My husband and I stayed here in December 2011 for 7 nights whilst on business. The first room we were allocated was a double room with a very comfortable bed, nice bathroom, very clean & plenty of room. This room had a glass table which decided to shatter of it's own accord early one morning. The hotel staff said that this was the first time any such thing had happened, so it was difficult to explain. However neither my husband or I were injured, and the reception sent up a member of staff immediately to clear up. They were very kind and concerned and moved us to a suite, which was really nice (and had a wooden coffee table), and also sent up some lovely flowers which was a really nice touch. The suite had a sitting room with sofa, dining table, was very modern and stylish and again spotlessly clean - I must admit I was rather sad to leave.
This hotel offers free WIFI which was highspeed and reliable.
The lobby of the hotel has a bar which was nice for an evening drink after getting back from dinner.
The door staff were really friendly, and made us feel very welcome and 'loved', as did all the staff. All in all we found this a perfect hotel for a trip to Chicago and will be staying here agian when we visit next.
This hotel is situated at the top end of 'The Magnificent Mile', and is a great base for sightseeing, and shopping.
The only complaint I have is that they need to install a bedside reading light, as the over the bed one is a bit bright.
