Location Beds were lopsided, couldn't sleep on it.
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.
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.
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
Walk into the grand lobby and you feel like you're part of Chicago history. The rooms are a little small.
Efficient and clean
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 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.
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.
The lobby is amazing.
Very small rooms and poor room service.
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.
Massive hotel. too big. very unpersonal. conference hotel and for group travel.
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.
My friend and I got there on a Thursday night. We asked the manager if we could get an upgrade since I was a gold member and the hotel was more than half empty. She denied us that courtesy. I would understand if the hotel was full but it was totally empty probably due to the bad weather so I will not stay here again
Very clean comfortable room with a great view. Close to many areas we wanted to visit. Would definitely choose this hotel again.
I enjoyed my stay. No recommendations for improvement T this time
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.
Centrally located and accessible to tourist attractions. Friendly knowledgeable staff. Value priced.
Easy walk to many restaurant, sites and public transportation.
Nice room; cool hotel No pool
almost everything $65 for parking at their hotel. too much for guest
The bed was very uncomfortable. The staff was nice but felt robotic.
Came early bc we were miserable at another hotel so we showed up at 1030AM Ann's they kindly let us check in for our four nights at that time so we could relax get and shower and unpack before hitting the city. Phenomenal location to all and I mean all things. The whole staff is friendly and helpful. Great city and river views. Would most certainly recommended to anyone visiting the city.
Even though the hotel offers nice spacious rooms with an incredibly friendly staff the noise left us with less than desirable evenings. The noise from people in the hallway travelled down the entire hallway echoing, causing the ability to sleep quite difficult. Conversely early in the morning when people were beginning to check out you heard the elevator almost every time... and we were at least 4-5 rooms away from the elevator. Additionally there was hotel room service plates left in the hallway for 1 1/2 days with dirty food on it. I'm a patient person but that's unacceptable for even more than half a day
Hotel and staff were great. Great location! We will book here in the future!
Check in was a breeze..Location was wonderful, and staff was courteous and helpful. I can't think of any negatives....
It is a large high rise in Chicago, but the staff makes you feel like you are very important! Their concierges are awesome...make sure you utilize their help!
We loved the location, the room and the view- just didn't like being next to the elevator. Other than that- it was great!!
Location is fantastic and staff were all incredibly friendly. River views from room were great. Facilities in the room were a little run down but clean and comfortable beds and everything else was great.
Nice room on 38th floor with great view. Location was great. Walking and Uber/Lyft is no problem. Elevator is really loud for room 3802 but only during high traffic hours. (View made up for it) Restaurant is disappointing for price and selection. If I am going to spend $25 for breakfast $10+ dollars for cocktails or any amount for average food at dinner, there are other options within walking distance that are SO much better. They need reasonable prices to compliment convenience.
The location is great, and the staff was friendly. I reserved two rooms in advance, but they did not put us next to each other. As a family traveling, this was disappointing.
Right by elevator
Rummen är små men funktionella. Tillgång till trådlöst nätverk i lobbyn som erbjuder en lugn och avslappnad miljö för arbete med en kopp kaffe. Personalen var tillmötesgående i alla frågor som behövde hanteras.
Läget var mycket bra. Frukosten var utmärkt men dyr. Roligt att bo i ett så vackert hus. Rummet var litet, mindre än väntat.
Helt OK hotell pa ett bra lage. Enkel standard till rimligt pris. Nej allt OK
Perfekt läge centralt i Chicago. Snabb och trevlig personal. Små rum men tillräckligt stora
Ligger centralt och bra och är rent och trivsamt. God frukost!
Läget är mycket bra för möten i Loopområdet Inget WiFi på rummet
Lugnt läge fast ändå centralt. Hyfsat pris.Familjärt utan att vara lågbudget.Luftkonditioneringen fungerade utmärkt.Att få räkningen in under dörren sista natten. Saknade minibar -egentligen bara möjligheten att kyla dricka och frukostyoughurten. Lyhördhet.
Det fanns varken WiFi eller minibar på rummet. De drog en hotellnatt på mitt kreditkort långt innan vistelsen.
Young un-educated receptionist
Närhet till bankdestriktet. Ganska slitet hotell
Comfortable rooms Nice facilities Staff was not very helpful or nice Expensive Bad location Far from town
Fast valet , nice accommodation, not a bad location. Expensive parking.
Got a great price for an amazing room. Good on premise restaurant. Easy access just off freeway, adjacent parking (pricey). Parking should be free or subsidized for hotel guests.
