U.S. News Review
The Hilton Chicago has an interesting history: The 1968 Democratic Convention riots took place at its front door, and the presidential suite has hosted every U.S. President since FDR. Yet despite its relevance in American history, the Hilton Chicago fails to impress some of its visitors. Recent guests say this property is a bit of a letdown compared to other Hilton outposts, citing sub-par customer service and tired guest room decor. Still, the spacious accommodationss — many of which have two bathrooms, and all of which house flat-screen TVs, high-speed Internet access and touch-panel concierge services — are popular with recent guests. The Hilton Chicago also features an indoor pool and easy access to the Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium and Grant Park (plusses for those visiting with kids), not to mention a business center and ample meeting space. And whether you're here on business or for pleasure, many visitors recommend the 720 South Bar & Grill as a good end to a long day.
