Our group of four stayed at Hotel 71 for St. Patrick's Day weekend. We chose Hotel 71 based on the positive TA reviews, location, and cost.

Upon check-in, reception was friendly. I arrived at 10:00am and was able to check-in early. Since we were arriving at different times, my friends were given keys to the room upon their arrival. Unfortunately, due to the St. Patty's Day festivities, riverview rooms were not available. Regardless, from the 32nd floor, our view of the city was amazing. As mentioned in previous reviews, the room was huge. Upon our request, housekeeping quickly provided extra towels, glasses, and coffee cups.

While we didn't spend much time in the room, our stay was comfortable. The hotel is in a great location. The Magnificent Mile is within walking distance. Lots of great stores and restaurants in the area. BTW-Sweetwater Tavern and Grill is amazing!

Check-out is normally at noon. Since several of us were running in the Get Lucky marathon, we asked for a late check-out. We were given until 12:30 to check-out.

For a quick getaway, our stay was fine. Just a warning: The elevator was a bit slow.

Enjoyed our stay at hoyel 71 - an older hotel - but with that comes massive rooms.

the location is fantastic. very central and close to everything you would want - amd the bar downstairs has great doos and service.

Staff were verry helpfull and attentive.

Beds and pillows were very comfy.

A few oddities;
* No safe in the room - theres one downstairs in the recpetion for guest to use.
* No bar fridge in the rooms - so while theres tea and coffe facilities you need to send down and pay $8 for some milk to be delivered via roomservice if you like white tea/coffee..


Overall an enjoyable experience.

Went for a weekend getaway in Chicago and stayed at Hotel 71. Great hotel, good rate- went during low travel time but good rate none the less. Decent view from the large window and we didn't go for the riverview which I'm sure is better. Room was spacious, staff were awesome- very helpfull to us out-of-towners. Hotel is nicely loctated in downtown Chicago, we walked to many places even in the winter. I would go back there

Room Tip: The room we had was nice with a good view-32nd floor. The riverview is better but we didn't plan...

Awesome location. within walking distance to everything..... Clean, spacious rooms. I had no view, was on the 14th floor.. Had a view of building behind it... And it didnt make a bit of differance to me.. You are there to sleep, shower etc etc... I had a junior suite, and when i walked in thought i had wrong room, but then you turn a corner and there was a good size room with pull out sofa,,, both rooms had big flat screen tvs... Called for linens at 130 am and they shot them right up.. Check in was a breeze... we got there about 1030 in the morning, and check in isnt until 330... doorman told us to try and he was right.. We got right in... awesome hotel and highly recomend....
