TLDR it was a great experience for my first time in Chicago. I'd certainly stay here again on another trip. -- Wrigley Hostel was a great place to stay for my first trip to Chicago! It was clean, well-located, and the staff were very accommodating of late arrivals/early departures. There also was an ADORABLE dog for a few days of my stay. From O'Hare, it is easiest to get there via the Blue + Red lines. This took me a little over 1 hour late at night (~10pm), and the public transportation is very easy to navigate. The closest stop to the hostel is Addison (on the Red Line), about a 3-minute walk from the hostel's front door. I left through Midway, which took about 50 minutes to get to from the hostel via public transportation. It was pouring rain, though, so maybe it takes less time in normal weather. Location-wise, this worked for me. Everything that I needed to do was between Streeterville (e.g. downtown) and Evanston (e.g. the farthest uptown), putting the hostel at a nice "midpoint." Everywhere I needed to go was less than 30 minutes away by public transportation. The neighborhood where the hostel is located (Wrigleyville) also hosts a wide variety of quality restaurants and bars. You can find great food/nightlife within a 10 minute walk in all directions. Despite this, the hostel is located on a quiet street, so I didn't feel like the surroundings were chaotic and noisy. In terms of safety, I have stayed at a bunch of hostels all over the world, and this one wasn't much different. There are plenty of lockers/storage space that you can lock with your own lock, or purchase from the hostel for I believe $5. The hostel was very clean. The bedrooms, hallways, common areas, and bathrooms are very well-maintained each day. The kitchen is large and has everything you need to make meals on your own. There is also a large sitting area with plenty of tables/stools if you need to work like I did. Additionally, there is a computer room in the lower level and a large living room. I used each of these to do work during the day and I felt very comfortable/uninterrupted/free to speak out-loud into my microphone without feeling like I was annoying anyone around me.
I rate this hotel as a three star but know that it has very good parts and not so good. Let’s start with the pros: Clean, modern, great fitness center (this is atop an athletic club). Both breakfast and lunch menus and food were good, healthy options. Bar has a sufficient choice for everyone. It was wintertime so we didn’t use the outdoor pool, but I suspect it is fun. While not in a tourist area, it is in a good location if you need to stop by a store to pick up something you need or forgot. Staff were friendly without exception. Rooms have ample space and everything you need. The rate is reasonable too, even with the $25 daily resort fee. In room coffee was good too and there is a small refrigerator. The cons: not a place for rest or quiet. The beds are very firm, too firm really to feel comfortable. I found myself tossing around quite a bit. On our first night, we awoke at 3 am hearing the workout room below. Someone was really jamming and they no doubt had a good session. It was loud enough that I could recognize each set. I mentioned it to management the next morning and it didn’t happen again. The gym is closed until 5 am so it was odd. Other reviews note this and I know that we were not dreaming. You can hear a lot of noise between rooms as there isn’t much acoustic dampening, but our neighbors were quiet once they got settled. Our friends stayed on the 5th floor, one floor up from us. They didn’t have the noise problem. Maybe you want to ask for a room on floor 5.
Great quaint hotel with a very nice staff. Hotel in Boystown so if you're there for a night of partying then you're staying at the right place. Secure off-site parking but safe walking distance. The train. is right outside but it's a trade-off for being in the city. Definitely, a must stay if you're visiting the area. And the mini-bar with normal prices..not over inflated hotel prices...very refreshing..no pun intended
After much research we decided on the Best Western Hawthorne for our 3 day weekend in Chicago. Great boutique hotel in a great location of restaurants and shops. Easy safe walking. CVS and Mariano’s within a few blocks. Clean, comfortable, very friendly staff. Rhonda the front end manager was super friendly and helpful. Thank you Rhonda!! We were able to get early check in which was awesome and we so appreciated! Check out is 11am, and our flight was in the evening, and we were able to leave our luggage until ready to go to the airport. We will definitely stay here again when visiting Chicago!!
David made us feel so welcome as soon as we entered the property. He offered to carry our bags and help us get settled in our room. In all of my travels, That's the first time someones offered to do that. David really made us feel at home here. 10 0ut of 10 would definitley recommend.
