“Fabulous Hotel”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

We recently hosted our wedding at the Hard Rock Hotel Chicago and could not have asked for anything better! This hotel is in such a unique building and a fantastic location. The inside is very cool with lots of rock and roll memorabilia and cool lighting and finishing. Then you have the fabulous Michigan Ave. right at your doorstep for fantastic photos outside! The staff there is so friendly. Everyone is willing to help you and make sure your stay is perfect. I would highly recommend this venue for anyone who is looking for a fun, unique but elegant wedding.

Had a 2 day stay here for a wedding with our 6 year old and 2 year old.
They had the crib set up in the room before we got there.
The beds had down pillows and blankets, but housekeeping was quick to change themn

The elevators were painfully slow. I waited 5 minutes for it one time.
The stay was pleansent and un-eventful. The bar downstairs was fun one evening.
Good location. Would stay again.

Recently attended a wedding at the Hard Rock and decided to stay overnight rather than make the long drive back north to the suburbs. Could not have been more pleased with the hotel. Check-in was extremely easy, room amenities and decor were great, pre-wedding drinks and snacks at Chuck's were delicious and wedding was amazing. Great reception room, drinks and food!

Highly recommend Hard Rock for an overnight stay in the city -- great location and staff!

Service is everything you would expect from a top-end hotel. Staff are pleasant and willing to help. Breakfast room is quite small, but adequate. All rooms and the hotel in general have the usual hard rock touches making it a great experience. The hotel also has its own hard rock gift shop offering unique chicago hotel souvenirs, but as usual with hard rock these are quite expensive. Hotel location is excellent - within ten minutes walk of the golden mile.

I stayed at the hotel for three nights over a weekend recently. Customer service was great, rooms were very clean, the whole hotel was clean and is nicely appointed.

That being said, I'll agree with other reviewers that the halls/neighbors were loud and woke me up consistently throughout the stay. There were several broken items in my room, including a couple of lamps and the curtain rod.

For the location, the price was great and I am willing to overlook a few imperfections, especially since they did not relate to cleanliness. Pack a pair of earplugs though!

Reviewed 30 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Perhaps not for McCormick Place. We have shuttle bus service to McCormick from a nearby hotel, so in the end I am glad we chose the Hard Rock. The price is no bargain, but it difficult to find a reasonable rate for Chicago, especially considering the cost of parking. The room itself was OK - comfortable, but nothing special. The shower is barely adequate. This is a beautiful old building (Carbon and Carbide) but it would be nice if they brought the rest of the property up to that level of quality.
