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.
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
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 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 lobby is amazing.
Walk into the grand lobby and you feel like you're part of Chicago history. The rooms are a little small.
Location Beds were lopsided, couldn't sleep on it.
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.
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.
Incredibly beautiful hotel. The lobby is a masterpiece. I felt like I was transported in time...with modern amenities close by. Wish there was a refrig in the room but other than that, this trip was perfect. I plan to visit The Palmer many more times.
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.
Efficient and clean
Massive hotel. too big. very unpersonal. conference hotel and for group travel.
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.
Check in was busy but efficient Because it was our 10th wedding anniversary I called to have a bottle of proseco waiting for us in the room. I was told they didn't have proseco but it was listed in the menu. The walls are paper thin. So much so not only could I hear the guy next door but I could also hear the person he was talking to on the phone. came downstairs to get my car from the valet and was told it would take 20 minutes. No one said anything when I checked in and there were no instructions that allowed you to call ahead from your room. Bathroom floor was sticky. Overall, the worse hotel visit.
almost everything $65 for parking at their hotel. too much for guest
Bed was to soft pillows
Very clean comfortable room with a great view. Close to many areas we wanted to visit. Would definitely choose this hotel again.
Easy walk to many restaurant, sites and public transportation.
Location was great. Staff was nice. Workout facility adequate. The BIG bar and the common spaces were really neat. no convienent way to have towels replaced. You had to call housekeeping. Also the sink was small, no place to leave personal items on sink. Couldn't use the refrigerator because it was rigged to charge you for minibar items.
I enjoyed my stay. No recommendations for improvement T this time
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
Centrally located and accessible to tourist attractions. Friendly knowledgeable staff. Value priced.
Right by elevator
The bed was very uncomfortable. The staff was nice but felt robotic.
We loved the location, the room and the view- just didn't like being next to the elevator. Other than that- it was great!!
It was nice and in a great location They gave me a single king room with no view but I payed for a double queen with a view and even paid extra for a view room and then just gave us a free meal that sucked
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.
One of the better exercise areas I've seen in a hotel. A shop downstairs for incidentals (especially water) would be nice, instead of having to walk to the nearby Seven Eleven.
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.
Wedding with loud DJ two floors above us kept us up one night. We called the desk and they seemed like they couldnt have cared less about our concern
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
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!
Everything... not the room i asked for... was lied too. telling me things would be the same and werent... not even close. will not use again.
Everything. Zero complaints Service was boardline TOO GOOD if that is such a thing
great accomodations and service
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.
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.
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
Superior service and accommodations, personal at hotel far superior to any staff at any 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.
This is a great hotel the atmosphere that employees everyone was great there
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.
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
Great bedding, nice staff, open and big lobby. Great food options.
Friendly, professional staff. Great accommodations. Perfect location. Especially liked the on-site dining options.
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.
The location, the personel is always available and happy to help. The breakfast was not included
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 $400 per night. Be very aware of what you are actually getting for your money. This was not at all comfortable for 3 regular sized adults. I will say everything else was fine but I felt very ripped off for what we paid vs. what we got. I could have booked a regular room anywhere for much less.
The view from the room was amazing & the room was large. Long line at check in.
We loved how close it was to navy pier. The view from our room was amazing. How dusty our room was. There were dust bunnies on the desk.
Great location WAY TOO OVER CROWDED, we didn't get the room we requested and had to change rooms the second night. Overall, not a great value for the money. I would stay elsewhere next time, since there is a ton of hotels in that area.
Very friendly and professional staff, good places to eat attached directly to the building. Nice and clean work out facility.
Very nice. Excellent price for how luxurious it was. The room was unbelievable and the location was perfect. The parking was very easy, if you don't want to use the valet, there is a parking garage right next to the hotel. I had called to confirm our check in was at 3pm, and I received an email stating that our check in was at 3pm. However, our room was not available until after 4pm. We had missed our dinner reservations because of this. And being that we paid alot to stay at this hotel, they did not offer any compensation for their error.
The rooms are large and the bathroom is awesome ,The rooms are large and the bathroom is awsom
I loved the spa, and the club level. The art--in the halls, and the rooms--was quite wonderful and unique in my experience. The food on the club level was excellent. And the spa is the best I've found amongst hotels, and in Chicago. Staff was quite helpful. It is very expensive. I was amazed at how expensive the overnight parking would have been ($ 71), and chose to park for 1/3 of that in a garage next door.
