    Stylish and Relaxed Luxury.
    Just stayed here for a 3 day board meeting. Located in the heart of Chicago's Gold Coast, the Sofitel is a block from Chicago's Water Tower and the Magnificent Mile. I've been to Chicago many, many times, but this is now my favorite hotel in Chicago. The architectural design is amazing. I love love love the outdoor lounge with groovy couches right on Rush and Chestnut where you can hang out with friends or clients and order yummy cocktails. The rooms are cleanly designed. The food and beverage is outstanding. The service is top notch. A pricey place to stay, but if you can get a great deal on the rates, or if you can afford it ... stay here! You'll love it.
