Verified Reviews of Royal Sonesta Chicago Riverfront

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Customer service seemed poor."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
My room was nice but the customer service could use some help. I probably won't recommend this hotel to my friends or family. A few smiles and friendly greetings wouldn't hurt to give that to your hotel guests. Everyone looked pissed off at the front desk when I checked out.

28-Dec-2019 Verified Review, stayed from Fri Dec 27 to Sat Dec 28 2019 at a $127.84 average nightly rate.
"Great Chicago experience with Wyndham."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We had a great start from the beginning with Liz at the front desk. She was friendly and knowledgeable. Our room was nice and with a great view of the city. We had dinner at the Wyndham and the food and the service were awesome. The end of the stay was made great with the service of the valet who helped us with the directions to the expressway out of town. Overall a great Chicago experience.
