This was to be the start of our honeymoon and so I took care of which hotel was going to be the beginning of our Route 66 adventure. I booked this hotel on the strength of the TA reviews and I was not disappointed at all. We were greeted very warmly by the check in supervisor and were checked into our room with ease.
The room it self was very spacious, the bed was lovely and big, comfortable and with a choice of pillows my new husband was in love!! The bathroom was not huge but the shower was wonderful, the best thing for us after a long flight.
The view was incredible and we could not wait to get out and enjoy the city. We went to the John Hancock tower for the views which is within 10 minutes stroll. The whole city is accessible easily from here and it is mostly flat so it is easy to do.
All staff members we saw / spoke to were very nice and seemed happy with their work. We didn’t spend any time in the bar downstairs and so I cannot comment on that but if it was the same standard as the rest of the hotel you won’t be disappointed.
I would highly recommend Chicago as a city and the Affinia as a great place to spend your nights while you are there.
