Came here on business, rooms were a bit pricey, but they were clean and nice. Staff was nice and helpful if you needed a cab. Was able to print boarding passes in lobby, and they held our luggage after check-out.

Rooms are well laid out and very efficient. Excellent location. Lots of restaurants nearby. Never had a chance to try the restaurant/bar but it was very popular as it was always really busy. Loved Our stay here!

It was my first time staying at an Aloft hotel, and I was really impressed with their different take on hotel stay. It had a free pool table in the lobby, a snack area, great music playing in the lobby and a great restaurant. The location was fantastic. The beds and pillows comfortable! The rooms were clean and sleek. Admittedly,... More

I was attending a conference downtown. This location was close and had parking for an additional fee ($60 valet overnight). The room was clean. It was small but not teeny for a downtown room. Arrival with your own vehicle is a bit confusing, you'll want to use the valet if you're checking in yourself. I was in a handicap accessible... More

nice bar downstairs for pre-turning in night cap and a good restaurant also. Rooms are chic and have all the amenities you would want and a VERY friendly staff. It is located in Rover North and very close to Sunda and Roka Akor (very cool asian fusion places.

Booked this hotel for a girls weekend, on arrival we were upgraded to a corner room on the 16th floor with fantastic views of Chicago. The room was very clean and spacious, staff very friendly and helpful, after checking out they kept our luggage until 3pm so time to hit the shops. Lovely restaurant and bar downstairs, although we didn't... More

Stayed here for 5 nights. The check-in process was fast. They had enough staff at the counter to minimize wait times. I requested an early check-in, arrived at 9am on Sunday, and they had a room for me in an hour. The room was small in size but the layout and design minimized this limitation. I wish there was a...

Took the mass transit from the airport (Midway) to a few blocks from the hotel, and walked the remainder couple blocks. It was cold, but by the time I reached the hotel, it was fine.

This hotel really made our stay in Chicago. We were able to walk two blocks to the Red Line subway, walk to many of the restaurants and attractions that were on our "Must See" list. Everyone...from check-in to Check-out....were outstanding. Plenty of space for the four of us, without feeling like we were living on top of each other. I... More

This hotel was meant to be a real treat given I'd just driven half way across the country, and I'd never been to Chicago so a downtown hotel seemed like a good idea. The location is definitely good. However, unfortunately, the noise from the street, and the noise in the hallways from people coming in late at night, people screaming... More
