Overview

Recent guests report stellar service
Expensive rates for room quality

Offering impressive views of Navy Pier, The Magnificent Mile and Millennium Park, the Swissôtel Chicago is most popular among recent guests for its unbeatable location. And because it's situated on a quiet stretch of Chicago's East Wacker Drive, guests say the hotel allows travelers to get close to the downtown bustle without the added city noise. The only common gripe is this Swissôtel's expensive parking fees, which some guests were able to avoid by parking in a public lot a few blocks away. Still, travelers who have stayed here are willing to put up with parking woes, saying that the property is top-notch and the staff is quite accommodating. Plus, members of Le Club AccorHotels, the brand's loyalty program, can pay for rooms with accrued points. Along with its convenient position amid the downtown cityscape, Swissôtel also boasts spacious rooms with marble bathrooms, LCD TVs, iPod docking stations and in, some rooms, Lake Michigan and Navy Pier vistas. Among its other amenities are a fitness center, an indoor pool and a spacious event center; the hotel also houses three restaurants – Geneva Restaurant, The Palm Restaurant and Amuse – all of which garner consistent praise from travelers.
