Great hotel. Big rooms, We had two different ones, One "normal room" but this was huge too, see photos. Kitchen corner with all you needed if you want to make some food and dishwasher too. Sleeping sofa and sitting area, but very close to the bed so no room for privacy!
Also booked a junior suite - came with king bed and a sleeping sofa in the other room. Door between them. Had a full size kitchen with sitting area. Great when traveling with teenagers. TV in both rooms.
Lots of towels and every thing was very clean, new and fresh.
Maid service was good, did all the kitchen work :-)
Breakfast was good, tend to be a bit crowded towards the end of serving time. Good idea to arrive in time! We liked the hot oatmeal with cranberries, almonds.... healthy and nice! You could also have eggs, potatoes, waffle, - all the normal stuff.
The Breakfast maid, Ismeta was a daily joy, always smiling, helping and looked after everything. She managed to made every problem disappear and helped everyone. Generally that was our impression of all the staff, very attentive, smiling and willing to help.
Gym was nice, good size.
Pool also, with a great view!
Easy walking to the magnificent mile, to downtown - sort of in between what you want to see. Several restaurants around the corners.
Don't miss Rock Bottom, a brewery with good food and lots of local beers.
Cabs are easy and cheap and will save your feet from some long distance walking! About $ 22 to the science and industry museum, which is far away but a great museum!
Zoo is free and good. Our favorite was the Millennium Park, lots of fun there and totally free!
If we goo back we will stay here again!
