Very modern hotel. No pool
Some may not like the smaller rooms (especially baths) but this is a very nice boutique hotel. They have done an excellent job of refurbishing a grand old building and the ambience captures the imagination. We loved it and would stay again for the good rate we got through booking.com No coffee machines and no coffee in lobby, but a coffee shop on the corner that was open at 5am.
no free coffee
Located right in the Loop of Chicago, this hotel is only 2 blocks from the Blue Line train from the airport. Free WiFi if you are a Kimpton Rewards member (or if you sign up during your stay). Free wine social hour every night from 5-6pm. You also get a minibar credit if you are a rewards member before you check in. The front entrance was a little odd - the lobby is up on the floor above and not well marked. The view out the window in my room was a brick wall.
I arrived early morning and was so glad to be checked in and didn't have to wait until mid afternoon. The cleanliness of the hotel was great. The staff was most accommodating. The on site restaurants were very good.
The staff was rude and disrespectful. The staff.
The 5:00 PM wine hour and the interesting decor. Most of the furniture in the lobby was cool looking but not comfortable to sit on.
Close to the El; convenient
location (1) the fact we provided them a different credit card to charge my bill and they said they were good and then I get my statement and they charged the original card after they said it wouldn't be charged. (2) the lines to check out were long and it took us over 20 minutes to just check out. (3) we were not made aware of the wine hour when everyone else we spoke to was. Overall experience was not the best and the purpose of our visit was to find location venues for an upcominng tradeshow - I think if we would have made them aware we would have been treated much better.
The room was clean and interesting and the hotel well situated in the heart of things. Concierges were particularly accomodating. The rooftop lounge- to which guests get priority access seemed 'the' place to be at night The business centre ( internet access and printers) was painfully frigid and the computers not user friendly.
One of the best hotels in Chicago. Ideal location to everything in the city, wonderful staff and service, Roof Top Bar is excellent. Overall best hotel experience I've had in Chicago.
great location, service, & facility
The fridge didn't work so the brought up a dented scratched fridge and set it in the middle of the room. The room was not clean. No hospitality. Way over priced!!!!
I couldn't reccommend this hotel enough. The staff are friendly and helpful, the location is cental to shops and restaurants, the hotel itself is very trendy while the rooms are very welcoming. And you get a warm cookie upon arrival - what more could you want! The "nature" sounds that are piped into the corridors - nice touch, but they woke me every morning!
beautiful room, great amenities, very clean and modern some confusion at the front desk when checking in but it seemed to only be us
The room was very comfortable, pretty and sexy:) I loved the skybar, and the gym. My only concern was the noise factor from the train and a clock that kept going off outside.
Great location to everything in the city! You can walk to the Riverwalk which has so many things to do! very clean hotel and staff is so so accommodating and welcoming! The bed was very uncomfortable! Had a huge dip in the middle of the mattress! Other than that no complaints
Extremely convenient for getting to the Chicago Theatre.
Quite pleasant and well situated.
Rooms were big and spacious, on state street and walking distance to Michigan Avenue and very popular for their restaurants. Housekeeping were take time to clean the rooms, I would go out from morning and come back and the room was still not cleaned.
Free breakfast in the morning. The eggs were questionable though. My toilet didn't work.
Having managed a hotel myself previously, I was pleased with how friendly, helpful, and quick the staff were in their attention to guests. Very clean and welcoming.
I like the location the best. Breakfast was ok but maybe offer more choices. Room had a mold smell and door locks were very loud when closing.
Great location, nice room, beautiful bathroom, comfortable beds, steps from the orange line, State St. and Michigan Ave., Theatres, and museums. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. Great rice view. Libby music was a bit loud, but the younger crow probably would think that was great!
Location, bedding, room decor. Wasn't notified of renovations by kayak nor Marriott, when I told the front desk this, I was told I should do my own research to make sure hotel isn't being renovated. Then the workers started a half hour earlier than I was told on Sunday morning, and when I called the front desk, nothing was done about it. They were constantly drilling directly above our room. I was given the wrong room and wasn't offered a switch when the correct room became available, and I left an item there after checking out and called two hours later and the item had gone missing from the room. When I called the customer care line, the hotel called back to apologize and did not offer anything to rectify the situation. Terrible stay, will not be booking there ever again.
