Contempary Elegance

Would recommend Wed, Jul 1, 2009
We took advantage of the hotel and it's services. We sampled the drinks and eats in the lounge while viewing the hussle of Chicago going by. We entertained a client in the restaurant, in which the staff was superb, friendly and informative on the food and wine being offered. We were asked at each entrance to the main lobby area if any staff could be of help. This may be the best service I have received at a hotel.

Dining

Often tempted to leave hotel for other restaurants. Don't!!

Excellent, high-quality hotel!!

Would recommend Tue, Jun 30, 2009
We spent four nights at the Sofitel Water Tower during a vacation visit to Chicago. The room was excellent!! Very comfortable bed, luxurious bathroom, plenty of closet and dresser space, and nice touches. The hotel is beautiful . . . great architecture, luxurious furnishings, fantastic flowers, super restaurant and bar . . . everything was perfect!! Yes, we would stay there again!!

Attractions

Don't miss the Hancock Tower which is only a few blocks away. The $15 cost of going to the top floor (94th story) Observation Deck is well worth the cost. What a view!! Listen to the headphones too...the information is fun and informative.

"Simply the Best!"

Would recommend Tue, Jun 9, 2009
Every time that you walk up to the door, there is someone holding it for you. The rooms are beautiful and pristine. The staff was a little stuffy, but did their job very, very well. Great experience. Would totally stay here again!

Nightlife hint

"Pops for Champagne" was an item on our "To Do" list that we were going to pass on but decided to complete "only for the experience". It was an amazing night. The music was great. The drinks were amazing and different. And the place was super fun. I wish there was a "Pops for Champagne" closer to home!

Beware of Allergens!

Would recommend Wed, May 20, 2009
The hotel location was phenomenal close to everything!!! Upon arrival I was less than impressed with the accomodations as this hotel was highly rated and I guess you can say that I had extraordinarily high expectations. The room size was ok and other than not having a good vacuum, it seemed clean. My main concern was on a personal note. I had the misfortune of becoming ill while in the room. The hotel referred me to the in house doctor who charged me $450 to give me a diagnosis of conjunctivitis because I had red itchy eyes. When my condition failed to improve I called down to the front desk and asked if the bedding might contain any allergens at which point I was told everything in the bed was down, including pillows, mattress pad and duvet/comforter. Additionally, this hotel allows pets and upon closer inspection of the carpets I found large pet hairs throughout my room. Needless to say I was experiencing a terrible allergic reaction. I requested to have my bed swapped out for a hypoallergenic bedding and they agreed to switch my room. Once in the new hypoallergenic room, all blotchy skin and itchy watery eyes dissappeared. I was later told by another traveller that the Walgreens down the road had a 24hr walk in clinic which would have charged about $50 for a visit. The hotel did not pick up the tab for the doctor but did upgrade my room. Overall I was not impressed.

The toast of the town

Would recommend Wed, May 13, 2009
The staff was extremely professional and at the same time freindly. I don't have anything bad to say. I do have one suggestion though. The majority of the other hotels in the area have gone to provide a breakfast for its guest. I think that is a perfect fringe. Nothing makes your stay unforgettable than on your way out in the morning having at least a continental breakfast at no charge. You should consider this.
