This is a sophisticated French hotel with amazing architecture. Near the intersection of State and Rush Street and only a couple of blocks from busy night life on Rush Street, fantastic shopping on Michigan Avenue (northern part) and two blocks from the Chicago station of the Red Line. The lobby is beautifully designed. The hotel staff are all friendly and...

For the past several years, our Chicago “home away from home” is the Sofitel Chicago. We drive to Chicago a few times a year simply for our “big city fix” that usually includes the Symphony, art galleries, Art Institute, concerts, theater, walking along Michigan Lake shore, and our favorite restaurants. The location of the Sofitel is tucked into a safe,...

I am currently sitting in the lobby, I had called twice prior for an early check in. I get here and they inform me that my specific room isn't available after having been flying since 4:30am, but if I wanted to pay 20-30 dollars extra a night for the SAME room on a higher floor, they had 5 available. I...

Location is awesome for shopping and walking. Staff is great. The rooms are clean and nice size. Cleaning staff is excellent. Bar waitress was awful but the bartenders and the scene is great. We had to wait a while to get seated for breakfast, so skip the "free" breakfast and find somewhere else in town. Great place to rest your...

Excellent service and personal attention. Comfortable bar and great restaurant. Very convenient location. We have stayed at the Sofitel before and will do so again. It was very nice to be remembered upon our return.

We found a very good deal coming here in January. I was surprised, but maybe no one wants to go to Chicago in January on a weekend or outside of business reasons. We never walked more than 10 minutes from anything. Right in the middle of a lovely shopping district. The staff were very friendly. The cleaning staff even straightened...

Beautiful hotel! My wife and I had a date night a decided to stay at the Sofitel. The hotel is beautiful and for the rich at heart and pocket! It has all the elements of a boutique hotel and staff pays close attention to detail. The rooms are well appointed with top of the line furnishings. The rooms are somewhat...

We stayed at the Sofitel Chicago Water Tower 12/27-12/29 to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. When we checked in we were told as Platinum members we were going to get an upgrade to a junior suite. We were thrilled but when we open the door to our suite on the 32nd floor we were blown away to find out we...

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighborhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
