Beautiful Boutique Hotel Aug 12, 2009
During our visit to Chicago, we had the pleasure of staying at The Seneca Hotel & Suites.

When we first arrived, we were kindly greeted by a door man dressed in a traditional red uniform who also helped us with our luggage. He then introduced us to the valet attendant who took care of our car for us. Parking is expensive, but you can have access to the vehicle 24 hours a day. All the guys outside were always very helpful and on the ball. Whether we needed something from our car, help with luggage, or just hailing a cab, they were great!

This hotel is very conveniently located right next to The John Hancock Building and a block from Michigan Avenue and Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, as well as Water Tower Place, Neiman-Marcus, Bloomingdales and the Oak Street boutiques. For entertainment, the Art Institute, Museum Campus, Oak Street Beach, Navy Pier and Rush Street’s nightlife are also very close by.

The lobby was beautiful and had a small seating area just off to one side with a beautiful large grandfather clock. Not only was the lobby nicely decorated, but so were the elevators and all the hallways. When we first arrived to our room, it was more like a one bedroom apartment. There was a living room with a TV, an adjoining dining room and a small kitchen with dishwasher, stove, large refrigerator and a microwave oven. The bed room was large with two queen size beds, a large cabinet with a TV and a large dresser. There was also a good size walk-in closet. The bathroom was a bit small, but had a whirlpool tub and a shower combination. My only complaint was poor water pressure when using the shower, but that is the case at most hotels.

This hotel also offers free high speed internet, has a small fitness room and a rooftop sundeck. We were also lucky enough to have a clothes washer and dryer right across the hall in the stairwell from our room. This made it very convenient to wash a couple loads of laundry. There is a restaurant attached to the hotel, the Saloon Steakhouse, but we didn't have the chance to eat there. We did have breakfast at the hotels Chestnut Street Cafe, and it was good, but there are so many other places to eat in this city!

All the employees we encountered were very friendly, caring and helpful! The next time we are in Chicago, we may stay here again!

This charming hotel is located on the heart of Chicago downtown. You would not find modern, clean lines of standard hotels in this place. The hotel shows off traditional architecture and plush designs.

My room was a standard guest room with a small kitchen. It was very nice room – big window overlooking a complex of residential buildings. The bathroom was awesome, with whirlpool tub. The kitchen was great – fridge, four-eyed stove and conventional oven, a microwave, sink, and cabinets. There was no eating corner, though – no dining table and chairs. And oh, I couldn’t get over the faint gas smell from the stove. I guess it’s because it’s an old building. Or maybe because it’s been years since I used gas stove. I don’t know – it just felt kinda weird around the kitchen.
