Great Downtown Chicago Experience

Pros: The fast friendly service of all departments - the location - the atmosphere.
Location: All kinds of nightlife, shopping, tourist attractions, restaurants - all within easy walking distance.
We took a three day weekend in downtown Chicago to enjoy what the city had to offer - this Hotel did not disappoint! Check in was smooth and easy, the staff was friendly and helpful and the room we got was great! The views were amazing! The hotel bar was a great place to hang out too - great service and a good selection of bar food too. Highly recommend this hotel for price, service and location!

Very expensive not worth it!

Rooms are small. Carpet was dirty. Bathroom light bulb was out. Staff was unresponsive to fix the bathroom light while we went out for dinner. Heard the elevator noise all night. Nicest people were the bellmen and valet..... then I found out why in the morning. $61 for parking! Manager blamed the city and county for the high rates. A tap beer at the bar $8! I will never return.

Nice room but not very spacious for 2. A bit difficult getting ready for our excursion to explore the area. The staff couldn't be nicer. Parking was a nightmare. We barely made it on time for our show.

It had no refrigerator and was at a bare minimum. Paying $200.00 a night should have entitled my party and myself to a few more amenities.

Great hotel, great location

Perfectly located. Easy entrances. Great staff. Super clean and comfortable. Only downfall in my eyes was no free wifi. That is the only grumble I had!

Almost didn't honor our bed-specific booking!

Pros: Convenience to parking, downtown and central to the other things we were going to do in town.
Cons: We specifically called Travelocity to do the booking because the website said EITHER 2-bed or king room. Honor the booking! or fix the process.
Location: Perfect location and central to all of the local activities we were planning.
Glad they finally did honor our specific king bed booking rather than making us take a 2-bed room on our anniversary weekend getaway, it still took 20 minutes for us to wait while our agent disappeared to see what could be changed on our behalf. Shouldn't have been an issue, but glad for the outcome.

Great location hotel!

Pros: Convenience and the price! Also the view was very nice!
Cons: The heat in the room was hard to regulate , although they are refurbishing the hotel! The breakfast options at the hotel were not worth price!!
Location: Plenty of restaurants of different price ranges. Many shops on Michigan Ave. & behind hotel.
This hotel is at a great location for shopping and food venues. There are many places within walking distance, even if you're handicapped. We would definitely stay here again!!
