The main lobby and bar were beautiful and relaxing areas and the hotel is well maintained and clean. Rooms and bathroom were very small and the building is definitely an older building. That being said, the interiors were clean and well taken care of, and the common areas were very well kept and beautiful.
Walk into the grand lobby and you feel like you're part of Chicago history. The rooms are a little small.
The check in was smooth and easy. Our attendant answered all of our questions and made great suggestions for food and activities. I will say, i had the BEST caramel macchiato at the Starbucks that is in this hotel. I told the barista then, and i'm saying it again now, it was hands down the best! The bed seemed really firm which is unusual for hotels, usually they are plush.
We arrived early and tried to check in.Were advised room not ready, but in a hour and we were being upgraded. Two hours later that room was gone, but we could wait for the upgraded room or take our confirmed room (smaller,etc) then.Decided to wait on 23rd floor where the upgraded room was located--very pleasant but took another 40 minutes. It was god to wait and worth it but,.........................., had two double beds. would have liked queen beds as we were three ladies, two of whom are larger.... Everything else was GREAT
The room was very clean. The hotel had many amenities and provided a comfortable home away from home. I was approached by beggars both in front of the hotel (on the sidewalk) and in the hotel lobby. It would have been nice for security to be a bit tighter.
Location was great. Near millennium park and downtown attractions Never experienced worse hotel staff than this. From the bell man to reception to guest services
Efficient and clean
Very small rooms and poor room service.
The lobby is amazing.
Decor, ambiance, comfy bed and linens, great shower, great mirror in the bathroom, we were pleasantly suprised to see that we were able to open the windows in the room, we like fresh air. The wall paper was peeling in the bathroom.
We visited Chicago to see Hamilton. The hotel is in a great location, within walking distance to restaurants and attractions, very close to the Private Bank Theater where Hamilton is playing. We arrived slightly early and worried about getting into our room, but the staff were able to accommodate us. All the staff we encountered were extremely friendly. The self-park was included in our stay and very convenient. We had a king bed room which was very nice and clean. Overall very pleased!
In the middle of everywhere I needed to be! Near read line, near great restaurants and near the bean. Bed was a bit too uncomfortable and no water pressure in shower.
Easy walk to many restaurant, sites and public transportation.
Centrally located and accessible to tourist attractions. Friendly knowledgeable staff. Value priced.
Massive hotel. too big. very unpersonal. conference hotel and for group travel.
I enjoyed my stay. No recommendations for improvement T this time
Nice hotel I will make sure my next stay in the city will have free parking. $75+ to park after paying a couple hundred bucks for a room is terrible.
Very clean comfortable room with a great view. Close to many areas we wanted to visit. Would definitely choose this hotel again.
The service was great even if the hotel was sold out!!
From check in to check out, our stay at the Hyatt Regency was a superb experience. The staff was genuinely hospitable, and the entire facility was luxurious. The premium view is worth the extra $$$, as we had a breathtaking view of the river and lakefront. Definitely recommend. It was pricey, but definitely worth it. I really can't say anything else that was undesirable, as our stay was basically perfect.
My friend and I got there on a Thursday night. We asked the manager if we could get an upgrade since I was a gold member and the hotel was more than half empty. She denied us that courtesy. I would understand if the hotel was full but it was totally empty probably due to the bad weather so I will not stay here again
almost everything $65 for parking at their hotel. too much for guest
Nice room; cool hotel No pool
Beds are comfortable and the staff is very friendly. Onsite parking is cheaper than others in downtown Chicago. Wifi could be better. The rooms are older in style and decor, but that is to be expected in a 100+ year old hotel.
Breakfast, place eas crowded and staff had nothing to do
Loved the high ceilings and architecture!
Great hotel in a a great location at a great a price. The bathroom had some plumbing issues and smelled of sewer the whole stay.
Horrible staff dirty
Room was clean. Maid service provided excellent work. Stayed at the hotel during a warm spell in April. Room was hot and uncomfortable. No individual thermostats. Cannot get a straight answer whether or not there was air conditioning. The website miss lead about barbering availability on the premises and had trouble with dry cleaning a suit.
Nothing The room was dirty and so were my bath towels, also not to mention the hallway smelled really bad. Most importantly the staff were very rude when I informed them of my dirty room.
Nothing Bad heater and the place looks old
We loved the charm of this classic beauty. High ceilings and all. Well worth the extra money for lake view!
Location A/C barely worked and the vent was rusted Towels and sheets had blood stains Trash under the bed
The rooms were kind of updated. But the location was superb, walking distance from everything. I believe they should spend more on updating the hotel. It carries such great Old Chicago character, but the painting over decades of old cracked paint, wall paper peeling off the walls and stale odor of the lobby like grandmas old furniture... doesn't do the history of ths hotel justice.
Big bed and the museum campus. Screaming neighbors, for hours.
Came early bc we were miserable at another hotel so we showed up at 1030AM Ann's they kindly let us check in for our four nights at that time so we could relax get and shower and unpack before hitting the city. Phenomenal location to all and I mean all things. The whole staff is friendly and helpful. Great city and river views. Would most certainly recommended to anyone visiting the city.
