“Good value in the older part of the hotel.”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Received a complimentary night in the older rooms for a short gambling trip. Nice clean rooms, quiet and separate from the casino. Convenient covered parking. Ample dining options at the hotel and many more in town.Close to outlet mall and Lake Michigan harbor.

I cannot speak of the non tower section, but spend the extra for the tower. I've never been to a hotel that makes my own home appear noisy, but this place did. Great food and friendly staff. Excellent price for the hotels quality. A nice casino, a great city and nice getaway. Maybe food could cost less, but it is excellent. Room is spotless... It became a game to drop lint on the floor and not see it there the next day. Good coffee. Deli has great bakery items. Meat int he buffet is as good as it gets, anywhere.

Room Tip: Tower..spend the extra

A friend and I decided to try our luck at the Blue Chip Casino. Decided to stay in the old hotel part. Check in was fast and efficient. It's a lot of walking, so be prepared for that. We "boarded" the elevator to our room on the 6th floor. Immediately, the smell of dirty feet filled our noses. That really turned us off. Not sure why it was like that, as we never did smell it again. Got off the elevator to be welcomed with a blast of hot air. Temps outside were in the high 70s that day, so were expecting to be greeted with cooler air. The whole hallway to our room was very, very hot. Opened our room door, and again, hot air. The air conditioner was not even on, and only the fan was running. We immediately turned the air on as high as it would go. This was at 4:00 PM. It never did cool down to a comfortable temperature. At 10:00 PM, still not cool. The wifi did not work very well at all. It would let you in, but then it would throw you out. The room had a small refrig, so it was nice to have that. The walk in shower was very nice. There is no bathtub, so don't plan on soaking or taking a bubble bath. We found it strange that there was no lamp between the two queen size beds. So, it did lack lighting. The bed was very comfortable. The room didn't give you a good clean feeling. It had an odor about it, and I can't place what it was. Old cigarette smoke? Not sure. All the reviews I have read, most people stayed in the spa tower. If I ever return, I will pay the extra money and stay there.

We have stayed many times and never had a bad experience. We have stayed in the old hotel which is nice because it is close to the pool and hot tub. We prefer the tower rooms though because the views are spectacular, on a clear evening you can see the lights of Chicago. The rooms are always impeccable and comfortable. The service is top notch; everyone goes out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. The facilities have all you could want, from high end restaurants to excellent midnight snacks and we always enjoy the buffet. The night clubs are a lot of fun and have great bands or DJ’s. I'm not a Spa guy but my wife says they do a great job. The casino, we not big gamblers so we have never won a lot or lost a lot. We always look forward to our Blue Chip stays.

Room Tip: The suites on the top floors are out of this world.

Hotel rooms are very nice, the staff is very accommodating. My room overlooked Lake Michigan & the view is spectacular @ sunset. The entire staff loves their job & are so friendly, from the servers, to room service, the valet, the bellmen, housekeeping & the front desk. Would highly recommend to stay. Several food options for every budget. Many things to do in the area.

PROS: The room was decent. No complaints about cleanliness. The room had a mini-fridge, nice big walk-in shower, and no noticeable smoke smell until you got to the elevator lobby.

CONS: Paper-thin walls & doors. We were awakened by the alarm clock at 6am in the room NEXT DOOR. No electronic check-out, you have to do it at the front desk.
