    Amazing place!

    From check into check out our stay at the Royal Sonesta was a delight. The staff were friendly and helpful. The location was perfect to explore the best Chicago had to offer. And the price was more than reasonable. We will be back!

    Hotel was very nice. Did not like all the homeless people hanging around when we came back after the baseball game.

    They held $100 each night of your stay for incidentals on your card. This was taken out of our bank then it would be refunded. Would have been nice to know ahead of time to make arrangements for the hold. Also we were told it works take 3-5 business days for the hold to come back into our account.

    I’ll choose another hotel next visit

    Hotel needs a little refurbishment. Carpet stained and worn, big cracks in our sink. Holes in the elevator flooring. One member of the desk staff was very rude.

    The Royal Sonesta is a nice hotel. Conveniently located near many tourist attractions and numerous excellent restaurants. The in room entertainment is lacking and is my only complaint

    We'd Come Back Again

    We had a very nice experience. The room was spacious and clean, the bed was comfortable and the staff was very friendly, helpful and welcoming. We would stay here again!

    We really enjoyed this hotel! It was clean, perfect location to walk to everything downtown, staff was quick and friendly, amazing views! Our only complaint is that we were on the 17th floor and whoever lived in the condos above our room were extremely noisy! Next time we will ask for a room on a lower floor.

    A "good" hotel, but some concerns

    Pros: -For the most part the staff was good to excellent -The room was great- beautiful, up to date, and clean! -Beautiful outside terrace to sit outside by the pool Cons: -Not notified when checking in that I needed to notify if we wanted the room cleaned each night- so the next day was a surprise. -Hotel constantly ran out of towels, having to make multiple phone calls to get correct number of towels. -Hotel is connected to an apartment building. Several users from the apts were so rough, my kids had to leave the pool area for safety one day. Also, although there was signage that no smoking was allowed on terrace and in pool area, apt residence ignored that, and hotel did not enforce.

    3 days staying with a room and 2 days for other room but no daily cleaning, not new towels to change. Faucet in the bathtub looses, fell into my feet. There is no microwave in the room, and the mini firdge doesnt work well, i didnt feel it is cold for my water and wine. $200 for a night with these service, i dont feel it is worth.
