We arrived late at night due to a substantial delay in our train from San Francisco, but was still greeted by a friendly receptionist who completed check-in procedures quickly and effectively. We had paid extra for a riverside view and was given a room on the 12th floor. We really didn't know what to expect from the advertised seating areas in the panoramic windows, but imagine our reaction when we opened the curtains at just before midnight to see the lights of Trump Tower and other skyscraper buildings lighting up Chicago and the river down below with a variety of small boats still going up and down - priceless!!
We choose Kimpton now due to its very high levels of customer service and perks offered to its "In Touch" members and we were certainly not disappointed with any aspects of this hotel from its rooms, its staff or its location.
If you do chose this hotel, pay that little bit extra for a river view room - we sat in the window last Monday night when a severe storm hit Chicago, amazed when the top of Trump Tower and other skyscrapers disappeared into low cloud and transfixed by the lightning storm displayed overhead.
