Great summer spot
Loved everything here but occasionally met with sub standard service. Won't keep us from returning as we loved the outdoor pool and the fitness center.

What a great hotel and location for a family visit
My wife and I live in the Chicago suburbs. We stayed at the Radisson Blu for an overnight Chicago visit with our grandkids. We found the hotel to be perfect for our needs. The hotel was lovely and rooms quite comfortable. The indoor and outdoor pools (with kids pool) was a big plus! Best is the great location just blocks from important kid-friendly destinations...Maggie Daily Park, Millennium Park, the Riverwalk, Navy Pier...and just 2 blocks from Wildberry for breakfast! Adults can have a great time here too...;-)

Very Good 8.0
Solid hotel stay
Building is great, the amenities are great, stayed in a King bed City view and it was alright. No robes and room wasn't as big as I was hoping but overall a solid place to stay with a nice restaurant inside it and a CVS near by so you dont have to pay the exorbitant prices of the hotel

A gem of a place!
From the moment we arrived on our bikes, Anthony at the front desk gave us personal, incredible service, listening to us and making our stay exceptional. We have stayed at this Blu previously and every visit has been wonderful thanks to the excellent staff. The hotel itself is impeccably clean and well maintained, the rooms modern, spacious and beautiful. I honestly can’t say enough about how great a place this is!
