U.S. News Review

If you've come to the Windy City to party hard, then the Hard Rock Hotel Chicago should be high on your list of potential places to stay. You won't have trouble finding this hotel: The building's slimmer top floors give it one of the more unique shapes on the Loop. And you won't forget where you are when once you get inside, either; pop songs vibrate through the lobby, music videos color the television screens and rock 'n' roll memorabilia fills display cases throughout the property. The hotel's Angels & Kings nightclub keeps up the revelry into the wee hours of the morning (which is the primary deterrent for families and business travelers, but the main draw for night owls). Though most travelers have a rollicking good time, there are some who complain about pricey extras, like Internet access and minibar goodies found in each room. (A word to the wise: Previous guests say you'll be charged if you so much as move that very pricey bottle of vodka.) On the other hand, many travelers are fond of this Hard Rock's elegant room decor, while the customer service garners high praise. Meanwhile, Chuck's — helmed by famous chef Kerry Simon — earns compliments for its classic American cuisine.
