I travel to Chicago often, but I don't often review the hotels because let's face it - Most Chicago hotels have small rooms, dark hallways and that "musty" building smell.
The Radisson Blue Aqua was NONE of these things. My city-view room actually had a view of the city! The rooms were large and comfortable with a great desk space, VERY comfortable bed with superior linens and love the squishy pillows. The wonderful lighting options in the room were a great benefit. The furnishings were modern without giving an "Ikea modern" vibe. The bathroom was fabulous with a chic glass door walk-in shower that I now depserately want in my own home. :-) There was also great light in the hallways which are lined with fun wall art. Best of all? It was quiet. Peope were coming and going, but the solidly built room ensured those noises didn't impact me.
I arrived early for check-in and they greeted me promptly, they found me a room and even escorted me to the elevators. My room service lunch was delicious and the concierge recommened Asian cuisine was a divine (and delivered!) dinner.
I attended an on-site conference the second day. The food at the conference FAR surpassed that which has been provided at other conference sites (hotels & clubs) in the city. The servers at our conference also far surpassed the typical service. They were attentive, helpful, respectful and friendly.
And when I left something behind? They Fed-Exed it to me next day!
I have a new favorite work hotel and I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting an exciting night on the town - just for fun. They have really done a great job here. Go check them out!