The price was the cheapest we could find Everything was wrong the do not disturb sign got taken off somehow and we were still in the room when they tried to clean it and the beds were too soft and caved in. The pool wasn't fun or relaxing at all and there was no hot tub. It was our honeymoon and they didn't even say congrats when we told Them that at check in. The ice machine was broken and when we asked for an extra sheet we had to call three times and it took an hour to get one. Also there needs to be a continental breakfast or at least some fruit we can grab instead of waiting in a stupid long line just to buy an apple or water. We hated it there.
Good hotel from a dependable chain, with convenient deli and ATM inside, direct access to the convention center next door, generally helpful staff. My room was not stylish but it was spotless, comfortable and larger than I expected. Location was fine, easy to get a taxi. I did not try the restaurants or deal with parking. The hot water in my room was not dependable. The lobby of the hotel had an overpowering strong cologne smell - it was like they were going for a 'signature scent' of 'too much Axe.'
Room was clean and well appointed; staff were friendly; fitness center was phenomenal
Absolutely unacceptable and unsanitarity that the beds not have Duvet cover!
Jeff helped us check in and he definetly set the tone. He was very welcoming, suggested some places to see in Chicago, and upgraded our room for our anniversary. The best customer service we have experienced in a while. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The view was amazing and it was close to a bus route. An anniversary to remember. Thanks Hyatt.
Quick, safe walk to Soldier Field at night with kids. Coffee pot in closet, didn't find it until we were leaving.
We arrived early on our flight and the staff had no problem checking us in way before the regular time. Very accommodating and incredibly friendly staff. Facility was clean and well maintained. We plan on staying again next time we are in Chicago
Our room had an excellent view, guest services was extremely helpful any time we needed anything, even with the most minor of things. The hotel is within walking distance of the magnificent mile, Millenium park, Shedd aquarium, and the Field museum. The Lincoln Park zoo is only 5 miles away, so this hotel is in the perfect location. We really enjoyed the view that we had from our room, being on the upper floors lets you look over all of Chicago. The only complaint I would have wold be the cleaning of the room. We found a bottle cap just sitting on the floor near one of the chairs, and I know it wasn't ours because we are not of age to drink. The other problem was the bathroom floor. When I stepped out of the shower I stepped on the tile and there was some sticky substance all over the floor by the sink.
the staff and the room was very nice.. Having to pay to park and the restaurants were $$$$..
Beautiful view and rooms Rooms got hot at night and had to shower to feel better about it
Glasses which were used and kept aside for replacement were again kept in the same position for usage. they were not replaced just like any other utilities. overall very nice place
The location is good: close to subway, next to park, easy to get food to eat. I thought this is a 4-star hotel. When I saw the entrance of this hotel, it looks like 4-star. But when I got into the room, I thought I was in a 2-star Inn. The coffee maker is dirty, full of dust. The computer is not working and not able to off screen. The decoration of the room doesn't look like 4-star. Also, when the guest at next room used the bathroom, the loud "boom" sound would shock you. The WiFi is only free at lobby. The speed is really slow. When I refused to pay $30 for upgrade room with WiFi, the staff looked not happy. My teen girl was very disappointed for her trip to Chicago. She always wants to stay in hotel but this time she didn't want to stay longer.
A Very Walkable City with wonderful waterfront area and Great Food at Lou Malnati's and Gene & Georgetti. Museums, Aquarium, Planetarium, Soldier Field, Jazz Clubs and Great Restaurants...Everything is centrally located in and around Grant Park which is right across the street from the HILTON CHICAGO. The bed pillows were AWFUL! mushy and no support. A minor point, that would NOT prevent me from staying there again. My biggest CON was the cost of parking $56/day (self park) or $70/day (valet), for the cost of the room it should be included. Also in-room WiFi is an additional charge, should also be included.
Good room rate. Staff was very friendly.Very good location. Very disappointed that we were not informed of the very expensive over night parking fee.
Liked: - Location of the hotel, right on a Michigan Ave - Professional staff - Big and clean swimming pool Did Not like: - No laundromat facilities onsite (important for me with family of 5 and extended stay) - Outrageous rate of $56.00 parking rate for 12+ hours - Have to pay to use the exercise facilities
Large lift lobby, never needed to wait for lifts Exorbitant price for outdated facilities. Extra charge for gym use, for 2-hour checkout extension, poor Wi-Fi coverage, HHonors login doesn't match room reservation detail. Do your wallet a favour and stay elsewhere.
Staff, room, location. Only one kiosk to get coffee in the morning. You need to fix this. There is no reason it should take 20 min to get a coffee and pastry in the morning.
