We loved the hotel but the parking wasn’t good. Too many people trying to park at the same time. We were arriving for a wedding but the check in went smoothly. I loved the views of Chicago. The rooms were clean and comfortable!

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Karen Business - 24/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Raquel greeted me and was amazing the entire time I was there. Two gentlemen stood out, and I can't find their names for some reason...I wrote them down. One was an African American gentleman that had great designer glass frames. The other was a young African American bellman. Both were friendly, helpful and remembered me each time I ran into them. I travel regularly and know the challenges the hotels are experiencing. Getting coffee in the morning was slow, but I understand. My issue was that there was no way to get a croissant heated up without the gentleman going downstairs to do it. With the line, I would never ask him to do that. It made for a rather yucky breakfast. I couldn't eat any of the sandwiches for different reasons. My only other challenge was when I tried getting 2 separate bills because I was paying for two rooms. I needed to have them separated to make it easier to expense. The short version is, I didn't get what I needed. The gentleman was very nice, but couldn't seem to provide what I needed. In the end, I had to spend quite a bit of time submitting the reports in a way they would pay. I was there for EScrap. The staff in the exhibit hall were amazing. I'm a Titanium Marriott member and this was my first experience with your brand. I enjoyed it. Thank you for having such a great team. I ate at The Palm several times and the guys at the bar were incredible. Thank you... Karen

Fantastic View & Friendly Service!

Customer review rating 5.0/5

Maxie M. Business - 23/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I had a room on the 7th floor with a fantastic view of the city and the water. The service at every level was amazing - the restaurant, the front desk, the person who delivered my luggage once the airline found it and the wait staff that serviced the conference. One day at lunch, we had asked if there was tea. One of the waiters left the area to brew us a glass of tea! I would never have asked if I knew he had to go to that much trouble but it was so kind of him. Everyone was friendly and helpful throughout our stay!

Dear Maxie M., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Swissôtel Chicago. It is always a pleasure to receive positive feedback. I will share your comments with our team.

Ridiculously expensive for the experience.

Customer review rating 1.5/5

Brent Business - 23/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The handle to both the shower stall and the toilet were barely attached. The overhead light in the bathroom flickered on and off and not as a result of needing to be screwed in tighter(I tried that). We were told that housekeeping comes every two days. We were there for four, they never came so we had to repeatedly ask for more water and towels. Lastly, we ordered a hamburger, chicken salad and a 12 ounce Coke from the kitchen and got charged over $70. That is absolutely outlandish. We are well travelled and have spent plenty of time in other large cities like New York and Los Angeles and have never seen prices that high.

I had requested a king bed. Got a double even though I said I would wait for a king. Housekeeping rang the door at 8:30 and left before I could answer and never came back.

Enjoyable stay!

Business Stay With a Dash of Fun

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Mike Business - 23/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I stayed here November of 2021 for a conference that was hosted within the hotel. The hotel was very nice and clean. The staff I had interactions with were both helpful and friendly. I would say this facility was an upgrade from the previous year it was held, nothing against the previous year but this seemed like exceptional a conference area for a hotel. My room was clean, it had a great work space, comfortable bed, and a great view of the lake and river. The room would be perfect for a couple on vacation. The location was amazing, two blocks from Michigan Ave, the river walk across the street, Chicago First Lady river cruise 2 blocks, Navy Pier 15 min walk, Millennium Park 10 min walk, Soldiers Field 30 min walk, 4 blocks to the L, and very close to all the museums. It was a 20 min ride to The University of Chicago and Wrigleyville, and about 30 minutes from O'Hare. It's a great location to explore Chicago and if you've never been there before stay here. My only complaint is I had to take my garbage down the hall everyday to have it emptied, probably because of Covid but that wasn't explained at check-in. I would absolutely stay here again for business or pleasure.

Basics missing and power outlets not working

Customer review rating 2.0/5

Remi Business - 23/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I was really excited to have a short business trip to Chicago and especially staying at Swissotel. Everything went well up until I needed the basics like shampoo and shower gel, I am not sure if you provide it like all other hotels, which I assume but was completely missing from my room. And then after driving for almost 6 hours, I was at least going to have a cup of coffee, then I realize that power outlets do not have any power.... well life goes on with a cup of coffee somewhere in downtown Chicago.
