Well kept facility in the heart of Hyde Park. Not all amenities available due to Covid

The staff is absolutely amazing. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The food is great. They are very accommodating and friendly. My favorite place to stay when I visit Chicago.

I got to check in early! So grateful my room was ready.

Stylish hotel in heart of Hyde Park. Spacious rooms. Great art.

I love the rooms and the staff is amazing. They are very accommodating and helpful.

I love that it’s in Hyde Park and close to UChicago. It’s new and very deco is very artsy. Room is very spacious and staffs are nice.

Beautiful hotel. Really unique. Lobby fantastic. Rooms amazing - wood floors , wood built ins , beautiful bathroom with enormous shower. Loved listening to retro record player and albums provided!

Boutique with style, close to the University of Chicago.

I stay in a lot of hotels, and so I always appreciate one that stands out from the generic chains. The Sophy does this beautifully, and with the wonderful bonus that what makes it distinctive is its Chicago/Hyde Park focus in art and decor. When you stay at the Sophy, you know where you are. Staff is welcoming and warm, knowledgeable and attentive - from the valet to the front desk to the bar and restaurant. Don't skip the restaurant - it's outstanding...I need to stay at the Sophy again just to get through all the breakfast/brunch items I didn't get to try yet. Our room overlooked one of the busiest corners in Hyde Park, so the sheers and curtains got a workout, but there was no street noise to bother us. The floor to ceiling windows may present a privacy issue, but they also make the rooms light and airy. Small issues: our room had too little drawer space, and the fold out bed was extremely uncomfortable for the teen with us (she ended up sleeping on the couch itself, which she said was fine). Overnight parking is very expensive, but we were able to find street parking on unmetered streets throughout. Looking forward to a return visit!

Brand new! Pleasant place and good loc. Restaurant and bar staff need more work.

Brand new. Lovely. Great art. Fabulous lobby and restaurant. Parking is ridiculously overpriced. Still working out a couple of kinks.
