The Allerton is a really cool hotel that is very conveniently located just steps from Michigan Avenue. Upon check in the front desk gal was very receptive and made us feel welcome, the guy that brought up our bags could not have been nicer! The room..a corner King is small...very small but still very nice! Now, they give you a coupon for two free drinks in the lobby lounge..this is where they lost us. The bartenders were horrible..not friendly, not receptive..one looked like he wanted to scream "i hate my job and wanna go home"..the other who waited on us, was very snappy..I asked him what the allertini was? (they offer this on the freebie card) he rambled off something without ever looking at me..I said can I substitue a dirty martini for that "no", do you have blue cheese stuffed olive? "no" the free glass of wine offered is house wine..really nasty!! so, I ordered a dirty martini, actually had 2 & they were good, I get my bill and my martini's are more expensive than any prime drink on the menu..i question it, as well as two other couples there were doing with their bill, and he gets a gal from the front desk who tells me I requested "extra vodka" in my drink and that's why he charged me $4.00 more per drink..I argue with her that i did not & point out to her that two other couples are disputing their bar charges..long story short after arguing she takes off the extra $8.00..I pay w/no tip because that's not how you treat guests who are paying GREAT money to stay in your hotel & patronizing YOUR bar. My conclusion of the Allerton is it's a very nice hotel BUT we've been to dozens of others in Chicago that cannot do enough to make you happy..oh, did I mention my husband could take his wine up to our room but I couldn't take my martini up because "you might keep the martini glass"..seriously, that's what this rude bartender said to me..not cool!!! Sorry, Allerton...your bartender blew it for you..WAY too many great Chicago hotels to choose from.
