We stayed here for 2 nights at the start of our Route 66 tour. We found the welcome was warm and room large and comfortable, if not a little dated. There is an incredible pool on site. Make sure to buy VIP aquarium tickets from the hotel as this enables you to skip the lines and are cheaper than at the aquarium. Hotel is within walking distance of the bean and other sites and restaurants and offers a free shuttle bus to the aquarium.
We ate breakfast at Yolk which was a 2 min walk and was the best breakfast we have had EVER!
