Hilton Garden Inn North Loop, Chicago


We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn North Loop, Chicago. It is a new hotel as it had just opened for 2 weeks when we called them to clarify it’s location in early August. The reason we called is when we searched for Hilton Garden Inn, the one on Grand Avenue kept coming up and the address of the one we booked is on East Wacker Place.

We got off the Blue Line at Clark/Lake St. It’s just 7 minutes walk to Hilton Garden Inn, North Loop.

When we checked in, we were given a room with 1 King Bed instead of two Queen Bed on our booking. We were told that there is no two bed room left for the day and they will move us when one is available. We were just puzzling how to fit the three of us on a King size bed.

Luckily, before even we unload our luggage, we got a call from the reception that someone cancelled their booking and we got a two bed room. Whew!.

The room was quite pleasant. There is a working desk. It was not too roomy though.

The bathroom was quite roomy.

The tap was confusing. It took us a while to figure out the hot and cold setting.

There is no complimentary breakfast for our booking. However, there is a station at the lobby which serves coffee, tea and hot chocolate in the morning. In the afternoon, a welcoming cold drink is served.

There is even cookies during tea time.

The location of the hotel is great. It’s just steps from the Magnificent Mile and a short walk to the Millennium Park. Wifi is complimentary.
