The Staff at the Carlton Inn are all superb. - friendly - accommodating - resourceful At first I was suspicious as to why they went above and beyond the standard. No ulterior motives; truly sincere and they obviously love working for this Hotel. Pick up and drop off, close to the orange line to the LOOP, convenient and extremely affordable....

Great hotel at a great price! I've stayed in more modern hotels, but the Carlton Midway was clean and comfortable. Kudos must go to Gary and his staff, their greatest asset. Everyone was so helpful and accomodating. Need early check-in or late check-out? No problem! Need directions? No problem! They'll find it online for you and print the map. They...

A great value in Chicago. rather than stay downtown, pay exhorbitant prices and then still be charged an extra $25 a night to park the car we opted to stay at the Carlton.
