Key facts

While staying at the Radisson Blue Aqua Hotel in Chicago, you ll have access to their 8,000 square foot fitness center equipped with treadmills, ellipticals and free weights, so you don t have to miss out on a workout just because you re out of town.

Long Weekend

Would recommend Fri, Dec 4, 2015
The Hotel is beautiful with respect to the rooms, the public spaces and the exterior. The staff are pleasant and prompt from the doormen to the people cleaning the rooms. The attached restaurant for breakfast/lunch has good food and excellent service. The terrace attached to most rooms allows you to walk out and enjoy the view.

Very over rated. Very poor housekeeping staff. Amenities were mediocre. Over all service was average. Got my bill wrong and could not help before nine since the cashier was inexperienced. Had to leave hotel with my bill still unresolved!!!

Chicago Marathon

Would recommend Fri, Oct 16, 2015
Good location if you are running the Chicago Marathon (0.5 miles from the start by map and 1.5 miles from corral A on race day). Close enough to walk to/from the Blue Line station on Lake/Clark. Also the hotel is part of a condo development. So you have access to those amenities also (jacuzzi was awesome after the race). The restaurant has a special menu for the runners to carbo load. I chose the park side. You overlook a park and can see the Navy Pier and Lake Michigan.

Weekend Chicago Wedding

Would recommend Wed, Jul 29, 2015
We attended a summer weekend wedding in Chicago and spent the first two nights at the Fairmont and the last nite at the Radisson Blu Aqua. The comparison was night and day in favor of the Blu Aqua. The Fairmont room let noise filter in from water running in other rooms, street noise and an air conditioner that produced a high pitch whine. The Blu Aqua was sublimely quiet. The Fairmont currents leaked volumes of light which made falling asleep difficult and caused early morning wakeups. The Blu Aqua curtains blocked 99 of outside light. All Blu Aqua staff engaged easily on a personal level and they were happy to provide a late check out time. I'd stay here again.