I have spent 30+ years in hotel management. I was very pleased with this property. Very comfortable bed! Slept great even though my room was right over Lincoln Ave. I never heard traffic. The gentleman at the desk was very helpful. He heard me having difficulty opening my room door and he literally ran to help me. (I walk on crutches and this room was on 2nd floor. Nothing to be done about that as it was a last minute booking.) Room was great. Clean, no odors or missed trash. The only problem was the bedside lamp closest to the bathroom was not plugged in properly so it kept going on and off. The alarm clock radio was plugged into this lamp so it didn't keep time right. That's why only a 4/5 rating. I will definitely stay here again!

Love the Chicago themed rooms. This is an older hotel but has mostly been updated. The bathroom was very small with no room for a shelve or place to set anything. Minor inconvenience only. Pillows were a bit lumpy but not un usable. Bed was very comfy. Lobby was nice. Would have liked complimentary water and there was not a fridge in the room. Overall nice place.
Hotels Near Thai Room Restaurant In Chicago Review
As you can probably tell, this is not my first visit to this property, but definitely my first time since the pandemic. It's been almost three years since my last visit, and I have to say it DID NOT disappoint. Check-in was very smooth (no more than 5 minutes), staff very professional; I was already in my room enjoying the amenities within ten minutes. Room was spacious and clean. Everything in the room was perfect. Had breakfast in the executive lounge (12th floor); typical stuff. Nothing to brag about. Heard that they have afternoon tea/snacks and evening happy hours; did not get to enjoy, so won't comment. I have to say something about the location: just absolutely perfect if you want to be in the financial district (the Loop); right in the middle of the district. If you prefer more shopping, then maybe you should look at properties over in River North. For my purpose, it was perfect! Overall, nice 2-night stay at a very nice hotel. Will definitely come back again!
From the minute we walked through the door at 5:30 am, we were taken care of. The Sable at Navy Pier was a fantastic experience from the view in the room to the details that made it feel like you were on a classy cruise ship. The front desk and housekeeping were more than accommodating with our requests. David the front door man extraordinaire was delightful, helpful and fun to chat with. Our family had a great time and would 10/10 come back, highly recommend. P.S. To whomever designed the bathroom, I am I’m love and plan to incorporate your design elements into my bathroom remodel.
The location is very good - short way ro walk from the subway and in walking distance for most places in Chicago. The reception area is modern and very nice, and the staff were nice and efficient. The Wifi was functionning well. The room was very plain. There is almost nowhere to hang your clothes, and not enough places to hang your towells in the bathroom if they are to be dried - which is important as they don’t do your room if you stay less than four nights. There is no fridge and no coffemaker in the room (there is free coffee and tea in the reception in the morning). The aircondition was challenging - it either got too cold, or it was too hot. Obviously something was not right when 69 was freezing and 70 was steaming… The gym was well equipped, but the water dispenser was disconnected, even though the hotel on their web-site tell you there is water available.
Business trip, the hotel is 20 minutes walk away from the meeting place, very convenient, the hotel is fairly clean, hot water is provided. The hotel is close to Chinatown and there are supermarkets and small Chinese restaurants nearby. The consumption is not high. Close to the subway station, a few minutes. The only drawback is that it looks like the countryside, a few kilometers from the city center, but it's a thousand miles apart.
Our girls’ theatre weekend stay at the Cambria was great! I had reserved two rooms, one for one night, and one for two nights. Julie at the front desk was VERY helpful and understanding when I showed up first, and didn’t even know the last name of the folks in the other room, as they were a friend of my adult daughter and her mom. Julie arranged to hold my bag until they arrived, and then got us into their room well before normal check-in time, so we could ditch the luggage and find some lunch. Julie came through again with a recommendation to Petterinos, which was less than a block away and very good. This hotel is all about location, being in the same building as the Nederlander Theatre, so we had to walk only about 30 feet from door to door for our first evening’s show. The Sunday matinee show we attended was a couple of blocks away at the CIBC theatre. Off-site parking was just around the corner, but worked well, and at $38 was about the going rate (nowhere near the $70+/night the Marriott had quoted). The rooms were nice, and clean. We did have to ask for extra towels, as they didn’t have enough for a 2-night stay (no housekeeping), but a quick stop at the front desk fixed that. We loved the game room, and killed some time before our matinee show playing cards there. The purpose of this review is mostly to brag on Julie, who was one of the nicest front-desk staff I’ve ever run across. The Choice Hotels website only lets you review if they invite you, and I did not receive an invitation.), so I'm writing it here. Yes, it was almost $200/night with taxes, but it was in a great location in downtown Chicago, where that price isn’t uncommon. When one factors in the price of parking, the rate is much better than similar hotels.
