Receptionionisterne var virkelig til stor hjælp på mange forskellige måder. Da min kuffert blev væk og til at hjælpe med at finde ting i byen
Venligt og effektivt personale i receptionen,velbeliggende,nem adgang også i bil Vi havde en ekstra opredning på værelset, men der manglede puder ,håndklæder også efter at vi gjorde opmæeksom på det.
Udemærket hotel, dog nogle sure personale
beliggenheden At værelset er klart til chek in kl 15 som lovet. At sengene bliver redt - selvom man har efterladt hhv nattøj og en bog på sengen. At håndklæderne ikke har gamle snavsede pletter.
Check ind og ud nemt og hurtigt, morgenmad hurtigt, bad og udsigt, værelse størrelse og udsigt
Der var god service. De skal ikke skrive, at der er shutleservice til lufthavnen, når det ikke er tilfældet.
Glasses which were used and kept aside for replacement were again kept in the same position for usage. they were not replaced just like any other utilities. overall very nice place
Great location for walking to a concert at soldier field Waited line for 30 minutes to check in and that was for the Hilton Honors pre-checks. Regular check in line was likely 45 minutes+. Keys to our room didn't work. Had to wait in line another 30 minutes for new keys. When we returned at midnight from TS concert and tried new keys they did not work either. Waited 45 minutes for security to open door with 3 small exhausted children. After calling 4 times for security and no luck I finally spoke to a manger and he came and let us in. Was supposed to put new keys under door overnight that was not done. Never received a working key the entire stay. Needless to stay they comped my room. I still had to pay the ridiculous $69 for parking. We will not being staying here again.
Great Location and staff. Booked direct with Hilton for same price with a better cancellation policy and free WIFI for HHonors guests. Plenty of parking around hotel (spothero.com)
I loved the location of the hotel. It was close to all that o came to town for. Plus the view from my room was spectacular! It was very easy to get a taxi, as the doorman did it for me. The staff was so helpful and friendly. Definitely will be returning on my next trip to Chicago! The only real complaint I can make about the hotel is the Herb n Kitchen on the main lobby floor. They claim to serve Starbucks which they do, but it tastes nothing like the real thing. The ingredients in my frap started to separate-- pretty sure te syrup was expired. But other than that, the rest of the hotel was amazing. I look forward to future stays there.
My hotel was right acros from the park..a short walk from the museum and aquarium, as well as a ferry to the pier! The room was clean and large, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The lobby was beautiful! Hotel also has a large pool..was over all very impressed, would stay again on a return visit! That I had to leave!
need upgrade. Wall paper in bathroom peered off. Mattress was uneven and too soft. Too dark in the room even in the daytime.
Beautiful view and rooms Rooms got hot at night and had to shower to feel better about it
The location is good: close to subway, next to park, easy to get food to eat. I thought this is a 4-star hotel. When I saw the entrance of this hotel, it looks like 4-star. But when I got into the room, I thought I was in a 2-star Inn. The coffee maker is dirty, full of dust. The computer is not working and not able to off screen. The decoration of the room doesn't look like 4-star. Also, when the guest at next room used the bathroom, the loud "boom" sound would shock you. The WiFi is only free at lobby. The speed is really slow. When I refused to pay $30 for upgrade room with WiFi, the staff looked not happy. My teen girl was very disappointed for her trip to Chicago. She always wants to stay in hotel but this time she didn't want to stay longer.
The amenities were great. I was given a larger room than expected with a nice (but not lake) view. The location was great and all staff were friendly and helpful. My room was quiet and the bed was very comfortable. My room was also very clean and the tv had a lot of channels. Also, the building and common areas are absolutely gorgeous. I loved the gym facility and going for a swim after a stressful day. My only complaint is that there was a lot of loosely supervised young kids at the pool at 9pm. Would be nice if they had some hours for adults only.
A Very Walkable City with wonderful waterfront area and Great Food at Lou Malnati's and Gene & Georgetti. Museums, Aquarium, Planetarium, Soldier Field, Jazz Clubs and Great Restaurants...Everything is centrally located in and around Grant Park which is right across the street from the HILTON CHICAGO. The bed pillows were AWFUL! mushy and no support. A minor point, that would NOT prevent me from staying there again. My biggest CON was the cost of parking $56/day (self park) or $70/day (valet), for the cost of the room it should be included. Also in-room WiFi is an additional charge, should also be included.
