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

... Transportation in China runs the gamut of primitive to ultra-modern. While there aren't nearly as many bicycles as we saw 13 years ago, they are still one of the primary modes of transportation, particularly in the smaller cities of Changsha and Yueyang. Taking the place of bicycles are scooters. Some cities have special lanes just for scooters, and the sidewalks are lined with parked scooters everywhere you go. I don't recall seeing any ...
... the signing of some documents and had been quoted $300 for this service in Philadelphia. We’d run out of time to do it there and now it was quite urgent, we asked Mike if he knew of any lawyers in town. He jumped straight on the phone to call a friend who could help out, there was no answer so he left a message.
After writing up on a board in the kitchen who everyone was and when they would be around, I wanted to get out and buy some ingredients to make ...
We had to really cram as much into today as we possibly could. Allowing ourselves a late-ish start of 9.00, I was determined to taste the pleasures of the hotel's Spa. Wonderful facilities- a steam room that has me wondering if we can have one like it at home; a sauna which was not as unbearably hot as they normally are; a herbal sauna room with rosemary and sage crisping in the heat (which made me think there may have been a leg of lamb cooking in ...
Basically right from there, it was time to leave my mom and go through security. She cried, I almost did, but I held it together.
For an international flight, I'm surprised at how little security there was. Didn't have to take out my meds, didn't have to take out liquids, laptop, nothing. They just sent it through and that was that. Now, when you travel, people recommend that you travel in layers. It sounds like a great ...
... door due to the rain/snow and there was mud and slush every-were and cars about four deep!!! Poor Will got stranded in the middle of the road with three suitcases while I took off, needless to say it was a good start.
The Amtrack station was busy, dirty and everything you expect of a big busy train station. They did have great bag storage which was helpful and we disappeared to get some food. Will picked ...
