I have been using the Renaissance North Shore for many years now and have always found the hotel first rate. The refurbishment has been carried out sympathetically and not changed the feel of the hotel too much. The rooms are well equipped and the beds and pillows very comfortable. The staff in the bar and restaurant are extremely courteous, and... More

My family stayed one Wednesday night after a fun filled day at Great America. Our room was nice and clean. The beds & pillows were very comfy! Since we stayed on the 10th floor, we had access to the Club Lounge. Too cool! There, we met Robert. He was the "man in charge" of the Club Lounge Wednesday night and... More

Upon arrival the clerk Adam was nice and knowledgeable. I unpacked and dialed "0" to ask a question. I hear upon answering "they killin me today, UGH, hello". Someone doesn't like their job obviously. When returning from dinner I get ready for bed around 9:45pm. Pull comforter back to find STAINS on middle pillow and all over the comforter. Plus... More

Dear KSpalding 33, Please accept my sincere apologies for this unacceptable experience. As you can see from the previous reviews posted on this site, this is not a common occurance and I am appalled that it happened to you. It is my understanding that we have already refunded that night's room charges to you, after you brought this situation to... More

This hotel doesn't look like much from the outside, but the interior is completely stunning. It has obviously been renovated recently, and every surface is impeccably clean. My 10-year-old daughter was very intrigued by the art-design of the lobby, and that design carried into the corridors and rooms as well. The rooms had some of the most comfortable beds I... More

Just returned from my family reunion in Chicago, we stayed 3 nights. Lovely accommodations, bed was very comfortable. The room was cleaned everyday, parking was easy (no fee), wi-fi. It's a bit far from the city but not too bad, there was a bit of traffic to and from.
