Stayed in the Radisson Blu Aqua Chicago in April, twice within 2 weeks as I was traveling across Illinois, Minnessota and Michigan with a friend. First, this hotel is superb. Architecture is great and building is new so everything is clean. At check in, we got an upgrade (twice) as I am a concierge member from the club carlson. All the more appreciated that it gives access to a superior rooms where I had a wonderful scenic view. On top of the this, it gave us access to the "lounge".
The lounge is a terrific experience :quality of the food is second to none (croissants, pains au chocolat, etc), it is calm and quiet so very nice to rest and to have a chat. Nice beverage on offer too. The staff is extremely helpful and always on the move to make sure that guests can find what they are after. Clearly, this lounge is a very smart idea !!
Superior rooms are splendid. All clean and spacious. Bed are very comfortable and an iPad is provided.
Check in and check out are quickly done.
We did not try the Italian restaurant. Probably next time.
From all the Radisson I stayed in, the Radisson Aqua Blu Chicago is obviously the best. There is just nothing to complain about and location is great (10 mn away from the "Bean"). I will stay there again next time I am around the area (indeed, I already stayed at the Radisson Blu Aqua last year).
Un petit mot en français: excellent accueil et services irréprochables, le manager est français. Un petit coucou a Chantal, membre du personnel et française avec laquelle nous avons discute lors du check out. Pour les visiteurs venus de l Hexagone, n hésitez pas un seul instant, le Radisson Blu Aqua est magnifique, tout propre, spacieux et le staff est ultra serviable.
