"Swanky, convenient to mag mile"
This is definitely an upscale hotel in a convenient location. I didn't like the nickel and dime charges. For $300 per night, it should have included free wi-fi. I also had to pay extra for early check-in. The restaurant had a limited, eclectic menu.

"Beach Location"
We spent a night at the resort on our way home on vacation. It is a very pretty location on the shore of Lake Michigan. Front desk personnel were friendly and quick. The room was clean and comfortable. We ate at the on-site restaurant and the fish buffet, on Friday, was good. Breakfast was very good. The waitstaff were very gracious, helpful and friendly.

Sheraton Grand Chicago

301 E North Water St, Chicago - Map
We came to Chicago for 4 days for our daughter's graduation from Loyola University. We loved the location of the hotel, the proximity to Michigan Avenue and the River. We selected this hotel because we wanted a large hotel with a fabulous lobby and lots of space to hang out. This property met our requirements in every regard. The room was very comfortable. The beds were high quality and the shower was unbelievable. The staff was very helpful and extremely pleasant. We will recommend this property to all of our friends and family traveling to Chicago.

"Wonderful Hotel!"
The Hotel was very clean, as was the room. The staff were very helpful and pleasant We enjoyed the breakfast and the staff was delightful too. The food was delicious. The door attendants were plesant, as they helped with are luggage and got us a Taxi. The only downfall was the room was very, very warm and the temperature on the thermostat,did not reflect the actual temperature of the room, we did not sleep well either night and was unable to get a fan when requested

"Great Location"
Person at check in was just obnoxious. We arrived at 3:30pm, had to wait an hour for our room to be ready. Booked a room with two beds and was told they were unavailable but they would upgrade our room. We ended up with a king bed, stuck in the corner of the hotel, in addition it was a handicap room. Wow, great upgrade, thanks. Would of complained right then and there but just too tired after the flight in. In addition, once I was handed the keys I asked if there was a happy hour. I was told that all the information was included in my key package and then off he went. Mind you it was not busy, we were the only ones at the front desk. Only used the breakfast buffet once during our stay and it was quite good. Cannot comment on happy hour, found it much easier to just go purchase a drink from the bar rather than wait in a long line for a cocktail. Location of hotel is just perfect. You are right in the middle of a lively neighborhood and within walking distance to many attractions. On a side note, I found it funny seeing a note in the room that said something like, "We hope you enjoy the sounds of the urban area of our city". Note came with ear plugs so you could sleep at night. Would I stay again . . . . . . . yes, simply because of location.

    Pack your swimsuit and make sure you’ve got your sunglasses, because your Chicago beach trip is about to begin.

    The shores of Lake Michigan provide a number of beaches for you to explore; Chicago has 41 km of beach altogether. Head over to 57th Street Beach, located south of Promontory Point. Designed by Olmstead & Vaux—the designers of Central Park—this beach offers plenty of sand to frolic in, a lifeguard station, and a food stand in the summer. Lake Michigan rarely warms up all that much, but the braver among you can go for a swim in its blue depths. In winter, the lake gets even colder. Feeling particularly daring? Join one of the local Polar Bear Swims and see how long you last in the icy waters.

    If you’re looking for some sporting action, North Avenue Beach is the place to be. You can play volleyball, rent kayaks, or splash around in the shallow waters to your heart’s content. You’ll have plenty of company; North Avenue Beach is extremely popular with the locals.

    When you’re beachcombing in Chicago, a beach hotel is the perfect place to stay. You’ll be right near the water; just put on your board shorts and amble out of your hotel and straight to the shore. You won’t need to worry about taking public transportation to the beach, or getting the frown of a cabbie when you track sand into his not-so-pristine cab. Some beach hotels offer the use of sun loungers, chairs, and other items that can make your sandy adventure more fulfilling—inquire at the desk to see what they can do for you. knows you want to enjoy your beach trip without worrying about all the details. Let us find you the best discounts on your accommodations, whether you want to stay at the beach or at another type of Chicago hotel. We’ll handle the nitty-gritty, leaving you more time to construct the perfect sandcastle.
