Congress Hotel, downtown Chicago

Location, employees and grandure of the hotel

We had a very good time at the Plaza Hotel. While it is an old hotel, it is kept in nice condition and the employees were very friendly. The room was good with a great king bed. Only complaints are - the rooms do not have their own temperature controls. We found the room too warm and had to get a fan from the front desk and open the windows. The main restaurant wasn't open during the week, so we ate at the other hotel restaurant one night and the food wasn't very good. Also, there are walls on the main floor, back out of the main lobby area, that could use some paint. For the price,it was a good deal and we would return.

Home at last!

Bed & Pillow! Staff assistance! Location!

We were so happy that the booking company was able to change our reservation by a day because our flight to the US was delayed a day! Staff were welcoming and helpful. It was wonderful to have an elevator and a comfortable bed with four pillows - after weeks without either!

great location but room rate is not worth

location,early check in and cleanliness
6
I can say that my stay at the hotel is not as worthy as i expected. I think the rate is too much to think that NO breakfast is included and Wifi is only allowed for one gadget per room,you need to pay for the next one. The receptionist is not approachable and welcoming at all,i didn't got her name but she is d lady with d black curly hair,a little bit chubby. She is not the one who assist us for check in but she is the first person we encounter to ask if we can check in already and she just said with a plain face that NO bcoz earliest check in is 12pm. Definitely one of the worst welcoming we got. The room is so basic and need renovation,the toilet bowl is not in its proper condition,the soda dispenser is not working in our floor (5th). Maybe the hotel is big thats why there are so many details that has not given proper attention. On the other hand,the location is great though..accross is Grant Park,walking distance to Michigan Ave..We were also able to check in early. Our check out receptionist is a way lot better,if i remember it right her name is Francine.
