4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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!

Coffee machine broken Shower water not hot Great rooftop bar

Very beautiful hotel, downtown, north side. Very modern. Dance club is busy on Friday and Saturday nights. Room service was very quick. Rental movies are super expensive. ($26) All in all, great experience.

Check-in and room size were all around disappointing. Will not be staying here again.

Of all of the hotels in chicago my husband and I decided to stay at the Godfrey to celebrate our Anniversary. We have two young children and wanted a nice relaxing night to ourselves. We booked a king room on orbitz, but when we checked in we were given a double bed room. We called the front desk and they offered to move us to a suite because they were sold out of king rooms. Our suite wasn't impressive, we had no view and the room was small. The air conditioner made a constant loud noise the entire night that we couldn't sleep. During the middle of the night we could hear the loud music coming from the rooftop lounge. Our quiet night away from home didn't happen the way we wanted it to. As we were leaving our room my husband noticed a bunch of fruit flies on the wall. Half of them looked dead like they had been there a while and nobody had cleaned. Not a good experience!

My husband and I had the pleasure to stay at the Godfrey hotel in downtown chicago. It is a short 10 - 15 minutes ride to many of Chicago's main attractions... such as the Millennium Park with the Field Museum and the Navy Pier. If you dont want to dine at its excellent Dolce restaurant, you can walk to many other restaurants in the neighborhood. GREAT location, Excellent service and staff.

Overall a great hotel. We were unable to stay in our room the first night due to issues with the a/c, but the staff went above and beyond to make up to the inconvenience. They booked us a room at another hotel at no charge, paid for cab ride to and from, gave us $50 credit to use at any of the hotel restaurants, and refunded the charge for the room for that night. Once our stay at Godfrey actually began the next day, everything was fantastic.

Check in was fast and easy. The restaurant down stairs was nice as well. However, I was not aware that I had to pay for parking which ended up being an additional $112!
