Review & Rating
Nice hotel with a modern touch. It attempts to reflect a classy, calm, and cool oasis smack-dab in the heart of the city. There is a spa, gym, rooftop bar/lounge, and a brunch nook with the option for bottomless drinks such as mimosas and Bloody Mary. The breakfast is simple but overpriced so be warned. It looks nice, tastes nice, but it is not worth the tag. Unfortunately, the music choice in the restaurant does not reflect the high class aspirations that the hotel attempts to exemplify.
It feels like a heartbroken high schooler was brought in to choose the music. Bring headphones.
Nice hotel. Great location in downtown Chicago. Rooms are well equipped. Top floor rooms have a great view. Staff and service are great. Fitness centre was good too.
My only issue was with the light switches in the rooms. They are a real pain to operate - in some cases the lamps need to be unplugged to turn then off - really badly designed.
Had a GREAT TIME with JULIE!!! She’s the BEST definitely made our girls night! She was fun bartender. Highly suggest her. Overall, the Godfrey is a great place to go to with fun music to dance too! GO GODFREY!!!
Overall great atmosphere. Rooms are small but efficient. Lightning did not work by the beds. And most of the lighting is only on one side of the room. So difficult to work at the desk.
I loved it! They upgraded my room due to multiple stays at the hotel. The staff is very friendly and willing to assist guest with any issue.
Wasn’t impressed at all. To start views were horrible. Bed was really uncomfortable. Surprisingly the breakfast was amazing. Staff were very helpful. I personally didn’t think this was as nice as the reviews I read after my first two night we transferred to The Wit by double tree and the difference was night and day we stayed in a suite that was just amazing. With a beautiful City View. Rooms are very basic compared to other options in the area.
Toilet in my room was clogged when I arrived... Floor lamp wouldn't shut off with the switch so had to unplug it from the wall (Strange)... shower pressure was minimal, and the hot and cold is switched, so there was a very narrow zone right near "off" that was a good hot water setting. The worst, however, was the loud club music from the terrace restaurant/club that went on thru Midnight just below my room's window, which made it tough to get to sleep and the front desk said they couldn't turn the volume down as they had a large crowd of guests there... Overall it was not the worst hotel stay I've had, but it was far from the best. The hotel looks luxurious and fairly orderly, and is in a good part of downtown, but they fell a bit short on execution and comfort from my perspective.
Not 4 start service. Rooms are not well maintained. Our air conditioner only worked when not on 'auto' it's default setting. A quick we needed to discover ourselves since the hotel never fixed it dispute our calls. Bedside lamps also don't work. At least the room was kept clean.
You get what u pay for. Very upscale and friendly staff. I can't wait to visit again.
Very nice and modern Hotel with a great location. Clean and well-equipped rooms. I've had very pleasant stay. Would definitely recommend!!
The Godfrey was a great hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and really comfortable beds. The restaurant had a wonderful brunch, and it was relatively affordable. My only request would be a coffee station available in the lobby for guests.
We won’t be back for a stay. We made a reservation 2wks. in advance for a King size bed room. We arrived and they gave us a handicap room with 2 full size beds instead. Literally right above the rooftop lounge. Room was clean and bed was pretty comfortable. We complained about the issue but didn’t resolve anything since they were sold out of rooms. “The rooftop bar closes at midnight” the front desk explained. The loud music pounded louder at midnight up until 3am. There was no decent night of sleep. The only good thing of the whole experience is we laid down very nice & warm in small sized bed after some drinks at a local French restaurant. You’re forewarned, if you get a room on the south side and lower level floors above the outdoor terrace of the building, good luck in getting any sleep.
