This hotel was designed by Daniel Burnham, which was used to be an office building but now converted to a boutique hotel operated by Kimpton.
The location is unbeatable. It is less than one block from the blue line from O"Hare; the stop is "Washington". And maybe 2 blocks from the orange line coming from Mid-way. There were a lot of shopping with 1-2 blocks such as Macy, Nordstorm Rack, Target, H&M, TJ Max, etc. IT is also 2-3 blocks from the Millenium Park.
The room was comfortable and decent size. I had a room on the 5 Floor overseeing State Street. Rooms on higher floor could have a view of the Park and Lake.
There is a happy hour from 5-6 pm everyday; the hotel would serve complimentary red and white wines. They also serve complimentary coffee and tea in the morning.
If you are a member of their loyalty program, the wifi is complimentary too. It is worth joining.
My only complaint is the exercise room. It was small and required a bit of tender loving care.
