Rated 2 out of 5 by JH1966 VIP???
I booked this hotel because I'm an SPG member who's supposed to get a VIP treatment from this hotel. The room didn't look like any different from the $60 room that we stayed at a couple of months ago. We were 6 (my husband & i with 4 kids) but we were only provided with 3 towels (low quality ones that my daughter got itchy after using it). There was a microwave but no plates or silverware only 2 wooden stirs for the coffee.

I must admit my review is impacted from a stay at a different Sheraton the night before this one. Hotel was nice and perfectly sufficient, but I must say compared to the other Sheraton, this hotel was not nearly as nice. Again, the hotel was great, but compared to Sheraton's standards I would just have to say it's just average. The pool was nice, and there appears to have been a hot tub at one point. It has, however, been covered by a wood enclosure.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Chitown23 Disaster from the minute we walked in the door!
Let me preface this review. We have been Starwood members since 2002 and we stay in hotels on business over 120 day a year.
We live and Chicago and decided to staycation in our home town to celebrate our 50th birthdays by using our points to book a night at Four Point Mag Mile for its location.
Our visit started with a desk clerk with a chip on her shoulder and not even a "Hello" or "Welcome". I requested a room upgrade and was told that when booking with points that "i am not eligible" even though I had just received an email asking if I wanted to upgrade my stay for $25.
We were given the WORST room that we have ever encountered on any Sheraton property that we have ever stayed in. The carpeting was dirty and rippled, there was hair on the comforter and pillows from a previous guest and the bathroom had a sewage odor to it. Our lovely view was of roofs.
When I complained to the front desk they were uncooperative, unapologetic and unwilling to even attempt to address our concerns.
It was at this point that I call SPG and they rectified the situation and saved our weekend by relocating us to another hotel.
I hate to think that when you are "a valued Starwood member" and you use points to stay that you are automatically given the worst room in the hotel. 7500 points at $1 earned for a point is $7500 in my mind. Using points are not freebies, when you use them you shouldn't be given the worst of the worst .... it is a lot of stays, a lot of money spent at Sheraton properties and a lot of loyalty. I hope that this message get across.

This property is the reason we became SPG members. I booked it because of location and price. My wife, 2 year old daughter and I were in town for a Cardinals-Cubs baseball game and wanted to stay downtown for the rest of the stay. The staff was very cordial in assisting us. The room was very spacious. E-Leven was a great value for breakfast and lunch. Being able to walk to many of the destinations we wanted to see was of great value to us and train stations are only a couple of blocks away. We will definitely go back to this location when traveling to Chicago just based off of convenience, staff and value. Thank you so much for a great stay!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jodel My worst SPG experience ever
I must say that this stay was more than disappointing!!
I'm a Platinum member and expect to be recognized and treated as such.
But this stay was just the opposite:
* I had to wait in a long queue for checkin and checkout - no one attended the SPG Gold and Platinum Members counter
* when I reserved that room by phone, I said that we will be 2 adults and 2 little kids and I requested a King size bed, an additonal small bed for my 2.5 year son and a crib for my 1,5 year daughter
* I asked if that hotel (rated with 4 SPG) has decent suites and for more comfort I requested a suite night upgrade
* my understanding of suites are minimum 2 separate rooms. This is what I have seen in several of your hotels and even in the 4Points Sheraton in Browndeer.
* the room I was offered was a tiny room with a jacuzzi
* a jacuzzi justifies to be considered a suite??????
* what am I supposed to do with a jacuzzi in my room, travelling with 2 small children???
* of course, the room was NOT set up propperly! I had to call several times to get the additional bed and the crib. Both hardly fitted into the room
This is definitely NOT acceptable and iI request to get this suite upgrade night reimbursed.
I complained to the Front Desk but this was like talking to a wall. Not even the smallest apologies nor sorry. Unbelievable!! If you treat Platinum guest in that way: how do you treat normal guests??

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.

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:-)
