You know how you book fancy hotels and then you realise that it's just a small bed in a small room? With no breakfast, expensive mini-bar and uppity staff?...well we've done that before in Chicago. Never again!
Everything was great about this hotel and we raved about it to everyone when we got home. It's in a great location, has free parking, vending machines on each floor, free coffee and biscuits in lobby and also our rate had full breakfast included but this might be for foreign tourists don't know, and best of all the staff are amazingly helpful and polite.
The room was very big with plenty of space for a travel cot. TV was boring but hey you're in Chicago...go do somethin'! The trick with the shower is to run it for like 5-10 mins (sorry climate!) before you use it, then it's actually really hot. Our room faced the street and we slept fine.
There was a pool which was 2 elevator rides away and cold. I noticed there was a rooftop solarium and gym too.
Thank you for such a pleasant stay-I can't recommend this hotel enough it was great.
