“Convenient and classy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

Friendly hotel with all the services you need. Ideally placed for touring Chicago, an excellent base.
Use the blue line to get to the hotel from O'Hare, much quicker and certainly cheaper than a taxi.
Good restaurant and happy hour with wine and food at around 5pm

Room Tip: Go to 7or 8th floor and avoid being near elevators.

This was a great location in Business District. Older hotel, in very good condition. Standard rooms were a little small. Had a problem with boiler and did not have hot water the last night, but I would probably stay there again. Not a lot of restaurants close by.

Customer Service from a young man by the name of Lanier was above and beyond excellent. Lanier was very pleasant. Helpful in anyway could. The Happy Hour of Free wine was a added bonus. The appetizers during the Happy Hour which is held daily from 5pm-6pm.

There were a lot of good aspects to this hotel: The beds are very comfortable, the staff was friendly, it's in a good location, and it has the good Kimpton touches of the evening wine hour, morning coffee, and nice robes. The rooms were small, but okay. WiFi should be free for everyone, but it's free if one joins the loyalty program. There were two main problems. First, the bathrooms are extremely small. There is very little room to put anything, the tub/shower is very small and the water temperature was hard to adjust, and the towels were small and mostly pretty worn. The other problem is that the rooms aren't very good at keeping out sound. The hotel is dog-friendly, which is great, except for when the dog in the next room starts yapping in the morning.

The location of the hotel was fab. If you are not going all out with the limo or taxi service with the transportation to and from the hotel - this is the hotel to go to.

I took the direct train from Midway international airport to Wells/Washington stop - took about 35 mins, with a 5 mins walk to the hotel. From the hotel, you could walk everywhere - federal bank of Chicago, theaters, Cloud gate. They have free bicycles which you could borrow too [free].

Service was mediocre but consistent of the Kimpton chain. Nothing to WOW about, but nothing to complain either - conducted in a business-like manner. Early check-in was quick and fast. Usual happy hours from 5 to 6pm. Gym was functional.

No issues with noise as others have talked about - had a room on the 16th floor.

If you are looking for consistent service in a well-located area - this is the hotel to be in. If you are looking to spend a lot of time in the hotel with the red carpet service, skip this hotel. I would chose this hotel again as Chicago was too beautiful to be spending that much time in hotels.

Green Features: They did not provide toothpaste and toothbrush. However, you could request for it. I like that coz no point wasting such resources.

I stayed here for a week for work. It's a lovely art deco boutique hotel on Randolph street right near the shops, theatres and CBD. In fact, there is a theatre next door called Cadillac Palace. The room is a bit small but it was perfect for me as it made me feel very cosy and at home. The room is modern, very clean and the bed very comfortable. And in the evenings, I think between 5-6pm the hotel provides a free wine appreciation social drinks for the guests. I really enjoyed my stay here and would come back again.

This has for years been my go-to Chicago hotel - close to my company's offices and convenient for restaurants, etc. Today when I checked in, however, I was stunned to learn that room service had been eliminated. I expect a lack of in-room dining at a Comfort Inn, but not at a hotel of this caliber. As a business traveler I rely heavily on room service, especially for breakfast. Consequently, I will never stay here again. A real shame and, at least as to me, a big mistake on their part.
