TripAdvisor Ratings

Maybe the cold weather affected my judgement
November 16, 2019

Good location and friendly staff. Rooms ok - not massive i.e. typical US size. The heater/fan was jolly noisy i.e. woke me up when it came on plus did not manage to get the hot water super-hot. But when it was 'feels like' -18 degrees C outside then maybe it was a battle for everyone. To be fair it was 'Good' (not Average) but not 'Very Good' (but i am only allowed to choose Average or Very Good.) Overheard they may be putting a restaurant/dining area in?

Friendliest Hotel Ive Ever Been To!!
November 13, 2019

My husband and I stayed at the hotel for our honeymoon! Robert, Anne, and Armica were the sweetest people! Rooms were lovely and spacious. Convenient location, awesome building! Thanks Robert for everything! You made us feel welcomed and we felt like we made a friend!! Highly recommend Robert and this hotel to stay at on your next trip to Chicago. We for sure will be back!! 5 star treatment at 1/4 of the price.

For fun

We stayed 5 nights and loved our small but affordable hotel. The location was fabulous, the rooms were very clean and the front desk staff were awesome. Adryan and Kyle were the best! Would definitely recommend the St. Clair for those who are in Chicago to tour around and see the sites. We were only looking for a bed at night and this was perfect!

Business Trip to Chicago
November 10, 2019

Pleasant stay. Personable and welcoming staff (from the front desk to the valet) makes up for the lack of amenities. I realize a 'boutique' hotel is limited however; travelling on business with early hour appointments it would have been nice to have a small continental service. Vianca was wonderful in providing recommendations for restaurants and making my stay enjoyable.

Work or Play, Here is the place to stay!
November 10, 2019

I have been there twice in the past month. Once for business, once for pleasure. Clean, comfortable, great staff! Location, location, location! Walked to nearly everything - with quick Lyft rides when needed. Ask Kyle for great places to eat, drink and save a little money! Thank You St. Claire!!
