Historical Traveler Reviews Club Quarters Chicago - Central Loop
A gem of a hotel for 2 people
My husband and I stayed at Club Quarters Chicago for an anniversary weekend getaway. It is a perfect hotel for 2 people -- our room would have been too small if our children had been with us, but for us it was great.
The staff was extremely friendly and helpful -- we experienced a wonderful level of service. The hotel was clean and well decorated. I would definitely stay there again, and wouldn't hesitate recommending it to my friends!
Its not the Omni~but its not bad!
Put a bid of $99 on priceline and got this hotel. After reading reviews, we were leery of staying here but had no choice. Called ahead and said we had 4 people, got a bigger room with queen bed, sleeper sofa and roll away for no extra fee. Received warm welcomes from staff on arrival and through out stay. Room was fine, had a kitchenette and hotel was newly and nicely decorated (Opinion coming from 4 women)! Had some problems with the toilet but was fixed right away. Beds were comfortable; rooms were quiet and dark. Great location walked to theater and Marshall Fields, free trolley pick-up one block down, and Starbucks is next door! Parking was off-site, they did offer a discount but it was still $19 for 24hrs. Would stay here again and suggest it to anyone.
Warning--Beware Club Quarters
To describe this hotel as three- or four-stars is a gross overstatement. The rooms were unbelievably small, with little room to turn around, much less spread out. The air conditioning was vastly substandard, the beds were beat up and uncomfortable, and the cleaning was questionable. The great location at Wacker and Michigan did little to make up for the two twin beds to sleep on. Stay away from CQ at all costs.
Wedding party disaster !
I had reserved a block of 15 rooms at the Club Quarters in Chicago for my guests who were coming in from out of town for the party. After I had mailed out the hotel phone number and a map and directions, I found out 3 weeks later that the hotel denied any knowledge that I had ever arranged anything! They had no rooms reserved for me. It turned out that it had been set up through New York with a travel agency and the hotel in Chicago was never notified of the rooms! My guests had no where to stay! What a nightmare! Don't rely on this place! It's a joke!
Ideal for Blues Festival visitors.
If you're in Chicago for a Grant Park event, or as a tourist, the location and price couldn't be better. For the Blues Fest, it was ideal, especially when Saturday turned so cold and the lobby/library -- with its blazing fireplace -- was so warm. Plus, it's one block from an El entrance with an elevator on the street that leads you and your luggage on a $1.50 trip to the airport! Compare that to the $34-plus-tip and slower taxi ride I took on arrival. Room was small but clean, and desk staff wonderfully helpful. Adjacent pub is friendly, good and popular.
Good price, great location
I really liked this place. I felt like they were space conscious in the best sense. The room was small but ample enough (probably not a great choice if you're going to spend a lot of time in your room), the lobby area was cozy but nicely decorated, had a warm fire and two free computers where I checked my email. But the location was fantastic, two or three blocks from the Art Institute Museum and Michagan Ave. For $117, I couldn't have been happier.
Never again !
Booked thru priceline -- paid $180 to stay in a men's business dorm -- parking 4 blocks away and no bathtub in the room. Supposed 3-star !
Nice but Noisy
Rooms are small but adequate for a busy weekend. Main drawback: our room's walls must be made of paper and thin paper at that. We could hear EVERY word from the room next door and they weren't shouting. Our sleep took a beating with their noise including their door slamming at 4:00 AM. I don't blame the guests, the walls are just not insulated to keep out the noise.
Great value and convenient
A great place to stay if you are in Chicago for a getaway weekend. Rooms are small but adequate, especially since you will probably be out exploring most of the time anyway. Well furnished and comfortable for their normal business clientele. Nice pub/restaurant downstairs. Very convenient to the El so you don't feel isolated despite the Loop location. The staff was excellent - my bag was mistakenly taken from the luggage room by another guest and the hotel staff went above and beyond to retrieve it and mail it to me overnight when it was returned. (I will now invest in something distinguishing to put on my bag to avoid the "all black roll-aways" problem!!) Hotel is very safe and secure - also set up so that noise does not seem to be a problem. Walking distance to the Berghoff and Sears Tower.
Small but ample
booked room on hotline - great rate--less than $100/night for 3 adults business club hotel but non-members can book on weekends on arrival only queen beds but able to get roll away for no add. charge great little restaurant/bar parking +2 blocks away but we arrived 6pm Friday nite enabling us to park right in front for free great security no entry to elavators or after hours in main entry w/o key card Sears tower 2 blocks south great place to stay if you're willing to walk or take cab to points of interest

... Up until quite recently the two families lived relatively close to one another, so the girls would get together with their girls for 'play dates' some afternoons. Then Sam's employer moved out to the suburbs, into one of those huge American mansions you see on films like Home Alone, a good hour's commute from their house. Had she been intending to stay in Chicago she would have found a different job, however, she would be moving home to Florida at the end of May, so as she liked ...
... anything exciting to tell because I literally just sat in airport. The flight was the same. At this point I had been in the airport system for about 19 hours so I was pretty worn out. I slept on the plane, landed, picked up my bag, and went home. It feels good to be home. SONG OF THE FLIGHT: Cheers by ...
... we went to a Shark show at the IMAX ("we'll take the 10:30am show, it's at 11am"). It was good.
Then we headed to the Museum of Science and Technology. Taxi's have a strange sign in the back - it lists the clean up fees for vomit and reminds passengers of the penalties of assaulting an on-duty taxi driver. Weird that both things happen enough that it needs to be part of the standard info sign.
... of another one. I did get a nice long explanation about how, due to the rise of the mobile phone, payphones are being phased out and how I should probably invest in a mobile phone myself. These speeches whilst well meaning are said to me like I've just been defrosted from the 80's and have no idea about technology. So I set off in search of a payphone. First port of call a local museum (public building). No luck. I asked them for a nearby hotel and headed there. No luck, ...
... bus and we travelled the countryside of Michigan, then briefly through Indiana to reach our destination state of Illinois. Indiana is another state that was affected by the demise of the car industry (due to car making and steel production), with over half the population moving on since the 50's. In random Indiana news there's apparently a law stating that you cannot enter a movie theatre or mode of pubic transport within ...
