Why We Love This Hotel

  • This classic 1920s-era building is both contemporary and cozy, including rooms with pillowtop mattresses, cable-knit blankets and spa-like showers
  • A full US$9 million renovation was completed in late 2018, updating every guest room to create a more refined, residential style that mirrors the surrounding neighbourhood
  • For a casual night out, visit the onsite Boutique Bar, featuring craft cocktails, local brews on draft and light bites
  • Close to numerous iconic Chicago destinations, including Second City and Gibsons Steakhouse, one of the city's most popular restaurants
  • Visit the Chicago History Museum, Lincoln Park or the original Playboy Mansion, just a block away

"I was only there for one night, but the hotel exceeded expectations. Staff was consistently friendly and helpful. I was in and out quite a bit and never passed a staff member that didn't make eye contact and say hello. The room was compact, but fully functional and more than adequate for my solo trip. Everything worked and was well maintained. Ample hot water, water pressure, good bedding and towels. I was on the back side, zero noise from the outside. Excellent wifi."

It's in a very safe, walkable neighborhood with services, restaurants, etc. near by. About 3 blocks from the Red Line stop at Clark/Division which worked great for my trip from Union Station. The 3rd Coast Cafe on the corner was great for lunch and dinner. Good food, excellent servers.

they could have been more understanding. It was an oblivious mistake. They could see from my change from days to two, that I mistakenly picked the incorrect month. It is very disappointing to loose my money .

I mixed up my dates and lost the money I paid, they were unwilling to move me to the correct date.

The Claridge House is in a great location. It was peaceful. It is within walking distance to drug stores, Starbucks and restaurants.

I was charged a $100 deposit in addition to the bill for staying at the Claridge House hotel. It is not clear when I will be refunded this. Also the hotel did not give me a printed invoice upon checkout. They said they would email it to me. I have not received it yet. I'd prefer a printed invoice upon checkout please. Is it a secret?

Nice hotel - great location for walking especially to Michigan Ave, State St etc.
Other Comments
Room was nice but quite small - they "upgraded" us to room with fireplace which was nice. Bathroom is really small but when you're staying downtown Im sure every square inch is at a minimum. No validation or help with parking - the parking garage is right next to the hotel which is great, but min $60/night
