Hotels Near Soupbox In Chicago
0.1km from SoupboxI stayed in March right before all of the lockdowns The Park Hyatt Chicago is in a very central area that is close to most of what you want to see in downtown Chicago. There's a Giordano's a block away - which was delicious. The staff at the hotel is friendly and check-in was fast and efficient. One bonus is that there is a resident dog at the hotel - Parker! She was absolutely adorable and it was fun watching her sleep on her luxurious doggy bed. I checked in to the hotel on the mobile app, which I have learned is not the best idea as I always seem to get cheated out of a room upgrade as an Explorist. I got the worst view in the hotel it seemed but it was fine because I really enjoyed spending time in the lobby sipping tea and looking out the window or walking to the Chicago landmarks. The hotel restaurant was the perfect spot for lunch and the food was quite tasty. The indoor pool was a big bonus and I loved the atmosphere of the indoor pool. Overall, a great experience at the Park Hyatt Chicago. I would definitely return!
0.14km from SoupboxWe stayed in the Executive Suite and it was spectacular. The bathroom tub (that they don't show in the pictures but should! ) has a window overlooking the city. The rooms are carpeted and so comfortable. The beds are very firm which I didn't love but I know that appeals to some people. I really loved this location b/c you're not in the super busy financial district and there are some great shops all within walking distance. We also dined at the Shanhai Terrace and dinner was great - recommend the duck and happy rice. We are from Chicago but wanted to spend a weekend in the city, we will definitely be back! They were also very nice about accommodating us for the pool.

0.21km from SoupboxStayed here 10/9 -11. Very polite front desk staff explained how things run during covid. I was recognized as an Accor member and am ex platinum. We were given a 24th floor king room with a nice view of the Hancock building. Room was very clean with an exceptionally comfortable king bed. Separate glass enclosed shower and a nice bathroom with shampoo, soap bottles etc. One robe and two towels were provided with no additional housekeeping for the two night stay. Extra towels were brought up on request. In room Keurig coffee maker was appreciated. The is a nice outdoor seating casual restaurant less than a block away that is open 7 days a week. Location is convienet to walk to most popular dining, shopping etc. We would definitely stay at this location again.
0.25km from SoupboxThis downtown Chicago apartment complex is three blocks from the Magnificent Mile and offers outdoor lounges, beautiful city views, and an on-site Whole Foods.
0.26km from SoupboxSo this review is going to very direct. Here are the pros and cons of staying here. Pros: Location. It’s right off of Michigan Avenue. you’re only a five minute walk from....everything. Truly this location can’t be beat. Price. This is a very reasonably priced hotel for its location, but be aware, you get what you pay for. The Beds. The bed was actually really really comfortable, as were the pillows. I slept very very well. Cable. They have a full cable option with all the basic channels as well as the ability to sign in with your own HBO go or Netflix. Heat. I know some previous reviews had issues with the AC. It was in the 30s during our stay and our heat worked wonderfully and our room was very warm. Restaurant/bar. They have an adjoining restaurant and bar that was nice, albeit overpriced. Luggage hold. If you are unable to check in early, they will hold your luggage for you so you can go hit the town. Cons Mold in the bathroom. Like, all through the grout line. I didn’t feel like the shower was dirty but obvious visible mold should not be happening and it does make you wonder how clean the shower you are bathing in is. Outdated. I’m not talking so much the decoration, as I am just about amenities you expect in 2020. We had no plugs near our beds to charge our phones and have them by us at night. The only plug we were able to use was a power strip underneath the desk. It seems common place to have at least lamps with a USB port built in or a clock radio, but they didn’t have any of that. While it’s a minor inconvenience, it would go a long way to help in this digital age. Overall this was very much a 3/5. I’m not sure I’d be opposed to staying here again but I’d probably look for alternative options first.

