Very modern feel, all the amenities I could ask for, fantastic staff. I was lucky enough to have a street view- as a first time visitor to Chicago, it was great! Also, relatively close to some great Chicago oriented attractions (Millennium Park). Would definitely recommend them to anyone visiting the windy city!

Rated 3 out of 5 by CuzMike Has Limitations
This location has its limitations. The room was very nice, maybe a littlle small. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. But, cell phone receoption in the room was poor and wi-fi hit and miss. Additionally, self-parking was two blocks from the hotel and valet parking was difficult with only curb space to work with.

Lovely hotel, it is very close to major sites in Chicago, the staff is very welcoming, the beds are so comfortable. Such a lovely place for everybody. Do try the restaurant Beatrix, great breakfast and the cookies are to die for...

Rated 4 out of 5 by Hollys108 The Hotel is Hip
I love the location of the hotel. The staff is very helpful and responsive. I have only one negative that the hotel tends to be noisy and you can hear all the fire trucks and ambulances.

I travel frequently and stay at a number of Starwood properties. The Aloft is a nice property in an ideal location. The rooms are basic but nice. The staff is a pleasure and the hotel has a partnership with a great restaurant that is connected to the hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LaurieB5 Great location, wonderful hotel
We loved this hotel. The rooms are clean, modern, and thoughtfully designed. The restaurant is terrific. The staff is very accommodating, and, the downtown to location makes it easy to walk most places in the loop.

Staff at this hotel is excellent. They have some problems with their phone system, that could not be resolved for my entire stay, which was 10 nights. This wasn't the staff's fault. It seems they have an inadequate phone system.

Hotel is clean with easy access. Employees were all pleasant & service was good. There is a fire station across the street that no one tells you about & well you are in The City od Chicago that goes 24/& so you won't sleep .

Rated 5 out of 5 by Htx17 Fantastic Location
Aloft was a great hotel experience. The location was perfect for enjoying Chicago and being able to walk during the day for shopping and in the evening for restaurants and nightlife. The staff were awesome and extremely customer service oriented. This is my first choice for where to stay when visiting Chicago!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jenn30 Hotel and Staff are beyond amazing!
I have stayed at my share of Starwood properties and they always have outstanding customer service. Recently, we stayed at the Aloft Chicago City Center for a girls weekend and the staff was very friendly, responsive, and always willing to help. Amazing experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tony888 Great location, great staff
Stayed here for 5 nights in mid-July with my wife and 2 kids, 7 and 10. We were given a room on the 11th floor facing N. Clark. Room was clean, spacious enough for us, and comfortable. I can't say enough about how great all of the staff were to us, greeting us every single day and answering all of our questions. I've stayed in many hotels before but the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff is in top 5 of my hotel stays, on par with a lot more expensive ones I've stayed at.
Location in Chicago is fantastic, only 2 blocks from metro station, and right in the middle of the entertainment district with lots of great food choices in varying price ranges.
My only complaint about the hotel is the noise level from the street and from the fire station that's located nearly right beside it. Someone must have cut costs on windows and sound proofing because you could hear lots from the street, as well as from some of the neighbouring rooms, and even in the hallways. Our stay overlapped a Saturday night which was incredibly noisy until early morning so that was not too pleasant. But the rest of the stay was relatively quiet at nighttime.

The ALOFT Chicago just opened a few months ago. It is very nice. Very comfortable bed in a stylish room where the window actually opens for fresh air.
The staff was very professional and greeted me every time I entered the building.
Beatrix the hotel bar is very good with good food and great crowd.

I booked this hotel bc I wanted the SPG points but thought it was a lower end hotel. I was pleasantly surprised - it is very new, modern, very European and the food from the adjoining restaurant was healthy and delicious. I would definitely stay here again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KBEK13 Great location, Was expecting more
Hotel was cool, location was great. The rooms were intended to be cool, but seemed a little cheap. The staff was wonderful. When your neighbor opens their shades it sounds as if it is happening in your own room. The walls and windows do not block any noise from the outside of your room.

Conveniently located just north of loop and near Michigan Avenue. I inadvertently left valuables in my room at checkout, They were waiting for me at the front deck several hours later when I returned looking for them. Great service from housekeeping/security/front desk.

The hotel was right in downtown, good location. Loved the room layout where the bed looks out onto the city. Fun overall style.
The walls & windows are thin, I could hear conversations/people in the adjacent rooms & hallways as well as every noise outside. Didnt get much sleep.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Travelforfun Hotel is neat
This hotel is clean, and furnishing is delicate, staff is very nice, excellent location. The unsatisfactory part is that the room is smaller than expected, and the comforter is not soft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jleif2188 New, friendly and impressive hotel!
This was my first experience at the Aloft hotel brand and really enjoyed the uniqueness of the product. The modern feel to the hotel fits nicely in the trendy area of Chicago. I think this hotel is great for any occasion and highly recommend to anyone considering a visit to the area.

The hotel staff was amazing and the room was its usual high quality. Beatrix was good, the only thing is the menu was kind of limited. We always stay at an aloft where it's available!

nice hotel. modern and fun. the only perhaps problem is that though the bathrooms look and feel great, they can be a bit loud and make it a bit hard to keep things private...

Rated 4 out of 5 by GGregg This aloft does it right!
Great location. Great restaurant & bar. The staff is excellent -- a very well managed team. The doorman -- I believe his name was Luis -- gave excellent service when getting my car from the valet.
By far the best managed aloft in which I've stayed .... and it's new to boot.

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at the Aloft in downtown Chicago! The location was amazing being so close to bars, restaurants and things to see and do. Most impressive, the room was very quiet in the mornings - no troublesome sirens could be heard. We will definitely be back!
