Place has mixed reviews. Our stay was good. Friendly front desk, good size room (suite), could be cleaner, but ok. In our opinion it was a good value - very close to Water Tower Place. We like to walk around that area so it was just what we wanted. Not so much for a view. Hotel does have large amount of rooms pointing at courtyard but we really didnt plan on staying in the room for a superb view. Elevators are very small and it takes a while to get one that you can fit in with others - i think 4 is max capacity. Front desk stays in touch with you during your stay just to see if you need anything - i think its great. Over all we were satisfied with our stay at this hotel.
