The hotel is historic, but apart from the lobby, which is impressive, the historic details are not well preserved, so overall it feels less like a grand old hotel and more like just an old and run-down hotel. The room was small; carpet was worn out; drapes hideous; no fan in the bathroom; a tray of junk food was set out on display front of the bed, which could not be moved without incurring a charge, so it was like we were sleeping in a convenience store.
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
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.
Walk into the grand lobby and you feel like you're part of Chicago history. The rooms are a little small.
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.
Décor in the lobby was fantastic, staff in the restaurant were wonderfully attentive. Excessive noise due to an event with 200 high school and young adults. They were allowed to run up and down the stair wells until 4am even after complaining to the front desk. I expected the Palmer House to be luxury accommodations, but found in reality they do not care about their guests. Host at the Honors desk was very short and abrupt.
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.
Efficient and clean
We had a lovely room, very well decorated. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. It was quiet and the staff was extremely personable whenever we came across them. The lobby itself is worth a visit. It's like stepping into a guided yesteryear. The paint on the back of the bathroom door was flaking. The tv is too small and it was hard to get the remote to work with it from the beds.
Gorgeous lobby with polite staff. The bed was incredibly comfy and the room fairly clean. We had a room that shared a door with another room. It was EXTREMELY loud despite the gentlemen next door speaking in normal volume levels. They had their tv quite low, yet we could hear every word. It made us very uncomfortable. We chose not to make a fuss out of it since we had a terrible drive in and we were only staying one night. The bathroom was TINY.
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 loved the location, the room and the view- just didn't like being next to the elevator. Other than that- it was great!!
staff super professional and freindly location is great rooms are great price to valet parking "free" WIFI in rooms, weak
I stayed here for business and also leisure. I chose this hotel based off of location and it was perfectly placed near all of the great tourism spots in the city. I walked everywhere all weekend, which is a great way to burn off all the delicious food Chicago has to offer. The view from the room of the city and the Chicago river is spectacular. The hotel staff was extremely nice, accommodating and the rooms were very clean. The parking fee to keep your car there during your stay is astronomical. We received a note card saying we get a "free gift" for staying there in our room the first morning we were there. When we turned it in, it was a free vacation only if you were over 28 and married and your spouse was staying with you, which I didn't qualify for as my spouse was at home. Because of that, I received one drink with an appetizer purchase (so not a free gift if you have to buy something ) at the hotel resturant. I think gimmicks like this are insulting and a waste of the guests time.
Loved the view from our room. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Some of the bellhop men could be more friendly but besides that it was a very amazing stay for our family!
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
Great people! Helpful and personal service. We requested a river view room (def worth the extra $$!) and were surprised with an amazing corner room with the greatest views! This location is better than staying up in the Mag Mile area if you plan on seeing the sights. Short walk to Millenium Park, Art Institute, and the L. And you are right at the base of the Mag Mile. Loved being on the river more than I can say! The room was clean and comfy, not a five star hotel but a very acceptable four star. The restaurant/bar is not wonderful, but we don't go to Chicago to eat in the hotel. The shower had one of those fancy yet totally impractical giant shower heads that comes down from the center of the ceiling. A trend that needs to go away.
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
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.
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.
I loved that we had a mini sofa in our room. I would have liked a mirror outside of the bathroom - 4 people had to share one mirror for hair, makeup etc.
Great last minute room rate. Odors in lobby and hallway. Exhaust problems from kitchen.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Wonderful room! At least 2 ice machines were not operational.
Massive hotel. too big. very unpersonal. conference hotel and for group travel.
Overall good stay here, the lobby is great with friendly front desk staff and the Big Bar is pretty cool to grab a couple drinks. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. The bell hop that helped us with our bags was extremely rude and not helpful. Also the bartender we had was not very pleasant.
Centrally located and accessible to tourist attractions. Friendly knowledgeable staff. Value priced.
almost everything $65 for parking at their hotel. too much for guest
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.
Easy walk to many restaurant, sites and public transportation.
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.
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
Excellent value for money. Huge room/suite. No shower pressure
Comfortable, great location, clean and spacious - exactly what we needed for a short trip to Chicago.
