    Design of the hotel and rooms. Great location with all shopping at a walking distance .Excellent service and very friendly staff .Very good breakfast at a reasonable price and served at your table thus avoiding the standardized and noisy buffets one will have in most hotels.Cafe des architectes is one of the best restaurants we experienced in Chicago.Nice atmosphere all over the place especially in the bar . Definitely an excellent address in Chicago .

    Very good

    The Prestige Suite was very spacious, the decor was nice, and the housekeeping service was excellent.

    The plumbing in the room is very loud, when water drains from rooms above it sounds like someone is tapping on the wall; the south facing exterior makes loud popping noises as the structure heats up and cools down (day to night). The views from the east side of this hotel are nothing special.

    We first stayed in the Sofitel Water Tower soon after it opened. It is still a beautiful hotel, well-kept with very charming and friendly staff. The position is excellent, being close to Michigan Avenue but very quiet for such a central location.

    Fabulous

    Nice Hotel very comfortable and a good location

    Am still surprised about house movies seemed a little steep in cost, you have to have a look at the flow on effects of in house meals and drinks in the rooms which would come from making these items free.
