Located in lively Boystown, heart of Chicago’s LGBT community, and close to restaurants and bars
City Suites Hotel is located in Boystown, the heart of Chicago’s LGBT scene, amid restaurants, shops and bars. Most of Chicago’s top tourist attractions are a 20-minute subway ride away, but there Red line is right next to the hotel and there are several bus stops nearby. This is also a great location for baseball fans: Wrigley Field is a 13-minute walk away.
Rooms are reasonably large (except for for the Standard Queen) and come with quality amenities (42-inch flat-screen TVs with premium channels; free Wi-Fi; mini-bar; toiletries), but the decor is nothing special and certain rooms get noise from the subway running next to the hotel. Also, some suites only have a low wall dividing the bedroom from the living area, so the lack of privacy could be an issue. Some feature pull-out sofas, wet bars, abd microwaves.
A free pass for a local gym, free Wi-Fi, and other nice freebies, but no other features
This 45-room hotel is located in lively Boystown, close to shops, restaurants and bars, and right next to the subway. (Some rooms get noise from the elevated train tracks.) Standard rooms are small, the decor is bland, and the hotel has zero features (no restaurant, no business center, and no fitness center). But 42-inch flat-screen TVs in every room, spacious suites with microwaves and mini-fridges, free Wi-Fi and a free continental breakfast make it a fine choice for the price. If you'd rather be closer to the tourist action, consider the slightly more expensive Millennium Knickerbocker.
