  • Family with children

    Traveling with my (adult) son, I wanted to indulge a little and we went probably for the best place in Chicago. The hotel is perfectly located, it's high class, close to shopping and to animated nightlife. Hotel staff is very friendly and professional.

    When booking the room I have specifically asked for 2 beds in the bedroom. None were available when arriving. With an extra $100 we ended up in a suite with a sofa as a second (uncomfortable) bed.

    From the front desk, to the concierge,to the housekeeping staff, the service was impeccable. Perfect location.

    Needed a little updating

  • Older travelers

    Nice large room with a splendid view and one could open the windows to get real air.Staff all very friendly.

    The decor was dated, a lot of things were worn and a bit shabby, the crockery was crazed. No breakfast buffet and the food was mediocre. It does not measure up to either the Ritz Carlton or Four Seasons reputations.

    Not one snaffu.. Our best city getaway ever!

    Great location. Great hotel. Great front desk help.

    Service was extremely slow at the bar on multiple occassions Curious that this Ritz is not part of the network. We enjoy the Ritz but do so as a frequent traveler.

  • Family with children

    Clean room great bed. Restaurant only fair.

    The reataurant was slow. We had a family dinner with 3 kids, arrived on time at 7:30. Still waiting for dinner at 9:00 pm

    The one thing that kept popping back into my mind while staying at the hotel was "this is excellent". And then I realized that if it wasn't, it wouldn't be the Ritz Carlton. So all I have to say, that covers it all: this hotel, with the included spa, is truly excellent!

    The staff were very helpful and welcoming. My room had a fantastic view of the city and was exceptionally clean. All services/facilities were excellent. Would highly recommend the Ritz Hotel Chicago for a holiday.

    We loved everything about the hotel. They upgraded our room at no charge. We came back to the hotel after sight seeing and were surprised with a handwritten card and chocolate covered strawberries. The entire staff was beyond polite and helpful. They made our trip pleasant and memorable. We will hopefully be able to stay here during our next visit.