The 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
Good location My king bed was actually a king box spring with two twin mattresses. Who does that? The seam is right in the middle of your back.
Chicago is a beautiful city. The River Hotel couldn't have been located any better. Our view was ok nothing great because we were in the 2nd floor. The hotel staff was very nice. And the marble stair case was gorgeous. I liked that they had complimentary bottled water. That's help whenever you walking continuously around the city. I had issues about several things that may not matter to some people but it bothered me. I asked twice for a sleeping mask and the first night they're were out said they'll get some in the next day. On the next day I asked again and they already have them out.?.? I feel they should have notated I requested one the first day and then have it ready the next. The bed linens leave something to be desired. They use a flat sheet for the bottom sheet which kept coming undone. The comforter wasn't big enough for the bed. It continuously kept falling off so in the middle of the night I had to get up and cover my wife back up. The room was for the most part clean. However I drop something and when I looked under the bed I saw individual skittles covered in dust :-/. And the restaurant... We tried to eat and drink there but the service was terrible. Took 20 mins to get menus and a water. I guess they're understaffed? But we left before ordering anything due to the service. The overal stay wasn't terrible. I would stay there again but I would never pay full price for it.
Location Smallest room I've ever seen. Valet parking outrageously expensive.
Room very clean and cozy. Excellent location for downtown. Great value for the money. It was difficult to locate and find initally when we were driving and trying to checkin.
The River Hotel is very conveniently located and has a nice restaurant downstairs that has a nice beverage selection and even deep dish Chicago pizza (along with a diverse selection of salads, pasta, and meat dishes). The A/C was great and the mattress was comfortable. We were able to check in an hour and a half early, which was very nice. The room was tiny - literally the same size as many of the hotel rooms we stayed in in Japan. The toiletries and furnishings were the bare minimum - don't forget to bring the bar of soap to the shower if you want to use it there instead of at the sink! Finally, the elevator situation is terrible. Multiple times, we had to wait well over 10 minutes for an elevator to get to our room. Be sure to budget in extra time if you're on a schedule!
Incredible views of the river and downtown. Walking distance to Navy Pier, Willis Tower and lots of other great restaurants and fun places. Staff was very helpful, have a son in a wheel chair and they went out of their way to help. Great Italian/pizza restaurant in lobby. Historic style building with very clean modern rooms.
The hotel is centrally located and the staff was accommodative. Just be aware the rooms are tiny
Location is perfect. Rooms are tiny, with no wasted space and good views. Lobby non-existent, but 2nd floor desk/relax space makes up for that. They have no lot, no arrangement with a local lot, and only one valet on staff as best I could tell. This guy would disappear for up to 20-30 min, or flat out say it will be 20+ min before I can get your car. All that, for $55 per trip. Don't drive, or plan to find a distant garage if you want to pay less than $50-70 per night parking. Atop the valet-delay, they only had one elevator servicing floors 11-30s, and every trip up or down took at least 10 min of waiting (don't leave anything behind!) and every trip in the elevator was packed body to body.
Great location, very good restaurant in the hotel. Have to wait along time for elevator, then it broke down along with the coffee machine.
The elevator service was terrible. We would often wait over 20 minutes to catch the elevator during the day, and the stairs were not practical when you're staying in the 28th floor.
Central downtown location, good restaurant, nice service Needs a good cleaning and update, grungy.
Loved the location; we were able to walk everywhere and taxis were plenty if we needed them right outside hotel. very courteous staff and everything was impeccable. thanks!
The room was nice - great view. Chair could have used an ottoman but actually had good magazines to enjoy while relaxing in the room. Keurig coffee in room, which is always nice to have. Hotel was busy during our stay, but the room was quiet. The check in process was poorly organized and there were not enough people at the concierge desks to handle the number of guests. Overall I found the staff to be less than helpful and not particularly friendly. Our room wasn't ready until after 4 - and they were supposed to text or call when it was ready and they never did. We booked the hotel for a weekend get-away and not sure we'd go back.
