"beautiful luxury hotel"

We enjoyed staying at this hotel because the location was great for the activities we had planned at Navy Pier. The room and view were beautiful and the bed was so comfortable. We would have liked to have breakfast at the hotel but didn't want a buffet which was all that was offered.

We walked Navy Pier, had dinner there and then did a boat cruise. We didn't need to take a taxi to get there which was great.

nice place to stay for business

My husband and I wanted to get away for a few days to a different city. Chicago was a great place to visit. The city is not like NY. IT'S Clean. Lots to do even thou we left the kids behind. We enjoyed the pier,wrigley field tour,sears tower,aquarium,and all the modern buildings. Deep Dish pizza highly recomened as well as a chicago style hot dog. The hotel was not what we expected. Rooms were not very clean and found it was more for business travel. We didn't spend too much time in the hotel other than to sleep so if you need to stay not in a 4 star there are other places to stay.

Money-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

Walking is what you will be doing here. The weather was great which was a good thing. Double Decker tour was a great help getting around and really showing us the city you can hop on and off all day. It runs for a day or 3 consective days. It's a must have!!

Convenient, clean, good location

We were looking for a place to stay that was affordable and close to a family member's apartment. We did not need all kinds of fancy stuff with the hotel because we were sleeping there only. If we were going to use their pool,restaurants, or fitness room the price certainly would have been higher. We also chose an alternative sight to park our car that was less pricey.

Great city, great hotel

The Swiss was beautiful. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. The room was large with fantastic views of Navy Pier. My only complaint was the charge guests to use the hotel pool.

clean but ala carte

Hotel was immaculate, room large, ecept for the A/C rattling it was very quiet., the view of the lake was unbelievable. The concierge staff although pleasant and efficient were not very knowlegable about restaurants. The front desk person who checked us in tried to down grade our room and was not at all "costumer focused" i.e. he could care less about us his job or the reputation of the hotel. I would probably stay there again because of the cleanliness, room size and the view.

Money-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

You can walk anywhere, whether it be the beach, navy pier, shopping or eating, if you want to save money just walk! Everything is either by the river or off of Michigan Ave just a few blocks away. Shopping to the north and sightseeing/food to the south.
