“Excellent stay, beautiful hotel, exellent location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

Stayed here for our anniversary, had a "suite location", nice rooms. Breakfast in the restaurant was delicious. You cannot beat the location/price/style ratio. Views are nice and tsaff was excellent. No complaints.

Fab hotel with stylish rooms, delicious room service breakfasts. Perhaps best of all, perfect location on the magnificent mile. Our suite was glamourously outfitted with several TVs, two WCs and the all-important top of the range coffee maker. Fluffy bathrobes and free wifi helped us stay comfortable and on top of work while on holiday.

The Conrad is a very nice hotel; upscale and nicely finished with a very attentive staff. But what really makes the hotel is the location. Where else can you walk out of a hotel lobby and take a elevator down to Nordstroms?! The hotel restaurant is fine for breakfast or a quick lunch but not sure I would do dinner there. But the Conrad is on the Magnificient Mile of Chicago with hundreds of terrific restaurants within walking distance, so that's absolutely not an issue. We were able to get a great rate for this five star hotel which really made for a wonderful weekend. Would go back in a heart beat!

Room Tip: The rooms start on the 6th floor so the upper floors are better to stay away from the street noise.

My stay at the Conrad Chicago ranks very high up on the list of my best-ever hotel stays. I have stayed in hotels on four continents, in several different countries, and this was one of the most enjoyable stays that I have ever enjoyed. Top marks on all counts.

The staff was customer friendly and at the ready to be of assistance. The room was wonderful. Comfy bed. Spacious bath. Plenty of large towels. I especially liked the electrical plug at the desk because we usually have to bring a power cord when we stay in a hotel. But, not at the Conrad in Chicago. The location was within walking distance of water tower place, navy pier. we went to howl at the moon duel piano bar which was within walking distance. oh and the Conrad connects to Nordstrom and the mall there. So shopping was a plenty. Which was great because this was a weekend for mom and daughters. I would definately stay at this place again and would highly recommend it to others.

This review is for a stay in July 2011. I’m just now getting a chance to write it. But write it I must.
It simply does not get any better than the Conrad Chicago. I’ve had the privilege of traveling the globe and can comfortably say I’ve never stayed somewhere that impressed me as much. Service at check-in is not only friendly but quick. The breakfast (staff & food) are absolute knock-outs; you must try the fresh fruit plate, it’s heaping and better than anything I’ve had in the islands. The rooms are fabulous and the pillow menu is a must-try (I recommend Lavender). Trains are right around the corner, if you need them as the hotel is with-in easy walking distance of the Art Institute, Grant Park, Downtown, the waterfront, and The Gold Coast.
I won’t even consider another hotel when I need a place in Chicago. A stay here reminds me of how hotels used to treat their clients and the way they still should. Outstanding!
A last tip; one of the best veggie burgers I have ever had was right across the street from the hotel at a place called Bandera. They have live jazz at dinner, tasty food, and great local beer.

Great location, good sized, clean rooms.
Main gripe is the need to get the lift to ground level or via the shopping mall to get out. Not enough room if a lot of people around.
Would recommend as a business hotel.
