I was looking to reserve a room for business purposes for one night only as I book rooms in Chicago pretty often for that reason only. I decided to splurge and get the tranquility room as it looks really beautiful and unique...the pictures does not do any justice! The room is the most gorgeous and picturesque rooms I've ever stayed in. The furniture, bed and windows are absolutely amazing...and the window seats are a lot bigger than it looks. Get the rooms with the river view, whether it be tranquility or mediterranean rooms...it's SOOO beautiful and relaxing. All I wanted to do was sit there and do my work there.
The only complaint I have is that at around 5AM, there was a bit of a horrible smell coming from the garbage/sewers outside. It reeked so bad that we had a hard time sleeping at that time, but the front desk was very accomodating and had someone to check it out and bring febreeze for us. It did help.
Food service is great, loved the food. Like any hotel in Chicago, expect high taxes and expensive delivery charges. One thing you should also expect is very expensive overnight parking...that's the downside of staying in Chicago versus in the suburbs of Chicago where it's free to park overnight.
I should also mention once I checked in, I was greeted with a glass of wine. Perfect way to start off my stay at the hotel. I will definitely be back again.
