This hotel didn't blow me away in any regards but everything was adequate. The rooms are a bit too flashy with a disco-ballesque bathroom and teal bed room carpeting. Location was fine, close to Millennium Park and walking distance to several places. Overall the hotel was nice but nothing spectacular. For the money I would expect more, however. I probably […] would stay elsewhere in Chicago next time I'm there on business or pleasure. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Solid 4 Star"
The rooms are recently renovated and ultra modern. 3 Mbps free wifi internet. Decent shower. Outdoor heated pool and hot tub are incredible. You can't go wrong here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Right next to Millenium Park"
What a great hotel! My wife and I just stayed for two nights at the Blu Aqua and loved every minute of it. the room in which we stayed had a corner view and a large balcony. The interior of the room featured hardwood floors and other nice amenities. The staff at the hotel was especially polite and accommodating. We go to Chicago once or twice a year, […] and won't hesitate to stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Radisson is in a great location a couple blocks off Michigan toward the lake. The rooms are nice and roomy. It has a great workout facility, outdoor and indoor pool and an outdoor rubberized running track. This was great for after meetings on one of my days there. Very convenient proximity to lakefront trail and adjacent to a terrific park that […] seems like an island within the big city. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.

"Cool building near Millenium Park"
Nice room with comfortable bed. Great bathroomGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is in the Aqua building which is a great building, and the view all around is great. The running track circles the building on the 3rd floor so you get to see an assortment of Chicago skylines and lake views as you run -- or as you sit by the outdoor pool. You need your key to get to everything (pool, elevators, towels), so take it with y […] ou. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very pleasant experience, hotel staff were exceptional, friendly and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
The staff at the Radisson Blu Aqua were phenomenal; they met our every need and then some; The property was magical and magnificent; my only hiccup was it was a little too chilly to utilize the outdoor pool. But the indoor was wonderful with designated lap lanes; We were upgraded to business and that allowed us to partake of their business lounge with […] beer, wine and an assortment of snacks in the evening and a lucious continental breakfast in the morning. The hotel is just steps away from the Art Insitute; Millenium Park and Navy Pier. Even though it was pricey -- the rooms were luxurious and the amenities everything anyone could ask for.

"I didn't get the Blu's!"
Had an awesome time at the Blu! Didn't know what to expect since I am a young guy and do not carry the facade of the everyday entrepreneur. They treated me with respect and helped me every step of the way. Great people, great appearance, great atmosphere. Overall just a great place!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful view of Park and Pier"
Had a terrible time finding the hotel. We were using navigation, and it took us below ground to a maze of streets, lanes, dead ends, and various parking garages. Finally saw a small sign for the Blu Aqua garage and from there getting to the hotel was fairly easy. Front desk said they had others complain of having a similar experience when using navigation […] system....something about 3D??? Hotel room was very modern in design and comfortable. We had a 2 Queen bed room with a balcony that faced east and overlooked Millennium Park and partial views of the Chicago River and the Navy Pier. Beautiful! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Vacation made easy"
This is a wonderful hotel with accommodating staff. We felt safe the entire time, and the room was very clean. The view was fantastic! The only trouble we had was upon arrival - we didn't know where to go or where to park. Finding the underground parking was difficult (FYI, it's under the bridge, and you have to look for a relatively small blue sign […] that says Radisson). Once we were parked, however, everything was very smooth. We took cabs the rest of the weekend, and enjoyed our stay very much - the folks at the front door would call a cab for us too.

"A must stay!"
My husband and I stayed at the Radisson this past weekend, as we were running the Shamrock Shuffle on Sunday morning. We arrived on Saturday about 2 hours prior to "official" check-in. We were greeted by the friendliest doormen and hostess and were promptly given our room. The room was lovely. It was tastefully decorated with modern tile and hardwood […] floors. Not only was the room comfortable, but it was exceptionally clean. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant, Fillini. Again, we were greeted by the friendliest of staff. I have nothing but wonderful things to say for our waitress, Ashleigh. She was absolutely fantastic! She was extremely helpful and fun. She explained everything and was so down to earth and easy to strike up a conversation with. The food, itself, was well done and tasty, however, small in portion. I ordered a specialty drink from one of the "mixologists". I did not care for the first drink I ordered, so Ashleigh was quick to provide me an alternative, which was really really good! I have nothing but great things to say about our stay. The next time we are in the city for any period of time, this will most definitely be my hotel of choice. Thanks to everyone!

