    I loved the location and history of this hotel. It wasn’t fancy but it was clean and the bed was very comfortable.

    I really wish they had water available in the lobby. They had containers out there but they never had water in them at all for the three days we were there.

    Big spacious rooms - very high ceilings and old decor with modern furnishings and very comfy beds Lovely hotel even though we found out it was the most haunted in Illinois

    It was the middle of August so the weather was hot but had to turn the ac off as soon as we got in the room as it was like a freezer, and no controls to have any heat. Also most of the hotel was the same - had to wear a jumper in the restaurant as it was so cold

    We loved the location, really close to Millenium Park! It was confortable and people was really nice! People was really nice!

    We had issues with the bathroom, it is really old and they had to fix it. Also the food service was poor, it was better to walk around and grab something!

Congress Plaza Hotel is located across from Grant Park, which overlooks Lake Michigan, and is about 30 minutes away from O’Hare International Airport. It's walking or driving distance from many major Chicago landmarks, including Shedd Aquarium, Navy Pier, Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, and Magnificent Mile.

There are smoking and non-smoking rooms available, and all have complimentary WiFi access.

The 24-hour fitness center can set pulses racing, while the on-site barbershop, shoeshine, and same-day dry cleaning services can help prepare guests for an important meeting or a special night out. A full-service business center is ideal for sending or retrieving documents, and the charming gift shop offers one-stop shopping for special Chicago souvenirs. The hotel's Gold Room has been an in-demand spot for holding dream weddings for over a century.
