Very nice extended stay. The only drawback is that the complimentary breakfast is offsite(construction going on)Service was excellent,especially the Doorman (Andre) .Checked in very late on a weekend night(wee hours) He was awesome. Made sure we were settled and he took care of parkinge,etc. Rooms have been upgrade.Defiantley recommend this spot.

MY wife and I and our 14 year old son stayed here for the weekend of the Chicago Air Show in August 2016. The location was very convenient as we could walk to the Air Show and to lots of restaurants and shopping on the Magnificent Mile. We had a suite with one large bedroom with King Bed. The room...

We have stayed at this hotel at least 5 times primarily because of the location; it is located off the north end of Michigan Avenue which is a prime location for us. The hotel is clean, linens fresh, products average. It is a bit dated, but it is being remodeled, so there is hope. The staff are pleasant, eager to... More

The folks at the door and front desk were absolutely terrific. I was given a corner room suite which was very large and spacious. The decor has been updated but its pretty obvious that it is an old property that has had a makeover. I am pretty picky about mattresses, and prefer a very supportive mattress that is on the...

The hotel is located just off the North End of Michigan Avenue. It's not especially close to the "L" transportation lines, but certainly it's within walking distance and there are plenty of restaurants and shopping nearby. Across the street (where a complimentary breakfast was served) is the restaurant Rosebud Steakhouse. The breakfast was nothing special, but I understand dinners at... More

My wife, adult daughter, and I stayed at this hotel on a Saturday night. I chose this property as it is the only Residence Inn in the downtown area that has two bedroom units.

The location was fantastic for taking advantage of the shopping in the area. Our room, which was a two bedroom suite, was fantastic. It was very clean and cozy. The folks from the time we checked in till we left were courteous and very helpful. Very nice place to stay.

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.
