This hotel is just 1 block off Michigan - The Magnificent mile. We were able to walk to almost everything without taking cabs. The hotel is very clean and simple. There were 4 of us onthis "girls trip" and we had 2 hotel rooms. One was a King size, the other had 2 doubles. The King room was a bit small, but had a great view looking down on Tiffany's, Gino's and part of the Lake . Bathroom was small, but clean, granite sinks, nice size tub/shower. The Double room was much bigger and had a huge bathroom and living area. But no view.
Hotel staff was very nice and helpful. they booked our Architectural boat trip which was nice. The resturant in the hotel is decent for a quick snack. You really want to go to the many resturants that are in walking distance. Cabs are no problem to get from this location. There is no room-service after 11pm.
the pool area is small, but not too bad for a city hotel.
Overall, the price we paid compared to the other hotels was a great deal. We were hardly in the room as there is so much to do close by, so we didn't want to overspend on the room. We thought about the Sofitel, bit it was $50 dollars more a night, and not as close to the shops and resturants, and was more stuff than this hotel.
Overall good value, safe, clean.
