Newly opened Hotel 71 is a real jewel in downtown Chicago. Located just west of Michigan Avenue facing the Chicago River,it's opposite the much more expensive Trump Hotel. Shopping is a short walk away on the Magnificent Mile or walking the other way, to Macy's. The rooms are more like suites than the typical Chicago hotel rooms. Hotel 71 is much like a large, full service boutique hotel. The staff are friendly and hospitable. Parking is by valet but your car will be under the building instead of halfway across town. Breakfast is served in the cozy dining room, either buffet or ala carte. Imagine, fresh squeezed orange juice. The fitness center is way up where you can enjoy a fabulous view of Chicago. Upper floors facing south have a nice view of the Loop but I suggest paying a few bucks more for the river view. We could see seven bridges spanning the Chicago River. A few minor inconveniences: ice machines are only on a few floors and there are no soda machines. I'm proud to attach my name to this review. Burt Katz
