You have to check this place out!
This hotel is so unique and the staff was amazing! The front desk was incredibly helpful and full of information. They took off our internet fee so the only additional cost was valet parking. This hotel is art and science inspired. The atmosphere was one like no other. They have 2 robots that bring little items to your room that you may need, all you have to do is call the front desk. I definitely recommend staying at Hotel EMC2. We will definitely be back!

Great downtown location!
I really enjoyed the hotel, which is situated on a less busy street in downtown Chicago. Beds were great! Room was fun and comfortable. The shower was a little piece of heaven! Loved the robots! The service was the best I’ve ever experienced.
