Centrally located and accessible to tourist attractions. Friendly knowledgeable staff. Value priced.
Check in was busy but efficient Because it was our 10th wedding anniversary I called to have a bottle of proseco waiting for us in the room. I was told they didn't have proseco but it was listed in the menu. The walls are paper thin. So much so not only could I hear the guy next door but I could also hear the person he was talking to on the phone. came downstairs to get my car from the valet and was told it would take 20 minutes. No one said anything when I checked in and there were no instructions that allowed you to call ahead from your room. Bathroom floor was sticky. Overall, the worse hotel visit.
I enjoyed my stay. No recommendations for improvement T this time
Nice room; cool hotel No pool
Easy walk to many restaurant, sites and public transportation.
Location was great. Staff was nice. Workout facility adequate. The BIG bar and the common spaces were really neat. no convienent way to have towels replaced. You had to call housekeeping. Also the sink was small, no place to leave personal items on sink. Couldn't use the refrigerator because it was rigged to charge you for minibar items.
From check in to check out, our stay at the Hyatt Regency was a superb experience. The staff was genuinely hospitable, and the entire facility was luxurious. The premium view is worth the extra $$$, as we had a breathtaking view of the river and lakefront. Definitely recommend. It was pricey, but definitely worth it. I really can't say anything else that was undesirable, as our stay was basically perfect.
Massive hotel. too big. very unpersonal. conference hotel and for group travel.
Very clean comfortable room with a great view. Close to many areas we wanted to visit. Would definitely choose this hotel again.
almost everything $65 for parking at their hotel. too much for guest
My friend and I got there on a Thursday night. We asked the manager if we could get an upgrade since I was a gold member and the hotel was more than half empty. She denied us that courtesy. I would understand if the hotel was full but it was totally empty probably due to the bad weather so I will not stay here again
Large and full service yet not corporate-looking and bland. Very slow elevator.
Its just 18 floors
Location, interior design, amenities
The room was great and the amenities were awesome. Great location, only a few minutes from Michigan Ave and Millenium Park. It would be hard to return to Chicago and stay anywhere else!
Beautiful hotel all around. Incredible pool deck, one of the best I've seen, Upscale, and very clean. The noise from fire station nearby meant that we had to keep the balcony door closed and so it was a waste to pay the extra money for a balcony you can't enjoy. Very expensive parking.
Booked through kayak the day of to arrive and no record of my booking at hotel. Card was swiped twice, so I had to wait past my stay for the authorization to fall off for the $700 charge. It was a messy situation and one that shouldn't happen while I am taking a break.
The staff were EXCELLENT! I was there for a small event and Dominic took perfect care of us. Loved my stay!
I hosted a meeting while I was there and their banquet staff was exceptional! They were able to make changes last minute. If they didn't know the answer to a question they found out for me. They were always smiling and always on top of every detail without my asking. The side chair & mattress were a little harder than I prefer.
Cool looking. Hotel corridors unique in a good way. Room comfortable. Balcony nice but should have bad small chairs. Bar uncomfortable and staff had stiff personalities. Facilty confusing.
Modern room, loved the shower.. Found the room servicw menu limited, very few items.
room was excellent - very comfortable bed restaurant was nothing special - for location of the hotel it was poorly situated and did not take advantage of this location and offer a view of the park or of the lake
Loved the view of the city from our balcony. Also, the rain shower was great! It was the perfect location to all the tourist attractions of the city. Would definitely stay here again! The cost of parking was a bit overpriced.
This hotel has a really nice "members only" feel to it like a stodgy old man city club with out the stodginess. it is beautifully decorated and the rooms were not your usual doer and feel. There are so many different venues to choose from that we could have never led the hotel. The drinks and food are a bit pricey, but it fits. The only thing I would change about the room is that we wished there was an in room coffee maker. With all of the other stuff they put in the room to charge you for, a coffee make would have been nice. Also, we had to order ice from guest services as there are no ice machines on the floor.
