I have high standards and wasn't sure what to expect when we chose to stay at a "boutique" hotel. However, they have good reviews and we got the room at a nice discount/promotion they had at the time. I should *not* have worried! Room (standard 2 queen bed) was as expected- clean, nice decor, average size for being in a major city; we had enough space for 2 adults and a 5 year old. We had a decent city view. Pool was warm and clean with an excellent view of the city since it is located on 17th floor. Location is perfect- the red line is literally around the corner and the hotel is within walking distance to restaurants and shops. The real highlight was the staff; service was beyond excellent! Our son celebrated his birthday over our trip (that and Spring Break were the reasons we went to Chicago) and we mentioned it to the front desk. Later that night, they brought him 2 bottles of Goose Island root beer, some snacks, and coloring activities. We could have had a goldfish in our room, too, but we declined since we were out all day on most of the days we were there. We also received a complimentary bottle of red wine "just because." Complimentary coffee, water, and juices are served all day in the lobby with wine hour nightly. Overall, I will stay here again next time I am visiting Chicago.
