The hotel is dark and creepy. The elevators get stuck and the entire hotel is straight out of a horror movie. It's old, poorly kept, and very dark.
Light switches- looked cool but couldn’t find to turn in some lights. Took shower in dark
The location was terrific. It was only a few minutes from the train. The view of the city was tremendous. My daughter (whom I was visiting) and I enjoyed the hotel's 2nd floor lounge and the ground floor cafe for a quick drink or bite to eat. And up and down the street there were a great selection of restaurants, interesting and vintage shops, bookstores and cafes. We love to walk and the location was perfect for doing just that. On my final morning, I appreciated being able to check out, have my luggage stored by the hotel until closer to take-off time and then hop on a Blue Line train for a relatively quick and painless return to the airport.
There were two negatives. I found my room a bit cold, and turning up the heat didn't seem to make much of a difference. On my last night, a large group seemed to be throwing a loud surprise party for someone in the hall outside my door.
Staff are unresponsive. Left an item in the room. Have emailed multiple times and gotten no response at all. Once this hotel gets your money they clearly don’t care about you any more.
We got stuck in the elevator and couldn't get help luckily I was able to push the door open so we could get out. Also couldn't go up the stairwell because our key wouldn't open any doors. Staff didn't seem apologetic or claim responsibility for the elevator getting stuck or stairwell doors that were locked so you couldn't use them even with a key.
Occupying two landmark buildings in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood, The Robey Chicago, a Member of Design Hotels, sits at the six-way intersection of Milwaukee, Damen, and North Avenues in the Northwest Tower known as the Coyote Building and the adjoining old Hollander Fireproof Warehouse.
The 89 guest rooms range from 215 to 675 square feet and offer amenities such as rooftop pool access and complimentary Wi-Fi. With an interior design described as minimally chic and industrially raw, to mimic the contrasting Art Deco and warehouse styles of the original buildings, the hotel is stunningly built with hardwood floors and walls of glass to contrast polished concrete and exposed brickwork. All 69 of the Tower Rooms in the Coyote Building offer king sized beds, apart from the Landmark Queen rooms, which feature queen sized beds. The 20 multi-bed Annex Loft rooms all offer a lounge area, a workspace, a bathroom with a shower, and city views.
The property lures curious gourmands with modern American cuisine at the Café Robey, and summer-inspired American dishes at Cabana Club, boasting a rooftop pool and terrace. Cocktails are served at The Up Room rooftop cocktail lounge, where guests can gaze out over Chicago’s ever-changing cityscape.
The Robey Chicago offers meeting facilities including the Panorama suite and bar, which offers a 180-degree view of Chicago’s ever-changing skyline and is well suited for more sober sophistication. Guests can also host events at Robey Hall, inside the old warehouse, a multifunctional event space epitomizing Chicago’s young entrepreneurial spirit.
