A modern “boutiquey” hotel well located right in the middle of action, with very good public transportation options. Review based on a one night stay in April (background of spending 80+ nights per year in different hotels around the globe).
“L” Stake/Lake station right next to the hotel. Far too many things to do within a walking distance, either in the Loop or just across the river.
Had a regular room in 19th floor which was quite sizable, certainly enough for a single traveler like me. The décor was modern. Room was very clean, no signs of usage anywhere.
Nice views to State St and “L” tracks with also the river visible. One of those hotel rooms where you don’t need to open the TV, just look out of the window and enjoy the views!
Some noise from the corridor, unsurprisingly more noise from the “L” since it is literally located under the window. Nothing too disturbing though but a light sleeper could have an issue.
A bottle of complimentary water (even two) would be nice, though.
Quick & efficient check-in with the signature warm cookie.
The complimentary HHonors breakfast was basically a “To Go” thing with muffins, fruit and coffee. So better than nothing but that’s about it.
Would I return there?
Yeah, why not. A nice hotel in a very good location