It is in a nearly ideal location near Michigan Avenue, shopping, restaurants, etc The audiovisual support for my meeting was abysmal
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Room was amazing. Facilities (pool, fitness & game room) were phenominal
Booked through kayak the day of to arrive and no record of my booking at hotel. Card was swiped twice, so I had to wait past my stay for the authorization to fall off for the $700 charge. It was a messy situation and one that shouldn't happen while I am taking a break.
The room was great and the amenities were awesome. Great location, only a few minutes from Michigan Ave and Millenium Park. It would be hard to return to Chicago and stay anywhere else!
I hosted a meeting while I was there and their banquet staff was exceptional! They were able to make changes last minute. If they didn't know the answer to a question they found out for me. They were always smiling and always on top of every detail without my asking. The side chair & mattress were a little harder than I prefer.
Loved the view of the city from our balcony. Also, the rain shower was great! It was the perfect location to all the tourist attractions of the city. Would definitely stay here again! The cost of parking was a bit overpriced.
room was excellent - very comfortable bed restaurant was nothing special - for location of the hotel it was poorly situated and did not take advantage of this location and offer a view of the park or of the lake
Cool looking. Hotel corridors unique in a good way. Room comfortable. Balcony nice but should have bad small chairs. Bar uncomfortable and staff had stiff personalities. Facilty confusing.
Location, interior design, amenities
Beautiful hotel all around. Incredible pool deck, one of the best I've seen, Upscale, and very clean. The noise from fire station nearby meant that we had to keep the balcony door closed and so it was a waste to pay the extra money for a balcony you can't enjoy. Very expensive parking.
The staff were EXCELLENT! I was there for a small event and Dominic took perfect care of us. Loved my stay!
Modern room, loved the shower.. Found the room servicw menu limited, very few items.
Its just 18 floors
The room was very comfortable and the hotel staff was fabulous. Really enjoyed our stay.
The parking garage is located right next door and was very easy to access. No need to spend money on valet parking, unless you don't like carrying your luggage. Parking next door was 1/2 the cost. (About $35 per day). Safe area. Great location! No free WiFi in rooms. In order to use free WiFi, you had to go to the lobby. Pricey stay for no internet access in room.
I chose Fairmont Chicago, Millennium Park because of its location and good reputation. After my stay at the hotel I am glad that I made a right choice. When I was checking into the hotel there was some confusion about my reservation. I reserved two rooms but the hotel reservation system showed only one room under my name. After I presented my two hotel reservation vouchers and email communication the front desk manager quickly gave me two rooms without unnecessary delay (the room types were exactly what I requested when I made my reservation). The hotel front desk manager and staff were very courteous while they were trying to sort it out. I and my family had a great stay there. It's location and free room wi-fi connection were excellent.
The staff was incredibly kind Bathroom wasn't immaculate
Location - very convenient. One of those hotels that tries to make money on every little extra. Cockroaches on the 26th floor where our room was. Reported it to the front desk - they didn't sound surprised at all.
I don't recomend for people who go in a group of people! I went there with 3 more friends. They gave us a room with only 1 bed. CAN YOU SLEEP 4 people in 1 bed? Or do you prefer to sleep in a couch? That's what they said; "sorry, but that's what is available" WHO PAYS A DAMN EXPENSIVE ROOM TO SLEEP IN A COUCH?
I honestly felt like I stole from them for getting my room that cheap! It's a truly 5 star place it's close to everything you could want to do downtown! The staff is very friendly and amazing! The rooms are very nice and pretty big!
I will be a Fairmont customer for life. Anytime I am to stay in a hotel, I will be looking to see if there is a Fairmont location available. The staff is always accommodating and VERY polite. I cannot praise them enough. Even the representatives on the phone were extremely helpful. I thank those that assisted in my experience with the most sincere gratitude I can express. I cannot say anything unkind about this hotel. I notice that some reviewers have stated things like the ceiling is water-stained and there's some damage to this or that. Honestly, I just told the service desk about there being a slight water stain on the ceiling in the bathroom. Other than that I didn't have any issues, and this is my second time staying at this hotel. Really though, are you staying in a hotel because you want the entire room to look brand new? Please redirect yourself to a room in another hotel that costs around 3 times the price of what the Fairmont's rates are. I assure you, for the price offered for the rooms in this hotel, you will not find a better experience.
