the rooms were clean they had free internet as well free breakfast, however, the breakfast was not the breakfast you can have, we stayed there for 3 nights and only the first morning we tried there breakfast and it was horrible. mcdonalds breakfsast is actually better. the rooms were spacious and had microwave and fridge which was great. I highly recommend this hotel to everyone who likes to spend there most of time outside the hotel for a great vacation

"Great place to stay in downtown Chicago"

This hotel is close to Union Station and Michigan Ave. Great place to stay, but not too many good places to eat nearby. Smoking rooms only have double beds. Everything was very clean and the beds were comfortable. Had to request a mini fridge.

"Great, affordable stay in the Loop/Business District"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Aug 16, 2014
sdski | Cedar Rapids, Iowa
We came into Chicago late via Amtrak and selected the LaQuinta due to its proximity to Union Station ? less than $5 cab ride ? and because I had points saved up from the loyalty program. When we arrived, they were out of non-smoking rooms in our class, but had already bumped us up to a Jr. Suite. The room was nice, but since we had asked for two beds and the new room was a king, we had to use the ?sofa? bed. Which is the oddest contraption I?d seen. It worked, but none of the sheets provided fit it quite right. It was late and my son isn?t picky ? so we did just fine. The hotel is very nice ? staff was great and the room was bright and clean. I liked the desk looking out the window and for a Chicago hotel, the room was spacious. If you are looking for an affordable stay in the heart of the loop/business district, LaQuinta would work well for you.

"What a wonderful hotel!!!"
5 of 5 stars Reviewed Aug 15, 2014

Hotel is located in the middle of the finical district in Chicago. It was within walking distance to everywhere we planned to go and more. Plenty of restaurants located nearby the hotel as well. The room itself was very comfortable and very well decorated and exceeded my expectations! Enjoyed having a stand up shower and more than enough counter space in the bathroom for all of my hygiene products. The bed was as comfortable as the bed I just recently bought at home. The air conditioner kept the room nice and cold just the way I like it. Over all it was a very pleasant stay! Ashley at the front desk was a pleasure talking with! She recommended a bunch of things for us to do on our last day in the city and a wonderful Mexican restaurant around the corner from the hotel. The only complaint I had was that the swimming pool had way to much chlorine! It was overbearing! It was a very small pool and hot tub but it was very nice to have! Thank you for a pleasant stay La Quinta!

"Within walking distance of Union Station and other public transport."

Our family stayed in this hotel for one night during the week. The hotel is located in the Financial District and it is an easy walk to/from Union Station. Since it is in the Financial District, most of the people around are working during the week not tourists or shoppers. It was decidedly quieter in the evening, and we enjoyed walking around without feeling rushed. The hotel service was friendly and helpful. Our room was available for early check-in, and they held our bags so that we could pick them up later after we checked out in the morning. The breakfast staff was friendly and happy to be at work. There was a nice selection of breakfast food. The standard rooms did not have a microwave or refrigerator. Our room overlooked the courtyard and had no view, the room also seemed a little dark. The pool had way too much chlorine which leads me to believe chemicals are compensating for cleaning the pool area. The tiny hot tub was foaming so much I didn't even put my foot in it. The pool area was the most disappointing part of the hotel as everything else pretty much met our expectations.
