Good hotel”

If you are a traveller who is moving in to another state with lots of things in your car and stopped by Chicago, the location of the hotel is a safe place. Near to safe parking garages. Location is at the Uptown and if you like to walk, it is a little bit far from tourist attractions. Staff were nice and hotel is clean. Near to stores and restaurants as well.

Nice area within walking distance ”

The hotel was clean and the staff was wonderful however, the bathroom was super small with a gas station toilet you use your foot to flush. I can deal with the platform bed but the bathroom would make me choose a different hotel altogether. The value for what we paid is definitely there but the bathroom leaves me totally put off

The check in process was a little slow. Check in was at 3, we arrived a little after 3 and there were no rooms available yet. This comes after wandering around the city for a few hours because our train arrived at 1230, we knew it would be to early to Check in. They did let us store our luggage while we waited which was nice. The lady at the counter was super nice and comped us a drink. The room was very plain and small. We did have an issue with the a/c but it was resolved quickly. The bar service was terribly slow. We waited for 30 minutes for someone to take our order,20 more minutes for a drink and never could get her to come back so we could pay and leave. We ended up putting money on the table and walking out. All in all a good visit and an fantastic location.

Luxurious stay”

Pros - clean, beautiful, luxurious, room near Rush Street and delicious restaurants provided umbrellas during a heavy rainfall Cons - no coffee in the room, water was $4 a bottle, and an unnecessarily huge selection of hard liquor instead Waited too long for an elevator because they were only two and they were too small and already full Walls are thin and we could hear someone snoring next door during the middle of the night and people talking and kids crying late at night Overall, the room is beautiful and luxurious, and the neighborhood is residential, gorgeous and calm. You can reach popular establishments within a five minute walk. I recommend that you bring earplugs and water bottles.

Great visit, great location to Lake Michigan, Old Town...more of a neighborhood feel.”

Hotel staff was excellent especially Natalie at the front desk, so helpful, sweet and kind. Only weird thing was, hotel charges your credit card 100.00 a day for incidentals and then reimburses your card the balance of the 100.00 in 5-7 business days.

A Bit Tired”

The staff is excellent and we enjoyed the location. The lobby is beautiful and there are many beautiful design elements. That said, the room was a bit tired. We had a damaged ceiling, chipping paint and missing veneer from much of the furniture. The concept is strong but the Ambassador needs a refresh.
