We recently stayed at the University Club. The staff is uniformly friendly and helpful, the clubhouse is beautiful, the food is great, and the athletic facilities are top notch compared with what one usually finds at a hotel. It is a non-tipping club too and that was a nice feature. The University Club has the most unbelievable location both in... More

I stayed here for a conference and had a street facing room on the fourth floor. The room was large with a big screen TV and a king sized bed. Robes were furnished and the temperature controls worked fine, although the air conditioning had been turned off. You can learn a lot from reading the reviews written by others. I... More

The University Club is the best venue I have ever visited for a wedding reception. The decor is awesome! It looks like the interior of a castle. Food is excellent, so is the service! I would recommend anyone who is invited to an event here to attend.

The University Club is in a prime location - walking distance to everything including Millenium Park, Art Institute, Michigan Ave, Water Tower Place, River Cruises, Navy Pier, train station, Lyric Opera House, theater district. A truly beautiful setting and outstanding service. The staff is exceptionally service orientated. A rare treat.

We just returned from my daughter's wedding, which was held at the University Club. About 20 of our family members stayed in their guest rooms; we had their Park Suite, and the bride and groom had the Jr. Suite. The facilities are all new, updated, top shelf. The bathrooms were palatial, with huge, wallk-in showers. The sitting room of our... More

Amazing location. Lovely historic and "old boys club" feel to the architecture and interior spaces which is a welcome change from the identikit modern hotels of today. That said, the actual rooms were very updated and contemporary. We stayed in an interior room and the room was supremely small (barely large enough for two people with 2 carry on size... More

Stayed for a wedding with the family. For a family stay, this is probably not a great choice but for business, great location, great historic relevance - this is an excellent environment. Considering the age of the Club, the rooms are reasonably sized and there wasn't any difficulty fitting a family of 4 into a 2-bed room. The workout facilities... More

I and two of my staff planned to stay in the University Club for three nights each, to coincide with a two-day conference we were holding there in early March. Turns out, a snowstorm in Chicago necessitated an extra day's stay, and a snowstorm back home added yet another day. As many reviewers have noted, this is a club for... More

This is a great old, historic building right off Michigan Avenue, across from the Art Institute of Chicago and lose to everything. For the business traveler, it is first class all the way, but if you are a tourist or bringing a family, you might want to skip this hotel. But for people traveling on business, this is what you...

Amazing property and an even more amazing staff, from the Doorman Louis to the Front Desk team and the houseman. Checked in with Jessica who was able to direct us to a great little restaurant after a long drive. Zaef the houseman was very polite and was able to accommodate any request in a timely manner. We had the Sunday... More
