This hotel is everything one could ask for. Friendly staff to hold the door open, a 'bonjour' greeting at reception. The room was quite large for Chicago and a robe and slippers await, along with lovely amenities. My bed was so comfy and the rain shower, amazing. There is a subway nearby. It was raining the day i was here,...

This place is right up there with fancy with it's 3 store lobby. A really killer restaurant with all of the white table clothes and everything. This has all of the modern architecture and some cool painting that are on the verge of murals. Our room was just as fancy with a bed that the wife wanted to put in...

My wife bought a Travelzoo coupon so we could spend the night downtown after seeing a show. The lobby area is nice and large with lots of seating. As added security, the elevators require a hotel keycard to go up to any floor. The location was near public transportation, both bus and subway. We took the bus to and from...

Modern nice rooms, everything is clean. Reception was great. Location is convenient and you can easily access the major shopping area. The higher your floor, the more light in the room. Banquette-Catering was excellent.

I have been staying at the Sofitel Chicago Water Tower since it opened and wouldn't consider staying at any other hotel...ever. It is clearly a spectacular property and has a perfect location but it is the people that make my decision very easy when I travel to this fantastic city. Sebastien is extremely professional and takes care of the smallest...

We recently stayed at the Sofitel Hotel in Chicago. We found a great price through Priceline and it was our first time at the Sofitel. We had a very nice stay and it felt like a European hotel staff was friendly and courteous. The room was clean with nice amenities, although it is not as modern as some newly renovated...

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighbourhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
