Avoid this ripoff! This 'Luxe' hotel is dirty, offers no simple amenities, e.g., bottled water in room, no cooler, parking $75 per day and internet fee of $23. I ordered a Guinness at the bar and got some watered down version which tasted awful. Stay Away!!

Had a really nice visit last week. I think the hotel is emerging from the pandemic as there were lots of little issues that appear to be off. They do not come to the room while you are there (which is just fine). I noted trash cans in the lobby and elevator areas not emptied as well as little scraps of paper all over the carpeting. I think once the pandemic is totally over, they can do an upgrade. This hotel is looking a little "tired." Overall excellent service. Nice outdoor bar area and rooms are still nice. Would certainly go back.

Traveled to Chicago from Milwaukee for a quick weekend getaway and couldn’t have asked for a better spot. We stayed in a classic king room on the 9th floor. The location is perfect, just a couple blocks off Michigan Ave and the Watertower Mall. Check-in was quick and simple, and the lobby is very pretty. Every staff member we encountered was pleasant, kind, and helpful. The room and bathroom were quite spacious and chic. The bed was extremely comfortable and the wifi in the rooms was fast. The minibar fridge was not usable due to covid, when we inquired if it could be plugged back in so we could keep our waters cold, the front desk offered to bring up a separate mini fridge instead, which was brought quickly and much appreciated. Daily housekeeping is available upon request, which we took advantage of while we were out of the room for dinner. It seemed that room service was available, though we did not use it. We had breakfast at the on-site restaurant one morning which was convenient and tasty, though nothing spectacular. The only very very very minor complaint I had was that the hair dryer in the room is a cheap Conair with no nozzle attachments or anything. I would have expected something a little nicer, but I made do. Next time we stay here, I will just remember to bring my own hairdryer. Overall, we enjoyed the hotel, slept well, and will be back next time we are in Chicago.

The staff were very accommodating and honest - much appreciated! The hotel cafe was excellent! We had requested adjoining rooms and they were able to find something for us at short notice. And special thanks to the staff manning the street - very kind and helpful - thank you Ash!

My husband and I stayed at the Sofitel this past week for our anniversary. We had a lovely stay and the staff was very pleasant. Ob at the front desk was very helpful and personable! The room was beautiful and the view over the city was incredible. I highly recommend staying at this hotel whenever you’re in the city. The elevator can only be entered by room key which was nice. The hotel was walking distance to everything we wanted.