We liked the over-sized room that was clean and close to everything that we wanted to do. The staff was friendly & helpful. The parking issues others note really was not that big of a deal. The hotel is quiet and in our opinion, a fantastic value.
Loved this hotel!!! Staff was really friendly and helpfull, the room was a great size and the view just amazing. The location is excellent - close to the attractions, shopping malls and the public transport.
We were on the 23rd floor and the view of the City was increadable. The room was wonderful, very clean, and every detail was taken care of. I would highly recomend the Comfort Suites Michigan Avenue to all my friends. Every day we had to go to the lobby to get our key cards re-magnatised.
The suite was spacious, with separate bedroom and sitting areas, a kitchen, two televisions, a large desk, breakfast bar and lots of windows. The bathroom was recently renovated and extremely clean, as was the rest of the room. It was very quiet. I wished that the wireless internet service was available in room, rather than just in the lobby. The free breakfast was unremarkable. The location was within fairly easy walking distance of many attractions, but there were very few restaurants to choose from in the immediate vicinity of the hotel.
Location could not be better. The suit was really very comfortable with washing maschine, kitchen and 2 TV not
The comfort of the hotel That the hotel don't have a free parking for the guests, that is the worst.
It's a great place to stay
Location, staff, clean and with the exception of very little water on the 25 th floor, very nice. The hotel lacked water for bathing. We stayed on the 25th floor and were told that was the reason. Interesting
I could not find anything that I disliked. I drove to Chicago and used the valet parking which was very convenient.
Excellent location, check in, check out was very efficient. Liked the bottled water in the hall by the elevators.
Our room was awesome. Very very comfortable!
the location is very good. The room clean service.
Very close to the city centre with excellent views of the river and a very comfortable room Soaps, shampoos, milks and tea were not replenished
The staff were helpful, friendly. The location was ideal - central and walking distance to most things we wanted to see and do. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. The water they make available near the lifts on each floor was a welcome treat since the weather was very hot during our stay. We also stayed with them for our 2nd visit to Chicago.
close to Michigan Avenue bad noise in duct everytime air came on. kept me awake most of the night. advertised as 2 room suite, but NOT 2 separate rooms - very misleading.
This hotel is good, but the better is your localization. It's closer River and Michigan Ave. It's do not have breakfast.
Allowed to check in early. Tv screens are too small
the hotel is very neat. it seemed to me that there were very few staff around at any given time and that made me to feel isolated and virtually alone. the service points appear all automated and as a result, the human touch was absent.
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
It's hard to exactly explain the understated but rich comfort of the Silversmith.They've put a lot of effort into getting the interior design just right, in the lobby as well as in the rooms, both of which are very comfortable. The staff is welcoming and friendly. All in all this is one of the best hotels we've ever stayed at, and we've stayed at many. I guess in a nutshell I would say it reminds me of a Kimpton hotel, but with a more quietly dignified attitude. I was underwhelmed by the restaurant downstairs, but it doesn't really matter since there are plenty of dining options in that part of the Loop
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.
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.
Loved the atmosphere, very pretty, very nice hotel. Had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend it.
This is a charming boutique hotel in the heart of the South Loop. Well worth a stay.
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!
Like the decor, rooms were warm and clean, bathroom big and well-lit. Gym was fine, too
I was delighted to be upgraded to a suite, which was very attractively and comfortably furnished - I'm a fan of Mission style. The location is great. Only a few yards away from the Madison-Wabash CTA stop, easy walking distance to Millenium Park, Art Institute of Chicago, the lakefront, many fine restaurants, and the Lyric Opera. Having Ada's downstairs is also a plus for breakfast or lunch. I wish the hotel would provide real glasses for drinking instead of soft plastic cups.
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.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Large and comfy rooms. Beautifully designed entry way. Wine hour at 5pm was great. Close to shopping, restaurants and museums. Ended up with a room that had absolutely no view. Room cleaning could have been better, but nothing gross. Those two things made the $190 plus tax per night room a little too expensive.
Great location and a very good hotel overall No tea or coffee facilities in the room.
