We stayed here overnight with our family of 6. We love the layout of the room because the bedroom closes off from the sitting area, allowing us to put a smaller child to bed before the rest of us. The hotel provided a roll-away crib with linens. The room was quiet; we did not hear any other guests. The kids loved the glass elevator with views of the city. We had a nice view of the Chicago Sun-Times, Trump hotel and surrounding buidlings from our room. We did not see the lake from the hotel, however, the location is awesome. Michigan Ave, Lake Shore Dr., Navy Pier, Chicago River, Water Tower Place, are all walkable from the hotel even for our little ones.
The room was not quite as clean as we would have liked as we found someone's Gatorade bottle on the floor by the bed, and the carpet made our socks dirty (ew). Also there was no ventilation in the bathroom so it had a stale smell. One of our three sinks was all but clogged. Otherwise everything was in order.
The breakfast was fantastic!! Tons of choices, well stocked, and lots of staff working to clear plates, refresh your coffee and turn over tables. Everyone ate well. Bacon, eggs, pancakes, french toast, oatmeal, omelettes cooked-to-order, bagels, pastries, fresh fruit, yogurt. Mom and Dad enjoyed the Evening reception too. Open bar with beer, wine, and cocktails!
We used the self-parking which was very easy (enter on Illinois St.) and convenient. We preferred this to the valet parking because we could get to our car easily (there is always someone who left something essential in the car!). Cost was $39 for 12-24 hours.
Wi-fi is an extra charge here, if that matters to you. Overall we were very satisfied and would stay here again. Lots of bang for the buck here!