Friendly staff Convenient location Cleanliness Shower lacks decent pressure Room A/C wouldn't cool properly
Good access to Chicago attractions #1 WAY TOO EXPENSIVE. Room price was average to low for area. But restaurant was mediocre and priced straight insulting, $29 for a buffet with no omelette bar, no fresh Oj, nothing fresh. Worst buffet for the money ever. #2. No snacks on floors and $5 for 20 Pringles potato chips. No snack food in area especially late night. Room service slow and speedy. #3. $70 for parking. No validation or discount for hotel customers, across the street its $35 also borderline insulting
Good value, good location Parking high $70 a day, room service cart left in hallway for almost full day. Wireless cost high $16 per day,
Great views, great rooms, great staff, wonderful stay. Pricey room service
Couldn't ask for a better location. Comfortable rooms and good security and staff.
Location is second to none Absolutely no amenities or service. No breakfast. No luggage carts. No frills hotel. Don't expect anything but a place to sleep. We aren't unhappy at all. Just not impressed for the money we spent
The location allowed us to walk everywhere. We came to attend the Blues festival in Grant Park and the art museum. The staff was very professional and helpful. Silly as it sounds,the fingerprints on the glass entrance doors drove me crazy. I also did not like the glass drinking glasses in the room. As nice as they were, I did not know how they had been cleaned and would have opted for a plastic covered disposable glass.
I loved the location, it's very close to all of the main dining & shopping in which I came to the city for. The staff was excellent and very kind to me, that goes a long way!! The price for the sized room that I was given was not up to my expectations.
Good location, just across the Chicago River from Trump Tower. Very convenient to the heart of the city. The staff, including the house maintenance personnel, was very nice and responsive to our request. Bedbugs, my wife was bitten 4 times. Not pretty. No air conditioning due to a dual pipe system which has already been converted from chillers to boiler even though the afternoon temps. were in the eighties. We had to ask for a portable fan. Old building with small, slow elevators. Rooms need to be updated. Toilet leaked and left puddle on the floor. When we picked our bags up from checked bag storage, my fold -over suitcase had been unzipped and remained opened. Would not stay here again.
This is a great historic building, classic Chicago, in a great location. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The "living room" on the second floor offers a convenient space for meeting or relaxing.
Staff was extremely friendly including maids, front desk, and bellhops. I stayed on a high floor which had only 2 other rooms. No problem with elevators. My room had a great view over the Chicago River and was larger than I expected. Taxis were immediately available, but also a great location to walk to many things. I would definitely stay in this hotel again.
parking was cheaper. the restaurant in the lobby sucked.
I loved the location. We were able to walk everywhere. I would've liked complimentary breakfast.
This hotel is all about location. If you are planning to stay in the downtown Chicago area choose a hotel that is next to river front and Club Quarters is one such hotel. Nothing really. Hotel lacks in complimentary services and some amenities like a refrigerator and a microwave oven in the Standard room type. Probably this is by design.
Clean nice facilities. Small.
The staff was great. TIm at the front desk was very helpful and patient. Very helpful with directions and suggestions for dining. The location couldn't have been better - right on the river front. Could walk the lake shore down to the aquarium and Field Museum. Walking distance to Magnificent Mile shopping . CTA stop is very close. Room was small, but clean Walls not that soundproof. Would have liked a complimentary breakfast, but there is a place right next door and an Einstein's Bagel a few blocks away.
Loved the location the staff and the bed Hated not having a tub , shower only . The room view was a metal structure and a concrete wall . The room was very small.
Beds very comfortable. Location was perfect. Lighting in bathroom not good at all. Height of tub could be a problem for kids and short adults.
This hotel has a really nice "members only" feel to it like a stodgy old man city club with out the stodginess. it is beautifully decorated and the rooms were not your usual doer and feel. There are so many different venues to choose from that we could have never led the hotel. The drinks and food are a bit pricey, but it fits. The only thing I would change about the room is that we wished there was an in room coffee maker. With all of the other stuff they put in the room to charge you for, a coffee make would have been nice. Also, we had to order ice from guest services as there are no ice machines on the floor.
Service is some of the best in the industry. Placing hotels like W, and other botuques, even larger Four Season and that ilk, into the realm of service as imperious paridy. Returning in April with colleagues and clients from around the world for business meetings, fun, and knowledge that great service and an outstanding stay awaits.
