I had a feature in Chicago on August 8, 2014 and usually enjoy staying in downtown Chicago when I travel. I have stayed at this hotel before, quite a few years ago, but don't remember it being as costly as this trip. I booked on Priceline to get a better rate, which was effective. However, I was not prepared for Sheraton's additional costs associated with my overnight stay. Parking was $58 for one night, but luckily I was told about a website where parking is only $13. WiFi service in the rooms is like $18 per night. Want a snack? If you happen to knock any of the goods from their cradle, that's gonna cost ya! DO NOT TOUCH anything on the mini-bar showcase that sits on top of the desk--if you move it, you'll lose it--your $ that is. This hotel is but a ten minute walk to Navy Pier which I loved as everything I wanted to do while I was there is on the Pier (Bubba Gump Shrimp, Garrett's Popcorn and Tall Ship Windy). Shopping on Michigan Avenue is a few minutes walk as well. I'd highly recommend the Sheraton, but suggest shopping on line for room and parking discounts first. Also, take snacks with you so you're not charged $20 for a can of peanuts. The beds were so comfortable. The pillows were so soft--no matter how I placed the pillow under my head, I was comfortable.
