I could go on and on about this hotel but I have to honestly say it is the best hotel we have
ever stayed at in the city!! Just pulling up to the hotel we knew this was going to be fabulous!
From the front doorman-front desk-every single staff member went above and beyond for us
making this such a memorable weekend! We took our 6 year old daughter and we were celebrating our anniversary-we got a plate of chocolates and cookies in our room-sparkling water-that was just such a special touch! Our view from the 17th floor was breathtaking-lake and Navy Pier. Business class room-so gorgeous!! I cannot say enough about the Radisson Blu-they made us feel so special and the hotel is breathtaking and again the staff made it a weekend to never forget-cannot wait to book again this summer!! Thank you all!!!!!!

Room Tip: Ask for 17th floor business class room-awesome view!! And a balcony to boot!

From the moment we arrived, we knew this was going to be a great stay. Gorgeous decor was only topped by the terrific staff - from the doorman to the front desk staff, an amazing house technician, right on through to a personal email from the General Manager following our stay. My wife,toddler, and I travel a lot - for business and pleasure, but Blu Aqua stands apart for exceptional friendliness and willingness to help. The rooms, while not large, are quiet,very comfortable, attractive, and kept spotlessly clean. The mattress and pillows were the right degree of support to ensure a good night's sleep.

Any request we had - whether for a microwave for the baby's formula or getting a recalcitrant computer to connect to the free wifi, someone was always in the room ready to help within just a few minutes. We were within easy walking distance to great shopping and restaurants along Michigan Avenue. We especially enjoyed the outdoor walking track around the third floor of the building, We were delighted with our stay, and it will become our new regular when we are in Chicago.

Room Tip: There are optional upgrades for a few dollars more that I wish I would have known about One gives you a larger, corner room with a balcony, or you can get a room on one of the higher floors. The whole hotel is peaceful - you can't go wrong in choosing a room.

Everything about this hotel is beautiful. I stayed here overnight to attend a seminar downtown and enjoyed every minute I was there. The bar off the lobby was gorgeous, service was terrific and the drinks and apps were great. The room was very, very comfortable. Lovely bathroom. Ordered room service for breakfast the next morning - something I usually don't do - and it was a fantastic way to start the day. I can't say anything bad - staff was very friendly, surroundings were comfortable and beautiful. Will definitely go back - great place to feel pampered.

Room Tip: Can't remember where my room was, but it was on a higher floor and had a pretty view. No issues with noise, inside or out. Very, very comfortable.

Stayed in this hotel for business and thoroughly enjoyed it. Staff was terrific and very friendly. The rooms were modern, clean, and had a cool feel to them. The only iffy thing was the wifi connection, which I found slow from time to time, but it wasn't enough of an issue to knock down the rating at all. The fitness center was huge and offered everything one would need (including a basketball court!). I would definitely recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Something on a lower flow would help you get in and out easier

I spent the better part of the day at the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel for a work project and my experience with Anita could not have been more positive. She was incredibly attentive to all our needs and made sure we were the visit was enjoyable. The views of Chicago from the room (we worked out of) were incredible- we could see the water as well several other landmarks from our room- a quintessential Chicago experience. I highly recommend checking out the Radisson Blu Aqua on your next trip to the Windy City!
