Rated 5 out of 5 by Matt20 Awesome Staff & Great Location
Our experience at the Sheraton Grand Chicago was outstanding! The entire staff was extremely friendly and courteous. In particular, Caitlin and Jonathan at the front desk were super helpful and far exceeded our expectations of customer service.
We were traveling with our two young children, and as Platinum SPG members, we were upgraded to a spacious suite with beautiful river views. This was absolutely perfect for us having the kids and all the extra luggage.
The prime hotel location allowed us to easily walk to a number of our activities and visit some great local restaurants too.
Next time we travel to the Windy City we will definitely be back to stay at the Sheraton Grand Chicago!

Rated 2 out of 5 by kdengs All Time Low Customer Service
I will preface my review by stating my team and I travel frequently. I'm a repeat Platinum SPG status member and am pretty loyal to Starwood properties due to the amount of travel we do and the usual above average customer service. I could not be more disappointed with our stay at the Sheraton Grand Chicago.
Let's start with the fact that our rooms (all 3 of them) were not ready until 5:30PM on our date of check in. We were a little early for check in so I understand if they weren't ready before 3pm, but 5:30 is unacceptable. We arrived to Chicago with a tight work schedule to keep and were counting on being able to have room access right away at 3pm for the rooms we PRE-PAID for that all had a 3PM check in time.
We were told they were in the process of being cleaned and would be ready shortly and that we should take our things up to the Club Lounge to wait, as our rooms would be on that floor anyways. So we did that. Our production crew was not only traveling with the 10 oversize and overweight gear cases, but we additionally had 4 large boxes of other equipment delivered. Due to the staff being overwhelmed with how many people were in the lobby checking in we received not even an offer for a bellman to help us with all the equipment upstairs to the Club Lounge. Instead, we had to take turns schlepping it all up there ourselves while one person waited in the lobby to watch the stuff the others couldn't carry.
Once we got everything into the Club Lounge ourselves, we thought OK cool we can finally relax and our rooms will be ready soon on this floor so we can easily get everything settled and get to work. Not the case. The Club Lounge was still filthy dirty from breakfast service (this was now 3pm) and the cleaning crew came in and made us move everything again with no help.
We waited and waited until 4:30 when we had to be out the door for work. The problem was that because we had so much stuff and no room to put it in, I had to bite the bullet and approach our job one man short who I paid to be on board to sit with all the gear in the Club Lounge while the rest of us went to work. He wasn't given room access until 5:30PM and the icing on the cake - the rooms were not on the same floor as the Club Lounge as we were told which is why we were told to haul all the gear up there in the first place.
I've never experienced such a low level of customer service all around from a Starwood Hotel or any hotel for that matter. I get it that the hotel was busy, but they also have the ability to forecast when they will be busy and fully booked so they should be prepared to accommodate all those guests with enough staff.
We continue to travel very frequently and are loyal to Starwood, but after this piss poor display of customer service we will never ever again stay at the Sheraton Grand Chicago. I'll happily pay more to stay at the W, Westin or ALOFT where we will get real customer service.

Checked in for a business trip last month. Jasmine and Shaun at the front desk smoothed out some reservation issues. They did an excellent job and were a great example of the high quality customer service you'd expect at a Sheraton. Nice facilities. Good location.

The staff could not have been more accomodating or helpful! Chicago is a fantastic city to visit and the Sheraton Grand is in a great location with awesome views of the river. We can't wait to return!

I look for high standards while at a Starwood property. This hotel was excellent. The property was clean and staff was helpful and friendly. Looking forward to my next visit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Coolgrandma our stay
was excellent. We enjoyed the river level access and bar area. The rooms were awesome. Very clean and comfortable. The amenities on the club floor were excellent. The staff was very responsive. The only thing we wished you had was a hot tub in the pool area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Perry714 Sheraton Grand Chicago - a great Riverfront hotel
Sheraton Grand Chicago is an excellent hotel and I enjoyed my stay, but two little issues:
1) I hung up that "go green" card on my door for 4 days in a row to stop the maid service from cleaning my room. My room was never clean, which is fine, which is what I asked for, but when I checked out my extra Starwood guest points were not automatically added to my account - I had to ask for it. I should not have had to ask for it- it should have been automatic.
2) the design of the toilets, at least in the room I was in, is horrible.
Every time I sat on it, my private parts either touched the porcelain OR the water - YUCK!! The seat is too low or the water level is too high or some combination of the two, but it's just a horrible design and it should have been obvious the first time anyone ever sat in it that these toilets are not acceptable!
I still recommend the hotel for its location and Facilities, but that was not a good memory to take home with me.