This is my fourth stay at this hotel and I have always found the employees to be kind and helpful and everything working without a hitch. However, this time around my room had a problem with the thermostat and heating, and although it's March, the last two days have been very chilly, and the heater was emitting cool air most of the time, rather than warm air, even when I turned the thermostat up to a high temperature. This was very bothersome to me (I didn't want to change rooms since otherwise my room was perfect), so I talked to the front desk about this, and Mirsad, the assistant engineer of the hotel, was in my room ASAP and checked the thermostat, the unit itself, left to get a part, showed immense concern for my well-being (I was cold, especially at night), and took care of the problem. I was impressed by this employee's professionalism and the effort he made to ensure the heating/cooling unit and thermostat were working well. I have yet another three days here at the hotel, and my room is now warm and comfy. Excellent customer service, which is what it's all about.
The hotel is very clean and tidy. The biggest feature of the room is the floor-to-ceiling windows. The scenery outside the window is very clear. Although there is no bustling Michigan Avenue, it is still good! There is a bar on the 18th floor of the hotel, not big. The hotel has a restaurant on the left side of the hotel entrance, named Somerset, in the room can also book this restaurant in the room dinning, about twenty or thirty minutes to deliver the meal to the room. I really like the bathroom's minimalist wash suit, which is white tea, especially fragrant and comfortable. Shopping, dining and entertainment are nearby. Not far from there are Chinese restaurants, such as Imperial Lamian, Old Sichuan, MingHin Cuisine, Shanghai Terrance, which are just a few minutes from Uber. Royal chef and old Sichuan are very popular! It is also 10 minutes from the hotel to the famous scenic spot Michigan Avenue, which is also close to Navy Pier and Millennium Park. The fly in the ointment is that the sound insulation in the hotel is not good, the guests from the opposite side of the room can hear the opening of the door, but the overall is good!
The lobby is beautiful and fun. This is where the 4 star ratings end. Check IN: I ask for what upgrades were available. I always upgrade at the hotel when i book with priceline. At first she said they were sold out for the weekend nothing was available .I had to reiterate, I am willing to pay I don't want to be stuck in a closet somewhere. She insisted again they were sold out but then said you can upgrade to lake view for $50 a night. So we took it. Worth it....the view is beautiful. Room: The room is a motel 6 covered in Ikea furniture and wall paper. Signs of wear and tear everywhere as if the rooms aren't maintained at all. Sloppy caulking, sloppy repainting. Scuff and bangs on all furniture. And the bed gets a 1 star. The sheets actually felt like paper I could barely sleep. Bathroom: Fixtures in the bathroom seemed better up to par however the toilet paper was literally see through. Here comes the UGLY....They are having intermittent issues with their plumbing so when we checked in the water was coming out BROWN! I had to call downstairs and they told me to let the water run for a few minutes to clear the pipes. I expect this to be immediately communicated at check-in. It cleared up by the night but talk about shock. Service: Service to the room was quick. Internet and water bottles free when you are Marriot members. Lobby Bar: Vegas prices for their drinks. Almost double the cost for what I paid at the Hyatt during the week.
we had great success staying at the Silversmith Hotel on Wabash street in downtown Chicago. Everyone was extremely friendly, but more importantly, very helpful. We asked a lot of questions about where to go and what to see and the people at the Silversmith took plenty of time telling us about different things to do. We had our own schedule, but we changed some of it based on what we were told. some of the people that were extremely helpful were Beverly, Kinisha, Enrique in the Lobby area and Olta and Mary Trinea in the Hotel Restaurant
I have been visiting the Freehand Chicago for several years & have always loved the hotel for many reasons. Decent pricing, great atmosphere, fab bar & cafe, excellent location - the list goes on & on. However, I will say that after my most recent stay I was sad to realize that this hotel just isn't what it used to be. The seating area reeked of cigarettes, to be brief - our room was showing a lot of wear (scuffed walls, broken curtain, dusty, etc.), Cafe Integral was closed which was not mentioned at the time of booking our stay. It was just a bit of a disappointment to see that they have let the place go.
