Understated elegance in the Water Tower complex

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

s118502 02/08/2021 TripAdvisor review

Sofitel is one of my favorite hotel brands. The recently renovated Sofitel in Chicago is elegant and refined, without being ostentatious. My husband and I enjoyed our four nights in the Sofitel Magnificent Mile very much, and will be back! Although we are not handicapped, we were given a handicapped room (which is fine). Areas for improvement are all related to the bathroom in the room we stayed: 1. No hooks for towels; there is no where to hang the towels to dry. Please add hooks or towel racks 2. Not enough ledge space in the shower. There was one small ledge that can barely fit a full bottle of shampoo (or the three travel sized toiletries provided by Sofitel). Please add more ledges in the shower 3. Shower door. The glass door doesn't completely seal, so when water hits the glass shower door, it automatically leaks onto the floor (a lot of water gets on the floor - three bathmats to soak up!) Thanks, Virginia

Dear Virginia, Thank you so much for staying with us while you were in Chicago. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We value your feedback regarding our bathrooms and will relay this to our Engineering department for follow up and action. The next time you find yourself in Chicago, we would welcome the opportunity to host you once again. Thank you!

Great stay!

The staff were very professional, accommodating and treated us with dignity and respect! The room was very clean and I felt comfortable and safe!

Staff great, room and general property condition not good.

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Anonymous Families - 29/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Many problems with the room-- bed needs replacement, room safe had to be replaced, coffee maker broken, pillow that should be tossed, not up to usual cleanliness standards upon arrival. Generally the room felt very tired and unattended. Had to request room amenities like slippers, second robe, extra tissue, soap... My on file profile (from years of stays at this hotel) ignored prior to and at check-in such as requesting a room away from service station, ice maker, elevator.

Poor communication from directors to front desk staff

Megan Friends - 29/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We stayed at Sofitel this past weekend for our wedding block. We loved the location of the hotel, suites, food in CDA, and drinks at the bar. We had a few events set up at Sofitel for our wedding guests including an after wedding reception party at the bar & Farewell Brunch, which to our deep regret were not arranged and communicated from Christine to the staff working that weekend. The staff and management seemed to have no insight into the planning and communication between Christine & myself from the past several months. We were very disappointed our events were so poorly executed and how we had to argue with staff members simply to receive the exact things we were promised by Christine. We will not be recommending Sofitel to our many engaged friends planning their weddings this year (and they frankly are not interested in Sofitel after after seeing how each event was so terribly ruined by Sofitel).

Mahsa Couples - 28/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Beautiful hotel with the best staff and location you could want in Chicago. The rooms are very clean, the hotel is in a very nice, safe area conveniently located near all tourist destinations. The rooms are very clean and you can text the hotel for any items or requests. They quickly respond and are all so nice. Best place in Chicago to stay.

Unparalleled customer service!

Mrs. G. Families - 27/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We arrived early and were able to check in to an available suite. While it was on a lower floor, we were grateful for the opportunity to rest. Prior to our arrival, the staff took the time to map out instructions for our arrival via the CTA. The directions were spot on. The location of the hotel is perfect; but what impressed us most was the level of service. Especially, with the housekeeping staff! They were thorough and diligent with their cleaning process, professional, and immediately responsive. In a normal environment, that would be exceptional, but particularly so amid the pandemic. Our suite was blissful! So spacious, clean, and well appointed! Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Housekeeping could be better

Katherine M. Families - 27/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel is nice enough, but for this price and a Sofitel, I expected much, much more. We requested room service for the next day by phone and never received it. The person I spoke with told me he was scheduling it right then while we were talking. When we returned the next day, our room hadn't been cleaned and I left a review regarding that negative experience and called the front desk and asked for a list of items that we needed. No one came so one hour later, I posted a review noting my frustration and the housekeeping supervisor called me and said she would send someone up with what we needed right away. The person sent up only brought a few of the things we requested, plus a handful of Hermes lotion/soap bottles that we didn't ask for and which smell bad. Also, the trash can by the elevator on our floor was overstuffed (with the same trash sticking out of it) the entire duration of our visit (3 days) and never emptied!

Arrived with 3 bellman standing near curb. Not one assisted with luggage until I asked. This has been the case on every stay and has been brought to the attention of front desk during each stay. Dirty glassware , subpar food as exorbitant prices. Accor online and property systems not synced. Paid for upgrade and given room directly across from ice machine. Door banged day and night. Advise front desk only to be told “Sorry”. No effort to move room to address the matter.

Well located, Very accomdating

While there I developed what I thought was acne it seemed to get worse by the day. It became extremely itchy and inflamed. I came home to discover I had bed bug bites on my face. I’m still dealing with the very uncomfortable bites. The hotel was beautiful and staff were great, but the bites made my stay a horrible experience all around.

Good locale
