We stayed for four nights in July, and had no complaints whatsoever. Our river view room on the top floor offered a spectacular view of the Chicago River, and the window ledge seating was a perfect place to sit and watch the world go by.
The bed was comfortable. The easy chair was also very nice. We didn't watch much TV, however it was a nice big screen.
The bathroom toiletries were "okay". The bathroom overall was functional, but not elegant.
The staff we met were uniformly friendly. The evening social hour is very popular, and features decent wines, a great white sangria, and lemonade. I didn't note any munches, however.
I really liked that the hotel has bicycles you can borrow for as long as you wish. Chicago is a pancake flat city, and after you walk across one street from the hotel you can access the bike trails, and be down on the lakefront in about 5 minutes!
The hotel could not be better located. It is a 3 minute walk from the Chicago Theatre, 2 minutes to the "L", a minute from the Chicago River, and less than 5 minutes from Michigan Avenue and Millennium Park. Dozens if not hundreds of restaurants are within a short stroll. Dunkin' Donuts is just around the corner, for a quick breakfast.
