The hotel was average. Mostly friendly staff, minus one encounter. We spent extra on the corner double queen so our kids could have fun with the “camp aloft” promoted online. That was not as advertised…the mattress were random sizes and deflated by morning, no starry light or cookies/milk for the kids. Kids ended up in our beds, but wasn’t worth complaining about after one rude staff member at front desk. There was no housekeeping, so room wasn’t cleaned. Toiletries were low in the room and felt a bit old/dingy. Great location and Beatrix was great for breakfast, but for price, not really worth it.

Really comfy bed, relatively quiet, in a hopping neighborhood. Unexpectedly enjoyed being stuck in Chicago on a layover. I had to book while at the airport, took the blue line in, and walked the few blocks from Clark/Lake. It was Friday night, so all the restaurants were open and humming, and there was a nice vibe on the street. The restaurant in the hotel, Beatrix, actually looked really inviting, but I didn't try it. The next day it was packed. Overall, great experience in a disastrous trip. Never fly through O'Hare if you can help it!

Great Hotel with a very familiar atmosphere, good quality, and high prices. The room is very nice and clean. We suggest this place for a nice stay. You will find modern furniture and a great view of Clark Street. As you can see from the pictures.

I had the pleasure of a brief stay at the aloft. I had a clean comfortable room on the second floor which originally concerned me might be noisy, but wasn’t at all. The late night and early morning staff were pleasant and attentive. The convenient location to the red line made departure even easier.

The room is great and the hotel is clean with a great vibe. But the most wonderful reasons for our review are Kenny and Joanne at the front desk. They are so welcoming, friendly and helpful. They totally made our stay. I wish we could stay longer!

The hotel is clean, comfortable, and in a great location for exploring Chicago. The room was a little oddly laid out but was still good. Very comfortable bed. The hallways and common areas were a bit dark -- not in a bad way, just in the vibe they were going for. Everyone we talked with at the front desk was amazingly friendly and professional -- they made this place stand out. Note that parking is in a garage about 2-3 blocks away so if you have a lot of luggage, it's worth dropping it off at the hotel before parking.

What great location, in the heart of my great restaurants , this hotel has a nice bar area and open lobby for business meetings. My room was very spacious with a modernized shower and comfortable bed. The morning breakfast was very good. Will be back.

Great hotel in a perfect location. We stayed here with our family and we were actually scheduled to be at the Fairfield Inn next door. I made a huge mistake and accidentally booked the wrong date. The manager on duty at Fairfield was so helpful and got us in at Aloft. The properties are both owned by same company and they work together really well. Throughout our 4 night stay, I saw multiple staff members working at each hotel. This really helped make our stay smooth and enjoyable. The rooms have great views and the service was spot on. Some elevator issues, but they gave options to use the other towers. We would definitely come back to this complex in the future. Thank you!
