French experience in Chicago! Posted May 27, 2015 on Expedia
From the moment we walked in, the hotel staff was friendly, greeting everyone with Bonjour! The room was clean, had a view of part of downtown Chicago, and we felt we were in a four star hotel (which is what we bid for). The Hotel is exactly where they said it was: Water Tower district of Chicago. This was important to us because we were there to look at Loyola Chicago's Water Tower Campus, and it was only a three minute walk. We were also a two to three minute walk to the subway and getting around was very easy. They offered umbrellas every time it rained, were helpful with getting cabs, and each afternoon after a busy day in the city, we were excited about heading back to the Sofitel to relax and regroup. The food at the Sofitel is amazing, from the complimentary croissant and strong coffee they offer every morning for early birds, to the lunch and dinner in their dining room. Their lobby is inviting; they have several areas in the lobby for guest to interact outside of the room, and the staff serving drinks downstairs is friendly. What else can I say? We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return soon to The Sofitel!
