“Spectacular!”
Reviewed 9 August 2012

This hotel is gorgeous, inside and out. Our room was beautiful and spacious with one entire wall as a window. Spa-like bathroom with separate bathtub and shower, and two Frette robes and slippers. Room service dinner was delicious and the service was swift and impeccable. Best of all was the bed though - easily the most comfortable bedding I've had the pleasure of sleeping on. The only downside was having to check-out and return to normal life! Would definitely stay there again...permanently.

Great hotel, as any other Sofitel hotel we stayed before.
The room was very comfortable and the service was excellent (including complimentary chocolate covered strawberries on a birthday date!)
The location is great – central (one block to the Magnificent Mile / Water Tower / John Hancock tower), yet on a quiet street.
The Tempo restaurant which is few steps away from the hotel is great for breakfast - be aware that Saturdays and Sundays is quite busy, you need to register your name with the hostess.
If you are a fan of fancy cars there is showroom right across the street with Lamborghini, Ferrari, Bentley, Rolls, etc.
Le Bar located in the hotel’s lobby is very nice - you can get some “rest” after a day of visiting or shopping.
Overall, a highly recommended hotel for a Chicago vacation.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms are better (and a bit more expensive).

I spent one week last July at this Hotel during a business trip and I didn't wanted to leave. The Hotel is located 2-3 blocks from the Water Tower. You have everything at walking distance: The Magnificent Mile, shops, many Restaurants (facing back from the Hotel on Rush Street).
Rooms are spacious, modern, comfortable, clean and with a big bathroom. It is not usual that I can say "I slept so good in this bed", but this time it happened due to some reason.
The staff was friendly all the time, greeting in French, small brand detail of this Hotel.
I definitely will come back soon.

We stayed there for 2 nights and we found the hotel very nice and clean.
The reception staff very warm and welcoming.Our room was bright and spacious.
We loved big tv in our room and silence in all the building.
The only thing that could imporve according to us is brekafast,but since the position of the Hotel is fantastic who cares for breakfast :-)
