I stayed here in late May 2014 with my wife. It was a spacious, comfortable room to which we were upgraded when we checked in. I asked for a high floor (34th fl.) river view and I was not disappointed. The bathroom was spacious and very nice. The coffee machine was OK but they didn't supply coffee. May have been an over sight on part of maid service.
Beds were comfortable with lots of pillows. TV was very nice, desk, sofa, window view of river. I thought it was very nice hotel with comforts expected for this hotel; it was simply comfortable so we enjoyed our stay.
It is well situated near the Loop, and River North or Millenium Park. This was my first re-introduction to Chicago in almost 40 years and the location made it very convenient. The concierge was helpful and offered to help us make reservations but he wasn't aware that the restaurant we were headed to didn't accept reservations.
We stayed there just before the summer crush begins and the rates in downtown Chicago start soaring so we got a good deal here.
The windows don't open but that may be because we were so high up and Chicago is indeed a windy city.
