Perfect for Opera

This is the third time I have stayed at the Allegro for a visit to the Opera. It is perfect. Just five blocks away from the Lyric Opera.The staff are great, directions, things to do, and a safety pin for a button on my coat. The 312 restaurant has reasonably good food, and an excellent staff.

Romantic Valentine's Getaway

The location of this hotel is excellent near great restaurants. From the valet experience to check-out the staff were welcoming and of great assistance. The decor is modern and fun. The beds super comfortable. The complementary wine hour was great. Overall, it was an excellent experience and will stay again.

Great place, very reasonably priced

I love Chicago, and this was for the money the best place I have stayed. The staff was great, I went to Restaurant 312 and it was reasonably priced. Walking distance from most things and cab by others. Highly recommend it. Geo

Ordinary for a four star

The room was very small, and the "luxury" bathroom was absolutely tiny! I expected more for the price. On the positive side: great location, nice lobby with free wine and beer from 5-6pm, helpful staff, and pet friendly.

Time for an upgrade

At the cost they charge per room, the beds should be higher quality. One side was extremely worn out while the other had hardly been used, making for a very lopsided bed and uncomfortable sleep.

Great place, service, clean room

Free coffee provided in the morning and wine provided at 5pm. The fitness center is great even if its small but includes everything I want. Nice hotel! Strongly recommend!

Good Hotel

Very close to public transit, easy to get to the Metra train. Centrally located and near shopping and dining options. HUGE bonus! Wine hour every day from 5-6 (free!) also tea and coffee in the AM. Rooms were small, in need of some upgrading however they added funky wallpaper and art to distract from those issues. Bathroom was nice, very very small but it had everything you would really need. One downside is that they are pet friendly which means you can hear your neighbors dogs barking at night. That part, not so fun.

Allegro, Chicago

Location was great. Lots of interesting places within walking distance. Loved both the social hour and the morning quiet coffee time in the lobby. Restaurants inside the hotel were delicious, though a bit pricey. A little surprised at the small size of the hotel room. Decidedly not happy with the noise level in the next room. We called the front desk on that. They took care of it - but probably 45 minutes later.

Dining tip: In Hotel

312 - inside the hotel. A bit pricey, but the service is good, the food interesting, and you don't have to go back outside, which is important mid-winter.

Great proximity for going to the theater

The rooms are small but adequate. I had a room on the 19th floor and it had 2 small closets but no dresser. The nice thing about this hotel is that it is in the theater district and you can walk to all of the theaters in a very short time. Encore 312 is the restaurant attached to the hotel and while the food is good the service was slow.
