We recently booked this hotel room for our dear friend's bachelorette party. We searched for many days for any room in the loop, as hotels all over the city said they were booked. It came down to a handful of hotels, but we lucked out and the comfort suites had a single room left - The executive suite. We were told that there would be a king bed and a pull out bed and that if we were quick, we could snag a roll away or two for no additional charge. We looked at some photos and a very helpful youtube video showing what the inside looks like, noting the full-sized kitchen would be excellent for continued drinking throughout the night. Although pricier ($500/night after taxes) than the simple double rooms that you see on priceline, we understood that we were getting quite a bit more than a simple double room already and sealed the deal.
When we got to the hotel room, we couldn't have been happier with the decision. To begin, the hotel bumped us up free of charge to the presidential suite. This suite is on the 26th floor. It can best be summarized by calling it a two-bedroom apartment. In fact, some of the attendees noted that the hotel room was probably bigger than their apartments. Two bedrooms with king beds in each, two full bathrooms, a washer/dryer, full-sized kitchen, dining area with an actual dining table, living area, loft complete with spiral staircase to access the loft, and a balcony with a great view of the river and the Chicago Tribune building. The location was great. We were able to walk to everything that we needed in the city. The rooms were clean. Even our resident clean freak (the bride!) loved it. The staff was great, and completely put up with a gaggle of drunk ladies with great humor. Without a doubt, $500 was a steal for this room.
tl;dr - Pricier than the base room cost at other hotels, but significantly less expensive than anything else comparable. Great location. Clean rooms. Friendly staff. Full-sized kitchen. Free wifi. Washer/dryer in-room. Great view. Would repeat.
