Firstly it's not on the Magnificent Mile, though the location is fine with plenty of nice places to eat and many places within a short walk. It's a big, busy, bustling place - not really what we like but as we were just having a brief stopover that was ok.
Maybe it's me being not used to the US hotels but I found paper cups for coffee in the room a bit incongruous. You have all this 'flash' glassware and bottled water but the cups seem out of place.
Our problems were as follows:
Internet access in rooms - yes, no problem - except it costs and we had to ask how much. Then we have two iPhones and two iPads and that meant according to the concierge a x4 charge.... Almost $40 a day...... Hmmm, ok sits in lobby and it's free- provided you - you guessed it - asked for a code.
Ok, coffee in a double room - 3 coffee sachets..... You guessed it, asked and we were given some more, and some milk as well.
Ok, toilet tissue, no spare..... Ok let's go and ask for some......
Ok no facial tissues, had to go and.......
It's the little details that make life a hassle or not.... Being on a trans USA trip it would have been nice to just 'have things' to hand.
Ok let hope the next Doubletree is not on an economy drive.
