Fisrt trip to Chicago. In town to see the Cubs play. Was able to get a corp rate that was too good to pass up. This hotel has one of the best locations, centrally located to everything including the attached Water Tower shopping mall. Lake is a couple blocks away, Famous resturants whithin steps. STaying at the Ritz four seasons is all about the service. They did not disapoint. From the greeters at the front to the maids at the back, all receive high marks. Room was a standard, had a good layout with a king bed, desk and chair. View of city and partial lake. Seems like all the rooms here would have some sort of a good view. Only bad thing about this room was the water pressure in shower. I give that a 1 star. But even that didn't ruin my over all appreciation of this hotel. Also, as I said that I was in for the Cubs game, was fun to see many of The Washington National players who were staying here.