Very comfortable, nice different decoration, excellent service, personnel, complimentary wine between 5-6pm. Few blocks from Billy Eliot's musical (must see!). Great restaurant close by, Catch 35! Nice walk to Mgnif. Mile. Allow 1 hour to airport due to traffic. nothing
Excellent location, clean comfortable room, polite helpful staff, free wine & snack every evening.... Nothing
We enjoyed the wine reception and the taste breakfast in the adjecent restaurant. The hotel is located right in the heart of Chicago and pleasantlly quiet. The hotel does not provide slipers.
Stylish, friendly staff, good location. Lovely L'Occetaine toiletries, but putting bath products (those bath "bombs") for sale in the bathroom is tacky. Either offer them as an amenity or don't put them out at all. Same with the "animal" socks. Hotel rooms aren't department stores. Coffee in the lobby was excellent. It would be nice if you could add a small selection of rolls or muffins to complement the coffee. And it would be great if the coffee service was offered until noon or even later. Asked for and received a quiet room. However, the trade off was a room overlooking a service roof/steakhouse sign, with no view of the beautiful city of Chicago. I would imagine a quiet room can be had without sacrificing a city view. Don't double glazed windows block out noise? The room was dark because of the lack of natural light and somewhat depressing. Prior to my visit I joined the Kimpton club, but the front desk had no record of my membership. Membership is supposed to offer a number of benefits, including preferred newspaper delivered to the room, but I only received the requested ny Times one day out of the three I stayed at the hotel. Pad and pen (I took them with me when I went out) were not replaced during my stay
This is a very nice and comfortable hotel. Rooms are nicely decorated and the bed was excellent. Also free WiFi. I will definitely book this hotel again on one of my business trips to Chicago.
Everything..great fluffy pancakes at breakfast I love this hotel.For some reason when I checked in they thought I had requested an adjoining room (I did not)and did not have me scheduled for a room with 2 beds that I had reserved. However they did some juggling and gave me the type of room I had requested.
Location was central to everything and the staff was very helpful. Toilet paper was really poor quality. Minor problem with the bill that was quickly settled.
Great, attentive staff. Terrific location by the river. Comfortable bed. Lobby Door staff was extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming. Expensive for what you get. Room a/c is on energy saving computer load management, so it can take ten minutes to respond. River view 7th floor deluxe king Room had one uncomfortable arm chair, and a tiny sliver of a window that allowed one to see the bridge over the river, but, no water or boats. Exercise room was a joke, just A universal and dumbells. Free morning coffee a plus, but offset with tiny cups and mediocre coffee blend. Free evening wine was nice, but unlike far less expensive embassy suites, no snacks offered.
Great location. Morning coffee and afternoon wine. The room was too dark. There is inadequate lighting. Pillows were feather but far too soft.
Breakfast no flexibility, no helpful staff
A beautiful hotel in an excellent location. The best service I have ever experienced in a hotel. The room was large and beautiful. Excellent beds - I slept really well. Overall a great experience!
Great service and attention to detail. Very guest oriented and helpful. $50 for overnight parking.
Large room; very clean; excellent location Lack of countertop space in bathroom
The fancy coffe pot in the room. Just simply give me a Mr. Coffe machine that is a no brainer. We also stayed in the room when we had to switch the clocks back. No way, no how could we figure out how to move the time back one hour. Stupid things, but iratating.
large suite good for family Location far from restaurants, other popular spots. Shower drain did not work and overflowed requiring multiple staff visits. Long waits for elevators. Room adjacent to elevator. Not generally up to character of other Fairmont hotels.
Very caring/warm/genuine staff. Outstanding view of park from room. Great breakfast in room and "rainfall" showerheads were very relaxing. A bit away from the shopping but they have a Bentley to help with transport. Could not secure a late check-out but hotel was fully booked so this was understandable.
