I chose this hotel based on the recommendation from several travel guides. Considering its unique history, convenient location and good value, this hotel just gave me a wonderful experience in the Windy City! I believe I made the right choice!
The location is unbeatable! The hotel opens its main door directly facing Michigan Avenue. All the shopping and fine dining are great. There is a bus stop right in front with services to the museum campus and the Loop. Grand Red CTA station is 2 blocks away. Two bus routes to Navy Pier Park stop at Grand/Rush. Going everywhere is very easy!
I was given a big room on 21/F in the historic building facing Michigan Avenue. The view was so nice! There were 6 big windows on 3 sides of the room! It cost me US$120/night including taxes. I consider this very good value for the location and size. Noise was a bit of a problem despite the high floor. Overall, the room and the hotel interior might look a bit tired and old but actually not too bad for a historic building. Of course, not to compare with other new modern hotels like the Trump Tower. Totally acceptable for me.
