Chicago's Worst Hotel

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 28, 2014

This hotel is awful. Nasty dirty bathrooms, and a staff that is rude and lazy. Don't waste your time complaining; they don't care. And don't bother to verify things with the front desk, they say one thing, and do another. Usually nothing.

I think pictures say it best, so here is one of the nasty ring around the toilet. They said it couldn't be cleaned, but when I took a towel with just a little water, (shown in pic) it started to come off.

Don't bother to put the do not disturb sign on, they will knock anyway, and won't apologize. They just don't care about their guests.

Unique Quality: The staff is horrible.

My boyfriend and I stayed at The Tremont Hotel, off of Chestnut Street in Chicago on our last trip; it was a great place to stay as it was in between Michigan Avenue and Rush Street. Any shopping you want to do can be done on Michigan Ave and the great night life and bars are on Rush Street.

This hotel was in the perfect location and was really reasonable!

Perfect Location

I got this hotel room on Although I did not know what hotel I was staying in till I purchased it, this was a great option. You can choose your star rating (4 stars) and location (Magnificent Mile area) I was 3/4 mile away from Navy Pier and right next to Mike Ditka's restaraunt. The hotel was older, well appointed and comfortable.

Unique Quality: Loved the close proximity of the lake. we ended up doing some night swimming-FUN!

Intimate European Style Hotel in Chicago

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 10, 2003

"This is magnificent. What wonderful people! We have not been disappointed. Above all, we shall remember the warmth and kindness of your people." Queen Elizabeth II to Mayor Richard J. Daley, July 7, 1959

The Tremont is located on Chestnut between Michigan Avenue and Rush Street, which is two blocks from the Water Tower.

It's elegant, upscale, and was completely restored in 1996, keeping its traditional English style. Mike Ditka's Restaurant is here also

Our room was quite lovely with its charming English decor. We had cable TV, iron, hair dryer, radio/CD player, beautiful tile bathroom, refrigerator, and room service.
Available is two-line speaker phones and computer modems, in-room safes (Which I used), Concierge service (Which I also took advantage of.)
The hotel has healthclub facilities, restaurant, Dry Cleaning Service, Maid Service, valet parking with In and Out privileges ($35.00 a day, and that is why we don't drive in the city).
I've only stayed at the Tremont one time, but I would love to return to this charming European hotel.j

Unique Quality: The Tremontis only steps away from fine dining, shopping, and entertainment on Rush Street and the Magnificent Mile.

Check In Time: 3:00 p.m.
Check Out: 12:00 p.m.

Its location is perfect for all the fine shopping locations, great restaurants, the theatre, and most of the night life in Chicago.
It was voted the #1 Boutique Hotel and the #1 Romantic Hotel by

The hotel has 130 rooms and suites and Penthouse hospitality suites feature 11-foot ceilings, fireplaces, whirlpool tubs, & wet bars
for a much higher price.
Note:The Tremont House (located next to the hotel) has 12 fully furnished suites with kitchens for long stays.j

Quality and conevenience - Great Price!!!

by written on April 5, 2003

Located only a block off N. Michigan Ave, you can't ask for a better location.

We got our room off Priceline, and believe it or not it was only $45 for the night. So it was by far the least expensive accomodation in the Magnificent Mile area.

Unique Quality: Voted #1 Boutique Hotel 2002 and #1 Romantic Hotel 2002 by viewership!

We stayed in a two story, two bedroom, two bath suite. It was very nice, and was a FREE upgrade from a regular room. We got in too late to use the pool or fitness room.

Directions: Located on Chesnut between N. Michigan Ave and Rush St.

Tremont Hotel

by written on August 25, 2002

Unique Quality: This is an hotel pretending to be luxurious... But in vain. They don't match high class of hotels. There are a lot of little details which are negligible while single but produce not very good impression in bulk.
The best thing about this hotel is its location - right in downtown, two steps from the Hancock Tower, Also they have a good pianist in the lounge.

We (my husband and me) also stayed this year in August for two noghts at the hotel "Tremont" and I completely agree with the positive comments about this hotel, especially about its location, which is really almost perfect, especially for a short stay in the city, like ours was. I can really suggest everybody to go to this hotel while in Chicago.
