                Great experience ”

                Best location for someone who wants to explore more of Downtown Chicago. Not so close from the O’hare airport. But this hotel is near all the famous landmarks, including the Bean and the parks, Navy Pier. Beautiful view from my room on the highest 9th floor. Nice staffs, good amenities. Recommended and will definitely stay here in the future when I come to visit again. Thank you!

                Best Western Grant Park”

                We came in by train (South Shore), and were let off literally across the street, and were within walking distance of all we wanted to see...Rooms were clean, staff were friendly
                an indoor pool would have been nice

                The hotel is well situated to transportation, if needed, but within walking distance of major attractions...You could see into Grant Park and Lake Michigan. The staff were friendly and helpful, even looking up addresses and hours of nearby restaurants and taverns. Housekeeping services were more than adequate. The elevator was loud, and a little scary.

                Decent rate, great location, clean.
                Walls aren't terribly thick.

                We rented a room here on New Year's Eve and got a great deal. We could easily see the fireworks from our window and it was an easy walk to just about anywhere we needed to go. I would definitely recommend this hotel and will probably stay here again next time we visit Chicago.

                Election Night at the Best Western Grant Park”

                Near Grant Park, close to downtown Chicago
                Needs updating

                The staff was the highlight. Maisha, the front desk person, was most helpful - even before we arrived - and remembered my name and specifics when I called the morning of. She volunteered that my room was ready for me - at 8:00 am - much to my surprise! The staff was friendly and helpful - even after I suffered a rather severe cut on my foot in their room. The rooms were nothing special - the couch was tattered - the amenities out-dated; but the proximity to the park and the loop was worth the trade-off. The rooms do not have Wi-fi - making computer access inconvenient...although they did provide two pc's in the lobby for public use. Overall - we tremendously enjoyed our stay - mostly because of the amazing timing of being in Chicago - on the lake front - the night Barack Obama was elected!!

                5 minutes to Rosevoolt station for red, orange & green line. Go downtown and Midway Airport at door steps. Hotel is spacious. Good for the price paid. Park and Michigan Lake is 10 min walk. Spring & Summer time will be even better.

                simple hotel at good location”

                You can reach the hotel with CTA but you have to do one transfer and walk appr. 5 minutes; bus station is in front of hotel; near park; near water; near aquarium and planetarium; a couple of museums are nearby too; free Internet.
                No fridge in room; pretty loud if neighbor is taking a shower or going to the loo; air condition is always running even if it's off and if you cover the air condition with the bed sheet it starts to smell; staff could be more friendly and more informed about general questions.

                Before we arrived at the hotel I double-checked with agoda if there will be any tax to be charged from the hotel. I got a confirmation that charges is included in hotel tax. One day before arrival I called the hotel directly to check if my reservation was known and if we had two beds as the meaning of double bed was unsure to me. The hotel confirmed my reservation and that two beds were in the room. On our arrival we have been greeted and checked in. The room was pretty small but we didn't want to stay in the room the whole day anyway. When asking how to get to Oakbrook mall or Stratford mall we have been told to go by cab as it was not possible to go by train or bus. We trusted the info and paid 50 usd to get to the first mall. When we wanted to go the the other mall we paid another 40 usd and found out later that there was a bus going to a Metra-station where a train was going to down-town Chicago....you can imagine we were quite unhappy with the info the hotel provided. Also when we asked for coin laundry they could not give any info., when asking how much a cab to airport would be they couldn't answer. What kind of a hotel is this?? For me these are standard questions which should be answered with ease. The nice thing was free Internet but that's about it. The location on south Michigan is pretty good if you want to go shopping on State street or north Michigan. State street is better for shopping. ask for special visitor card at Macy's and Bloomingdales so you can save 11% tax except for cosmetics and other selected items.

                Chicago on a budget!!”

                The Best Western Grant Park is a terrific value! The staff were great, the rooms clean and the bed was fantastic!
                No cons - we got exactly what we expected, a comfortable place to sleep and good value!

                It was a bit of a hike to central downtown but with all the sights along the way, we found it worth it. There is so much to do, museums, planetarium, Soldier Field and park system within a few blocks. Excellent restaurants within a couple of blocks and a great little wine bar around the corner. The free Tram system was a great feature as well and it came right into the hotel's area. The El was about 2 blocks away and Union Station cost $10 for a cab. The cafe next door was very handy and reasonable.

                Lack of facilities. Hopefully they have a basic room needs like microwave and fridge. We woke up in the middle of the night with people arguing outside our room. We can hear people yelling from the outside. You can smell inside the room that someone is smoking weeds around (from the different room I guess) which is such an annoying thing for us since we have a 5mos. Baby. Style and cleanliness of the room was okay other than the issues we had. No exclusive hotel parking was such a big disappointment too!

                inexpensive, nice view onto Lake Michigan from 1/4 of the rooms

                Clearly: this hotel needs re-modeling. The rooms are clean, but old. The Lobby is out-dated. The restaurant is not good, the personnel just does the job, no more no less. Inexpensive, but you realize why. But dont get me wrong: The hotel location is great, and everything is clean. However. Best Western needs to invest heavily to make me coming back.