location is great My wake up call never came. I was late for an appointment
Very convenient location right on Michigan Ave. You won't run out of places to eat or stores to shop. I'm a music enthusiast and the memorabilia on the walls is a nice touch. Also a guitarist and the ability to have your own guitar brought to your room to play was pretty sweet. A Jamaican style bar club along with a nice steak/bar restaurant are in it (Although a little pricey) Been to many hotels due to my line of work. Although the ambience is nice Its not much more then anything you'd find at a Holiday Inn or Hampton. Seems a bit on the older side. Don't know about the more expensive rooms. But ours did not come with a fridge or microwave ( you can purchase them)
We were on the 23rd floor right next to the stairwell, and I have no idea where the noise came from, but all day and all night there was a loud knocking/banging noise, followed by a revving noise that would come from a machine, that continued nonstop. We were not near the elevators, so we ruled that out. It was impossible to sleep, even with the tv on and my white noise sleep app. Ridiculous. I don't know if the rooms booked on kayak are the crappy, noisy rooms because of the good price, but I will not be staying at the Hard Rock again.
Location is great Slow elevators asked for a room on the upper level with a View, received a room on the fourth floor facing an AC unit. Not cool HRH
The geographic location was the best !! A little no frills.
It has a great location for downtown shopping and dinning Despite the fact I paid extra for the larger more luxurious room it was very small and came with no perks such as included parking. Parking was twice as much as the near by overnight lots in the area. The towels, sheets ect were very stiff and ruff with no robes in room. The staff seemed clueless on several amenities the hotel offered including an app for the tv that allowed you to order movies and control settings the same as a remote and thank goodness because the actual remote in the room did not work. Also there were added charges to the bill that had to be disputed at checkout all were resolved but it added frustration onto an already Less than pleasant experience. We will not be staying there again.
Location and decor The bar
I usually love the Hard Rock with its funky style and fun atmosphere, but this time the room was small and awkward poor lighting and not well appointed. I am used to the minimalist approach but this wasn't even a fun or modern feel - seemed just more drab. The staff was great just the rooms seem so much more run down and drab than the other hotel we used during our Chicago trip.
Location was good Rooms were small, holes in the walls and dinged mirrors. Humid rooms and beds were not the softest.
Staff was helpful. facilities were clean Floor wasnt finished week. Tiles in bathroom were not fully set.
Location was central to all the attractions. Cleanliness of the shower.
It was very pleasant get there early and having a room to do an early check in. The staff was excellent. Overall it was a good hotel. The location of it was very impressive, close to every place, Willis Tower, Millennium Park, and Navy Pier. I think it's a little pricey, but given the location I think it's worth it.
Rooms were big and spacious, on state street and walking distance to Michigan Avenue and very popular for their restaurants. Housekeeping were take time to clean the rooms, I would go out from morning and come back and the room was still not cleaned.
One of the best hotels in Chicago. Ideal location to everything in the city, wonderful staff and service, Roof Top Bar is excellent. Overall best hotel experience I've had in Chicago.
Great location to everything in the city! You can walk to the Riverwalk which has so many things to do! very clean hotel and staff is so so accommodating and welcoming! The bed was very uncomfortable! Had a huge dip in the middle of the mattress! Other than that no complaints
The room was clean and interesting and the hotel well situated in the heart of things. Concierges were particularly accomodating. The rooftop lounge- to which guests get priority access seemed 'the' place to be at night The business centre ( internet access and printers) was painfully frigid and the computers not user friendly.
great location, service, & facility
Extremely convenient for getting to the Chicago Theatre.
Quite pleasant and well situated.
I couldn't reccommend this hotel enough. The staff are friendly and helpful, the location is cental to shops and restaurants, the hotel itself is very trendy while the rooms are very welcoming. And you get a warm cookie upon arrival - what more could you want! The "nature" sounds that are piped into the corridors - nice touch, but they woke me every morning!
The room was very comfortable, pretty and sexy:) I loved the skybar, and the gym. My only concern was the noise factor from the train and a clock that kept going off outside.
The fridge didn't work so the brought up a dented scratched fridge and set it in the middle of the room. The room was not clean. No hospitality. Way over priced!!!!
beautiful room, great amenities, very clean and modern some confusion at the front desk when checking in but it seemed to only be us
Couldn't ask for a better location. Comfortable rooms and good security and staff.
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.
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.
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.
I loved the location. We were able to walk everywhere. I would've liked complimentary breakfast.
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
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.
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.
parking was cheaper. the restaurant in the lobby sucked.
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.
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.
