Rated 3 out of 5 by jotravels Average Hotel - Great for Business Traveler in a god location
The hotel is located in a very convenient spot. Room was decent and staff was helpful. Unfortunately, I had a very inconsiderate neighbor that constantly slammed their door 10+ times a day! The hotel was sold out while I was there and wasn't able to switch rooms. Thankfully I was only there for business, so didn't have to spend much time in the room.
Also, the carpet had stains and the furniture looks like it needed updating. I have stayed at other Four Points and they were much cleaner and more updated looking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Steven77 great location just off michigan ave
Had a very enjoyable 3 night stay when in Chicago to see a concert. Great bell staff - very friendly, good customer service and helpful. indoor pool and jacuzzi was nice. Nothing popped about the property as exceptional but very good value and location. Super convenient to walk 75' to Trader Joes for wine and snacks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DD59 This hotel goes beyond greatness
The staff at The Four Points Sheraton Magnificent Mile went above and beyond the call of duty to help me and my family upon our arrival, our stay, and our departure. I cannot thank thank them enough for their kindness and thoughtfulness. Our room was immaculate and the whole hotel was exceptional.

Frist time staying in a Sheraton Hotel and the Four Points was impressive. I picked this hotel based on it's location to the Magnificient Mile and on reviews commenting on how clean the hotel was.
Parking was convienent, staff friendly and helpful and the room was spacious and very clean.

This was my first experience with a Four Points and for a very late arrival the staff greeted me promptly and made sure my needs were met.
The only room for improvement was getting a cab to transfer hotels. Cabs are not lined up and the "bell person" literally had to flag them down in the street! Other than that for the one night is was a nice stay.

Conveniently located to both Michigan Ave and Loop. Attached parking at a reasonable downtown price and in and out privileges. Connected to a good and reasonably priced breakfast place - no need to bundle up and walk outside. Four of us in a double queen room were quite comfortable.

We needed to leave our luggage for a few hours. Both leaving and picking up were positive interactions with fun banters. Not an area that is usually memorable, but these two guys were quick to see our needs "you had that look" and respond.

Staffs are friendly and nice
Rooms are comfortable.
Free internet for everyone.

If location in Chicago is important, meaning close to shopping, restaurants, entertainment, this is the spot. Subsequently it is a busy hotel, the lobby is often noisy, the parking expensive. But t's a comfortable hotel with all the amenities, if you like being in a big loud city.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mobilehobo A perfect compliment to a fine vacation
The staff (not limited to); the desk clerk (Sedalia) and the bellman (Dante) whose names I still remember, and even the maids were all above average in friendliness. They were knowledgeable about the local area and helpful to the point of opening a bottle of wine for us. And although being friendly and thorough never became intrusive or less than professional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bridie23 Lovely, comfortable stay!
We stayed at the hotel one weekend in July when we were in Chicago for a wedding. The rooms were clean, bright, and cheery, and the beds were very comfortable. The hotel is located right in the heart of the city, so it is an easy walk to shopping, restaurants, museums, and the lake. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful, and the doorman was great, always greeting us with a beautiful smile and warm wishes for a good time. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel, and I am looking forward to returning myself sometime soon.

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.

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.

I reserved a suite and had confirmation but when I went to check in, it was not available. The staff was very nice and tried to be accomodating but I ordered a suite and had reservation confirmation but they just completely botched it. Would definitely stay somewhere else.

We hadn't been to Chicago in many years, but found ourselves in an excellent location to visit museums, parks, stores and restaurants. The staff was helpful and courteous and the room clean and spacious. A lightweight blanket would have been a useful alternative to the heavier comforter or the sheet, as the a/c came on and off.
