Stayed for two weekend nights, and the hotel exceeded my expectations as a base for a Chicago weekend getaway. The location is very central - within blocks of all the restaurant and nightlife options in River North and shopping on the Magnificent Mile, and easily accessible to other Chicago neighborhoods as well. The hotel has a lively, trendy vibe -...

Spent 4 nights here on business. The hotel is well located, with comfortable rooms, great gym, incredibly helpful staff who are quite helpful, positive, and competent at their jobs. There is no question that I will be staying here again.

Value for money fora few nights, not comfortable enough for any longer though. Modern decor throughout in a trendy and accessible area. I would visit again if I was visiting Chicago on a budget, however would have a preference for a higher calibre hotel.

Aloft hotels are fun with high energy and comfortable beds yet minimalist rooms. They are not the luxury line of the Starwood Property - but sometimes that is refreshing. They don't look down their nose at you if you bring a bag of your own food or - gasp - a small cooler. The rooms have a small refrigerator and...

This hotel is in a great location, just a few blocks from the Riverfront. It's in the middle of TONS of restaurants and bars, all within a few block radius. It's a trendy, hip hotel. The room was small but compact and efficient. The bed was super comfortable and I slept great both nights. The bar actually has a really...

My favorite hotel downtown! You are in the heart of River North, close to shopping, nightlife and the Best food in the City! Rooms are generous size, clean and comfortable. The Staff is Second to None, and the vibe is hip. Don't second guess this hotel, and don't pass up the opportunity to try the food at Beatrix. :)

I have stayed at Aloft a few times, for business and pleasure. The location can not be beat, as well as the helpful and friendly staff - from dinner recommendations, travel assistant, or an extra umbrella - they are the best! The coffees, baked goods and cocktails at Beatrix make Aloft my favorite destination for whatever brings me to town.

We stayed here for a girl's weekend and it was perfect. We bought 3-day ride train passes & took the blue line from the airport. It's about a half mile or so from the station at Clark and lake, (we got lucky, as our room was ready at 10:30 am and they let us check in). We realized on day...
