Great Location!!

Hotel is located near everything; magnificent mile, grant park, millenium park and Navy pier, shopping, restaurants, etc. Everything is within walking distance. Our hotel room had a great view of the Chicago River and skyline. The bed was comfortable and service great. I would definitely stay here again! One warning though - the minibar is weight sensored so if you plan on using the fridge to store your own cold beverages or leftovers or even touch anything in there a bill is automatically generated since it shows that you "moved" the items in the mini-fridge. Just let front desk know and they will fix it right away. Seems like it happens all the time. No big deal, but we were surprised to see a bill slid underneath our door for $80 bucks due to "minibar interfacing".

Great Buy and very friendly.

I loved this hotel. We had two double rooms for four women celebrating a milestone birthday and they were terrific. The room was great. Overlooking the lake. They even gave us two comp breakfasts on the concierge floor. And send birthday cake and balloons to the celebrant. Who could ask for anything more. Thanks.

Don't eat at Spiaggia. It is a rip off. Pretty but not a well spent dollar.

Look up the Riverfront Theater. It's on the near West side and for some reason the theater listing seem to miss it. Saw Dancing Queen there and I would go again, without a question.

Sleek splender

Swissotel offered a relaxing and thrilling get-away. Modern styling and technology were evident in the computer -driven elevators which whisked one to their own floor, the air conditioning which stirred into action as soon as one entered the room, and fantastic big-head showers. The personal touch was also evident. Every employee seemed eager to help and generous in extending options. For instance, we were told that the breakfast buffet could include any specialty item on the menu.
