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!
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.
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
The hotels staff was incredibly nice. The hotel itself was extremely clean. The location was perfect. It was close to everything touristic
I liked how friendly the staff are. I did not like how dusty the room was ( around the bed).
Friendly Staff Poor policies
Free bottles of water!! Very clean. The whole process was flawless! No breakfast options... Even fruit would have been a nice touch
Noisy elevators dinging loudly throughout night, guests speaking loudly in hallway, staff not very helpful
Nice clean rooms Parking was terrible
The staff are friendly and helpful. The room is clean.
Clean, professional, great guest services! The restaurant next door had terrible service. The hotel however was great!
The location was great and checking in and out was very easy. Complementary water bottles were also great!
Everything was great!
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.
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!
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.
Perfect for theater weekend. Great location, beautiful room . Thoughtful amenities.
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
Rooms were incredibly tiny. Elevators did not work.
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.
The room was perfectly sized and extremely comfortable. Not a single thing.
Very clean and friendly staff No iron in the room
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!
It was a great place to stay - stayed here for business travel. They're professional all around. Don't get a car here; expensive for parking. You shouldn't have one in Chicago anyway.
The room layouts are convenient, the cleanness of the hotel is up to par, and the hotel is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Chicago and there is a convenient social bar downstairs! Customer service representatives at the front desk were not helpful. I personally would not recommend this hotel before another hotel because of the service I received; but the hotel is very nice and in a great location.
Loved the free coffee and water on each level. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Walls were thin, and you could hear other guests making noises and playing music in their rooms.
My wife and I have always stayed north of the river but chose this one to stay in a different part of the city but be close to everything. We loved the location to CTA stops because used that to get around the city. We loved the location's proximity to basically anything that we needed. The staff was very informative and friendly. My wife enjoyed the chilled water bottle stations on each floor. The elevator runs very quick compared to other Chicago hotels that we have stayed at. The room service and food deliveries run late into the night. We purchased our room online so maybe we were not given the best room. Our room was in a "hole" of sorts. There was absolutely zero views from the small window and barely any sunshine. The size of the flatscreen tv left much to be desired. Most hotels now at least have a 40" tv. There was no microwave in the room and not one that we could access down in the lobby area. The bed was not overly comfortable. Again, we loved most things about hotel because we chose it more as a crash location, not a place to stay all day.
Great for a business trip where you don't spend a ton of time in the room. Not so great for a couple's getaway weekend. Room was rather small and room was in need of upgrades.
Location and value
Outstanding service and staff. The room was clean and they had a fitness room that wasn't busy. Also, they had these purified water stations on each floor. Very small room and the treadmills were pretty low quality.
Free wifi and free water. My "queen" bed was really two twin beds pushed together which lead to an uncomfortable nights sleep. The room was also the size of a closet but I was too exhausted from my flight to put up a stink.
TV service did not offer NBC and possibly ABC. Otherwise a great place and location. The other stay a couple of weeks ago - the phone did not work. Could't call to the front desk. Phone was dead and even after reporting this continued to be dead for the whole week.
The location is absolutely perfect if you're visiting Chicago from out of town. However, the rooms are small and basic so if you're not planning on staying in the room that much it's perfect.
We stayed at the Club Quarters because it's a block away from the Chicago passport office, and was reasonably priced. Checkin and staff were great, very helpful and attentive, very accommodating. The business center in the basement is very convenient, however, it didn't offer color printing and we were prepping for a visit to the passport office which required color printing. The staff have me a list of kinkos/fedex offices which offered color printing, however the list was outdated and I wasted an hour running all over the city following old information. I share this with the staff and hope they have updated the info. I would have gladly paid for color printing, and was wishing I spent the extra $$ to stay at a Hilton, which reliably has color printing.
Loved the staff at the Hyatt! They were amazingly helpful, especially Ariana who was there no matter what we needed. From the valets to the housekeepers they were so wonderful. The business center was very helpful and the latte's were delicious. The room was really quite loud. The air conditioner would kick on and wake me up several times a night. We were also close to the elevator (which I know is unavoidable) and could hear word for word the conversations in the hallway. This made for a rough night's sleep.