Loved the Luxurious Amenities this hotel offers. Our room was comfortable, cold, and dark. All we needed was a fan to soothe me to sleep and upon calling the front desk, they delivered a fan to our room. Only negative I have is that our room had poor lighting. I'm a makeup artist so lighting is key for anyone to put on makeup, let alone a professional makeup artist like myself. Upgrade the lighting please!!
Large lift lobby, never needed to wait for lifts Exorbitant price for outdated facilities. Extra charge for gym use, for 2-hour checkout extension, poor Wi-Fi coverage, HHonors login doesn't match room reservation detail. Do your wallet a favour and stay elsewhere.
Everything... not the room i asked for... was lied too. telling me things would be the same and werent... not even close. will not use again.
Great last minute room rate. Odors in lobby and hallway. Exhaust problems from kitchen.
We loved the location, the room and the view- just didn't like being next to the elevator. Other than that- it was great!!
staff super professional and freindly location is great rooms are great price to valet parking "free" WIFI in rooms, weak
Wedding with loud DJ two floors above us kept us up one night. We called the desk and they seemed like they couldnt have cared less about our concern
Great people! Helpful and personal service. We requested a river view room (def worth the extra $$!) and were surprised with an amazing corner room with the greatest views! This location is better than staying up in the Mag Mile area if you plan on seeing the sights. Short walk to Millenium Park, Art Institute, and the L. And you are right at the base of the Mag Mile. Loved being on the river more than I can say! The room was clean and comfy, not a five star hotel but a very acceptable four star. The restaurant/bar is not wonderful, but we don't go to Chicago to eat in the hotel. The shower had one of those fancy yet totally impractical giant shower heads that comes down from the center of the ceiling. A trend that needs to go away.
It was nice and in a great location They gave me a single king room with no view but I payed for a double queen with a view and even paid extra for a view room and then just gave us a free meal that sucked
One of the better exercise areas I've seen in a hotel. A shop downstairs for incidentals (especially water) would be nice, instead of having to walk to the nearby Seven Eleven.
Loved the view from our room. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Some of the bellhop men could be more friendly but besides that it was a very amazing stay for our family!
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Wonderful room! At least 2 ice machines were not operational.
I stayed here for business and also leisure. I chose this hotel based off of location and it was perfectly placed near all of the great tourism spots in the city. I walked everywhere all weekend, which is a great way to burn off all the delicious food Chicago has to offer. The view from the room of the city and the Chicago river is spectacular. The hotel staff was extremely nice, accommodating and the rooms were very clean. The parking fee to keep your car there during your stay is astronomical. We received a note card saying we get a "free gift" for staying there in our room the first morning we were there. When we turned it in, it was a free vacation only if you were over 28 and married and your spouse was staying with you, which I didn't qualify for as my spouse was at home. Because of that, I received one drink with an appetizer purchase (so not a free gift if you have to buy something ) at the hotel resturant. I think gimmicks like this are insulting and a waste of the guests time.
I loved that we had a mini sofa in our room. I would have liked a mirror outside of the bathroom - 4 people had to share one mirror for hair, makeup etc.
Central beliggenhed med god udsigt over Michigan Ave. Luksusværelses med rigtig god plads. På 23. etage fred og ro: overhovedet ingen støjproblemer. Manglende orientering om tilkørsel og parkering og manglende orientering om bruttopris (inkl. tax, tip, parking)
God central beliggenhed, stor veludstyret lejlighed/ værelse til rimelig pris
Perfekt beliggenhed. Nej
The room was perfectly sized and extremely comfortable. Not a single thing.
Very modern hotel. No pool
location (1) the fact we provided them a different credit card to charge my bill and they said they were good and then I get my statement and they charged the original card after they said it wouldn't be charged. (2) the lines to check out were long and it took us over 20 minutes to just check out. (3) we were not made aware of the wine hour when everyone else we spoke to was. Overall experience was not the best and the purpose of our visit was to find location venues for an upcominng tradeshow - I think if we would have made them aware we would have been treated much better.
no free coffee
The staff was rude and disrespectful. The staff.
Everything was great!
The 5:00 PM wine hour and the interesting decor. Most of the furniture in the lobby was cool looking but not comfortable to sit on.
I arrived early morning and was so glad to be checked in and didn't have to wait until mid afternoon. The cleanliness of the hotel was great. The staff was most accommodating. The on site restaurants were very good.
