Very Good 8.2 From 3,808 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Excellent family stay for Hamilton show.
Awesome beautiful historic hotel with the list friendly staff! We had 4 rooms and were wonderful. We could have used a couple extra pillows in the king bed.
Paige, usFamily trip
Very Good 8.0
Historic, great location
Great location for walking around Millenium Park and visiting lots of good restaurants and bars. It was very historic with great motif inside!
Lauren, usRomance trip
Fair 4.0
Because we booked via Hotels.com we couldn’t use our Hilton membership for complimentary internet, which begs the question, why upcharge for WiFi service? It’s 2019. The check-in process involved rude and unhelpful service The room itself was in desperate need of a deep clean, very dusty and old, worn carpeting. The interior of the hold is grand and quite beautiful but the rest of the experience left a lot to be desired. I’ll stay elsewhere next time I’m in Chicago.

Fair 4.0
Overpriced for what it is
It’s nice on the inside but my room was really small and they make you park offsite if you want to self park. They said they validate that parking for $47 rather than $50 which isn’t a huge savings.
Cal, usBusiness trip
Poor 2.0
Not the best
The steam room was closed without advance warning. I forgot my key and had to go to the front desk to get a new key, and the computers were down, so it took me ~30 minutes to get into my room.
