“The place to be”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

I was in Chicago in July for business and I enjoyed this hotel. It is on the perfect place, along the rive, on the beginning of magnificient mile and close to the lake and Michigan avenue.
You have spacious room with a fabulous view on the Carbone and Carbide building (the champaign form).
The bed is a big king size and exceptional pillows with modern sofa, desk, ironing desk, spacious bathroom. The reception and the service is friendly.
The quality price is very correct for the hotel and it place

Location, location, location.... that's what we were thinking of when we booked this hotel for our first trip to Chicago. And it definately did not disappoint! The room we had was huge...so was the bathroom. The location indeed turned out to be in the center of where we wanted to be :-)
We walked to the sights every day and had a great time. I can recommend the hotel to everyone going to Chicago. Staff was very helpfull and answeres any (yeah really) question we had. Only issue we had was a group of people getting in really late/early, shouting and banging the doors a lot. After checking with reception, they addressed the issue and we still had a good nights sleep.

The hotel was amazing as well as the staff who treated us over and above the call of duty. They upgraded our room for no charge, and were extremely helpful - especially Mike. Our room was huge! and the water view was amazing. I could find my bf every morning sitting watching the view with his coffee. The location was perfect - we walked almost every where! If we go to Chicago again, we wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Room Tip: Choose a river view - it is more expensive but really worth it. The city view looks at the back of...

This hotel is in the "dead centre of the dead centre", as the front desk person said!
An excellent stay for one week, reasonably priced for what it offered. Above all, the location was within walking distance of the lake, river, beautiful architecture and other sights within the city of Chicago. In particular, we enjoyed the spectacular view from the room - corner aspect meant we could see the city and the river from the 28th floor!

We could visit sights on foot, but it was also well connected to bus and train.
The hotel offered free wifi in the room, it was always well stocked with coffee/tea maker. Good quality bedding, linen and towels. Pleasant lobby area. Did not sample the restaurant so cannot comment on their service. Overall, we thought we had made a very good choice.

Housekeeping tended to forget to replace essential items, eg hand towels, loo paper! But place was clean. And no swimming pool, but a good gym.

Room Tip: Ask for river view or, to save money, city view, and if you are lucky to get a corner room you will...

I loved the location of the Hotel 71 as well as the large rooms with refrigerator and Green Mt. coffee. Everthing looked brand new and the people could not have been more helpful and kind.
Would stay there again. NIce bar and restuarant as well.

Great Hotel, Great location for the centre of Chicago, right on the river, fantastic river view room, not far from Navy Pier and the Beaches. Our room was on the 35th Floor, the views were fantastic, especially at night! The bedroom was large with a window right across the end wall of the room, the large bed was very, very comfortable. Room maid was lovely.

Room Tip: Book a river view room, well worth the extra money, the views are fantastic, we had a room on the 35...

my stay at Hotel 71 was perfect. The hotel is right in the middle of downtown Chicago, walking distance to everything, shopping, eating, clubs, and bars. It was all there. The staff was exceptional, and to top it off the (staff) remembered my name. First class service all around. I will always make my stay at HOTEL 71 when visiting Chicago.
