Editorial review:

This large, bustling hotel has a great location with Millenium Park, the Art Institute, and restaurants within walking distance. The El is adjacent. The fitness center is top-notch, the lobby is grand, and it's undergoing renovations. Rooms are hit or miss, though. Some are small and stuffy, and the service is mediocre. There are plans for a new spa.

  • Front desk staff were quite good - Checkin anytime - Cleaning staff was a bit late each day
  • Bathroom facilities were superior - Room itself was ok - Free internet in lobby area - Great gym
  • Good shower with double shower heads - Coffee maker was better then average - Included robes which was nice

            Very nice. Maybe a little too noise from other rooms, but everything else just great!

            The staff was very courteous and helpful. The complimentary breakfast did not show up on their reservation somehow, but when I showed them my e-mail confirmation from Booked.net, they were more than happy to accommodate me.

          • Family with children

            The hotel's history and lobby is fantastic, just go there for a drink.

            10.0

            We brought our two small dogs and found the staff to be quite helpful with everything. For such a wonderful hotel with such nice amenities it was a pleasant surprise that our dogs were allowed to stay with us. The staff were even able to check us in a little early so we could get the dogs settled in after their long car ride.We would stay there again!!

          • Single
            8.2

            I thought the help were friendly, went out of their way, and knew their areas of specialty. I liked the bar in the lobby.

            Rooms could be updated more-- especially the bathroom.

          • Couple
            6.2

            I had an executive suite - so we had the private elevator - that was nice.

            The rate that I paid for this hotel was ridiculous. There is no way it was worth that much. The lobby was a disaster. Tons of people - nobody assisting patrons. No one knew where they were going - it was totally crazy.

          • Group of friends
            6.6

            The staff was amazing....so nice and helpful from housekeeping to concierg.... By the way the latter was the best I have ever had, no attitude and wanting to make my stay successful!!!

            I paid a lot for this room and there were no amenities....no coffee, no tea, no robes, no mini bar.............the room was empty and impersonal. In todays economy give a little it goes a long way!!!

          • Single
            7.0

            Spacious twin double bed and two bathroom bedroom. Tastefully furnished.Very comfortable bed. Good help with luggage and Taxis. Beautiful lobby. Sense of history. Close to Art Museum, Chicago Symphony and Macy's on State Street. Have returned three times..

            No fridge or coffee machine in rooms. Carpet in rooms is getting tired.Limited number of good restaurants within walking distance for evening meals.

          • Family with children
            4.6

            No free wi-fi that it is not good for such a hotel. The house keeper did not refill toiletry and when we ask for refill it took around 20 min.to come to the room. So I consider that this does not match Hilton standard. The room does not equip with modern facilities i.e. Fridge, LCD TV, newspaper.

          • Family with children
            7.4

            Central location, excellent room service, great price

            Service is not good on weekends, I booked 2 rooms and they put us very far apart but on the same floor

          • Couple
            8.2

            The executive floor upgrade offered was excellent value for money.

            The room had a connecting door to a neighbouring room that allowed noise through too easily.

          • Family with children
            10.0

            Very comfortable quiet rooms. Excellent bartender and food service inthe main bar. Courteous and helpful front desk and bell service and parking attendents. Thanks again

            No complaints. Wish for free parking .

            The lobby and bar area are amazing with the marble and designs. The breakfast wait staff are very friendly and very helpful. My wife is celiac and they knew to bring gluten free bread and were very helpful.
