Wanting to check out the newest Marriott property in Chicago and one that looks like a W Hotel on their website, was anything but. Very nice atmosphere and great location just north of the river, the Hotel Chicago rooms were very similar to what you would see at a W Hotel. My disappointment started with the check-in and lack of enthusiasm from anyone. I walked past three people and no one bothered to say hello. In fact, I stood in line directly in front of the concierge who did not say a word. My room was nice and spacious however had no view and overlooked the House of Blues.
In summary, new hotel to check out if the rates are low, however once the rates increase I would rather stay at another similar type hotel.
