One night stay
Traveled to Chicago for a one night stay. We wanted to book something close to Soldier Field as we were attending the Kenny Chesney concert. Decided on the Congress Plaza. Check in was a breeze, they even allowed us to check in an hour early! Our room was clean, my only suggestion is they need an extra blanket in the room. My husband and I both thought it was chilly even with the air turned off.

Good location, quiet, comfortable
When in Chicago, we are barely in the room, only needing a space to sleep and shower. This was the best deal we could find while being close to the Loop. It’s close to many attractions ( Buckingham Fountain, Museum Campus, Millennium Park). There’s a bus stop right outside the hotel and a 5 minute walk to a red line entrance. The hotel was old and dated, but very clean. Room was surprisingly big and had a walk in closet. Shower was a bit small, but overall bathroom was a good space. The bed and pillows are firm, which I prefer. Room was quiet

Wonderful location, however the AC was virtually non-existent and the room felt muggy and smelled like mildew. The beds were extremely firm, which my back did not appreciate. This hotel is in desperate need of updating.

Nice historic hotel.
It was alright. Glad I stayed at a piece of history. The registration desk could have directed me to the correct elevator better. That part was VERY confusing.

I would stay here again
Hotel and room looked and smelled clean despite being an old building; rooms had been recently updated except for some plumbing but all worked fine; bed firm with soft top and soft pillows; close to museums; one bad thing - parking was almost $50 for one night with no hotel discount.

Housekeeping comes every 2 days. Hotel is old and it shows/smells, we only used the hotel to shower and sleep as we were out and about during the day so it wasn’t a big deal. Great location if you want to experience the city!!!
