I have now stayed twice in this hotel. This "luxury" hotels is perfectly located near Michigan Ave as well as subways and offers fine rooms. However: be aware of the fire department nearby and the cooling system on top of the telecom building across the street. One wished the rooms were better armed against the constant noise. Oh, breakfast is... More

Stayed here this weekend with my family. Had 4 King Studios and 1 Double Suite. It was great for the 10 of us. Each King had a small refrigerator, microwave and wet bar. The beds were wonderful. All commented on how comfortable they were. Liked the linens - white down. Had flat screen tvs, analog, which was kind of wierd... More

My husband and I with two boys under 6 stayed in a one bedroom corner suite for 6 nights and enjoyed our stay. Unfortunately our room was directly opposite the Fire Station - however, the was seen as a total bonus to my boys who camped at the window the whole time watching and listening to the big red engines!...

I checked in and after seeing the room and hearing sirens from the fire station next door, checked back out and found another hotel. The room was spacious, but was in serious need of renovation. The furniture was worn, chipped and stained. The ceiling had a large water stain. The bathroom was really shabby, peeling wall paper, stains on the... More

Dear AZtravler100, Thank you for taking the time to share your review. I am sorry you had that kind of experience with our hotel; however, as of August 1st, 2010 we have completed a $4m renovation of the property. Everything has been taken out of the guest rooms and replaced with a beautiful contemporary design and feel. You can see... More

Nice hotel, friendly service and great breakfast service. It's really close to the fire station so there was quite a bit of noise from the sirens. But the front desk does have ear plugs, would stay agian.

My husband and I stayed here one night. We arrived in town much earlier than our check-in time. I had called ahead to ask the front desk if we may leave our luggage until check in time, and was told it would not be a problem. Upon arriving at the hotel, they let us check in ! Much earlier than... More

We choose this hotels from a combination of location and price. The first impression was that it was an OK match between price and quality, without being impressed in any way. But the receptionist made this a very unpleasant experience when we checked out. The previous day my wife had just left her nightgown on the bed, and it was... More

My husband, adult daughter and I stayed here for three nights in room 1003. It was spacious (compared to some hotels in the city), extremely clean, and well-appointed. The location was perfect for us, close to transportation, good restaurants, and shopping!! The breakfast was plentiful, and included something for everyone. The pool, while small, had a nice sun deck and... More

The location was good for us - close to Michigan Avenue, shopping, Rainforest Cafe, cool two-story McDonald's. There is a firestation across the street but that didn't actually turn out to be significant during the night. The hotel was a bit shabbier than I expected. My only gripe was that the breakfast (free) was poorly managed and there were long... More

good location in North Michigan. Go early to breakfast as it gets hugely busy! Across the street from the fire station, so it can get very noisy at any time of the day or night.
