This was the second time visiting this hotel. We originally liked it because of the river views and its elegance. It has been rebranded for a younger crowd with thumping music blasting in the lobby, graffiti on the ceilings and massive amounts of computer stations. The river views remain nice. I will not be returning though.

Absolutely beautiful hotel! Got a room with a view and it was so worth it! Views of downtown Chicago was amazing! Room was very clean. Beds and pillows where extremely comfortable! Best sleep I’ve had in a hotel. Staff was extremely kind and helpful. The food in the restaurant in the lobby was delicious. My kids went swimming at the pool. Water was nice and warm and the pool was very clean. Plenty of comfy lounge chairs to sit and relax while kids swim. The location of hotel was perfect. Super close to all means of transportation. Close to the “L” and close to to Metra. Several parking garages near by also if you need to park your car. Lots of shopping near by and tons of delicious restaurants near by too. The hotel is close to all attractions in downtown. Walking distance to the bean and theaters also. I can’t say enough excellent things about the Renaissance! My kids loved it too. Will definitely be back.
