My (now) fiance and I traveled to Chicago for a long weekend in November. A month prior, I'd been told twice through email that we would have a room on a higher floor, but when we got there the afternoon we were to check in, we were given the bottom floor, next to the elevators.
Because it was the only king room available, we switched to a room with two queens, which turned out to be a much larger room with a partial view of the Willis Tower. The other room looked out at some air conditioning units or something. The beds are comfortable and the rooms decently appointed--and the location is definitely a good one.
It was just very disappointing, as my fiance had never been to Chicago before, and we had issues from the start with our hotel.
I wouldn't recommend trusting that you'll get what you ask for, but it's a decent hotel.
We got engaged that weekend, so at least that was a highlight!