My hotel was right acros from the park..a short walk from the museum and aquarium, as well as a ferry to the pier! The room was clean and large, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The lobby was beautiful! Hotel also has a large pool..was over all very impressed, would stay again on a return visit! That I had to leave!
need upgrade. Wall paper in bathroom peered off. Mattress was uneven and too soft. Too dark in the room even in the daytime.
Loved the Luxurious Amenities this hotel offers. Our room was comfortable, cold, and dark. All we needed was a fan to soothe me to sleep and upon calling the front desk, they delivered a fan to our room. Only negative I have is that our room had poor lighting. I'm a makeup artist so lighting is key for anyone to put on makeup, let alone a professional makeup artist like myself. Upgrade the lighting please!!
The staff was friendly and remembered me by name. The room was much smaller than expected for the Hilton. Parking is OUTRAGEOUS!
Our room was beautiful with a spectacular city view. Complete functioning kitchette which we did not take advantage of because we were only there one night but would have been great for a three day weekend stay. Staff was friendly and professional. We had a light fixture broken in our bathroom when we first arrived and they had it replaced and room service had cleaned the glass up in under 20 mins. Impressive for an operation this size. Within walking distance to many desired locations.
The staff was extremely helpful with everything from directions to meal preferences. The quality of atmosphere was also very good. The decor and views from the hotel were better than anywhere I've ever stayed. The pool area was not on par with the essence or ambiance of the rest of the hotel, with the lack of hot tub areas and the extreme plainness of the pool area compared to the rest of the hotel.
Everything. Zero complaints Service was boardline TOO GOOD if that is such a thing
great accomodations and service
Extremely helpful staff and the facilities were first class from room amenities to the gym. Location is great - easy walking access to shopping, tourist destinations etc
Service staff never made me feel like I was a bother. I loved the spacious and newly remodeled room we stayed in. Beautiful bump out bay window with breathtaking views of the river and Lake Michigan. Bathroom had very high end finishes, and also included a television in the mirror! The maintenance guy who tried to fix a broken bathroom light was using very profane language as he failed at repairing the light. However, this staff member's behavior scored us a free upgrade from city view - to river lake view - so it all worked out.
This is a great hotel the atmosphere that employees everyone was great there
Superior service and accommodations, personal at hotel far superior to any staff at any hotel!
Bra läge i staden. Trots storstad så var det lugnt, hördes inte mycket av trafiken. Bra hotellrestaurang/bar med bra priser. Nej.
Personalen var kanon! Det var VÄLDIGT centralt, allt fanns inom gångavstånd. Skulle man utanför stan så fanns busshållplats utanför hotellet. Rummet var på tok för litet för tre personer. Restaurangen som låg i anslutning till hotellet hade sur personal och de var inte ett dugg serviceminded...
Mycket bra centralt läge med nära till tåg till/från flygplatsen. Ett bra hotell om man vill kunna gå omkring för att lära känna staden. Nära till muséer och utmärkta bussförbindelser. Nej egentligen inte. Mitt rum vette mot en innergård som inte var så rolig, men enkelrum brukar inte ha bästa läge.
Elevator was an issue. Very small for the size hotel.
Great location and value...staff was fantastic, reacted to every need we had with a positive attitude and were very timely. nothing...we don't spend a lot of time in a hotel when we travel...met our needs perfectly
This is a Kayak review- not a hotel review. I booked my travel a week in advance and with 2 days notice I received a call that I no longer had a reservation and there was nothing that could be done. It left me scrambling to find a room and I had to pay 40% more than expected because I never really had a reservation. Will never use Kayak again.
Great location just off the Magnificent Mile easy to get to just with everything you might need to downtown. When was nice but needed a few small maintenance items repaired other than that it was a great place to stay.
Can't say a thing. I travel quite a bit every year and stay in dozens of hotels. I must say this was the worst experience at a hotel I have ever had. I would never suggest this place to anyone.
Really wonderful employees that made us feel welcomed and comfortable. They were very accommodating and polite.
Great location with a nice hotel design. The drum bar and the bakery were nice perks. Its an older building and that is very obvious. The AC is questionable, the elevators are small and take quite a while, and if you want normal pillows you need to request them.
Very clean. Microwave and fridge nice to have. Close to shopping and navy pier Self park was really valet parking down the street.
Hotel was clean and staff was exceptionally friendly. Doorman was extremely helpful. Donut shop downstairs was delicious and convenient. The location was decent if you're willing to walk about a mile to anything you'd like to see. Room was a little small and elevator was extremely small preventing us from getting our stroller in if anyone else was in the elevator.
Very nice updates to room and bathroom. Comfortable bedding, drumBAR on the 18th floor, and great location. Room was extremely hot and the temp could not be adjusted. The room was also very small but worked for our 1 night stay.
