    Beautiful hotel. I hope the pool never changes. A Chicago landmark

    $17.95/day for 1g wifi is ridiculous. To slap you again after "accepting" the wifi charge, the login page immediately takes you to their Facebook page to "like" the hotel. Seriously?

    pool is pretty amazing and spooky at the same time. original pool from the late 20's, love the original pool tiling.

    Cool Babylonian architecture. Starbucks shop less crowded than others nearby. Eno wine bar. Striking pool.

    An engineering feat when the above-ground pool was built in 1929, the pool has since had many famous visitors, including Olympic gold medalist Johnny Weissmuller.

    Start the day with a true American tradition, the breakfast at Lou Mitchell's restaurant. The traditional atmosphere will leave you ready for the day ahead. Read more

    This landmark hotel allows guests to bring one dog, no size limit. There is a $100 security deposit required, $50 of which is used as a nonrefundable pet service fee.

    Try ENO next door for Vino paired with great cheeses and chocolates. We make it a point to go every time we're in town

    The ICChicago's bar is pretty good, for a hotel bar.

    The pool is not the same as the "famous pool from that one old movie!" I was admiring and asked the hotel manager who let me down nicely: "Yeah, everyone thinks that, but this pool wasn't in it."

    They sure do treat you like royalty here!!! Upgraded to a suite AND sent up a special gift for my daughter for her bday. What a treat!

    Desk staff nasty when they were told of a reservation screw up. And $17.95 for 1Mbps wi-fi. Seriously? With premium room prices they charge for Internet? Get real!!!!

    Bar staff awesome: discrete, know their beers, offer topups perfectly on time.

    A wonderful place for a weekend away from home. The pool is famous and the food from room service is superior.

    There are lots of urban legends about what's inside the building's gold dome. The sad truth is that it's empty and just for decoration. Read more

    The Trump across the street is 10 million times better in terms of service and amenities.

    Excessive prices, small rooms, and the pool was under construction during our stay. Not overly impressed by anything except the arcitecture.

    Very nice hotel but it would have been nice if they had told us the pool was closed! Said the city won't let them put that on their website but I came here FOR the pool! Very unhappy!!!

    The quickest Starbucks ever! You would think long lines and waiting forever for a coffee especially on Michigan Ave, but no not this one. Super effecient!

    Awesome hotel. Buying gold Ambassador status is a no brainer. Historic tower has better rooms and the staff are great. Parking is pricy though so go down the block to save $20+ per night.

    Nice bar for older people.

    One of the best locations in the city, but disheartened by the very small rooms for such a high-end brand

    The front desk won't mail a letter. Short sighted. Had to walk 5 blocks to a post office. Huh?!?

    They charged the wrong card 345$ tieing up my debit money for gas and travel costs, parking was 65$ and the drinks and food are overpriced. They did Nothing to comp. Me or apologize. Never again!!!

    This hotel is such a disappointment from the service point of view. I am a gold ihg customer but my loyalty is not really paid off at this hotel. I wish I had a better stay.
