Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Sax Chicago
good price, lovely room would recommendfrom vickyfos
When looking for a hotel we didn't want to pay a fortune but wanted a 3* or above hotel, we found that hotels in Chicago tended to be on the expensive side compared to other cities (Las vegas, New York, San fransisco).
We paid £125 a night taking into account the other hotels we looked at we feel we had value for money and would recommend this hotel to others.
t that bad!from WISCGirl
Yes, there was construction but I didn't find it any more disruptive than regular city noise. In fact, I stayed in my room late one morning to finish a presentation and hardly noticed it.
Terrific location with a VTK (Vong's Vietnam Kitchen) next door with fast take out service if you want something good eat but don't want to eat alone or order from room service.
Geat Stay Friendly stafffrom chubiki
Never againfrom eden9870
Good hotel good locationfrom Ifly4freee
The staff is very accommodating and pleasant. The overall vibe of the hotel radiates 'cool.' It is dark and exotic. The regular rooms are small, the colors are loud, but it all seems to work and very comfortable.
The hotel and rooms are spotless and odor free. The bedding is fabulous. The sheets are soft with a feather bed comforter. But as I said earlier starting to show signs of wear. The courtesy items in the bathroom are a nice touch, unexpected good quality, and they also supply q-tips and cotton swabs (left over from the Loews group). The bathrooms are big. Almost as big as the room.
The mini bar is packed with everything imaginable, but on the pricey side. Room service is hit or miss on quality of food and expensive. It works if you are hungry and don't want to go out.
The river north location is perfect. A short walk to State Street, North Michigan Avenue, theater district, and excellent restaurants. Forget Smith and Wollensky, not worth the high prices.
The Kazbar serves up yummy cocktails and bar food. This is a great place to watch for famous people and musicians who may be appearing at the House of Blues concert hall next door. If you aren't a member of House of Blues Foundation room, you should be. The Foundation room private dining room menu and food is GREAT in Chicago.
I highly recommend this hotel. One last thing beware of construction going on at the hotel. They are giving it a face lift. Lets hope the rooms are next before it goes down hill.....
BEWARE!! CONSTRUCTION!!from mommyof2crazyboys
Chicago- great place to visitfrom travelcat1
A plus for decor and fun; C minus for servicefrom luv_big_cities
The Hotel is fun. The decor is Vegas light, the location is spectacular, and the rooms are big, bright and fun.
The service was very mediocre for a Hotel in this price range. We arrived at 3:30 in the afternoon and our room was not ready for nearly 2 more hours. We weren't the only guests in this bind: the lobby was littered with clusters of folks waiting for their keys.
The cab line out front was more chaotic than it should have been.
Good Location, Get a good deal, thoughfrom GenxGem
This hotel is in a GREAT location. It is within walking distance to the Navy Pier (15-20min), Mag Mile (5 blocks), and Pizziera Uno (the original restaurant to do Chicago-style pizza - 4 blocks). It is also only about 3 ½ blocks walk to the Red Line of the El, which is one of the main lines to take you to Wrigley Field, the Chicago Art Museum, Millennium Park, and more. Also, within this hotel, there is a fancy restaurant attached (Bin 36) open for B, L, and D and an upscale bowling alley/martini bar called 10 pin. There’s also the House of Blues for which the hotel is named. This hotel is in the middle of a bunch of other hotels (including the new Trump Hotel which is being constructed) so there is no view of anything except other hotels and parking ramps. Don’t stay here for the view. Stay here for the location.
The windows actually open which meant that come outside noise could be heard. However, once we closed the heavy curtains, it was both dark and extremely quiet. The internal walls are thick and we didn’t hear a peep from the party going on across the hallway from us (phew). The rooms are small, however. We had an extremely small room. It was only enough to fit a bed. The television had to be placed on the side desk against the window instead of straight on so don’t plan on watching tv in bed!
There is a Crunch health club attached to the hotel. However, you have to pay $15 per day to use the facilities. There was only ever 1-2 people there every time I looked so they should really open it up to all guests.
•There is a hairdryer in every room, but it is in the closet, so look for it there.
•Call for turn-down service every night for a fun treat
•Bin 36 has a coffee bar for a quick java or a muffin. It’s nice when you don’t have the time or money for a full breakfast
•Want coffee in your room? Call the front desk. They’ll bring you a coffee maker and coffee free of charge.
•The 6th floor of the hotel has a business center for all guests that has a table w/four chairs and internet service. There was never anyone there as far as I can tell and we played board games there.
All-in-all, this hotel was not that memorable, but the location was great and I got a good deal so it was worth it.
Pricey, but thats Chicagofrom BengalNut
Top Local Tips for Chicago
Pass the Line at HOB Eat at the Back Porch or purchase something from the HOB store and pass the line! Great way to pass the line and get into the music hall!
Andy's Jazz bar An absolute must ! Great food and Music!! friendly staff Great night out
Fantastic Wine Bar There are two amazing wine bars. One is in the lobby of the House of Blues Hotel--called Bin 36. Great wine flights, cheese flights, and meats. The other is aptly named Chesse Wine Chocolate and it was also incredible.
