This Four Points is located in the heart of what is happening in Chicago! The staff was very friendly and helpful and the room and facilities were excellent.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Donald3217 Nothing more than a room
The Staff is really nice. The hotel is not bad, but it's just a hotel nothing more than a room to sleep in.

Rated 1 out of 5 A huge disappointment
Made reservations a couple of months in advance for 2 joining rooms to ensure all teenagers had their own bed. Called 2 days prior to trip to confirm. Told everything was ready for us. When we arrived, the hotel did not have joining rooms. We were on the same floor but numerous rooms apart so our family was separated. Check in clerk said she would refund $100 per room per night for the inconvenience. When we checked out there was only a $50 per room credit (which I only got a total of $34 of because they said the taxes are very high in Chicago!) Reservations are apparently made by people in another city. Hotel said reservation people do not know what the hotel can really offer and should not make unrealistic promises. Room had burned out lighbulbs and was very dimly lit. Shampoos and lotions in bathroom were not sealed and were only half full. Hotel advertises free bottled water in each room. For a family of five we were given 2 free bottled waters!
In all fairness, the second night of our stay, the hotel did move us to joining rooms that we were originally promised. They told us the first night of our stay, the hotel was sold out. My suggestion is to not stay at this hotel at all or stay druing an "off itme" so the hotel can live up to it's promises.

We were very pleased with our stay recently at the Four Points Sheraton Downtown Chicago. We were in the middle of everything, from our theater for a concert to great restaurants, and to a local movie theater. Excellent stay and extremely helpful staff, especially Jocelyn at the front desk. She was so professional and yet quite personable. Kudos to her!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by HawksFan Classic Bait & Switch
I booked and confirmed two rooms well in advance of our trip specifying TWO DOUBLE BEDS in each room.
Upon arrival, I was told there was "nothing like this available" and that my guests and I were "assigned" rooms with a king and hide-a-bed. I was traveling with three other gentlemen (prospective clients, no less) who had already graciously agreed to share rooms to lessen costs. Just imagine how embarrassing it was to tell them they would now need to actually sleep together, in the SAME BED? Oh, or flip a coin to see who slept on a sofa foldout? Needless to say, this issue has hung over our relationship since then.
The management were extremely rude (repeatedly hanging up on my travel rep) while she and I worked for two hours straight over the phone to find other accommodations that met our needs. Naturally, with two huge conventions and a major sporting event in town, there were none to be had on such short notice.
Therefore, my guests and I had no choice but to stay with our room! Classic bait & switch.
Sheraton stubbornly maintains that we were "accommodated"—but actually, it was me and my guests who were "accommodating" Sheraton.
Bottom line, if I knew there was no guarantee of receiving what I required, I would have booked elsewhere. Sheraton were rude, unbending, unsympathetic and uncaring—everything you want in a hotel, eh? Never again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AlbertPhilly Great Customer Service
I've stayed at a lot of SPG hotels and they all have been very helpful, but the staff at the Four Points Sheraton are on top of their game!
I made a careless mistake of booking my room at the wrong rate, but Rachel Chambers on the night staff helped me figure out a solution. The entire time she had a great smile on her face and really worked to resolve the issue. All the staff had a genuine smile on their face the whole time they were helping me and I could not have asked for better assistance. Even the attendees at the door were fantastic.
The only thing is that the temperature is harder to control in the room and there is only one entrance for the hotel (which requires you to walk around the entire block to get to).

hotel is within walking distance of many attractions.
*attached parking garage was convenient but hotel policy for parking was not explained when checking in and when we asked about the cost and exit/re-entry policy, the ticket provided didnot open gate for exit each time we left! We had to push help button and wait for gate to raise without a human response - annoying!
*rooms were clean and adequate for 4 adults (2 double beds and pull out couch).
*front desk staff didnot acknowledge our gold membership at any time during our visit and were not always helpful when asked directions.
*Appreciated Eleaven restaurant being on site for breakfast and lunch.

My mother-in-law has always been a baseball fan and wanted to see Wrigley Field and visit Chicago. We chose to stay at the Sheraton Four Points for our visit and with the expert advice of Phillip Kendrick, doorman and concierge extraordinaire, we were able to get the most from our short visit. Phillip was always available and was anticipatory of our needs without us even having to ask. He made dining, sightseeing, shopping and transportation recommendations that exceeded our expectations and added value to our vacation.

After researching hotels in or near downtown Chicago, Four Points by Sheraton checked all of our boxes, and it didn't disappoint. The location is perfect - within walking distance of the Magnificent Mile and its popular locations. The hotel is clean and comfortable - our room a welcome sight at the end of a long day of shopping and sightseeing. The kids loved the indoor pool, and the staff is friendly and helpful. We would recommend this hotel to any family looking for a great place to stay!

We had a great time in Chicago this past weekend, everyone at the Four Points were fabulous. The only problem was there was no hairdryer in our room and we had to call for one. Overall it was a great place to stay for the price.

We stayed at this hotel for my bachelorette party, and had a great time! The location was perfect for shopping, food and heading to Navy Pier. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. It was easy to get a cab to the train station when we left.

My wife and I stayed Saturday and Sunday of President's Day weekend in a clean, well-appointed room. The staff is ALWAYS very cheerful and helpful and this stay was no different! As we drove into the city, we learned that there was a good possibility of threatening weather on Monday, and so I asked if it would be possible to stay another day-Monday- if the weather was bad and I was granted the extra day if necessary. This request was granted without a moment's hesitation. Knowing that I could stay the extra day if necessary allowed me to relax instantly!! Thank you Four Points for your hospitality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TravelDude HUGE surprise!!!
I have only stayed at this one Four Points because the hotel concept and "budget" reputation scared me off. However, this hotel was excellent, the location was perfect, the bed was super comfortable, the staff was one of the friendliest and accommodating I've met. PLUS: it had super-fast and FREE wifi!!! The ONLY thing I disliked about the hotel was the sofa in my room seemed "cheap" and was stiff and uncomfortable like an old motel, but so what? Extra bonus: it had a small laundry facility which helped me while I was on the road for two weeks. A bit of warning: the hotel is built on top of a parking garage, so the fifth floor, where I stayed, was actually the floor with an outdoor sunroof and pool. (I mention this only because people can look right into your window if you don't close your blinds.) I'm literally shocked at how much I loved staying here!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mama2012 Good location
There was a woman at the front desk who in particular was a little too curt and didn't take into account that there are tourists who travel to the city and need precise directions to locations - not just general loose statements. The coffee and tea bar in the lobby closes at 10am but there is no sign indicating this anywhere near the area. The bedrooms are not well cleaned but the beds are comfy. The rooms seem to lack a deep clean that is needed from time to time. The staff could stand to have a refresher course on hospitality. The hotel is well located to many stores, restaurants and the bridge.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CJ07 disappointed
meal service for 2 (breakfast) was clumsy affair for a room with one chair. I expected a table would be wheeled in so one person could sit on the bed and the other in the chair. As it was, 1 sat at the desk and the other held plate in hand while perched on the bed. --The coffee pot leaked water, pouring water from the seam out onto the table, floor and my foot.-- The towels were crunchy.
