3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Outstanding hotel. Small rooms but great use of space. Bed comfortable. Clean facility. Super friendly staff. Reasonably priced. I've stayed in many hotels in Chicago and this us definitely one of the best. I'll definitely being staying here again. Great job guys!!!

Nice clean room. Bed was comfortable. Nice location

Overall the hotel was amazing!!! Hotel and staff were great. Would recommend to others!!!

It's a great hotel in the best location! It's nice to be off the tourist area of Michigan Ave and hit all the local hot spots.

Great value for the price--free water and wifi too. Beatrix is excellent!

I am a HUGE fan of the Aloft Hotels and this one delivers!! Great location, excellent staff, full service amenities!! Can't say enough about this hotel!

Awesome stay! The room was nice and comfy with floor to ceiling windows of city. The staff was very friendly and the hotel itself had everything to offer (I.e. Restaurant, pool table, 24 hour gym, bar)

This hotel is in a great location, close to all of the train lines and lots of great restaurants. My wife loved that it was 3 blocks from Michigan Avenue. My kids loved the fact that they had WiFi throughout the entire hotel, it even worked in the elevators so they could FaceTime all of their friends. My son has food allergies and both the coffee bar and the restaurant had great alternatives for him to enjoy. One of the many reasons we stayed here was two queen beds, NOT two double beds. I will be staying here for all of my Chicago trips from now on!! Staff was great, even remembered my conversation with them on the phone when I was booking the trip.

I only stayed for one night but would definitely recommend this hotel to friends wanting to stay in Chicago's River North area. The location can't be beat - easy walking to restaurants and shopping at every price level (Walgreen's to Watertower). While the room is small, the bed was amazing, there was plenty of storage, and the place was super clean. Front desk staff were so friendly and helpful - including offering a complimentary beverage at their terrific coffee bar.

Paid nearly $1200 up front for a room for Monday night through Friday. A missed flight put me in Chicago on Tuesday night. Despite the room being ENTIRELY paid for in advanced, I was denied the reservation and was NOT refunded my money because I missed my check in time which was Monday

clean , comfortable, and nice. not a very good workout room , but great mattresses

nice hotel . Great mattresses. Clean . Helpful staff

Great experience. Nice hotel, bad view. Close location

Clean, comfortable, got the basics covered. Friendly staff, etc. I stayed one night for business, so basically used it just for sleep. It was fine :/

Very clean room, nice amenities, amazing location, great vibe!

We stay in a different hotel every 2-3 months we are in Chicago and this is on the bottom of the list. Location is great but that is about all. NO amenities in room, even had to call front desk for a glass to brush my teeth. They delivered a paper cup used for coffee. Always a wait at front desk, very basic service.

This hotel is hip, trendy and a little edgy. It has all the comforts you need for your vacation or business travel needs.

great hotel, price, location, location, location-super friendly and helpful staff-valet service for car was superior-my new home for weekend getaways for sure!!!

We were only there for a short overnight but entire experience was great! We have stayed at many other hotels in the area when in the city for a night. This was by far, best value and most convenient location. We will definitely be back soon!

Nice room, nice staff, good food. Loved the free pool table!