Location, rooms, breakfast
I appreciated the modern design of the room and the comfort of the bed. It was quiet and yet we were merely a walk away from everything that we were interested in seeing/visiting. I wish that I did not have to call from overseas just to confirm my reservation. The front desk personel reserved a nice room for us and made sure that we were not bumped from our room. I had to confirm 30 hours prior to our arrival since I was flying in from overseas and not arriving until 7p. This hotel is also fully non-smoking which was GREAT for me! The breakfast could be better. Once they ran low on food, they did not replenish.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is great Yeah, the housekeeping time were at different hours during our stay. Sometimes early sometimes later in the day. it would have been nice if the bathroom/toilet had been sealed to show they have been sanitized.
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.
The location of this hotel was great. We were in walking distance to everything we wanted to see. Valet and front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Housekeeping service was very good. The food at the continental breakfast was great, and varied from day to day. The only thing that could be improved is the breakfast area. Where the food is served is very congested and there are not many tables.
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.
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.
Location, cleanliness, staff. Its a minor thing, but choices of pillows are too thick for side and stomach sleepers. Parking expense.
The room was very clean and the bed was awesome. I liked the color choices for the room.
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.
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.
The staff were all very helpful and friendly, especially the woman at the front desk when we checked in. The location was excellent for walking and conveniently situated to mass transit. It was all pretty okay.
Great staff, good location. Restaurant is wonderful. Small room, older hotel/rooms, bed not so comfortable, no in room eats other than water/coffee. Definitely over priced.
Location, bedding, room decor. Wasn't notified of renovations by kayak nor Marriott, when I told the front desk this, I was told I should do my own research to make sure hotel isn't being renovated. Then the workers started a half hour earlier than I was told on Sunday morning, and when I called the front desk, nothing was done about it. They were constantly drilling directly above our room. I was given the wrong room and wasn't offered a switch when the correct room became available, and I left an item there after checking out and called two hours later and the item had gone missing from the room. When I called the customer care line, the hotel called back to apologize and did not offer anything to rectify the situation. Terrible stay, will not be booking there ever again.
We stayed here with our two older children (age 16 & 20) over July 4 weekend; an incredibly busy weekend for the city but this was an oasis of luxury. Recently renovated, hotel features a beautiful artistic lobby, excellent coffee/sandwich bar in lobby, lounging areas with couches, restaurant, bar. Rooms are deluxe, very comfortable beds, modern bathrooms, with gorgeous views of the city and nearby Chicago river.
Great location, nice room, beautiful bathroom, comfortable beds, steps from the orange line, State St. and Michigan Ave., Theatres, and museums. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. Great rice view. Libby music was a bit loud, but the younger crow probably would think that was great!
ALL staff that we incountered from valet to bellman house keeping and front desk were all very friendly and helpful. Having worked in the hotel industry it was easy to spot a top notch beautiful hotel with an amazing staff. Toilet was loose or unattached to the bathroom floor but still functioned properly.
Elevators require key each time to go up stairs
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.
Staff were amazing! They took care of all the details with great courtesy. The room was beautiful, the bed was super comfortable and everything was very clean. The Atwood Cafe food was delicious, and they modified reservations for us without a fuss. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to family and friends.
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 building, itself, is a renovated office building across from Macy's on State St. The location is ideal for sight seeing in the Loop. It's unique. A lot of art deco trim. It's nicely decorated, the staff is pleasant. They serve complimentary wine at 5 p.m. It's boutique hotel, not a monster one. The rooms are small.
Beautiful; FANTASTIC service provided by all areas; clean Mattresses were hard
I liked the location and the quite comfort of the room. I liked the variety of contents in the minibar, even though I didn't actually eat but one thing. My room was a little noisy, but I just wore earplugs and that worked out for the most part.
I had an excellent room with a view of both State and Washington Streets and Millenium Park!
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.
It was a beautiful hotel and a great experience valet parking price
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.
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.
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!
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!
Location, interior design, amenities
Room was amazing. Facilities (pool, fitness & game room) were phenominal
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
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.
Modern room, loved the shower.. Found the room servicw menu limited, very few items.
Its just 18 floors
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.
