This is a great hotel! From the design to the guest room amenities, I was impressed. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. This will be my new hotel when going to Chicago for business or pleasure!

This was a spectacular hotel. Great location. Wonderful rooms, great lobby, and wonderful bar/restaurant. Saturday night was enjoyable. Go across the street and see the plaque where Barack Obama first kissed Michelle Obama!

Impeccable. When you stay at The Sophy, it feels like you should be wearing your best satin pajamas to bed... the experience is that luxurious! The hotel is beautiful with incredible touches of art, design and service that blend together to create a feeling of sophisticated ‘specialness’.

We selected Sophy Hyde Park due to its proximity to University of Chicago Hospital and we were delighted with our choice. Thank you to the staff of Sophy Hyde Park for your hospitality. We will definitely be back and recommend your hotel to others.

The Sophy is conveniently loacated in the vibrant Hyde Park neighbored of Chicago. It is new and clean with very friendly staff. This property is very clean and has great service. The location is prime as it is set in historic Hyde Park. Close to world renowned museums as well as Lake Michigan. Highly recommended!!

My family travels to Chicago frequently and we stay in Hyde Park. This was our first experience with Sophy and it was a wonderful experience! I’m already planning my next trip and will certainly be returning to Sophy! This is my new favorite hotel in the Chicagoland area!

Max, the front office supervisor is someone I highly recommend you have a conversation with if you stay here. Mike and Sam were equally as pleasurable speaking with. Definitely my go to hotel in Chicago!

This hotel opened less than two months before our stay. We were celebrating Thanksgiving with a relative who lives in Hyde Park, Chicago, and its location was ideal. While the convenience was important, we were very pleased with the friendliness of the hotel staff and at Meslers, their onsite restaurant/bar. The rooms are stylishly decorated and the bed was extremely comfortable. We'll stay there again the next time we are in Chicago.

Beautiful common spaces, finely appointed rooms (the books and albums are a lovely, homey touch), but most importantly the entire staff, from front desk to bar to restaurant, were kind, cheerful and oh so very helpful. Bravo!!

From the moment I walked into the lobby, I felt like I was in a special place: the beautfiul lobby with centerpiece gas fireplace, the smiles and welcome from staff, the cool jazz from the bar area. There is local art everywhere, including rooms. I loved the modern, yet comfy look of my room, which included a working record player (and record!). The room felt like a quiet sanctuary. Gorgeous bathroom. Lovely hush in the hallways. Finally, the Mesler bar is exceptional. The music is understated (not blasting) and mellow. It seems like a place where lots of patrons know each other, which lends to a friendly, community vibe. Very cool and fun. Excellent service throughout.
