Positive Reviews

It’s Magnificent.

The hotel is located on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile where many shopping, dinning and nightlife options can be found a short walk away. Guests point out that the hotel’s location gives them easy access to most of the city’s sights.

Shining Star(bucks).

Guests note that the hotel’s on-site Starbucks was a welcome bonus. The convenient location makes it easy to grab a quick morning coffee and pastry before heading out for the day.

A luxury swim.

Before the property was a hotel, it was home to a prestigious athletic club that had luxurious sporting facilities. Among these was a swimming pool that the hotel has maintained since taking over. The indoor pool is heated making it perfect all year round

Negative Reviews

Painful parking price.

The hotel’s price for parking and valet services was alarming high according to guests. Downtown Chicago is known for high parking prices; however, there are some cheaper overnight parking alternatives nearby.

Lots of lines.

Guests state that several areas of the hotels had a long line that required them to wait. The front desk was very slow in dealing with customers and checking-in guests according to visitors while the concierge and Starbucks can also see long lines at time

Elevator takes it time.

The hotel has two towers, a 42-storey building and 28-storey building, which means using the elevator is a necessity. Guests point out that the elevators servicing the buildings are slow and using them can be a frustrating experience.
