Wonderful place to stay. I was upgraded to a suite upon checking in (without asking) and it was beautiful and well-appointed as all the other reviews suggest. Extremely quiet in the room, the terrace was noisier as it overlooked the building's air conditioning systems but still bearable. Everything was very clean and in great shape. Staff was attentive and said hello and welcome back whenever we came/went. No tipping policy is a plus. Only one minor complaint, really. The hotel's facebook page announced this week that there was now free local BMW car service, but this wasn't mentioned while we were there despite needing taxis on several occasions. I felt a bit uncomfortable asking about it since it wasn't 'offered', so ah well. Overall, a nice experience and I'd be happy to come back next time I'm in Chicago!
