Francisco was great. Fast and courteous check-in. First time to Chicago and was greeted at the door and shown where to go. Beautiful hotel. beautiful rooms. They really made you feel at home and at ease when traveling so far from home. Seeing the artwork is a big bonus and beautiful.

Hotel's Favourite
I stayed in 21C Chicago several times for one night stays, mostly on business, in last 2 years. I do like the concept of 21C Museum Hotels quite a bit, and enjoyed stays in 21C in Nashville and Kansas City. Chicago is not an exception: great location, fresh look, provocative modern art galleries, friendly service. Special thank you to Brenda who always makes sure to make my stay, well, special! Being Platinum with Accor certainly helps with suite upgrades, as well as other freebies, like amenities, complimentary drinks and gifts. This week it was great event in the Main Gallery "The Art of Mixology: Battle of Bartenders". The guests were able to attend for free. We enjoyed it, I wish it were not tequila based drinks...))) Lure Fishbar is now open, wasn't impressed by the service there, unlike in hote, but willing to give it another try. Different management team there, independent from hotel. And do check out Art Galleries in 21C, free and open to the public!

Great hotel in a really convenient area. The rooms are clean, bathrooms updated and clean & housekeeping is attentive. Be sure to explore the hotel's art exhibits! Jose was so very helpful and kind. He knows everything about the area and made our stay that much more enjoyable! This was our 2nd stay here and we will stay again.

I had an amazing stay at this hotel as always and loved the exhibit. The location was perfect with so many dining options around. The room was amazing. I booked through a. Third party and there was some confusion about the reservation. Christian was excellent and made sure my stay went perfectly. I appreciated that and will definitely be back

We had a group booking and experienced a hiccup with our reservations, but the 21C team and Helen especially helped us get all checked in without issues. I felt a lot better with her care and attention. Thank you to the lovely team and people at 21c!

Friendly and attentive staff, roomy bedroom plus large bathroom, perfect hotel location. Penguins, need I say more? Ceramic, not real… starting my collection :) Rotating art pieces throughout the lobby were conversation provoking, engaging and unique. Made our stay feel elevated and special.

Great service and rooms. Got to meet Steve Wilson the curator of the hotel art exhibits. Great location in the city very central and accessible to other museums and restaurants in the area. Trader Joe’s across the street was convenient too. Jose was very welcoming at the door and made an effort to get to know his guests and make folks smile!

21c Chicago was everything Mark & I expected. Traveling from NJ Chicago was our 1st stop on our 14 day on our M&M's 2024 Road Trip. My husband and I had a restful and rejuvenating overnight stay. The hotel's demographics is fantastic as it sits in the heart of the city. We are near to everything and within walking distance! 21c Chicago's uniqueness, creativity and hospitality are superb. The staff is very hospitable, professional, warm and inviting. We had the pleasure of meeting Jose 1st upon our arrival who not only left a lasting and memorable impression but is also was a jack of all trades. He is very helpful, ready and willing to assist at all times. Helen checked us in and with her bright, welcoming smile. Her positive energy assured me that I had made a great right choice in selecting your establishment to accommodate our overnight stay. Later, we enjoyed some an appetizer and I had one of the best espresso martinis I've had in a while. Upon our departure, we had a satisfying breakfast at the Lure Fish Bar our server was Jake so personable. Overall we must say our stay was wonderful. We will be back!

The hotel was an amazing experience for my birthday thanks to Francisco who greeted and made our stay and my birthday a phenomenal experience hands down. The suite was clean roomy, fully stocked and very accommodating and the art work and lure fish bar were definitely an added jewel. I didn’t get to experience the spa services but definitely plan on coming back to indulge in what it has to offer and look forward to seeing what new art work will be available for viewing. 5 Stars
