My son and I have stayed here three consecutive years for the Chicago Blackhawks convention. The hhonors check in line was short for us, but the regular line was very long. Desk staff was cheerful and the valet and bell staff were on their game. Parking is more money than I've paid to stay in hotels before, but this is Michigan ave, so I was ready.
We stayed in one of the remodeled rooms on the ninth floor. Two baths were nice, but vanities were tiny. Ac worked better in these rooms than we've seen in the past in the older rooms. Internet access was included in our upgraded room fee which was nice as the service was average at best. The lobby restaurant was very good and my six year old was never charged for his buffet meal, which goes a long way in my book. Irish bar and grill was good too, but with limited seating.
The parking garage does not exit onto Michigan ave, but rather a less crowded side street which made accessing 290 very easy when we left. Great staff outshines the few negatives. The primary concern I had was that cell phone access was some of the worst I have seen. We will be back for next years conference.
The pool was also large and very comfortable. There is a rooftop deck also which gives a nice view of the sky scrapers and Harold's chicken shack.
