Great location and beautiful views
Reviewed 1 day ago

The Renaissance on Wacker is a fantastic spot. The views of the Chicago River are amazing and the hotel has multiple bars/restaurants. The rooms are updated and very comfortable. If you're here in a time other than the dead of winter I'd recommend the rooftop bar and grill on the 3rd floor.

Great Service

Our check-in experience was very friendly and customer focus for our recent 5/19-5/20 stay. We were in Chicago for the weekend and to see the Wizard of Oz.

The staff sent a very nice gift to our room wishing us a good time at the show.
That was very special for us.

Beautiful Hotel with Perfect Location
Reviewed 1 week ago

The Renaissance Chicago Downtown is a beautiful and stylish hotel, with excellent service and amenities. The location is perfect! It's close enough to walk to most of the major attractions, restaurants, shopping, and theater, but steps away from the subway as well. The dining options at The Renaissance Chicago Downtown are very good, and reasonably priced. All of the hotel staff was friendly; going out of their way to accommodate us and make our stay special. Our room was spacious and immaculate; with a large, beautiful bathroom. The room overlooked the river and skyline, which could not have been more perfect. We absolutely loved the Renaissance Chicago Downtown, and our first time in Chicago as well.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the hotel. I had a river view that was simply stunning. The bed was very comfortable and service excellent. I also found the food to be very good. I was there for meetings held at the hotel and the facilities were very good as well. Highly recommended.

This hotel is centrally located near theaters, shopping, and the "bean." The staff was very helpful was restaurant recommendations, local maps, and suggestions. The room was comfortable (the beds were great!), and the bathroom was huge. Great decor. Will definitely return.
