Good 6,0
There was a lot of hidden fees, that was not disclosed when I booked my room. There was not a microwave in the room, and also the breakfast was not free like it stated. I did enjoy the view that I had.

Lovely hotel
The rooms are not cleaned daily for a multiple night stay, so I was a little disappointed in that. The front desk staff was very friendly and got us more coffee for the room. We didnt get toilet paper as requested. It's a beautiful hotel, however. Loved the lake view from my room! :-)

Decent Stay
Premier King Suite room with “city view”. Pros: nice big comfy King bed, the location of the hotel is pretty decent for shopping, site seeing and walking around. The room was rather large but not at all what we expected. Cons: $60 per night parking in a very small and tight garage. Scratched our vehicle going into this garage. We were placed on the 7th floor. No view of anything decent at all besides the neighboring buildings. The tub in the picture for this room is a one person tub, not a jetted jacuzzi tub as it appears in the pictures, nothing spectacular at all. The shower was very small as well. No speakers in the room to listen to music, very outdated for the price and location. It is a waste of time and money to stay here if you’re not on a high floor with a good view. No breakfast or gym. We will not stay here again.

Poor 2,0
not all bad but I’ve had better for the price
The hotel is really nice. But the rooms don’t match the photos that are advertised. It’s like they show lots of pictures and don’t get me room the room was nice but the view that was shown wasn’t what I received. Also the parking was terrible, there should be some sort of explanation before you arrive. You basically have to check in before you park. In order to get into the parking garage you need a parking code which you have to go inside the lobby for. I’m not sure if we were around one of the party rooms but I could hear the music of other rooms word for word as if I was playing it myself.

Uncomfortable and Loud
We were here for a short anniversary trip and did not enjoy the hotel that much. It was clean and the staff were friendly but the room was hot the entire time we were there and there was a LOUD party in the room next to ours. There were supposed to be quiet hours but the group was bumping their bass in their music since we first got there until we left. We didn’t spend a ton of time in the room but what we did spend in there was not very pleasant. Unfortunate since it’s a great location. Hopefully they do better for their next guests, though I would not recommend this hotel to others.

Enjoyed Our Stay
This was my first stay at the Swissotel and it was a pleasant experience considering the limitations due to covid concerns. Location was perfect for walking around downtown. The only drawback was that the pool was closed and I'm not sure if that's temporary or permanent. If the pool is open during my next trip to Chicago, Swissotel will be hotel of choice.

My favorite hotel was a disappointment
Room and location were good. Lake view was amazing but I was not happy with customer service. Check in personnel was impatient and rather rude while explaining how to access and pay for parking; parking garage was below par (had an odor and very tight) espec for $60/night. Our room was not made up, windows were not clean, and safe did not look sturdy.

Rest and Relax here
In a Covid world this property made check-in simple and seemless. Easy access to Chicago amenities, Michigan Ave., Chicago River, etc.
