It was my husbands birthday and he was traveling for work. So being his wife I thought of planning something special for him. With me about 12004 kms away in India wrote a mail to the hotel to make him feel special....and bang on....a choc brownie with champagne is what made his day with my special message. Thank you team...

Hotel was great and in a convenient part of town. The hotel was not too fussy with a nice contemporary feel. It felt efficient and not stuffy. However, a couple of minor points: The amount of cushions on my bed was ridiculous and I had to sweep them off to get in, suspect my wife would would have liked it...

Very much enjoyed my 5 nights at this modern style hotel. Located within walking distance to lots of restaurants, shopping, the Gold Coast and transit. Felt very comfortable walking in the surrounding area. The amenities were very nice. Breakfasts were delicious, coffee served in a French Press. Top sheet on bed is not standard; this is a European style. Sheet...

Bon Jour! Having never been to a Hotel Sofitel, I did not know what to expect. What a wonderful surprise it was! The beds, bedding, and pillows - let's say I have not slept that peacefully in years. My daughter joined me on the 2nd day and enjoyed soaking in the bath, and relaxing in the robe and slippers. The...

I stayed one night on business at this hotel. The room and amenities were very nice and comfortable. The hotel is in a very nice location. The staff were courteous and professional. I really liked hanging out in the lobby. I also ate in the restaurant which was really good.

From the first "Bonjour!" I knew I was in a wonderful place. The amenities, the room comfort, size and layout, the staff and concierge--all were top-notch. My only complaint is the lousy TV package--they could stand to improve by adding a much larger variety of digital channels. If you don't care about TV, never mind! Stay there!

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.
