The Hard Rock Hotel was a decent stay. It’s by no means the Ritz-Carlton but it was perfect for a 4 day stay in Chicago. The hotel is decorated in rock paraphernalia and it’s very trendy.
It’s a full service hotel with a bell hop, doorman, a restaurant, a bar, multiple floors, and low and behold rooms. It’s very Chicago with some of it’s attributes like the vintage elevators even though it’s decorated with a bunch of rock paraphernalia minus the cocaine and massive amounts of groupies.
I arrived on my first night and the reception greeted me with a smile and very friendly. I booked a one bed room with the intention of getting a roll out bed cause it was cheaper. Now, why would I need a roll out bed? Well, it’s for any potentials who I meet off of Tinder and they want to spend the night. I know. I’m such a considerate person.

However, once I got to my room, I called to have the roll out bed delivered to my room. They offered to upgrade my room to a two queen bed for no charge. I tried to tip the reception for their kind deed but they didn’t accept it. Major bonus points like a boyfriend sending his girlfriend flowers for no reason. For your information, there’s always a reason, ladies.
The room was pretty spacious and I had a view of the Riverwalk. They also provided me with free wifi when you usually have to pay for it. The maid always had a smile on her face and check on me daily. There was a full size desk and I didn’t encountered any issues with the restroom like people throwing up cause they party too hard and had massive amounts of blow. I started to question whether the Hard Rock Hotel was really about “Hard Rock”.
The best part of the Hard Rock was the location. It was in the middle of everything in Chicago. It was two blocks from Millennium Park, two blocks from Mag Mile, a block from Riverwalk, 3 blocks from the famous Chicago Theater, 3 blocks from the Art Institute, a 15 minutes ride to the Southside, 15 minutes to Wrigley Park, 10 minutes from 360 Chicago, and there’s loads of places to grab food/drinks. You get the point like someone cussing you out.
Overall, I definitely enjoyed my stay at the Hard Rock and would definitely recommend it. It’s in the middle of everything, the service was awesome, and it was fairly price for its location. It was pretty awesome like the city of Chicago minus Kanye West, the Trump Hotel on Riverwalk and the Chicago Cubs.
