Very nice hotel. The design of the hotel is beautiful. I loved the tile design. Close proximity to everything.

The hotel was very clean, organized, stylish, and affordable for being located right in the city. Due to COVID, there dine-in restaurant and bar was closed but the staff provided us a pamphlet of several other great restaurant and places that are in minutes walking distance to go to when needed. Highly recommend this place and will come back again on my next trip back into Chicago!

I had a wonderful time in Chicago, The Julian Hotel was perfect I would definitely come back to this hotel again and recommend this hotel to my friends etc. also that location was perfect and also the staff was great...

We loved our room- the pillows and bed are perfect to come home to and we loved having a nespresso machine for when we woke up. I loved having a gym onsite with so much equipment!

No on site parking. Parking was 2 blocks away, not a deal breaker. Hotel was really nice and clean. Great location.

Great experience! Clean room, comfortable beds, all necessary toiletries in the bathroom and very helpful at reception.

I’ve stayed at other similar hotels, but this one had the most beautiful bathroom design of them all!

Beautiful hotel, great location. With COVID-19, there were precautions taken: masks in all common areas, rooms not cleaned daily, etc. All understandable considering the circumstances. However, on the day we checked out, we asked them for either a late check out or baggage hold since we had a late flight that day and was disappointed with the service we received. We were given conflicting answers, and the person at the front desk seemed more dismissive then helpful. The communication definitely could have been more professional.

Clean and nice wonderdul staff.. the room we stayed in is awesome! Modern decor and the bathroom is spacious too.

HORRIBLE STAY WOULD NOT RECOMMEND. We booked 3 nights over the weekend. We didn't sleep at all the first night due to a strong smell of weed from next door and very loud partying (music and yelling). We called the front desk, but they made no attempt to remedy the situation. We called a couple more times insisting they do something. Finally someone came up to tell them to quite down, but the neighbord only slightly turned the music down. The staff was generally dismissive and unhelpful. The poor experience might not have been so horrible if the Staff would have seemed liked they cared about the situation at all. We ended up checking out the second night because the neighbors started smoking and playing loud music agian around 9pm. The front desk told us they were booked up and could not give a different room. We checked out and booked another near by hotel. Orbitz was wonderful during this process they called the hotel to give us a refund.

great location, clean rooms, nice staff. My only complaint is that the nespresso machine in the room was buggy and there were not instructions. I used to own a nespresso machine so I am familiar with them.

The Hotel Julian was very nice: no complaint whatsoever with the facilities or service. BUT as I was checking in I was informed that I would be charged a daily add-on fee of $15+ that was hidden in the small print when I purchased the room prior to my arrival. The explanation as to why: to pay for the extra amenities. For example, bottles of water, and a newspaper. I suppose riding up in the elevator must have been one of the "extras" also. I've been coming to Chicago for decades, and have stayed in many of the city's fine downtown hotels, and never had to pay a hidden fee for water or the paper. If the hotel simply charged a a higher rate I'd understand, but the having purchased the room in advance at an advertised rate only hit with an add-on upon arriving is bad business!
