Perfect location, very good service, clean rooms. The price is OK considering that you are directly in the heart of the new city. Be careful if you use the small fridge because it is with sensors. If you move a bottle, it will charge you! I used the fridge to put my food and drinks and was surprised to receive...

I stayed at this hotel during the 2013 Chicago marathon weekend. The location is amazing: close to everything in the loop area, Magnificent mile, lake side promenade. The room was clean, comfortable and quite. The hotel can get busy and noisy in the hall and elevator area, but I would totally recommend this place to young couples and friends.

I had the "pleasure" of going to Chicago on business in February. It was freezing cold but the hotel was nice. The front desk staff was super accommodating. The room was a little dark as far as color palates but otherwise comfortable and clean. The meeting space was nice and we enjoyed the gourmet popcorn snacks.

We stayed at the Hard Rock over Labor Day to meet some friends that were winding up a trip across America on the their Harley's (from Australia). The Hard Rock seemed like a great fit and it was. Right on Michigan Ave., near the Chicago River, Millennium Park, and the Chicago River, it's very well located and well appointed. Our...

The room was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the location and history of the building. Right on Michigan Avenue two blocks south of the Chicago River. You can walk to the Gold Coast shopping area or be close to the loop business district. Would consider staying here again!

We arrived at "The Hard Rock" suitably tired after flying in from the UK, but felt immediately revived by Van Morrison's Brown Eyed Girl playing loud and proud in reception. The receptionist who checked us in was happy, polite, efficient and sympathetic to our post flight weariness. Our room was situated on "The Who" floor with I think, two of...

We spent 2 nights at the Hard Rock Chicago in August, and really enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect. Just a few blocks to some great attractions (Millennium Park, Michigan Avenue, the river.) It was also a quick walk from a few major train stops (easy to get to/from: O'Hare, Wrigley). Early check-in on a Saturday wasn't a problem....

I spent 6 night at the Hard Rock Chicago during September 13. Check in was great with really friendly and helpful staff. I was given free Wifi but it was pretty slow so I upgraded to a fast paid for service at about $5 a day which was much faster. On checkout this was refunded as a goodwill gesture so...

Just back from 5 nights at the Hard Rock Hotel Chicago and we really enjoyed it, the hotel room was spacious, clean and comfortable. We were checked in and out efficiently and had no problems with reception. Hotel was in a great location and we would definitely recommend it.

Don't be fooled by the name and the fame. I found the Hard Rock Hotel to be an okay place to stay. from the start (getting out of the cab) the bell staff is average or a little below average. The initial greeting was not there as one would expect from such a famous hotel. The greeting at the front...

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
