Our first introduction to the Acme Hotel was meeting one of its employees on the subway from Midway. Patrick must have thought we looked lost and asked if we needed help as it turns out we were staying at his place of work! He guided us to hotel. It was very kind of him! Check in was super easy. The room was spacious and clean. The only turn off was when we asked for some help and John who was at the front desk came off condescending and not very helpful. Overall the rest of the staff was helpful and nice.We really enjoyed Chicago and the Acme hotel.

The Front Desk was always upbeat and happy to help with any request. Special Shout out to Front Desk Supv. John T and Capt Karl.. They were great! Just having thermos of coffee at the door each morning, make this the place to come back to again and again. Our room was very quiet, and super clean, making great use of the quirky space,. Great Location to get to all the Chicago Spots. Definitely will be back.

Room Tip: Be sure to place your order for personal thermos of coffee to be delivered in the morning..

Stayed for a convention in June. Great alternative to run of the mill hotels. Trendy and super clean and affordable. Glad we decided to step outside the hotel box this trip. Love the chic decor and eco friendly environment. Service was good and great bar and bakery just steps away.

Thank you for recognizing our "outside the box" look! Hopefully our bakery will lure you back Chicago soon for another stay.

We stayed for only two days, but I wish it would have been longer. This is a fun and interesting place to stay. This is not your generic sterile, chain hotel. I loved the chalk boards on the doors, the European feel to the furnishings, and the soap and shampoo that smelled and felt great. Absolutely loved the red lips night light on the bathroom mirror!
This was the best bed I'd slept on in two weeks and there was a really good shower too. They bring you a thermos of coffee if you like and a daily newspaper to your door.
Captain Karl was very helpful and the gals at the desk too when we needed suggestions on breakfast places and getting around.
Be sure and get pastries from the bakery there. You can't go wrong with the blueberry toffee Danish!

Room Tip: We had a King Suite and it had a good city skyline view from the 12th floor. The view from the bedroom was made more attractive by the artwork suspended in the air....see photo

Wile E. Coyote would love this hotel. Although he would not be able to purchase a tricky contraption to capture the Road Runner, he would get a great night's sleep in a retro feeling environment.
The minute I stepped into the hotel, I was welcomed and felt safe and relaxed after a busy day touring the city. The designer definitely paid attention to detail, displaying old classic record albums in the elevator to the over sized hand prints slapped on canvas used for headboards in the rooms.
The ACME Hotel is very clean and quiet. They did a great job making a small space feel roomy. The staff was very helpful and friendly as well. The hotel is located near shopping and restaurants. Recommended for all ages especially if you want to slip back in time with a modern twist. I will be back!