Elevators require key each time to go up stairs
Great staff, good location. Restaurant is wonderful. Small room, older hotel/rooms, bed not so comfortable, no in room eats other than water/coffee. Definitely over priced.
ALL staff that we incountered from valet to bellman house keeping and front desk were all very friendly and helpful. Having worked in the hotel industry it was easy to spot a top notch beautiful hotel with an amazing staff. Toilet was loose or unattached to the bathroom floor but still functioned properly.
We stayed here with our two older children (age 16 & 20) over July 4 weekend; an incredibly busy weekend for the city but this was an oasis of luxury. Recently renovated, hotel features a beautiful artistic lobby, excellent coffee/sandwich bar in lobby, lounging areas with couches, restaurant, bar. Rooms are deluxe, very comfortable beds, modern bathrooms, with gorgeous views of the city and nearby Chicago river.
Loved all the old architectural features. The rooms were small but the architecture, view, location and excellent air conditioning made up for the size. My suggestion is to add a quiet seating area near the stairs and elevators on each floor so that guests that awaken early can read and have coffee while a child or partner sleeps. Joan
Warm, accommodating staff. Great location. Quaint, historic building. The hotel was more than adequate for our needs, but guests should not expect huge rooms.
The building, itself, is a renovated office building across from Macy's on State St. The location is ideal for sight seeing in the Loop. It's unique. A lot of art deco trim. It's nicely decorated, the staff is pleasant. They serve complimentary wine at 5 p.m. It's boutique hotel, not a monster one. The rooms are small.
We like the intimacy of the hotel. The staff made us feel welcome. The location is walking distance from theaters, shopping, lake front. Parking is very expensive: tip - 3 blocks west of the hotel is public parking lot and we paid $15 for the whole weekend.
It was a beautiful hotel and a great experience valet parking price
Staff was very friendly and very helpful. Rooms were clean and very nice. Only complaint was elevator on Sunday morning. Most people are trying to leave and the maid staff had most cars filled with there carts. Maybe staging a cart on every floor would help that congestion. Otherwise it was a great place to stay.
I had an excellent room with a view of both State and Washington Streets and Millenium Park!
Beautiful; FANTASTIC service provided by all areas; clean Mattresses were hard
I liked the location and the quite comfort of the room. I liked the variety of contents in the minibar, even though I didn't actually eat but one thing. My room was a little noisy, but I just wore earplugs and that worked out for the most part.
Staff were amazing! They took care of all the details with great courtesy. The room was beautiful, the bed was super comfortable and everything was very clean. The Atwood Cafe food was delicious, and they modified reservations for us without a fuss. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to family and friends.
Desk staff quite friendly and helpful. Everything classy and elegant. Umbrella iin closet was a nice tough. Didn't patronize the Atrwood? Restaurant although attractive ambience, Prices were prohibitive. Cup of cofffee: #$4.00, Eggs bENEDICT: $15.00 Fugget about it.
It's in the financial district downtown, the only con is location, it's very close to wills tower, millennium park, etc Rooms are extremely small, you can barely move around the bed, the bathroom as close to no space for putting your makeup or curling iron etc. the noise level is bad, at 03:00am Sunday night early Monday morning some girl was screaming and shouting on the phone, telling her friend or family to come get her. Unacceptable this went on for at least 15 minutes, I wanted to call security on her.
The bed was so comfortable! The staff was very friendly and helpful. They took pity on this poor traveler who arrived at 7:30am and have me a room as early a they cold, offering to call me as soon as one was ready. I was able to check in a few hours earlier than my 4pm check in and it was very much appreciated. The bar was lovely, and I loved all the little cozy areas around the main floor to enjoy a drink. The bartender made a very good Bloody Mary and learned I liked olives and always gave me extra.
They gave me a bigger room when they found out it was my birthday. The room is nice. The lobby is spectacular. I could have spent a day relaxing in the Living Room. No problems really. Not much of a view.