Everything in the room will be good! view is the best!!! Location is the best of the best! When we check in, nobody tell us about breakfast, it is not include. When we check out we we're waiting car about an hour, the gay on the destination almost lost our parking ticket!
It is a large high rise in Chicago, but the staff makes you feel like you are very important! Their concierges are awesome...make sure you utilize their help!
The location is great, and the staff was friendly. I reserved two rooms in advance, but they did not put us next to each other. As a family traveling, this was disappointing.
Nice room on 38th floor with great view. Location was great. Walking and Uber/Lyft is no problem. Elevator is really loud for room 3802 but only during high traffic hours. (View made up for it) Restaurant is disappointing for price and selection. If I am going to spend $25 for breakfast $10+ dollars for cocktails or any amount for average food at dinner, there are other options within walking distance that are SO much better. They need reasonable prices to compliment convenience.
Even though the hotel offers nice spacious rooms with an incredibly friendly staff the noise left us with less than desirable evenings. The noise from people in the hallway travelled down the entire hallway echoing, causing the ability to sleep quite difficult. Conversely early in the morning when people were beginning to check out you heard the elevator almost every time... and we were at least 4-5 rooms away from the elevator. Additionally there was hotel room service plates left in the hallway for 1 1/2 days with dirty food on it. I'm a patient person but that's unacceptable for even more than half a day
Hotel and staff were great. Great location! We will book here in the future!
The bed was very uncomfortable. The staff was nice but felt robotic.
Check in was a breeze..Location was wonderful, and staff was courteous and helpful. I can't think of any negatives....
Location is fantastic and staff were all incredibly friendly. River views from room were great. Facilities in the room were a little run down but clean and comfortable beds and everything else was great.
Nothing except its location 1- Staff aren't friendly. 2- The furniture and the bed sheets are so dirty.
Lovely hotel for great price on Michigan Ave. It's close to everything cool in Chicago. Staff was friendly, and was helpful. When I forgot my toothbrush they were able to find one for us. The rooms were clean and well put together.
It was very loud; lots of LED lights that you had to creatively cover; and staff gives conflicting information about the no housekeeping $10 credit.
Such great staff! So helpful and they anticipated every need. A great experience!
The hotel is conveniently located in the city The cost of the room was very high. I was willing to pay the price but, my expectations were set high for such a small non-view room.
Location on Michigan Ave is perfect, price is good Really late check in (5pm), slow elevators, noisy hallways, outdated rooms, no free wifi
Raoul and the other breakfast servers were excellent The carpet in my room1504 seemed old and dirty
The hotel was clean and the staff very nice and helpful. I didn't like the lack of parking specifics when booking the hotel. We were confused when we got there because there is a parking garage next to the hotel that the hotel uses but it was unclear if you go into the hotel to do this or just park in the garage.
Bed was comfortable, room was very clean and nicely furnished. Missing some basic things like luggage rack. Hotel lobby desperately needs basic amenities like a chilled water dispenser (coffee is nice but it's hot outside!!!)
Nothing. Room was really small. Room was run down. Dirty. Overpriced. Staff was not helpful when they gave us the wrong room (one even yelled at us).
Clean with nice shower. Small, no fridge, microwave, coffee maker, anything. Expect to pay for everything extra.
Convenient location We were downgraded rooms and charged the same amount.
Glasses which were used and kept aside for replacement were again kept in the same position for usage. they were not replaced just like any other utilities. overall very nice place
My hotel was right acros from the park..a short walk from the museum and aquarium, as well as a ferry to the pier! The room was clean and large, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The lobby was beautiful! Hotel also has a large pool..was over all very impressed, would stay again on a return visit! That I had to leave!
Good room rate. Staff was very friendly.Very good location. Very disappointed that we were not informed of the very expensive over night parking fee.
Loved the Luxurious Amenities this hotel offers. Our room was comfortable, cold, and dark. All we needed was a fan to soothe me to sleep and upon calling the front desk, they delivered a fan to our room. Only negative I have is that our room had poor lighting. I'm a makeup artist so lighting is key for anyone to put on makeup, let alone a professional makeup artist like myself. Upgrade the lighting please!!
A Very Walkable City with wonderful waterfront area and Great Food at Lou Malnati's and Gene & Georgetti. Museums, Aquarium, Planetarium, Soldier Field, Jazz Clubs and Great Restaurants...Everything is centrally located in and around Grant Park which is right across the street from the HILTON CHICAGO. The bed pillows were AWFUL! mushy and no support. A minor point, that would NOT prevent me from staying there again. My biggest CON was the cost of parking $56/day (self park) or $70/day (valet), for the cost of the room it should be included. Also in-room WiFi is an additional charge, should also be included.
The staff was friendly and remembered me by name. The room was much smaller than expected for the Hilton. Parking is OUTRAGEOUS!
