Great location behind Marina City – This hotel located between Dearborn and State right behind the twin 'corncob' towers of Marina City is conveniently located to River North attractions. We stayed here four night during the 2006 Blues Festival. Staff was great, they held our luggage when we arrived at noon and our room wasn't ready yet. Had a problem with the card key when first trying to get into the room. Housekeeping employee working down the hall came over and helped us out...real friendly.
Funky decor may be more suited to younger folks. Bathrooms quite large for downtown hotel.
Bin 36 restaurant looked nice, but we didn't have the opportunity to eat there.
Located three blocks from State, Lake and Clark CTA stations with access to every major train line on the CTA. Also located two blocks from Michigan Ave.
Want something different? Stay at the HOB Hotel! – This hotel was very nice. The staff was helpful, the bathrooms were huge, the bathroom towels were huge, the area was nice and there was a lot around. The public transportation system was nearby. The room was very clean and about standard size. We had a great view, but we were on Floor 15 of 16, so that may be why. Some of the lower floors may not have a very good view. But its still a really nice place to stay!! Not recommended for families that have children due to there being no pool. But it's great for a weekend visit or business travelers!
Lovin it! – This hotel is like none i have ever seen. The decor is neat and the fabrics are bright. The Kazbar is cozy. We ordered room service at 4am and the food was great. Already made arrangements to go back.
Second time in Chicago, incredible beds, exelent service and very kind people, they were the best vacation we ever had.
My boyfriend surprised me with a trip To Chicago for St. Patrick's Day, and we stayed at the HOB. It was incredible. The staff was helpful and polite. The music at the club was very good. I love our room. So bright and cheery! We had a great view of the (green) river. The hotel is centrally located, so there are many places you can walk to rather than drive. I recommend it and cannot wait to stay there again.
Very busy – The stay was brief, but great. The room was a treat - not just the same old stuff. Very colorful and busy. (Reminds me of New Orleans). Our view was good - got a corner room looking south to the river. Alot of amenities if you're willing to pay. They let me check out an hour later than usual so I didn't have to leave too early. I'd go again. Great for the tourists. ( I live here. :)
Nice Place to Stay – The House of Blues Hotel was a nice place to stay. The room wasn't too big, but it was very clean. The bed comfortable- with down comforter and pillows. The bathroom was very clean. The view wasn't good, but the location was wonderful. It is within walking distance to everything. (just don't ask the staff for directions to anywhere y ou want to go because they give the wrong directions-you are better off looking at the map yourself. They do have a gym but you have to pay $10 to get in, which isn't right if you are a guest at the hotel. The KazBar was wonderful and romantic. The Bin36 restaurant had some great food, but was very noisy. The House of Blues restaurant/bar is right across the street and worth visiting just to check it out, but you are better off eating elsewhere.
friendly people! – I travel all over, and I've never come across a friendlier staff than this one. My check-in was great and the concierge helped my anniversary dinner be PERFECT!!! The decor of the rooms is fun and funky, the Kazbar is just so cozy and intimate; it really helps that they have awesome bartenders! My husband and I had such a great time that we'll be back SOON.
Sweet Home Chicago – It was great!!! The hotel was just awsome. The bathroom was huge and the beds had down comforters. There are just so many extras with the room that make it a good value. It's close to everything and easy to get to. The best place to stay in Chicago. It's family oriented if your children and parents are open minded.
GROOOVVVYYY!! – Rarely do you visit a hotel where the staff remembers your name, regardless if you have stayed once or 20 times. The staff makes this hotel worth the visit. The KazBar does not feel, in the least, like a "hotel bar" and certainly is one of the only bars with comfortable couches! (check out the Sin Den)...overall, very groovy place and well worth the trip. Besides the fun stuff, they have the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in and I am trying to track down how to get one for myself.
