Location was great. Near millennium park and downtown attractions Never experienced worse hotel staff than this. From the bell man to reception to guest services
Walk into the grand lobby and you feel like you're part of Chicago history. The rooms are a little small.
Efficient and clean
In the middle of everywhere I needed to be! Near read line, near great restaurants and near the bean. Bed was a bit too uncomfortable and no water pressure in shower.
The check in was smooth and easy. Our attendant answered all of our questions and made great suggestions for food and activities. I will say, i had the BEST caramel macchiato at the Starbucks that is in this hotel. I told the barista then, and i'm saying it again now, it was hands down the best! The bed seemed really firm which is unusual for hotels, usually they are plush.
The main lobby and bar were beautiful and relaxing areas and the hotel is well maintained and clean. Rooms and bathroom were very small and the building is definitely an older building. That being said, the interiors were clean and well taken care of, and the common areas were very well kept and beautiful.
Decor, ambiance, comfy bed and linens, great shower, great mirror in the bathroom, we were pleasantly suprised to see that we were able to open the windows in the room, we like fresh air. The wall paper was peeling in the bathroom.
Very small rooms and poor room service.
The room was very clean. The hotel had many amenities and provided a comfortable home away from home. I was approached by beggars both in front of the hotel (on the sidewalk) and in the hotel lobby. It would have been nice for security to be a bit tighter.
Location Beds were lopsided, couldn't sleep on it.
The lobby is amazing.
We arrived early and tried to check in.Were advised room not ready, but in a hour and we were being upgraded. Two hours later that room was gone, but we could wait for the upgraded room or take our confirmed room (smaller,etc) then.Decided to wait on 23rd floor where the upgraded room was located--very pleasant but took another 40 minutes. It was god to wait and worth it but,.........................., had two double beds. would have liked queen beds as we were three ladies, two of whom are larger.... Everything else was GREAT
The bed was very uncomfortable. The staff was nice but felt robotic.
The location is great, and the staff was friendly. I reserved two rooms in advance, but they did not put us next to each other. As a family traveling, this was disappointing.
We loved the location, the room and the view- just didn't like being next to the elevator. Other than that- it was great!!
Even though the hotel offers nice spacious rooms with an incredibly friendly staff the noise left us with less than desirable evenings. The noise from people in the hallway travelled down the entire hallway echoing, causing the ability to sleep quite difficult. Conversely early in the morning when people were beginning to check out you heard the elevator almost every time... and we were at least 4-5 rooms away from the elevator. Additionally there was hotel room service plates left in the hallway for 1 1/2 days with dirty food on it. I'm a patient person but that's unacceptable for even more than half a day
Hotel and staff were great. Great location! We will book here in the future!
It is a large high rise in Chicago, but the staff makes you feel like you are very important! Their concierges are awesome...make sure you utilize their help!
Location is fantastic and staff were all incredibly friendly. River views from room were great. Facilities in the room were a little run down but clean and comfortable beds and everything else was great.
Nice room on 38th floor with great view. Location was great. Walking and Uber/Lyft is no problem. Elevator is really loud for room 3802 but only during high traffic hours. (View made up for it) Restaurant is disappointing for price and selection. If I am going to spend $25 for breakfast $10+ dollars for cocktails or any amount for average food at dinner, there are other options within walking distance that are SO much better. They need reasonable prices to compliment convenience.
Right by elevator
Came early bc we were miserable at another hotel so we showed up at 1030AM Ann's they kindly let us check in for our four nights at that time so we could relax get and shower and unpack before hitting the city. Phenomenal location to all and I mean all things. The whole staff is friendly and helpful. Great city and river views. Would most certainly recommended to anyone visiting the city.
Check in was a breeze..Location was wonderful, and staff was courteous and helpful. I can't think of any negatives....
Everything was great!
Rooms were incredibly tiny. Elevators did not work.
