“Excellent, convenient location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

Spent two nights at the Silversmith and was very happy with the room and service received. The hotel is super close to Millennium Park and it was very easy to catch public transport to and from the location (including the train to and from the airport). Beds were comfortable and rooms were spacious, clean and tidy. Give Ada's a miss, even though it is convenient there are tastier places to get breakfast.

Stayed March 2013, traveled with friends

Due to illness we were only able to spend one night at the hotel. But, it was great. It was right around the corner from the theatre and shopping at Macy's if time permitted. The room was very nice and comfortable. The bed was the best hotel bed I have experienced and our corner inside room had no noise at night. We had a light dinner and breakfast in Adas restaurant. The food was acceptable and convenient.

Room Tip: Ask for an inside room if you are concerned about the elevated train noise

We arrived somewhat weary from London with pre booked vouchers via an airline site. Although for some reason the booking had not got through to the hotel system the friendly reception staff found us two excellent rooms without any fuss and took it to themselves to sort out any issues with the airline. Top class service.

The lobby staff were also good enough to put up with my 12 year old son practicing on the lobby piano (!) without complaint and were very friendly towards him and definitely made a fan when they offered him chocolate.

Rooms were large and clean and everything worked well, breakfast in Ada's was good. The door men were cheerful and polite and did a great job looking after our many bags.

We'll be back.

Highly recommended.

I had a wonderful 2 day stay at the Silversmith Hotel this past weekend. The Hotel staff is excellent. The location is great. The rooms are very quiet and very comfortable. Great job. My room was near the Elevator and it was completely quiet during the day and at night. The Front Desk Staff, the Bell Staff, and the Car Valet staff were all very friendly and welcoming. I felt like I was a valued guest. I love this Hotel. I will definitely be back next time that I am in Chicago.

Room Tip: My room was facing the back of the Hotel. Very quiet. Very comfortable.

Great location for a downtown experience. Helpful and friendly staff from the time we arrived until we left. Nice clean and quiet rooms. Surprisingly easy to arrive and depart given it is right downtown. Breakfast at the Ada restaurant was lacking.

We spent four nights at the Silversmith during Easter break. The room was spotless, smelled good, and the bed was comfortable. It was spacious and the high ceilings were a plus. The hotel is obviously well managed and very well maintained. All of the employees we came in contact with were extremely helpful and polite. The hotel has an excellent location with an L train stop just steps away from the door. We enjoyed walking from the hotel to many tourist sites including a stroll up Michigan Avenue. There is a large Target store located just around the block, and there are many restaurants and coffee shops close by.

I live to do 2 things... Love the Lord & Travel!!! Prior to April 7th, 2013 I had never heard of the Silversmith Hotel & Suites, as of April 8th, 2013 I will never forget it!!! My wonderful experience began with a very warm reception by two very lovely young ladies at the front desk. A very comfortable, very retro suite further enhanced our stay. The suite was equipped with all the bells & whistles necessary to enjoy a nice quite night indoors. The excellent location gives you the opportunity to enjoy every aspect of the Chicago Loop; including the wonderful River North area...The management of the hotel will go the extra mile to make sure your stay is above and beyond the average travel experience.... FYI if you’re into sweets make sure to try a piece of their wonderful Carrot Cake!!! In honor of Roger Ebert I give the Silversmith 2 THUMBS UP!!!
