Very historical property wish it had a pool and a restaurant/bar that was open Monday -Friday but there is a Hilton across the street so it worked out good. We had a terrific stay at this hotel the shower water pressure was a little low but other than that was terrific!!!! Staff was great and check in was very quick .they do put a incidental charge on a card for your stay (100 a day) so just be prepared

GREAT LOCATION across from Grant Park. Bus stops across the street. Very close to the Art Institute, Field Museum, and the Shedd Aquarium Away from the crowds on Miracle Mail. Worst thing in this hotel is no free Wi-Fi unless you join the Marriott club, which means more junk mail and e-mail.

The hotel was beautiful and vintage. The rooms were nice and clean but needed more adequate lighting.

Check in was supposed to be at 4, we had arrived to the hotel around 3:15 to let them know we had arrived and check our bags, our room was not ready we were told (which was fine we were a little early). We kept checking back with the front desk starting around 4:15 and our room still was not ready. The service desk individual was quite rude in regards to the room and just tried to make it sound normal that people pay extra for late checkout and this just happens. We had plans and were supposed to be getting ready for. Finally around 5:30PM our room was ready 😳 just annoying when you pay $200 for a room and you are traveling from out of town. Skk ok if you are in a rush to get to a room after a flight or something this probably is not the right hotel for you! That being said the rooms were nice and hotel was pretty, just the staff and experience was terrible.

I am so sorry to read this as we strive to check our guests in as soon as we can. It is true that at times, we do not have a specific room type based on late check-outs...however, I am sorry you felt that the agent was not hospitable. I will share your comments with the team to ensure they understand how you were affected. I am glad you did enjoy the rest of your stay and the room you were in. I look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Decor is fabulous. Would have liked bottled water in the room.