The proximity to Grant Park is great! Responsiveness to room requests were slow to non existent. I had to make three requests to have extra pillows delivered to my room (one request in person to the front desk staff, one to housekeeping, and one using the mobile app). I thought that was a bit excessive to get two extra pillows that I was told would be delivered the first time I walked down to the lobby and asked in person.
The location is good: close to subway, next to park, easy to get food to eat. I thought this is a 4-star hotel. When I saw the entrance of this hotel, it looks like 4-star. But when I got into the room, I thought I was in a 2-star Inn. The coffee maker is dirty, full of dust. The computer is not working and not able to off screen. The decoration of the room doesn't look like 4-star. Also, when the guest at next room used the bathroom, the loud "boom" sound would shock you. The WiFi is only free at lobby. The speed is really slow. When I refused to pay $30 for upgrade room with WiFi, the staff looked not happy. My teen girl was very disappointed for her trip to Chicago. She always wants to stay in hotel but this time she didn't want to stay longer.
If you are into architecture, this place will wow you. The intricacies of the interior decorations, the ornate massive stair case from the lobby to the second floor was something to behold. The rooms were a little tight but enough. Will definitely stay there again in my next trip to that city. Nothing.
Beautiful view and rooms Rooms got hot at night and had to shower to feel better about it
Staff, room, location. Only one kiosk to get coffee in the morning. You need to fix this. There is no reason it should take 20 min to get a coffee and pastry in the morning.
Liked: - Location of the hotel, right on a Michigan Ave - Professional staff - Big and clean swimming pool Did Not like: - No laundromat facilities onsite (important for me with family of 5 and extended stay) - Outrageous rate of $56.00 parking rate for 12+ hours - Have to pay to use the exercise facilities
Got a great price for an amazing room. Good on premise restaurant. Easy access just off freeway, adjacent parking (pricey). Parking should be free or subsidized for hotel guests.
Good hotel from a dependable chain, with convenient deli and ATM inside, direct access to the convention center next door, generally helpful staff. My room was not stylish but it was spotless, comfortable and larger than I expected. Location was fine, easy to get a taxi. I did not try the restaurants or deal with parking. The hot water in my room was not dependable. The lobby of the hotel had an overpowering strong cologne smell - it was like they were going for a 'signature scent' of 'too much Axe.'
Everyone from the door man to the front desk staff were very friendly. We received exceptional service.
We arrived early on our flight and the staff had no problem checking us in way before the regular time. Very accommodating and incredibly friendly staff. Facility was clean and well maintained. We plan on staying again next time we are in Chicago
Comfortable rooms Nice facilities Staff was not very helpful or nice Expensive Bad location Far from town
Quick, safe walk to Soldier Field at night with kids. Coffee pot in closet, didn't find it until we were leaving.
I loved it
Fast valet , nice accommodation, not a bad location. Expensive parking.
the staff and the room was very nice.. Having to pay to park and the restaurants were $$$$..
The price was the cheapest we could find Everything was wrong the do not disturb sign got taken off somehow and we were still in the room when they tried to clean it and the beds were too soft and caved in. The pool wasn't fun or relaxing at all and there was no hot tub. It was our honeymoon and they didn't even say congrats when we told Them that at check in. The ice machine was broken and when we asked for an extra sheet we had to call three times and it took an hour to get one. Also there needs to be a continental breakfast or at least some fruit we can grab instead of waiting in a stupid long line just to buy an apple or water. We hated it there.
Room was clean and well appointed; staff were friendly; fitness center was phenomenal
Absolutely unacceptable and unsanitarity that the beds not have Duvet cover!
This is a great hotel the atmosphere that employees everyone was great there
Superior service and accommodations, personal at hotel far superior to any staff at any hotel!
Everything. Zero complaints Service was boardline TOO GOOD if that is such a thing
Service staff never made me feel like I was a bother. I loved the spacious and newly remodeled room we stayed in. Beautiful bump out bay window with breathtaking views of the river and Lake Michigan. Bathroom had very high end finishes, and also included a television in the mirror! The maintenance guy who tried to fix a broken bathroom light was using very profane language as he failed at repairing the light. However, this staff member's behavior scored us a free upgrade from city view - to river lake view - so it all worked out.
great accomodations and service
Extremely helpful staff and the facilities were first class from room amenities to the gym. Location is great - easy walking access to shopping, tourist destinations etc
The staff was extremely helpful with everything from directions to meal preferences. The quality of atmosphere was also very good. The decor and views from the hotel were better than anywhere I've ever stayed. The pool area was not on par with the essence or ambiance of the rest of the hotel, with the lack of hot tub areas and the extreme plainness of the pool area compared to the rest of the hotel.
Our room was beautiful with a spectacular city view. Complete functioning kitchette which we did not take advantage of because we were only there one night but would have been great for a three day weekend stay. Staff was friendly and professional. We had a light fixture broken in our bathroom when we first arrived and they had it replaced and room service had cleaned the glass up in under 20 mins. Impressive for an operation this size. Within walking distance to many desired locations.
Friendly staff and clean facility No complaints
Very good location Hotel wasn't nearly as nice as other embassy suites I have stayed at.
