My sister and I booked a last minute trip to Chicago from New York and had the best time ever. We saw the Claridge had availability still for the night we were staying in town and booked the room right away. Trever & Cookie were exceptional at check in and made us feel so special and welcomed us to Chicago. We loved the shared spaces and location of the hotel as well as the room! That night they offered wine taste in the lobby where were were able to meet Lea, the Director of food and beverage who was absolutely so wonderful! We will definitely be coming back to stay again!

Don't fall for the fluffy advertisement. This hotel was genuinely such a let down. They advertise a spacious room, false. Advertise that robes will be provided, false. Advertise their coffee bar that's open seven days a week, then why was it closed at 9am on a Wednesday? The whole place just lacks so many basic amenities. There's only one microwave on the second floor for the whole hotel to use. We asked if they had silverware or plastic wear for our leftovers, they had none. The room was clean but not as spacious as advertised. The bathroom is impossibly small. Just truly a bad experience all around. The only redeeming quality was the location which is nice for shopping. But definitely wish we had stayed somewhere for the price we paid.