The location is excellent for whatever activity of interest in downtown Chicago. Attentive and courtesy staff
Närheten till city, både till Michegan Avenue och till the Loop. Hotellpersonalen gav oss de tipsoch vägbeskrivningar vi frågade efter. Glatt överraskad att de förvarade vårt bagage mellan utcheckning och planets avgång. Synd att det inte fanns något protein till frukost. Frukosten bestod enbart av sötsaker, fett och kolhydrater. Mera köttpålägg och exempelvis ägg.
Utmärkt, bekvämt och rymligt rum med vänlig bemanning. Nära till shopping med lugnt läge på sidogata. Nej
Den fräsha och vackra interiören. Läget i stan var perfekt. Bra hjälp från hotellkonfrencieren. Gratis morgontidning några dagar i veckan. Dåligt att internet inte var gratis och att frukost inte ingick. Vill man betala för att äta frukost på hotellet var det väldigt dyrt. Frukostbuffé kostade över 20$ per person.
Det låg väldigt centralt och rummen var fina. Personalen var trevlig och gav oss bra service. Dåligt att hotellets restaurang inte hade kvällsservering.
Perfekt läge på Gold Coast och Magnificent Mile. Helt ok rum. Frukosten i restaurangen på hotellet var a la carte och erbjöd bara ett fåtal rätter. Var inte värde för pengarna.
Läget är perfekt. Fräscht, rent och mysiga rum. Trevlig personal. Nej.
The staff was amazing. Everything detail from decor to comfort was superior in quality and taste. Fantastic location. Amazing pool ans spa. The additional room service charge
Location is excellent. staff is good.
The rooms are large and the bathroom is awesome ,The rooms are large and the bathroom is awsom
I loved the spa, and the club level. The art--in the halls, and the rooms--was quite wonderful and unique in my experience. The food on the club level was excellent. And the spa is the best I've found amongst hotels, and in Chicago. Staff was quite helpful. It is very expensive. I was amazed at how expensive the overnight parking would have been ($ 71), and chose to park for 1/3 of that in a garage next door.
This place is so extra!! I have stayed at the London location but it had been so long ago that I forgot how nice it is.
Very nice. Excellent price for how luxurious it was. The room was unbelievable and the location was perfect. The parking was very easy, if you don't want to use the valet, there is a parking garage right next to the hotel. I had called to confirm our check in was at 3pm, and I received an email stating that our check in was at 3pm. However, our room was not available until after 4pm. We had missed our dinner reservations because of this. And being that we paid alot to stay at this hotel, they did not offer any compensation for their error.
Best was very comfortable. Room was smaller than I thought it was going to be. They really need to add a curved shower curtain.
The room was perfectly sized and extremely comfortable. Not a single thing.
The receptionist messed up my receipt.I used my company's card to stay and I am the only person who stay in the hotel.And when checking out,I just asked for the receipt but didn't check it.after coming back,I have to use the receipt to do my reinbursement,but found out that it is not under my name and the stay person wrote down two,which looks pretty bad on me!i called the hotel to change the receipt name,they refused it bc it is a past reservation! The most annoying thing is that when I checked out using the compan card,I asked them if it is ok to pay with a card not under my name.they didn't say anything.and the worst thing is that the receptionist change the name of my reservation in the system and didn't tell me about it.moreover,the receipt amount doesn't match my reservation amount which is also ridiculous!!!All in all, this experiment almost cost me to not be able to reinburse my stay. They r obviously not professional and it gives me a really bad memory here!
Great hotel, great service, great room. Couldn't have been happier with the Hotel Allegro The booking site Amoma.com gave me an invalid confirmation number, and since the hotel was already full for the second half of my stay, I ended up quite stressed out and dragging my luggage around for a full day until the hotel had a cancellation and I was able to stay. Amoma.com was very responsive and professional when they finally responded (I think they're based in Switzerland), and I think some third party was responsible for the booking problem, but regardless, my stay was more distressing than I had hoped for. If you have a choice, I would recommend booking with another agency for this location.
Very clean and friendly staff No iron in the room
Clean! Beautiful! Wish the bathtubs were a tad bigger!
Luxurious hotel The room is much smaller than it seems in the photos. Walls are super thin which makes privacy very difficult. Expect to hear your neighbors.
Rooms were incredibly tiny. Elevators did not work.
Everything was great!
