Every employee was very hospitable and made me feel very welcomed comfortable during my stay. Never had any issues that you sometimes have. Would definitely recommend and stay at this place again. Spent most nights at the bar instead of clubs and had a wonderful time with friends and the bar staff.

The Sofitel has become my place of choice for weekend trips to the city, you can walk to the best shopping and some of the best restaurants in Chicago, plus parking is quite easy in this area. The staff is always friendly and the rooms are always as nice and clean as expected. Breakfast in the restaurant is a highlight,...

The Sofitel Chicago is a nice hotel, no doubt. We found a tremendous deal online for our one night in the Windy City. I liked that they let us check in early. That way we were able to get everything out of the car and have the room situated. The rooms are on the small side. Great views! Excellent bathroom,...

This was a return visit and once again was excellent. We have two boys (11/12) and one has severe allergies. The restaurant staff were amazing. We had a separate menu prepared every day which allayed any fears. The room was spacious with fantastic bed linen. The bar is also excellent. The location is also superb. We'll be returning again.

The hotel is two blocks from Hancock tower. The building itself has an architecture design that makes the hotel a very attractive place to be. The location is perfect, the staff is very friendly and I would recommend this place to everyone.

Went for a weekend away from home and a wanted a place close to the Mile without the crowded shopping traffic. The Sofitel was always a place I wanted to stay growing up, and sadly I was disappointed. I stayed on the 12th floor, and the though the room was nice, the hotel seems to have lost the luster of...

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighbourhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.

“The only thing that bothers me is that the hotel does not put a top sheet on the beds. This wouldn't bother me at home where I am the only one that touches my comforter. It's not a deal breaker as I'd bring my own but it might be disconcerting to others, too.”
