We've traveled around the world with SPG and I've become accustomed to not receiving the high level of amenities or services in the US, as we have enjoyed in Europe or Asia. For an Aloft, I wasn’t expecting a whole lot of perks or Platinum recognition, since the price point is much lower than other SPG brands. I was pleasantly surprised that everything at the Chicago Aloft was far ABOVE and beyond most Westin’s and Sheraton’s I’ve stayed at in the US. I’m Lifetime Gold and currently Platinum.
1) Check in: SUPERB! We arrived at 3am, the front desk clerk was extremely friendly and helpful. I chose breakfast as the Platinum option, this is by far the best perk with Platinum status, if the hotels have a nice restaurant. I had read that the hotel restaurant was really popular and had great food. Since I’m not a huge breakfast fan, buy my husband is, I asked if could convert one of my breakfast coupons into a drink coupon. The front desk agent quickly swapped out the coupon, no questions asked. AWESOME! When I’ve asked this before (it’s a typical Gold amenity), it’s like pulling teeth to get a downgrade ($15 value vs $20 breakfast value).
2) Room: Our room was spacious and had a beautiful view of the city. We had 2 large glass windows. There was a good sized desk and a chaise couch where you could sit and read. I liked the simple, modern décor and the functional side tables. There were numerous outlets around the bed and throughout the room.
3) Bathroom: The only downside of the room what that the bathroom only has a shower and we prefer taking baths while on vacation. The vanity is small and has a refrigerator below. Enough space for what you need it for
4) Closet: There isn’t a standard closed-door closet. It’s an open concept where you can hang a couple of items and put a few things in the drawers. Think IKEA cube layout for coffee, drawers, and a hanging system.
5) Extras: We wanted to try all the famous deep dish pizza places in Chicago, but we couldn’t eat all of it. On the last night, I really wanted to eat our leftovers, but it was cold. I called the front desk and asked for a microwave, they sent one up immediately, at no charge! We somehow left the do not disturb sign all day, and they didn’t clean out room. They quickly sent up fresh towels and extra water bottles
6) BRUNCH at Beatrix!!! The restaurant at the Aloft is a fabulous farm to table, healthy juice type restaurant. On the weekends, it’s PACKED! One of the benefits as a guest is that no matter what time you call the day/night before, they try to squeeze you in. We called on a Saturday night, we were able to reserve a table for 4 at 11am the next, Sunday. No problem. Another bonus is that on the weekends, brunch is served until 3pm (weekdays until 11am). You can use your platinum breakfast voucher for anything up to $20. It’s not a continental breakfast with blah food, it’s anything off their menu, including drinks! WHAT A DEAL. The food was DELICIOUS, the service was excellent - make sure you get a fruit juice mimosa. I had the cauliflower grits, yummy!!!
7) Location: The hotel is located in River North, it’s easy to get on the train or walk around. It’s perfectly located in downtown
For the price, amenities and amazing staff, you CANNOT beat the Chicago Aloft experience.
