I chose this hotel for the proximity to the things we wanted to do in Chicago last weekend. This hotel is in a fantastic location. It was easy to get to, and the parking garage is easy go get in and out of. Check in was quick. Our room was clean and spacious. Paid for high floor city view and...

This was my second time staying at the Embassy Suites in Downtown Chicago on the Magnificent Mile. I really enjoy staying here. The atmosphere is welcoming, the people are friendly, the hotel is very aesthetically pleasing. And the hotel is pretty much a walk or a cab ride away from anything you could possibly want to do. In other words...

Within 15 minute of walking to Minneapolis Convention Center, and other entertainment facilities. breakfast included as was a 2 hour happy hour. This building has valet parking which makes everything easy. Skywalk for security can be used, although limited signs makes it confusing. We will most definitely stay here again.

We stayed in a 2 room suite with 2 double beds March 14-17th. Found it a nice hotel with good amenities for a family of 5. 2 televisions, 2 comfortable beds, and a pull out couch. Had good experiences with the breakfast staff (hard working and good omelets), the bartenders at happy hour, and the general staff that hangs around...

This hotel as the appearance of a great place to stay. The location is its best quality. The outer rooms of each suite are very dated. The front desk agent has yet to look me in he eyes. The free breakfast was a free for all! I stayed here because the price fit into everyone's budget who was in my...

We're a family with two teens. We loved the extra space and fridge/wetbar, hot breakfast, overall solid and friendly service, cleanliness and the location. It was easily walkable to Navy Pier and many restaurants, etc. Short answer: would definitely stay again. We went late March over a long weekend. The value for the food, room, location and even parking* was...

I choose Embassy Suites because of it's location, and the brand name. While I've visited Chicago many many times before I never stayed this close to Navy Pier. The location was excellent, the ability to take mass transit from the airport to the hotel was also a breeze, and not because i know the city, but because it is centrally...

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.
