I have stayed at this hotel several times over the past few years and have always had a good stay. Whether for business or pleasure, by myself or with family, the staff and facilities are above satisfactory. I have taken advantage of the exercise room, the swimming pool, breakfast and evening reception, and enjoyed them all.

Nice, clean hotel with an exceptional staff. Available bar and good breakfast. The location of hotel is perfect for downtown Chicago. The lobby is clean and easy access to shuttles, cars, cabs, etc. I stayed for one night. I will certainly stay at this property again.

It has been a long time in our travels where we could say absolutely every member of the hotels staff we were in contact with during our recent stay at the Embassy Suites, Lakefront, were genuinely interested in giving outstanding service. In the lead of this quality was Dinah A. who greeted us at the check in. This team is...

We were greeted by Amanda at check-in and given a beautiful corner room. We then had the pleasure of being served great drinks by Enrique during the complimentary happy hour. He was so pleasant and so helpful-which is not always the case during busy times. Then we were approached by Jamie, the manager, to check in on us and we...

Fantastic service! Great location near the Magnificent Mile! Spectacular views of downtown and the lake! The staff took very good care of us, but be sure you ask for views of downtown or the lake. The full breakfast and evening reception always add value when staying at an Embassy Suites.

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.
