The Sutton Place Hotel
Travel Blogs from Chicago
Stayed at Sutton place which was off of Rush near Michigan Ave (Ed Haft got the room for us). It was right by Gibson's Steaks which is where Ed Haft's family owns and gave us a gift card, great food, one of the best places in Chicago.
We went on the Architecture Tour, Hancock Building Observatory, Field Museum (Genghis Khan, Egypt, …
... randomly selected' - they don't answer phone calls (Sarah apparently should have emailed them to let them know we were running late, the phone sits idle). However, the experience was wonderful. Between the four of us we tried nine different cocktails (Sarah estimates twenty different alcoholic components) and the presentation of each was amazing. It was like watching Heston Blumenthal at work when the components were brought to our table - Bunsen burners, dry ice creating ...

We had quite an adventure finding the blue line train back to the airport. It took over an hour so we were so stressed we immediately called into Shoeless Joes Alehouse and Grille to chill and watch the highlights of the Chicago Bears football game that we had passed earlier in the bus ...

So it was back to the hotel, a quick change and then off out to Soldier Field for the 'behind the scenes' tour. Upon leaving the hotel I noticed that there was something different, something I remember just couldn't put my finger on it... That was it, it was raining. As I had packed for a summer holiday it was a case (pardon ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Sutton Place Hotel Chicago
I travel to Chicago about once every other month or so. I have stayed at many hotels including the Wyndham, Hyatt Regency, and the Hyatt on Printer's Row. The Sutton Place is unquestionably on another level. The rooms are amazing. Great views with the floor to ceiling windows. The CD/DVD player with the surround sound is great. The beds are fantiastic and the soundproof rooms help to ensure a good nights sleep. The bathrooms, by far and away are the best part. The deep soaking tubs are fabulous. The fresh orchids are a nice touch as well.
My husband and I, who are both in our early thirties, stayed at the Sutton Place Hotel In Chicago from December 30, 2004 to January 3, 2005. I will start by saying that we have very high standards when we travel. Unfortunately, the Sutton Place Hotel did not meet our expectations.
Sutton great location
My husband and I have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Sutton. Its a great location close to great restaurants and bars on Rush. The room was great and the staff excellent I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
IT DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER!!!
My husband and I have stayed at a number of four plus star Chicago hotels recently, all of which have been great to outstanding, but Sutton Place is tops!! We had a corner room with an absolutely breathtaking view. Ask for a lake view it's worth the extra money.
All of the staff was very friendly, they made us feel more than welcome. The location is unbeatable, great restaurants, bars and shopping right outside the door. We were only planning to stay one night, but the room was so wonderful and there was so much to do in the area we just had to stay another night. Excellent!!
I would like to commend all of the staff for the service that I received. Anytime I called for an extra sheet or even a fork to eat food I had brought back from a restaurant with, in less than five minutes there was someone at my door. After a late night I was hungry and had some food left over from eating out earlier and I needed it heated up. For no charge, my steak was heated up for me, brought up on a tray with a glass of water, A1 sauce, silverware and fresh flowers. At three in the morning this was a great asset to my stay.
Let me start out by stating the location of the hotel is marvelous.
The service was excellent. Staff was very knowledgable about surrounding area. Rooms were clean and had a feel of home. Location is close to whatever you want to experience. I will stay this Hotel again.
We chose the hotel because of its location off the Magnificent Mile. It is uniquely situated in a more neighborhood-like setting close to fairly decent restaurants. The service at the door was impeccable and inviting upon our arrival, and each time we came and left the hotel for walking and driving trips. Valet parking service was fast and efficient. The room we had was beautiful. It was fantastic coming back from dinner and a jazz club to find the bed turned down, chocolates on the bed and soft jazz playing from a very good stereo.The limitation is the concierge service. We found it weak, although the people were quite nice. In most places, the concierge staff appears delighted to offer dining and entertainment options and delighted to follow through with obtaining reservations. The coneirge staff here was far more reserved. Would we stay here agin? Absolutely! Just spend more time planning your own outings.
