As outlined in my survey, the hotel staff stacked huge pile of dirty linens and dirty dishes just outside of my door. I checked in at noontime and it was still there when I left around 6:00pm for dinner. It was gone by the time I returned, but the impression was made. I did inform the front desk upon going...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

Everyone was so helpful, and friendly from the time we stopped our rental car to settling down in our room. In particular, Jocelyn, MJ and Steven. We checked in at 3:30pm. We did self parking in the AMC carpark which has direct access to the hotel lobby, as we did not need all our bags for a one night stay....

Great stay at this hotel! Staff was very pleasant and accommodating. The only complaint would be that the breakfast was extremely crowded, and the food was not as warm (in the buffet) as I would have expected. Of course, I was there during the St. Patrick's Day celebration weekend, so that may have contributed to the crowds. The hotel ambassadors...

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our joint-venture business here! Great central location with transit options nearby to virtually get you anywhere. We had a beautiful lake view from our king room. Great breakfast!

We chose Embassy Suites because this was my granddaughter's first trip to Chicago and we wanted to be centrally located to show her Michigan Ave at it's best. Our party consisted of my husband, granddaughter, daughter-in-law and me. We loved how friendly all of the staff at the hotel was as well as the free cooked to order breakfast and...

The hotel is very conveniently located 2 blocks from Michigan Avenue, Navy Pier, and is across the street from a Whole Foods. Additionally, some of the best donut places in the city are a short walk North down Colombus Avenue. The staff is very friendly and always happy to help. The rooms are very modern and always spotless. However, the...

Constantly) can hear from room. Drinks are VERY expensive, but they offer happy hour from 5-7. Gets four free drinks per person. The rooms were comfortable... Clean, nice...

Stayed for 2 nights....short vacation. Everything was TREMENDOUS...the room was clean, roomy,and had a great city view. We were on the 16th floor. Embassy Suites always provides the best breakfast and free evening cocktail hour(2hours actually). This Chicago hotel has the very best employees....everyone was so nice and very helpful. No need to try any other hotel in downtown Chicago.

We stayed for the Flower Show, Art Museum, and River Architecture tour. Our suite was spacious and comfortable. The staff was super nice and very helpful. We did have a snafu: one of us was told there was a shuttle from O'Hare. There isn't, and a cab is 50 bucks. We could walk to all our destinations, also to the...

I stayed here for a week while on business. The location is close to everything downtown, must things within walking distance including Michigan Ave (Miracle Mile), the Bean, some great resturants, etc. The rooms are large and comfortable. The morning breakfast is good, omelettes are really good and made-to-order. The line may be long but they move it along quickly....

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
