The La Quinta Inn & Suites Chicago Downtown features a contemporary design that is both functional and environmentally friendly. This location participates in the city's Green Roof Program. Green roofs help keep cities healthy and help conserve energy because they work to lower surrounding urban heat temperatures. Green roofs also help reduce storm water runoff, improve water quality and create conditions for longer-lasting roof systems.
The Chicago Downtown location also employs "district cooling", an innovative system that significantly reduces our carbon footprint by eliminating the need for legacy equipment such as boilers and a central plant located at the property. This also helps to create a more energy-efficient and well-maintained distribution network.

"Got an upgrade"
Reviewed Jul 30, 2014
ssounds | Helsinki, Finland
I'm writing this review based on a stay in July 2013.
I had initially booked a "Double Bed Room" (or are they single rooms?), but they are quite tiny, don't have a stand-in shower, seem to be next to the noisy elevator and are not really worth it. In July all American hotels are really expensive, and the "Excellent" value rating I gave only applies after the upgrade.
I inquired about the possibility to change rooms after the first night (elevators 'pling-plong'-ing all the time) and I was upgraded to a high-floor Mini King Suite with a desk, couch and city view!
+ Location (next to Willis Tower, Millennium Park, multiple EL train stations, shopping on State) but only if you like Downtown.
+ Free upgrade to "mini King suite" (I think) when I complained about the noise. Bathroom also had a proper stand-in shower, some rooms don't.
+ Great HD cable.
+ An empty fridge, microwave, coffeemaker, ironing.
+ A business center with free printing (useful and not a given), a fitness room and a pool (didn't use).
+ Basic continental breakfast included.
- Noisy (the Washington/Wells station, the street below, noise from other rooms, the corridor, elevator if close by). Bring earplugs if you're a light sleeper (I am).
- Housekeeping didn't seem to vacuum floors or replenish shampoos.
- Changing rooms didn't go as planned (I talked to one person, left luggage after 9AM for another person, came back probably at 5-6PM and the next person was completely unaware of anything. He was also clealy annoyed of the whole complaint since they were busy with bookings.
- Downtown (at least this area) closes pretty early, so you'll have to find somewhere else to have dinner. Same with CVS's etc.
- No safety box in room.
For the most part, our stay (July 25, 26th) was decent. I loved the decor of the hotel and the fact that there is a Noodles and company literally a door away. It is walking distance to Garrettes popcorn and the Chicago theatre. The King suite was very spacious and comfortable for my family. The day staff at the front desk were helpful and courteous. My complaint begins with the evening staff or runners. I placed a call the night of July 25th for extra towels and it took over 30 minutes of waiting before I was prompted to call the desk (I had to request the towels again). At about 11:30pm the same night I walked downstairs asking the man behind the desk if there were extra blankets, he hardly looked at me, mumbled something to me and used his walkie talkie asking someone from the other end to bring blankets to my room. I thanked him and again received very little acknowledgement from this staff member which in my opinion hurts the entire hotel stay experience. One other thing, the ladies that work the eating lounge area need to be aware of what they are saying in the early hours prior to opening of the breakfast area. I over-heard complaints Sunday morning July 27th from the kitchen staff about the guest and took that personally because I was a guest. That also took away from my experience at this location. Would I stay here again? Depends. Have I been impressed to refer this La Quinta's to someone else? Probably not. Customer service means everything in the hospitality business.
Room was very clean. There was little noise from outside. Close enough to public transportation. Easy to drive to once you get off the freeway. There is a Kuerig coffee maker in the room. Staff was very helpful.
I stayed here for a weekend girls getaway and I have no complaints! They were kind enough to let us check in early, which was great after having to be at an airport at 3 AM! The bed was a cloud, easily one of the best beds i've slept on. The location was great. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Tom was a life saver many times and really made things enjoyable.
Stayed for 6 nights while traveling for work. Room was clean and comfortable. Good breakfast and location, although several nearby stores and restaurants are closed Saturday and Sunday. Short walk to Willis (Sears) Tower. Room had a refrigerator and microwave. Would stay there again.
