Sofitel Chicago Water Tower

The location, two blocks from Michigan Ave., is perfect - close to the activity but very quiet. The hotel service is excellent. We had room service dinner and breakfast and loved the food, presentation and value for the money. We will definitely stay at this hotel again! The room was small, cozy, clean and comfortable.

You are two blocks away from Macy's/Water Tower Place - where you can shop, eat and even see movies all in one location. Perfect!

Pefect Getaway!

I have stayed at almost every hotel in Chicago.... ( at one time or another). For us... the Sofitel Hotel has that cool European vibe. Our suite had a fantastic view of downtown. Room service was prompt beyond believe. The location is prime! There isn't anything that I would change. Overall satisfaction.... perfect!
