I was very pleased with my stay at Aloft City Center. There was a group of 4 who stayed here and we were all treated greatly from the moment we walked through the doors. The staff was so kind and was willing to help answer any questions we had. The rooms were very spacious, especially for a hotel in Chicago,...

Great hotel, walk able to all sites in the city, staff was super nice and accommodating, good hotel restaurant, and even had a great little coffee bar and pick up breakfast place. My only issue is they failed to award ANY SPG points. Not for my stay, not my bonus points, we even made a "green choice" the ENTIRE time...

Had an awesome stay. Ryan was fantastic. He went above and beyond with helping us look for a lost item. Room attendant Marta jumped in to help us find the missing item. Loved the room and the view of the city. Thank you!

We were looking for a hotel in Rivernorth. We chose Aloft and were not disappointed. The check-in process was smooth with Ricardo taking care of few things. We got an early check-in and a room on a high floor. Note: room keys are needed to activate the elevator. The room was very clean and with sharp decor. The view was...

I love the Aloft brand. It's always predictably a great room and very well designed with all the amenities I need. I stayed on the 14th floor, and even though I was that high up I could still hear the very loud street noise. It's certainly not the fault of the hotel, as it is in the middle of the...

Aloft is a great choice for business and leisure travelers alike. It is near the loop and within walking distance of many great restaurants and shopping. The gym downstairs works for those that need to get their workout in while on the road.

Stayed at this hotel over the weekend for a little getaway and couldn't have been happier.
