We stayed at this hotel over the long weekend in November 2013.
While we did not have a riverfront room we still had a great, typical view of downtown Chicago.
The location is superb in terms of access to transportation links and for walking in the downtown core.
The front desk service was excellent, the staff are very friendly and helpful. They did warn us about the ongoing construction but as we were on the 32nd floor, we didn't hear it at all. We found the room to be well-kept, a good size and clean.
There were a few minor improvements we would suggest:
Add a mirror to the room itself, instead of only in the bathroom.
Add shelving and a light over the coffee area, and supply wineglasses and ceramic coffee mugs instead of the paper cups. This would be more in keeping with the desire to be 'green'.
An option for a dim light on in the bathroom only, instead of the full bright light would be nice.
Also, the tub./shower combination should be updated with safety/grab bars.
We do want to give a particular shout out in thanks to the cook/chef at Hoyt's who insisted on reheating our pizza (purchased elsewhere!) in the oven, rather than in the microwave, and presenting it nicely on a plate. Very much appreciated!
