“Outdated decor with excellent service.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

I am a member and I go to this club when I'm in town on business trips quite frequently. I go there because its nice to get the type of service they provide and the quality food they serve. The building is extremely stuffy with its lack of outdoor views and fresh air. The dress codes at times can be annoying, but I know that going in so I can't complain.

The club is filled with antiques, historic items and local lore. Its a mecca for professionals who want to impress clients with a tasteful environment. The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms small but stylish and the latest technology is available in each room. There has been considerable effort made to keep up with the times.

If you like to read, there is a onsight 5 star library with old and recent reading materials of all kinds. Newspapers, magazines, novels, children books, etc.

Room Tip: request a room away from the elevators. You can hear it grinding up and down through the walls.

I have stayed here several times on business. I have found all of the staff very helpful and attentive. The rooms are okay but with very small bathrooms. Good location and comfy beds. Free wi-fi is a nice touch.

This is a classic old club, complete with the weekdays dress code (no denim!). The meeting and dining rooms were exquisite but our bedroom was a bit on the not-updated side.

A haven away from the snowy cold windy conditions. Hotel was lovely as was the bar, rooms breakfast area and gym, sauna fitness centre. Some useful hints: check the dress code, Business dress below the 10th floor and bar (no jeans) other than that a beautiful hotel and don't forget to check out the Monet hanging on the 2nd floor near the staircase

Room: clean tidy and with ensuite (shower)

Breakfast: A la Carte or buffet depending on your taste all options to me were just right

Location: right next to the Blue line (45 min via the train) 1 block walk from station 5 minuits or less. 2/3 blocks from lake Michigan avenue, 10 Min cab ride to night-life on rush/division

It isn't worth the membership fee. Very comfortable room and great breakfast. An older refined feel inside lobby and lounge areas. I would stay there again. Walking distance to shopping and restaurants but you can find better deals at surrounding hotels.

Nice place if you live local, are a member or a frequent visitor to Chicago but this isn't for one-time visitors.

Front desk person had no idea how the dvd player in the room worked with the television. He told me to just try different channels...what? Called him back when that didn't work and they had to send maintenance up. Unnecessary hassle.

Wouldn't stay again.

We stayed at the Union League Club for a wedding and found the accommodations to be adequate.The room was a little small but nice. The rest of the hotel could use a little updating, although the ballroom for the wedding reception was the nicest I've ever been to and the reception was superb from start to finish. The bar/restaurant on the 4th floor had good food and was a good value. I didn't care for the service charge that was tacked on to the nightly rate and parking was very expensive, although that is probably standard for this area of the city. The hotel is in a great location. There is a strict dress code and I wish that the reservations clerk had mentioned it so that we could have been prepared for brunch the next day.
