TravelPod Member ReviewsHomewood Suites by Hilton Chicago Downtown
An apart-hotel well situated for everywhere, and staffed by friendly helpful folks but in need of some colour and a makeover. Decked out in shades of dull green and drab brown it badly needs some chic. And some better equipment in the kitchen - it claims fully equipped but it was spartan. Fully adequate and well run though.

Historical Traveler Reviews Homewood Suites by Hilton Chicago Downtown
Warm, Wonderful, Excellent!
We stayed in the downtown Chicago Homewood Suites in August of 2003. It was so lovely. Gorgeous indoor pool on upper floor, allows you to view the city up close from a birds eye vantage. All glass enclosed it was beautiful, especially at night. The lobby had round the clock coffee, tea, and refreshments, very classy decor, homey with style. rooms were comfortable, and useful, nice kitchen area. staff was top notch friendly, and made us feel special. Doormen were exceptional at giving directions, and flagging taxis. The light suppers, and breakfasts were above and beyond what I could have expected for variety, quality, and service. Well put together!!. This place was great!
Homewood Suites: good choice; great price
Our family of 4 stayed at the Homewood Suites for 2 nights during Christmas week 2003. For the low price of $98, it was a very good value. With two teenagers, the living area was a bit small, but staff was very helpful, full hot breakfast was great, and a roll-away at no charge was a bonus. Location was very convenient. One disappointment was no hot tub alongside a small pool.
Love this hotel!!!!
I love the location,it is ideal with my young boys in that ESPN zone shares the building.It is directly across from Nordstroms. The breakfast is plentiful. There is a full kitchen and coffee in the lobby. We are very comfortable and clean. I would highly recommend.
Great For Business Travelers
I travel frequently on business to Chicago and this is the best value Hilton property downtown. The hotel is located at Grand and Wabash - 1-1/2 blocks to Michigan Ave.
The rate includes a great breakfast buffet and light evening meal.
There is a pool and exercise room on-site and HHonors Silver/Gold/Elite members receive free access to the Crunch Fitness Center located RIGHT next door. The staff has ALWAYS been very helpful and curteous.
The rooms have always been clean and well-maintained. They have a full-sized refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, and stovetop. I agree the separate living room and bedroom are not huge, but they are very adequate.
The only current drawback is that they do not have High-Speed Internet access in the rooms, but they tell me they should have it by the end of the year or early 2004.
Stay there!!! Great location, great rooms, great price!!!
Homewood suites...like being at home!
7 of us women went to Chicago from November 16th through the 20th. We shared 3 suites. If you want awesome views, kind and friendly staff, and so much more, then you must stay here. Breakfast was included. The Hotel is across the street from Nordstrom's, and a short walk from the magnificent mile. Our rate was great. I can't say enough about this hotel. Ask for (corner) suite 1318, 1418, 1518 etc. to have the best views. I suggest you pick up the most recent issue of "Chicago Magazine" just before you go or once you are there.
Stayed here twice
We have stayed here twice and will do it again. We got a suite with 2 beds/with pull-out couch and put 4 adults and 2 kids into it. We particularly enjoyed the complimentary buffet breakfasts and light dinners (M-Th) and have planned our trips accordingly. What better deal than to feed 6 people, 2 meals a day + room in downtown Chicago? We sampled the wonderful local restaurants at lunchtime instead of the pricier dinnertimes. The pool has a magnificent view of the city. The location is 1 mile from Navy Pier, 1 mile to the theater district, and right off of Michigan Ave. so we walked everywhere. Parking is expensive, so consider your alternatives if you are staying here.
Very satisfied with Homewood
August 2003. My family of four recently spent 5 nights at the Homewood Suites in Chicago. We felt like the amenities matched the price. We wanted a complimentary breakfast (this is the best we had ever experienced) and a pool. The pool was small but adequate. The rooms are advertised as suites, there is a door between the living room and bedroom. But, both are small. The pixs in the ad make them look much larger. Once the sofa bed is pulled out, there is no room to walk in the living room and you can not see the TV. But overall it was a good stay, room very clean and great location. The Mon.- Fri. evening reception was excellent and an extra bonus.
What a deal!
We stayed in the hotel for a long weekend with our family of 5 and were very pleased with our accomodations. We got a rate of $119 a night and this includes complimentary breakfast and a light dinner! The suite was clean and included a full kitchen. The space was large enough for our large family! Look on the ... website for the best rates. The value is excellent.
Aequate but clean
This hotel was okay. Clean and convenient but nothing special. Pricey compared other alternatives in downtown Chicago.
Bait and Switch tactics at Chicago Homewood Suites
Travelers, beware! This Homewood Suites pulled a bait and switch on me when I called to make my reservations. The central reservations office quoted me an competitive rate when I called to book a room, but the rate magically and substantialy increased when the automated attendant repeated my trip information back to me! A simple mistake that could have been rectified, had only this hotel cared. Instead, they did absolutely nothing, except run me in circles and ultimately insinuate that I dreamed up the originally quoted rate. Given the customer-service approach other hotels in Chicago are known for, I definitely recommend looking elsewhere to make your travel arrangements.

Off to see a comedy show "What they don't tell tourist about Chicago" we had dinner at the club while we watched the show. The comedy was very similar in material and improvisioning to what we saw when on the Alaskan Cruise. More acting than comedy .... however it was a night out, then to our disappointment .... for 2 hrs parking a whopping $20 .... a bit ...
... which I'm pretty sure today was, you can see four states from the 103rd floor, right across Lake Michigan. The other skyscrapers seemed humongous from street level, but now seem minute as you stare down at their roofs. The land stretching out away from the lake seems to be completely flat, though the cars appear a little larger than I expected. In 2010, four glass boxes were added to the western side of the building, jutting out four feet. Seeing ...

Our hotel, the Residence Inn on Magnificent Mile rocks! It especially rocks since I used my Marriott points and so it cost me nothing to stay for 3 nights! And to top it off, our room is ready at 10:30 AM! (normally a wait is in order till 4pm) I needed to thaw out since my fingers nearly fell off on way to the hotel. And yes, I had gloves on.
Since we bought a Metro ...
