Stayed 3 nights in July and could not have been more satisfied. Excellent location just a short walk from Michigan Avenue, trendy design and great service. The spacious corner rooms are highly recommended. Will definitely stay here again.

Sofitel is very conveniently located just a couple blocks from michigan avenue. The staffs were very polite and friendly. This is supposed to be a 4 star hotel but I would give a 3.5. I wasn't too impressed with the decoration and quality of furniture. And it was too dark. I found a deal online so overall it was pretty good for the money. However, I am not sure if I would come back for a regular rate. The only problem I had was the bed. I use a firm mattress at home and the bed was way too soft and I had a back pain. Oh, the room was a bit too small but i liked the L'OCCITANE bathroom products.

This Dentist from Denver spent a great weekend in Chicago at the Water Tower. It has a perfect location, and the price was good at $177 a night. Decorations were modern, my wife raved about the bathroom and the service was solid. We had a wonderful stay.

Great Location in Chicago, just a minutes away from the John Hancock center.
We had a lake view room, but even in the 19th floor you hardly can see it. The room was clean and luxurious but not too spacey. Really nice equipment in the room.
For parking do not use the Valet service of the hotel, as it is 47$ for 24h. If you do not need your car every hour use the 900 North Michigan parking garage for 34$ for 24h.

Fom the moment we arrived on Thursday until checkout day Monday, the staff members at the Sofitel Chicago Tower made us felt very special. I couldn't have picked a better Hotel in Chicago to Celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. The room was absolutely incredible ultra modern and luxury, very spacious, spotless, great amenities, the bed was SO comfortable, the gym is small but have the perfect equipment to do a great vacation workout. A special shout out to the entire staff who could not have been more accommodating. Thank you very much for made our stayed in Chicago the best and we would definitely stay there again. MM

Stayed here for the first time about a month ago. I highly recommend this hotel. Three things I look for in a hotel while traveling is clean rooms, comfortable beds, and easy access to surrounding attractions. This hotel has all three and a beautiful bathroom. I actually booked this hotel for our October visit and not the normal hotel I would normally stay at in Chicago.

I stayed for four nights while attending a conference. The hotel is in a great spot - easy walk to Michigan Ave shopping or Rush St., but just off the busy streets. The room I had was spacious, and very well-appointed. The staff was friendly, and the fitness center, while not huge, was well-equipped and clean. I've stayed at a number of hotels in Chicago, and this one is my favorite. Internet wasn't free, but at $10 for 24 hours is cheaper than most business hotels, and it worked very well.
