Great place to stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed just before Christmas 2004. Great value with senior rate, very clean, free breakfast too! The mini kitchen was good for snacks and coffee. We didn't use the pool it was being redone. No noise problems with fire station nearby, we couldn't have asked for more.

great experience

Nice rooms, great price. Can't beat it. I will stay here when I want to stay on that side of the river.

Excellent value!

We stayed at this hotel December 11, 2004. It was in a good location only about 4 blocks west of Michigan Avenue (and only about 3 blocks from the back entrance to Nordstroms). We were told the rooms had been redecorated about a year ago. Our room was very welcoming and comfortable. We liked the fact that they enclosed the bathroom sink area with lower cabinets that provided for extra enclosed storage. The staff was very friendly and helpful and ready to attend to any of our needs. Breakfast was good and the eating area bright with many windows. We had booked early on their website so the price was right for Chicago (during this holiday season) and we plan on staying there again.

Loved It!

Wonderful hotel! Polite Staff, Clean Rooms, Free HOT breakfast in the morning including eggs, and sausage biscuits. Pool looked lovely, but didn't have a chance to use it. My room was on ly 9'th floor, and it only took 15 seconds in the elevator from the library. My only complaint is that when we called the front desk, (ext. 0 ), no one answered after atleast 20 rings. Even though it was clearly stated to call that extension any time. But, that was not a big issue! Beware of the gift shop, $2.00 for a 5 pack of gum! I highly recommend this hotel for all people coming to the downtown Chicago Area! It was a lot of fun!

Hampton Inn Great Choice

from deborah4916
We arrived 5 hours prior to check-in time so that we could go to an early Cubs game and leave our car at the hotel. It worked out perfectly...the bellman was courteous, the desk staff allowed us to secure our bags in a safe room, and we took off to the game. The location is great as the entrance to the subway is only a block and a half away. We enjoyed the game, returned later in the afternoon, and had our bags brought up to the room. The room was great...a two room king suite, two TV's, large bathroom, on the 5th floor overlooking the indoor pool and not the street, so it was very quiet, too. The spacious room was clean, had a microwave with a free bag of popcorn, fridge, coffeepot, hairdryer, and safe. The two 11 year old boys traveling with us were able to hook up their X-box game system without a problem. The pay per view movies were a nice touch too. The indoor pool, sauna and whirlpool were on the 2nd floor, and they were very nice too. There were clean towels, and it adjoined the workout room. The hot breakfast the next morning was more than adequate...biscuits and gravy, eggs, toast, bagels, rolls, juice, milk, cereals, etc. All in all, I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Chicago. We were a very short distance from ESPN Zone for the kids, Lou Malnati's pizza on Wells was great, and you could also walk to the Rainforest Cafe. The one and only drawback was a very large tax on our room of over $25 from the City of Chicago. It was not a very welcome surprise but one you should be made aware of.

Great Location, Great Value!!

My husband and daughter and I stayed at this hotel from Aug 1 - 5. I spent a bit of time prior to our trip familiarizing myself with the various areas in downtown Chicago and the hotels in the area. I had a budget I wanted to stick to and chose this hotel because if offered a great AAA rate that was about 1/2 the cost of the other hotels in the surrounding areas. At first I was a bit skeptical. Cheap doesn't always mean good and my only expectation honestly was that it be clean and in a relatively safe part of town since we'd be walking alot.

We arrived on Aug 1 and were impressed by the hotel as we pulled up in the drive way. We were greeted by the valet parking attendant who was very helpful. Parking is $36US per day Valet or $30 per day Self Park. The car is parked around the block in a lot across the street from the House of Blues Hotel. Check in was quick and the staff was very polite and courteous. We had a Non Smoking Deluxe King room and I had requested a higher floor when I made reservations. There are 12 floors in the building. We were in room 921 on the ninth floor. The room was very clean and had everything we needed. The washroom was very clean and the room looked new. Yes the fire station was across the street and the first night we left the window open and were awakened a few times by sirens but with the windows closed it wasn't too bad. We could have requested a room change but it was no big deal to us.

A free breakfast was served on the 2nd floor each morning from 6 am until 10 am. We realized the first night that there was an hour time difference between Toronto and Chicago as we had requested a wake up call for 8:15 and it was 8:45 am when we woke up. When we called Reception they told us it was 7:45 :-) Anyway breakfast was decent. You could certainly choose to have something to get your day started. They had bagels and toast, danishes, muffins, cereals, yogurt, juices, milk, coffee and tea and each day there were 2 hot breakfasts available. Usually eggs that looked like pancakes and sausages that looked like hamburger patties. No fresh fruit except apples and oranges.

The hotel has a pool on the 2nd floor and a fitness room which had a nice selection of equipment and a walk out to a small outdoor patio. There is also a business center on the 2nd floor with free internet access to hotel guests which we used on a few occassions to check for restaurants and show tickets.

The hotel is within walking distance to everything! 15 minutes to the Navy Pier (1 street all the way down to the waterfront) and 2-3 blocks to all the great shops. The ESPNZone is a few blocks away and so too are a good selection of restaurants like Harry Caray, Phil Stefani's...etc. and the free trolley service was a great option when we got tired of walking.

The people were very friendly and the city much more laid back than NYC. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting downtown Chicago .

Great people at the Hampton Suites in dowtown Chicago

The staff was courteous,friendly and helpful whether it be for directions,transportation. or a great place to eat. Three days after we left, they called our home concerning lost clothing. They WILL get our business on the next visit to Chicago.

Wonderful fun!

from A TripAdvisor Member
My 3 friends and I stayed at this hotel. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We all slept really well, the mattresses were so great my friend wrote down the brand name to buy one herself. The breakfast choices were much better than your average hotel. It was a joy to stay there and we will again.

Four year olds happy at Hampton

from FloridaTraveler62
When traveling with two 4 year olds, vacations can be heaven or hell. From the moment we arrived, the staff (valet, front desk, breakfast staff etc) were more than accomodating to my family. The two little ones were sound asleep when we pulled up to the hotel. I had called from the Shedd Aquarium to make sure our room was ready because I knew they would be fast asleep and did'nt want to be sitting in the lobby. The front desk had told me my room would be ready and it was!

The room/suite was perfect. Room enough for the kids to have "space", two TVs, and a kitchenette. Clean, nicely decorated, and great pillows.

Warm indoor pool was great entertainment as well as the sun terrance.

Breakfast was one of the best I have had as far as selection and it was served in a bright, cheery room. (Trix and LUcky Charms were a hit with the four year olds - while I got to enjoy my breakfast. Staff was helpful and very attentive. Nice mix of families and business travelers.

Great neighborhood - we all walked to Michigan Avenue. Took the trolley to Navy Pier. Always felt safe.

We did lots of things in Chicago - the favorite thing to my little ones - the pool at the hotel. :)

My sister has already booked a room for a stay in August.

Top Local Tips for Chicago

Use Airport Express Pre book the airport express shuttle, on time and great for people in wheelchairs

Arriving from O'Hare Unless you're traveling light then try to avoid the CTA blue line into the city. It is definitely the cheapest option but if traveling with big or more than one bag/case can be awkward. You'll definitely annoy other travelers if they have to climb over your bags (as there's nowhere to store them).

leave the car at home parking per day is ridiculous
