    Good 6.0
    Unimpressed
    Room was definitely not what the pictures showed and was very dated. View was nice but the room was old and had a somewhat funky smell. Room service was very nice but the rest of the staff offered no information and there was also no hotel information inside the room.

    Our stay at the Renaissance was wonderful! The room was very nice and it is a great location close to downtown and the theatre.

    Very Good 8.0
    Meh
    Not much bang for the buck. Our room had a great view of the river. Size of the room and bathroom were good. But, it’s WAY overpriced. And $15 for wifi, $4 for a bottle of water? Raised, the lounge, was nice. Friendly staff. We will not be returning. There are too many other good hotels in the area that are much more inexpensive.
    Timothy, us1 night trip
    Exceptional 10.0
    Perfect location, friendly staff, comfy bed
    We flew in to O’Hare and were able to take the blue line train all the way to a point close to the hotel. The hotel itself has beautiful views and is in a fantastic location. We enjoyed Phantom of the Opera, great food, and shopping all within walking distance. The bed was comfy. Only disappointed that when remodeling the workout center they apparently did away with amenities they were known for which catered to adults.... bring back the steam room and hot tub options and I think I’d easily choose to stay here again.
