This older hotel in the heart of Chicago was a very good find for us. It was a birthday weekend for a family member combined with attending a fundraiser nearby. The price is quite reasonable, especially when you consider that it is one of the few downtown hotels that does not charge for parking (which can run $50 a day or more at other hotels). The location was also great for our purposes, within walking distance of the Michigan Avenue sights and shops, many good restaurants, and access to public transportation. When we arrived for check-in, I asked if it was possible to get a free upgrade to a suite, and bingo! The suite was tastefully decorated with plenty of room to spread out and relax. Our king bed was very comfortable with nice quality linens. Everything, bathroom included, was impeccably clean! The bathroom is quite small as is the counter top around the sink, but quite doable for two adults. Best thing of all at this hotel was the absolutely superb service we received from every single staff member with whom we had any contact. There is a lovely large indoor heated pool on the rooftop with a pleasant deck just adjacent. Free good coffee and newspapers in the lobby for early risers were available and much better than the coffee provided in the rooms. Navigating the hotel is a bit tricky depending on which wing one stays in due to the building possibly being two older buildings that were combined, but we did not find that to be much of an issue in the long run.
