Booking this hotel was the best thing we did, the experience was really one of the highlights of our honeymoon. My husband had emailed the manager before we arrived to say we were coming for our honeymoon and to ask some questions. When we arrived there was a bottle of champagne in our room from the hotel manager which was a fantastic touch especially after a 14 hour flight.
There was no queue for check in and it was really quick and easy. The suitcases were brought to our room really quickly after we had checked in.
The room was gorgeous really American style and reminded me of the hotel in pretty woman. There was so much character and the decor was fantastic. It was spacious with a great bathroom. There were coffee and tea facilities in the room which was a real plus.
One day we decided to have afternoon tea and a member of staff booked us in with no hassles at all. The afternoon tea was one of the best i have ever had. I dont eat meat so my husband asked if they could substitute the meat sandwiches for something else which they did with no extra charge and with no fuss. The service was great there and was really an experience i will remember. The chandeliers are memorising.
All the staff in the hotel are extremely friendly and helpful. Check out was again extremely easy. The evening before we left we received the bill under the door and if we were happy with it we could just leave the following day without going to see a member of staff. This saved us a lot of time and is just so efficient.
The hotel is located in a great location. It is about a three minute walk to the John Hancock building and all the shops are close by. You can walk to Navy Pier from it and lots of other attractions.
We cant say enough about this hotel it is really fantastic and we cant wait to go back again....
