We stayed here the night before flying out of Midway. We will stay here again! We brought the train into Chicago and walked just a few short blocks to the hotel. The streets we walked were busy but there were ample size and safe sidewalks with plenty of pedestrian crossing. The lobby was not well marked from the street side,...

We drove down from the Milwaukee area the night before an early flight. Checking in was fast and easy....desk clerk was very friendly. Our room was efficient, clean and comfortable. The next morning we were pleasantly surprised by the breakfast buffet. The area was super clean and the food was hot, fresh, and tasty. We were impressed by the choices....more...

This was our first visit to Chicago. The staff went out of their way to make our stay the best it could have been. With small kids, they made it very easy for us with an early check-in, late check-out, immediate shuttle service to the train station. The staff was very friendly and wanted to help make our stay as...

Stayed the night before an early morning flight to California on 3/10. Pretty much got to the room & went to bed as we had to be up at 3:00 am. Room was clean, bed was comfy. Shuttle driver was very friendly & chatted with everyone. Only took about 10 minutes to get to the airport. Upon our return, called...

Connecting flight was cancelled at Midway. Chose to stay at the Carlton Inn Midway based on reviews and pictures on here and a great rate online. Plus, it was just 10 minutes away from the airport. Carlton Inn provided a shuttle from the airport to the Inn, with the driver offering to stop so we could pickup food. We declined,...

We stayed at the Carlton Inn Midway as a Park and Fly stay. The room was newly remodeled and very clean. We stayed one night, enjoyed the included breakfast and they shuttled us to the airport. Mid-way is less than a 10 minute ride from the hotel. Our car was secured in a fenced lot with security servalence. We were...

Living in central Wisconsin but flying at 7:05 am from Chicago Midway meant looking for a park/sleep/fly option. Fortunately we found the Carlton Inn Midway. First impressions weren't favorable as the exterior of black painted cinderblock resembles a jail not a hotel but do not let this book be judged by its cover. The front desk staff and shuttle drivers...

Located pretty close to a metro station, so you can leave your car at the hotel, when you go downtown Chitown. Very good Italian restaurant close by! Breakfast room is bright and friendly, breakfast is above average.

Our flight out of Chicago was cancelled this past week, and we ended up being rescheduled for the next day. I booked through tripadvisor, called the front desk and asked if we could check in early. They were very accommodating and sent a van right over with a great driver. I wish I had gotten his name! Says he still...
