“lake michigan in my room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Wow!! Of course, it never hurts to have a suite. we had room 3201 and 3327: each a suite with an incredible view of Lake Michigan. The hotel is nestled between Rush and Michigan: right where you want to be. All the restaurants and stores just waiting for you to drain the AMEX and fix the economy. The gym is large and complete. It is available 24/7 which is perfect. The restaurant for breakfast serves top quality food but it is a bit claustrophobic with no view at all. What a shame. The concierge team is top notch and there every day until 11 pm. The showers are a bit small and may take a while figure out all the gizmos. However, unlike most hotels that go from ice age to scalding randomly, the water temperature is steady. Service is a priority. The staff may actually be a team of ninjas: never seen yet perfectly efficient. In essence, the Four Seasons Chicago is akin to The Pierre in NYC.

Room Tip: end of the hall suites have incredible views

Dear takethecannoli,

We are very happy you took advantage of the incredible views from your room and appreciate your kind comments about our hotel, restaurant and especially staff. Their ability to deliver quickly and without hesitation is certainly valuable, and they are all smiling at your reference of them as a ‘team of ninjas’.

We appreciate your feedback and look forward to welcoming you back.

Sincerely,
Michele Grosso

We only stayed one night and received a great corporate rate. My review might not be as enthusiastic if we'd paid full fare rather than feeling we got a bargain. That being said, service from the bell staff was excellent when we arrived and our room was very nice. The room decor was typical Four Seasons - nothing special but everything clean and in good shape, lots of room, and a great view to the west. We didn't use room service, the restaurant or other services, so can't comment on them.

If you can get a decent rate, or even if you have to pay rack rate, the location and condition of the hotel can't be beat.

Stayed here with wife and two kids for two nights. Came early and left our bags- they texted me when room was ready (truthfully later than I would have liked 3-3:30) and bags were already brought up. Welcome package had Cubs hats, popcorn, beers, root beers and other goodies! What a welcome! Room was a good size (stayed in executive suite) with a king bed in one room and pull out couch in the other. The view was spectacular. We had a corner room with a view of the city on one side and the lake and beach on another...breathtaking. Great bathroom with separate glass opaque door for shower and toilet. Knowing we had kids, every night there were sweets and treats waiting for them in the room. The fitness center was good with plenty of cardio, some weights, benches and cables. The pool area from the movie Home Alone was really nice. The locker rooms were also very nice. Location was fabulous as we were across the street from Oak street beach, off the Michigan shopping mile and Rush street shopping. Two Starbucks within a couple of blocks too! Great stay!

After a long day of travel it was such a pleasure to be pampered by the staff at the Four Seasons. No small detail is overlooked. Dining was superb and our children were able to eat breakfast at 10 pm! Great security too. Special thanks to Kirsty at the front desk for her assistance with our late evening check in!

Room Tip: We had an amazing lake view room. If you plan to watch lots of movies be sure to request the specia...

The hotel was beautiful and our room had stunning views of the Chicago skyline. Service was great as they always wanted to "serve" you, making quick arrangements and little gifts each day. Perhaps the best Four Seasons we have been to. The entire experience was great and if visiting please use the concierge rexxomendistion for restaurants. Enquire about the Italian restaurant which imports its produce from Italy. The food is phenomenal. Only complaint is that the gym pool is a bit small :)

Let me start off by saying WOW...the Four Seasons blew my mind. From the moment I drove up I was offered helping hands, welcoming smiles, and assistance for just about everything. My flight got in before noon and I was given access to my room much earlier than check-in time - a huge plus because I was so tired. Room service was spot on and everything I ordered (from drinks to breakfast to snacks) arrived at the right temperature and exactly on time (like down to the minute, never late).

The rooms are okay...nothing fabulous but very comfortable and clean. I booked the hotel with the "sadness" of knowing there was only 1 sink, but honestly I hardly missed the second sink or separate tub/shower during my stay. Suffice it to say, this hotel is 5 stars because of the SERVICE. Everyone - and I mean everyone - treated me like I was part of the family.

I have to give recognition to my waiter in Allium, Russell, who for 2 nights in a row gave us superb treatment. We planned to visit Allium only once during the trip, but we returned the following night (and stayed 4 hours!) because of Russell and the rest of the wait staff who provided exemplary service to us. The food was delicious, the drinks were out of this world, and the atmosphere was sophisticated yet comfortable. Thinking about the trip, I'd say one thing we will miss quite a bit is going out to eat and not having Russell as our waiter. Yes Four Seasons - he was that great.

This trip to Chicago made me fall in love with the city. I will return soon...and will always treasure the Four Seasons. Stay here if you can, you will not be disappointed.

This is a top spot in Chicago, the bellmen are professional and welcoming, the front desk is generous with kindness, enthusiasm and always helpful. The rooms are clean, luxuriously appointed and the views with window seats are a treat. The room service could be improved but the staff goes above and beyond to right any concerns...
Our children are always welcomed by name and feel special, this is very special and appreciated.
