We always enjoy staying at the Congress and spent a few days here over Thanksgiving. Check in was super easy and our room was available earlier than we anticipated. We had a lake view room and there were no problems. Security guard Javier gave us a tour of the hotel and the Gold Ballroom and the Fontana room and other places. The location of the Congress is perfect for us and the view from our room, 915, fantastic. Yes, it’s an older hotel and some areas show their age but it doesn’t negatively impact my stay there. This has been and will be our place to stay when in Chicago.
This was my first time staying here. My boyfriend had stayed many years ago and we were going to Chicago for my birthday so we decided to stay here. The 2 girls at the front desk, Margerite and Nicole, epitomized customer service. They both went above and beyond for us. The architecture is gorgeous and they graciously gave us a tour of the Gold room and the Florentine room. The bellmen were extremely friendly. Our breakfast was amazing, fresh and hot and served with a smile from Martin. We will definitely be back.
Wonderful view from our room. And it’s an amazing hotel
I absolutely loved staying here. We had an AMAZING view of the lake!! The place has old world charm and history that my husband and I were mesmerized by. As we were reading about the “Gold room” in the lobby a very nice security guard asked if we would like to see it. We all gasped at its beauty as he turned on the lights. He said “That reaction gets me every time.” It is my favorite hotel I have EVER stayed in and I cannot wait to return!
