The room was very clean. The hotel had many amenities and provided a comfortable home away from home. I was approached by beggars both in front of the hotel (on the sidewalk) and in the hotel lobby. It would have been nice for security to be a bit tighter.
Decor, ambiance, comfy bed and linens, great shower, great mirror in the bathroom, we were pleasantly suprised to see that we were able to open the windows in the room, we like fresh air. The wall paper was peeling in the bathroom.
Efficient and clean
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.
Walk into the grand lobby and you feel like you're part of Chicago history. The rooms are a little small.
We visited Chicago to see Hamilton. The hotel is in a great location, within walking distance to restaurants and attractions, very close to the Private Bank Theater where Hamilton is playing. We arrived slightly early and worried about getting into our room, but the staff were able to accommodate us. All the staff we encountered were extremely friendly. The self-park was included in our stay and very convenient. We had a king bed room which was very nice and clean. Overall very pleased!
We arrived early and tried to check in.Were advised room not ready, but in a hour and we were being upgraded. Two hours later that room was gone, but we could wait for the upgraded room or take our confirmed room (smaller,etc) then.Decided to wait on 23rd floor where the upgraded room was located--very pleasant but took another 40 minutes. It was god to wait and worth it but,.........................., had two double beds. would have liked queen beds as we were three ladies, two of whom are larger.... Everything else was GREAT
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.
The lobby is amazing.
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.
Very small rooms and poor room service.
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
Horrible staff dirty
Room was clean. Maid service provided excellent work. Stayed at the hotel during a warm spell in April. Room was hot and uncomfortable. No individual thermostats. Cannot get a straight answer whether or not there was air conditioning. The website miss lead about barbering availability on the premises and had trouble with dry cleaning a suit.
Beds are comfortable and the staff is very friendly. Onsite parking is cheaper than others in downtown Chicago. Wifi could be better. The rooms are older in style and decor, but that is to be expected in a 100+ year old hotel.
Nothing The room was dirty and so were my bath towels, also not to mention the hallway smelled really bad. Most importantly the staff were very rude when I informed them of my dirty room.
Nothing Bad heater and the place looks old
The rooms were kind of updated. But the location was superb, walking distance from everything. I believe they should spend more on updating the hotel. It carries such great Old Chicago character, but the painting over decades of old cracked paint, wall paper peeling off the walls and stale odor of the lobby like grandmas old furniture... doesn't do the history of ths hotel justice.
Breakfast, place eas crowded and staff had nothing to do
We loved the charm of this classic beauty. High ceilings and all. Well worth the extra money for lake view!
Great hotel in a a great location at a great a price. The bathroom had some plumbing issues and smelled of sewer the whole stay.
Location A/C barely worked and the vent was rusted Towels and sheets had blood stains Trash under the bed
Big bed and the museum campus. Screaming neighbors, for hours.
Loved the high ceilings and architecture!
This hotel has a really nice "members only" feel to it like a stodgy old man city club with out the stodginess. it is beautifully decorated and the rooms were not your usual doer and feel. There are so many different venues to choose from that we could have never led the hotel. The drinks and food are a bit pricey, but it fits. The only thing I would change about the room is that we wished there was an in room coffee maker. With all of the other stuff they put in the room to charge you for, a coffee make would have been nice. Also, we had to order ice from guest services as there are no ice machines on the floor.
Great location, and beautiful view from the rooftop bar. Renovations in the building are really wonderful, and we enjoyed having coffee in the morning in the lobby area. Unfortunately, the hotel can't decide if it's catering to its guests, or the long line of people waiting to get up to the rooftop. Elevators were extremely slow, and we were told not to take the stairs, even though there was no sign saying staff only. Additionally, the design of the room trumps function. I wish there was a place to hang my towels. And it was dark--I had to move my suitcase underneath the light to find my clothes. And yes, the shower leaked everywhere and was a little cold. But it all looked nice.
Public spaces, vibe, decor, the radio in room. The inability to do a normal load of laundry -- either by myself or by the pound -- they only offered laundry with rates like $5 per pair of underwear was a major hassle/shockingly overpriced. Rooms are pretty small and most face an old factory-type building, but that's no big deal.
Very unique hotel with cool public spaces and furnishings. Friendly, helpful staff. across the street from the cloud sculpture at millennium park. Highly recommend!
Loved the location the staff and the bed Hated not having a tub , shower only . The room view was a metal structure and a concrete wall . The room was very small.