Stayed here Dec 12-14, 2014, this was our 2nd time staying here due to close proximity to Navy Pier's Winter Wonderland. Last year the Manager's reception offered better appetizers, seemed to be a bit cheaper this year. Staff is wonderful and room was really clean. We had an issue with the thermostat, it was almost 80 degrees the whole stay. The kids love it here, it's really family oriented. They seemed to like swimming in the pool better than Winter Wonderland, they made several little friends during our short stay. Will probably be back next year, we love it here.
Great location and comfortable rooms; breakfast was an awesome surprise in variety and quality Room service was slow, rooms not super clean and could definitely do without the lobby dance music during the day when kids were napping
Nice hotel, casual and comfortable. Great breakfast. Very convenient to Navy Pier. Would definitely reccomend to friends and would stay here again.
Not convient. Poor service
Great made to order buffet. Parking was difficult to find and cost $37.00 per day. The evening reception drinks were great but the food was not. Room was great. Staff were very helpful. Overall, very pleased with the stay.
Staff was very helpful and we were able to get a later checkout upon our departure, which was nice and allowed to kids to swim for a bit before we left. Check in and out was easy, and parking was easily accessible. The price on the all inclusive Disney kids on Demand TV package I order did not reflect what was charged to my bill. It was only a difference of $2.99 and ultimately not a big deal, but still, I feel as though you should be paying what you are quoted. Also, being that it was a holiday weekend, it would have been nice if breakfast was open until 10 as it is on the weekends, but I get the weekend vs. weekend schedule. The lines were a bit long by the end of breakfast and early breakfast is always hard to do with my kids. But again, not a huge deal in the whole scheme of things. We will definitely be back.
Friendly staff. Excellent breakfast. Enjoyed happy hour each night.
Located close to shopping and conference centers Amenities are average
Friendly Staff Poor policies
Nice clean rooms Parking was terrible
The Front staff made this place, really nice and very helpful. The location was great and made getting around Chicago a breeze. Next years Microsoft Ignite conference I will be booking at this Hotel again. Next time though I will remember to get a room with a fridge!
The location was great and checking in and out was very easy. Complementary water bottles were also great!
Free bottles of water!! Very clean. The whole process was flawless! No breakfast options... Even fruit would have been a nice touch
Clean, professional, great guest services! The restaurant next door had terrible service. The hotel however was great!
The staff are friendly and helpful. The room is clean.
Most things we wanted to see were just off the L, we had to walk 6 blocks maximum. There was a lack of dance bars for people our age without a ridiculous cover charge
I liked how friendly the staff are. I did not like how dusty the room was ( around the bed).
Rooms were clean $53 for valet and they brought down the wrong car 2 out of 3 times. Both times I waited for more than an hour when the entire purpose of the valet is to save time. Half of the staff was excellent and the other half was rued.
The hotels staff was incredibly nice. The hotel itself was extremely clean. The location was perfect. It was close to everything touristic
Noisy elevators dinging loudly throughout night, guests speaking loudly in hallway, staff not very helpful
Spacious room Had to wait for my room Heating went into cooling so too sensitive and could not control to heat only. Bath tub did not drain well.
Location and views from rooms Pool was not always clean. Hair in pool made kids not want to swim.
The location, the personel is always available and happy to help. The breakfast was not included
The rooms on the river side had such wonderful views of the river, boats, buildings. The views were awesome both diring the day and night. Also enjoyed the outside dining and area to have a drink or just relax. Many attractions were within walking distance. Nothing stands out. Love the hotel and location.
Courteous staff, views of the water, walk le access to shops and restaurants Internet cost
The location, bed, and shower were perfect. The room size was great and the view of the river was beautiful. It's in walking distance of the Willis tower and sky gate. Parking is about 55 dollars for 24hrs, and about 14 for 30 minutes. There is no fridge in the room. There was no coffee in the room, as is supplied at lower end hotels. Because there are restaurants in the building, when we asked for recommendations on places to eat the staff would only recommend those places, which are overly expensive. No complimentary breakfast.
Friendly, professional staff. Great accommodations. Perfect location. Especially liked the on-site dining options.
Great bedding, nice staff, open and big lobby. Great food options.
Very friendly and professional staff, good places to eat attached directly to the building. Nice and clean work out facility.
Great location WAY TOO OVER CROWDED, we didn't get the room we requested and had to change rooms the second night. Overall, not a great value for the money. I would stay elsewhere next time, since there is a ton of hotels in that area.
The hotel is located in a wonderful part of Chicago - it's situated right between Michigan for shopping and to the south is the park and museums, to the east is Navy Pier. You can't have a better location - and not to mention, being right on the water (river - not Lake Michigan although that is only minutes away)! Nothing - it's a great hotel - stayed there many a times when I visit.
