2nd largest hotel in Chicago= 1 option for dinner?

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 23, 2013

Stayed here for a two day conference and overall the accommodations were up to par. My one complaint, however, would be that from fall through spring there is only one in-hotel option for dinner. Shula's Steakhouse is great but I doubt it meets some folk's budgetary constraints.

Unique Quality: Good location near Navy pier.

We booked via and got a great deal on this hotel, but I kept my expectaitons low, thinking they are gonna cheat us of all the amenities since we got a good deal. But that was not the case, we had our newspaper and daily service and the staff were really helpful! :)

Unique Quality: Our room had a living room and a bedroom all well equipped and well serviced. The flat screen TV and the well stocked coffee bar helped us have a greta time while here...:)

Nice hotel, Nice location

The room was very nice and clean and the hotel staff was very friendly. Our flight to Chicago got in really early and the hotel had no problem letting us do an early check in. They had a nice french restaurant, burger place, steak house and starbucks. They had a nice work out facility for a hotel and a small indoor pool. The pool was full of kids when they we were there. Overall a great hotel

Unique Quality: We stayed in a room called the Corner King. It was a nice and very unique room. Instead of getting your one simple hotel room window you get THREE! The pictures are views from our hotel room.

Directions: Near the Navy Pier

My fiance and i took a trip to Chicago in August of last year. We planned on waking up at 5:00am in the morning to shower, pack, print out directions to the Sheraton and head on our way to Chicago. We ended up waking up at 4:00am b/c we both noticed our electricty went out for no reason. We were planning on leaving around 6:00am and bum around Chicago until we were able to check in at 3:00pm. Sense we were unable to shower and get ready we called the Sheraton and told them our situation and as soon as we got there they had a room all ready for us to unpack and shower. Not only did they let us check in early but they also were kind enough to give us directions. My fiance and I were so thankful! We had an awesome room and an awesome view! We love the location. We love that we're right by boat tours and we had some drinks at a little cafe outside and just enjoyed the view! We really enjoyed our room service and valet parking. Everyone was so nice there and were very helpful. My fiance and I love, love, love Chicago! We're already planning a trip in July of 2008 and we couldn't imagine staying anywhere else.

Stay on the river, but near the shopping!

The Sheraton is a large hotel, moderately upscale, designed primarily for conventions.

Unique Quality: The big windows and curved walls in the restaurants counter-balances the beigeness of the decor.

Directions: Behind the NBC building

Unique Quality: From the hotel room we looked out to the river and to the highrise buildings including the Chicago Tribune building. A nice jogging trail alongside the river can be accessed right outside the hotel. Hotel has a nice exercise facility on the 7th floor.

"Chicago is the finest city in the world for the moderate, natural, average man of affairs in which to live. The New Yorker who says Chicago is a city of no luxuries is probably one of that constantly growing number who are insatiable in their greed for the softer things in life." Gustavus Franklin Swift, meatpacker & founder of Swift & Company

I took this photo of the Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers from across the Chicago River at the southeast corner of the Michigan Avenue Bridge & Wacker Drive. It's an imposing structure overlooking the Chicago River. The amazing thing about the hotel is that every room and suite has a view of either the Chicago River, Lake Michigan, or the city skyline (which are all magnificent!)
It's a huge hotel with about 1200 rooms, and 33 of those are suites.
For their guest's convenience, the hotel rooms include:

King or two double beds
Coffee Makers
Large Desk
Comfortable Furniture
27" Cable TV with CNN and Showtime
Pay-per-view is also available
video games
AM/FM alarm clock
Lighted mirror (great)
Luxurious bathrooms
in-room safes

The Hotel Facilities Include:

a. Shula's Steak House
b. Riverside Cafe
c. Esplanade Express Snack Bar
d. Spectators Sports Bar
E. Waves Lobby Bar

There is 24-hour room service
Fitness Facility
Indoor Pool
Message Therapy
Sun Deck

I can honestly say that it is a full-service hotel.

Unique Quality: Besides the incredible views, the spectacular service is impressive. The staff seems to go out of their way to please you. Your comfort is their mission.
For a romantic weekend in the city, a business trip to Chicago, or a family excursion, the Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers is a great choice if you value quality and service.
Note: the price is per person (US hotels never state prices per person, but that is what our choice is here)

Very busy hotel with not so funny doormen (how can they mistake a Englishman for somebody from New York??). Not a bad place, but no greater than the other business hotels in the area! Good location for sightseeing and if you can get a view onto the river then its a bonus!

Well designed big conference hotel, comfortable rooms. I found a $99-a-night rate one autumn weekend in 2003, using one of the major internet services. Convenient for the cultural attractions of the Loop and Michigan Ave. shopping.

Sheraton Plaze & Towers

by written on August 24, 2002

$125 with suites (2 rooms and parlor with hide-a-bed for $225)

Unique Quality: Location, location, service, wonderful views available, nice rooms, better suites. Starwood preferred frequent program! Not inexpensive but compared to others in the deluxe category in the area, a good value.

Directions: On the River a few blocks from Navy Pier, 1/2 block from NBC building, 2 blocks from the Magnificent Mile (shopping, Disneyquest, restaurants and more).
