I've stayed at Aloft Chicago City Center for two stays (4 nights) this year and would not hesitate to do it again. The hotel management, environment, amenities, food, and overall experience here are exceptional. The only minus is a lack of SPG upgrades, but this is common for the Aloft and Element brands.
Let's start with the pros. The rooms I stayed in both times were well kept, modern, and clean. Room temperature was comfortable but not overly cold when I checked in. I like that on one occasion, the room had two desks that allowed two guests to work at the same time. The restroom, shower, and wash area are all well maintained.
The hotel is located a very short drive from the major work avenues (10 minutes to McCormick, Navy Pier, and Magnificent Mile). There are plenty of great local food options within close proximity to the hotel.
The restaurant attached to the hotel, Beatrix, is absolutely wonderful and always busy with hotel guests and locals. I like the Aloft touches in the lobby here with the stock ticker. Newspapers are available, along with Aloft amenities like a pool table, shared workspace, and printing station. The gym at this hotel is on the smaller side, though it doesn't get busy.
The only downside for this location is that as SPG Gold (and I assume Platinum), there are no upgrades for rooms. Again, this applies to Aloft and Element brands, but does not prevent me from recommending this property to future guests. SPG members do get the other good perks, including late checkout and bonus points.
It's rare for a hotel to get 5 stars from me, but Aloft Chicago City Center really deserves it. This is a hidden gem hotel in Chicago.
