Comfort Suites Michigan Avenue/Loop –The verdict…
You can book the Comfort Suites for a one-night stay, but the best way to take advantage of the accommodations is to stay for an extended period. For a relatively affordable price, you can really move into the city, cook in your own kitchen, and do laundry in your in-suite washer/dryer. All the while, take advantage of your standard hotel amenities, like daily room service and free WiFi.
