I would book this hotel again. It is right in the heart of downtown Chicago, walking distance to the miracle mile, Michigan Avenue, the millennium park, the train to and from Midway, great restaurants, etc. If you get a room looking at the river you will be impressed. Rooms are modern and spacious.

Room Tip: Take a room with a view of the river if you can

Dear CarlosQuesada,

Thank you for staying at Hotel 71 and for the great review! I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and our location in Downtown Chicago, close to the Magnificent Mile, Millennium Park and all of Chicago's great restaurants. We're lucky to have some of the largest guestrooms in Chicago, with some of the best views in the city.

I hope we can welcome you back again soon.

Safe travels,

Steve Shern
General Manager

Rooms were great, really spacious - booked a double rm for 2 of us, so had a large bed each & was great at a reasonable price. Service was great, no issue what so ever.
Location was good - right near the magnificent mile & across from a 711 for great convenience - I would recommend this hotel!

Dear Lolam81,

Thank you very much for your comments. We take guest feedback very seriously. When I looked into the records from your stay, I was surprised to note your complaints about the engineer who was called to look at your TV. We frequently receive very positive comments about him.

I'm sorry this experience did not live up to your expectations. As you can see from our many other positive reviews, I do not think your stay reflected our standard level of service and guest satisfaction. I hope you will give us another chance to win you over. Please feel free to reach out to me directly if you would like to discuss this further.

Sincerely,

Steve Shern
General Manager
