Rated 5 out of 5 by MO13 Wonderful stay!
The staff was extremely helpful and very pleasant. The location is right on-close to WaterTower Place and other attractions. The room was very comfortable and the indoor pool was enjoyed immensely.

Outstanding experience! We received an email on the way there that the hotel was experiencing a problem with hot water. The staff and management went out of their way to make our stay good and accomodate us for this problem. Truly a great experience. I would recommend this hotel to anyone

I would recommend that everyone experience the stay at Four Points By Sheraton. The service was excellent and the beds are comfortable. The employees were very professional and assisted us with everything we needed in a timely manner. NO One had an attitude or acted as if they did not want to assist us. The employees greeted everyone with a smile!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jimmy2011 Great location but lacks amenities
The positive attributes of this property are as follows:
* The staff were all highly engaged and responsive to needs and very helpful throughout the stay
* The location is fantastic being one block from Michigan Avenue and lots of great neighbourhood places of interest
* Beds are comfortable
The decor in the hotel is a bit tired and the rooms were adequate given that they are a good size for downtown and reasonably quiet. The air conditioning in the room I stayed in was problematic given that the unit was adjacent to the bed and cold air was blown directly at me as I slept. The bed was very comfortable but the pillows were an issue. Too big and hard.
The hotel does not have a restaurant nor a bar/lounge in the building which creates a burden for business travellers seeking a place to unwind and liaise with colleagues. There is a nice place for breakfast located around the corner and accessible from inside the hotel as well as a sushi restaurant is that's your thing.
The SPG recognition was non-existent, and while I realize that in the context of a group booking, the SPG program is clear in its terms and conditions, the hotel always has discretion for local decsion-making. I arrived with colleagues with no status and they were on the SPG floor while I was relegated to the 5th floor with SPG Platinum for Life status.
I would consider this hotel for personal travel if I were looking for an economical place to stay in downtown Chicago but not for business.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Hotelguest2014 Easily the worst hotel stay of my life
When I arrived the front desk was unwilling to honor my AAA membership. Suggested I cancel my reservation and come back later to check in and get a new reservation (and of course forfeit one day stay fees).
I tried to get a manager but was told they would just say the same thing. I gave up and checked in.
I later called Sheraton corporate for help and they tried to help but said it was up to the hotel to take care of me. They opened up a case with the hotel GM and a few days later I received an email stating that they were going to get in touch with me. That was several weeks ago.
Additionally my room was quite dirty (the carpet was disgusting).
I have never before in all my years as a business traveler been so poorly treated.
The last time I checked ,if it wasn't for your customers you would have no business. You might want to give that some consideration.
I suggest you consider another hotel when you stay in Chicago. If you have any issues you will obviously not get resolution.
The good news is there are many other options.
I will state though, that the bellman and the engineering staff were totally great! If only they were in charge.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Doc77 Upgrade wasn't offered
When we checked in and asked for upgrade, without looking we were told "we already upgraded you". We have stayed here many times, and the room we were in was not an upgrade, but a comfortable room. There was a loud party on our floor at 2am and when I called the desk, someone came up right away to quiet things down. The coffe sign in the lobby said "6am-9am", but the coffee was not ready till 6:30, then the regular was gone and not re-filled at 7am.

The staff at this location is beyond great. The front desk was very accommodating to us and very personable. Philip, the bellman, worked really hard to get a cab for the 6 of us on a busy Saturday morning. This location also has one of the best fitness rooms we've seen in a long time. The location couldn't be in a better place. We stayed at this location 2 nights and went to another hotel on the 3rd night....wished we would've stayed at Four Points:-)

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Greg912 Pleasantly Surprised
My room was more spacious, comfortable,and cleaner than expected, or what I perceived from the online pictures. The staff was friendly, and helpful. The location was awesome; it was next to some fine dining(Lawry's), and a block away from "The Mag Mile". Once again the staff = the front desk, doorman, room cleaners, maintenance, etc.; they were A++

I stayed here before, so I am familiar with this hotel. My issue on this trip was that the bath room (# 7321) smelled like mold.
I tried to figure out where it emitting from but couldn't. My stay was short and the other hotels were fully booked because of other conventions. So I stayed there and keep the bathroom door closed when not using it.

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by davesolomon Excellent location - stay here if you want downtown experience
Parking is $45/night.
This building is attached to Trader's Joe. So got fruits for morning breakfast.
Real downtown hotel - closer to all major downtown attractions and shopping.
Staffs are friendly and nice
Rooms are comfortable.
Free internet for everyone.

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 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.