It was a great location and the staff was very friendly. I spent a lot of time looking for a room that would comfortably fit 3 adults. I was traveling with my 19 year old daughter and my 67 year old mother. I specifically booked and paid for a "triple room". When we got to the room there were 2 small double beds. Not at all what I expected for 3 adults or for $400 per night. Be very aware of what you are actually getting for your money. This was not at all comfortable for 3 regular sized adults. I will say everything else was fine but I felt very ripped off for what we paid vs. what we got. I could have booked a regular room anywhere for much less.
Great location just off the Magnificent Mile easy to get to just with everything you might need to downtown. When was nice but needed a few small maintenance items repaired other than that it was a great place to stay.
Great location with a nice hotel design. The drum bar and the bakery were nice perks. Its an older building and that is very obvious. The AC is questionable, the elevators are small and take quite a while, and if you want normal pillows you need to request them.
The location is excellent for whatever activity of interest in downtown Chicago. Attentive and courtesy staff
Elevator was an issue. Very small for the size hotel.
Really wonderful employees that made us feel welcomed and comfortable. They were very accommodating and polite.
Can't say a thing. I travel quite a bit every year and stay in dozens of hotels. I must say this was the worst experience at a hotel I have ever had. I would never suggest this place to anyone.
Very clean. Microwave and fridge nice to have. Close to shopping and navy pier Self park was really valet parking down the street.
This is a Kayak review- not a hotel review. I booked my travel a week in advance and with 2 days notice I received a call that I no longer had a reservation and there was nothing that could be done. It left me scrambling to find a room and I had to pay 40% more than expected because I never really had a reservation. Will never use Kayak again.
Very nice updates to room and bathroom. Comfortable bedding, drumBAR on the 18th floor, and great location. Room was extremely hot and the temp could not be adjusted. The room was also very small but worked for our 1 night stay.
Great location and value...staff was fantastic, reacted to every need we had with a positive attitude and were very timely. nothing...we don't spend a lot of time in a hotel when we travel...met our needs perfectly
Hotel was clean and staff was exceptionally friendly. Doorman was extremely helpful. Donut shop downstairs was delicious and convenient. The location was decent if you're willing to walk about a mile to anything you'd like to see. Room was a little small and elevator was extremely small preventing us from getting our stroller in if anyone else was in the elevator.
Location - decor - cleanliness Terrible Wi-Fi
Friendly and courteous staff The vent was blowing air at my face every time the hvac kicked in while I was trying to sleep.
Perfectly situated for seeing the sights, enjoying the music scene, shopping, and exploring the beaches. The gym only had one treadmill. The 2nd was broken. But we had so much fun doing other things that we never hit the gym.
The only thing going for the hotel is location and price. The rooms were small and dark. The bathroom had the most perplexing layout and the hot water took a full 5 minutes to get hot for a shower. It wasn't as clean as I like a hotel to be (hair from previous guests on the shower wall. Gross).
-Perfect Location: We walked EVERYWHERE and the Whitehall was always a great starting point and place to come back to for a moment of rest. -Friendly Staff -Good value: We spent very little time in the room, so it served it's purpose. -Steps away from the John Hancock Building and Michigan Ave. -Carpet was a little grungy. -Bed wasn't super comfy, but I still slept well. Overall, a good value for the money. Would stay here again because it was such a great location and the staff was very friendly.
Comfortable beds A little pricey and some attn to detail needed for rooms falling apart. (Cracks in ceilings etc)
Likes the character and location. Beds were comfortable and space was good. Tv was huge and state of the art. Bathroom was small and outdated.
The location was pretty much the only good part of this hotel. Bed was comfortable, but it should be for the price. Parking is expensive, be sure to use valet if you plan to use your car. Check spot hero for cheaper places to park if you self park. Hotel is old. It is maintained fairly well but it does show its age in dated bathroom fixtures. First hotel I have ever been in with no alarm clock, didn't provide any soap for the shower either. It is decent but I would look elsewhere. Isn't worth the price and doesn't deserve its rating.
The location was right on the money, with some of the sights of downtown just a few minutes away. The price was also very good. Our room did not have a fridge for us to put leftovers into or a microwave to heat them in. Also, the window coverings needed a good update and looked old and grungy.
Super comfy bed, awesome location. Hotel is steps from the magnificent mile and a short walk to the lake. Small lobby and elevators, room was in need of some small wear and tear repairs.
Location was amazing!! Super close to shopping and pretty much everything! Cute antique ish feel to it. Nice and clean, staff super nice and helpful!
The room was clean, though very dark, and the bed was comfortable. As others have pointed out, it is within walking distance of most downtown shopping areas and about half an hour from the Magnificent Mile. The front desk staff were clipped and curt, which was unexpected, and made for a chilly welcome to the Windy City. As mentioned, the room was darker than expected, and the two outlets for charging equipment were located along the far wall, underneath the desk, which had a drawer that would not close. This drawer's corners caused several near-accidents, unsurprisingly. The bathroom was clean and pleasantly designed, but very small. We were dissatisfied with the room service and front desk experience. When we ordered breakfast, we expected more than a few eggs on an English muffin, and we received two small scones, rather than our order of a scone and a croissant. When this was mentioned at checkout, I was told that a manager would give me a call, which never happened.
