Ritz is top notch for Chicago - was there for work last week.

Food is just okay, but overall experience is fantastic and right off of Michigan Ave. rooms were recently renovated and are fairly spacious. View is meh.

Was only there for a few days but somehow all of the servers knew my name, which was a nice touch

like

Rooms were also super quiet even at the lower levels - was on floor ~20 and could hear zero road noise - and beds / carpet are super comfortable and homey

like

Ritz all the way. Stayed last year for NYE and it was great. Gwen really is just meh.

like

Ritz for sure. Spa is amazing, almost all rooms have a view of the lake and the bar and restaurant are super pleasant. Food is meh, but ambiance and people watching is great!

like

The Gwen is meh.

Some of my peers stayed there for training. I went in to one of the rooms. It’s not super spacious or above par, pretty normal. Haven’t been to the Ritz so I wouldn’t know how they compare.

Ritz no doubt

I just want to say, there is undoubtedly a lot of passion on the left and right for their respective candidate. I respect the Democrats for sticking up for Biden and Republicans for Trump anytime something is said about either of them. It frankly doesn’t seem healthy anymore since we are going into an endless loop with the same hateful/hurtful comments being cycled. Let’s try to be a bit more tolerant, positive, and objective in what we share going forward. America is best united!
