We loved the location, but the room was very small. The bathroom floor was not clean around the toilet, and there were stains on the walls of the room. The beds were hard, and there was no refrigerator, or microwave. I reserved the room through a discount site, and was glad for that. I would of been very upset had... More

Great classic hotel, great service, nice room, great location! My friend and I took our two teen girls to Chicago for a long weekend to see One Direction: boy band. The room was a junior suite which overlooked the lake and Buckingham Fountain. The room was nice, wished there was a micro wave in the room. The hotel is smoke... More

Stayed labor day weekend. I booked executive floor and was given room on 23 with lake view. 2 queen beds and 2 bathrooms. This hotel is like staying in a museum. Photos of historical figures and events of the 20th century are displayed both on the 24th floor and off the lobby. It was great to see the details in... More

Nice looking hotel from the outside and an excellent location for events at Soldier Field. Initial impression Parking: Don't plan on self parking - 500 spaces for 1800 rooms. We arrived before check-in time and the self-parking ramp was closed off, so valet only. Somehow the parking staff was moving the "parking lot full" sign for a few cars to... More

I have been going to Chicago for meetings every year for the last ten years around June and have stayed in this Hilton many times. This is a big hotel with many rooms. The rooms are so worn out and are badly in need of renovation. The air conditioning is loud and noisy and the phone jacks fall out from... More

Whether you are traveling for business, pleasure or just want a quick get away, the Chicago Hilton is conveniently located, has a friendly, efficient staff and offers a lot of amenities for a fraction of what other hotels offer. I highly recommend a stay at the Chicago Hilton.

Stayed a few nights at this old but well maintained icon in Chicago. Has the traditional elegance. As a convention hotel, it has some excellent rooms but some can be a challenge to find. Staff were outstanding. I had a room on the concierge level. The breakfast offerings in the concierge lounge were not as good as I would have... More

I have to say that this was the worst hotel experience I have ever had. This was touted as a great hotel. The only thing good about it was its location. We found a gigantic cockroach in room and the staff was gracious and moved us but then we were totally ignored by housekeeping. They forgot our room and the... More

This hotel has a lot of history. When it was originally built it was the largest hotel in the world at 3,000 rooms. I think that this hotel has a lot of charm and it must be considered when writing a review. I don't normally stay at big "box" hotels, but I was on a business trip and this was... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Classic meets cool as Hilton Chicago embarks upon a $150 million renovation in celebration of our 85th birthday. The fresh, new vibe inspired by traditional, design rich elements pulls its inspiration from the hotel’s original architecture and intertwines a dynamic and contemporary spin. With the renovation underway, the hotel has already introduced over 400 new guest rooms, 13 new hospitality suites, a new technologically versatile Grab & Go – SNAX and a new restaurant with private dining space and bar – 720 South Bar & Grill. The new contemporary guestrooms have been cultivated with ornamental lacquer finishes, soft leather and rich, bronze wood detailing accented by a cool color palette of velvet and silk textured accents. Guestroom media capabilities include a 37 inch flat screen television, in room touch concierge panel, HCN Navigator computer and wireless and wired internet access. Following a day exploring Chicago, decompress at the largest Chicago hotel athletic club with running track, take a dip in our indoor pool facility or catch some rays on our sundeck during the spring and summer months.Located on Michigan Avenue in the South Loop, the Hilton Chicago is 1.6 miles to McCormick Place, along the Shuttle Route to McCormick Place and the first stop on the returning route from the convention center. Directly across the street from Grant Park and walking distance to Millennium Park, Buckingham Fountain, Shedd Aquarium, Field Museum, Adler Planetarium, Lake Michigan, Buddy Guy’s Legends, South Loop dining and art galleries, Museum of Contemporary Photography, The “Loop” – Chicago’s Financial district, State Street Shopping, Soldier Field as well as two short “L” stops to Chinatown. ... more   less
