Hotels Series: Homewood Suites and Hampton Inn by Hilton

On our next trip around Chicago, we wound up on the front entrance of a new, unique, Hilton property that is just 2 weeks old. Located at 118 N. Jefferson in the West Loop is the new Homewood Suites and Hampton Inn. Did we say the Homewood Suites AND Hampton Inn? Yes, yes we did. This is a quite popular concept that has been embraced by the Hilton brand.

When you walk into the hotel, you are greeted by warm faces and directed to the 4th floor where you will find the lobbies of both hotels. To the left, you find the Hampton Inn and to the right, you find the Homewood Suites.


The Hampton Inn has a great modern feel to it with spacious rooms and beautiful West Loop views. They offer a wide range of room types, ranging from 2 Queen beds to a King overlooking the skyline. In addition to the spacious rooms, they offer a wide range of amenities.

  • Free complimentary breakfast
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • A lovely pool overlooking the skyline and public terrace
  • A top of-the-line fitness center
  • Room service
  • A convenient 24-hour pantry market

On the other hand, the Homewood Suites is located on right side of the hotel. Homewood Suites attract more business and extended stay guests, but is a great option if you are looking for more spacious rooms as they offer kitchens in each room. In addition to the spacious rooms, they have many of the same amenities that the Hampton Inn has. They have a great business center with a fax machine, printer, photo copying service, and even AV equipment rental.


Another great feature about these hotels is the distance to and from Gallery 1028. It is just a 10-minute car ride away from our beautiful venue, which will come in handy if you are transporting guests between locations!

Typically, hotels have a certain attrition rate when they allow for room blocks, but the Homewood Suites and Hampton Inn in the West Loop offer attrition rates based on the size of the group and time of the year to make sure everything is a great fit for the client.

If you are looking for hotels in the West Loop, I highly recommend that you take a peek at the brand new Homewood Suites and Hampton Inn.
