U.S. News Review

One of the Omni Chicago Hotel's main selling points is its location: Smack dab in the middle of the Magnificent Mile, it's surrounded by some of the city's best restaurants and things to do. According to recent visitors, the hotel itself isn't too shabby, either. This Omni property houses 347 guest suites with fully stocked refreshment centers, two flat-screen TVs, wet bars and minifridges (on request). The spacious floor plans and sleeper sofas can make this hotel a good choice for families and other large groups. But some guests are wary of all the incidental charges, like $67 a day for valet parking and about $10 a day for Internet access in your room. Still, a stay here offers benefits like access to an indoor swimming pool (a rarity in big-city hotels), two rooftop sun decks and a fitness center. Meanwhile, the Omni Chicago caters to its various clientele with amenities like a 24-hour business center and the complimentary Omni Sensational Kids Program. The hotel also features the 676 Restaurant & Bar, which serves fresh Midwest American cuisine. But for most guests, the best part about this hotel is its affordable price tag, which is made even sweeter for members of the Omni Select Guest rewards program.

Critic Reviews

Fodor's

“It's a good choice for extended stays or visitors traveling with kids — most rooms have pull-out couches and at check-in young travelers receive a backpack with a goodie bag and games and books to keep.”

Forbes

“All of the 347 guest rooms are suites with pullout sofas and classic French doors separating the bedrooms from the living areas — great for those traveling with friends or family. ”

Lonely Planet

“Each room is really two. French doors connect the bedroom with the sitting area; both are decked out in rich colors and cherrywood. ”
