Great hotel

Pros: Cleanliness, pool, sauna, the staff. I thought they should not have had a sauna charge, but it was minimal.
Cons: The food. It was mediocre at best and very, very expensive. $9.00 for a cup of coffee. The buffet prices were outrageous.
Location: There is absolutely nothing nearby, but taxi's were called and came very quickly and they are inexpensive.
I must tell you that his hotel had a very nice staff - especially Grant Park who helped us so much when we were leaving, and the lovely girl in the lounge. It is very clean and the pool and sauna were delightful
