My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Chicago for two nights. We were in town for a conference. As most reviewers have stated, the hotel is in an excellent location to almost everything you could want or need to do while in Chicago. A riverwalk is steps away and Lake Michigan is only a few blocks. I enjoyed a couple of good runs along the lakeshore and it was great to have the hotel so close. Millennium Park and the Bean are also very close.
The Sienna Tavern is across the street and you should definitely give it a try. They have excellent food and the atmosphere is fun, lots of people-watching late into the evening. If you're looking for beer, the Public House is also very close and has a huge selection of both draft and bottled beer. Try the Bloody Mary with the Loaded up Skewer!!
Our room was comfortable and well-appointed. We didn't have much of a view, as we were on the 6th floor, but the size of our room was very large with plenty of space for the two of us. The bathroom was nothing spectacular, but the towels and toiletries were lovely. The bed itself was fitted with soft sheets and I had an excellent night's sleep.
We did not find the hallways to be exceptionally dark. I have stayed in NYC hotels where you can barely find your room. The elevators were always quick and available. Customer service during check-in and check-out was very amicable. We were able to get in and out quickly.
My husband and i enjoyed our trip and would definitely consider staying at the Hotel Chicago for future Chicago trips.
