Excellent location, covered free parking, easy in and out, great hotel! Great price comparatively. Every time I've been in Chicago, I stay here. I've been in Chicago every couple of months since 2020, and highly recommend. Been very satisfied every time.

My husband and I stayed one night. When we arrived, I was not very happy. We had stayed at the hotel next door previously and had a TERRIBLE experience. So, I was not expecting a lot.

I was pleasantly surprised. All of the staff we encountered was very friendly.

The room was a nicely updated king (room 409). It was a corner room with a good view of the water. There were a few minor things like the heat being a little noisy and some barely noticeable wear and tear things in the room. The bed was a little on the hard side, which my husband appreciated and I did not. I love having lots of pillows and was pleased with the 6 pillows in the room!

The breakfast was good. We did the waffle station and my husband got scrambled eggs (I think there are real eggs and not those yucky powdered ones).

The FREE covered parking was a huge bonus for this location!!!

For the price, this was a very good hotel. I would totally stay here again.

We stayed at the Hyde Park, IL Best Western Plus for a birthday celebration. My entire family was here, the hotel room was big enough for the 6 of us (4 adults and 2 children) everyone slept comfortably, we brought an air mattress with us. The view of the lake front was phenomenal. The only problem we had was the bathroom had ants in it, we called the front desk and was advised they can clean the room but could not spray since we were staying in there.

We stayed in a suite and the room was big enough for our family, however the bed in the fold out couch is a little smaller than others we have used.

The room needed some remodeling as there were a number of holes in the wall and trim, and the bathroom was in need of a remodel.

The breakfast is still just a table of prepackaged food (muffins, nutribars, etc.) With no not food, juice, milk or anything else. They are still under COVID breakfast protocols, when many other hotels are serving a full continental breakfast again.

The biggest reason we would never go back to this hotel is the sound. The walls are thin enough to hear every conversation/TV through the walls. Even louder was the bathroom, as the register vent went directly to the room above, and you could hear them as if you were in the same room. We were on the 3rd floor, and there must have been an active toddler or group of gymnasts above us. They were blasting music and talking loudly until 3 AM.

Did you see the title?? FREE parking... in Chicago!! Could it be true? It is! It's a small lot so maybe drive your compact car rather than your Hummer, but it's free!

Check in was a breeze, room was clean and comfy. Breakfast was decent, plenty of options. Check out was super easy and the price was right!

Only complaint.... there must have been a herd of elephants in the room above us that stayed up late and got up early. I'm not sure if the floors are thin or if they were just extra stompy but it was definitely annoying.

Aside from the noise from above it was a good stay and I'd stay again and recommend for my friends and family to stay (just might ask for a room on the top floor so we can be the annoying ones!! 😄)

We stayed at the hotel during a very busy week as many other guests were there to drop their kids off at UChicago and so were we. We previously booked dates to return in October and we had issues with staff changing the price of our reservation after it was already booked. When I explained this to front desk agents Stephanie and Teresita, they informed me that the staff member I dealt with before is no longer with the hotel. Stephanie and Teresita went above and beyond to fix our October reservation at the rate that was guaranteed to us when we booked it in May. We really appreciate Stephanie and Teresita taking the time to fix our issues while being patient and polite, especially during a busy week as it had been a hassle for us. We are now excited about returning to the hotel in October for Parents weekend at UChicago.

The best part of our overnight stay was parking and breakfast included.
The room was clean- no foul or weird smells. The room was exactly as described. My only complaints would be the top linen provided was nothing more than a fabric shower curtain. So we were essentially left without a blanket. This became an issue because the heating unit kept blowing cold air even after being set to blow warm air. I didn’t complain to the hotel staff because we only stayed overnight and by the time we realized what was happening, it was too late.
The hotel is located near the museums of Hyde Park and restaurant and other cultural sites. We didn’t have a “lake view” room, however we did have a view of the lake. I would stay here again.

I'm working as a front line worker at a large hospital in town and needed a place for 1 day of sleep. Elected to stay here as it was close to work plus free parking.

The check in was unnecessarily long. The girl at the front desk didn't know what she was doing and I later found out that I was charged not once but twice.

The room itself was large and the bed was fine. Quiet and dark for us day sleepers.

Check out, I was reassured that the double charge would be shortly rectified. I've called 4 times with the assurance that it would be fixed. I called twice tonight and the girl who screwed up my bill hung up on me twice. Not a mere coincidence at this point.

Buyer beware. If this is what they do for someone working Frontline after an 12 hour shift working in a covid icu imagine what they could do to you.

Nothing but the utmost contempt for these scammers.

How low can one go?

Thanks for letting us know. In looking up your account we have not charged your account twice. You Bank has held funds based on our original check in process for your intended stay. We have released any hold on any funds the morning you checked out. Why your bank has not released your funds back to you is a question that they will have to answer. No Scam here just an hones hotel operator who does take care of our guests. Thanks.

We are big Best Western customers as they fit our needs well. This Best Western Plus was nice, clean, and had a great lake view. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It's not too far from the downtown area, it would have been nice to be a bit closer in, however you pay a huge premium for that, so it was well worth the 10 minute drive to save several hundreds of dollars.

Parking in the garage is a bit tough to navigate, but there is plenty of free parking. My only complaints are that the water pressure in the shower was horrible, and the free breakfast is not great, even by free continental breakfast standards. There is fruit, yogurt, cold cereal (mostly the sugary kids cereals, and Rice Krispies), and prepackaged muffins and pastries. No croissants, bagels, or bread.

It's a good place to stay in Chicago if you want to save some money.

I was about to book and also, based on what I felt are pretty rude responses from whoever is replying to the posts on behalf of la Quinta, I would never stay here. If they’re that rude in a public forum, god help you with the staff when you actually stay there. They just lost another customer because of this. Or rather, a customer was saved.
Answer from EA4900
The shuttle is on a schedule throughout the day going either downtown every 4 hours or over to the university every few hours. It runs from 8:30am till 6:30 pm.
