"As the title suggests, it's located downtown in River North, within walking distance to a great number of cafes, restaurants, and bars. It's also not too far from the river, and has a couple of stations close by as well. So if you're visiting Chicago, this is a sweet spot to be nestled at."

"I am not sure what I should expect for 4-star hotel. Compared to my previous hotel without stars, this hotel has no bath tub, nor coffee machine. Room space is smaller but has every necessary things. Air condition can be set in a few range of temperature, but this is understandable because Chicago is normally cold. There was water drop in shower room, so I heard the sound of dropping almost all the time. Other than these, such as staff and location is really nice. In summary, I think for this price (about £60) this hotel is worthy. However, it should be considered that is it worth for 4 stars."

"Since I already pointed the good, I am going to tell you now the bad. If you book your stay and you pay more to get breakfast included, what they don't tell you is they will charge you %18 gratuity from the credit card you have on file with them. I Wich I had the choice to tip myself. Also I felt like a second class customer since I only can get one croissant with my breakfast and everybody else can get as many as they want. The other thing was the bose system in the room wasn't working with my phone. I could only listen to the radio. What a waste of a great music player. The third and most important thing was the mattress that wasn't comfortable. "

"great location. great staff who was extremely friendly. much better than another 4 star location that I stayed in subsequently. free wifi was also a bonus. great bed - so much so i overslept and missed breakfast (altho, i had just landed from a 20hr+ flight from sydney). given the free internet access, i think overall, i would have preferred to stay here for the next 5 days. having said that, the bathroom could do with a bit of modernisation. not bad overall, and wouldnt mind returning overall!"

"Stayed in the city one night for fun. The I/O lounge offered a great view of the skyline even when it was cold outside - very comfortable in the enclosed part. I can see how this would be a great attraction in warmer weather, but we enjoyed it even in cold weather. We went there for pre-dinner cocktails. Our server, Alexis, was really great. Friendly, engaging, and made our visit there even better. Our Old Fashioneds were really well prepared, and Alexis told us the bartender makes this cherry-vanilla syrup used in the drink, and was really tasty. She really enjoyed telling us about the drinks, and we had a nice conversation around it. Very hospitable. After returning from dinner outside the hotel we had a knock on our door. A staffer came to our room because we left an item at I/O, and they brought it to our room to return it. Awesome service. Highly recommend the Godfrey. Alexis is a ***** asset for the Godfrey. "

"It was beyond our exceptions! From the front desk, to the staff and amenities. The location is perfect too! We love going to Bandera's for dinner and it was about 5 blocks away. It's a short walk to the riverwalk and the best Art Museum in the World. My husband and I attended the Gaugin lecture there and enjoyed the special exhibit immensely. The Kenzie hotel had little niceties that when added up made it terrific. They had an umbrella in the room for rainy days, a mirror that has settings based on your day's activities-night, office, daylight.... Breakfast on each floor was nicely displayed ......and pretty good coffee too! Five stars all the way!"
