, making shopping a considerable distance from it. Once again, if staying in this area, you would be much better served @The Palmer House Hilton on Monroe....they'll also graciously store your laptop AND allow a late checkout with NO problems or fees. :-)I hope this helps....happyp traveling!

Nice hotel for weekend stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
My friend and I stayed there for a weekend in early April. The price was good and the hotel was in such a great area. We were within walking distance to almost everything and the free trolly was right down the block. If I'm ever in Chicago again I would consider staying there again.

d pay more for something nicer

from A TripAdvisor Member
Got room on priceline-$80 ended up $100+.Room was very small, clean but the queen bed was smaller than a full-size bed-good location but we would pay a few more bucks for something nicer.

A Nice Hotel for Business People

from A TripAdvisor Member
We booked the Club Quarters on W Adams St through Priceline and stayed one night in mid October (the Chicago Marathon weekend). When we got the confirmation number a month before the visit, we called and requested a room with 2 doublebeds and they agreed. However they refused to give it to us when we got there and asked for $50 more if we wanted one. I guess they were anticipating more walk-ins to drive up the revenue.

Hotel itself was very nice. It's about a 10 min walk to the Art Institute Museum. Subway and bus stops are within walking distance.
Room was good but very small. Working area was nice with a world globe on a wood desk. The bathroom had an extraordinarily narrow counter. The hotel has a club room on the ground floor where they had coffee and ice tea. There are two computers with internet access, a TV and comfortable sofa. Another feature is that you need a room card/key to get the elevator to move.

Parking: they have some discounted rate at a garage one or two blocks away. ($16 overnight) You need to ask the front desk for details.

Overall, it's a nice hotel for business people or couples. But they should keep their promise to the customers.

AWEsome hotel!

from A TripAdvisor Member
What a great room! Beautiful decor, great view! Loved the big desk and the proximity to the subway. The bar in the hotel was great, always full of people. The Club room downstairs was awesome, and I loved the fact that I could go there and check my email. I will try to stay there again nextime!

Club Quarters was terrific with one exception...

from A TripAdvisor Member
I booked the best internet rate deal in the South Loop through Expedia (?) - where you can't see the where until it's paid for. My initial regret came from reading reviews that spoke of tiny rooms and little beds. With a 6'5" spouse who possesses a cranky case of hotel room claustrophobia, it sounded like a recipe for disaster. I called ahead to request a king-size bed, only to find that there are very few in the hotel and no guarantee of getting one. So I prepared my husband for spending 99% of his time outside and hoped for the best. End result? He LOVED the room because of the business-friendly set up ---- great desk, ample room to work, phone, lamp, wireless Internet ready- perfect for his work-on-the-road needs. And the shower was amazingly roomy. The hotel has a really comfortable lounge area just off the lobby with several computers w/ wireless Internet, fireplace, TV, newspapers, coffee etc. So - the exception to our instant satisfaction was a ongoing failure of the wireless Internet system (because I had work product to finish and e-mail) until the very last day. All in all, a minor challenge to overcome and the hotel is one we look forward to enjoying in the future. By the way, there are several street parking spaces in front of the hotel available for free overnight parking (7 pm - 6 am) if you're willing to get up and out early enough to avoid being towed. That was an great convenience and a big money-saver ($24 overnight parking, three blocks away).

Great hotel for marathon weekend

from TaraR
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Club Quarters on W Adams St for 3 nights this past weekend for the Chicago Marathon. We were very pleased with the hotel for the $99/night price we paid. Hotel is about a 10 min walk from the start/finish in Grant Park. Everything else we wanted to see was easily within walking distance OR we could hop on the subway to get there. Room was good. The only complaint we had was the pillows were uncomfortable. There was free internet access in the Hotel lobby and a nice pub next door to catch the Cubs games! I recommend this hotel.

Club Quarters is great for business travellers

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed at the Club Quarters Central Loop (not to be confused with Club Quarters Wacker/Michigan) on business. I found it to be more than satisfactory. The front desk service was excellent - efficient, friendly, and helpful. Jason at the front desk is great. He helped to get my wireless connection working. This is a very good business hotel in Chicago, especially for the price. The free high-speed wireless is a huge plus. The place is secure and very clean. The rooms are on the small side, but definitely adequate. No bathtubs, but the large shower was sufficient. Good water pressure and temperature. Beds were fine.
Nice work area with desktop power, phone, and network plugs. Free coffee. Additional service items, like iron/ironing board, extra toiletries, etc. are available in self-service closets on each floor, which I found to be very convenient - more convenient than having things sent up.There's a pretty good pub attached to the hotel. Food is decent, and lots of good beers on tap. This is nice because there's not much else going on in the area at night. It's a good place to relax at the bar.Overall, I would definitely stay here again when in town for business, and I would recommend it. Location is great if you have business in the Loop. The blue line is a block away, so you can take the L in right from the airport. But for tourists, this probably isn't the best area for you. It's in the middle of the Loop, not much sightseeing around, and the area shuts down at night.

Top Local Tips for Chicago

Chicago Public Transport Rocks! Forego using a Taxi unless absolutely necessary. Chicago has top notch public transport at a reasonable price. They have single day unlimited tickets for $5, 2 day tickets for $7 and 3 day unlimited tickets for $12. They are good on all busses, subways, and El's. Between the three, you can get ANYWHERE in the city. The bus stops and subways are easy to find. Each stop has listed a map, the route numbers, and an over view of the route. The el train also has the timetables listed. It is quite easy to navigate and the CTA employees are numerous and freindly.

Shopping on State Street Everyone knows about the Magnificient Mile - Michigan Avenue - Shopping but there are a lot of great shops on State Street and they are worthy of a visit. Shopping like Marshall's, Old Navy, The Rack and others provide the bargain hunter with some of the best opportunities around.

Hip brunch The Bongo Room, 1470 North Milwaukee, is not a hipster club hangout, but a great local spot for breakfast and lunch in the "happening" Bucktown/Wicker Park area. Giant plates of imaginative pancake creations or eggs benedict will keep you filled till dinner. Be prepared for a wait on weekends, but totally worth it. Then explore the shopping on the street and neighboring North Damen.
