The La Quinta Inn & Suites Chicago Downtown features a contemporary design that is both functional and environmentally friendly. This location participates in the city's Green Roof Program. Green roofs help keep cities healthy and help conserve energy because they work to lower surrounding urban heat temperatures. Green roofs also help reduce storm water runoff, improve water quality and create conditions for longer-lasting roof systems.
The Chicago Downtown location also employs "district cooling", an innovative system that significantly reduces our carbon footprint by eliminating the need for legacy equipment such as boilers and a central plant located at the property. This also helps to create a more energy-efficient and well-maintained distribution network.

My husband and I stayed at La Quinta Downtown Chicago from Friday to Sunday and we live three hours away. When I got home, I realized I had left my iPad there and when we called, they had found it and since we lived three hours, they agreed to overnight it back to me and bill me. I was fine with that as I just wanted it back soon and really didn't want to go all the way back to get it. The room we stayed in was fantastic and the staff was very nice and friendly. I would recommend this hotel to anyone! Thank you so much La Quinta Downtown Chicago for a very pleasant stay and for returning my iPad so promptly.

La Quinta Inn and Suites on 1 South Franklin Street in Chicago was a pleasant surprise. It was the first time I stayed there and I found that the beautiful pictures on the web site actually matched the way the room and hotel looked. The rooms were roomy and pleasant, beautifully updated and modern, with wonderful amenities all around.
Located on the second floor, the breakfast was very complete with lots of options, many of them healthy. Or, you can splurge and have waffles and lots of sweets too if you like.
About my only complaint was that the coffee in the room and at breakfast was so so. I don't know why. They offered nice new single serving coffee machines, but when it came right down to it, it didn't taste that great. Not to worry, there are wonderful coffee bars located nearby anyway.
I will be returning here because of the value for the money and the proximity to my work office site.
Clean room, firm bed and for $100 all in and by the loop. What more could you ask for? I will definitely be back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My wife and I were in town for the Lyric Opera and picked the La Quinta due to its proximity to the Opera House. I am glad we did, because on a cold February night it was nice to only walk a block and crawl into bed after a late ending show. The room was large for a downtown hotel, very clean, comfortable and modern, although it was definitely geared more toward the business traveler. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the continental breakfast was better than most. That part of the loop can be a bit of a desert on the weekends, but we didn't have to walk to far to find good dining and a walk to the Art Institute the next day. I would stay again for sure.
Too many things to say, but here it is in a nutshell! Great rooms, super fast wifi, 3 coffee shops within a five minute walk. Close to trains and buses..rooms were clean, modern and priced right. I have stayed in the elite downtown Chicago hotels and paid a premium, and had a less then great experience. This is the place I'll be when in Chicago. lastly, they had one of the best 'free' breakfasts that I've had.
