TripAdvisor Ratings

Location and clean!
April 17, 2019

We stayed here for our babymoon in Chicago. I chose the hotel based on location, price and the fact that it was refundable. Was it glamorous? No. Was it safe, clean and right in the middle of where you want to be? Yes. Honestly those are the only 3 things I care about. The elevator situation isn’t ideal. Our room was not ready until after 4 but they held our luggage so it was fine. When we came back after 4, along with everyone else, there was a giant line and quite a wait for the elevators. Both were working but they’re barely above European-sized. We received a discount for the pub across the street which was good. The coffee in room was decent. The bed was very comfortable which was important to a 7-month pregnant woman and I was grateful it was feather-free! I usually have to ask for that! The bathroom was nice. The room was small, but I’ve stayed in smaller in Europe and NYC. Unless you plan on spending your whole trip in your room, I would recommend this hotel.

More like a 4.5!

This place is extremely clean and they make the most of their tiny footprint downtown. The location is easy walking distance from shopping and restaurants. There is a Garrett's right across the street! The rooms are small, but brilliantly laid out for efficiency. We upgraded to a deluxe because we needed a desk and a chair; it was well worth the cost. There are two suggestions I'd make: the heater is pretty noisy (we turned it off at night) and the glass shelving in the bathroom seems pretty unstable; I stopped using it after a shelf came off in my hand. Happily, Kyle and the other people on staff did a fantastic job of ensuring that our stay was as comfortable as possible. We would absolutely stay here again.

This is a great hotel if you are looking at budgeting your money. We loved it. We got it for 3 nites for $81.00 per nite plus tax. It had everything we needed. Very clean. Front desk was very nice & helpful. Close to everything. We would definately stay here again!

Tastefully renovated, great position, service and heating issue let us down.
April 13, 2019

We just had a 3 night stay at the St Clair. We didn’t get off to s good start when we arrived at 4.30pm and our room wasn’t ready. We were asked to wait for our room and not given an ETA. my 4 y.o daughter needed to use the bathroom and I was told to use the hotel or pub across the road. Our small family room was ready at 5pm. It was compact, had 2 double beds and about a foot of space on either side of each bed. it was tastefully renovated with lots of added functionality like USB charging points, microwave and small fridge. The heating stopped working on the first night and we woke up freezing. We were offered another room but ours on the second floor was easy to access the stairs, so I asked for the heating to be repaired and it was. This was a bad choice as te heater stopped again on the last two nights. We were given a heater which helped to defrost us and check out. Aremika and Erika were about the only helpful staff there. Others were unfriendly and not interested in helping us. Service needs improvement.

Great location, modern rooms, great value for Chicago accommodation!
April 12, 2019

My boyfriend and I were visiting Chicago for the weekend for some pizza and a concert. We are budget travellers so St. Clair was the most affordable place we could find. No regrets staying here! The lobby was beautiful and well kept, our room was clean and modern (standard king and switched to premium king for one night). The bed and pillows were to DIE FOR! So comfortable. The only negative thing I can say about the place is that our room for the first two nights had a terrible view. But nothing major or concerning to us! The location of the hotel was perfect and so convenient. Close to lots of shops and restaurants and majority of the places we wanted to visit downtown which was great! The staff was friendly for the most part, but our favourite was Lynée. She was very kind and took great care of us! She was positive, energetic, and helpful. Thank you for contributing to our awesome weekend! :) Next time we come to Chicago, we will definitely be staying here again!
