The Hard Rock Hotel in Chicago loves the word "party." While the hotel calls the historic Carbide and Carbon skyscraper home, it pushes the envelope of hip and edgy, offering an all-around fun place to stay. The furniture is sleek and modern in soothing tones of grey and black, with splashes of color for posterity. Some hotels have attractive amenities like rooftop pools, but the Hard Rock is a bit spunkier than other hotels. The Hard Rock's Sound of Your Stay program is a music-themed package that lets you play on a Fender guitar, choose a soundtrack for your stay, and mix your own music. The hotel even extends the opportunity for music lessons, with a seasoned Chicago music pro, here in the Birthplace of the Blues.

Highlights

Before you head out on the town to experience Chicago's legendary nightlife, start your evening at one of the hotel's on-site restaurants. Mr. Brown's Lounge serves authentic Jamaican Cuisine while Chuck's Restaurant is elegantly retro and serves up light eats for guests who are on the move. Fat burgers, towering sandwiches and delectable sweets, make this a hot spot for guests and locals alike; so make sure to book a reservation to secure a table.

Many things weren't working in my upgraded room. Internet only worked in lobby. An outlet and a light weren't working in the bathroom, the TV in the bedroom would 't turn on although I had no problem with the TV in the sitting area. However, the view from the 27th floor was awesome.

Great Location

We have never stayed at a HardRock Hotel before, but my expectations were high. They have an intimidating mini bar that automatically charges your account if you move something out of place, we didnt get charges but the fear of hitting something and beeing charged was there. The carpets or something in the building feel very old, dont know if dirty but I sented a smell thar didint register cleanliness. The Chuck is great and has nice offers everyday.

Great stay!

Location, location, location in the heart of downtown Michigan and Wacker walked to Hancock United Center and all up and down Michigan. Great service...gorgeous art deco room and excellent staff at front desk and the cleaning staff. Loved our semi private floor and the spa products rocked... Would definitely stay on next trip and enjoyed the ambiance so much! Hard Rock is awesome!

Hard Rock Rocks!

Amazing service, rooms, and city! Located within the city, within walking distance to the Naval Pier and beautiful Lake Michigan.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

House of Blues is fantastic. We were there for the City if Hope Fund raiser, which included a battle of the bands on their huge second level. The Hard Rock Café is also a short walk away. They had live music while we wee there, on a Friday, featuring three bands that were great! By short cab ride: Mother's: a split level bar. Upper level featured karaoke, and the lower lever showcased a Weezer tribute band. They were incredible. Check out "Swizzle Steve's" Facebook page. He books venues for bands, including the ones we saw at the Hard Rock Café and the Weezer tribute band at Mother's. Steve definitely has an eye for talent. We were luck to have met him : ))

Awesome View and Location

This hotel was great! My boyfriend and I came to get away for the weekend. The location was amazing and we even got a free upgrade because we had stayed there once before. It couldn't have been any better. The bed was so comfy and very clean!

Great Location!

Everything was really nice but I felt they nickled and dimed you.... Had to pay for WIFI in the room, but free in the lounge. $50/day parking when down the street it was only $42. They had a great coffee machine in the room but only decaf and tea available.
