Following four nights in Manhattan, in a more expensive but considerably smaller suite, it was a huge relief to walk into a room as spacious and as pleasant as those at the Springhill Suites. Given the choice of a high floor or low floor, I chose high and had a great view over downtown Chicago. Well insulated from outside noise and with very efficient aircon, sleep is no problem and, when you're not sleeping, the Suites are well located for exploring the city - I even discovered they are within walking distance of the Blue Line metro which I used to get back to O'Hare.
Breakfast was included and was plentiful though slightly let down by the disposable plates and cutlery. Coffee is always available in the lobby. Front desk service was exceptional - another contrast with Manhattan.
Free wi-fi was very useful to have. I didn't try the pool on the top floor but hear it's good.
I would have no hesitation in coming back here next time I'm in Chicago and would recommend it to anyone else visiting.
