The hotel has two towers: one modern, the other historic. We stayed in the historic tower (bigger rooms and has more character).
The hotel was walking distance to almost everything we had on our itinerary: from the Chicago Art Institute and Architecture Foundation River Cruise to Millennium Park and all the restaurants we visited while in town.
The olympic-sized pool looks like a Greco-Roman baths and is oozing with character! Oh and make sure you check out the themed floors – from the Renaissance Room to King Arthur’s Court! If they're not hosting an event, ask them if you can use the lounge in the historic tower (on the 32nd floor). It has incredible views of the city.
Parking is pricey ($63.50/night) so you may want to look into other options. The Millennium Park Garage is a 10 min walk, safe and $30/night. Internet is also expensive ($18/day). We used the free WiFi at Starbucks (attached to the hotel).
