How to Get There
Horrible cable, tv remote ancient. Polyester bedspread, yuck. Was told could charge to room at restaurant, server at restaurant told me it didn’t work and I heard the room charge story told to other guests at the desk. App didn’t work with Expedia. Bad! Room too small. WiFi not secure. Hotel does not coordinate well with Expedia. As I was checking out, the desk told me I had a reservation to check in the same day I was checking out. Front desk didn’t seem to know what was going on.
I’ve chosen to be a repeat customer because I think this is a great hotel. The front desk staff is wonderful! They do their absolute best to ensure your questions are answered and your concerns quelled, and they’re available 24 hours. No bathtubs, but great showers.
The location in Central Loop is perfect for walking to Willis Tower, Magnificent Mile and Millennium Park as well as to such fun areas as Shedd Aquarium, Field Museum, the Museum of Science & History, the Art Institute, and Navy Pier. The CIBC Theatre is about 3 blocks (just saw “Hamilton” there). Post office is across the street from CQ as is a Bank of America; Starbucks is next door to the hotel; in case you buy too many goodies to fit into your suitcase, UPS is around the corner. There also are historic buildings in the area and a 2 story Target super center. There are several convenient Walgreen’s and CVS’s. Finally, the Blue Line is an easy couple of blocks from the Monroe stop. I’ve taken the 40 minute ride from O’Hare ($5.00 vs 30.00+ for cab or Uber) to the hotel and the return ride to the a/p ($3.00). It’s clean and nicer than sitting in a car for about the same length of time, fighting traffic.
The restaurant Elephant & Castle has its own entrance for CQ guests. Haven’t had a bad breakfast, lunch, or dinner! And the prices are reasonable. For a change, there are several other quick serve as well as nice restaurants nearby (again, great location).
A CQ weekday social hour treats guests to wine and light hors d’oeuvres. It’s held in the private lounge that guests can access anytime with their room key. It also has a couple of small meeting rooms (I think reservations are needed for those). The other meeting rooms are elsewhere in the hotel.
There are laundry facilities and valet parking services. Never been to the work-out room, but there’s a yoga mat in your closet. Take advantage of the free filtered water and reusable bottles found outside every elevator on guest floors before beginning your meeting, adventure, or just calling it a day.
This is a hotel where many businesses hold conferences, but it’s also perfect for folks who want to explore the Loop. Rooms have nice work areas, desk lamps, and lots of charger stations. Take advantage of the free filtered water and reusable bottles found outside every elevator on guest floors before beginning your meeting, adventure, or just calling it a day.
If you’re looking for a great hotel in Chicago, do give CQ a chance.
Great location near the heart of Chicago with amazing rooms and a professional staff! The hotel made our stay in the city very enjoyable and we were able to get great advice from the front desk. Highly recommended.
All tourist destination within walking distance. Right next block to Wills / Sears Tower. Nice restaurants near by. The hotel is clean and neat. Has all that one may need while traveling. Very friendly staff that goes extra miles to help customers. For example, Bill Burrage helped us with shower in the Gym when we had checked out and were there to collect our luggage. I have observed other members help tourist with deals on bus tour, boat rides and entry to Wills Towers. Excellent experience!!
This hotel is part of Club Quarters network and as such caters to business travelers and business traveler needs. The check-in was fast and efficient. The property itself is not very impressive or aesthetically attractive. Maybe because my room was on 5th floor I had no view whatsoever. In fact because of some unsightly utilities outside of this level, the windows were intentionally painted over to block the ugly sight. I really did not care to have my windows view intentionally blocked. The social hour was ok, something you can expect from a Club Quarters hotel. The ironing board, purified drinking water refills and other accessories are available in common areas not in your room, which is efficient, I guess. The room was pretty minimalist and not too welcoming. Not the type of room you are looking forward going to after day in office (and maybe that's the idea). The bathroom was tiny and toiletries are of 2-star hotel quality. They also have a service where you can store your luggage at the hotel for extended period if you are repeat visitor. The uber ride from/to airport around $45. There is a restaurant in the same building, which I did not try because options were uninspiring. But after office hours the immediate nearby area is pretty much gastronomical wasteland, so this might be your only option after 8pm.
