Great location, reasonable price!

The staff at Hotel 71 were outstanding! They met all of our needs quickly and in the most friendly manner. They seem to be in the midst of a renovation and the lobby is attractive. The rooms weren't quite up to par with the rest of the hotel (no fridge, small tube type television). Overall we had a great experience.

great staff, poor upkeep

The staff was GREAT, friendly and helpful. The hotel room was a disaster. It was dirty and dingy and very disappointing for the money.

Hotel 71 Review

The service offerings are eclectic for an upscale hotel in downtown Chicago. They offer in-room coffee and no-fee wireless, both of which are unusal for major Chicago hotels. We found the hotel under-served by elevators, warm corridors and really unfriendly staff. Also, the hotel didn't have an attached restaurant, which we found unusual and inconvenient.

Great Location

GREAT location!! Able to walk to Michigan Ave, Millenium Park, close to the El train. Staff was helpful with directions and reccomendations. Valet was a little pricey. Some things in the hotel could use some work, carpet looked old, bath tub drain a little tricky. But overall a great hotel!

Hotel 71 Chicago

The hotel is in a great location, near all the shops and attractions of downtown Chicago - can't be beat. The price was great and the rooms are large. The bathrooms are very dated and need complete make-overs, but functional.

The 71

Great location, friendly staff. We had read some of the rooms are small but ours was adequate. We started on the wrong foot, we pulled up and the bellman told there was only valet parking for $45/day. The first time we left the hotel we saw a self park next door and they told us we could park there for $28/day. Overall we thought it a good value and would stay again.