Some may not like the smaller rooms (especially baths) but this is a very nice boutique hotel. They have done an excellent job of refurbishing a grand old building and the ambience captures the imagination. We loved it and would stay again for the good rate we got through booking.com No coffee machines and no coffee in lobby, but a coffee shop on the corner that was open at 5am.
Located right in the Loop of Chicago, this hotel is only 2 blocks from the Blue Line train from the airport. Free WiFi if you are a Kimpton Rewards member (or if you sign up during your stay). Free wine social hour every night from 5-6pm. You also get a minibar credit if you are a rewards member before you check in. The front entrance was a little odd - the lobby is up on the floor above and not well marked. The view out the window in my room was a brick wall.
Close to the El; convenient
The location of Silversmith is just great and the room we had was simply huge. Being an "old" hotel the atmosphere was cosy and warm with an interior decorated to match but still Silversmith is equipped with all the facilities you would expect from a modern hotel
Large room; very clean; excellent location Lack of countertop space in bathroom
Breakfast no flexibility, no helpful staff
Great service and attention to detail. Very guest oriented and helpful. $50 for overnight parking.
Very caring/warm/genuine staff. Outstanding view of park from room. Great breakfast in room and "rainfall" showerheads were very relaxing. A bit away from the shopping but they have a Bentley to help with transport. Could not secure a late check-out but hotel was fully booked so this was understandable.
A beautiful hotel in an excellent location. The best service I have ever experienced in a hotel. The room was large and beautiful. Excellent beds - I slept really well. Overall a great experience!
large suite good for family Location far from restaurants, other popular spots. Shower drain did not work and overflowed requiring multiple staff visits. Long waits for elevators. Room adjacent to elevator. Not generally up to character of other Fairmont hotels.
The fancy coffe pot in the room. Just simply give me a Mr. Coffe machine that is a no brainer. We also stayed in the room when we had to switch the clocks back. No way, no how could we figure out how to move the time back one hour. Stupid things, but iratating.
Great location. Morning coffee and afternoon wine. The room was too dark. There is inadequate lighting. Pillows were feather but far too soft.
We enjoyed the wine reception and the taste breakfast in the adjecent restaurant. The hotel is located right in the heart of Chicago and pleasantlly quiet. The hotel does not provide slipers.
This is a very nice and comfortable hotel. Rooms are nicely decorated and the bed was excellent. Also free WiFi. I will definitely book this hotel again on one of my business trips to Chicago.
Location was central to everything and the staff was very helpful. Toilet paper was really poor quality. Minor problem with the bill that was quickly settled.
Stylish, friendly staff, good location. Lovely L'Occetaine toiletries, but putting bath products (those bath "bombs") for sale in the bathroom is tacky. Either offer them as an amenity or don't put them out at all. Same with the "animal" socks. Hotel rooms aren't department stores. Coffee in the lobby was excellent. It would be nice if you could add a small selection of rolls or muffins to complement the coffee. And it would be great if the coffee service was offered until noon or even later. Asked for and received a quiet room. However, the trade off was a room overlooking a service roof/steakhouse sign, with no view of the beautiful city of Chicago. I would imagine a quiet room can be had without sacrificing a city view. Don't double glazed windows block out noise? The room was dark because of the lack of natural light and somewhat depressing. Prior to my visit I joined the Kimpton club, but the front desk had no record of my membership. Membership is supposed to offer a number of benefits, including preferred newspaper delivered to the room, but I only received the requested ny Times one day out of the three I stayed at the hotel. Pad and pen (I took them with me when I went out) were not replaced during my stay
Very comfortable, nice different decoration, excellent service, personnel, complimentary wine between 5-6pm. Few blocks from Billy Eliot's musical (must see!). Great restaurant close by, Catch 35! Nice walk to Mgnif. Mile. Allow 1 hour to airport due to traffic. nothing
Very friendly and helpful staff. Large and comfy rooms. Beautifully designed entry way. Wine hour at 5pm was great. Close to shopping, restaurants and museums. Ended up with a room that had absolutely no view. Room cleaning could have been better, but nothing gross. Those two things made the $190 plus tax per night room a little too expensive.
Great, attentive staff. Terrific location by the river. Comfortable bed. Lobby Door staff was extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming. Expensive for what you get. Room a/c is on energy saving computer load management, so it can take ten minutes to respond. River view 7th floor deluxe king Room had one uncomfortable arm chair, and a tiny sliver of a window that allowed one to see the bridge over the river, but, no water or boats. Exercise room was a joke, just A universal and dumbells. Free morning coffee a plus, but offset with tiny cups and mediocre coffee blend. Free evening wine was nice, but unlike far less expensive embassy suites, no snacks offered.
