“Great Saturday night get-a-way!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

My husband and I checked in and were blown away by the beautiful lobby and the friendly staff. Our check in was quick and we were in our room in no time. The room is spacious and beautiful! The entire property is gorgeous and hip! The I/O Urban Roofscape on the 4th floor is a must do! It is swanky and amazing! The bar staff is super, the drinks are great and we will definitely be back!

Room Tip: the South side rooms have a great view of the city!

Energy! We felt the energy of the Godfrey from the moment we entered the lobby and were greeted by their friendly staff that were ready to assist with our stay!! The room was clean, fresh, spacious, and the bed was very comfortable! This new hotel got it right with perfect lighting in the bathroom and a wonderful shower! We heard the highlight of the Godfrey was the rooftop bar on the 4th floor and it did not disappoint!! The rooftop bar definitely was filled with the energy of many enjoying some great drinks, food or the beautiful city lights of Chicago!! During the day, this same area becomes a relaxing setting for breakfast which has the "best" steel cut oatmeal I have ever had, along with outstanding coffee!! When your ready to shop or see the sights, the Godfrey's location is a few blocks from Michigan Ave, with great restaurants in and around this River North area!
I did not have enough time to enjoy the fitness area, but at a glance it would meet the needs of a good workout while traveling. When we return to the Godfrey, the weather should be warmer so we can explore the entire rooftop area, and get the chance to workout before we taste more of their delicious appetizers or breakfast items!
The Godfrey brings a new energy to the River North area! We cannot say enough about the staff being friendly, the inviting accommodations, and the perfect location for enjoying Chicago!
We will definitely be returning to the Godfrey!

We needed a hotel near the Northwestern Hospital area, and found the Godfrey from an online search. The hotel is a short walk to Northwestern Hospital. When we arrived in the evening and greeted by a friendly Bell staff, then Front Desk check in was quick and friendly. The Bell man was very enthusiastic and personable, we learned he is in training as an Olympic athlete. Our room was decorated with a modern urban feel. A comfortable stay.

We had time and went to the bar and lounge area. A very upbeat area. I have not seen one like this before and worth the time there. In the bar and lounge area, we found out the Margaretas are made in the kitchen and they were quite good..

Breakfast was good with healthy choices and prompt service.

My husband and I stayed here for our weekend in downtown Chicago. It was absolutely fabulous! The room is a good size for downtown and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

A must is to check out the lounge/restaurant there - IO Urban Roofscape. We definitely want to return when it's nice enough to enjoy the outdoor seating! We love to try new drinks and food and they had both for us - the cocktails from the kitchen were great twists on some of our favorites and the Lamb Lollichops were delicious!

This should definitely be a top choice for anyone looking to stay in downtown Chicago!

Room Tip: Ask for the south facing rooms for a spectacular view of the city!

Hotel is very nice. Contemporary and trendy. I loved the decor and finishes. Suites are smaller than expected and I planned on having a fridge in the room but there wasn't. The staff was very nice and helpful. The I/O roof scape is beautiful and really fun. I would recommend the hotel and bar to all my friends.

Was a little worried before I arrived, tired from an 8 hour flight, because of some of the reviews here. But everything worked out perfect.

Check in took 5 minuters, my room was ready even though I arrived a couple of hours early.

Stayed at the eleventh floror with a beautiful view! Great room and a fantastic bed!

Stayed Therese nights, Will definitely stay here again!

Wow! We cannot say enough about the Godfrey Hotel. The staff is out-of-this-world friendly and professionally savant. We have stayed at several locations in Chicago and were excited to try the Godfrey, a new (very affordable) hotel in the River North district, just a few blocks from the Magnificent Mile and within walking distance of tons of excellent restaurants. From start to finish, we were treated like royalty. (Maybe it was our southern accent!) The front desk staff could not have been more accommodating. We arrived on an early flight and assumed we would have to leave our bags until afternoon check-in. To our delight, we were able to check-in to our room at 10 am! Stylish and comfortable, we quickly made ourselves at home.

Attention to detail is important to the Godfrey as evidenced by their choice of toiletries, L'Occitaine en Provence products. Nice touch! I did laugh when I saw the minibar, stocked with Red Bull and Absolute Vodka. Not our drink of choice, but it did make us smile! Speaking of drinks, don't overlook the uber-hipster rooftop bar on the 4th floor. You can take in the cityscape from the rooftop while cozying up to one of several fireplaces (both indoor and out) or munch on appetizers at one of the hightop tables on the terrace.

Everyone at this hotel went out of their way to welcome us. In fact, our flight was canceled, and the head front desk clerk went above and beyond to help remedy the situation. When we were unable to book a flight that day, she held a room for us until we could make it back from the airport and beyond that . . . comforted us by offering us vouchers for complimentary appetizers and drinks, a enuine act of kindness for which we are grateful.

There are tons of CTA busses serving the city with stops on either side of the hotel's block. If you are traveling without a car, you will have no trouble navigating the city from this location. You can walk most everywhere. We did. Don't miss surrounding attractions like the Driehaus Museum. It was simply fab-u!

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor if you don't want to hear ambient noise from the rooftop bar. We stayed o...
