First time in Chicago, and stayed at EMC2 2 weeks after they opened. Check in/out was smooth, and the staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. Loved the decor and art pieces throughout; particularly in the bar/restaurant. Comfortable bed.
Bar had some interesting mixed drinks which we enjoyed sampling. Ate at The Albert. Presentation was nice, and great flavours. Waitress also brought out a chocolate dessert at the end... it was a decadent piece of heaven.
If you request toothpaste or other items delivered to your room, there is a robot that will be more than willing to oblige.
EMC2 is close to Michigan Ave, with lots to see and do nearby.
Overall, had a great stay.

This hotel has been open only a short time so be prepared for a few little kinks. Overall great stay. They even have a robot which comes to your room. Extremely friendly staff; great location; beautifully decorated rooms.

Room tip: get a room overlooking the street

The hotel is very modern looking. You get colored pencils and drawing paper. The shower was a walk in with a nice copper exposed plumbing. I wish we would have noticed the copper speaker system for our phones sooner. Dwayne was especially friendly and very helpful.

Room tip: Only stayed once we were impressed with the look.

I am a big fan of Marriott Autograph hotels so decided to stay at EMC2 Hotel when I was in Chicago for a conference rather than the large hotel where the conference was being held. The EMC2 was a great choice! I stayed for three nights and throughout my stay, I felt welcomed by the staff. The hotel is very modern and new so the room had all needed plugs in convenient locations for cell phones and computers. There was even "Alexa" device in the room. The location is convenient to lots of Chicago sites but on a street that was not too busy so very quiet at night! I highly recommend this small, boutique style hotel and hope to return when I next visit Chicago!

Stayed at EMC2 as part of a group meeting and we found out the hotel had been open about a month. The hotel was in excellent condition and very clean. All of the hotel staff were very courteous and friendly. A special thanks to Dominique and Emily for their service in the meeting room. The service in the meeting room and the bar was excellent. We found everyone to be very knowledgeable as well.

The room are not large but the space was utilized very well. There is no lounging chair or sofa to use but personally I never do. There was ample drawer and hanging space. The desk was large and the chair was comfortable. The bed was very comfortable, firm yet with a pillow top. A clothes steamer is provided but an iron and ironing board can be requested.

The bathroom has a large enclosed shower with a rain head and a wand head. The vanity is well lit and has good counter space.

Overall a big bonus is that the room is well wired for plugging in and charging devices. There are outlets and two USB charging ports on both sides of the bed, and on the desk and additional USB ports in the alarm clock.

Of course the location is excellent as well, with easy walking access to Michigan Avenue and Navy Pier. Lots of dining and drinking establishments are close. We did enjoy a drink on the Ivy Hotel's roof top bar across the street for a nice change.

Overall the EMC2 is an excellent new gem.
