Hotels Near Bottlefork In Chicago
0.05km from BottleforkHad our stay been pre-covid I would’ve given all five stars. But with masks and covid I have to leave four. First thing after we woke up the morning of checkout my boyfriend left our room to go outside of the hotel for a minute. As we’d just woken up without thinking he left without his mask. When he got to the lobby staff reminded him that he needed to wear a mask in the lobby. Now normally that wouldn’t be a problem, but his response, “oh, sh!t my bad” got him yelled at for cussing in the lobby. It’s not like he yelled it and it wasn’t intentional. In my opinion, that was a little unnecessary and prude if someone can’t handle that. Yes I understand kids being around and such but there were not kids around at the time.
0.06km from BottleforkFlawless check-in; front desk people were all courteous and helpful; super clean room; flawless check-in; located near restaurants; walking distance to Navy Pier or Modern Art Museum; a longer walk to Millennium park but doable; multiple ride share cars nearby-2min or less wait time (although it was during off season); breakfast was excellent-the attendants keep it well stocked and are helpful; comfy beds; feels safe around the building; excellent shower pressure; the only hiccup was the fire station located nearby-multiple calls for fire station during stay awoke us but we fell back asleep on comfy beds-complimentary earplugs are provided though. We were here during the off season but it was still pretty busy gauged by the trickling people during breakfast-heed the helpful breakfast signs about time and crowds found in the elevators if you stay.
0.11km from BottleforkThis hotel is a fine property - but it is NOT set up for people who have cars and intend to valet them. There is no provision for anywhere to stop and go in and check in, no signs indicating that if you are going to valet that you need to drive to another street, and no valet attendants on station when you get there. I have no idea how the management of this hotel has process mapped the customer experience when using the valet is concerned. We got to the hotel location at about 8:00 p.m. and there are obviously not going to be any spots as far as street parking anywhere near the hotel to even be able to walk in. So, having gone around the block twice, I finally decided to pull in to where there was a sign for a valet for another Marriott property (Residence Inn). There are no signs there saying what you should do, nowhere for a car to be parked to wait, and no valet attendants there. Finding my way into the hotel I told the person at the desk that I had a car to valet and she absolutely jumped into the situation, went outside, and coordinated with the valet and ultimately got things under control. However - while this was going on there were people coming up to my wife who was in the car and telling her that if she didn't move it from the alley behind the hotel that they were going to tow the car. As a customer, it appeared to me that that had been not a single thought given to "So, when a guest comes in with a car to valet - what do we expect them to do?" Leaving was a very similar unpleasant experience. I called down at 12:40 to have my car brought around and was told it would be 20-30 minutes. We went down to the lobby a few minutes after one, and were told where the valet staff would come in when the car was there. 20 minutes later (40 minutes after we called down) a valet attendant came in looking for another car that I could hear the front desk staff had taken a call for while we were waiting downstairs and when I asked the valet attendant about mine, he said "Oh, I'll take care of it." So it appeared that my call had never been relayed to the valet staff. At 1:30 (50 minutes after I called down for it) I had my car. The hotel is nice enough, and I'll be the first to admit that as a guy in his 50s with a car, I'm probably not their target demo. I get that it's located in as urban an area as you'll find, and that parking is really, really tough. So just communicate to me that "You know, this might not be the best fit for you if you're bringing your car." That way if I decided to still do so, I'm the one making that call. But either way - if you are going to offer valet parking at your location, it seems to me that you have to put some thought into how your guests are actually going to - you know - USE it. That's the only complaint I have - but it provided a lousy experience both checking in and checking out, and thus taints the entire stay there. If I ever were to return, I would only do so if I didn't have a ca
