Exceptional Service

We came to the city for a birthday weekend trip and had a great time. The stay at Homewood made it that much more enjoyable because they responded to our every need quickly and with excellent service. The room was clean and the kitchen and bathroom were great! The linens seemed a little dated but that would be my only complaint. The staff was 5 stars.

Take the double-decker trolley tour and for sure buy a one-week transit pass good for all buses, trains, subways, etc.

Good value

No real complaints about our stay. Kind of a no frills hotel. There's no real lobby or bar to hang out in, but the rooms were comfortable and clean. The pool was nice and the location was fantastic. We also had a great view (partial view of the river included) from our room on the 19th floor. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Great location

We were able to check in early. Room did not have much of a view, but was quiet and the location of the hotel is great. Full breakfast in morning, including to-go containers. We grabbed items from the breakfast, and toasted bagels in our suite, and used the microwave to heat up the rest. On the downside, only one bedside table with lamp, not enough room on the other side of the bed. Also, sink is outside the bathroom so if one person is sleeping, another person has to be quiet while getting ready in morning/at night.

There is a Jewel/Osco grocery story two blocks west. Very convenient for stocking your fridge, and for buying transit passes.
