It would almost be a five star review but some services and amenities are not available due to COVID. The restaurant is really good but my steak tasted burnt but everything else was perfect and tasty. I also didn’t care for the red wine sauce. Thank goodness they didn’t put it on the steak. The staff are all super friendly and welcoming and were the best part of my stay. Top notch. The rooms don’t have drawers so you can’t unpack since there are not enough hangers either. I had to live out of my suitcase for three days which was uncomfortable. Otherwise the room are fantastic. The beds are cozy and comfortable. The bathroom is amazing.

Dear carlapearsey, We appreciate your staying and your review. While I'm disappointed about not receiving "5" stars because of required and needed covid considerations, I'm hopeful that a return visit from you will happen in the future and we'll have that opportunity to earn again. Nonetheless, thanks for your allowing us the chance to service you and hope to have you back soon. Best,

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.

The lobby is beautiful is comfy, the jazz music makes for a wonderful and relaxing environment. The bed was so comfortable and I absolutely LOVE the record player along with the selection of vinyl records in the room. The Sophy is my new favorite hotel to stay in when I come visit my family in Chicago.

I highly recommend the Sophy- Hyde Park. Welcoming staff, cozy, tranquil, clean, and well-appointed modern rooms. There is even a turntable to play the Blues/Jazz records in the room. The Sophy is ideally located, with several restaurants and coffee shops nearby. The hotel also has an excellent restaurant and a swanky bar. The experience of staying at the Sophy was utterly remarkable. I plan to stay here from now on when I am in town for business or leisure.

Absolutely loved this hotel. Visiting family in Hyde Park and family member mentioned how "cool" the hotel/restaurant looked. We were not disappointed. Interesting artwork throughout, lovely and unique decor both in the lobby (and elevator) and the room. High quality bedsheets and bathroom in room was gorgeous. Responsive and nice employees...and a lovely family breakfast in the restaurant with great food and service. Loved the Chicago themed books in restaurant and room. Have recommended to everyone and we will definitely be back.
