I stayed at the Congress Plaza for two nights on my first visit to Chicago. The hotel was nice. The front desk was friendly. Although the hotel was old our room was clean and comfortable. My only complaint would be Raphael's Restaurant. It is a very small place with a limited menu. I paid $75 for a glass of wine...steak...
