Great Staff, Great Room, Great Location

Would recommend Sat, Jul 5, 2014
I wanted a hotel that was reasonably priced, had great city views and was easy to navigate to and from. I got just that with the Sofitel Chicago Water Tower. It's 2 blocks from the L train system. Less than 10 minute walk from a variety of great restaurants and shopping. Has what might be the best staff at a hotel I have ever met (very friendly and accommodating). The rooms were clean and well furnished. We had a big enough desk to double as a table, a lounge couch and a super comfy bed. The bathroom has a shower and a bath tub and is very clean. The view from the 31st floor were great. If you needed any info, the staff is more than willing to help you (they were even willing to call the car rental company for me to make a reservation). My one and only complaint is the parking situation. If you have your own car, overnight parking is $63 per night. There are plenty of local lots that charge less. I didn't have to keep a car overnight, so fortunately it was not a problem. The tidbit I loved was that they are accommodating enough to have umbrellas for guests to use at their leisure. Very helpful when we were caught by a surprise shower as we were leaving the hotel. I have stayed at Sofitel hotels before and have had mixed experiences (even had to cancel a reservation once because it was so bad when I arrived), but this Sofitel was awesome

Shopping hint

Shopping areas start just one block away at the Magnificent Mile.

An Absolutely Awesome Place to Stay!

Would recommend Fri, Jul 4, 2014
We stayed 3 nights for a mini-vacation. We were pleasantly surprised to be placed on 28th floor with a great view, as we were expecting a much lower floor. The room was immaculate. The feather bed and pillows were phenomenal - probably the best I have ever slept in any hotel in my life. The staff was friendly and helpful. We were also surprised to get complimentary wi-fi even though the information from the website which we booked indicated it was not free.

Shopping hint

This is an excellent location for shopping - very close to Magnificent Mile and Water Tower Place.

Treat yourself to a little bit of posh!!!

Would recommend Mon, Jun 23, 2014
I've never stayed at a Sofitel before and they may have just gotten themselves a new fan. I loved this hotel! The building in itself is a work of art, absolutely stunning. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The rooms are bright and comfortable, huge windows. Beds so comfortable, I didn't want to get up. Only snug was in my one hour wait for room service in the morning, but the food ended up being worth the wait. I highly recommend Sofitel!

Great Downtown Hotel

Would recommend Wed, Jun 18, 2014
We recently stayed at the Sofitel Chicago Water Tower. The location was perfect for walking along Michigan Avenue, as well as accessing the trains and buses. Our room was quiet and peaceful. The staff was attentive and friendly. This is our second stay here and we will definitely return.

Visit to Chicago

Would recommend Mon, Mar 24, 2014
There's not much you can do to improve this Hotel except for management to keep an eye on employees and how they treat the customers. Most of the employees are very friendly, just a few give you the impression that they could care less.