The hotel is located in China Town, opened in 2021, very new. I booked a standard king size bed room with a small sofa bed, including three breakfasts. The car is parked in the Chinatown parking lot next to it, 16 US dollars for 24 hours. We stayed for one night, and overall it was very good, the hotel is very new, and there is a variety of food and hot pot downstairs. The attraction "You're Beautiful" is also downstairs. I will choose this hotel next time I come to Chicago.
I had booked a last minute trip to Chicago's Virgin Hotel to spend some time with my daughters. From the first minute we walked in the service was impeccable. This continued throughout our stay everytime we walked in or out of the hotel (many times). The location was perfect to shops, restaurants, Riverwalk, beautiful architecture, and many other visual attractions.
The only downfall to our visit was it was Covid season and many restrictions to places we could go to watch the football game and/or eat as the restaurants were all closed in the hotel. That was a safety issue for the guests so it was appreciated they weren't open. The one thing I'd recommend is for them to have a list of what was open nearby and what was offered (dine-in, delivery, take out, etc.). We were able to find places on our own, but it would have saved us the time from searching/calling around.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel!!
During the epidemic, breakfast was filled with bread, fruit and coffee in kraft paper bags, but check in and check out were quite fast. The parking lot is very small. It is not easy to see $50 a night at night. The overall environment of the hotel is very good, the facilities are very new, the decoration is also very good, there is a swimming pool and a gym, the price is good, it is recommended!
Nice staff, undesirable hotel. We had a three night stay planned. Just to remind folks, even as a Diamond member there is almost zero perks other than a bag with two bottles of water and popcorn. Parking is $50 per day plus tax. Walls are thin and Everything comes through the vents. We were next to a corner room and we heard all conversations even from midnight to 5am. Let’s also be clear that the smell of ********* definitely permeates grossly through the vents. We mentioned it to the manager and she quickly found us another room. Note that we were on a non smoking floor. Moved us one floor down to an empty room. Hmmm, upon entering there was someone sleeping on the pullout couch. Yep, again went to the front desk with all of our things to get yet another room. Through all of this , the manager was so kind and apologetic. She did take $50 off of our bill. Still could hear voices through the vents, and ********* smell a few doors down as we went to the elevators. Highly disappointing to me that they do not take proper action on this. Staff is very friendly. Breakfast is good as is the evening reception. Layout is good too, but oddly enough difficult to navigate the parking garage to hotel. Even with all of this, I will never return to this location as the rooms are not worth the grief. Great employees cannot make up for the clientele that abuse this hotel.
The location is really the only reason to stay here. Location is fabulous, and near many options for dining and shopping. Do not pay extra for a view - because there is no view. Our king size room had just enough room to walk around the bed….and not much more. The bathroom was perhaps two feet from the bed - no joke. The bathroom and shower were nice given the small room. The breakfast was fine. There was supposed to be happy hour in the lobby on Friday and Saturday, but they cancelled it for some reason. I never did hear why…. They also only clean the room upon request. We had an extremely helpful staff member upon arrival, so two thumbs up to him. I probably wouldn’t stay at this particular hotel again….
Stayed here for a few nights for a fun trip to Chicago.Room was great and beds were unreasonably comfy. After a long day of walking you don’t understand how good it felt to lay in one of those beds. Breakfast was a typical hotel breakfast. I liked it. Staff was friendly and helpful, especially when my dad left his phone in the lobby bathroom and left. We were about to hop on the train before he realized, rushed back and the kind man at the front handed us my dad’s phone. Also has a great location, right off mag mile, and close to the train. Would recommend to anyone
Upon arrival, the front desk attendants were super helpful about parking, the facility, breakfast, and even helped up to not leave one of our bags while unloading. Both of our suites were super clean and comfy, with room to prepare snacks, a small cupboard, wet bar, study table, couch with a chaise, multi-task coffee table, TV on the medium-size dresser, dividing wall, comfortable king-size bed. Breakfast was hot--scrambled eggs, sausage, oatmeal with toppings, big fresh English muffins, bagels, cereal, etc. With covid protocol, we took it up to our room to eat. Also because of covid, the fitness center and pool were closed. You could hear the planes overhead from O'Hare (muffled) and the south side of the property overlooks the expressway. Not deal-breakers for us.
