booked a night for a birthday gift. now that I've spent a night...no need to return. lobby was a "hike" to get to. room was nice, city view was a small view. location was perfect. based on the cost of the room, I think I expected a bit more. limited exposure with staff, check-in and check-out were swift. I agree... More

We have stayed here a number of times and never been disappointed. I find the rooms to be comfortable and quiet, and nicely appointed. The lobby bar is nice and the rooftop is a great place for a quick cocktail on the way to something more interesting. The perfect location is the real reason to go though. My wife loves... More

I really can't say enough good things about this hotel, so I am a bit unsure where to start. First, they allowed us to check in at 11am as our flight was an early arrival. Since it was our anniversary trip, they sent up wine and chocolate covered strawberries for us at no cost. Sweet! We had a few issues... More

Great hotel-- great front desk, newspapers, coffee, nice workout room, connected to a Nordstroms/mall, beautiful terrace restaurant. 15-20 minute walk to Lake Michigan beach via a fabulous stretch of retail. Couldn't have been happier.

Centrally located with large nicely appointed rooms, the Conrad is a good choice for a quick business trip. The outdoor patio is a great place to decompress with a glass of wine after a full day of meetings. Two quick comments - the person who checked me in did not tell me that the mini bar was not stocked, nor... More

I actually reside in Chicago, but decided to stay here for a weekend-in town-get away. The Conrad is a very nice hotel, the staff was cordial as well. I really like that the hotel had an enclosed walk-way that leads directly to Nordstrom's (Michigan Ave.) and the other stores located within the shopping area. The hotel was moderately priced just...

Not very impressive. They charge you a $25 fee for an early check in. The room is ready and they are charging the greedy. The view from some of the rooms is a building with broken walls. And last check out is 12:00. If you go out for breakfast and do not leave a Do Not Disturbed sign. At about... More

The room was clean, the bed was comfy! Very relaxing and our room was quite large. The bathroom was awesome. The lobby was clean and personel was for the most part friendly. Drinks were expensive and I think we were overcharged several times for our drinks. We ordered room service and we were overcharged for our dinner according to the... More

We loved our stay at the Conrad. I booked this hotel as a surprise for my husband's birthday trip to Chicago. We were very pleased with the location (short walk to the Magnificent Mile and the convenience to the Red Line). The rooms were very spacious and quiet. I loved that the bathroom had a separate room for the toilet,... More
