Club Quarters Chicago - Central Loop
Travel Blogs from Chicago
Chicago is definitely underrated, even I wondered why Gav was so insistent on coming here when there were so many other places we could visit in the US. After five days here I was converted, it is a very cool city.

The Chicago Blackhawks Stanley Cup Parade was going to kick off at 10:30 that morning, starting at the intersection of Wacker Drive and Washington. More than two million people turned out for the victory parade! Luckily, we were walking in the other direction toward the Museum Campus.

The third largest city in the US, the windy city, home of the Cubs and the White Sox....oh, and the Blackhawks!!! The Blackhawks, one of the "Original Six" NHL teams, won the Stanley Cup the night before we arrived in Chicago, so you'll see a theme throughout our weekend. It was the team's first Cup win since 1961.

After we booked a hotel in New Buffalo, we started heading west around the lake towards Chicago. After going through 4 tolls, a thunderstorm, and almost 2 hours of traffic, we finally parked our cars and boarded the cta towards downtown.

The build up to the match was pretty much a non-event considering it was a final apart from the constant adverts for the competition sponsors and chants of U-S-A!!! The match itself was very non-descript in the ...

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.
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