Public spaces, vibe, decor, the radio in room. The inability to do a normal load of laundry -- either by myself or by the pound -- they only offered laundry with rates like $5 per pair of underwear was a major hassle/shockingly overpriced. Rooms are pretty small and most face an old factory-type building, but that's no big deal.
Great location, and beautiful view from the rooftop bar. Renovations in the building are really wonderful, and we enjoyed having coffee in the morning in the lobby area. Unfortunately, the hotel can't decide if it's catering to its guests, or the long line of people waiting to get up to the rooftop. Elevators were extremely slow, and we were told not to take the stairs, even though there was no sign saying staff only. Additionally, the design of the room trumps function. I wish there was a place to hang my towels. And it was dark--I had to move my suitcase underneath the light to find my clothes. And yes, the shower leaked everywhere and was a little cold. But it all looked nice.
Very unique hotel with cool public spaces and furnishings. Friendly, helpful staff. across the street from the cloud sculpture at millennium park. Highly recommend!
Great location, helpful staff, and clean rooms. The "jewlers row" theme is a nice touch.
The location was excellent. Toilet ran all night, mold in the shower, rooms exceptionally small, no convenient place for computer.
Rooms are comfortable and well maintained Convenient location across from the Goddess and the Baker and of course a short distance from the Bean (Millenium park) Very friendly helpful staff
Was a bit of a mess but it will end. Not all rooms have a desk for computers
Talk to Bennie when you get there. He'll get you set up downtown.
We got a great rate on kayak. The room was spacious, bathroom was huge, and shower was great. Lots of storage and hangers. Staff was extremely helpful, very nice, and very quick when help was needed. The view of the room was awful. We looked at a very dirty alleyway with a view of a brick wall. Also our truck was damaged by the valet service. They assured us they would make it right, so that's why I still gave them 4 stars.
I liked that it was close to everything we wanted! The wifi was slow! They had no ice machines in the hallways so we had to call every time for the front desk to being some to us. When entering the hotel it had a clean but smelly odor it was weird! We requwsted with a nice view but we got the back of another buildings view! The shower had some mold!
Loved the atmosphere, very pretty, very nice hotel. Had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend it.
Didn't stay here long but got upgraded to a beautiful suite. Great facilities, decor, etc. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Definitely a great choice!
Location, location, location Two blocks from Chicago 'bean' - cloud gate and parks. Front of hotel with construction for 'E' was not pretty -- but we never heard any noise in our room.
Everyone was just so helpful - whether it was advice on the train system, to off the beaten path restaurants or activities, all of the staff went out of their way to help us enjoy our trip to Chicago. The room was very quiet - we seldom heard any noise outside of our door. There was a bit of construction outside the hotel, but even that added to the peace we felt at the facility.
The location was nice. Boring hotel, average style rooms and amenities for the price range hotel
The Loews was an overall excellent experience. From arrival to departure the service was spot on. The hotel was not only very clean but excellently staffed. Everyone who worked for the hotel was more than willing to assist you in any matter you may need and were very polite. The front desk employees were extremely helpful with everything from advice on night life to helping make sure all my bases were covered on a very special between my lady and I. (thank you very much Noah for going above and beyond... We both thank you for helping us have a great night). It was very apparent that the employees took pride in their jobs and strived to accommodate all guest the best they could. The hotel had a great energy and was a very positive atmosphere. The hotel flowed extremely well and was decorated beautifully. The rooms were spacious and felt very secure. The hotel was in a very low key part of the city, it was surrounded by places you would want to go in Chicago (ie. Restaurants, bars, navy pier, magnificent mile etc..) overall excellent experience and we will be back. None, accommodations were excellent.
The hotel is brand new and it shows. It's beautifully furnished, comfortable, and very trendy. The location is perfect, right in the middle of everything with extraordinary views. There was a strange smell in the room whenever we left for a while. The staff was friendly but also inexperienced, as they tended to hover and be a little over-bearing. In addition, the front desk staff provided us with false information and accidentally billed us close to $300 that has yet to be taken off my credit card bill.
