Travelers' Choice
ACME Hotel, is Chicago’s original approachable boutique hotel. Located smack dab center, and close to all things Chicago, ACME is the perfect spot for comings and goings, whether for business or play. If you have an eye for design, and dig art, music, and a creative vibe, check us out! ACME is all about making sure your stay reflects YOU, and we want you to have an experience you won’t soon forget. We’ve got The Berkshire Room just off our lobby, one of Chicago’s top-notch cocktail lounges where you’ll find actual locals! Not to mention Bunny Slope Bar, Chicago’s only hot tub bar (not a typo), and WestTown Bakery for sweets and savories. We also offer FREE piping hot Morning Joe® delivery every morning . . . and Free, ridiculously fast WIFI throughout. (None of that, “free in the lobby only” stuff). Also, all rooms boast a state-of-the-art Bowers & Wilkins Hi Fi so you can stream your own jam. Each room comes with its own Amazon Alexa too - so let her do some of the heavy lifting. ACME is what we consider approachable - in more ways than one. The fact is, we want your experience at our downtown Chicago hotel to blow your mind, not your budget.

Nashville, Tennessee37 contributions9 helpful votes
I stayed at Acme for 4 days/3 nights in August 2022. Here are some thoughts on our stay… THE GOOD: - The vibe is super cool. If you’re looking for an Instagram hotel, this is it. We were celebrating our daughter’s 16th bday and she was snapping pics every 5 minutes. - The staff was friendly and helpful. - The location is great for Mag Mile and train access. The area also feels very safe. - Beds were comfortable. - They had a room available when we arrived and allowed early check-in without an extra fee. THE BAD: - There is hardly any counter space in the bathroom, so if you have a lot of cosmetics/toiletries, you have to store the majority outside of the bathroom or shoved in your bag under the counter. - It only has a rainfall shower head, which looks great, but is not very practical for the average person to do more than get the top of their head wet. - The bathroom sink faucet is not the proper size/shape for the sink, so when you wash your hands, water goes everywhere. - Lighting is super dim, so doing your makeup, or anything that requires good lighting, is difficult. Add that to zero counter space and my girls ended up sitting on the floor in front of the full length mirror just to put their faces on. - One of two elevators was broken the entire time we were there so getting up/down sometimes took a really long time. - The walls/doors were thin enough that we could hear people “enjoying themselves” while walking through the hall. This was real fun with our daughter in-tow.

This is a hidden gem in middle of downtown Chicago. Jennifer and Ra took great care of us and upgraded us to a suite for our anniversary. Great views, reasonable rates, and a unique boutique hotel experience. Highly recommend it.

Amazing hotel. Two people at check in were very friendly and accommodating. We had 2 rooms for our party of 6 and they made sure were had rooms on the same floor. We rented a double queen suite and the living room area was very nice. Plenty of seating, 2 mini fridges, a bar sink and a microwave. The windows all opened about 6 inches which was nice because it was cool outside in the mornings. I cracked the window and drank my coffee while listening to the sounds of the city. They deliver a thermos of hot coffee or tea to your room each morning at a time of your choosing. Both mornings of our trip it arrived right on time. Quick list of other things we liked: friendly housekeeping staff who always asked if we needed anything when we saw them in hallway; music playing outside and friendly door greeters at each arrival back to hotel; very comfy beds and pillows; great bar atmosphere and good drinks; location was perfect for getting to river, navy pier and subway station. We would definitely recommend this hotel and we will be back!

The Acme Hotel stay was a wonderful stay. The front desk employee, Shaunte was pleasant, professional, and friendly. She greeted us with a friendly smile and helped us with our questions. The hotel was clean (everything), rooms uniquely decorated. The bed was so comfortable we had to ask what type of bed was in the rooms. The beds are exchanged every 3 mos no matter what. Coffee was delivered to the room if requested at the time slot that you reserve. Hot and delicious! Checking out was easy. Also, the hotel will hold your luggage, bags, etc; tagged and put up in a safe place until you return. You must have the ticket issued to receive your luggage. Just awesome! Val was on it for us. Shaunte, Val and the counsier male was awesome. I apologize that we forgot his name. He was amazing as well. He helped us with our bags when the uber arrived. Prior to that, he was friendly, energetic and takes pride in his job. This hotel is a place that you would want to stay downtown Chicago paying your money. We will return to this hotel next time we are in town. We give it 5 stars! The owners of the hotel takes excellent care of it.

This hotel has a good location but that's about it. There is no housekeeping (which we weren't advised of) so 4 days with no clean towels etc. Don't plan on staying in your room much because it was dark and dungy. The air-conditioning is also super loud. Front desk people were pretty unfriendly. So for location it's good otherwise I'd give it a miss

When we visit Chicago we always stay at ACME. The rooms are clean and the atmosphere is eclectic and fun. Their location is so convenient: the red line stop at Grand is just around the corner, the market is just across the street, along with a Starbucks. The rooms have a mini-fridge so we just hit the market for breakfast items and snacks and only have to eat out for dinner….so convenient. They are also only a few blocks to Michigan Ave, the River Walk, and the Pier…all of which are great activities in Chicago. The staff at ACME is great! Since we arrive by train the the mornings they allow us to register early for our room, which is a super convenience, that way we can get refreshed and don’t have to lug around our bags. It’s like making our arrival day and extra fun day. Thank you to ACME!!!

For the price, the hotel was fine. I appreciated the quirky aesthetic, but felt that service was lacking. Location was great. The coffee delivery in the morning was nice, but I only received it one of two nights I stayed there. There's no room service, and I didn't receive any housekeeping during my stay, which is fine, if there had been more transparency from the hotel upfront about lack of housekeeping.
