Sofitel Chicago Water Tower

Chicago, USA

The hotel

Thanks to a combination of French chic and a convenient location, the Sofitel Chicago Water Tower 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, the Café des Architectes 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.

This is a terrific place to stay. Convenient location but off the frenzy of Michigan Avenue. My room was clean and comfortable and had a terrific chaise on which to sit and work. The bathroom was large with a nice tiled shower and a large tub. Staff was helpful and a newspaper was provided in the morning. Would definitely stay here again.

As much as I like this French chain and their Hotels. Chicago was a failure on every level! Employees just drop the ball left and right. Once you complain, the manager is correcting or trying to correct by some comps just to run into the next situation of failures to start all over again! Biggest disaster is the Front Desk and Bell Staff. Wonder… Read more

Biggest disaster is the Front Desk and Bell Staff. Wonder how they got the rating they are riding on. That said, the rooms are nice,....but that's about it! Read less
