Exceptional 10.0
One of the best hotels in downtown Chicago!
I booked this hotel the weekend of Nickelodeon’s SlimeFest and I couldn’t have chosen a more centralized location to everything. Most of the parks and sites are within walking distance, even for smaller children. We had an amazing balcony view of the city from the 12th floor. The shower with the waterfall shower head is to die for, literally! If I didn’t have to check out I’d probably still be in the shower right now. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and they made our stay that much better. The food and drinks were on the pricey side so be prepared to spend a decent penny if you choose to eat here. Other than that, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I’ve already booked this hotel again for a future visit to Chicago and will continue to do so with each visit.

Great place! Particularly to find a basketball gym (most of a half court) in a downtown hotel... or any hotel for that reason! We had a great trip to Chi town, kids only regret was not spending more time in the hotel!

Hotel has everything
My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights while in the city to celebrate an anniversary. Everything from the service to the amenities was superb. This is a mix-use building. You are sharing with residents that live above the hotel, so you'll need to keep that in mind when using the public spaces. The only critique I have is that housekeeping never replenished our bottled water once during our stay--not a big deal. We just made sure to call down or stop by the front desk on our way back from dinner to have more sent up. This hotel is in a great location. Just a couple of blocks off of Michigan Ave. A block from Chicago River Walk and a few blocks from Millenium Park. The L is also 1/2 mile straight shot from the front doors. We had great views of a small park and little snippet views of Lake Michigan. We could even see the Navy Pier fireworks from our balcony. We will definitely be staying here again.

Fair 4.0
Last minute family trip to city to enjoy Memorial Day. Went with Radisson because of the outdoor/indoor pool. Room was about $100 more than some of the other 4 star hotels I’ve stayed at in area but we chose this for kids to swim. Outdoor pool was nice but it was too cold. Indoor pool was not very well kept and it’s not a swim pool it’s a lap pool. Room was fine but it was a little dusty/dirty and beds weren’t very comfortable.
