My wife and i have just had a 4 night stay at the Sofitel Chicago, it was fantastic, great location all staff were very friendly curteous and professional, the Conceiage were particularly helpful, the rooms were both spacious and spotlessly clean. We would both return again without doubt.

Close to everything if you want to get out. Pretty much everything you need if you want to stay in. We had a wonderful meal in their restaurant. Wish they would accept larger dogs on their pet policy - we would go back more often.

The hotel is strategically located in downtown Chicago. If you're into shopping, it is right is the middle so you can explore.

The hotel is beautiful. But, there is no free wi-fi in the rooms. A few computers with free internet access are available on the third floor. Also, the long distance phone rates are unreasonable. I made a 2 or 3 minute call that cost about $10.

The Sofitel was amazing. The room was spotless, massive LCD tv, great desk, very fast internet, great views, and amazing amenities. My wife loved the french soaps they supply, and the robes and slippers. I loved the breakfast in bed, the food was amazing. Definately a cool vibe as well in the lobby bar and restaurant. I will definately be staying again. I actually liked that it wasn't right on Michigan Ave, as there was no road noise as I was only on 11th floor.

The location and service is good, and the decoration is contemporary and stylish. The only exception is that when the internet connection to my notebook did not work, the hotel could only offer technical support from possibly India, and the telephone line was not audible. It took several tries, and the problem could not be rectified. I was later directed to use the PC at the business centre, and this did not become a major issue.

Excellent location, helphull staff, clean and modern rooms, small but well designed fitness center. Five-stars breakfast, it's worth to have a lunch or a dinner in the restaurant. On the "could be better" side, the rooms couls be bigger, the bar is not terrific (don't ask them for a mojito, they have probably never seen a real one) and easily crowded. A bit motre space (and a window...) in the fitness center would help and there is no spa in the hotel. Overall, the hotel offers a slightly different atmosphere compared to the usual 5* and 4* in Chicago and I would probably come back during my next trip to Chicago.

Wonderful Views of Chicago. Very comfortable room. Great Bar. Very close to the "magnificent mile" for shopping. Overall, a most enjoyable place to stay.
