The HGI on Wacker did not disappoint once again. It is one of the quieter hotels in the city and yet has a great location, close to restaurants, shopping, lake… The staff is terrific at answering questions, offering support and serving with a smile. Have stayed here at least 20 times for business and will continue to come back with family.

Hotel's Favorite
We were extremely satisfied with our stay at the lovely Hilton Garden Inn Riverwalk. It was immaculately clean, and centrally located within walking distance of many of the attractions downtown. We were only there one night (in town to go to Wrigley Field) so we didn’t get to do a lot, and we had to cram in as much sightseeing as we could with our limited time. The location of the Hilton Garden Inn made that very doable! We also want to thank the helpful and courteous staff at the front desk. From restaurant recommendations, to Blue Line directions (he even went to the trouble of highlighting the walking route on a map for us!!), Joshua S is a top notch employee. Thank you again, Joshua! We really appreciated all your help!

Very comfortable room and good shower. Centrally located to all major attractions and venues. Staff were very helpful and the included breakfast was great. There is also a small dinner menu available, which was excellent value. Would highly recommend for a visit to Chicago

This HGI's location is excellent... steps from the Magnificent Mile, dining, theatre, Grant Park, and businesses. I stay in downtown Chicago often, but had never stayed here before -- it's walking distance to my office and a client so I decided to give it a try this trip. There's lots of hotel options available at varying price points and I can say, that while the price was right, I'll look for other properties in the future. The room I had was ok -- not super big, but accommodating for one person, clean, and everything appeared to be in order. I didn't get a great night sleep -- not sure it was the bed or me, but was challenged to sleep well. The service at the restaurant was not great. Only one person waiting tables in the evening and in the morning, and kitchen staff seemed slow. A couple who ordered an evening meal, got up and left as it was taking forever for them to get their food. It took my food awhile to arrive as well --- longer than it should have for the handful of customers dining. My meal was decent for the price. The morning service was worse -- one person waiting on tables, lots of customers, which means the one person waiting tables was less than attentive. I ordered orange juice, never got it, couldn't wait any longer for my check so got up to check out and the front desk had to go get the restaurant check. My waffle was not great -- tough and flavorless. The Hilton Food and Beverage Credit is not worth it -- you can't eat lunch, breakfast, or dinner, let alone get a beverage for $10/day in Chicago. The wifi seemed to be a challenge and I was sometimes dumped off or had to log back in. I didn't use any other services (parking, valet). Overall, I've had better experiences at other hotels and while I appreciated checking out this place, I'll likely avoid it in the future. The one great thing it has going for it is location.

My and my partner's visit went smoothly. But we saw some of the workers striking against the hotel on our way out. I hope those workers got what they were protesting about. If I had known the hotel was treating their workers unfairly I would not have booked a room there.

Good location but it ends there. Im a HHD, Hilton Diamond, but they gave me zero recognition. Hardly said welcome when I arrived and of course didnt ask how my stay had been when I checked out. But the location is great! I could come back only because of that. Whatever you put in the fridge turns i to ice within two hours.

I had a great stay here although it was just for a day. Great accommodations. The staff was pretty nice and kind. Valet took care of us. This is a hotel I would come back to stay at whenever I am in Chicago. I only wish my stay was a lot longer.

Stayed one night after a long haul. Room was fine for my needs. The bed was comfortable, the pillows could have been softer but you can't please everyone. The staff were really good and I felt went out of their way to assist. The location is excellent.

It was a good stay in the begging of July. As Hilton honors members we stayed in a very high floor over looking Chicago River. This view was the highlight of it all. We got a king size bedroom, not as spacious room, but enough for 2 nights. Room was clean, but overall hotel could do some renovation. Location is amazing, perfect if you plan to spend time to walk along the river and enjoy dining out. Tip about parking: there is a public parking almost in front of the hotel which is not theirs. You need to go to the hotel front desk and scan their garage code, the garage building is not that far (less than 300 meters) and serve a few hotels. Parking in Chicago is expensive, but you can self park, go in and out as much as you like. Very convenient .

We had a nice stay at the Hilton Garden Inn Chicago Downtown Riverwalk. Because of its excellent location we were able to fit in some fun during a business trip to Chicago. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff was friendly. It is located close to many popular tourist sites and there are multiple restaurant options nearby. Would definitely stay here again because of its excellent value.
