Ideal location”
Beautiful hotel with a nice mix of old and new. Room was very nice with a comfortable bed and several pillow choices. Our stay was quiet and relaxing. Staff was friendly and helpful. I did not care for the shampoo/ conditioner combo. Did not condition and scent was too masculine. The tv was rather small. Overall it was a wonderful stay and we loved that we were so close to most of the things we wanted to see and do. Would definitely stay again.

Decently priced”
You get what you pay for; although this was a great deal, I would NOT choose Congress Plaza as my first choice for when visiting Chicago, again. There is an attempt to provide good service and decent facilities; however, it is not executed to a level which I hoped or anticipated.

Location excellent”
The location is excellent especially for the money however the room quality was terrible. We’ve stayed here several times but not having a working ac, wasps in the window frame and a rocking toilet made for an unenjoyable sleep. Again, we stay here for the location. Museums, aquarium, Navy Pier, etc all outside the door and for a really good price.

old property with worst bathrooms.”
Room is OK but bathroom, room button are all old style. Bathroom tab are not working properly. The receptionist was worst and staff is not very co-operative Cleaning lady are good and supportive. I would give 3 star to this property because of location and cleaning guys. Not worth of spending 1000 $ for 3 days.

Congress Plaza”
This is an old Hotel and is located in the. Heart of Chicago. Easy to get to all the attraction. Its rooms are a good size with most things you would want. Although a fridge and microwave would be better if they were in the rooms. Otherwise it was our second stay there . and there are plenty of places to eat all very close

A classic haunt.”
First of all, it was a lot of fun. This place is also super haunted. It's very old and classic, but a little run down, but the rooms and linen were very clean. I suppose my only complaint would be security. There ARE security guards, quite a few, but it is incredibly easy to get in and walk around the various floors undetected. I would strongly advise putting the door chain on at night and not leaving any valuables in the room. The bar is okay, just okay , but the sandwich I had was excellent. It's a great classic hotel, in dire need of some sprucing up and detailing. And, yes it is VERY haunted.

Convenient Location”
The hotel is located in the centre of Chicago with easy access to sightseeing spots. The service and facilities are okay. However, the view of Michigan Lake from the room is a pleasant surprise. Not sure if it applies to all room though.
