The Godfrey Hotel Chicago

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Beautiful, modern hotel in the River North District. It made a great visit to Chicago even better.

Great experience at this hotel this past weekend. Really nice hotel in downtown Chicago!

Great experience overall! Waking distance to all major tourist attractions, local bars and multiple subway stations. Hotel is modern, everything is new and clean. it also has a great restaurant and a roof top bar. Staff was very friendly and accommodating! I got a room on the 5th floor which was located between an elevator and spa. So it was a bit noisy for me. I requested a room change and they have done it in a matter of minutes! Tyler was super helpful and quick. He also gave me a great room on 11th floor - away from the elevator and with great south views of the city. I was very pleased with service and my overall stay.

Great hotel for the weekend escape! Comfortable room and a quiet good night sleep. Close to everything.

The hotel is chic, clean comfortable and right in the middle of Chicago, walking distance everywhere. would recommend

They were a wonderful group with decently priced meals in the restaurant. Staff was super friendly and perfectly located

Very disappointed! When we arrived to check in, the front desk staff were both busy texting on their cell phones. We stayed for 4 nights, on the second night, we spilled coffee on the sheets and it was not changed the next day, just flipped on the other side without the stain. The lights were not working properly. They would turn on and off throughout the night. The noise from the Urban Roofscape/rooftop bar was unbearable! They are located on the fourth floor and are open until 2:00 am so don't think about falling asleep before then. Very unaccommodating.

Good clean trendy hotel. Rooms were spacious and very comfortable. Staff was very helpful. The nighttime can be loud due to party goers at the lounge but overall a great experience! Good rooftop lounge and happy hour:)

Great stay! Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Always clean quiet and luxurious. I love that I can go to the 4th floor for a drink and a beautiful view of the city or I can stay in the room and enjoy wifi, decent channel selection I would suggest adding a 24 room service but I know hey use the restaurants kitchen downstairs so it makes sense to not have it.

City view is really good. Room is big and comfortable. Also they provide loccitane's shower set.

Such a nice hotel. Great rooms. Super friendly staff. Great location. Nice hotel restaurant and bar area. Would totally stay here again!!

The room we got was very nice. I enjoyed the modern, minimal styling. We had a great view of the city from the 8th floor. The bed was supposed to be a king size but was definitely not (we have a king at home, this bed was smaller). The down pillows were also lumpy and pokey from the feathers (our memory foam pillows at home are much better). It was also easy to hear noise from the hallway. However, the private rooftop lounge was a nice bonus, great atmosphere. We already had dinner plans but there was also a restaurant, Dolce, in building that looked delicious. The location of the hotel is also very convenient, close to many places we wanted to go. Parking at the hotel is pricey, we used spothero and got parking a few blocks away for half the price. The staff were very friendly and we got an later checkout complementary. Overall, I would recommend this for a night or two in the city.

The Godfrey is a wonderful hotel. It's beautiful but not pretentious. The staff was always nice and welcoming. The rooms are stylish and comfortable with great views of the city. We didn't feel like the hotel was far away from anything because everything was either a short walk away, there was a bus stop nearby or a subway station a few blocks away. Whenever we got back to the hotel we felt like we were coming home.

My boyfriend took me to the Godfrey last year for my birthday and we couldn't wait to come back this year. I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else! It is a small, intimate hotel -- not a ton of rooms which I like. It always smells delicious in the lobby and is super clean and stylish when you walk in. Rooms are modern and spacious (I recommend asking for a corner room if you can). The bar on the 4th floor, IO, is wonderful and one of our fav. places as well. Go there for unique cocktails and DELICIOUS brunch/apps/happy hour bites. Overall - this is our favorite place to stay. It is close to many places (walking distance if warm, or a short uber ride). You will not be disappointed!

Hotel was nice in a great location, especially for clubs/nightlife. Hotel even has DJs. Room has clean comfortable rooms with great views. Room was much smaller than expected for a very expensive $260+ suite. Parking is absurdly expensive and not included.

Staff very friendly. Great location! I will definitely go back!

Very happy with our stay. Clean room, great views on the 15th floor, and great staff. No complaints. I would recommend skipping the breakfast though. Pricey and not a huge selection. Try Yolk instead. It's around the corner.

There was nothing major to complain about. The room was nice staff was fine...I guess my main complaint was the amenities. The towels were hard and there was a lamp that didn't work and the heat was on the fritz. There was also a LOT of noise....a random clicking sound in the room and the walls seemed thin. The rest of the amenities were limited and I just expected more for the price. A lot of care was taken for the furniture and building, bUT not much about the rest of what's in the room. If I had to stay here again I wouldn't mind it, but I'd be looking somewhere else first.

From check-in to our departure, our stay at the Godfrey was fantastic. The staff was friendly and accommodating- we even received a complimentary upgrade at check in! Our room was well appointed with a separate living room area, floor to ceiling windows with city views, L'Occitane toiletries (ooh la la!), and a very comfortable king bed. Walk around the corner and you have an abundance of the hottest bars and restaurants in the city, not to mention the in-house rooftop bar, which was super cool in and of itself. We would definitely stay at the Godfrey again!
