Chicago was the first place we visited since the pandemic and the Sophy Hyde Park hotel was the best place to restart our travels. The hotel was beautiful and the staff was amazing. Larry at the front desk was awesome. It was also nice to stay in a different part of Chicago. During previous visits I stayed downtown and it was great to see a different side to the city.

Hotel's Favorite
I booked this hotel somewhat last minute while looking for a neighborhood to stay in Chicago, not downtown. This was an amazing hotel, it was beautiful and my experience with all staff was incredible. They were friendly and helpful above and beyond my expectations. I was nervous to stay at a hotel during the COVID-19 pandemic, but the hotel explained the measures they had taken and I felt comfortable throughout. I cannot wait to come back, hopefully post-pandemic, to truly take advantage of all the hotel has to offer.

This is our fifth time staying at the Sophy Hotel. It is impeccably designed, clean and the staff are friendly, pro-active and accommodating which is everything you would want in a customer experience. Hyde Park is a bit south of the City so it may not work for everyone, but if you plan to be in south Chicago, consider this hotel.

This is such a beautiful hotel! So much thought and detail went into making guests feel welcomed. I was a bit nervous as this was my first time traveling solo, but the staff were so helpful and nice, the room was cozy and spacious, and the overall experience was just amazing. I love Hyde Park, and the location was perfect for me. I plan on staying here again in the future!

Hands down the best upscale hotel in the Hyde Park area. It checks every box. Outstanding customer service, elegant rooms, plush beds, first class dining and great ambiance in the lobby. Always a treat to stay here to visit my U Chicago students here when I visit them. Always look forward to staying here the hotel always makes sure my stay is a pleasant one. They really care about their guests which says a lot about their customer service! Five PLUS STARS!!!!!
