Great room, scenic view, fabulous price! – We got a great deal from the website hotwire on this hotel (yeah, you don't find out the hotel til you book, but you can figure out where you need to be with hotwire's maps, fyi) I highly recommend that site when looking for a great deal on a hotel downtown!
The Hilton Garden Inn is right in the hub of streeterville! Everything was in walking distance! The city view is so vivid at night! Our beds were soft and relaxing with some very comfy down sheets/blankets! Plenty of pillows for you bed hogs and our room (and we found out later every room) had a mini-fridge and microwave. Oh, and don't get suckered into the $4.95 bottle of water by the coffee machine, rip off city!
The only real downside were the "angry maids" that we heard in the hallway slamming doors and talking very loud...otherwise, we got some decent sleep and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The guest service at the front desk is outstanding. The employees were very receptive and gave us plenty of information to help us with our stay downtown. Everything we came to do was in walking distance from the Hilton, so we saved big $$$ on cab fare. The red-line is also right by this hotel...so your options seem unlimited!
I will stay here again and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a reasonably priced hotel in the middle of downtown!
Really reasonable downtown hotel – This hotel is nice and clean and reasonably priced (for a downtown hotel). The staff are really pleasant--they are always helpful with maps, suggestions for local events and restaurants, and especially important (to me, anyway) shopping assistance! The hotel is only about a block and a half from the Northbridge Mall (awesome), and within three or four blocks of restaurants like Bucca di Beppo, Fogo de Chao, a good PF Changs, Rock Bottom Grill, etc. It's also a block and a half from Michigan Avenue and right next to a Red Line El stop, which means that Chinatown is just a hop, skip, and jump away. The hotel restaurant is the Weber Grill, which is a pretty fun place at night (lots of people, great cosmopolitans, and games on the televisions) and has a yummy chop salad. It seems like all of Chicago downtown is within walking distance when you stay at this hotel. This is our "go to" hotel when visiting Chicago--my husband and I have stayed here about 20 times now and we've never had a bad experience.
Great location – Traveling with 15 and 11 year olds can be asking for trouble, but we were pleasantly surprised to find the hotel right at the subway stop. Take the turn for the NE corner, up the steps and you are practically in the door! We were not sure what to expect, but we had a clean, quiet room and an attentive staff. The pool was small and the hot tub looked a little too foamy. OK, alot too foamy! This hotel is in a location surrounded by other hotels that would be considered a step up, but you really can't go wrong here. Tons of family dining options, and convienence stores are also nearby. Ask for a room on the north side. The view is better there. We would without question come back to this hotel. Thank you Hilton Garden Inn staff.
A winning combination of location and added comforts for families and extended-stay business travelers. – The Scene
Contemporary decor and functional furnishings make this hotel a good choice for general comfort and convenience. It carries the same amenities as other Hiltons in the chain, and the added service needed to compete with Chicago's other large hotels.
The 357 guest rooms--including six suites--are on floors 13 to 23, above the garage and away from noisy traffic below. Comfortable furnishings are basic, and guests have access to the signature Hilton Garden Inn hospitality center, complete with microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker and complimentary coffee. In addition, the hotel's 24-hour Pavilion Pantry off the lobby sells snacks and beverages to go. Business travelers will appreciate the optional high-speed Internet access, desk-level outlets and ergonomic chairs. The 24-hour business center is complimentary for guests, with a computer, laser printer, photocopier and fax.
Great place to stay – Great location, only a short walk away from Michigan avenue, and in a great area for a variety of restaurants, bars, nightlife. The staff is very friendly. Check in/out was very quick. Rooms are average, just like any other hotel, very updated, not too small.
I would definetly recommend this hotel for anyone, business, pleasure, whether it be family or a romantic getaway.
Discrete, friendly service – After having a bit too much on New Year's, my friend and I decided we couldn't even try to get home, and we stumbled into the Hilton Garden. The check-in staff were courteous and understanding (and even offered help up to our room, but we weren't THAT badly-off) and gave us a late check out for the next day. Three cheers for service! It is a comfortable, not too stuffy hotel near everything, but without the ridiculous price tag of its brother Hilton on Michigan. Great for the price.