We enjoyed the location We didn't like the initial room. It smelled terrible and was tiny. The bathroom door was an inch from the toilet when it opened and there was no room to put our bags.
Clean room, with plenty of supplies Small room, worked for a one night business stay, but wouldn't have worked for a longer stay.
1) Walls were so thin, we could hear neighbors talking on phone or to each other. 2) The sheets/bedding were like sand paper. I am not spoiled, so believe me when I say, that for a hotel of this price, they could have at least used a better quality of bedding. 3) The design of the hotel (rooms and common areas) is "tacky modern" -- Not sure who thought this looked work? 4) In short, spend your $250 else where and get a much better experience. On a scale from 1 to 10, I would give this stay a 5.
Everything was in working order, staff was super friendly & professional. From the valet to the concierge to the bartender, they all made us feel taken care of! They asked the reason for our stay & we said it was our friends bday. They sent up a bottle of wine & a dessert for the bday girl. I was asked whether I wanted my receipt printed or emailed and I said emailed. I haven't received it so idk what my bill is yet :-/
The air was not working and room was stifling hot. Water was not replenished during day and I had lAte checkout
I loved our stay. So chic with a cool, modern, vibe. My kinda place. As a city girl, I appreciated the slanted bathtub that fully covered my body. It was nice to take a bath. Being on the inside of the courtyard was perfect for light coverage and news coverage. The bed was super comfortable and the room, no small, was hip and wonderful. We stayed for New Years Eve and just walked to all the festivities. It was perfect.! If people were loud, or had more than 5 people in a room, you could hear them through the wall clearly. You can also hear clearly outside the door. Also, the plumbing makes for great water pressure, but the downside is that you can hear loud plumbing through the walls when someone runs a bath or shower above you.
Friendly staff Comfortable beds and rooms Convenient location Expensive wifi Expensive in-room dining
The ambiance of the hotel was fabulous ! Room was large and comfortable. .
Beautiful hotel with a great location. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I expected more for the price. We were upgraded when we checked in, which gave us a larger room. The bar in the front lobby was extremely expensive, had it not been so overpriced we would have spent more time there.
The overall experience was great - facilities, location and staff were wonderful The corner lounge was strange in terms of food offerings, everyone shows up for breakfast expecting to find dry cereal, bananas or a pop tart. Get rid of the candy and party mix and offer a minimal continental breakfast.
The view and the equipment of the hotel No breakfast provided
Central location Nice view Quiet room
Loved the staff at the Hyatt! They were amazingly helpful, especially Ariana who was there no matter what we needed. From the valets to the housekeepers they were so wonderful. The business center was very helpful and the latte's were delicious. The room was really quite loud. The air conditioner would kick on and wake me up several times a night. We were also close to the elevator (which I know is unavoidable) and could hear word for word the conversations in the hallway. This made for a rough night's sleep.
The staff was awesome being able to get some obscure requests. The bed and pillows weren't very comfortable. And there weren't that many amenities.
Well thought out hotel experience; great rooms and unique decor. It's a nice home away from home.
Room was nice, roomy bathroom, clean. Good location. The staff was nice. Roof top bar was enjoyable with good food and drinks. Price to keep the car over night was expensive.
Great location--close to everything we needed. Super friendly, helpful staff. Very comfortable accommodations. The bathroom was poorly separated from the bedroom. With a gap above the hanging door to the bathroom area and a much bigger gap above the glass door that made up the toilet room, it was almost like we were in there together. Not very romantic.
Central location, nicely decorated, friendly and helpful staff
I travel to Chicago several times a year and I have to stay this was the best hotel I've ever stayed at. It is modern, clean, quiet and very centrally located. The most impressive thing is the staff. Everyone (from the front desk, to the cleaning ladies, etc.) is extremely helpful, polite (always say "hi"), ... I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone!
Loved the breakfast, definitely eat it! Great location to everything in the city. Room was comfortable and whole place was very clean. The lobby set-up. It's too small to handle a large crowd, especially if more than five are waiting to check-in.
