Positive Reviews

Convenient location..

Guests visiting to shop love being just one block away from the from the Magnificent Mile, while foodies exclaim over the many fine restaurants nearby. Grocery stores and other such amenities are not hard to find either. Sightseers note that the hotel is just around the corner from the John Hancock Center, and that it is a short walk to the beach, Navy Pier, American Girl Place, and several museums.

Friendly, welcoming staff

The front desk, housekeeping, and valet staff frequently receive rave reviews for their personable and professional customer service. Guests often note that they are greeted warmly by every team member they meet during their stay.

Clean, comfortable rooms

Most guests describe the rooms as very clean and cozy, with comfortable beds and all the appliances and utensils you might need in the kitchen. Though the rooms are no longer brand-new and not particularly spacious by Residence Inn standards, most families and groups find the suite layout provides enough space and privacy.

Negative Reviews

Tight squeeze in the elevators..

The Residence Inn Chicago Downtown Magnificent Mile is a former condo building, and several guests note that the elevators are a bit small for the big increase in traffic.

Breakfast is for the early birds..

Some guests find the breakfast area a bit too chaotic or crowded in the last hour or so of service, and opt to use their own kitchens or head to one of the many nearby restaurants for a more relaxed experience.

Technical difficulties and thin walls..

A few guests had trouble maintaining a strong connection to the complimentary Wi-Fi, while others struggled with the air conditioning. Some guests noted that the sound insulation between rooms could be a bit better, and a few guests on lower floors were disturbed by traffic noise.