Great hotel, great service, great room. Couldn't have been happier with the Hotel Allegro The booking site Amoma.com gave me an invalid confirmation number, and since the hotel was already full for the second half of my stay, I ended up quite stressed out and dragging my luggage around for a full day until the hotel had a cancellation and I was able to stay. Amoma.com was very responsive and professional when they finally responded (I think they're based in Switzerland), and I think some third party was responsible for the booking problem, but regardless, my stay was more distressing than I had hoped for. If you have a choice, I would recommend booking with another agency for this location.
The location. My wife and I went to see the Phantom of the Opera playing next door at the Cadillac Palace. I can't say enough about the convenience of having the hotel next door. no having to walk blocks to our vehicle. Walked down the sidewalk and into the hotel, was able to avoid the cold Chicago weather. The Room. We stayed in Room 405. Our view out of the 2 windows, the first was a brick wall, the second, an alley way. At about 2am, for some reason the windows decided they wanted to bang against the frame endlessly, not allowing neither my wife or I to sleep. The bed was definately not a King Bed, and for it being a Premier Room, I would have expected the bathroom to be bigger than the size of a closet. I can't say I wouldn't stay here again, but would want to see the room before check-in.
The room was perfectly sized and extremely comfortable. Not a single thing.
Clean! Beautiful! Wish the bathtubs were a tad bigger!
Perfect for theater weekend. Great location, beautiful room . Thoughtful amenities.
This review is not a negative review of the hotel. Rather it is a result of a horrible experience with kayak and their vendors. Upon arriving at the hotel, I was told at the front desk my reservation did not exist. After showing them several emails from kayaks vendors, they told me those confirmation numbers did not exist if that was the fifth person with the same issue booking through kayak that day. After several hours on the phone with no successful resolution with kayaks vendors, my partner was finally able to secure a room for us at another hotel. We are still trying to resolve this issue with. I will not be booking through kayak again.
The receptionist messed up my receipt.I used my company's card to stay and I am the only person who stay in the hotel.And when checking out,I just asked for the receipt but didn't check it.after coming back,I have to use the receipt to do my reinbursement,but found out that it is not under my name and the stay person wrote down two,which looks pretty bad on me!i called the hotel to change the receipt name,they refused it bc it is a past reservation! The most annoying thing is that when I checked out using the compan card,I asked them if it is ok to pay with a card not under my name.they didn't say anything.and the worst thing is that the receptionist change the name of my reservation in the system and didn't tell me about it.moreover,the receipt amount doesn't match my reservation amount which is also ridiculous!!!All in all, this experiment almost cost me to not be able to reinburse my stay. They r obviously not professional and it gives me a really bad memory here!
Very clean and friendly staff No iron in the room
Best was very comfortable. Room was smaller than I thought it was going to be. They really need to add a curved shower curtain.
Luxurious hotel The room is much smaller than it seems in the photos. Walls are super thin which makes privacy very difficult. Expect to hear your neighbors.
The rooms are large and the bathroom is awesome ,The rooms are large and the bathroom is awsom
The staff was amazing. Everything detail from decor to comfort was superior in quality and taste. Fantastic location. Amazing pool ans spa. The additional room service charge
Location is excellent. staff is good.
This place is so extra!! I have stayed at the London location but it had been so long ago that I forgot how nice it is.
Very nice. Excellent price for how luxurious it was. The room was unbelievable and the location was perfect. The parking was very easy, if you don't want to use the valet, there is a parking garage right next to the hotel. I had called to confirm our check in was at 3pm, and I received an email stating that our check in was at 3pm. However, our room was not available until after 4pm. We had missed our dinner reservations because of this. And being that we paid alot to stay at this hotel, they did not offer any compensation for their error.
I loved the spa, and the club level. The art--in the halls, and the rooms--was quite wonderful and unique in my experience. The food on the club level was excellent. And the spa is the best I've found amongst hotels, and in Chicago. Staff was quite helpful. It is very expensive. I was amazed at how expensive the overnight parking would have been ($ 71), and chose to park for 1/3 of that in a garage next door.
Well thought out hotel experience; great rooms and unique decor. It's a nice home away from home.
The view and the equipment of the hotel No breakfast provided
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.
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.
