Absolutely one of the better locations to be had when staying in downtown Chicago. The door man suggested for us to park our car ourselves to save the cost of using their overnight parking. It was so convenient and a good suggestion since we stayed several nights wanted to use taxis to get around. The only unusual circumstances are that you have to go thru their lobby to go down to the health facilities and pool area and it felt strange walking thru the lobby wearing our bathing suit and robes. Also you have to take a different elevator to get to the lobby than the one that goes to the rooms. We had a very spacious room with an outstanding view of Lake Michigan.
