Lucky Charm of a St. Patrick’s Weekend Visit

Several friends and I experienced a brilliant St. Patrick’s weekend stay at the Hilton Chicago. Considered ground zero for the parade with the hotel bustling with guests, the staff and service remained top notch. Giving a special shout out to Stephen the bartender in the hotel bar near registration. He was especially attentive and personable. Stephen even remembered one of my friends was drinking Sam Adams the night before. To be expected, the Irish bar in the hotel has a cover and lines on St. Patrick’s Day. You are just a block to the parade and a few more blocks to Riverwalk to see the greening of the Chicago River. Did I mention we marched in the parade? Had my boots shined by Curtis Shoeshine Service beforehand. Curtis shares many tales of the hotel’s storied history and Chicago politics! Rooms are goodsized with 2 bathrooms in most. Stayed in 2039 and room overlooked side street. Some subway rumblings from afar but didn’t bother me. For cheaper delicious breakfast fare try Yolk a block away. We had a top of the morning experience which included a chance sighting of a leprechaun! Collapse

We were there for a weekend conference and we were fortunate to get a great deal through the sponsors. This is a classic old Chicago hotel with a great history. It has been maintained in the grand style even after renovations. Our room was very spacious room with a decent view. The room was clean, comfortable and well serviced every day. The location is fantastic for walking to some of Chicago's best attractions and restaurants. Local trains and buses are nearby and the taxi service reasonable because of the location Collapse

As a Hilton Honors member there are so many things I enjoy about many of the grand Hilton and Waldorf properties, but i will agree with the reviewer who notes that this property is "just okay." When we arrived at the hotel there was a doorman out front who didn't even say hello or assist with opening the extra heavy front door. Check in was smooth and easy and the bellman who escorted us to our room was nice, but the room was just okay. Most notably we called about a backed up shower drain and it doesn't appear that it was ever addressed. The breakfast buffet was fairly spectacular. It would be pricy if ordered daily, but with the bed and breakfast rate it was very reasonable. Most disappointing was our attempt to eat at the on site Irish pub on St Patrick's afternoon. All morning long my girls had been telling me how hungry they were for corned beef and soda bread. Well, with an Irish restaurant in the lobby of the hotel it seemed like a no-brainer. We walked back to the hotel after the parade and queued up in a VERY long line. After waiting in line for almost an hour FOR FOOD we were approached by someone who told us that we couldn't eat there because children weren't allowed in after noon on St Patrick's day. Furthermore, they wouldn't even do take out food on St Patrick's day. I find this ridiculous and disappointing. First of all there is a parade from 12 to 2pm. While I can understand placing limits on an establishment when it is a genuine bar environment or even during later dinner service hours, but at NOON when there is table service for a lunch meal? If the concern is that my preteen might see misdeeds by those who may have over-imbibed, then the lobby of the hotel and even the streets of Chicago should be off limits after noon. We were directed to another restaurant at the other end of the hotel, the one where they serve breakfast. When we arrived we were told the restaurant was closed, but Kristina, the manager was very kind and accommodated us. Sadly, there was no corned beef on the menu. Kristina also accommodated my kids craving by requesting to have some corned beef and soda bread sent up later to the room. Now my lunch story gets a little bit more entertaining as my pre-teen, who could not eat with us in the pub, dropped her phone between the side of the booth and the wall as we were dining. Seeing her struggling under the table, several managers came over and worked with us for about 20 minutes to help us successfully fish out the phone. That was very kind Kristina certainly did help to turn our frowns upside down. My only point is that with so many people now choosing to travel with families, it would seem that the hotel should seriously reconsider adjusting their policies to allow those families to dine in all of their on site establishments during reasonable family dining hours.

This is the famous Hilton Chicago, provably the biggest hotel here with more than 1400 guests rooms. Huge, impersonal, cold. Something that does not reflect any personal environment. As a Hhonors member I always try to choose their properties but this was just okay. Big rooms, no lounge, with extremely expensive buffet. The room was big on a high floor (as I like) but definitely too noisy. The windows do not protect from the noise and cold coming from outside. This definitely needs to be fixed. The view was spectacular on Lake Michigan, though. Collapse

The rooms are dirty, dark, boring, noisy. Beds are terrible. The hotel is very old. Rooms have little windows and views are awful. Restaurant are bad. The hotel is massive. Nothing elegant or exclusive. It is 2 star hotel. You just want to leave as soon as you can. I was upgraded to an executive floor. I cannot imagine how bad a regular floor may be. Collapse
