Disclosure: I am a Chicago native. My friend from college was visiting, and I wanted to find him a hotel with (a) excellent service, (b) outstanding location, and (c) something historical. Because I am a Chicago native, however, my review (perhaps paradoxically) will not be as in-depth.
I love the feel of this hotel; it is the most unique hotel I stayed in regarding two respects for ME. One, it feels very historical, which I love. Two, the service is something I have not experienced in other hotels. However the system works, the staff seems to always be on top of things. We requested a cot so I could stay with my friend, and without a problem the staff provided it. I also liked the free newspapers in the morning (including Sunday's NY Times). As to the room, it was just perfect. High quality, pleasant, comfortable, and cozy.
We did not use the hotel's restaurant, however, and we had breakfast and lunch and dinner in the surrounding area. You have many and varied options. I have heard great things about the restaurant, but we did not go because of convenience.
If you are visiting the city, you will love the location. You are in the center of all the action. I have myriad recommendations of what to do, but I will defer to the excellent staff and your own planning. I honestly do not want to bias your trip too much. Chicago has a tremendous amount to offer, and I know you will enjoy your time!
