Very dated hotel that has a slight haunted vibe. Wouldn't stay there again but on a good note it was close to many Chicago attractions. Our first room was disgusting and we had to ask to be moved to another room. The beds were comfortable but the bathtub filled up with water when I showered. Glad I expeirenced it, but won't be staying again.

Classic Comfort, money spent = a great experience

Posted 31-Aug-2015
Hotels in the city are always pricey. I must say that the money I spent came back through the entire experience at the hotel. It's appealing to the eye inside and out of the room, staff was friendly and helpful, great location, the room came with a safe, an iron, a sewing kit, soaps, vanity kit, coffee stuff, Congress Plaza postcards, quality hotel towels, a hair dryer, and for an extra $10/night you can get a quality mini-fridge. I didn't ask but I bet a microwave is an option. Not to mention there is a bar downstairs by the currently being renovated lobby area. Awesome stuff

University Center move in

Posted 31-Aug-2015
Pros: Location
Cons: TV was kid of fuzzy
Location: Near Art Institute, DePaul Loop Campus, Robert Morris Univ, Roosevelt Univ, Columbia College Chicago, etc.
Great location for easy access to the University Center where students from DePaul, Columbia College, Robert Morris and Roosevelt University all share the same building. The Congress is a beautiful old hotel with character right on South Michigan Avenue.

Nobles Hotel in Top-Lage

Posted 30-Aug-2015
Pros: Unser Blick auf die Chicagoer Skyline vom Zimmerfenster aus hat uns am Besten gefallen - bei Tag und bei Nacht ein schöner Ausblick.
Cons: In unserem Stockwerk war ein sehr starker Duft nach Reinigungsmitteln. Mehr Frischluft wäre da wohl angebracht.
Location: Das Hotel ist am südlichen Rand vom Stadtzentrum und direkt am Park. Somit liegt es auf halber Strecke zwischen Art Institute und Museum Campus.
Beim betreten des mit Marmor und dunklen Edelhölzern verkleideten Lobbys weiß man, dass man nicht in irgend ein Allerwelts-Ketten-Hotel eincheckt. Das freundliche Personal hilft bei allen Belangen gerne und kompetent. Das Essen in den zwei Hotelrestaurants ist lecker und preislich angemessen für die Lage. Es ist ein alt-ehrwürdiges Etablissement mit Geschichte und Tradition. Die Lage ist fantastisch, direkt gegenüber Grant Park, dem sogenannten "Vorgarten der Stadt" mit Blick auf Buckingham Fountain. Bus- und Hochbahnhaltestellen sind in Hotelnähe, aber ein Taxi bekommt man immer am Haupteingang. Vieles kann aber auch leicht zu Fuss erreicht werden. Die Gegend ist sicher und sauber.

Das Hotel ist renovierungsbedürftig

Posted 29-Aug-2015
Pros: Die Lage
Cons: RENOVIEREN
Location: Im Stadt Zentrum. Gut für einen Wochenendtrip um die wichtigsten Sehenswürdigkeiten zu sehen.
Das Hotel ist sehr groß und alt. Es ist auf jeden Fall renovierungsbedürftig! Wir haben zum Glück das Zimmer wechseln können. Das erste Zimmer hat gestunken, war recht alt und kapput. Außerdem war es dreckig. Unser zweites Zimmer war renoviert (neue Betten, die Wand einmal gestrichen). Nächstes Mal werden wir ein etwas teureres Hotel buchen, sind dann aber glücklicher. Der einzige Pluspunkt ist die gute Lage.

Great location and clean!

Posted 29-Aug-2015
Great downtown location. Located directly across the street from Grant Park. Rooms need new paint and wallpaper because they have gorgeous woodworking and doors! All conveniences needed in the hotel including a concierge.
