This past summer we stayed at this Chicago hotel for a week and it was an good but improvable choice. The Doubletree is a mid-range brand which is part of the Hilton chain and is generally designed for business travelers (I'd put it in the 3-to-4-star range). For the price and service, this particular hotel is closer to four stars but a lot of the services are extras. The location is great, just two blocks from the Magnificent Mile and a ten minutes' walk from Navy Pier. On this front, no complaints.
The facilities are correct and appropriate to the hotel's category. The rooms are well-equipped and properly sized. The outdoor pool is in good shape and has nice views of the surrounding skyscrapers. The lobby is spacious and nicely decorated, with a lively but somewhat expensive bar.
The downside of this hotel are all the additional fees. The paid parking lot is pretty steep considering the area ($17/hour), breakfast isn't included in the price of the room, and internet isn't free in the rooms. Luckily, I discovered that if you start your connection in the lobby and go up to the room, I would stay connected. But really...for the prices they charge, guests shouldn't have to do these kinds of things. Also, there was a sensor in the mini-bar so it immediately charges your account the second you remove something from the fridge, whether you end up drinking it or not.
Aside from these little details, it was a good hotel but I probably wouldn't repeat. For the same price, there are a lot of equally-good hotels in the Chicago area that include all these little extras in the price of the room.
The Allerton Hotel was one of the first skyscrapers of the Magnificent Mile, which was built in the late 1920s. During Al Capone's reign in Chicago, it was one of the key areas of social life of the city. Then, with the passing of time and and the construction of other glass and steel giants, it lost its luster and fell into disrepute. Ten years ago, it underwent an extensive renovation that restored it to its former glory, something this historic building deserves. One of its distinguishing features is the sign TIP TOP TAP on the exterior wall which was once the name of the bar on the top floor which closed 50 years ago. However, the sign has remained in place ever since and is now one of the icons of the city.
Unfortunately I can't say that I've stayed at this hotel, which is one of the most, if not the most luxurious, in Chicago, but my daughter was playing in the park directly in front of it, (Seneca Park) and she had an urgent need to visit the bathroom. Since it was early and the shops were closed, the only option was the Ritz. This hotel is located in the great assembly [poi = 115387] Water Tower Place [/ poi], which includes a large shopping center with offices, restaurants, etc. It is in the very center of the city, right next to the Water Tower and the Magnificent Mile. You won't need to tell anyone it's a five-star hotel, as they've spared no expense on the decor. It's quite minimalist, but extremely luxurious. My son's sudden illness let us get a glimpse inside this amazing hotel, especially the lounge, with a large glass roof lets enjoy an unimaginable view of the skyscrapers around it, especially the John Hancock Tower. We didn't have anything to eat or drink because with kids it wouldn't have been possible, but I highly recommend going to have a romantic drink to enjoy the atmosphere and the views. It's a high-class place, no doubt.
For the moment this is the hotel that I have chosen. Although the comments are not great, they all stress that the price is very good for the location. At 1000 euros for 6 nights, not including breakfast, it is not cheap, but in the end it is close to everything and the cost of other hotels are prohibitive.
The Seneca Hotel & Suites is located in the spectacular city of Chicago, state capital of Illinois and enjoys an excellent location. From here it will be very easy to access major attractions and points of interest in the city. The rooms have wireless high-speed internet service.
This is one of the best hotels that you can find in Chicago. It's located Downtown, 50 meters from Michigan Avenue and just a three minutes walk from the beaches of Chicago. The rooms are very large with king or queen beds and the pillows are HUGE, you'll quickly fall asleep. Most rooms have views but the views from from the 30th floor are the best. The people who work there are very attentive and try to help you in any way they can. But best of all, is definitely the pool they have in the Penthouse. One can bathe while gazing at the buildings of Chicago, have a drink while watching the beach or even sunbathe while watching the sunset ...
