We have some stayed at this hotel for the past three years and the service has been exemplary! Antwonne, our amazing concierge remembered us and not only did he bring us a complementary bottle of wine upon check-in, but walked us to dinner! Love!

Hotel's Favourite
From the minute we arrived, the hotel staff was very accommodating and friendly. They checked us in many hours early and upgraded our room to a suite for our family of four. The hotel is in a great location for walking to sites such as Millennium Park, Navy Pier, and Michigan Avenue. Not to mention the hotel’s very stylish, modern decor. Thank you Sonesta!

The staff was friendly and very attentive and responsive to our inquiries and greeting us when we came and went. The concierge Antwonne was very kind to our 4yo son and engaged with him every time we saw him. My son loved the engagement. Location is walkable to many restaurants and the red line. Would recommend.

Wonderful family getaway in the heart of Chicago! Great location near all the good things! But I will say the two doormen were a highlight! They were so friendly and gave our 8 yr old knuckles each time we came in and out! It really made us feel welcome!

Antwonne was amazing and was a good greeter and super helpful and friendly to our children! The room was pretty spacious for our two little children. The pool was amazing. The fitness center was pretty small but also quiet.It is downtown so it is pretty congested and fast paced. Parking wasn’t the best, far and pricey but once you’re in, you can walk to a lot of different places.
