I was on 36 hour layover in Chicago to do business but I also had several remote meetings scheduled. I was very grateful that the hotel was able to accommodate an early check-in without any problems. I was disgusted at my treatment from hotel desk. When I asked the desk staff if they had a office space for people to do work and meetings, I was told that I would need to reserve a room. I repeated my question, assuming they misunderstood, they doubled down. I figured out for myself where the business center was and set up my zoom situation. A staff person then came over to ask me whether or not I was a guest in the hotel. He apologized when I told him he was and backed off. But then 3 hours later (3 zoom meetings later) another staff person comes and asks the same question- at least they led with trying to assess the situation rather than assuming I was a vagrant. Do you do this to white male guests who spend several hours in your office center? I doubt it. But if you do - STOP IT. This place is expensive. I expected MUCH better service all around. Restaurant wait staff soooo slow. I never register reviews like this, but this place seriously pissed me off. I should have stayed down the street at the cheapo Hyatt, they are polite there. Next time.

We love the Sophy. Clearly the best hotel in Hyde Park and among the best in Chicago. Beautiful rooms. Good gym. Excellent restaurant. The staff is fantastic. We always try to stay here but it books up fast for special weekends.
