As a preflight stayover we chose the Renaissance Chicago North Shore Hotel. It was a good choice. It's easy to reach, has free parking and is a good hotel if you don't want to stay in the city center and if you are not afraid for some driving. You reach downtown within ca. 30 minutes via Uber - so it's not too inconvenient. Which is also the same time to reach O'hare The service at reception was super friendly and fast and we got to our room with a king size bed quickly and easily. The room was very well designed and very comfy. We really loved the different, pleasing interior design choices in the room. Very creative. The room was clean and the furniture looked and appeared well maintained. The bathroom was not very big, but also well designed. The glass-barn-doors for the shower were a new interesting impression for me. Only critique point for the stay was the water pressure in the shower - that was way too low, and it took very / too long till warm water was provided. The bed was comfy and provided a good night sleep. Overall it was a good stay in Chicago and can be recommended.

The fact that this is supposed to be an upscale hotel is a joke. The service is horrible and the rooms are terrible. When we arrived we were told they did not have the king room we reserved but instead could only give us a queen. Once in the room we discovered there were no toiletries. There was not even a bar if soap to wash our hands. We called to ask and they said they would bring it and they never did. There was no floor mat and no hairdryer as listed in the amenities. The next day they agreed to move us to a king size room and that room also was missing some toiletries, had a broken hair dryer, and piles of dirt on the floor . The front desk said they would have a supervisor call an they never called. The rooms are very dark with terrible lightening. The sliding glass door on the bathroom is useless. They don't stay close and provide zero privacy in the bathroom. Probably due to Covid the bar was closed and they were not offering any breakfast or food.

This was a very pleasant experience. Melissa at check in was fantastic, great service. Shuttle drivers at fro t door equally pleasant and very helpful. Room was a nice junior suite with a small living area, just perfect to unwind and catch a movie! Room was clean as was the lobby and hallways. Hot tub and pool area were good, water clear and hot tub super; excellent t temperature and jet pressure. Could use some floor resurfacing to make it more in line with a Renassaince brand hotel. The property is a bit dated but can hold its own. The hot tub, not much thought went into its construction. While there is plenty room, it was built for a max of 3 people. Also the bench allows you to sit with Esther approximately 3-4” from your waist line which quite frankly takes from the enjoyment of submerging to at least chest depth and enjoying it fully. If you are alone, you can sit on the 3rd step and submerge to chest depth but you will notice a reduction in jet pressure. I did not rate full bars due to the lack of restaurant service, specifically breakfast. If Sheraton 2 miles away can manage to offer breakfast to Titanium Elite members, why can’t Renassaince? The 750 points instead of breakfast is not an adequate compensation given that breakfast locally will cost upward of $15. Perhaps Renassaince can work out a deal with a local restaurant to provide the breakfast and deliver it prepackaged for those who elect to have it. There is a Chris Ruth’s Steakhouse connected to the property; this I would find in competition with Renassaince for dinner which why it may be beneficial to keep the no meal process going much longer. In conclusion, very nice property, clean and comfortable, good amenities for fitness; and a McDonald’ nearby where you can order a fast all day long!!

We did not receive keys to our room for 5 hours because “the system was down.” (A Hotel employee did let us up to our room at first.) The room is dingy and the decor is 20 years outdated. There was one bar of soap, no bottled water, no food on the concierge floor. When I called to ask, I was told there was no food in the hotel. I said why? The answer was there has been no food since Covid. Hmmm. Many restaurants have struggled on since Covid, able to serve coffee to their guests. The wood floor has weak areas like your foot is going to go through the floor into the next room below. This place would be fine for a motel six. It is not a Renaissance. Do not come here.

I was here for two days for a local wedding. The rooms are fine until you try to go to sleep. The walls are paper thin, and you can hear everything the person next door is saying or watching on television. It probably didnt help that they were having a party until 2 or 3 am. I called 4 times to the hotel and they took an hour to send someone up to say something. After that, they continued talking but at a much lower level for another hour. Giving me very little sleep that night. BTW you could hear everyone in the hallway as well. There are no amenities at the hotel, so no breakfast and they didnt provide any service at all such as cleaning the room during the time we were there.
