"Great location, average rooms"
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 17, 2014
Sarah H | Kansas City, Missouri
The location was ideal for my recent business trip. It was close to nearby train stations and walking distance to the office I was visiting. We arrived late and were treated by friendly front desk staff, but found all area restaurants were closed and we ended up taking a cab to Greek Town for dinner. Not what we had hoped! Our room was spacious and beds comfortable. We were given a room on the second floor just around the corner from the breakfast area. The shades were not in working order and we woke up just before 6:00 to a bacon smell so strong it was difficult to go back to sleep. I would not recommend a stay on the second floor. At our request, we were moved to the 8th floor for our second night. Although identical, the second room was in great shape, the view was nice and it was very quiet. All in all, it was an average experience. I would look for something else in the area as I'm not sure it was a $250/night experience.

"Reasonable and Nice"

The hotel was clean, reasonably priced, had a good location, and included breakfast. We did not use the pool or other amenities but if they were as well kept as the room I am sure they would be satisfactory. La Quinta is a good choice for Chicago tourists.

"Great location and hotel, terrible customer service"
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 11, 2014

The location and the hotel itself was great! Loved the room- it was spacious, comfortable and clean. The breakfast was awesome- lots of variety (although it would be so much nicer if real dishes, cups and silverware were used--and much better for the environment!) My main issue with the hotel was the front desk staff who I found to be rude and unhelpful. I called the night before check out to request a late check out since I was traveling with small children and our flight was later in the afternoon. The woman I spoke with said I would need to call back in the morning but that a late check out could usually be accommodated around 1:00 or 1:30 and sometimes even later. When I went down in the morning to request the late check out, the man and woman (Amanda) working the front desk could not have been ruder. I explained the situation and he said "1:00". I said that the extra 30 min would be helpful and in the same rude tone he said "1:00". I asked if there was any flexibility and he said "1:00". At this point, the one word answers, sighs and eye rolls by him and Amanda were not appreciated. I noted that the woman I spoke with the previous night made it seem like there was a bit more flexibility and again he said "1:00". Amanda stated that they find out from housekeeping when late checks out can be, which I understand but neither of them made any calls or asks to housekeeping while I was standing there. They were both rude and not accommodating at all. I told them both that I would appreciate all employees getting on the same page and they both just stared at me. I completely understand if 1:00 is the policy. If that is the case, then I believe that all front desk staff need to be informed (i.e.: the woman I spoke with in the evening) and all front desk staff need to review basic courtesy when dealing with customer requests. A simple explanation about the policy and why would have gone a lot further in my book than a reiteration of the time "1:00" said with attitude. This interaction really tainted my otherwise excellent stay.

Very pleased with the hospitality in this hotel. They workers greeted as you came in and out. The breakfast was amazing so if traveling with kids plenty of options and great service. It is also in a great location if you are going for travel.