"Not worth the money"
Our room was small, not spacious as the advertisments said. The carpet had stains on it. The shower was slick, almost fell once. The furniture was VERY uncomfortable. We had to call housekeeping because there was no toilet paper or kleenex. The only redeeming quality was the hotel staff. They were all very nice and helpful. I will not stay there again, […] becasue it just was not worth the money I paid. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Near Millennium Park"
We stayed for a quick trip for the outdoor hockey game at Soldier Field and the staff couldnt have been more accommodating. They were friendly and helpful. The hotel was beautiful, the rooms were clean and it was very close to Millennium Park and within walking distance of many of the sights of Chicago.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Weekend in Chicago."
The room was beautifully decorated and very clean. The bed and bedding was fresh and very comfortable. The decor of the room and hotel was unique. The hotel was in a great location, close to many attractions. Also, the staff and the service they provided was excellent.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice two day get away. Would have been better if parking wasn't so expensive, and if we had gotten a king bed like we reserved. Everything was clean and comfortable. Food was very good from Filinis. Park view from wasn't quite what we expected, considering we were facing a building, and if you walked out on the balcony, you could see a very small amount […] of the Millennium park. Other wise, it was a very nice hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Definitely Not The Best"
It was not what we expected. Me and my boyfriend decided to spend our Valentine's Day here which was also our anniversary. Based on the hotels.com images the room looked much bigger and showed the bathroom to have a tub and shower stand. They said it couldn't be done for the room I was looking for because carpet rooms apparently don't offer that. I […] also paid for a city view and balcony on a high floor and k received a room on the fourth floor with the view of someone's office. I was very disappointed for the rate I paid. Never coming back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel Chicago Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I am truly sorry that you had a dissapointing stay and that you would have preferred a room on a higher floor with a tub and seperate shower. We do our best to accomodate each request, and I apologize that your requests were not available. I hope that we have another opportunity to welcome you back in the future. All the best , Pierre-Louis Giacotto General Manager
"Great service. Close to sights"
Hotel was clean. Great location. Great view. Service was great. We were upgraded before we arrived. They also allowed us to check in early.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Tacky rooms, not enough lighting"
The hotel is clean and conveniently located. The rooms are tacky as all-get-out. And with that tacky decor comes lighting that makes it impossible to see anything. Seriously, the trendy lights are ill-suited for finding stuff in your suitcase. We thought about asking the concierge for a flashlight. The room was small, and the furniture uncomfortable. […] For instance, there was no place to put the coffee tray down. Also, there's no refrigerator, so you can't keep a bottle of water. It was not the kind of room you want to spend time in.

"Super nice - but don't pay for "better views""
Great hotel, nice location, quite neighbourhood, have to walk a few blocks for almost everything. Room are great and very modern. but, do not pay extra for the "view upgrade". is not worth it, and is still obstructed view. so save that money. otherwise no complaints.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel on a quiet street"
Was really good, after a bad first experience. The facilities they have at the hotel are great - not many hotels have an indoor basketball court. I would stay just for the gym and pool. Close enough to everything main in Chicago, although on a very quiet street. Definitely would recommend it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location in downtown Chicago"
Helpful staff and wonderful accommodations. We were able to take a short taxi ride to the Bears Game at Soldier Field. The pool room can in handy when we wanted to stay in, as did the hot tub.Genuine Expedia guest review
I was very satisfied with this hotel stay, everything you could ask for, Blue Aqua has it. Next time I am in town I will stay at the same place, over and over.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent hotel, but it had a few issues."
Beautiful hotel in downtown Chicago. Excellent views from upper floors. Our the room was very nice, with a spacious floor plan. I was very pleased with the room and its amenities. There was even an iPad supplied with the room to help guests. We stayed here to celebrate New Year's Eve as a fun couple's getaway. My trip to this hotel was overall a nice […] experience, but it was not without its problems. There were a few housekeeping issues. The shower was not very clean, there were several strands of hair in the shower. The floor near the toilet was not clean (stains). Our bathroom sink was also clogged and I unfortunately had to brush my teeth using the tub. Overall, it was by all appearances a top tier hotel in a magnificent location of a great city. We enjoyed it for the most part, if not for our inconveniences. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
""Glad You're Here" Hospitality"
We stayed at this hotel for NYE. I can truly say from the time I walked up to the front door, I received the "Glad You're Here" hospitality. Every hotel employee that we encounted was on point. Check in was a piece of cake. No long lines and most of all "smiling faces" behind each of the check in stations. The hotel/room was as beautiful as the pictures […] that I had saw on line. Very high tech property. We could not have been in our room longer than 15 minutes before the telephone rang. The concierge welcomed me again to hotel and ask how my stay was thus far. I mention that my room was a little on the chilly side. She explained the heating process and said that if it didn't warm up to please call back. After an hour I called concierge regarding the heating situation. She apologized and sent the engineer up to see me. Within ten minutes the engineer was knocking at my door. Very pleasant with a smile on his face. Again, I felt the "Glad you're here" hospitality. He listened to what I had to say and then told me exactly what he was going to do. It's was fixed in a matter of minutes and I began to feel the heat coming from the air vent. YES!!!!. This hotel is very beauitul. The fireplace in the lobby is to die for. So cozy and romantic. The beds are extremely comfortable and we loved the 'FREE' free wi-fi. With all the amenities that this hotel has to offer, there was no need for us to leave the property.

We stay at Radisson Blu for 2 nights for our anniversary. We had a great stay. Radisson Blu is classy and clean, brand new (built in 2011), close walk to navy pier, millennium park, and downtown.

The bar in the lobby is very nice, upscale and has a great atmosphere.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is beautiful hotel with a stunning, well-thought-out room. Incredibly comfy bed and great views of lakefront and even a few slices of Lake Michigan. The bathroom is luxurious and I love the overhead shower fixture! Only downside: Columbus Avenue is just a tiny bit off the beaten path. You're going to have to walk 10 minutes to get anywhere you […] want to go in the loop or to Magnificent Mile. Awful cold six months of the year around there! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
