I travel quite a bit. And I usually have my Jack Russell Terrier with me. Aloft Hotels never charge a pet fee and never require deposits for pets. Bonus: They prepare your room for your pet prior to check-in (cute). (At this particular location, an awesome guy named Mike even tracked down poop bags and a portable water bowl for me.)

I stayed at this hotel 14th to 17th June, whilst I was in Chicago and surrounding area on business. I picked this hotel for its central location and close to nightlife and things to do and wasn't disappointed. THe rooms were well appointed and just the right size, with a comfortable bed and a bathroom large enough. Nice tolietries provided The bar and restaurant adjacent to the hotel were very good, and the service excpetional from a team of able, keen and very personable staff, who gave great interaction to a single traveller. The food was lovely, and a great range of beers and wines, they made great cocktails although I didn't try one. Good social and meeting areas on the ground floor reception area, with a snacks/drinks and so on to buy. This is a busy hotel, or at least it was at the weekend, seemd a bit less when I checked out on Monday morning. The reception team were very efficient. I had a great time in Chicago - Thanks all.

There are so many hotels to choose from in Downtown Chicago but I choose this place because I got an great deal. I did some research and knew the hotel would be nice beforehand but the hotel surpassed my expectations. Our flight arrived in the early morning and we took the blue line straight to the hotel. The hotel was conveniently located only a few blocks from the CTA exit. The facade of the hotel is interesting but it doesn't give passerby's a clue to the cool interior. The lobby is a busy and fun place. They have a restaurant on the bottom floor that is top rated on Yelp and fun games to play in the lobby. We were tired and planned on checking our bags and heading out to breakfast but we were given a room early. Such a Godsend when you have been traveling all night. We were greeted at the front desk by Alaina, I loved her friendly face and helpful attitude. She was the first interaction we had in Chicago and her helpful and kind nature really set the tone for the rest of our trip. I highly recommend this hotel. It has a mod vibe, the rooms are comfortable, the staff is amazing, and the location is prime.

I generally try to stay at Marriott properties as they are generally comfortable and I know what to expect. Aloft didn't change this at all. The bed and room were comfortable, albiet small, and the hotel itself was quiet up on the floors with rooms. The ground floor had a restaurant and was busy and colorful. Desk staff were fast and efficient and very pleasant.