Service is some of the best in the industry. Placing hotels like W, and other botuques, even larger Four Season and that ilk, into the realm of service as imperious paridy. Returning in April with colleagues and clients from around the world for business meetings, fun, and knowledge that great service and an outstanding stay awaits.
Great location, and beautiful view from the rooftop bar. Renovations in the building are really wonderful, and we enjoyed having coffee in the morning in the lobby area. Unfortunately, the hotel can't decide if it's catering to its guests, or the long line of people waiting to get up to the rooftop. Elevators were extremely slow, and we were told not to take the stairs, even though there was no sign saying staff only. Additionally, the design of the room trumps function. I wish there was a place to hang my towels. And it was dark--I had to move my suitcase underneath the light to find my clothes. And yes, the shower leaked everywhere and was a little cold. But it all looked nice.
Loved the location the staff and the bed Hated not having a tub , shower only . The room view was a metal structure and a concrete wall . The room was very small.
Beds very comfortable. Location was perfect. Lighting in bathroom not good at all. Height of tub could be a problem for kids and short adults.
Very unique hotel with cool public spaces and furnishings. Friendly, helpful staff. across the street from the cloud sculpture at millennium park. Highly recommend!
Public spaces, vibe, decor, the radio in room. The inability to do a normal load of laundry -- either by myself or by the pound -- they only offered laundry with rates like $5 per pair of underwear was a major hassle/shockingly overpriced. Rooms are pretty small and most face an old factory-type building, but that's no big deal.
I chose Fairmont Chicago, Millennium Park because of its location and good reputation. After my stay at the hotel I am glad that I made a right choice. When I was checking into the hotel there was some confusion about my reservation. I reserved two rooms but the hotel reservation system showed only one room under my name. After I presented my two hotel reservation vouchers and email communication the front desk manager quickly gave me two rooms without unnecessary delay (the room types were exactly what I requested when I made my reservation). The hotel front desk manager and staff were very courteous while they were trying to sort it out. I and my family had a great stay there. It's location and free room wi-fi connection were excellent.
I will be a Fairmont customer for life. Anytime I am to stay in a hotel, I will be looking to see if there is a Fairmont location available. The staff is always accommodating and VERY polite. I cannot praise them enough. Even the representatives on the phone were extremely helpful. I thank those that assisted in my experience with the most sincere gratitude I can express. I cannot say anything unkind about this hotel. I notice that some reviewers have stated things like the ceiling is water-stained and there's some damage to this or that. Honestly, I just told the service desk about there being a slight water stain on the ceiling in the bathroom. Other than that I didn't have any issues, and this is my second time staying at this hotel. Really though, are you staying in a hotel because you want the entire room to look brand new? Please redirect yourself to a room in another hotel that costs around 3 times the price of what the Fairmont's rates are. I assure you, for the price offered for the rooms in this hotel, you will not find a better experience.
Great views, great rooms, great staff, wonderful stay. Pricey room service
The parking garage is located right next door and was very easy to access. No need to spend money on valet parking, unless you don't like carrying your luggage. Parking next door was 1/2 the cost. (About $35 per day). Safe area. Great location! No free WiFi in rooms. In order to use free WiFi, you had to go to the lobby. Pricey stay for no internet access in room.
Good access to Chicago attractions #1 WAY TOO EXPENSIVE. Room price was average to low for area. But restaurant was mediocre and priced straight insulting, $29 for a buffet with no omelette bar, no fresh Oj, nothing fresh. Worst buffet for the money ever. #2. No snacks on floors and $5 for 20 Pringles potato chips. No snack food in area especially late night. Room service slow and speedy. #3. $70 for parking. No validation or discount for hotel customers, across the street its $35 also borderline insulting
The room was very comfortable and the hotel staff was fabulous. Really enjoyed our stay.
The staff was incredibly kind Bathroom wasn't immaculate
I honestly felt like I stole from them for getting my room that cheap! It's a truly 5 star place it's close to everything you could want to do downtown! The staff is very friendly and amazing! The rooms are very nice and pretty big!
