Upscale hotel recommendations

Looking for an upscale downtown hotel within walking distance to major shopping, restaurants, etc. Tenative trip planned for mid-late May 2012. Might wait until late Auguest or early Sept. 2012. Price range $200 - $350 per night. Prefer very large room or suite, maybe a city view, club floor, breakfast??. A pool, parking, fitness center, not needed on this trip. Thanks. John

The Trump has very large rooms, great views and is close to everything.

The Ritz Carlton, The Four Seasons, The Penninsula, The Elysian, The Park Hyatt, The Trump International are top tier hotels. Hotel views are in-city views not views over the skyline. The hotels are typically built over commercial floors and condos take up the upper (view) floors. The best hotel views are probably from the Ritz Carlton, rooms facing south and west; The Trump International, all directions; the Park Hyatt, rooms facing east and south.

We just returned from a two night stay at the Ritz Carlton. I can't say enough about the service, hotel itself and location.

We were treated like royalty. Our room looked out over Lake Michigan and the Navy Pier and we were within walking distance of so many things. We walked to the Navy Pier, the downtown shopping district and a huge plus was the wonderful mall located in the same building.

We would definitely recommend the Ritz!
