The Red Roof Inn hotel in downtown Chicago is situated just one block east of Michigan Avenue, better known as the Magnificent Mile, seven blocks from Water Tower Place and the John Hancock building, and in close proximity to beautiful Lake Michigan. At this superb downtown location, you are only st...

Sure, the accommodations are cookie-cutter (the chain's red-and-purple color scheme is a bit uninspired), but there's no beating the low rates for the right-off-the-Mag-Mile location. There's history here, too; the hotel was formerly the Richmont, which from 1987 to 1990 was the holder of one of the...

This is your best bet for the lowest-priced lodgings in downtown Chicago. The location is the main selling point: right off the Magnificent Mile (and within blocks of the Ritz-Carlton and Peninsula, where rooms will cost you at least three times as much). The guest rooms are stark and small, but new...

Not Impressed - user review
Having stayed in some of your other properties, I am surprised as to the condition and atmosphere I found in your Chicago location. The price was fair for the location however the small unclean quarters make me feel that I would be better served to pay more somewhere else in order to feel healthy. T...

Rooms are small, but clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. Location is superb. The lobby, though small, served us well in meeting family staying in a nearby hotel.

It is a cheap solution to live on Michigan Ave - user review
The hotel has a GREAT location... you can't beat that. A lot of restraunts to eat (a variety of food options from dunkin to mexican, indian, subway...) It is walking distance from Hancock and 5 blocks from the Tribune bldg (the heart of downtown) Except for the location, the hotel is nothing great. ...

The windows don't open, the shower curtain smelled sour, the room air smelled like disinfectant, the decor is falling off the wall, the in room internet service was not connecting throughout the whole w...

Good location, not much else - user review
The rooms were small, not dirty, but grungy. There was a lot of street noise, but that's to be expected. It was a bit further from the CTA than I would like, but not terribly far. If you're used to ritzier places, you'll definitely want to avoid this place, but if you're a student or budget traveler...

Great option for the price - user review
This hotel is right in the middle of the action. If you don't plan on spending a lot of time in the room, this is a great option because while the rooms are small, they are clean, the beds are comfortable, and you are in the midst of great food and shopping. I wil...

Good hotel for a good price - user review
With most every other hotel sold out or 300 , this hotel offered the location and the price. It's a true 2 star hotel. It was mostly clean, the staff was pretty helpful, but it was a little noisy with a hospital a block away ambulance sirens through the night. If value is what you're looking for thi...

This is a great hotel for anyone not spending time in their room, but enjoying the city. The rooms are small and there is no parking within a couple blocks. The valet was reasonably priced, so that was not too much of a problem. Location was great! A short cab ride to anywhere in the city. Great hot...

This would be a good place to stay for young travelers who want a break from youth hostels. In fact, there seemed to be a lot of travelers who fit this category staying at the hotel. My daughter and I felt out of place. The halls were fairly noisy, our room very small and cramped, and our room gave ...
