Positive Reviews

Excellent location

Guests rave about the hotel's location, noting that many of the city's best restaurants are nearby, and the Magnificent Mile is just one block away. Navy Pier, the Art Institute, Millennium Park, and the Hancock Tower are within a healthy 10-20 minute walk, though there are many nearby connections with public transportation for those who would prefer a lift. The Red Line to Wrigley Field is just a few minutes away on foot.

Clean, comfortable rooms with a view

Most guests describe the rooms as sparkling clean, with comfortable beds and well equipped kitchens. Few fail to comment on the stunning views of the city and Lake Michigan from the upper floors, and everyone can enjoy a bird's eye look at the city from the rooftop indoor pool.

Friendly, knowledgeable staff

The front desk and valet staff receive rave reviews for their pleasant and professional customer service, with many guests appreciating their extensive knowledge of the area. Compliments also go to the chef: guests are generally pleased with the quality and variety on offer at the complimentary breakfast buffet.

Negative Reviews

Getting "old and tired"..

Guests often note that the Homewood Suites by Hilton Chicago-Downtown is an older building, and despite the best efforts of the housekeeping and maintenance staff, the rooms have an unmistakably "old and tired" feeling, with worn, dated furnishings, carpet, and bathroom fixtures.

Technical difficulties..

Several guests have found the Wi-Fi too slow or unreliable for their purposes. Others note that there are only two elevators for the 19-storey building, and the wait is particularly long when one is out of service.

The breakfast crowd..

Some guests find the breakfast area a bit too chaotic or crowded, even fairly early in the morning, and wish the seating area were a bit larger.
