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.

Location is great, and the room was comfortable but the staff was very rude, not helpful, and not caring. Unless you have to deal with the hotel personnel, a decent place to stay.

very noisy- could hear other rooms opening curtains and slamming doors around the clock. the chain on the shade was difficult to operate and broke completely with gentle use. Unfortunately the broken shade was on the window that did not look out onto an alley with dumpsters. Classy. NOT when i told reception about the problem, the said it was a common occurrence and made no effort to make it up to me. room walls were marred with scrapes and cosmetic damage. turning on the light in toilet room meant turning on all the bathroom lights, so every time one of us got up to use the facilities in the night, the other was awoken by the ridiculous brightness. service at the Beatrix restaurant in the lobby was slow and un-solicitous. food was fine

Great hotel, staff, location and room! Not a single issue!

Great hotel and good rate. It is modern, clean, and a great location near many restaurants.

We only stayed one night but the location was great for our activities. The room felt new and clean and the bed was very comfortable.

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!!!
