Excellent hotel. Excellent room. Very clean with a great view of the city. By far - the best hotel I've stayed at in Chicago. I also lived in downtown Chicago for 5 years. Excellent top-notch service by all hotel staff.

After 2 days on a train from Portland to Chicago, the Radisson was just what we needed. Luxury and comfort in the spacious rooms. Extremely comfortable and capacious bed. Great bathroom with a bath you could swim in! Staff are friendly and professional. Overall great experience.

I really liked the hotel, the friendly staff and overall great experience. Even though we had to change room the overall experience of the hotel and staff was excellent. The location is perfect right in the middle of the city center.

Architects can't but wonder what the voluptuous sensuality of the building's shape means (other than the foam of waves) for the spaces inside. That's why it's a little disappointing that it actually means nothing. The rooms are quite conventional and, depending on whether or not the...

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
