We stayed three nights at the Affinia and had a wonderful time. We walked to Loyola University Museum of Art (Heaven + Hell exhibition runs 2/10 through 6/30/12), Water Tower Place for shopping and to Navy Pier (Smith Museum of Stained Glass has over 150 pieces and it's free). The hotel is understated contemporary decor; if you like overstuffed or fussy, the Affinia is not for you. Aside from the two women working the front desk when we checked out everyone was very friendly and helpful. The web site said hotel guests would get two-for-one admission (which we did), reserved seating and a complimentary cocktail (which we did not) at the Underground Bar (which has moved to Clark St). Gino's East is right next door and the front desk staff will give you a pass that lets you go to the front of the line and get free bread sticks or a salad. With the hospital across the street it can get loud from the ambulances blowing their horns at cars that won't move; at night, when there's less traffic, it's not a problem. Also, the window has a quilted roll-down shade that helps muffle the noise. We had brunch at C-House from a very interesting menu that we really enjoyed. Our room was very clean and the toiletries were by Philosophy. We would definitely stay here again.
