Great location. If you like to walk as we do you can walk anywhere. Used Uber a couple of times inexpensively. Pool was great for the children. Free coffee, tea, and hot chocolate as well as ice cream sandwiches. Front desk (especially Charlotte) excellent.

I have stayed here many times over the years for both trade shows and personal visits to Chicago. I have always found the staff to be very helpful and the hotel room to be clean and well appointed. The attached restaurant is also convenient and reasonably priced.

Got a great deal that was non-refundable for New Year's Eve. After I booked, the hotel sent out a list of rules for the night that included limited number of people in rooms and parking restrictions. If I didn't like this and were to cancel, I'd get no money back. The parking service was advertised as "free mandatory valet after 7pm." Cool. I had the valet park my car, tipped him on the way out, then got charged $25 on my credit card days after my final bill had already been given to me at the hotel. I called and they explained that it was for parking. I said I thought t was free since it was mandatory and they said no just the valet was free, but not the actual service of leaving your car there overnight. Total garbage. I sneaky way to make guests think we're getting a service but we're actually not.

We enjoyed every minute there. Loved the food and drinks at the restaurant/bar, the place is nice and comfortable. The hotel rooms were real clean, and everything was in its place and in working condition. The service provided to me and my family by front desk staff was simply AWESOME, specially Charlotte, their willingness to make you feel at home was memorable. The pool and pool area is delightful, the gym as well. To us, the location is PERFECT. There´s no need to say that being in Chicago, gives it a BIG plus.