Location - very convenient. One of those hotels that tries to make money on every little extra. Cockroaches on the 26th floor where our room was. Reported it to the front desk - they didn't sound surprised at all.
Friendly staff Convenient location Cleanliness Shower lacks decent pressure Room A/C wouldn't cool properly
Good value, good location Parking high $70 a day, room service cart left in hallway for almost full day. Wireless cost high $16 per day,
I don't recomend for people who go in a group of people! I went there with 3 more friends. They gave us a room with only 1 bed. CAN YOU SLEEP 4 people in 1 bed? Or do you prefer to sleep in a couch? That's what they said; "sorry, but that's what is available" WHO PAYS A DAMN EXPENSIVE ROOM TO SLEEP IN A COUCH?
We got a great rate on kayak. The room was spacious, bathroom was huge, and shower was great. Lots of storage and hangers. Staff was extremely helpful, very nice, and very quick when help was needed. The view of the room was awful. We looked at a very dirty alleyway with a view of a brick wall. Also our truck was damaged by the valet service. They assured us they would make it right, so that's why I still gave them 4 stars.
Didn't stay here long but got upgraded to a beautiful suite. Great facilities, decor, etc. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Definitely a great choice!
I liked that it was close to everything we wanted! The wifi was slow! They had no ice machines in the hallways so we had to call every time for the front desk to being some to us. When entering the hotel it had a clean but smelly odor it was weird! We requwsted with a nice view but we got the back of another buildings view! The shower had some mold!
Location, location, location Two blocks from Chicago 'bean' - cloud gate and parks. Front of hotel with construction for 'E' was not pretty -- but we never heard any noise in our room.
The location was excellent. Toilet ran all night, mold in the shower, rooms exceptionally small, no convenient place for computer.
The location was nice. Boring hotel, average style rooms and amenities for the price range hotel
Everyone was just so helpful - whether it was advice on the train system, to off the beaten path restaurants or activities, all of the staff went out of their way to help us enjoy our trip to Chicago. The room was very quiet - we seldom heard any noise outside of our door. There was a bit of construction outside the hotel, but even that added to the peace we felt at the facility.
Was a bit of a mess but it will end. Not all rooms have a desk for computers
Rooms are comfortable and well maintained Convenient location across from the Goddess and the Baker and of course a short distance from the Bean (Millenium park) Very friendly helpful staff
Great location, helpful staff, and clean rooms. The "jewlers row" theme is a nice touch.
Loved the atmosphere, very pretty, very nice hotel. Had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend it.
Talk to Bennie when you get there. He'll get you set up downtown.
Great location near the CTA, riverwalk, theaters, shopping. Dog friendly! We have a Lab/Great Dane mix that we took along on a weekend. There is an off leash dog park 2 blocks away. The parking is expensive if you use the hotel valet. You can save about half if you book a spot at a nearby garage through spothero or another site.
The hotel's location was ideal and the staff was courteous, friendly, and helpful especially in providing local recommendations. We requested and were told we would be receiving a feather-free room but the room we were checked into had feather pillows and a down comforter.
Great, attentive staff. Terrific location by the river. Comfortable bed. Lobby Door staff was extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming. Expensive for what you get. Room a/c is on energy saving computer load management, so it can take ten minutes to respond. River view 7th floor deluxe king Room had one uncomfortable arm chair, and a tiny sliver of a window that allowed one to see the bridge over the river, but, no water or boats. Exercise room was a joke, just A universal and dumbells. Free morning coffee a plus, but offset with tiny cups and mediocre coffee blend. Free evening wine was nice, but unlike far less expensive embassy suites, no snacks offered.
The location can't be beat, and the room was spacious and comfortable. The staff were incredible helpful and welcoming. The room was advertised as having a special bathtub, a key reason we booked this room. However, the bath wasn't anything special. It was just a typical hotel short tub, not the large tub we were hoping for. I would have paid a premium for a nice tub, but there are no such things at the Monaco, so we were stuck.
