Fantastic view

Swissôtel was a magnificent hotel. The view was beautiful and the room wasn't short of amazing. The hotel was very clean! But the only thing is that they charge you ten dollars for wifi and 52 dollars a day for valet parking and that is really the only parking option you have. And dont forget to tip or they won't be too happy!! Besides that it was a great hotel With friendly staff

Great value for your $$$/Awesome service

We booked a regular room at a great price ($149+tax), and upon arrival we were instantly upgraded for free to a corner suite! Very clean room, with plenty of good stuff and breathtaking views of lake Michigan and the Chicago river. Sure, the valet parking is outrageous ($52 per day), but nothing's perfect. We'll return to this hotel for sure.

Great Hotel for the Price

Greeted upon arrival and valet the car. 1/2 price parking for Hybrids...yeah! In and out privileges, a definate plus. The hotel stresses "green". I like that...a conscientious hotel. Luxurious room and clean. You can make coffee/hot tea in the room by the cup...great benefit for coffee drinkers. Ate at the hotel restaurant. Ordered business lunch at $19.95. What a great lunch, which included desert. Hospitable staff. When leaving, valet brought the car back with 2 bottles of cold water for the ride home. How nice. I loved the hotel and will definately stay again.

Swissotel is a perfect choice in Chicago

Swissotel is a perfect hotel with a beautiful view of Navy Pier. Location is perfect as it is right on the Chicago River and has an amazing view of the river and lake michigan from most rooms!!!!! It is a nice walk to Navy Pier, Magnificent Mile, Rush Street, River Walk and much more. Very clean and quiet. Big rooms with great comfortable beds. Big bathroom as well. If you drive, don't park in their garage, but at the Aqua building right behind it. Will save $20 a night for parking and is connected to the hotel. Very helpful and friendly staff......We had the perfect 2 night get away...Would stay there again!

We really liked the Redheaded Piano Bar. A nice long walk, but very fun. Can not wear tennis shoes or athletic apparel though.

No otel like Swissotel

Best bang for the buck I have encountered. Helpful staff, great location and room was perfect. From bedding to view could not ask for more. Completely surprised by the family friendly environment of the hotel and downtown area. Check out great eats in the pedway area for breakfast and lunch.
