Overnight continuing education trip. I've stayed here several times. Great staff and super comfortable rooms and bed. Spent some time in Le Bar with friends. Love the atmosphere but the bill was awfully high, even for Chicago.

Sofitel Chicago Magnificent Mile, Chicago, United States of America
It was horrible. I booked the hotel, got a confirmation, arrived at the hotel and was told it was booked. I had to sleep in the lobby until the I could find another room in the area. I was absolutely disappointed. There is no chance I will come back.