Central location Nice view Quiet room
Central location, nicely decorated, friendly and helpful staff
The overall experience was great - facilities, location and staff were wonderful The corner lounge was strange in terms of food offerings, everyone shows up for breakfast expecting to find dry cereal, bananas or a pop tart. Get rid of the candy and party mix and offer a minimal continental breakfast.
The view and the equipment of the hotel No breakfast provided
Room was nice, roomy bathroom, clean. Good location. The staff was nice. Roof top bar was enjoyable with good food and drinks. Price to keep the car over night was expensive.
The staff was awesome being able to get some obscure requests. The bed and pillows weren't very comfortable. And there weren't that many amenities.
Great location--close to everything we needed. Super friendly, helpful staff. Very comfortable accommodations. The bathroom was poorly separated from the bedroom. With a gap above the hanging door to the bathroom area and a much bigger gap above the glass door that made up the toilet room, it was almost like we were in there together. Not very romantic.
Well thought out hotel experience; great rooms and unique decor. It's a nice home away from home.
Staff was very friendly and very helpful. Rooms were clean and very nice. Only complaint was elevator on Sunday morning. Most people are trying to leave and the maid staff had most cars filled with there carts. Maybe staging a cart on every floor would help that congestion. Otherwise it was a great place to stay.
Desk staff quite friendly and helpful. Everything classy and elegant. Umbrella iin closet was a nice tough. Didn't patronize the Atrwood? Restaurant although attractive ambience, Prices were prohibitive. Cup of cofffee: #$4.00, Eggs bENEDICT: $15.00 Fugget about it.
Staff, each & every one from doormen, janitors to manager. Special shout out to Mark in maintenance and Darnell at front desk. We borrowed their bikes and had an excellent ride around the lake. View was awesome down State street. We arrived a early on Thursday morning and allowed to go right up to an available room. Room was small but meticulous in detail. Location could not be better!!! A minute's walk to blue line, red line and busses. All the shopping you can want steps from hotel. Millennium park and the Bean was 3-4 blocks away. There was nothing to complain about.
Beautiful; FANTASTIC service provided by all areas; clean Mattresses were hard
Loved all the old architectural features. The rooms were small but the architecture, view, location and excellent air conditioning made up for the size. My suggestion is to add a quiet seating area near the stairs and elevators on each floor so that guests that awaken early can read and have coffee while a child or partner sleeps. Joan
The hotel was perfect and beautiful. The style blended well with our modern tastes but need for historic romance. The beds... were... AMAZING. All the linens as well.
Warm, accommodating staff. Great location. Quaint, historic building. The hotel was more than adequate for our needs, but guests should not expect huge rooms.
We like the intimacy of the hotel. The staff made us feel welcome. The location is walking distance from theaters, shopping, lake front. Parking is very expensive: tip - 3 blocks west of the hotel is public parking lot and we paid $15 for the whole weekend.
air, food, location
I like the service at the front desk There were several employees at check in making sure no one is waiting. Rooms are excellent. They even upgraded me to a suite. Their executive lounge was extremely crowded and service was very poor there. Food was not getting replenished in time.
Clean room, quick check in/out. It was a little difficult to navigate building because front desk is on an upper floor.
downtown, friendly, clean, ammenities coupon for breakfast not adequate for two people. No Valet Parking. Not easy access from parking area. Too much walking to get to hotel lobby.
location was ok, although there are so many hotels downtown its not like you dont have choice way to expensive for what you get, i wouldnt stay here again for $220 night, i'm sure there is something better. rooms are typical 1994, boring patched up, siliconed but clean. if it was $120 a night then i might be ok. food at the restaurant was average but trying to be fancy, picture costco chicken parmesan all dressed up with wait staff in black trying to hard to be mod.
Great location,nice river view,clean room,available shop for the light breakfast on the first floor of the building,should provide more powerful hair dryer.
The staff was very hepful.
Nothing Paid for standard room and was told that's a sleeper couch in a room that is really the living room for a suite. Room also smelled like cat urine, couldn't stay there, booked a room at Hotel Intercontinental on Michigan Ave and was treated to a nice room and free breakfast.
