Upon arrival it was my pleasure to be taken care of by Brianca, she was very sweet, helpful, and accommodating! Fast check in, pleasant experience. Viktor at the bar was the best! Very great at making surprise cocktails. Great room and perfect location. Highly recommend.

Hotel's Favourite
My family came to Chicago to spend 4 nights with our daughter who lives in Chicago. She moved there in 2019 before Covid hit in 2020, and this is the first time we were able to visit. She chose the Chicago Arlo (Hotel Julian when we booked) because of the location, boutique hotel and great reviews! We loved the Arlo!! It is so chic, great rooms, and outstanding staff. We were there a little early and were greeted by Carina at the front desk. She absolutely made our stay a perfect vacation!!! She is so kind, efficient and has a great sense of humor. She made sure that every little thing was taken care of for us as well as all the guests staying there. I had requested a lake or park view, and she explained that the room that has 2 queen beds were built in the inner part, and there was no view in those rooms. That was fine! The bathroom was so spacious and made it easy for us to get ready in the am and again before going out for the evening. “About Last Knife” Restaurant was very upscale, and the food we had was delicious! We had breakfast there two mornings, and had the charcuterie board appetizer twice while we enjoyed nice wine and drinks during “Happy Hour.” Carina also told us about great places to visit, tour, shop and dine in the area. We enjoyed the city so much because of the special hospitality that was extended to us! We flew out late Friday night. We were able to leave our bags there while we enjoyed one more museum and had a delicious dinner before leaving for the airport. All staff members were gracious and seemed to truly enjoy what they do. This is hard to find now after Covid, and the Arlo offers all the niceties of days gone by. We had such a wonderful experience and look forward to returning soon!!

The Arlo is in a great spot on Michigan Ave with some rooms having views of Millennium Park. Union Station is a 20 minute walk or a 5 minute cab ride. We had four rooms which varied from two queens to one king and each room was spacious and well furnished. If we plan to travel downtown Chicago again, we will start our hotel search with the Arlo.

The Arlo was so good we rebooked for it! We were having some difficulties with other booked hotels and looked into the Arlo. Nakila at the front counter was so kind and excited to help out. She informed us of the numerous amenities and beautiful construct of the hotel. Definitely check this hotel out for a great stay!

Nakila was amazing. She really helped us find a great room. The last hotel we were at was horrible and we were stuck trying to find a hotel. She worked quickly and got us in as soon as she could. We love the room. The hotel is really nice and updated. No complaints.

I have booked this under a VIP Access via Hotels.com and yet my experience was no near-VIP. The confusion during the check in was a low notch disappointment, cramped without any explanation. The changing of my room number, the pre check in “thing”. They don’t seem to be organized and no endorsements were made prior to my arrival even if Hotels.com agent already called them. To sum it up, it was poor, underwhelming and apparently not suitable to be recommended.