The hotel matched all the criteria I was looking for and it was available for a reasonable price so I booked it. After I booked it, I called to confirm the details of the shuttle and the service I received was not great; I thought it was a one-off but actually that was the type of service I was going to receive throughout my stay. My family arrived before me and even though we had called to confirm the airport pickup and shuttle times, we were told 'just call when you arrive and the shuttle will be there'. Every time we asked we got a different response - one person said the shuttle ran on a schedule and another said that it was upon request. We tried taking the shuttle three times - once from the airport, once to the airport, and once again to the airport and each time it was EXTREMELY delayed and/or it was a guesstimate as to when it would actually go. After that, we stopped using the shuttle at all. The hotel is located about 10 minutes away from the airport and is located across the highway from the Rosemount train station. The hotel looks like it was built in the 1950's with a high hotel and a huge parking lot. You have to cross the huge parking lot and walk across the highway on a pedestrian bridge to access the train - its not bad during the day but can be a little sketchy at night. There are plenty of restaurants and grocery stores within walking distance and there are lots of delivery options available as well (we did a delivery option and when it was delivered to the hotel, they were told to leave it on the table in the lobby. We went down to pick it up and no one confirmed to ensure it was our order so you can pick up any order you want). The lobby was designed in a circular fashion with the check-in desks to the left, the bar and restaurant straight ahead, the elevators to the room on the right, and the concierge desk also on the right. We checked-in and were not given any information and in fact the attendant could not have cared less (even though there was no one behind us). We received our key and proceeded to our room. Even though the area for the hotel was large and the hotel building looked large, the rooms were smaller than I expected. As you entered, there was a bathroom on the right and a closet on the left side. The bathroom was standard and contained a sink, a toilet and a bathtub - the only negative about the hotel was the minimal space. The closet was also a standard hotel closet and contained shelves, a place to hang clothes, an iron and ironing board, as well as a safe. Further into the room, on the right side were the 2 double beds with a nightstand in the middle. The beds were decent and provided a good nights sleep - again the space between the beds were tighter than anticipated. In front of the beds was a chest with a drawers on the bottom and a TV on top. Next to that was a desk on wheels so you can move the desk around the room. Along the wall were windows which were a nice addition as it
Pros: Staff - The staff was very friendly and generally helpful, albeit with what may be purposely deceitful explanations of platinum benefits and the resort fee benefits. Location - If you need to be in south loop or near Michigan Ave, this is well located. Cons: Rooms - The rooms are tiny and not at all functional for business. The bathrooms are smaller than what is found in budget European hotels. Toiletries - The hotel was missing standard toiletries. I first checked into a room that had zero shampoo. The next room had only shampoo and hand soap. For a hotel of this class, this is very weak. In room coffee - I only received one caffeinated coffee pack in my room over 5 nights. I only was replenished with decaf coffee packs/pods. Often I wasn't getting to my room until after midnight and having to leave early in the morning, so I was only able to rectify this issue one day. In room toilet paper - It was awful industrial-class toilet paper. In my experience Marriott properties typically use the hotel series of Charmin or Cotonnelle, but this was the type you'd find in a public bathroom. It was part of a clear theme that the hotel is generally skimping on soft products. No iron/laundry bag - Not that big of a deal, but the room has no iron/ironing board and there was no laundry bag. *** In sum, most of the issues are fixable but quite annoying when added up. The general sense of this place is that they cut corners everywhere they can. It was clear it was a lower-class hotel in its previous life and that they upgraded some design features but nothing else. It is not up to par with standard Marriott properties. I have stayed in many other Chicago hotels, and I can affirmatively say there are much better properties to stay at (both Marriott and non-Marriott) for around the same price.
There is a park next to the hotel, my room is on the side, and I can see a bit of Lake Michigan. The hotel is old, but the brush is completely white, and it is still very warm. The bathrooms are all new. There is a subway track next to it, with a slight sound, but I think it is much better than the one that depends on the track. There are several convenience stores and restaurants around. You can walk to the river, Millennium Park and the Art Museum, but the guide said that it is best not to come out after 8pm. There are also several theaters next to it. Lived two days before the Chicago Marathon and it was so expensive.