0.11km from BottleforkI chose the hotel because of its location. Its bang in Downtown with close proximity to all the happening places in the city. I was here on Christmas and as luck would have it everything was closed. The receptionist was kind enough to hand over a leaflet with a list of restaurants operating and offering deliveries to the hotel- That was a lovely caring touch for travelers who were checking in after 6:00 PM (like me) Day 2 and 3 were amazing. I could walk out and tour any part of the city thanks to number of bus stops and underground MTA stations nearby in close proximity. My favorite Starbucks was just around the corner and so were quite a few huge departmental store, 7 Eleven outlets and Subway-around the corner. Overall the stay was awesome- rooms were big, sleep quality awesome, toiletries in plenty and cleanliness a huge plus point. I would love to stay here again. The only flip side of the stay was the breakfast which was awful. Good things about the property: Location: Prime 5 Star Staff: Helpful and cordial 5 Star Sleep Quality: Peaceful 5 Star Cleanliness: Neat 5 Star Not so good thing about the Property: Breakfast: Passable 2.5 Star (No offense but that’s the case with the other 3 properties of Hampton I stayed in US as well – Providence as well as Manhattan. Only surprise was Hampton by Hilton in Berlin City Centre where the Breakfast was just amazing – Probably because it was Europe)
0.12km from BottleforkI lived in this hotel for over a month, from mid February to mid March. The place was chosen by my company, since it was a business trip. It's today and I can't stop thanking them, because it became my home even when I was so far away from my family. The hotel is beautiful, and you have no idea how much I miss the amazing apartment/ hotel room I had there. The kitchen was fully furnished and working. The bed was incredible confortable, and the view was breathtaking. The hotel also has a swimming pool, gym and laundry room. BUT, the most amazing thing this hotel has is the people that work in. They made me feel like I was in my home, they took care of myself, they were friendly, they were the best staff I've known. I never had a single issue, and they were always lookinf for making my stay more pleaseant. The ladies who work in the breaksfast room are the most kind, loving and sweet "mothers and sisters" you could find in the city, and the staff who worked at the front desk as well as the bellhop, are the most helpful and wonderful people I've met when traveling. If you are thinking about staying at a warm place, a second home, don't hesitate and come to the Residence Inn Chicago (the river north one).
0.13km from BottleforkThe hotel was good and had everything we needed for our stay. The location was great and ideal for exploring the city. John in particular on the front desk was really helpful and friendly throughout our stay. My only real criticism was that the hotel has a long was to go in terms of sustainability. In our rooms the coffee cups were disposable and even at breakfast the plates, cups and cutlery were all disposable. This is really unnecessary. It would be absolutely be possible to make these all things that can be washed and reused. In addition we were told that if we were happy to reuse our towels we just had to hang them up. Despite doing this, they were replaced every day, We would have been happy to use the towels to be more enviornmentally friendly but weren't given the option.
0.19km from BottleforkWe stayed at the Kinzie hotel from March 2 through March 7. Martin, the hotel manager, went out of his way to accommodate us with our requested room. Service was outstanding from every employee; doorman, housekeeping, front desk, bartender, and even the maintenance person. Location couldn’t be better. I loved the layout of the room with a long desk bar in the bedroom and a full countertop in the bathroom (no lousy non-functional decorative pedestal sinks in this hotel). An empty refrigerator was available in the room, perfect for in room beverages. We’ve stayed here multiple times and look forward to returning.
0.23km from BottleforkI can't even say enough about how great the Moxy in Chicago was! We arrived way before our check-in time because we had an early flight. Since our room was not quite ready yet, they held our bags for us while we walked around the corner to get a bite to eat. They had our room ready for us at noon which I believe was 4 hours before our actual check-in time. The atmosphere was fun and casual, which was right up our alley. There are games scattered around on the tables which I thought was fun and there is a 24 hour taco joint attached to the hotel as well. I think I tried almost all of the taco choices and they were great! Kylie at the front desk is so sweet and helpful and so was Ellen, the assistant manager. The bartenders were super fun and always willing to give a suggestion on things to do. When we travel, we typically like to see what the locals enjoy doing and every suggestion they gave us was spot on!! I really wish I could remember all of the bartenders that helped us, but I remember Brandon and JJ right off the top of my head. We will definitely be back to the Moxy next time we visit Chicago!
0.24km from BottleforkWe were in Chicago to visit museums and see the sights. This hotel was a perfect choice as it was clean and comfortable. We made use of the pool, but mostly we were there just to sleep and relax after a busy day sightseeing. The staff was friendly and helpful. There were many restaurants nearby and parking was reasonable on site. We had a great worry free stay. We would not hesitate to return.
