      We liked the facilities, especially the kitchen and living room. The location was excellent.

      The beautiful suite and the hotel location

      close to the mile and shopping; had a kitchen

      everything was great

    • Single
      4.6

      I liked being close to the city sights and the lake front.

      A little overrated, as the hotel felt somewhat run down and in need of decoration. It was also very dark and the in-room amenities were inadequate for a 'deluxe' room.

    • Older travelers

      Great location, very good sized room (it even had a kitchen, which wasn't advertised), quiet and comfortable. Nice roof terrace! Cleaning staff were very nice, as were the doormen.

      Some of the reception staff were unhelpful and disinterested, one of them quite rude. Allowances could have been made for travellers who were trapped due to the volcano, but instead staff insisted that we go each day to an internet site, at cost, to rebook, else they would charge us a higher rate. We ended up leaving and moving to a more helpful hotel. Rooms need a little attention (broken bed frames, etc).

      Great location and nice hotel for the money. The waiters at the hotel's restaurant 'Francesca's' were wonderful and we would definitely go back.

      The Seneca Hotel has a great location, right behind the John Hancock Building, steps away from the exciting Michigan Avenue, which is packed with fabulous shops. Besides, Lake Michigan is right at the end of the street and in case you need a rental car; a Hertz rental location is just one street away (Westin at Michigan Ave). Ok it's not the most modern looking hotel (especially the kitchen of the suite looks old), but it gives an excellent value for your money; not only in the sense of location, but it has a good breakfast facility and free WiFi internet too. And after we complained about our noisy shower we got easily upgraded to a spacious suite, so they have friendly and helpfull staff too! I would stay here again.

    • Older travelers

      Its convenient to visiting our family that lives in the city and we do not need the use of a car.

      I like the fact that whatever you asked for you get--the staff was always willing to help in any way which

      Location is unbeatable. It is located one block to Magnificent mile. The room is very spscious and was equipped well. House keeping servie was good. Staffs are always with smile and are very helpful although they do not know much about public transportation to famous museums and metro stations. You can feel living in Chicago rather than visiting there.

      Thet have central air conditioning system and you cannot change your room temperature, which is sometimes very inconvenient. Some of electric bulbs are burn out. Some of the towels were not so soft and worn out.

    • Single

      Comfty with the kitchen and free internet.

    • Couple

      it has a great location and we were greeted in a friendly way.

      There was a loud refrigerator in the room, but we just unplugged it!

    • Group of friends
      8.2

      The shower in my room did not have very good water pressure.

    • Couple
      10.0

      This hotel was incredible in every way. The rooms were spacious with no detail spared. The staff were not just friendly, but actively interested in your plans, willing to offer their opinions on places to visit, and bend over backwards to ensure a comfortable stay. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious. The entire hotel was beautifully styled and furnished. We wanted to stay in Chicago just so we could stay at the hotel!

      We did not have a single bad opinion on this hotel - it was 100% ideal.
