If there was a worldwide award for best blackout curtains, this hotel would take top prize. It's unusual to start a review of a hotel and hotel room with the curtains, but these things were exemplary, you woke up and had no idea whether it was day or night.
The location is terrific. You're within a 15 minute walk of everything Downtown Chicago has to offer. You're paying a reasonable nightly rate for a stay. The bed is comfortable. The amenities are Hampton Inn standard, as is the breakfast.
If you leave the DnD hangtag on the door, housekeeping will leave you a basket of amenities outside the door, which is an outstanding touch.
Valet service is prompt and polite, and a better value than the neighboring Palmer House.
It isn't perfect (though I'm rounding up to Excellent). The elevator service is slow. The chairs in the rooms lack arms (odd for the computer desk). The paint job on the doors in the hallways are lacking, there's some noise bleed through from room to room and hot water in the shower is in short supply during peak times. Rooms do not have refrigerators, my one real disappointment.
But these are minor quibbles on an overall great value in downtown Chicago. Book it.
