“Funky taste, but very functional”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

This is not a standard business hotel, but with a funky style, including a huge illuminated kiss mark on my mirror in the bathroom.
I was staying there while at work conference.
Definitely style wasn't so business, but everything worked smoothly - wifi, TV, pressure shower, small gym etc. Also bakery downstairs started from very early in the morning.

So, yes, I enjoy the stay and would be happy to go back there.

My husband and I visited Chicago for 4 days and we loved everything about this hotel. The artwork, staff and music give it a fun vibe but at the same time everyone was very helpful and professional and the hotel was spotless. The location is outstanding-almost everything we wanted to see (Millennium Park, Ohio St. Beach, river tour, restaurants, bars and clubs) was within a 10-minute walk from the hotel . It took less than half an hour on the red line to get to Wrigley and it was easy to get a cab when we needed it. There's also a grocery store across the street and Eataly is less than a block away. Our room was equipped with everything we might need, from plenty of towels to toiletries (and a shower cap which I always forget!) to a blow dryer and iron. The staff were readily available at all hours and very accommodating to our requests. We stopped in the bar downstairs for happy hour and the food and drinks were excellent and reasonably priced. The cafe downstairs has delicious options for a quick breakfast. I highly recommend the maple/bacon doughnut and the trail mix scone! The morning coffee delivery is also a great touch. The spa downstairs is cute and it was spotless when we stopped in one morning. The hot tub can fit about 8 people and the sauna is a decent size. I would definitely stay here again for work or vacation!

Room Tip: We paid extra for the city view room and it was great to wake up every morning and check out the cit...

We saw great reviews for Acme Hotel and chose it over others. We were so glad we did! The atmosphere and décor is fun and trendy! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We loved our room and the decorating style. The coffee shop downstairs was great, too. Book your next stay at the Acme Hotel. You'll love it! :)

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing north and as high up as available. Great views!

This hotel was awsome. Here is why:
Stayed one evening just to see Chicago
Close to red line for the subway from Midway and Ohare
Close to everything fun on the Rivernorth
Fun room to stay in-great bed
Freindly staff

Itinerary-
8:30am- walked to Eataly to have wake up coffee and looked around- check it out-opens up
early
9:45- walked to Sport authority and then went to Potillo hotdogs- opens at 10- go there- it is awsome- forgot street- Michigan or Illinois?
Tooks Illinois Ave and walked 45 minutes down to Navy Peer- did the architure tour on the Chicago River
Walked back up Illinois to Giodonas Pizza-sp?- look left as it's on Rush Street- and then went to Tiffany and Co back on the corner
Shopped for awhile on Michigan
Went back to hotel and went in whirlpool tub in basement
Went out to 3 dots and a dash tiki bar- you must go- drinks to die for
Went to Harry Carey's- the main one on North side
Ended the night at Andy Jazz Bar- great music- $10 to get in

15 of the best hours ever!!

The title of my review says it. The hotel has a very good locatin. The staff is very attentive. The rooms are clean. However, on each of my stays I have ntoed that the sofa in the room is not comfortable for more than 15 minutes and the reading light is sub par. Since I always work a little when traveling, this is a concern. That being said, the beds are comforfable and there are plenty of pillows, towels and robes. The gym is way too small, but you can break a sweat. There can be noise from the neighborhood on the weekend, so be very specific about having a quiet room. All said, they are my first choice when in Chicago.

Room Tip: Be very specific about a quiet room. If you need a rollaway for a second guest, don't let them...

This was an overflow hotel for a convention I was attending, and I was so glad I ended up here. Clean quite rooms with a modern look. Super comfortable beds, friendly staff and they have free wifi - something that many hotels charge for these days.

I alos liked the cute chalkboards on the door for messages and the free coffee delivery in the morning.

I would stay here anytime!

Room Tip: The rooms that have a city view face the street so you do get some street noise.

From the moment you enter, you know this is not your everyday hotel. It is quirky, but fun for someone from the 70’s. Peace sign, heart and bacon (peace, love and bacon) are pictured on the elevator doors. That should tell you something right off! There are blackboards on each room door so you can write messages to the hallway, the nightlight in the bathroom is big back-lit lips on the mirror…. I won’t spoil it any more. Just go if you want some fun in your hotel.

Room Tip: Our room faced the inner courtyard- fun, too. Take a look.