Great location and a very good hotel overall No tea or coffee facilities in the room.
Everything..great fluffy pancakes at breakfast I love this hotel.For some reason when I checked in they thought I had requested an adjoining room (I did not)and did not have me scheduled for a room with 2 beds that I had reserved. However they did some juggling and gave me the type of room I had requested.
Excellent location, clean comfortable room, polite helpful staff, free wine & snack every evening.... Nothing
Rooms were big and spacious, on state street and walking distance to Michigan Avenue and very popular for their restaurants. Housekeeping were take time to clean the rooms, I would go out from morning and come back and the room was still not cleaned.
One of the best hotels in Chicago. Ideal location to everything in the city, wonderful staff and service, Roof Top Bar is excellent. Overall best hotel experience I've had in Chicago.
Great location to everything in the city! You can walk to the Riverwalk which has so many things to do! very clean hotel and staff is so so accommodating and welcoming! The bed was very uncomfortable! Had a huge dip in the middle of the mattress! Other than that no complaints
The room was very comfortable, pretty and sexy:) I loved the skybar, and the gym. My only concern was the noise factor from the train and a clock that kept going off outside.
Quite pleasant and well situated.
The room was clean and interesting and the hotel well situated in the heart of things. Concierges were particularly accomodating. The rooftop lounge- to which guests get priority access seemed 'the' place to be at night The business centre ( internet access and printers) was painfully frigid and the computers not user friendly.
great location, service, & facility
The fridge didn't work so the brought up a dented scratched fridge and set it in the middle of the room. The room was not clean. No hospitality. Way over priced!!!!
beautiful room, great amenities, very clean and modern some confusion at the front desk when checking in but it seemed to only be us
I couldn't reccommend this hotel enough. The staff are friendly and helpful, the location is cental to shops and restaurants, the hotel itself is very trendy while the rooms are very welcoming. And you get a warm cookie upon arrival - what more could you want! The "nature" sounds that are piped into the corridors - nice touch, but they woke me every morning!
Extremely convenient for getting to the Chicago Theatre.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is great Yeah, the housekeeping time were at different hours during our stay. Sometimes early sometimes later in the day. it would have been nice if the bathroom/toilet had been sealed to show they have been sanitized.
The staff were all very helpful and friendly, especially the woman at the front desk when we checked in. The location was excellent for walking and conveniently situated to mass transit. It was all pretty okay.
Staff was great, very knowledgeable and quick to give recommendations and directions. Breakfast had a lot variety and protein and fresh fruit options. Walls were thin, I heard a conversation in the next room at 11pm. Also WIFI access was too complicated to log in from a smartphone that I gave up since I had very limited time in Chicago.
The room was comfortable and large enough to have a small sitting area. I liked the extra high ceilings because the room felt much larger than the floor space. The beds were comfortable and the furniture in good condition. There was a complementary coffee and tea bar in the lobby with fresh fruit and sometimes cookies. This was a nice stop over before heading back to the room. The breakfast closes on the dot at 10am. This isn't convenient because younger people (I'm 28 years old) like to sleep in a little later. I prefer to get going around 10 or 11am. This is a simple fix, extend the breakfast hours by an hour. I'd like to see more plants indoors at this hotel because the city starts to wear on me after a while and getting a fix of nature is relieving.
The hotel was well located for our purposes--within walking distance of shopping and many attractions. The room was clean, the bed comfortable, and staff efficient. Breakfast was the typical Hampton Inn fare which is good quality geared to a wide variety of tastes and preferences. The facility was an older building that had been retrofit. Our room was a little smaller than other Hampton's. This hotel is probably better suited to a couple than to a family with younger children. But it was efficient and did the job. Décor was funky and different which can work either way depending on perception. Overall, the space worked for us.
Location, cleanliness, staff. Its a minor thing, but choices of pillows are too thick for side and stomach sleepers. Parking expense.
I appreciated the modern design of the room and the comfort of the bed. It was quiet and yet we were merely a walk away from everything that we were interested in seeing/visiting. I wish that I did not have to call from overseas just to confirm my reservation. The front desk personel reserved a nice room for us and made sure that we were not bumped from our room. I had to confirm 30 hours prior to our arrival since I was flying in from overseas and not arriving until 7p. This hotel is also fully non-smoking which was GREAT for me! The breakfast could be better. Once they ran low on food, they did not replenish.