The staff was amazing. Everything detail from decor to comfort was superior in quality and taste. Fantastic location. Amazing pool ans spa. The additional room service charge
Very nice. Excellent price for how luxurious it was. The room was unbelievable and the location was perfect. The parking was very easy, if you don't want to use the valet, there is a parking garage right next to the hotel. I had called to confirm our check in was at 3pm, and I received an email stating that our check in was at 3pm. However, our room was not available until after 4pm. We had missed our dinner reservations because of this. And being that we paid alot to stay at this hotel, they did not offer any compensation for their error.
This place is so extra!! I have stayed at the London location but it had been so long ago that I forgot how nice it is.
Location is excellent. staff is good.
Club level was outstanding. Staff were beyond awesome. Food was great.
I loved the spa, and the club level. The art--in the halls, and the rooms--was quite wonderful and unique in my experience. The food on the club level was excellent. And the spa is the best I've found amongst hotels, and in Chicago. Staff was quite helpful. It is very expensive. I was amazed at how expensive the overnight parking would have been ($ 71), and chose to park for 1/3 of that in a garage next door.
The rooms are large and the bathroom is awesome ,The rooms are large and the bathroom is awsom
The hotel was in a great location.
Great price Friendly staff Clean room Nice shower/bathroom Comfortable bed 12pm check out Location! Poor view Room was a little small
Great location that's about it... Book double room but got a single king room for 2 couples. Was told they over booked and didn't have rooms left. Also when to grab a Coke from the mini bar it had Santa on it..... I stayed in September...... After checking the date on it I found out it expired 2 months ago. I also received a bar tab from another room. They did correct that after pulling the receipt that clearly showed it was for another room. Then after all that they asked would you like to charge your parking to your card now? I said yes that not a problem. They said my MasterCard got declined..... I then responded with "I don't own a MasterCard. They had no clue when my visa number when.... Just amateur hour at his place. The bedding is also 80 grit sand paper and you may die on the slippery tile in the shower. Also the bell hop had no idea where he put out check bags when leaving....
Reserved two queen beds. They had me in a king. The guy was rude and never even apologized. Unbelievable service for a hotel like this.
What a great place to stay. We came into town for a Blackhawks game. This hotel is perfectly located. The price, room, staff, bar and food where all absolutely amazing. We will b back!!!
It was very comfortable and near museums and points of I interest. One of our breakfast's wasn't good. Shower needs anti slip help. Elevator slow
The location. The bathroom was very small for a luxury hotel. The shower facets were hard to figure our. My wife did not like over head shower head. The room computer did not work and services could not fix it.
Location... and that's all. EXTREMELY OVERPRICED for a dated hotel w/ small rooms. $67/day parking for guests is opportunistic
Decent room for the money, nice bathroom, good location if you are in town to do some major shopping No restaurant open in the evening, outdated lobby, no room service, could hear neighbors through the walls
We were able to book at this hotel during a very busy time. We were told we would get a text when our room was ready. We never got it. We tried calling the front desk over several hours and the calls were going to a fax machine. We used the number listed on the website an on the itinerary. We even had friends try to call. We ended up leaving a WORLD SERIES game early, because we were worried they would give our room away.
Cool historical building. Great location Parking is $67 at the hotel
Location was fantastic. Could not control the temperature in the room. Way too warm regardless of colder temps outside.
We were very happy with the Kinzie Hotel. The location was very convenient for the Oriental Theater, as well as for dinner locations afterward. We appreciated the continental breakfast provided on each floor. We found the room very spacious, clean, and comfortable. We especially appreciated the friendly staff and we look forward to staying here again.
Location The check in desks aren't the best, it gets congested and it's loud. The evening reception is nice however I received one coin for one drink?! I saw many others with many coins for drinks.
I was pleasantly surprised about our stay. We travel a lot and typically stay at places we are familiar with. However, this place was perfect! Location, staff, room.....everything was great! We will definitely stay here again when we return to Chicago. I think the most impressive part was the great staff. They understand customer service and they were on their game at all times!
The view was beautiful Nothing
Location Not at all what I've experienced from a four star hotel. The rooms weren't very big or nice. And the attendants at the lobby were sitting down, which I found odd. I would never rate this a four star hotel, I found it akin to Aloft hotels. I also bought this room for a friend's birthday, and they said they don't do anything special for birthdays. I've stayed at 3 star hotels that send up champagne on birthdays.
Good breakfast, great location, modern, very clean, all around great!
There was nothing I would change during our stay. It was perfect and the front desk person named Robert was very helpful too! Thank you.
We liked how breakfast was available on every floor, the location (pretty central to our interests), the price was good and there was relatively inexpensive parking next door. View from the room was basically an alley and parking lot, not the best view in Chicago by any means. Breakfast ends a little early. Free drinks at the "lounge" was a great surprise but the lounge itself is a bizarre little room.
The location was great! It was trendy and clean and comfortable. Love the free continental breakfast on each floor. We also got two free drink tokens for a happy hour they host - which was a nice pre-dinner drink for us! They were also able to accommodate us last minute for an early check-in which was super helpful. Everything was a little small (hotel room, lobby, etc). It was modern and boutique-like, but I wouldn't consider it a luxury hotel.
