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.

Me and my husband stayed at the Sofitel Magnificent Mile for our anniversary getaway weekend and we were blown away with the views in our prestige suite! The room has a corner tilted window which when standing there makes you feel like your standing on air. Such a great surprise feature! The hotel was so clean and modern ... with the unbelievable touch of Hermès toiletries! The suite was large and spacious. The staff even sent us a card for our anniversary and left some chocolate covered strawberries at turndown ... another great surprise. Anyone who stays here will not be disappointed in the slightest. Being very well traveled from Europe to Mexico to the states there are very fiew hotels this clean and I would say the cleanest of them all! Thank you to the staff for a beautiful experience!

The location is excellent and the staff are extremely helpful. The rooms are spacious and clean. Their bath products are very high quality and the mini bar is well stocked. I had breakfast in the restaurant and it was excellent.

Great location and even better service. My negatives are so minuscule that they are not worth noting. Nice feel overall, the Le Bar has great cocktails! Room service was great. I’m giving 4 stars because they do not have a full service spa on premises but they do provide spa services in the comfort of your room.