Service is some of the best in the industry. Placing hotels like W, and other botuques, even larger Four Season and that ilk, into the realm of service as imperious paridy. Returning in April with colleagues and clients from around the world for business meetings, fun, and knowledge that great service and an outstanding stay awaits.
Beds very comfortable. Location was perfect. Lighting in bathroom not good at all. Height of tub could be a problem for kids and short adults.
The location was excellent. Toilet ran all night, mold in the shower, rooms exceptionally small, no convenient place for computer.
Loved the atmosphere, very pretty, very nice hotel. Had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend it.
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.
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.
Clean comfortable room, nice staff. Great location While the bar/lounge was nice, the lack of Gym and pool were something I missed.
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!
Rooms are comfortable and well maintained Convenient location across from the Goddess and the Baker and of course a short distance from the Bean (Millenium park) Very friendly helpful staff
The location was nice. Boring hotel, average style rooms and amenities for the price range hotel
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.
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.
I liked that it was close to everything we wanted! The wifi was slow! They had no ice machines in the hallways so we had to call every time for the front desk to being some to us. When entering the hotel it had a clean but smelly odor it was weird! We requwsted with a nice view but we got the back of another buildings view! The shower had some mold!
We loved being right next door to see Hamilton. Would recommend to everyone. No parking problems. valet was awesome. All the staff were very polite and helpful. We went New Years Eve so it was busy. We did have to wait for our room but the staff helped us get luggage to room so we could make our reservation for dinner. Teenagers loved the breakfast.
All of above. Check in very easy. Felt safe needing key to elevator upper floors. Great breakfast. Staff warm welcoming very helpful. Found an empty Jack Daniels fifth bottle under bed. Not ours.
Staff was great, very knowledgeable and quick to give recommendations and directions. Breakfast had a lot variety and protein and fresh fruit options. Walls were thin, I heard a conversation in the next room at 11pm. Also WIFI access was too complicated to log in from a smartphone that I gave up since I had very limited time in Chicago.
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.
Location, rooms, breakfast
The room was comfortable and large enough to have a small sitting area. I liked the extra high ceilings because the room felt much larger than the floor space. The beds were comfortable and the furniture in good condition. There was a complementary coffee and tea bar in the lobby with fresh fruit and sometimes cookies. This was a nice stop over before heading back to the room. The breakfast closes on the dot at 10am. This isn't convenient because younger people (I'm 28 years old) like to sleep in a little later. I prefer to get going around 10 or 11am. This is a simple fix, extend the breakfast hours by an hour. I'd like to see more plants indoors at this hotel because the city starts to wear on me after a while and getting a fix of nature is relieving.
The staff was very friendly and the room was very clean and well appointed. The location is also very close to many of the attractions that we were seeking out. within walking distance of Millennium park and Navy Pier.
The room was very clean and the bed was awesome. I liked the color choices for the room.
Location, cleanliness, staff. Its a minor thing, but choices of pillows are too thick for side and stomach sleepers. Parking expense.
I saved a ton of money. My room was noisy because of roommates and the train tracks right outside the window.
Every member of staff, from front desk to housekeeping, were outstandingly friendly and helpful
I liked very much the fact that the room and the bathroom were very clean and the fact that was a safe place and of course the fact that I could lock my BAGGAGE....cause when you share the room with different strangers you never know what you can "loose"....:D The only thing that I didn't liked was the fact that the breakfast was to poor.
Very convenient location. Friendly staff and guests. Linens hadn't been changed on my bed even though I arrived after 4 pm. Room was quite noisy throughout the night with people coming and going. Some one left early about 5 am and left their light on. Part of the hassles of being in a hostel with no curfew.
Nice set up, cafe on ground floor. Community kitchen with fridgerators. You can cook whatever you like and bring back leftovers.. Have to pay 10c a minute for computers onsight.
I was surprised at how well the hostel was maintained. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The blanket was to small.
They give me lots of informations about traveling.It really helps me a lot!!!
Very accommodating and nice place. Excellent value! Nothing!
Safe, welcoming environment. GREAT location close to a variety of attractions, amenities and public transportation.
the staff were very cooperative and freindely. economical hotel in an excellent location the smell of the room
It was very clean, great downtown location, employees were very nice and provided lots of info on the area like where to eat and what to do. The place was fairly quiet, provided breakfast, and had sitting areas with nice leather arm chairs.
friendly staff difficult to stay on top of cleaning (kitchen and bathrooms) when so busy