Enjoyed our stay at the Kinzie. Loved the continental breakfast on our floor every morning, as well as the spread provided during happy hour. Within 5 minute walk of 3 L train stations. Would definitely stay here again!!
We loved the breakfast on every floor! The rooms were nicely decorated and very clean. The location was perfect!! While we were okay with "no view", we didn't care for others looking into our windows. We had to keep our blinds closed the entire time. Sheers would be nice to still have the light but still have piece of mind about privacy. Perhaps next time we will ask for a view!!
The receptionist messed up my receipt.I used my company's card to stay and I am the only person who stay in the hotel.And when checking out,I just asked for the receipt but didn't check it.after coming back,I have to use the receipt to do my reinbursement,but found out that it is not under my name and the stay person wrote down two,which looks pretty bad on me!i called the hotel to change the receipt name,they refused it bc it is a past reservation! The most annoying thing is that when I checked out using the compan card,I asked them if it is ok to pay with a card not under my name.they didn't say anything.and the worst thing is that the receptionist change the name of my reservation in the system and didn't tell me about it.moreover,the receipt amount doesn't match my reservation amount which is also ridiculous!!!All in all, this experiment almost cost me to not be able to reinburse my stay. They r obviously not professional and it gives me a really bad memory here!
Very clean and friendly staff No iron in the room
Perfect for theater weekend. Great location, beautiful room . Thoughtful amenities.
Rooms were incredibly tiny. Elevators did not work.
The room was perfectly sized and extremely comfortable. Not a single thing.
The location. My wife and I went to see the Phantom of the Opera playing next door at the Cadillac Palace. I can't say enough about the convenience of having the hotel next door. no having to walk blocks to our vehicle. Walked down the sidewalk and into the hotel, was able to avoid the cold Chicago weather. The Room. We stayed in Room 405. Our view out of the 2 windows, the first was a brick wall, the second, an alley way. At about 2am, for some reason the windows decided they wanted to bang against the frame endlessly, not allowing neither my wife or I to sleep. The bed was definately not a King Bed, and for it being a Premier Room, I would have expected the bathroom to be bigger than the size of a closet. I can't say I wouldn't stay here again, but would want to see the room before check-in.
Luxurious hotel The room is much smaller than it seems in the photos. Walls are super thin which makes privacy very difficult. Expect to hear your neighbors.
Staff was very friendly Sense of style The remodeled lobby was very crowded at check-in...the remodel did not improve traffic flow Paper thin walls Poor internet Small bathroom (even for small people) SLOW and small elevators Couldn't get receipt at checkout (printer not working, system didn't allow for email) All in all, it was a stressful stay
Everything was great!
Great hotel, great service, great room. Couldn't have been happier with the Hotel Allegro The booking site Amoma.com gave me an invalid confirmation number, and since the hotel was already full for the second half of my stay, I ended up quite stressed out and dragging my luggage around for a full day until the hotel had a cancellation and I was able to stay. Amoma.com was very responsive and professional when they finally responded (I think they're based in Switzerland), and I think some third party was responsible for the booking problem, but regardless, my stay was more distressing than I had hoped for. If you have a choice, I would recommend booking with another agency for this location.
Clean! Beautiful! Wish the bathtubs were a tad bigger!
This review is not a negative review of the hotel. Rather it is a result of a horrible experience with kayak and their vendors. Upon arriving at the hotel, I was told at the front desk my reservation did not exist. After showing them several emails from kayaks vendors, they told me those confirmation numbers did not exist if that was the fifth person with the same issue booking through kayak that day. After several hours on the phone with no successful resolution with kayaks vendors, my partner was finally able to secure a room for us at another hotel. We are still trying to resolve this issue with. I will not be booking through kayak again.
The French ambiance. A bit expensive.
we were traveling with our toddler. the hotel crib came with complimentary johnson & johnson toiletries and a stuffed bear. the room was clean, comfortable and spacious enough to be tolerable with a toddler in the same room. the bathroom was spacious, in excellent condition and well-appointed. we were on a high floor and had a great view of the city. it would've been great to have iPhone charging docks/stations. we forgot to bring one charger.
The rooms were nice, but our room had not been properly cleaned. There was an empty wine bottle in the trash, a stain on the carpet, and dirt on the bedspread. The location is great for exploring the city. A block from Michigan Ave, the beach, and Rush street. The customer service was not good. We waited 30-45 minutes for our bags to be brought up to our room and finally had to go down to get them. There were two bellmen standing in the lobby doing nothing and our luggage was just sitting there. As mentioned the room was not properly cleaned which is never a good feeling when you are staying in a hotel. I requested a late check-out and was immediately told "No due to someone else staying in our room and they needed to clean it". He then asked what room we were staying in. He again said it wasn't possible as someone was staying in that room and they would need to clean it. When we checked out I forgot a brand new shirt I bought while staying there. I rarely hang things in the closet and had done so since it was a new shirt. I realized this the next day and called and again was given horrible customer service. They told me it was not in the room and that nobody stayed in that room the night before so they couldn't help me. Obviously, the maid who cleaned that room took it, but they accepted no responsibility for that. Not to mention they couldn't give us a late check-out due to another guest needing the room. It's a shame the customer service was so bad because it is a nice hotel in a great area of the city.