We stayed here after we decided to stay in Chicago an extra night. The location is great. Parking was near for $28. The hotel is outdated but I can’t complain that much since it was only $87. There is not a fridge or microwave in the room. It wasn’t bad for a last minute stay. 7/10
Juan checked us in early after we explained we had to be at a very important family party in the early afternoon. We were very fortunate there was a room available for us. He was very helpful and the room we had was on the first floor for two nights. I agree that the place needs some updating and TLC, but the people that work there couldn't be nicer! That being said, one big suggestion from two senior citizens: put some non slip grips in the tubs because they are quite slippery and we had to be careful not to fall while taking a shower! Parking is nearby and not at all as expensive as the downtown hotels. There is a parking garage down the side alley that is $25/day and also another garage at Walmart across street. There is a nice bench out in front of the hotel where you can wait for an Uber, or just people watch. We have stayed at the Willows several times due to our daughter living nearby in Lakeview. Also, someone said they only got one set of towels and they were small. We thought the opposite. There were a few sets of towels, they were quite large and smelled good!
Spending in Chicago in February 2020,
[Line] The hotel is located in the center of the city center, in the prime location of S Michigan ave, directly facing Grant Park and directly facing Lake Michigan, the transportation is extremely convenient. Harrison Station (Red Line) subway is nearby.
Exit the hotel's main entrance, turn left (go north) (walk or take the subway), cross the river, it is a magnificent mile Magnificent Mile
[Living] Hilton Chicago is a long-established, luxurious and individual hotel. Once you enter the revolving door and walk left, you can see the bronze statue of the hotel group founder and the founding philosophy. The Lobby, the second floor, and the eighth floor are all public spaces.
I live in a lake view room. The view is fine and exquisite. The interior layout of the room is square. The sound insulation between the room and the next room is barely good. Anyway, everyone knows that you should not laugh and shout at the hotel.
[Eat] Exit the hotel's main entrance, turn right (go south) two blocks, and have Yolk brunch
From 6:00 to 15:00, the crowds of people lining up to eat are heard.
Regarding eating, I don't need to repeat it here. Everyone is a travel expert.
[Education] Various museums, symphony concert halls, and libraries are all nearby. Even if your stay is short, at least go out the door and turn left (go north), buy a ticket and enter the Art Institute of Chicago once
[Le] The hotel is located in the Loop area of the city center. You can walk around the Chicago Futures Exchange building and take photos.
Just a few steps to Willis Tower, you can go up to the 103rd floor and stand at Sky Deck to feel the glass window protruding from the wall of the building. The foot is completely transparent. (Tempered glass, steel frame support).
Chicago is a famous wind city, and the power of high winds can be felt more at high altitude.
To sum it up, choose Hilton Chicago and you won't regret it or be bored.
We are Hyatt Explorist members but did not feel any difference being here. There wasn't the personal touch I have experienced at other Hyatts. We were told we would receive a text when our room was ready but thsi never happened. Only found out when I went to ask the check in desk if our room was ready. T.V. kept spinning and we got it fixed once but then it did the same thing again. Someone on our hallway was smoking **** so we smelled that for a few nights in a row. Sound quality was not the greatest. We could hear people next door and in the hallway pretty clearly. You have to take two sets of elevators to get to your room and to get to the ground floor. Not very convenient. The bar and restaurant was nice. Requests for extra towels and water were readily met. Conveniently located a block from Michigan Ave.
Our first time in Chicago - we only booked this place because it is within walking distance of City Winery where we were scheduled to see a show. (NRBQ!) We didn't even realize that the hotel is within walking distance of the United Center too. Old building has lots of charm, nice original art, and the staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. (That alone made it a good place to stay.) Room was normal amount of square footage, though why it had a full sized refrigerator in it is beyond me. No onsite restaurant or bar but we found a good sports pub around the corner on Ogden, as well as an authentic norteño Mexican restaurant around the other corner on Ashland. We were on a road trip and so needed parking; hotel has an adjacent lot @ $25 day with full in & out privileges so we jumped on that.
I stayed at this hotel over the weekend and it was fine for a night but I don’t think I would have wanted to stay longer. Booked mainly because I was hoping to use the rooftop pool but it wasn’t open yet (which is fine it’s still a bit early). I just found that it was one or two blocks too far from the action and didn’t entirely feel comfortable walking in the immediate neighbourhood at night solo because it was very quiet. I think this is a good hotel if you’re office is in this part of the loop but if I was visiting again for a weekend I would chose a different location. Room was fine. Pillows were okay but a little lumpy. I liked the bathroom. Shower was spacious and really nice and the bathroom was bright enough to do make up. Found that there weren’t enough elevators for the amount of people in the hotel and they weren’t very fast. The hotel was really loud and I think it’s because the hall ways have no carpet or padding so you can hear doors slamming and people talking all the time. Overall it’s fine for a room in the loop but I think there are better options in the area.
