We reserved 3 hotel rooms and held them on my debit card. At check in, we were told everyone could use their own card to pay, but then were told our card was already charged for the rooms, so our friends should just pay us the cash because that wouldn't take as long as it would take the hold to fall off. We were then charged another authorization for the third room before the guests had even checked in yet to give them a different card for payment. When we asked about that charge, they said they put an automatic hold on the card at 3pm, which is when check in time starts. Our paperwork said check in was between 3pm and 12am, so not sure why they would charge my card prior to someone checking in, but at this point, with this hotel, why would I be surprised? We checked out today and yet another authorization has hit our checking account, now tying up $3000 worth of money that we are told will just fall off in 6 to 7 business days. I am being told that there is nothing anyone can do to correct this issue and I am now waiting for a manager to call me back at 10am (which I doubt will amount to much seeing as we have already spoken to one manager who offered to buy us a drink at the bar for the inconvenience.) Be very careful when booking a stay here. They may decide to hold all the money in your checking account just because it seems like the fun thing to do.

Loved the king bed suite we stayed in. The room was quiet, well decorated and clean. We loved the paintings which pointed out some of the things we had to check out on Navy Pier. We would were disappointed the roof top bar was closed. We would have spent time there.
