“Great Location” 5 of 5 stars

“Very close to the local attractions and food. Very clean rooms and great service. The city is very walkable from this location. The bar upstairs provides a great view of the city and serves great drinks and bar bites.”

“Great Hotel – Would love to return” 5 of 5 stars

“I really had a wonderful stay at the Moonrise. Great staff, and they allowed me to check in to my room at 9:45 AM upon my arrival from the airport, which was unexpected and made my day so much easier. The room was comfortable and quiet. I didn’t have time to go to the rooftop bar, but would love to do that next time. The proximity to The Loop gives you access to so many great restaurants and bars. An awesome hotel, and I hope to have to have the chance to return again soon.”

“Head to the Roof!” 5 of 5 stars

“Fabulously themed hotel – incredible service – great rooms – but the real gem is the roof top deck and bar!! the lighted steps and furniture in the lobby make for incredible photo ops and the cafe off of the lobby has the best breakfast you will ever eat!”

“Outstanding Service” 5 of 5 stars

The hotel is great, funky, clean, etc. The service was even better! Lost my new (expensive) sunglasses at the hotel, and these were found and couriered to me at my next destination. They arrived safe and sound. Brilliant!

“Love this hotel!” 5 of 5 stars

I’ve stayed at the Moonrise Hotel before and reviewed it previously as well. This trip, I stayed with my husband and adult son. We had a one bedroom suite on the pet friendly floor with an additional adjoining room. It was an excellent setup for our group. The suite was very pretty; in addition to the bedroom, there was a large living area and a dining area. The adjoining room opened into the living lounge area – a great setup.

The rest of the hotel is as before: great service, friendly staff, fun bar on rooftop and excellent location as well as being really pet-friendly!

Great hotel!

“Awesome rooftop bar! Very cool hotel decor, great friendly and helpful staff. I will stay here again.”

“Wonderful stay” 5 of 5 stars

“I loved the Moonrise Hotel. The staff was extremely friendly. This is a very unique hotel with friendly staff, clean rooms, and great food. The roof top bar is fun. Patrons to the bar cannot access the sleeping floor rooms because of the card key access to those floors. Therefore, the sleeping room floors are quiet. The hotel is located in the Loop with great shops and restaurants.”