I did like the room, it was very comfortable The parking fees
good location the cleanness of rooms, old hotel, expensice not included self-parking
room service was excelent. staff were very polite and helping.
The location is good, slightly away from the bustle of Michigan Avenue, but not too far. Everything is within walking distance and in a nice area. Nice, friendly staff. It would have been great to have a mini refrigerator in the room and the room temperature was a bit colder than my comfort level.
nothing special The way staff treat people and no concierge and no body to help
Very clean, nice room. Glass door on the bathroom let light in. The bed hurt my husband's back.
I travel to Chicago several times a year and I have to stay this was the best hotel I've ever stayed at. It is modern, clean, quiet and very centrally located. The most impressive thing is the staff. Everyone (from the front desk, to the cleaning ladies, etc.) is extremely helpful, polite (always say "hi"), ... I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone!
Loved the breakfast, definitely eat it! Great location to everything in the city. Room was comfortable and whole place was very clean. The lobby set-up. It's too small to handle a large crowd, especially if more than five are waiting to check-in.
Decent continental breakfast and nice clean rooms. Decor looks new and modern. Staff was very helpful. One block from an "L" station.
Having managed a hotel myself previously, I was pleased with how friendly, helpful, and quick the staff were in their attention to guests. Very clean and welcoming.
I like the location the best. Breakfast was ok but maybe offer more choices. Room had a mold smell and door locks were very loud when closing.
Free breakfast in the morning. The eggs were questionable though. My toilet didn't work.
Everything was in working order, staff was super friendly & professional. From the valet to the concierge to the bartender, they all made us feel taken care of! They asked the reason for our stay & we said it was our friends bday. They sent up a bottle of wine & a dessert for the bday girl. I was asked whether I wanted my receipt printed or emailed and I said emailed. I haven't received it so idk what my bill is yet :-/
Beautiful hotel with a great location. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I expected more for the price. We were upgraded when we checked in, which gave us a larger room. The bar in the front lobby was extremely expensive, had it not been so overpriced we would have spent more time there.
I loved our stay. So chic with a cool, modern, vibe. My kinda place. As a city girl, I appreciated the slanted bathtub that fully covered my body. It was nice to take a bath. Being on the inside of the courtyard was perfect for light coverage and news coverage. The bed was super comfortable and the room, no small, was hip and wonderful. We stayed for New Years Eve and just walked to all the festivities. It was perfect.! If people were loud, or had more than 5 people in a room, you could hear them through the wall clearly. You can also hear clearly outside the door. Also, the plumbing makes for great water pressure, but the downside is that you can hear loud plumbing through the walls when someone runs a bath or shower above you.
We enjoyed the location We didn't like the initial room. It smelled terrible and was tiny. The bathroom door was an inch from the toilet when it opened and there was no room to put our bags.
Downtown location. Liked the Bliss toiletries. Modern touches to the room like the uplighting under the bed and illuminated art. Very cool lobby and bar. Very small sink. Dated room. View of a back alley from our room. Small bed, no coffee maker. Small room. Way over priced for the quality.
Friendly staff Comfortable beds and rooms Convenient location Expensive wifi Expensive in-room dining
They gave me a bigger room when they found out it was my birthday. The room is nice. The lobby is spectacular. I could have spent a day relaxing in the Living Room. No problems really. Not much of a view.
Clean room, with plenty of supplies Small room, worked for a one night business stay, but wouldn't have worked for a longer stay.
1) Walls were so thin, we could hear neighbors talking on phone or to each other. 2) The sheets/bedding were like sand paper. I am not spoiled, so believe me when I say, that for a hotel of this price, they could have at least used a better quality of bedding. 3) The design of the hotel (rooms and common areas) is "tacky modern" -- Not sure who thought this looked work? 4) In short, spend your $250 else where and get a much better experience. On a scale from 1 to 10, I would give this stay a 5.