The room was amazing and the location couldn't have been any better. Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful. The complementary hot chocolate and wine were also amazing. The only problem I had with the stay is that the hotel parking lot charges $58 a night.
evening cocktail hour not too big
one of the two hotel elevators was not working... we were on the 11th floor.. it took nearly 30 minutes each time to get an elevator..the AC was not working . The room was nice and comfortable.. however the AC and the elevator really created a bit of stress for us... the cost for the weekend visit 2 nights was not acceptable given the conditions.. When I asked the front desk clerk to adjust our bill she went on about how they were working on getting the elevator repair but it was difficult on the weekend.. still no satisfaction on my end. SORELY DISAPPOINTED. Margo DOlan firstname.lastname@example.org
Easy reservations, numerous email reminders, e-checkin with room preference, quick check in and valet service, nice roomy quiet room. Parking added 30% to the cost of room. The cost of parking in Chicago is a major negative to doing business in the city. The restaurant attached to the hotel ran out of black tea. The waiter indicated it happens frequently. The hotel lobby had no black tea. How can you run out of black tea?
Great service and great location.
The staff was incredibly welcoming and friendly. We had a great stay and felt well taken care of. Rooms are well appointed, will definitely stay here again in the future! We had no issues.
Clean hotel, great location, staff was very accommodating Honestly, nothing comes to mind.
My boyfriend and I decided to have a fancy night out and found a great deal for Virgin Hotels Chicago. It was for only one night but we wished it could have been a week! Everything was amazing. Check-in and check-out service was fast, easy, and staff were all so friendly and accommodating. Our room was gorgeous, most amazing bed we've ever slept on! Overall, Virgin Hotels had an amazing vibe to it, very hip and fancy. Absolutely recommend!!! That we didn't get to stay longer!
Loved that the room was half vanity and bathroom. When people travel they're always getting ready for something. Make sense you give them ample place to do it.
We had to wait 90 mins to be checked into our room. We also had to ask twice to have our room made up even though we had the service light on.
GREAT design, beautiful art, comfortable, clean, easy and has a personality. Also, mini bar is reasonably priced, which really says a lot. Also, the process to get in and get out was so simple and efficient, I'll be staying there the next time I head back to Chicago.
layout, amenities, bed
Brilliant, well thought out design elements made our chamber a pleasure to stay in. Separated dressing room/washroom allowed myself to get ready in the morning while my fiancé grabbed a few extra minutes of sleep in peace. Additionally the staff was very helpful, informative at check-in, and incredibly friendly. Also the Hosted Social Hour is an absolute must do! There wasn't anything major to complain about here. My fiancé felt the complimentary toiletries could have been more femanine scented (or at least a tad more gender neutral) and our server at the dinner in the lobby was slow and forgot a third of our order (to her credit however, she recovered well when the mistake was pointed out).
Location, friendly staff
happy hour from 7-8, free drinks for hotel guests
Staff is wonderful. Room service was inconsistent. Ordered same sandwich twice, received completely different sandwich and sides.
The coffee shop has gone down hill
It was an easy check in. The front desk staff offered city maps and directions to nearby attractions. The room was comfortable and clean. The bed was a good quality. The shower was nice and big. The complimentary breakfast had a wide variety which was good for people with different diets. The room was a little on the small side but I was comfortable enough in it. The bathroom did not have a vent so the mirrors got fogged up after a shower. Definitely not a deal breaker. The parking was pricey for valet but you can get your car and bring it back if you want to leave to do something.
Nice staff No black out curtains. Heating system in room took a long time to kick in and warm up the room. Carpet smelled like feet. Room was TINY.
Fantastic staff. Super clean and updated while maintaining the building's historical identity.
Each room has a mini fridge and microwave. Business center with Internet access and printer available. Beds were comfy and clean. Located near cta train and buses. Convenience stores and restaurants very close by. Would have loved to have cheaper breakfast options available at the hotel and complimentary coffee/tea in the lobby. Dining area in the lobby is convenient but very expensive.
Brand new, super close to the loop, totally worth it and most definitely will stay there again! Don't expect amazing Chicago views
Value for price, very clean, exceptionally friendly staff Daily parking rates were quite expensive.
