great boys weekend

Would recommend Wed, Sep 16, 2015
My two long time friends and I each year spend a weekend together going to a NFL game. This year we chose Chicago. The Ritz is in a great central location. The room was great, the price reasonable and the staff was very helpful. I am going to bring my girlfriend to Chicago next month and we will stay at the Ritz.

Fantastic Hotel

Would recommend Tue, Oct 14, 2014
The hotel staff was top notch - always going that extra mile for us no matter what we needed (and we found ourselves needing a few things in our one night stay!). For marathon weekend this hotel had a rate not much higher than the rest of Chicago hotels so a big win for us! I will gladly splurge on this hotel for my next Chicago stay.

Such a lovely trip

Would recommend Sun, Sep 7, 2014
Our experience was perfect, fun food, helpful staff, lobby was so beautiful and the bars and restaurant were a treat at every turn. There was some construction while we were here, but it was of no bother. We were in town for an open water swim and the location was perfect. We walked everywhere we wanted to go. What a great weekend. Our only complaint is that our bed was SO hot. We both woke up sweating, which we decided was due to a down pillow topper over the mattress as well as a down comforter. The pillow topper might only need to be a winter thing.

Money saver

there is coffee in the lobby! don't order it to your room

Over Rated - Bootleg

Would not recommend Wed, May 21, 2014
The staff was rude and arrogant; our room was not cleaned at 3:30 PM on the second day of our stay with absolutely no remorse. When we inquired about a late checkout we were told that the hotel was fully committed and it was not possible. After some screaming the late checkout was granted. We stay at the Ritz in Cleveland frequently and the experiences are like night and day. Cleveland is a real Ritz the Chicago Ritz is owned by the Four Seasons which apparently make a huge difference.

Perfect birthday

Would recommend Sat, Apr 5, 2014
This hotel was amazing. The location was great and the staff was very friendly. We loved it here and the staff even surprised us with a cupcake for my husbands birthday. I definitely recommend this hotel and our next visit to Chicago we will definitely stay at the RItz CArlton.

Shopping hint

The mall connected to the hotel was great and it was a short distance to other name brand stores.