I was here 4 nights for a conference. I would not recommend having a conference here as the sales and event planning side of the business was about the worst we've ever encountered as an organization. For the lodging part, my room was fine. Rather small - two double beds with a bench-type chair and a desk. There were drawers, open shelves, and a closet. One oddity - the iron was mounted in the center of the back wall of the closet which made it stick out and interfere with hanging clothes. Very weird design - irons belong on the side or a shelf on top, not sticking out where you want your ironed clothes to hang freely. The bathroom was likewise a tight squeeze but there was a countertop to put toiletries. The drain plug in the sink didn't work. The shower had both a handheld and regular head but both leaked no matter who I tried to turn the lever switching between the two. After my first shower the floor was a huge puddle despite making sure the curtain was in place, so I angled the showerhead more toward the wall to try to prevent the leak. There was only one bar of soap that I had to move back and forth between the sink and shower, but on the 3rd day the housekeeper left me a new bar. The shampoo and conditioner in little bottles were fine. The fitness room was huge, just like a commercial gym. You can do any kind of workout - highly recommended. If you opt for the club lounge, Anita is a great host and the various buffet breakfast items were really good. Not open on weekends, though. The option is a restaurant also on the second floor and a cafe with lots of cold options in the lobby. Speaking of the lobby, it was usually crowded and not quite enough bartenders to keep everyone served. Be prepared for sticker shock - a simple domestic draft costs $12 before tax and tip. The doormen and bell staff were helpful and I felt safe walking around day or night. Lots of pot smoking on the sidewalks for some reason but the various stores and restaurants were nice and clean.
Well, what was supposed to be a nice weekend in the city with my parents from overseas, turned into an absolute nightmare thanks to this hotel! After an 8 hour flight, my family and I were very tired. We checked into our rooms, when my husband and I walked into our room, the chemical smell made my eyes burn, it smelled as if someone had just doused the place in bleach. I immediately open the window. We leave the room to let it air out. After a while, my husband and I returned to our room to sleep. I called the lobby asking for an extra pillow (none available in the rooms), after 30 minutes, an extra pillow never came. I called again. The woman who answered the phone said she never received a request for an extra pillow but said she would get me one immediately. Finally, after 35 minutes from the first time I called, my extra pillow came, now we can finally go to sleep (I think). It is now 10:00 pm. We lay down to sleep and suddenly hear our walls begin to shake from our next door neighbor's music that is BLASTING. We decided to let it go for a while and see if they would turn it down themselves without us having to call security. A little after 10:30, our room starts smelling of a strong ********* smoke smell. By 10:45, the smoke was so bad my eyes were red and watering, we had to open the window (and leave it open) to even get a little relief. At this point we decide it is time to call security. The music is blasting and our room reeks of ********* smoke. We call the front desk and they say they will send security right up. Security comes up (we can hear every word as the walls are paper thin). Security says to our neighbors that they got a noise complaint and tells them "you'd be toast if the fire alarm goes off in here, so you better go outside to do that". Security knew they were smoking **** and blasting music, instead of kicking them out (or moving them), she encouraged them to go outside. Finally at 11:30, we hear the door slam and it goes quiet, finally we are able to fall asleep. To our dismay, at 12:30 am, our walls started shaking (again) from the bass of our neighbor's music. We turn on the light and call security again. Again, we hear every word that was said. The security guard stated she got a noise complaint from the room next door (pointing towards our room). Our neighbor says she is a big speaker person and brought her $400 speaker with her to enjoy some music. The security guard told her that she should just listen to music on her phone and not use the speaker. The security guard leaves, we hope we can finally go to sleep after this. Sadly, our neighbor starts playing music on her phone with the volume turned all the way up. Not only that, she is hollering at whoever is in the room with her. By this point we realize it would be IMPOSSIBLE to sleep in our room. By now, it is almost 1:00 am, we are exhausted and frustrated. My husband and I decide it is best to pack our bags and make the front desk switch our room (though they s
At the beginning, there was a problem with collecting money. Ctrip charged the room rate. The hotel charged it again. After communicating with Ctrip, it was resolved in a few days. The hotel returned the room rate. Ctrip actively helped solve the problem. The only bad thing was the hotel reservation. The taxi is not metered, it feels a bit pitted. Use Uber. Don't let the hotel book a car.
