We liked the the hotel very much, the room was great with a living room and bedroom. The location near Water Tower Place is very convenient - near great shopping and restaurants. The roof top bar, Drumbar, was great! We'll be back!

This hotel is next door to the John Hancock building, on the Magnificent Mile so for location it could not be better. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful'
Large rooms with all the facilities. The lifts, elevators can be a bit of a wait at peak times, especially to and from the great roof bar on the 18th floor but not a big issue.
Highly recommend this hotel.

We had a very enjoyable stay. We requested 2 rooms close together. Even though we arrived early, we were told this wasn't possible. We were on 2 separate floors, despite the clerk admitting everyone else had not already checked in. Otherwise, our stay was excellent.

Stayed here end of July because it less expensive. Room was nice and clean. Bathroom was small - not a lot of counter space. Front desk was attentive. Drum Bar was very cool. Great location near Michigan Ave.

We enjoyed the location and helpfulness of check-in staff. We spent little time in the room but enjoyed the quality of it. The hotel seemed more business oriented and very busy. The Glazed coffee and donut shop was amazing and super friendly. Overall very pleased.
