Four Seasons Hotel Chicago Review

At the refined Four Seasons, guest rooms begin on the 30th floor (the hotel sits atop the tony 900 North Michigan Shops), so there's a distinct feeling of seclusion—and there are great views to boot. The elegant rooms are inspired by 1940s French decor and have spalike baths with Chinese marble. The lobby art is well worth a look, and breakfast at Allium is a great way to start the day. There's also a lovely spa and outdoor bar.

    Four Seasons (Ritz-Carlton) doesn't meet expectations

    We were so looking forward to staying at the Four Seasons in Chicago. Our corner lake view was limited even though we'd booked our room ten months in advance. Most disappointing was the service in the lounge; after 20 minutes of waiting the gentlemen in our group went to the bar itself, ordered and brought the drinks to our table. Also, parking was a problem while loading and unloading. Our daughter's boyfriend lives in Chicago and had to circle the block after having been told he could park for loading purposes and while the car was attended, near the theater door under the ramp complex. Then when he went to do just that, a different attendant overrode that decision and said no way. Also, the rooms are nice but dated. We could hear people in adjoining rooms on occasion. The manager was supposed to call me after our departure after being told about our problems; however, that call only came after I emailed the hotel, a couple months later. He offered nothing in the way of compensation, even though we paid a lot of $$$$ for location, mostly...evidently. Disappointed to say the least.

  • Chicago and Where Else

    We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.

    We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.

    Any add-ons in the area?

    Thanks. Read more