This review is not a negative review of the hotel. Rather it is a result of a horrible experience with kayak and their vendors. Upon arriving at the hotel, I was told at the front desk my reservation did not exist. After showing them several emails from kayaks vendors, they told me those confirmation numbers did not exist if that was the fifth person with the same issue booking through kayak that day. After several hours on the phone with no successful resolution with kayaks vendors, my partner was finally able to secure a room for us at another hotel. We are still trying to resolve this issue with. I will not be booking through kayak again.
Perfect for theater weekend. Great location, beautiful room . Thoughtful amenities.
The location. My wife and I went to see the Phantom of the Opera playing next door at the Cadillac Palace. I can't say enough about the convenience of having the hotel next door. no having to walk blocks to our vehicle. Walked down the sidewalk and into the hotel, was able to avoid the cold Chicago weather. The Room. We stayed in Room 405. Our view out of the 2 windows, the first was a brick wall, the second, an alley way. At about 2am, for some reason the windows decided they wanted to bang against the frame endlessly, not allowing neither my wife or I to sleep. The bed was definately not a King Bed, and for it being a Premier Room, I would have expected the bathroom to be bigger than the size of a closet. I can't say I wouldn't stay here again, but would want to see the room before check-in.
Great spot. Conveniently located. Pleased overall with the property.
Great location a few steps from the best shopping and restaurants in Chicago. Very friendly and professional staff.
The French ambiance. A bit expensive.
Large rooms and bathrooms. Plenty of fast elevators. Great location for the north end of the Magnificent Mile. More attention to detail could be provided to the cleanliness of the shower area. Several areas of black mildew in the grout of the shower wall.
Rooms too small
beautiful hotel bed was too soft
I would have preferred a discount on the Parking for staying in the hotel.
Great location, beautiful room and good staff. Except for my wife losing her nose ring and no thin sheets were available; our stay was outstanding.
Great location, great value for the price. Staff need to stop acting so high fallutin. Yes it is the Sofitel, but you still work for me.
The rooms were nice, but our room had not been properly cleaned. There was an empty wine bottle in the trash, a stain on the carpet, and dirt on the bedspread. The location is great for exploring the city. A block from Michigan Ave, the beach, and Rush street. The customer service was not good. We waited 30-45 minutes for our bags to be brought up to our room and finally had to go down to get them. There were two bellmen standing in the lobby doing nothing and our luggage was just sitting there. As mentioned the room was not properly cleaned which is never a good feeling when you are staying in a hotel. I requested a late check-out and was immediately told "No due to someone else staying in our room and they needed to clean it". He then asked what room we were staying in. He again said it wasn't possible as someone was staying in that room and they would need to clean it. When we checked out I forgot a brand new shirt I bought while staying there. I rarely hang things in the closet and had done so since it was a new shirt. I realized this the next day and called and again was given horrible customer service. They told me it was not in the room and that nobody stayed in that room the night before so they couldn't help me. Obviously, the maid who cleaned that room took it, but they accepted no responsibility for that. Not to mention they couldn't give us a late check-out due to another guest needing the room. It's a shame the customer service was so bad because it is a nice hotel in a great area of the city.
we were traveling with our toddler. the hotel crib came with complimentary johnson & johnson toiletries and a stuffed bear. the room was clean, comfortable and spacious enough to be tolerable with a toddler in the same room. the bathroom was spacious, in excellent condition and well-appointed. we were on a high floor and had a great view of the city. it would've been great to have iPhone charging docks/stations. we forgot to bring one charger.
I've stayed at several nice hotels in Chicago and this is by far my favorite. Very comfortable, tastefully decorated, incredible A-V/home automation controls. This was the perfect home-base for a multi-day business trip. The atrium also had a splendid Sunday brunch with string quartet. Couldn't be better
Really enjoyed how friendly everyone was towards us especially since we were a young couple there and the staff told us good morning and everything each day and always had a smile on their face I can't really say I didn't like anything about the hotel or service. The only thing was it was a little expensive for us. Other than that everything was excellent
EVERYTHING, THE SERVICE WAS THE BEST AND THE BATHROOMS LARGE AND BEAUTIFULLY DONE. NICE TOUCHES EVERYWHERE! NOTHING
Great location across from Saks and neiman marcus. Hotel gorgeous, bright, elegant in public areas, very comfortable and luxurious room and bathroom
Beautiful room. Inpecable service
I would guess that most people who gave this place a positive review have never stayed at trump. For the same price trump offers a vastly better experience and much more comfort. The gym and spa at trump make this place look like a spa from rural Cambodia. Rooms were an ever so slightly better version of the Conrad. No pillow menu. No glacier water. No espresso machine in room. No microwave or stovetop with dishwasher( all present at trump). And no cake with gold leaf on it for my birthday!!!
