Great hotel, great location, but no on room coffeePosted Dec 23, 2014
Loved everything, but no coffee maker in the room is just crazy. I'm guessing that was to make you go to the lobby and pay $5 for a Starbucks.

I am from Chicago, and I wanted to get a room for my birthday as a treat for myself. I wanted a nice King Bed, good views of the city, and a pool with a hot tub. I got a Corner King Room on expedia. When I got there, the concierge noticed it was my birthday, which is nice. He claimed a Corner King on the 4th floor was the only one left. I can't recall exactly my response but I made it clear that was disappointing for me. After two minutes of him clicking around on the computer, he said he found a corner king suite, and he would give it to me. I was very happy to get the upgrade. The room was better than I expected it would be, 3304. The best thing is the view. It looked over Lake Michigan, Navy Pier, the river, and some downtown area, including the Trump Tower. There "may" be better views out there, but this was awesome and breath taking, and was 100% satisfied with the view. It was actually a foggy day and I still was impressed. The room had two bathrooms, a living area with a tv, a separate bedroom with a tv and with window, and another bathroom with a separate tub and shower. The bed was great, very comfortable. The room would impress anyone I know. It has all the bells and whistles one could expect for a hotel to have. It's not clear to me if they charge for internet or not or pool access, but they didn't charge me.

Coming back every night felt like coming homePosted Dec 17, 2014
Location: On the river, a couple of blocks from the Magnificent Mile, in the Loop, yet set apart from the rush and frenzy
A first-rate and very comfortable hotel, friendly and helpful staff, just the right scale, a good range of quality services without being overwhelming, very well-located. Fantastic beds and we enjoyed the room lighting. Coming back every night felt like coming home. Located on the River, a couple of blocks from the Magnificent Mile and walking distance, even in bad weather, to good restaurants, shops and attractions. Our room overlooked the River, the Navy Pier and the Lake, so we had a sense of openness and nature -- sun and light and air. We felt close to everything but not trapped in a big city. Maid, doorman, concierge and restaurant staff all went out of their way to help us.

Can't beat views and location!Posted Dec 15, 2014
Pros: Location, location, location.
Cons: Give me a coffee / tea machine in the room. Pillows, while lovely, are too large and may hurt your neck. Hotel is expensive, especially parking.
Location: Chicago is one of the greatest cities in the world, you don't need my help!
Can't beat the centralized location to not only the Mag Mile but State Street and Millenium Park as well. Pay the small up charge for a lake view - you will not be disappointed! Rooms are large but missing a coffee machine - don't know what you've got until it's gone! Small complaint however on an excellent hotel!

The room was excellant. The bed very comfortable. I liked that the bathroom had both a tub and a separate shower. We ate at two of the restaurants and they both were delicious.

Expectations not met by the facilities.Posted Dec 15, 2014
Pros: It was in the middle of Chicago, a good taxi rank and quick access to interesting places.
Cons: Fix the plumbing. The reaction to a running toilet should be relocate the guests to a room that isn't lousy right now, not a day later.
Location: Nice view on the river down to the lake, provided you're in rooms from xx01 to xx09. The other views are not very good.
Checked in late at night for our anniversaryand the lady who assigned the room couldn't have been nicer. Went to Amuse for a drink and the barkeep was a jerk. Up in the room, the toilet was filling every minute or so. Called down to switch rooms before we unpacked and all they could do was send a man up. He worked on it a while and said that was all he could do. At 2am it started running again. I called the desk to say I was going to turn off the water supply to get some sleep but expected something done in the a.m. Ruby said she would leave a note for the morning staff. After a great breakfast in the Geneva restaurant with truly professional staff we asked and the concierge seemed more concerned with what she couldn't do than with fixing it. I asked for the manager and was told he was busy. When Jeff got free he offered to switch our room. His smile was plastic and his tone patronizing, but full marks for being the one person there who stopped making excuses and fixed it. He offered us free drinks in Amuse, I hope not as a further insult but rather because he doesn't know how bad his night barkeeper's attitude is. The new room had plumbing with a slow trickle instead of the on/off filling. We closed the door and that quieted it enough to sleep. 2 rooms, 2 leaks--I wonder how much water is being wasted through poor maintenance. Lee shoved a note under the door that apologized for the issues and wished me a "happy birthday." Did not meet expectations.

Swissotel is not worth the price...Posted Dec 9, 2014
Cons: bring the coffee service in the room
Swissotel has recently undergone changes. The coffee service in the room is not available. Bad idea!
