Was booked here 3 days for a class. Loved It!!! got there at 7:30 am and thought I'd have to wait till after class to get checked in...but no they gave me my keys and told me I could go unpack and get ready for class.
Walked in and WOW....really nice room big white fluffly bed..Big Fluffy Pillows were to die for!!!! TV was already turned on and had a welcome with my name on the screen....10 th floor (office building right across the street but is is downtown Chicago) had a device you can put your Ipod into to play (I have a zune so it didnt do anything for me) free wireless in room. desk area.
2 sets of shades can be lowered, room darkening and shears.
Also have a mini fridge filled with drinks....beer or soada $4.00 each. There were also misc snacky foods with a price list .
bathroom very nice (larger bottles of shampoo, conditioner and lotion) No Tub...but the shower was pretty nice.....rainshower head, glass wall looking into the bedroom (there is a curtain on the bedroom side if you would like privacy, but it might be fun if you there on a "romantic" stay) had robes, slippers & blowdryer.
There was a nightly turndown service where they whould leave chocolate covered fortune cookies, draw your shades and leave on soft music on the radio. If you are in your room you can just tell them you dont need the service but would still like the yummy cookies.
Oh I did read some complaints about noise at this hotel.....I think it may be a matter of what you are used to.....if you are used to the sounds of the city...no problem. If you are used to the quietness of the country, you may have a problem....the ceilings are concrete so people about you are not heard....only heard the occasional emergency vehicle go by.
We were there for 3 day conference/class so we ate at the hotel for breakfast (they did continetal breakfast for us, break had continetal stuff still on it. Lunch all 3 days was yummy and never the same at any meal (though most of the foods (including the BBQ pork) had a kick to the flavor.
Great location walking distance to to lots of things to see. We did milennium park and the bean, art institiute, and buckingham fountain. Lots of great places to eat around (I forgot just how good Pizzaria Uno's really is).
My only complaint.....I could not get the elevator to work for the whole time I was there...the night I went and picked up my Pizza from Unos I had to ride the elevator for about 5 min till some nice people helped me get my floor lit up. Its the kind of elevator where you have to put your room key in and raight just the right amount of time for just the right light then enter your floor...well...I could never get it right!!!
Definatly would go back!!!
