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.

Very well located, fancy lobby and comfy room. The problem is the breakfast: the service was a mess, complet lack of management, over 20 minutes just to get your order. But even worse is the fact that whem I booked the room the breakfest was included, although NOBODY at the hotel was able to tell me what could I ordered without aditional charges.… Read more

But even worse is the fact that whem I booked the room the breakfest was included, although NOBODY at the hotel was able to tell me what could I ordered without aditional charges. It´s not about the money but if something is included should be Crystal clear at the menu what to order in this case. Summarizing, take your breakfast elsewhere and enjoy the hotel. By the way, the housekeeping is very well done. Read less

Our stay at the Sofitel was wonderful. Beautiful hotel, clean comfortable rooms and a great location. Easily walk to most of the highlights Chicago has to offer. Staff is courteous and friendly. Le Bar is classy and great for sitting by the window and people watching. The views from the room are spectacular. Wouldn’t hesitate to go back.

The room was gorgeous. A bit of inconsistency upon check in. We were told one thing, our friends told something completely different and we came on the same Travelzoo promotion. Service in the breakfast area bordered on ridiculous. Food was tasty but overly priced. I would come back again however.
