This property is just lovely - a reminder of the elegance of hotels in days gone by. All of the public areas are beautifully maintained, and appointed in a fashion befitting this property. Our room had a lovely view, but was a little small. The sleeping room was clean & very comfortable. The bathroom, while well appointed, was less than sparkling. Dirt and whatever else had accumulated in the corners around the tub and on top of the baseboards. Housekeeping just missed this area, I suppose. The staff were more than accomodating. They were more than polite, and accomodated every need. The location was great for shopping and just a couple of blocks from the Lake. The parking situation is a little weird - the garage associated with the hotel is more than a block away from the hotel, while there is a public garage right next door. It's inconvenient for those of us who choose not to utilize the Valet parking. I would have appreciated having a refrigerator rather than the minibar straight from the 80's, but it was fine. Having a coffee bar on premises was marvelous! All in all - the room was a bit disappointing, but the staff were marvelous. Not convenient for Wrigley Field, but the shopping made up for that.