0.27km from SoupboxThe service at this hotel is outstanding. Probably the fastest check-in process we have ever experienced. Room service staff were amazing as were everyone else we encountered. Obviously, great location as well. Now for everything else. The hotel is somewhat dated. Construction seems mediocre at best, as things were falling apart in the room and some of the components seemed very cheap. We had a corner suite and had two major problems with it. First, expect your room to be very LOUD if you are on Michigan Ave. The windows did nothing to temper the noise. Second, the "living room" area is too small if you are using the pull out bed. If you are on the side of the bed opposite the door, you will either have to climb over the bed or walk through the bedroom and then the bathroom to get to the other side of the pull out. This became very annoying very quickly. All in all, we had a great rate and the service was fantastic--call it four stars averaged out. That said, there are better options in the city.
0.29km from SoupboxWe recently stayed at the wonderful Talbott Hotel and though it is not the same missing Perry and all the employees who always went above and beyond for us, the minimum staff there were very accomodating, friendly and whatever we needed was available in a short time. (Even a microwave delivered to the room!) The location also can not be beat as it is close to wonderful restaurants and shopping in the Gold Coast. I much prefer this location to the busy streets south by the river. They did a great job maintaining distance and followed all covid precautions. Thank you and we can not wait to return and see you ALL again soon!
0.3km from SoupboxSo this review is way late and I will update with new pictures when I go in a few weeks but this is by far one of the best hotel stays I've had in my travels. The hotel is beautiful (although it has gone through an extensive renovation. New pics coming in my update). I stayed in a cityview suite for my birthday and the staff and service were exceptional. The location is close to the northern part of the Mag mile with easy access to all of the high end shops and restaurants in the area. I don't usually stay at the same hotel twice but it spoiled me so! Can't wait for my stay in a couple of weeks
0.32km from SoupboxWe loved it here! My husband and I originally stayed at the Cambria Hotel Loop, the experience wasn’t as great as it was here in Magnificent Mile. The room here is fantastic, the size was of the room was huge, organized, clean, the view is beautiful, overall the hotel is great, made us have a easy experience of seeing Chicago. Our stay was great because of one person here most. We need more people like Ms. Elizabeth Massey, she works as a receptionist here, she is so sweet, friendly and extremely nice, she is the one that made sure we had the best time, and was comfortable, she helped us with everything, very hard worker. Having good staff like her that goes above and beyond is the reason that makes this hotel special compared to other hotels. We will definitely return to specially this Cambria location in our next visit to Chicago. Definitely worth it. Thank you so much Ms. Massey! -Jafar and Suhana Uddin

0.32km from Soupbox Disappointing I love the staff, the valet and hotel receptionists and hip Management especially Baba and TJ along with Veslie. Since I had strokes, I use a wheelchair, if I wasn't kinda still young and in shape I would not been able to leave the hotel for 4 days. I picked and called Eurostars because they had a balcony king bed room with supposedly 24 room service. Turned out the hotel had 2 very difficult and heavy front doors and an additional front door half blocked by a valet block and the other blocked by wind. I had a very angled small balcony that i couldn't roll my wheelchair out on to enjoy. They had an computer pad in my room that allowed me to request amenities, hotel services, internet and ròom service from my room. The first morning I used it to order room service and after an hour of waiting I called. Whe it finally did show up in a paper bag and plastic container, $5 service charge not including gratuity, $30, it was awful and sad. 3 items in my omelet and the cheese did not make it. I was very disappointed. Even though the hotel shares its space with 2 restaurants they dont have a facility of their own and no 24 hour room service. I was freely updated to their version of a bigger ADA room with a king bed. I put in a request through the room pad to housekeeping for a shower chair and never received the chair because they don't have those. I never received a response on the room pad. Delivery of a large box, had to hunt it down and I got the rest of my meals across the street! Half the price and beautiful food at Bijan's! Thank YOU Marilyn!!😇
0.33km from SoupboxWas scheduled to stay here for a 3 night stay but checked out after the first night. Although the property is very well located within the Chicago area and close walking distance to all sorts of amenities, the condition of the rooms is very disappointing. Upon checking in, I was greeted by our front desk agent, Lisa was very nice and hospitable. Upon entering my room, I noticed that all of the common area surfaces had sticky stuff on them. I wiped the surfaces down and began to unpack but the adjoining rooms were all related and yelling in the hallway so i requested to change rooms. Upon entering my new room, I was happy to see it was larger and very spacious, but was disappointed to see the condition of the room. Again, counters/desk/night stand was sticky. The phone was missing buttons. The bathroom was full of hair in the tub and on the floor. Sitting on the toilet I noticed a heavy buildup of dust on the pipes. The shower head was falling apart and the shower curtain is too short to stay in the tub so water leaks on the floor. The comfort of the bed was very similar to an experience sleeping on the floor. As a result I checked out early and so did a coworker who experienced similar issues. Upon checking out I attempted to explain the room condition to the front desk clerk, but he just said “ok, have a good day”... There are plenty of good choices in the area, avoid this one.
0.34km from SoupboxI came to this hotel in October 2020 when I was having a surgery done at Northwestern Hospital. We were greeted right away by Lynette who was working at the front desk. She was very helpful and provided us with a lot of information about our stay, where to go, and just overall, made me feel comfortable and relaxed as I prepared for my surgery the next day. She told us to let her know if we needed anything during our stay and I truly believe that. She was amazing! Everyone on their staff was. The day after my surgery, it was time for us to leave and Lynette was down in the lobby again. She made sure to check on me and wished us a safe drive home. Would definitely recommend this hospital to anyone. It was a great and comfortable stay.
Hotels Near Soupbox 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.
The 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.
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!
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.
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!