Very Good3 Reviews
0.25km from BottleforkHotel- Kimpton Palomar Chicago Date- 11/4 – 11/6 (2 nights) Overall: 4/5. Very good. We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It is disappointing that this property is leaving the brand. Rewards Club Recognition- 4/5. Very good. We were verbally thanked for our loyalty, and our room was upgraded to a corner ‘King Spa Premier Room,’ and we were given welcome amenity points. Staff- 5/5. Excellent. Sarah, at the reception, was wonderful. She checked us into the hotel, and she remembered speaking to us on the phone once when we had to make a sudden schedule change. She was welcoming and informative. When I asked for a coffee maker and a minifridge to use, she promptly had the items sent up to my room. Mark was engaging and accommodating as well. Property Appearance & Maintenance- 4/5. Very good. Exterior- 3/5. Average. The exterior looks like it may be an office building. Because the lobby living room isn’t open for seating, from the outside, the hotel looks stark. Branding was appropriate. Interior- 5/5. Excellent. The carpets, walls, & light fixtures in the hallways and lobby were clean and well maintained. Accommodations- 4/5. Very good. Our corner ‘King Spa Premier Room’ was just right for us. Spacious enough for us to get comfortable, we (& our pet) settled in quickly. The bathtub was a nice addition to the corner shower. The bedding was comfortable, and the furnishings were in good repair. Housekeeping- 5/5. Excellent. The room was clean, the carpets vacuumed, and the bathroom spotless. Toiletry items & towels were provided in a supply adequate for the length of our stay. The carpets had no noticeable stains; all lighting worked. Pool/Gym- 4/5. The pool on the 17th floor is closed during the pandemic. The gym is available with social distancing guidelines. Breakfast/Meal Options- 3/5. Average. The hotel restaurant was closed and only a limited set of items were available for purchase at the front desk (the minibars have been emptied during the pandemic). The wine/social hour has been suspended during the pandemic, and usual coffee service is unavailable; a keurig coffee maker can be sent to your room instead. For wine hour, on our second night, the hotel did provide a bottle of wine since lobby consumption wasn’t possible. Since we brought some food to keep cold, the front desk did send up a mini fridge, in addition to the minibar fridge. Laundry- not evaluated. The laundry bag had been removed from the room, but the pricing sheet was still present; pricing was as expected for a hotel of this class. Computer/Printer/WiFi- 5/5. WiFi was strong throughout the hotel, and streaming was smooth. Other- A small terrace is available on the 17th floor, which provides views of the city below.
0.25km from BottleforkThe Good: - Fantastic location right near the river on State Street. - Easy walk to shopping and theaters on State Street - Unbelievable government rate for a Chicago Hotel. Far below the official Per Diem rate. - Super friendly valet people that park your car. - Was upgraded to a huge suite with two full bath rooms and great river view. - Front desk people were all very helpful and friendly. - Concierge lounge just off the lobby was big and beautiful - Lounge was open on the weekend for breakfast and to get water and soda. - Breakfast in the lounge was one of the best lounge breakfast we have ever had. - Elevators were fast - Floor to ceiling windows in the room and living area. Maybe could improve - Furniture in the room seemed banged up and dated - Light near the bed was falling off the wall - No USB ports (only plugs) on night stand. - Beautiful floor to ceiling windows were very dirty. I guess they need a spring cleaning. - Almost $80 a night for parking. I realize other hotels in the area are the same, but that is so high. It was more than my great room rate. Maybe a discount if you are a Bonvoy Elite member. - No snacks, coffee or evening service in the concierge lounge. Kind of expect coffee, tea, and snacks during the day in a nice hotel like this. Was able to get water and soda. - There were some hairs in the shower stall. - Bath robe was on the small side. - TV's did not have the newest Marriott operating system where you can easily access Netflix and HBO Go.
0.27km from BottleforkWe stayed here for a weekend recently. The staff was welcoming and friendly. They greeted us every time we came into the hotel. When I checked in, the front desk staff person was very nice. She was smiling and joking with me, offering me waters. The room was a typical hotel room, no extra frills. The only thing that irritated me is that our fridge did not work. It said it was in energy saving mode, so we turned on the temp control, but it never got cold. The bathroom was older but very clean. The bed was super comfy, and we slept well. We walked to Navy Pier, the Art Institute and Michigan Avenue. The train is just a block or two away. I never felt unsafe or worried, and it seemed to be a good area. I would stay here again.