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.
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.
Central location Nice view Quiet room
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.
Central location, nicely decorated, friendly and helpful staff
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
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.
Great location, helpful staff, and clean rooms. The "jewlers row" theme is a nice touch.
The location was nice. Boring hotel, average style rooms and amenities for the price range hotel
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!
Talk to Bennie when you get there. He'll get you set up downtown.
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!
Was a bit of a mess but it will end. Not all rooms have a desk for computers
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.
Loved the atmosphere, very pretty, very nice hotel. Had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend it.
The location was excellent. Toilet ran all night, mold in the shower, rooms exceptionally small, no convenient place for computer.
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.
No available movies to watch in room.
So ridiculous paying 19$ for wifi
Cool, hip decor, great location to restaurants and 10Pin Bowling alley, just steps away from House of Blues, walking distance to shopping district and theater district, Marina Parking garage has great rates just next door. Finishes could use a makeover, I have stayed there for years and it could use an update. Would rather see a walk in shower instead of cheaper looking old tubs (however OUTSTANDING water pressure). Breakfast is a little pricey too.
Nice , good location.
I really liked the location of this hotel. Even though I booked it for a friend, I was next door at the Westin. One thing I REALLY loved was the fact that you need a key to use the elevators to go onto the floors. That was a perk. BUT. My room wasn't 100% cleaned. When I went to check in, I went up to the room and looked it over. There was leftover food in the mini fridge, there was a few bottles of alcoholic drinks missing that Im hoping Im not going to be charged for, even thought house keeping came up and told me I wouldn't be charged. NOT only that, there were condoms(unused) and a bottle of lube left in the room. My only issues...
Location in the heart of Chicago downtown. Lack of concern for the interests of customers. I was a Marriot Gold Elite member and after this recent stay I felt like I should quit the reward program for good.
Great customer service! The staff was very helpful and informative. The Manager spent about 20 minutes with us outlining key points on a map he provided of places to go and things to see as well as the walking distance from the hotel. The whole staff was very friendly. The ambiance of the hotel decor & design was outstanding, not to mention the perfect view from our room. The location is superb & right in the center of Chicago's nightlife. The only thing that I didn't like about the place is that they shut down the pool area earlier than most hotels. But overall would rate this hotel a perfect 10. Great experience and would definitely recommend!
I was here Sunday through Friday. My sink broke on Tuesday and was never repaired. They changed the towels and made the bed, but didn't clean the room. I shutter to think what the sticky substance on the bedside table was. I didn't eat any gummy candies, but kept finding bits of said candies in the room. Clearly, it hasn't been cleaned in awhile.
Overall hotel is good...good location, nice athmosphere, etc Bugs in the bed! ... Woman hair in the bed! ... Air conditioner not working properly....
Location Rate Small room and bathroom Hotel could have been cleaner. Room temperature hard to regulate Very dated
The rooms are nice size, it's in a great location, the fitness center is nice and the bar is popular. The rooms have an eclectic look. The beds are comfortable and the hotel is quiet. The staff was attentive and curtious. The price was very good for the location. We ordered food at the bar and they checked on it twice but it never came. Everything else was great
Beautufully located in downtown Chicago, we enjoyed close proxumity to restaurants and attractions. The room had most everything one would expect, except a mini-fridge. We did not get to dine in the hotel but the bar and restaurant both looked great. Our 8th floor room had a brief view of the river but was obstructed by the parking garage. Parking is $71. We chose to park 4 blocks away ($20 overnight).
Staff were horrendously unhelpful on more than one occasion
Exceptional customer service training, great rooms, super location
The city is amazing and being able to come back to a great place to rest makes a big difference between a good trip and an awesome trip. The staff was incredibly polite, and the customer service at this place is above and beyond.
Location, design, service. Soundproofing could be better, for something so new, too many items weren't working.
My son and I had a great stay at London House! It is located perfectly and is within walking distance or a short Uber ride of Navy Pier, Millenium Park, OTC. The hotel was clean, comfortable, and staff was friendly! We tried to eat at the hotel restaurant to avoid going out in a storm. The restaurant is more of a bar setting and the menu is not family friendly. Needless to say we braved the storm, got soaked! Great memory! Lots of good places to eat around the hotel.
