The room was large as was the bathroom. Cleaned daily and on time. My only complaint was that there should be someone to clean...

My husband and I recently spent a long overdue weekend away in Chicago. We stayed at the La Quinta Inn and Suites on South Franklin in Chicago. The personnel that works at the hotel were above and beyond the best....especially Corinne. She gave us directions, places to visit and never lost her patience with our never-ending questions. Our suite on...

Great location, close to everything - 2 blocks to Sears Tower, 2 blocks to water taxi, bike rental right out front. Large, clean room and comfortable beds. Staff is friendly, helpful, and very accommodating. Lots of good food choices for breakfast. We appreciated the security - need room key to use the elevator. Would stay again without hesitation.

This hotel was located close to MicroTek Training Facility and in a good location for dining out or taking a walk after work. The rooms were very clean and staff was helpful and cheerful. This is the second time I've stayed in this hotel for work and would stay there again.

Although the staff at the downtown Chicago LaQuinta were very kind & helpful I would prefer not to have to stay here again. There was hair on my shower wall and the lighting in the hotel room made me feel like I was at a funeral - even with ALL of the lights tuned ON!

Beautiful hotel in a great location. The pricing was a bit high, but I understand I was traveling at a holiday peak point. Great locations near this hotel, right in the middle of where you would like to be. Breakfast was satisfying and healthy. I have stayed here a number of times and plan to return.

I stayed here for 3 nights while attending a training class in the hotel. The location was awesome - close to downtown attractions and restaurants. Tim in the meetings department went way above and beyond to make our group feel comfortable and welcomed. The room was very large and comfortable. The concierge was extremely helpful also. I would most definitely...

This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours.
