Firstly I want to say in my experience, hilton hotels are far superior to starwood properties. I would always recommend hiltons over starwood.
That said, this hotel did not disappoint. It is so grand when you walk in - beautiful and opulent! We are hilton honors diamond elite members, and the service was superb. Our room was very nice, with a great corner view of the Navy Pier. However, I should note that the room was very small.
The executive lounge had very good breakfast, and nice views. The service in the lounge however was not up to par. There was one woman there and she was pretty rude.
Overall the hotel was beautiful, in a great location for us on business and had overall great service. If you are staying as a tourist however, note you may need to take cabs often. This hotel is not really within walking distance to a lot of places. Other than that, I would highly recommend!
