Upon arriving it was very very busy and litter all over the floor but we checked in, the elevator took about 20 minutes to come, a lot of people had no mask..from 9:30-6am the noise was loud and chaotic in the hallways, couldn’t sleep at all.. The toilet was stopped up for most of the stay and the blinds just fall down.. The carpet smelled horrible.. When it was time to check out, we noticed blood on the outside of our door.. The linens on the bed was clean and smelled good. Honestly horrible experience we have ever had for a hotel in that area.. The staff told us we should’ve told them but half the time nobody was at the front desk

The service is grwat as soon as you walk in, the staff are cery helpful and very willing to make your stay better

I liked the location - very convenient to get to and explore around the area. The bar inside was also great..food and drinks were amazing. The room was the perfect size, very clean, and comfortable. The staff were really friendly and helped me with all questions I had!

Great location - walkable rose almost everything you’d want to do. We paid extra for the corner room and enjoyed the extra space and awesome views!

It was nice for the price and location... Would stay again

The rooms are very tiny and hard to walk around in with any more than just one person in the room. The furniture is arranged in such a strange way that you bump into everything. The water is lava hot and it’s near impossible to wash your face or brush your teeth at the sink. Good luck getting breakfast too. The restaurant is nice but the wait is outrageous and the menu is VERY small.

Close to many restaurants in downtown area. Only one thing is: it is also close to fire station, you will hear the fire truck in the middle of night.

Great experience. Wonderful staff, clean rooms, great location.

Great location, friendly staff, great restaurants all around

It was great had absolutely no problems and was in a great location

Excellent option for Chicago, very close to Red Line and Michigan. Extremely friendly and helpful staff, room was great.

Beautiful hotel. Loved the room excellent service in every aspect

New Year’s Eve downtown Chicago was amazing and the staff was very helpful with places to go and stuff to do in the city !!

The hotel is in a very central location and served us just fine. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable. The Aloft wasn't expensive either, so you don't have to spend so much on a great room. We will stay there again.

Awesome. Great service. Great drinks as always at bar.
