We have enjoyed staying at Embassy Suites due to the amount of room for families. They also have great breakfast that is free! The pool was nice but kind of small and the workout room was a bit small and full of people. We had a corner room which was great. Would definitely come back!

It was surprising that the manager's reception had no Diet Coke. You had to buy it for $3.50. Never been to an Embassy Suites that had a 11:00 am checkout. Edgy employees; all for a room that cost over $300 with parking. Used to be a favorite when in Chicago; not sure now.

The rooms were spacious, the breakfast was restaurant quality, you could special order your eggs/sides etc. The Happy Hour was ok, drink sizes were small, you could only get one at a time and the staff was pretty rude. This hotel is across the street from Whole Foods, which was easy to pick up bottled water or snacks. Concierge was...

Some times you find Embassy Suites to load and noise. This one was much better then most. We did have a high floor which I would recommend. Parents still allow kids to play to much in the halls but that is to be expected. If your a couple stay higher if possible.

We stayed here for 5 nights and really enjoyed the spacious rooms that you get as standard with embassy suites. It's well located in Chicago near Navy Pier and the lakefront. The complimentary breakfast is well catered with plenty of choices including cooked to order if required. This is the second time that I have stayed at an embassy suites...

The front desk manager, Mr. Root, was so friendly and helpful. We had a mix up with our room. He was so thoughtful and professional about solving our problem. The whole thing could have turned into a big fiasco. Thank you Mr. Root for taking such good care of us.

You can't go wrong with Embassy Suites. The hotel was sold out during the 4th of July weekend and you would have never known based upon the level and quality of the service. Great location very close to Navy Pier and Michigan Avenue shopping. Short walk to the trains or water taxis. Free cocktail reception in the evening with a...

I have always been a big fan of Embassy Suites, but travelling to Chicago, I never got to stay in one in Downtown because usually the price is way too high. For some reason, I was able to get the AAA rate and it was very very affordable (avg price $150 approx.) at this location. We drove in from Toronto,...

Staying in Streeterville

Neighbourhood Profile
Streeterville
Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities. You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you can also visit other popular attractions there such as the Chicago Children’s Museum and the Chicago Shakespeare Theater. Off the pier you’ll find more restaurants from low-cost pubs to high-end establishments. Arts and culture aficionados should be sure not to miss the Museum of Contemporary Art.
