Exceeded our expectations...Great location with quick access to everything and Great Staff! This property is a little gem, as it exceeded our expectations. We stayed for 3 nights and the location is great, a bit noisy at times, but it is the big City with lots of horns and sirens! Parking is a bit inconvenient as it is 2 blocks... More

This property is ok, the room was big but still I didn't get the same feeling as Marriott. Marriott does a better job on making you feel home. This hotel doesn't even provide hot coffee, and no coffee after 9:30am at all. Weired.

We decided to stay downtown for once instead of driving back home to the suburbs after a night out. This place is very trendy and the interiors have a thoughtful pallet of materials. I wish my house had been designed in this way. One night seemed too short for the experience at the hotel and of course location in River... More

I travel to Chicago very frequently for work, and consistently stay at the Aloft, as it's 1 block from my office. Staff is extremely friendly and accommodating, the amenities are top notch, and a nice value add is that there's a great coffee shop downstairs! Would highly recommend this hotel, I've stayed in many other properties in Chicago, and will... More

Very well located. Very nice ambiance and good facilities. They have Beatrix restaurant right below the hotel. All other restaurants are located near by including fast food joints. Try the jungle theme restaurant . You also have walgreens close by

I stayed here for 1 week for business and it is great hotel, not too large like some hotels where you get lost. Lovely staff and always there to help you anyway they can. The hotel has a great restaurant and bar. We ate out most nights and all restaurants and attractions were within easy walking distance.

We were at the Aloft for several nights in April 2015 while in Chicago for business...and some pleasure. Start with the location: the hotel is a short walk from a Red Line stop on the EL, a short walk to Michigan Avenue, and close to a plethora of wonderful restaurants and clubs. Simply a great location. The hotel was as... More

The hotel is very modern, but good for travelers on a budget. Excellent location to the restaurants and bars. The room had an interesting layout, but it was very clean and comfortable. The food in the lobby was delicious.

Originally I thought nothing could beat our original location at N Rush and Ontario... But this one might depending on what you're in town for... Livelier neighbourhood for sure... Even the lobby was happening... SOCIAL time encouraged (pool, board games, cool seating, bar)... Def for young professionals, not families w young children, we have kids a tiny bit older with...
