Parking: Convenient, located underneath the hotel. Reasonable. Check-in. We ran into several problems, because we were given the impression that the athletic club and the pool were separate from each other and that our daughter would be able to swim. NOT THE CASE!!! We were SO disappointed. And we did not receive any help from the staff - they kept... More

We only spent one night here and would have really liked to stay two. Yes, it's kind of a funny set up with parking and finding breakfast, but the view from our large room was wonderful, overlooking the lake. It probably could use some sprucing up in the rooms but nothing terrible. Breakfast was good, not a huge selection but... More

Sure, the furniture is stodgy and scuffed but its right in the heart of the financial district, within walking distance of the Lake and many attractions and the price is right. I have to say, try to get there early to get a suite, since the "regular" rooms are really worn out and not as spacious. The marble tabletops are... More

Are you planning go to Chicago? What do you think to stay at the 40th floor and enjoy a fantastic skyline of Chicago? Have a amazing city view from the comfortable appartments of this hotel. Find one (or more) of the tallest buildings of USA, just sitting in the sofa of the huge bedrooms and have a nice stay.

Let me just preface my critique with this: we would go back to this hotel. My fiancé and I drove to Chicago for his birthday weekend. We spent a lot of time researching hotels & restaurants because it was his first trip there. We read a lot of reviews where people said the elevators/keys were confusing or cumbersome. We did...

located on the 40th floor of a financial services building, this Hotel makes use of the common services to the Hotel. Complimentary with the room is the use of the club & the buffet breakfast served above the Chicago Stock exchange. The rooms are oversized & the view from the 40th floor is stunning. Overall a great value for money... More

We were on the 40th floor. The view of the city at night was phenomenal. The staff was very helpful and even offered to let us check in early since we arrived at 8 am. The room was very spacious, I loved the spacious bathroom too. It's conveniently located and very easy to find. The subway train stop (CTA) is... More

Don't let the adventure be a turn-off -- this is a great stay. Room is 3x the size of most big-city hotels. Private, quiet, very comfortable. Two-room bath with private toilet. Second sink in the main room. Bay window with stunning views of the city from 40th floor. Fridge in room; microwave in club room. Weekday breakfast is on a... More

On the downside, quirky entrance 2 elevator rides, to get to room, room decor was quite dated but who cares. Health club not open on Sundays which they don't tell you online when you... More
