Beautiful hotel! Poor execution
October 20, 2018

The hotel has a lot of potential but due to it being so new it fell flat for me. I was traveling with my mother and we had to change rooms multiple times because the water wouldn't get warm. My mother spoke with the front desk agent Kyle, who checked us in and he came up to do literally nothing and have us move into another room with the same issue. I called down later and was told to let the water run for about 30 minutes or so because it was cold outside, which was totally understandable and it worked!! Also we literally kept getting locked out of our room everyday because the keycard wasn't working, but apparently it was nothing wrong with the keycard. Our keys were apparently made for one day by the same individual that checked us in. A young man by the name of (pardon me if I misspelled it) Jaywuan explained to us the mistake and apologized, he also offered to help us carry up groceries. I feel like if ALL the staff was properly trained on what to do, how to do it, and what's going on in the building the experience would have been a lot more appealing.

Very Accommodating

I had technical problems with the original room I was assigned, but Ketora and the staff at the St. Clair house was gracious and quick to make sure I had a great experience. Will visit again. Many thanks,

Amazing bed!!
October 14, 2018

Booked this hotel last minute on for a friends trip. Hotel is still new, very nice. Me and my girlfriends loved the vanity mirror that lights up and the beds were to die for. Only negative was i could hear the doors of other guests being closed in the hallway.

Chicago is just super expensive and we found a decent price for this hotel. The rooms are beautiful, brand new everything. Very clean, everything worked , nice selection of channels. Comfortable bed with nice linen. Front desk staff friendly and professional. We will be back, hoping the rates will stay affordable

Every thing was great
October 09, 2018

We stayed during the first week they opened. We had a king room and I have to say the bed was the most comfortable I have ever stayed in ever. They seemed like they were still under renovation as we saw lots on constructions guys in the elevator during stay. But the staff was great the shower was just amazing. Loved fact it was a shower and not a tub. That was a big deal for me. Price was great and location is perfect for visiting the city.
