I've stayed here for business, and was quite surprised that for a relatively "no frills" hotel, it was quite Clean, Extremely Comfy Beds, and centrally located! I have no reason to low star it, other than it is not a luxury hotel. It seems to be a safe-bet if you don't want to spend a lot, and are only staying...

We stayed here for a birthday celebration. While we were checking in, James, who was checking us in, provided us with free drinks while he worked to secure our room. He was cordial and polite throughout the experience, and you could tell that he was invested in us having a wonderful birthday celebration. He was even able to provide us...

The hotel is located directly behind the iconic Marina City Towers (two tall condo buildings that look like giant corn on the cob) right on the Chicago river in the middle of town. Walking distance to Michigan Ave. shopping and to near north restaurants and even into the Loop if you are in town for business. Modern stylish décor, comfy...

The Hotel Chicago Downtown, formerly the Sax, formerly the House of Blues, formerly...etc, has struggled to find its niche. Part of the fabulous Marina City complex, the hotel has a perfect River North location on State Street, overlooking the fantastic new Riverwalk. It is surrounded by restaurant and retail choices. It has large, comfortable rooms. Yet over the years, a...

The pickiest traveler will not be disappointed here. Hotel is located steps away from the best Chicago has to offer. Designed in brown black and silver leathers, metallics and brocades. Lobby, guest rooms and hallways are gorgeous. Staff welcomes you starting at the curb. Concierge lounge exceeded expectations. Bathrobe and bath gels give spa experience. Not one thing amiss in...

Loved the modern decorating, great views, friendly staff, and affordable pricing. Good location by the river. Museums, theaters, cafes, and shopping are within walking distance and closer than they appear on maps. Room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The only downside was there is a charge for wifi. However the fee is waived if you join the hotel...

My husband, family, friends, and I were blown away by the incredible customer service we received the weekend of our wedding. We set up a hotel wedding block with Hotel Chicago around 9 months before our wedding. They were there every step of the process. Consistently checking in, communicating how many rooms we had available, fulfilling custom requests for adjoining...

The only issue I had was were billed $62.50 for items they said we ate/drank while in the room, we did eat some popchips but nothing else that they stated. I called and they refunded me right away! Other than this the hotel was very nice, and we had a decent view of the city.

My sister and I only stay here when traveling to Chicago. The staff is unbeatable - Paul, the manager....and Wayne at the front door make you feel super special! Nothing like hugging it out when when left - which is exactly what happened. The room is gorgeous and the water pressure perfect! So much is in walking distance too.... easy...