Modern, relatively new, comfortable room except for shower head. Nice staff but had to wait on my room way past the 4p check-in time. Staff gave me water and premium internet because I had to wait so long for room. I have the Hilton app and credit card. I was allowed to pick my room, so I did on the app. I did not get the room I selected. I arrived early. Was told my room was not ready. By 4 p (check-in time) it was not ready; not ready by 4:45p (yet I saw several checking in at 4p). I had to leave for dinner and opera (couldn't change into the intended clothes because of the room not ready). Shower head doesn't allow for focused stream; took a while to rinse thick hair.
The rooftop bar is amazing...during the winter, however, the lounge is enclosed and not much to talk about. Our room had a gorgeous view of the river, the bed was comfortable, linens were great, and the big tv was like being in bed at a movie theatre. The workout facility was very cool, like a trip to the future. Great stay, we would do it again for sure.
Everything was perfect. Amazing views of the river. Only open a month.
Room was small and oddly shaped. Could not get wait staff to take our order in the restaurant which was fine since menu didn't look appetizing anyway.
Quite pleasant and well situated.
Nice hotel, great location.
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
beautiful room, great amenities, very clean and modern some confusion at the front desk when checking in but it seemed to only be us
Great downtown location. Doors locks dont work. Bathroom fixtures broken.
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.
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!!!!
great location, service, & facility
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.
The wit hotel is definitely a great spot. My husband and I went on a very cold winter day. It was nice they have the club/bar on 27th this way we didn't have to leave the hotel. We would stay ther again.
Extremely convenient for getting to the Chicago Theatre.
Great service and great location.
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.
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, 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 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.
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.
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.
evening cocktail hour not too big
Clean hotel, great location, staff was very accommodating Honestly, nothing comes to mind.
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
The room was very clean and spacious. The bed was comfortable. Staff was friendly and professional. Easy check in and check out. I would stay here again!
The hotel was clean and very nice. All staff I encountered were very nice. The best part in my book was the location. It was right on the river (although because of a brick wall that creates a little courtyard outside the lobby/restaurant you can't see the river from the main floor entrance way, but you could see it from above and below this location). It was comfortable. It smelled nice (they push their "signature scent" out in the lobby which is fresh and pleasant). There are MANY restaurants within walking distance, including one of my favorites, Frontera (upscale Mexican). There's also a restaurant right outside the lower level doors (take the two escalators down) that's right on the river. You're within walking distance of Michigan Avenue (if you like to walk) or you could always take a cab to that area if walking too much isn't appealing. The location really can't be beat. Really the only thing I didn't like was how very DARK it was in the lobby of this hotel. They need to add some attractive lighting (chandeliers, lamps) so it feels more cheerful. I understand that this used to be a Niko Hotel and was done in the Japanese style (which is still evident). If they're not going to add lighting, then adding some fountains for pleasant ambient noise would be good. I would also suggest that they add more "windows" in their brick wall in the courtyard outside the lobby/restaurant. I know there's a sidewalk out there that they likely wanted to "protect" the hotel from, but their present set-up misses the view of the river and downtown.
The chase lounge chair next to the window. I enjoyed the view of the city and the river. I liked watching the tour boats coming and going. The bed was comfortable, the shower was nice and the room was quiet. I felt that the staff were courteous and helpful. Nothing that I can think of.
comfortable nice room good staff except front desk They did not have my Kayak reservation. They did honor the reservation however; it was done with attitude " how di d you get this rate for this weekend?"
If you're staying here....river view is an absolute must! Would definitely stay again.
Hotel location was excellent close to shopping at Magnificent Mile and with several good restaurants within 5 minutes walk. Concierge was not on top form but everyone can have an off time so not a problem and all other staff extremely helpful
i had no booking when i arrived, yours or their system had stuffed up. I have paid the hotel directly, please ensure you do not charge me
