Help with hotel

And yes, I have looked at the Top Questions. Looking to visit in late April, 25th anniversary trip.

Want to stay in the downtown loop area. Looking at say the top 15 or so hotels as they are ranked on Trip Advisor, is there any one that stands out? Trump?

The Trump or the Langham are the 5-star hotels closest to the Loop. However, high-quality hotels like the Waldorf, Four Seasons and Peninsula are less than a mile north of the river.

I have stayed in all the luxury hotels in Chicago and here are my impressions in order of favorites

Tied for 1st - Trump and Waldorf

Trump is big and glitzy with giant rooms tall ceilings and great views. 16 is a great restaurant and I am friends with the bartender at Rebar so it usually gets the nod over the Waldorf. Service is outstanding

Waldorf - Beautiful quiet hotels with large rooms with a fireplace and most with balconies. Very comfortable and more traditional than the Trump. You receive and can use Hilton points which is a big plus. Great bar. No tipping too

Peninsula - Beautiful hotel with large rooms tends to be a little more expensive and seems a little old and snobby to me. Lobby restaurant is excellent

Ritz Carlton (owned by 4 seasons) - No RC/Marriott points is bad but the hotel is great with some great views from the suites on the upper floors. Bad bar and food options in hotel

Park Hyatt - Great location feels crowded and some of the rooms especially those with a connecting door and on the lower level are noisy as there is a fire station very close. NoMi is an excellent restaurant and it has a good outdoor bar although it gets very crowded.

Four Seasons - Nice hotel nothing really stands out like the above but it is a four seasons so it is very nice. No rewards program.

The Langham - TBD
