We were in town for a layover to accommodate Amtrak delays and we're really glad we stayed here. We weren't looking for a super lively area- just a nice place to sleep within good walking distance to Union Station and this was perfect. Any staff we encountered were super friendly and helpful, the building was gorgeous, our room was quiet, and we enjoyed our view. We arrived in time for wine hour and there was also coffee in the morning. We look forward to staying here again next time we're in Chicago.

The customer service was fantastic. I called in advance and asked for a fan and they had it in the room when we arrived. We got to the hotel at 9am and wanted to drop our luggage, but we were able to go ahead and check in. The staff was so friendly and helpful. Sent a text asking for an extra blanket and it was delivered in 20 minutes. I’d stay here again for sure!

The hotel was clean. The staff was nice, room was big enough. The hotel felt very upscale. I was not a fan of parking could of used some sort of sign or something showing they are valets for the hotel. I felt like the valets could care less. This was the one place I could feel like needed improvement.

HI fatboyracing, We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed our atmosphere and that our staff was so attentive during your stay! We do apologize for the lack of service you received from the Valet team.

Stayed in Chicago for the weekend after doing business. Great central location. Close to a number of restaurants and sites - many within walking distance. Very comfortable stay, at a hotel with 1st class staff. Only concern, parking was a bit expensive (even self parking a short walk away).

Hi RoadMan27, Thank you for taking the time to share those kind words! We are happy to hear that our property was able to meet your needs and that our staff was of excellent service! I will pass along your kudos with the team. We do try to stay competitive with other hotels in the area for parking but I highly recommend the parking app SpotHero as an alternative for discounted parking rates. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future!

Short mini vacation in mid May.to Chicago with out dog . We liked the cleanliness, the great location (we were able to walk to many, many places)the building was beautiful and our dog liked that they furnished him a nice dog bed.😊. The staff were attentive but any needs had to be requested including towels or other basics (COVID 19 rules). Parts of the hotel were not functioning- again, COVID related. The bathroom was a little scary for us older adults since there was nothing to grab onto in the shower if you slipped- a necessary safety feature no matter how old you are!! We will definitely return to Chicago & The Gray would be our hotel choice!😊