It's in the financial district downtown, the only con is location, it's very close to wills tower, millennium park, etc Rooms are extremely small, you can barely move around the bed, the bathroom as close to no space for putting your makeup or curling iron etc. the noise level is bad, at 03:00am Sunday night early Monday morning some girl was screaming and shouting on the phone, telling her friend or family to come get her. Unacceptable this went on for at least 15 minutes, I wanted to call security on her.
The ambiance of the hotel was fabulous ! Room was large and comfortable. .
Very posh, clean and pleasant stay. Will stay at this place again in the future. Being a very busy weekend during our stay, only a king bed was available instead of the double bed we requested. Reception was very nice and sent us a roll away bed without charge.
The room was very clean and the bed was awesome. I liked the color choices for the room.
Location, cleanliness, staff. Its a minor thing, but choices of pillows are too thick for side and stomach sleepers. Parking expense.
The hotel was well located for our purposes--within walking distance of shopping and many attractions. The room was clean, the bed comfortable, and staff efficient. Breakfast was the typical Hampton Inn fare which is good quality geared to a wide variety of tastes and preferences. The facility was an older building that had been retrofit. Our room was a little smaller than other Hampton's. This hotel is probably better suited to a couple than to a family with younger children. But it was efficient and did the job. Décor was funky and different which can work either way depending on perception. Overall, the space worked for us.
The room was comfortable and large enough to have a small sitting area. I liked the extra high ceilings because the room felt much larger than the floor space. The beds were comfortable and the furniture in good condition. There was a complementary coffee and tea bar in the lobby with fresh fruit and sometimes cookies. This was a nice stop over before heading back to the room. The breakfast closes on the dot at 10am. This isn't convenient because younger people (I'm 28 years old) like to sleep in a little later. I prefer to get going around 10 or 11am. This is a simple fix, extend the breakfast hours by an hour. I'd like to see more plants indoors at this hotel because the city starts to wear on me after a while and getting a fix of nature is relieving.
The staff was very friendly and the room was very clean and well appointed. The location is also very close to many of the attractions that we were seeking out. within walking distance of Millennium park and Navy Pier.
Location, rooms, breakfast
We loved being right next door to see Hamilton. Would recommend to everyone. No parking problems. valet was awesome. All the staff were very polite and helpful. We went New Years Eve so it was busy. We did have to wait for our room but the staff helped us get luggage to room so we could make our reservation for dinner. Teenagers loved the breakfast.
All of above. Check in very easy. Felt safe needing key to elevator upper floors. Great breakfast. Staff warm welcoming very helpful. Found an empty Jack Daniels fifth bottle under bed. Not ours.
Staff was great, very knowledgeable and quick to give recommendations and directions. Breakfast had a lot variety and protein and fresh fruit options. Walls were thin, I heard a conversation in the next room at 11pm. Also WIFI access was too complicated to log in from a smartphone that I gave up since I had very limited time in Chicago.
Stay here every time we are in Chicago. Nice having a balcony. Parking is $43 per night. Way too high when we walk everywhere we go.
Service and staff and proximity to grocery stores. Noise from Interstate.
view, walking distance to dining, willis tower rooms are too small, no refrigerator in room, shower water luke warm
Close to United Center, Greektown and Randolph St.restaurants. There was construction going on in the parking lot that you see in the picture above,therefore there was no parking on site and the noise from construction started at 7 AM. Way too loud to sleep.....and we requested a late check out so we could sleep in after a Blackhawks playoff game!!!LOL LOL LOL. Couldn't take it and left by 10:30.
Loved the modern room designs, layout, and furnishings. Very helpful, friendly staff. Great location to access downtown and the "L" to see the rest of Chicago. The bathroom didn't seem to have a fan to get rid of shower steam.
The staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was fantastic, love the balcony. Thank you for a hotel chain finally realizing that not all people are 5 foot 8 inches tall, it was nice to be able to shower without having to squat to wash my hair, kudos for the adjustable shower heads. Having to pay to park in the lot of the hotel i was already paying to stay in.
My family and me stated at your establishment for one night on Sept 15. Beautiful hotel, great accommodations and conveniently located. Really appreciate your wonderful service Couldn't stay longer