+The staff was friendly, welcoming, and very accommodating for pets and special needs to make our experience more enjoyable. . +In the heart of chicago. +The room was spacious and well decorated. +Staff would try to find you a taxi or help with finding the best Chicago pizza. -Clean up staff did not come everyday to change the towels and bed sheets. This was sad and frustrating for a luxury hotel -The parking situation for self parking is expensive for multiple days unlike other hotels next to it. Hopefully they can come up with a discounted rate for extended parking with Loews for next time. -The tv stopped working for a few hours one evening during our stay.
I have stayed in many upper end hotels in Chicago and this property has a great location, great staff, rooms are fabulous and an overall great stay. I would definitely recommend this hotel and will stay again.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. The whole Hotel (Lobby, floor, Rooms, ...) is furnished very tastefully. Great Swimmingpool. The Location of the loews Hotel is absolutely perfect! Close to the River and lakefront Trail. Good starting Point, so you can explore North and South of the City. Lots of Restaurants and supermarket across the street. We definitely recommend the loews Chicago hotel! Nothing - everything was Great!
Great gym and lap pool. Love the common areas, like the lobby bar. Appreciated having a Starbucks IN the hotel. Self park garage was far.
very clean no full length mirror in the room
Great customer service! The staff was very helpful and informative. The Manager spent about 20 minutes with us outlining key points on a map he provided of places to go and things to see as well as the walking distance from the hotel. The whole staff was very friendly. The ambiance of the hotel decor & design was outstanding, not to mention the perfect view from our room. The location is superb & right in the center of Chicago's nightlife. The only thing that I didn't like about the place is that they shut down the pool area earlier than most hotels. But overall would rate this hotel a perfect 10. Great experience and would definitely recommend!
No available movies to watch in room.
I really liked the location of this hotel. Even though I booked it for a friend, I was next door at the Westin. One thing I REALLY loved was the fact that you need a key to use the elevators to go onto the floors. That was a perk. BUT. My room wasn't 100% cleaned. When I went to check in, I went up to the room and looked it over. There was leftover food in the mini fridge, there was a few bottles of alcoholic drinks missing that Im hoping Im not going to be charged for, even thought house keeping came up and told me I wouldn't be charged. NOT only that, there were condoms(unused) and a bottle of lube left in the room. My only issues...
So ridiculous paying 19$ for wifi
Cool, hip decor, great location to restaurants and 10Pin Bowling alley, just steps away from House of Blues, walking distance to shopping district and theater district, Marina Parking garage has great rates just next door. Finishes could use a makeover, I have stayed there for years and it could use an update. Would rather see a walk in shower instead of cheaper looking old tubs (however OUTSTANDING water pressure). Breakfast is a little pricey too.
Location Rate Small room and bathroom Hotel could have been cleaner. Room temperature hard to regulate Very dated
Beautufully located in downtown Chicago, we enjoyed close proxumity to restaurants and attractions. The room had most everything one would expect, except a mini-fridge. We did not get to dine in the hotel but the bar and restaurant both looked great. Our 8th floor room had a brief view of the river but was obstructed by the parking garage. Parking is $71. We chose to park 4 blocks away ($20 overnight).
Overall hotel is good...good location, nice athmosphere, etc Bugs in the bed! ... Woman hair in the bed! ... Air conditioner not working properly....
Location in the heart of Chicago downtown. Lack of concern for the interests of customers. I was a Marriot Gold Elite member and after this recent stay I felt like I should quit the reward program for good.
Location is perfect you can literally walk to 5 STAR restaurants and catching a cab or uber no problem. The staff was great, my room was a little small with no view and when I asked to switch rooms they gave me a much bigger room with water/bridge view of the city on the 11th floor. The staff are very friendly and they made me feel at home. I'm from California and its always nice to feel welcome and greeted with a smile. The bathroom shower head is amazing you will want to stay as long as you can in the shower. The set up of the room is beautiful and modern. The view and large space in room is amazing, but the walls are thin and I can hear the elevator going up and down day and night and people talking in the hallways. I'm really big with bathrooms and I didn't like how the bathroom floor felt on my feet.
The rooms are nice size, it's in a great location, the fitness center is nice and the bar is popular. The rooms have an eclectic look. The beds are comfortable and the hotel is quiet. The staff was attentive and curtious. The price was very good for the location. We ordered food at the bar and they checked on it twice but it never came. Everything else was great
Nice , good location.
