Stayed here for a few nights. Location is pretty good, though getting onto Michigan Avenue requires you to walk either through a Mall or to climb up from the lower levels of Michigan Avenue, which at night can be a bit scary. The rooms had all the necessities but otherwise felt a bit like a slightly upscale but somewhat dated... More

just finished route 66 and needed a bit of luxury and having stayed in the Conrad Dubai I wasn't disappointed, situated on the golden mile, don't forget to go down the side streets and behind the big malls to get a true taste of downtown Chicago, we went out in the mornings' for breakfast always a good idea to get...

I had an exceptional stay at the Conrad. I was there on business for 3 nights. It's not normal for someone to want to come home to a hotel, but I did. The room was spacious, clean, inviting and "home-y". I always got a great night's rest. The staff is exceptional, especially Jes at the front desk. Always willing to... More

The location of this hotel can't be beat. It's near shopping and restaurants galore. The hotel room was immaculate. The bathrooms are huge, with a soaking tub and nice shower. There is a nice stereo system in the room. The hotel staff seemed slightly impersonal, but I have no real complaints because everything else about this hotel surpassed my expectations.... More

If you like having office workers peering into your room, then this is the hotel for you. While the rooms are well appointed they are not very large, however it is a good location in terms of being next to the mall. If you ask for a room with a view (I'm in a deluxe King) apparently you need to... More

We live in the suburbs of Chicago and my husband had a conference here so I snuck a night out away from the kids to stay with him at this hotel. If you can avoid, avoid the valet. It's expensive, like $65 expensive (maybe it's $60). The rooms are big for a downtown hotel and the beds are very, very... More

Stayed for a combination weekend vacation and midweek conference. This would be a 5 star rating except for elevator entrance to get to the lobby. Only 2 elevators and they are slow. It's not an efficient way to enter the hotel. The hotel was very nice. Good and clean rooms. The water pressure for the showers is like a power... More

The Conrad is in a great location....physically connected to Nordstrom's with a direct route to the Magnificent MIle, it is an ideal hotel for tourists. I had just recently stayed at The Wyndham on wacker drive so in comparison the rooms at Conrad were very very tiny. The bathroom was luxurious but the actual room was uncomfortably small. At check-in,... More

We came to Chicago to sight see for a two day getaway so we needed a hotel close to attractions that did not cost a fortune. We found it in the Conrad. I have always stayed in Marriott's but found the Conrad to be an excellent choice. The parking was convenient, the rooms nice, and the location perfect.
