It doesn't seem to matter how long you stay somewhere - the last few days are always a rush to check off items on the 'to do' list. This week will be no exception for us; we fly home to Melbourne on Tuesday of next week and there are still a number of places we want to explore before we go. Today we decided to revisit the Art Institute of Chicago, primarily to look at the current exhibition which is organised in collaboration with New York's Metropolitan Museum of ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Plus Hawthorne Terrace Hotel Chicago
A very good choice
We stayed at the Hawthorne because all the downtown hotels were full with 70,000 visiting Rotarians. It was an excellent choice because, to repeat what other people have said, it was quiet, clean and comfortable in good surroundings. I would recommend the Melrose Diner for breakfast or dinner and also the Turkish/Moroccan restaurant nearby. The people in the neighbourhood were very friendly and pleasant. Transport was easy but it could take a long time returning from downtown in the rush hour. It was convenient for Lincoln Park and the Zoo, which is well worth visiting. The staff were very helpful, as were the chambermaids. The only complaint is the bedroom lighting - the low energy bulbs made the room gloomy and it was difficult to read or see in the mirrors.
My son & I stayed there for 2 nights in April while we went to a very cold Cubs game & a play. Surprisingly quiet halls & room even though it was a full house. Clean, large, comfortable room, excellent beds, decent shower. I agree with the other reviews - the am offerings are good but there is great options nearby. My only complaint (& it is minor) is that the desk clerks make what ever it is they are doing on their computers their priority, but they are friendly & helpful with directions for the area.
I highly recommend the Hawthorne Terrace as an affordable, comfortable spot in Chicago. The staff were pleasant, the room clean and spacious, and I really liked the neighborhood location. Tons of bars, restaurants, an improv spot and Wrigley Field are all within walking distance.
While the hotel provides a Continental breakfast, I'd recommend going across the street (at least once) to Anne Sather's. The hotel also offers free wireless Internet access in the rooms. I would definitely stay here again!
Stayed at the BW Hawthorne Terrace for two nights in February. First highlight is the hotel shuttle which can be arranged via the hotel's website, certainly worth the 28 dollars. Hotel is tucked away and can be missed if you don't keep an eye out.
Worked out well for us...
We all found the Hawthorne Terrace just right for our needs. My brothers and I all converged in Chicago for my father's brain surgery this fall, so we wanted a hotel relatively near the C.I.N.N. (Neuro Institite.) The hotel is small & very quiet. We stayed in two hotel-suites which were lovely; the neighborhood was great, fairly hip, with plenty of shops, restaurants, services...The parking structure right next door was a real bonus... and very reasonably priced. Housekeeping staff was great. Some of the front desk staff were quite nice but unfortunately several of them were really rude & snotty. (we stayed five days and the rude ones never improved.) Too bad... their behavior blemishes an otherwise great place to stay.
Great place for the price. Good location too. Beats the mayhem of staying on Michigan Avenue and good restaurants and bars are nearby. Clean rooms, helpful staff.
BEST little hotel in CHICAGO
What a charming hotel. It was very clean, neat, and well appointed. The staff was delicious. I couldn't be happier with all the services provided. Great restaurants, clubs, and activities all around. I am pleased as punch. I will be back! :-)
I loved it, I loved it, I loved it!
I loved it, I loveds it, I loved it. It was really refreshing to visit such a quiant hotel in such a vibrant neighborhood. There was too much to do!, from Wrigely Feild, to Clark Street, to North Halstead, to the lakefront, and just minutes from Michigan Ave. I loved it! The staff is beyond compare. I have always liked Chicago, but I love this hotel. The room was very clean, comfortable, and functional. The staff was friendly and gave me too many suggetsions on what to do, where to go, and how to get around.
Whoever owns and manages this palce should be proud. I can't tell enough people to stay here and they are booked most weekends and Cubs games. So go there, book early, and have fun.
Don't believe all you read
I use tripadvisor a lot and get mad when some use it to hurt others. I've stayed at The Best Western Hawthorne Terrace, I go to a lot of Cubs games. It's a great little hotel. I can walk to Wrigley, eat at a wide variety of restaurants, and drink and see live music all around. The hotel is exceptually clean, and the staff goes out of thier way to help. I love this hotel. My wife and i will be back several times. You got to check this place out, it's nice.

I was looking for a place to stay in Chicago that wasn't right in the heart of downtown, but still just a short trip away. I found this hotel online and liked most of the reviews I read. The price was right and the location was even better (right around the corner from the train and Wrigley Field). Plenty of places within walking distance for dinner or a drink if you are not comfortable riding the train at night. This hotel was extremely charming, quiet, and very clean. The continental breakfast was good. Not much selection, but hey, it was free! My only complaint would be that our room was on the north side of the hotel and the only view we had out our second floor window was of the broken boarded up windows of the parking garage next door. I will definitely stay here again!