Great location, great value for the price. Staff need to stop acting so high fallutin. Yes it is the Sofitel, but you still work for me.
Great location, beautiful room and good staff. Except for my wife losing her nose ring and no thin sheets were available; our stay was outstanding.
I would have preferred a discount on the Parking for staying in the hotel.
beautiful hotel bed was too soft
Great location a few steps from the best shopping and restaurants in Chicago. Very friendly and professional staff.
Rooms too small
Large rooms and bathrooms. Plenty of fast elevators. Great location for the north end of the Magnificent Mile. More attention to detail could be provided to the cleanliness of the shower area. Several areas of black mildew in the grout of the shower wall.
Great spot. Conveniently located. Pleased overall with the property.
EVERYTHING, THE SERVICE WAS THE BEST AND THE BATHROOMS LARGE AND BEAUTIFULLY DONE. NICE TOUCHES EVERYWHERE! NOTHING
Really enjoyed how friendly everyone was towards us especially since we were a young couple there and the staff told us good morning and everything each day and always had a smile on their face I can't really say I didn't like anything about the hotel or service. The only thing was it was a little expensive for us. Other than that everything was excellent
I've stayed at several nice hotels in Chicago and this is by far my favorite. Very comfortable, tastefully decorated, incredible A-V/home automation controls. This was the perfect home-base for a multi-day business trip. The atrium also had a splendid Sunday brunch with string quartet. Couldn't be better
Beautiful room. Inpecable service
Great location across from Saks and neiman marcus. Hotel gorgeous, bright, elegant in public areas, very comfortable and luxurious room and bathroom
I would guess that most people who gave this place a positive review have never stayed at trump. For the same price trump offers a vastly better experience and much more comfort. The gym and spa at trump make this place look like a spa from rural Cambodia. Rooms were an ever so slightly better version of the Conrad. No pillow menu. No glacier water. No espresso machine in room. No microwave or stovetop with dishwasher( all present at trump). And no cake with gold leaf on it for my birthday!!!
Beds super comfy; Felt like I was staying at a spa; Staff super friendly and helpful; beautiful view of the river and partial skyline; GPS kept wanting to take me to the closed parking garage underground; Had to ask other hotel valet down there how to get up top to my hotel (not hotel's fault). Valet expensive ($70), but guess it's the norm for Chicago.
Nice views from the room and the fitness center. Very clean and quiet despite how busy the lobby was with guests! Low, popcorn ceilings really make the room feel more like a motel than a high-rise! The room was a bit outdated overall. Also the location was not super easy to access on foot - ended up taking more cabs than we would have liked.
Location was great for Michigan Avenue shopping as well as Shedd Aquarium, Museums, and Navy Pier. The pool and hot tub were great. The water temperature was perfect for kids. The view was excellent from the top floor, which is where the pool/fitness area is located. Rooms were comfortable and quiet. Elevator system was easy. The overall design of the hotel was a bit unique and differentiated from other Chicago 4 Star + choices. We valet parked the car. When you leave, you go down to the parking garage to exit. The corner to drive out and up the ramp is super tight . I ended up scraping my back door pretty substantially. It was operator error for sure. I would just caution others to be careful as they leave or ask one of the valet guys who do this all the time to drive it through the corner.
We've been going to the Chicago hotel for many yrs. We enjoy the location.
I booked a room in Chicago at the Swissotel for two nights and after reading the horror stories about kayak bookings through getaroom, I was a bit apprehensive. Based on my travel plans and circumstances, I was able to risk it and make other lodging plans if necessary, so I risked the inconvenience of whatever troubles getaroom might cause me. Fortunately, I did not run into any troubles at all and had a wonderful stay at a luxurious hotel that is in a great location. I received all the service and privileges of a normal stay at the Swissotel. No complaints.
It is in a nearly ideal location near Michigan Avenue, shopping, restaurants, etc The audiovisual support for my meeting was abysmal
great hotel with great service
We did not expect a room with a view but we got one and it was amazing! The rooms were also very large and we were able to walk everywhere we needed to go. We were right beside the elevators so we heard them often but we got used to it. At first if just sounded like a plane flying overhead until we figured it out but it was no where near a deal breaker for booking again.
I didnt even stay at your hotel.
It was in a pretty great location and all of the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The rooms were well kept and comfortable, though do need a bit of updating. We did not receive a very warm welcome upon driving up to the hotel. It took us a minute to find a valet and a bellhop.
Love the location near River & Lake Michigan. River walk has so much to offer right outside the doors. Walkable to most major attractions. Just off from the crowds of Michigan Ave. This is our 4th time and always my first choice when visiting Chicago.
