I recently took my daughters to Chicago for a girls weekend. I had done alot or research online prior to making reservations at this hotel. When we first arrived, we were a little early and tried to check in and were told our room wouldn't be ready until 3:00 pm. No problem, we were hungry so we went and got something to eat and came back at 3:00. the lobby was a disaster! People standing around waiting for a room (over 40 people!) the front desk was completely unorganized and kept telling us that our rooms weren't ready. We ended up standing there waiting for almost an hour to check into our room! We finally get to our room - which was very nice I might add, a small sitting area with a fold out loveseat/bed, flat screen tv and desk and a second room with a king sized bed, another flat screen and dressers. Well we started hearing loud banging noises next to our room repeatedly! Our room was next to a storage room so I was afraid to know what was going on in there! I called the front desk and they sent someone to check it out. Turns out the swimming pool was directly over our room and what we were hearing was people jumping inn and out of the pool! The maintenance man acted surprised to learn that this was occuring! Give me a break! I cant be the first person to stay in this room and complain about the very loud banging noise! No one offered to change our room, give us a discount or anything else! We had to live with this for the entire 4 days we were there!! If it werent for the free parking I don't know that I would stay here again!
