Great staff, excellent location, beautiful rooms, amazing service and delicious food. Like coming home each time I stay at a Four Seasons. Truly a Five Star experience like no other. You get more than you pay for when compared to other so called 5 star hotels.

Our stay was made special by the professional and friendly staff. Since the original room did not have a great view they moved us to another when we asked but there was no extra charge. Their attention to detail made the stay special.

My husband and I were in Chicago in early July for four days to celebrate our anniversary. We stayed at the Deluxe Michigan Avenue Suite which was very large and completely comfortable. The hotel's Concierge was very helpful and attentive. We especially love Laura - she is simply the best! We booked a river cruise package and were not completely... More

I have stayed at a number of Ritz Carlton's across the country and would not say this was among the best, but it was very nice. We chose this hotel because I had a conference there. The lobby is beautiful and the staff generally helpful. The room was nothing special, but nicely appointed and the bed super comfortable. Housekeeping was... More

We had such a great stay at this hotel! We stayed in a one bedroom suite on the 29th floor. The room was impeccably clean, the bed was comfortable and the views were just out of this world! The service was amazing as well. My three kids were able to go into the kitchen and bake cookies with the pastry... More

I have stayed in hotels all over the world, and none top my experience at the Ritz Chicago. We stayed in a fabulous suite with an infant and a three year old, and the staff went above and beyond to make sure our needs were met. It started with arriving to the room to find a crib already set up,... More

Hi we enjoyed our stay very much in this hotel. Although I had planned to swim, didn't quite make it there since it was a brief stay - 3 nights. We enjoyed it so much we have already booked it for our daughter's graduation next year.
