Great location and room!

The hotel looked very nice from the outside and inside was great as well. One of the problems I noticed was there was standing water under the toilet and the ceiling started leaking water a couple days into the stay. The tub had standing water from the previous occupant and was not cleaned out during the entire stay (around 5 days). I just assume they would get to it but they didn't. The room cleaning person would sometimes forget to give new conditioner for the next day. They did try to make it up with free food and drinks which was nice. Overall the room was very modern looking.

An awsome stay

We stayed at the Radisson Blu on our wedding night. Everything was perfect. Staff was very accommodating in letting us take pictures and taking care of our needs. Had a mishap while leaving the next morning. One of our wedding gifts broke, a vase, while the bellman was bringing our belongings out to the curb. The manager was very professional in handling the situation and prompt about replacing our item. Thanks again to the staff! We highly recommend this hotel and will stay there again as often as we stay in downtown Chicago.

Comfortable and Clean

Very nice hotel. Visited my daughter while she was staying there on business. My room was quite large with sofa and chair. Bathroom was more than expected complete with separate tub and shower. Very nice amenities.

Aqua made a splash!

We absolutely loved staying at the Radisson Blu Aqua. It was the perfect location for getting to all the tourist hotspots we wanted to go. That staff could not have been nicer and more helpful. You get what you pay for with this place. Well worth it!

Amazing hotel!

We stayed at the Raddisson Blu Aqua Hotel for a weekend getaway for my cousin's birthday and it was amazing! Customer service is excellent, amenities were immaculate, and location was great! I would highly recommend this hotel for couples, bachelorette parties, and even families!

Horrible expirence :(

This hotel stay was a complete mess. I was so excited to stay here, as the ambiance and decor is magnificent, but I was sadly let down by the incompetence of the staff. I had prepaid my room however, they ended up charging my card on file for incidentals the full price of the room three times. They didn't acknowledge the mistake and I didn't notice it until the morning of check out It caused all kind of fees and problems with my account. In addition, their 3pm checkout time is a joke! We didn't get a room until after 5pm it was awful!
