Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile

Chicago, USA

The hotel

Thanks to a combination of French chic and a convenient location, the Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile is an extremely stylish venue from where to experience the very best of Chicago. Guest rooms offer a complete range of contemporary amenities and designer comforts with some delicious downtown surroundings helping you get into the swing of things straight from touchdown. As Navy Pier, Bloomingdales and the MCA are just a few steps from your front door it won't take too long to get amongst the action, with Lake Michigan's shoreline always providing the perfect setting on a warm day in the Windy City. After a good day spent sightseeing or browsing the boutiques, CDA is definitely the best destination to revive your senses with Le Bar offering an uber cool alternative to get you in the mood as you plan the night ahead. A 24-hour fitness room and free WiFi offer just a couple more reasons to stay at the Sofitel and if you're looking for any more, then just gaze upwards at the architectural designs of Jean-Paul Viguier, and you certainly won't be disappointed.

Location is great. Doesn’t rise to the level of the other 5 star hotels but a very solid nice hotel. Room was very modern and nicely decorated. View nice and electric screen nice. Not a fan of the “European” style without a top sheet. Did ask for one and got one. For the price picky commentary - not a super comfortable bed. Had some odd pillow… Read more
Location is great. Doesn’t rise to the level of the other 5 star hotels but a very solid nice hotel. Room was very modern and nicely decorated. View nice and electric screen nice. Not a fan of the “European” style without a top sheet. Did ask for one and got one. For the price picky commentary - not a super comfortable bed. Had some odd pillow top thing on it. I’m also super picky about tv. Size was great but not sure why these hotel chains can’t do a better job with the tv experience. Used to be better than mine - now much worse. No on screen guide and very laggy to change channels. There are no in room amenities due to Covid and some people in my group got more info than I did about that. They did bring a small fridge to the room when I asked about it. Read less

Great stay at Sofitel! Room included a PURE air filter that was running when I checked into the room. Great view from the 20th floor! Friendly and helpful stafff. Everyone wore masks. I would repeat this stay in the future. Great location as well.

The hotel is in a great area, very beautiful, and offers great amenities. Room was clean and comfortable. My concern was with check in.

We arrived a few hours early and the hotel had plenty of rooms available. But they charged us $50 to check in early. I know this is becoming more of an industry norm (trying to charge for everything) but I would not expect it at a hotel that charges as much as the Sofitel does for a hotel stay. Read less

The view of the sunset was lovely. The marble bathroom is spacious. The toiletries were of the best quality. The towels were big and soft. The people were welcoming. The… Read more

Having stayed at this hotel many times and over many years this wasn’t what I’d expect from the hotel. Terrible check in (I was bounced between 3 different people all of which didnt understand the process) I pointed out that I was a Diamond level guest which fell on deaf ears. I was told “next time book through our website “ I explained I was on… Read more
Having stayed at this hotel many times and over many years this wasn’t what I’d expect from the hotel. Terrible check in (I was bounced between 3 different people all of which didnt understand the process) I pointed out that I was a Diamond level guest which fell on deaf ears. I was told “next time book through our website “ I explained I was on business travel and my firm one of the largest in Chicagoland mandates Amex travel. I received an ok room but not offered any special service. Two weeks later I still have no record of my stay or points. Irony is the booking did show up on the Accord website . Still does. Read less
