“Great Hotel in a Great City to get around!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2005

We planned our last trip to Chicago around the famed "Taste of Chicago" and the 4th of July celebration. The Hard Rock Hotel, on Michigan Avenue, was a welcome, comfortable place to be with kids traveling away from home. The adults were happy with the facility (big spacious rooms, great sized bathrooms for moving our team around, even umbrellas at the front desk when the rain hit and a very courteous and knowledgeable staff for our miriad of questions. The kids loved the views of city life, decorations, food and how quickly we got to our various adventures.) Ease of access to "The Taste", shopping, night spots and all things downtown made for a delightful experience over the week before and after 4th of July. Commuting to the rest of the city was within a few blocks of any train line or short bus trip. We look forward to our next trips during the holiday travel and a definite stop for next summer in Chicago!

we first stayed in the hard rock march 04 and was very impressed. we really enjoyed our stay. when we decided to go back to chicago with our friends this year, we booked the hard rock hotel again. this time was a different story. the room really needed a lick of paint and hardly any water came out of the shower. on our second day, we discovered there was ants everywhere in the room. we asked to be moved and we were, no apology given or no upgrade for the inconvenience. our second room , the shower did not work and again was in bad need of a piant. room service is very slow, ordered breakfast and was waiting 50 minutes for it to be delivered. will definately go to chicago again, but will not stay in the hard rock

We have stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel in Chicago several times and it is a great place. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The building and the rooms are immaculate and beautifully furnished. It is located right where you want to be and I would recommend this hotel to all business and vacation travellers!

I stayed in one of the tower suites this past January. What a wonderful treat it was. The suite has 270 degree views looking up and down Michigan Avenue with views of Millenium Park, the river and Lake Michigan. All of the amenities are first-class and well thought out. The decor, while having a rock'n roll/hip element, are contempory and very comfortable. The service is excellent.

I recently arrived to the BOLD new michigan avenue hotel destination (namely hard rock hotel); and found the experience immediately hip, atmospherically relaxing with simple undertones of elegance, a mindful valet & baggage handler, desk staff aimed to pleased, a vastly knowledgable concierge, rooms that environmentally shifted your mindset from work to pleasure, and a bar/restaurant with healthy and edging cuisine choices ... all in all ... your stay will play as a favorite song! I highly recommend this hotel and experience.
Respectfully,
MJS

I recently visited the Hard Rock Chicago for the first time. I was with a group of 6 middle aged (fun loving) women and we were treated like royalty from the moment we were welcomed by the door staff until the concierge walked us to our car 2 days later. The place is hot, fun and happening - it is palpable when you enter the lobby.

Lot's of locals in the lobby bar, great location on Miracle Mile, outstanding restaurant on premesis, staff that is friendly, funny, and determined to assist you in any way they can. Our room was compact, but larger rooms are available. The bathrooms are fun! We loved it so much that we are going back next month when we see U2 - should be a blast. Extra plus - without a doubt the most comfortable hotel bed I have slept on in a long time.

This hotel is a vacation in itself with the views, very cool and modern rooms, and a bar right in the lobby. But, if you can manage to leave the hotel, it's close to everything!
