Attended Navy Graduation

First time in Chicago, great location, easy to get to Navy base and downtown Chicago to sight see. Staff were very friendly (especially Brandon the bartender), hotel is well kept and the restaurant had great reasonably priced food. A dinner at the attached Ruth Chris steakhouse was delicious also. Rented a movie one night the cost of which the staff removed at check out. We plan on staying here again our next trip to Chicago.

I've stayed there many times. Good hotel. Good staff. Convenient, with complimentary parking, and typically short drive to north side of Chicago. Only issue is thin walls, and guest who are loud at 2AM, but Hotel helped there too. Good hotel.

Good hotel besides the spiders.

I have stayed in this hotel for 4 summers in a row. It is a nice hotel for a great price. Unfortunately, I may not use this hotel again due to the spiders. I've experienced spiders each year. After mentioning it the previous years, I thought maybe this time they would have it taken care this time. I hoped so since I had my wife & sister with me on this trip. The front desk lady said they had no spider problem when I asked. When we returned to the room that night, there were several spiders walking across the ceiling. Who knows where any others were. The manager apologized & gave us another room. I only witnessed one spider lowering itself from the ceiling as I walked in. It's a bad problem for a 4 star hotel. Otherwise it's a decent place.

Should Have Been Better

Pros: Clean room, Quiet, Hotel generally ok, Got a good night's sleep. But nothing stands out as above average or superior.
Cons: Customer experience. Instead of "can't wait to come back," I'll try elsewhere next time.
Hotel management and execution of guest experience was underwhelming, and inconsistent with a 4 star hotel. Internet was separate charge of $10 - $14 per day, often unavailable, and I was asked to re-purchase many times each day. TV was High Definition on main network channels and some sports, but analog with fuzzy picture on most channels. Had to go to another floor to find working ice machine.

Excellent hotel. I confused the "Room Service".

Location: Excellent...Please see above
Excellent Hotel...Good location...Very nice. I had a little confusion with "Room Service" request, but it was partially my fault, and hotel made correction immediately and with a very gracious demeanor...Perfect location to visit Chicago....Love Ron of Japan down the road...Love Ruth's Chris too...Big parking lot...Felt very secure.