Hotels Near Bottlefork In Chicago Review
There is a very popular restaurant for breakfast on the first floor of the hotel. The taste is good. You can watch the night view of Chicago on the top floor and take photos. It feels good to stay. I have stayed twice and walked to the surrounding attractions. Trump Hotel across the river
Let me start by saying that I was so looking forward to our stay at the Swissotel Chicago - for a very special occasion. And it was off to a great start when the bell man greeted us and escorted us to the front desk. But that was the end of our pleasant experience with Swissotel, even though I had called in advance to let them know this was a special occasion. We were greeted at the front desk by a cold and unwelcoming individual named Nicole Thompson. She was horribly rude and unfriendly. When I inquired about the bill because I was surprised it was more than anticipated from my online reservation, she seemed bothered with my questions and made me feel like I was being problematic, instead of just trying to get clarification. We left the front desk feeling very unwelcome and it left a bad taste in our mouths, but I wasn't going to let it damper the day and instead, looked forward to our pre-booked city view room... instead, Ms. Thompson put us in a room on the 4th floor directly in front of the elevator, which is neither a river view or a city view, but a concrete view of a roof of a building next door - and in the distance, a little sliver of the lake. Even thinking about it now upsets me so much. So we were left with a room without a city view, paying more than I expected, and didn't get the $10 per day credit for not using housekeeping service. I am so disappointed with my stay at the Swissotel and will never recommend it to anyone.
Stayed here for three nights with my son while he looked at colleges. The location is great - right next to a CTA stop, so even on a freezing night in January, it was easy to get places. The neighborhood has lots of affordable places to eat and shop. It is a residential neighborhood as opposed to a touristy one. Our room faced a brick wall, but that meant no street noise. I liked that the room was a real suite with a door between the bedroom and living room. Too often places say they are a "suite," but it really just means there is a couch. I could get up earlier than my son and not bother him. And I love any hotel that provides robes. So great to have one to wear after taking a shower! The breakfast is basic - just coffee, juice, boxed cereal, toast - but enough to keep you going while you wait for your teen son to wake up (are you sensing a theme here?) Lots of places within a block or two to get a heartier breakfast, though. There are few amenities here. No business center, no place to use a computer or printer, no exercise room, no restaurant. But it is a very good basic hotel. Because the rooms are suites, there seemed to be a lot of rooms with a lot of people in them. When we arrived, there were several rooms on our hallway with their doors open and people running between them drinking wine and yelling to each other. I think the front desk said it was a bridal party. On the next two nights, there was a huge group of people in the lobby playing games and drinking beer. There is no way anyone else could have just hung out in the lobby. The staff did an excellent job at getting people to keep the sound down and get out of other guests' way, but still, a lot of big groups, so maybe not the best hotel if you want a sedate atmosphere. I imagine it is a lot quieter if you stay mid-week. I was supposed to stay at this hotel again in March, but had to cancel at the last minute because my event was cancelled the night before due to the growing threat of the COVID-19 pandemic. Although I had passed the cancellation deadline, the staff happily gave me a refund. As soon as this lockdown ends, I hope to get to Chicago and stay in this hotel again!
If you are staying to visit someone in Rush hospital, this is the place to stay. There is a parking garage 50 feet from the hotel with overnight rates cheaper than the hospital hourly rates. I walked two blocks to the hospital through a good neighborhood with no issues. They also had a shuttle if the walk is too much or weather doesn't permit.
I recently visited The Blackstone for my second stay. Since I was alone this time, it allowed me the chance to focus on the quality of my stay in itself. During such a strange time as the COVID-19 pandemic in the US, and searching for a new home in the Chicago area, comfort and solace is hard won. I was able to have it, in part, because of the beauty of the hotel as my lodging. The rooms at the Blackstone are comfortable and even luxurious. If you can, try to stay in one of the rooms that allows a view of the Lake. The sunrise from the hotel is magical and truly relaxing. The amenities of the hotel are also fabulous. Restaurants, shops, Navy Pier, museums, Grant Park, Millennium Park, and other activities are all comfortably walkable from here. The Blackstone is artsy and gorgeously whispers its significant Chicago history to its guests. The staff in the hotel are its best secret, though. At each service point, the Blackstone staff was professional, helpful, friendly...even to the point of conversation about the local scene. In particular, I would like to thank Lilly for her help on the day I checked in, times I came to the desk for snacks and information, and even on the day I checked out. Her work is an asset to the hotel and its brand. Thank you for a great stay!
