Positive: Location, the SMELL! Amazing scent running through building. Beautiful lobby and nice room. Very modern and inviting. Negative: Not anything they can do, but very loud and obnoxious neighbors to or room. Slamming doors all night and arguing.

We recently stayed at Hotel Arlo Chicago during our visit to the city. The location of the hotel is truly outstanding, deserving a solid 5/5 rating. It's situated in downtown Chicago, and we didn’t feel unsafe during our stay. ✨ The cleanliness of the hotel was fine, and the staff was kind and helpful, which made our stay even more enjoyable. However, there were a couple of aspects worth mentioning. Our room was in front of the elevator resulted in some noise disturbances during early mornings and late nights. Additionally, our room had a window facing another building, which meant we didn't receive any sunlight. This was fine for those who prefer a darker room for sleeping, but as visitors eager to explore the city, it was a bit disappointing not to have a view to wake up to. I understand that there are limitations in space planning, but knowing in advance that most rooms face other buildings without daylight would have allowed us to consider requesting a room with a different view. Lastly, the cost of our stay was on the higher end. (We booked the hotel online 2 weeks in advance, and also there was maraton during our visit, these might cause of the higher cost as well) Despite these minor things, we enjoyed our stay at Hotel Arlo Chicago.
