This hotel's convenience is the #1 reason I've been back year after year for business trips. It is very close to the office at Madison & Wacker, the breakfast is included, the rooms are extremely clean, and it is close enough to lots of restaurants and coffee spots to be handy, but not right above them which could be noisy....

We stayed here during our recent visit to Chicago. I would rate it a very good hotel overall. We really enjoyed our room. The location in downtown Chicago was great. The complimentary wifi and breakfast added great value. The staff at the breakfast area were not overly friendly. I recall one employee reprimanding a hotel guest for not clearing their...

This is the first time I have stayed in a La Quinta Inn. The one night stay was arranged for us so I didn't have any choice. I was pleasantly pleased with the place. It is centrally located so that we could take a nice walk around the area. The room was large, clean and nicely decorated. Their complimentary breakfast...

We chose this hotel based on it's proximity to Union Station for an overnight stay. After 54 hours on a train from Seattle it was nice to be greeted in a personal way by the front staff. The hotel was an easy walk, about four blocks, from the station. The room was a good size, great linens, nice bathroom and...

Business trip to Chicago. This La Quinta is central to everything. Staff were extremely nice and helpful. Very clean hotel, well appointed rooms with modern feel and wow, the towels are awesome. I mean seriously, I would stay again just for the towels. Tim, their group and meeting coordinator is AWESOME! Would absolutely stay at this property again!

we have stayed at La Quinta Chicago at least three times.Staff were very friendly and helpful. I had forgotten a walking stick in the room, phoned and it was promptly mailed it to my home address. 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!

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