The staff was very friendly and the room was very clean and well appointed. The location is also very close to many of the attractions that we were seeking out. within walking distance of Millennium park and Navy Pier.
Location, rooms, breakfast
All of above. Check in very easy. Felt safe needing key to elevator upper floors. Great breakfast. Staff warm welcoming very helpful. Found an empty Jack Daniels fifth bottle under bed. Not ours.
The location of this hotel was great. We were in walking distance to everything we wanted to see. Valet and front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Housekeeping service was very good. The food at the continental breakfast was great, and varied from day to day. The only thing that could be improved is the breakfast area. Where the food is served is very congested and there are not many tables.
The room was very clean and the bed was awesome. I liked the color choices for the room.
Having managed a hotel myself previously, I was pleased with how friendly, helpful, and quick the staff were in their attention to guests. Very clean and welcoming.
I like the location the best. Breakfast was ok but maybe offer more choices. Room had a mold smell and door locks were very loud when closing.
Free breakfast in the morning. The eggs were questionable though. My toilet didn't work.
I booked a room in Chicago at the Swissotel for two nights and after reading the horror stories about kayak bookings through getaroom, I was a bit apprehensive. Based on my travel plans and circumstances, I was able to risk it and make other lodging plans if necessary, so I risked the inconvenience of whatever troubles getaroom might cause me. Fortunately, I did not run into any troubles at all and had a wonderful stay at a luxurious hotel that is in a great location. I received all the service and privileges of a normal stay at the Swissotel. No complaints.
Nice views from the room and the fitness center. Very clean and quiet despite how busy the lobby was with guests! Low, popcorn ceilings really make the room feel more like a motel than a high-rise! The room was a bit outdated overall. Also the location was not super easy to access on foot - ended up taking more cabs than we would have liked.
Location was great for Michigan Avenue shopping as well as Shedd Aquarium, Museums, and Navy Pier. The pool and hot tub were great. The water temperature was perfect for kids. The view was excellent from the top floor, which is where the pool/fitness area is located. Rooms were comfortable and quiet. Elevator system was easy. The overall design of the hotel was a bit unique and differentiated from other Chicago 4 Star + choices. We valet parked the car. When you leave, you go down to the parking garage to exit. The corner to drive out and up the ramp is super tight . I ended up scraping my back door pretty substantially. It was operator error for sure. I would just caution others to be careful as they leave or ask one of the valet guys who do this all the time to drive it through the corner.
Beds super comfy; Felt like I was staying at a spa; Staff super friendly and helpful; beautiful view of the river and partial skyline; GPS kept wanting to take me to the closed parking garage underground; Had to ask other hotel valet down there how to get up top to my hotel (not hotel's fault). Valet expensive ($70), but guess it's the norm for Chicago.
Loved the location; we were able to walk everywhere and taxis were plenty if we needed them right outside hotel. very courteous staff and everything was impeccable. thanks!
We did not expect a room with a view but we got one and it was amazing! The rooms were also very large and we were able to walk everywhere we needed to go. We were right beside the elevators so we heard them often but we got used to it. At first if just sounded like a plane flying overhead until we figured it out but it was no where near a deal breaker for booking again.
The beds were very comfortable. Great Location. The workout facility, pool and whirlpool were better than most hotels I've stayed. Great service as well, I would stay again! $70 Valet fee
Love the location near River & Lake Michigan. River walk has so much to offer right outside the doors. Walkable to most major attractions. Just off from the crowds of Michigan Ave. This is our 4th time and always my first choice when visiting Chicago.
The room was nice - great view. Chair could have used an ottoman but actually had good magazines to enjoy while relaxing in the room. Keurig coffee in room, which is always nice to have. Hotel was busy during our stay, but the room was quiet. The check in process was poorly organized and there were not enough people at the concierge desks to handle the number of guests. Overall I found the staff to be less than helpful and not particularly friendly. Our room wasn't ready until after 4 - and they were supposed to text or call when it was ready and they never did. We booked the hotel for a weekend get-away and not sure we'd go back.
It is in a nearly ideal location near Michigan Avenue, shopping, restaurants, etc The audiovisual support for my meeting was abysmal
It was in a pretty great location and all of the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The rooms were well kept and comfortable, though do need a bit of updating. We did not receive a very warm welcome upon driving up to the hotel. It took us a minute to find a valet and a bellhop.
