I like to see new cities and never know what I get into when booking myself at hotels I've never stayed at ..even Sheratons but I sure got this one right. The staff were very friendly and helpful with all my tourist questions. Especially James..what a sweetheart! The location couldn't be better..steps away from great shopping and nightlife. Updated and very clean..I would visit again!

I was planning a trip to the Shedd Aquarium and did a lot of research on packages at almost every hotel in the area. I ended up booking a room from the 4 Points website for $100. We took the train over from Michigan City, which dropped us off at Millenium Station. It was raining and cool, but we walked across the river along Michigan Avenue and then a block over onto Rush Street. It was amazing at how great of a location this hotel sits. Shopping one block over and restaurants suitable for anyone's appetite nearby. The interior of the hotel was clean and the room was excellent. Our room had a microwave and a mini-fridge. The king-sized bed was extremely comfortable. We bought VIP tickets to the Shedd at the desk for $25 each, which was cheaper than buying them at the Aquarium. We took the CTA bus (one block away) to the Shedd the next morning for $2 a piece. The pool and hot tub were clean and the exercise room had cardio equipment, each with it's own TV. I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone shopping along the Magnificent Mile or visiting the local sights.

Stayed at the Four Points Nov 17-19th, and loved everything about it. I was on a discounted rate for $166 per night, which no other hotel around Michigan Avenue offered. We were in a junior suite, very large room with a king bed and a sofa bed. There was a microwave, mini-fridge, iron, blow dryer, desk with an ergonomic chair, and a large bathroom. There is no on-site restaurant at this time, but room service comes from Lawrys Prime Rib across the street( which we didnt use). However there is a snack shop in the lobby which was convenient. Parking is great, you can actually self park on site for $28( cheaper than most hotels in that area).

One item to note : for security when you are on the lobby elevator, you must insert your room key in a slot every time to be able to push the button for your floor. Very unique, and I felt safe at all times. Hotel is very clean and the front desk staff are very helpful. Will definitely return as I am a frequent visitor to the city and have stayed at various hotels around the area. This one is is priced well and located one block off of Michigan Avenue.

My daughter and I have stayed here 2 years in a row, on our annual trek to Chicago. For starters, the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful--this year a focus of our trip was American Girl for my daughter's birthday, and they arranged for doll beds for her two dolls (at no extra charge). The hotel itself is lovely: the rooms are large, everything is new & clean, the extras are great (a microwave and a usable fridge--not an overpriced snack machine--in every room), and the location is stellar. We love Chicago anyway, but staying at this Four Points right off the Mag Mile is just perfection. We will always stay at this Four Points when visiting Chicago!

Great hotel! Staff is very helpful & friendly. Called the front desk when we couldn't find the restaurant we were going to & they literally walked me there on the phone. The location is awesome, easy access to everything. Would stay there again & again, highly recommend it!

My wife and I recently spent one night at the Four Points. The location of this hotel is 1 block off Michigan (Mag Mile), which makes it very convenient to shop. Another benefit of this location is that it is a ~1 block walk to the bus stop for the museum-bound buses (#146). That was a nice and convenient option for us as we went to the Shedd Aquarium and Field Museum. We also visited the Art Institute (free on Thursday 5-8PM) and conveniently rode a bus down Michigan to it. The transit in Chicago is nice and after driving into town and riding the bus we were glad we didn't drive to our destinations. If you are going to travel on the transit much buy the unlimited day pass. We did not but could have saved money if we had done that. My wife and I both slept better in the bed at the Four Points. They are building a restaurant on the property and currently have room service from Lawry's. We did not use either. We ate that the Grand Lux which was very good and a much better value than we thought it would be (Dinners $10-25) with many options under $15. Their lunch specials also extend to 5PM which we ordered for our dinner. Parking is $28 which seems expensive to us Midwesterners, but after seeing rates at other places this is actually a good value. The rate allowed us to park earlier than check-in time and leave our car in the lot until 6PM on the day of checkout. Overall a very nice hotel and we would definitely come back for another stay.

This hotel was fabulous. We couldn't believe how helpful and nice everyone was. From the front desk to the doorman and bellboy everyone went out of their way to help us and make our trip wonderful. The rooms were large and extremely clean. The location is hard to beat, with shopping and restaurants close by. Can't wait to return to Chicago!!
