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).

Location:
“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.

Room:
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.

Etc:
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

Stayed here for 5 nights in late April 2013 and was not disappointed. The food downstairs, upstairs, room service and for conference functions was excellent. Variety of juices, soft drinks, teas, smoothies etc did not disappoint. Conveniently located just a 5 minute walk away from Millennium Park and and easy 5 minutes or so in the other direction to the Magnificent Mile on North Michigan Ave. In the heart of the theatre area, loads of restaurants and bars for all tastes and budgets with a Walgreens concept store one block away -- liquors and delifoods on floor 1, traditional drug store on floor 2.

The gym was clean and also had a small yoga and stretching room. Treadmills, elipticals and free weights. And the ROOFTop bar is the number one bar in the Midwest at night -- although pricey for drinks -- and one of the Top 3 in the world, allegedly.

Rooms were good but nothing outstanding ... but who cares, it's Chicago, lots of things to do in North America's third largest city.

Service from everyone I encountered was stellar, cabs always available out front and most things like the United Centre, McCormack Place etc just a $15 ride away. Also right at State/Lake loop and subway stations. I would have no hesitation in returning, and most likely will.

I stayed here for a 2 week trial at the beginning of September. The hotel was fantastic about helping coordinate shipping and delivery of over 15 boxes of exhibits (not to mention loading and unloading the boxes every day into a cab for me to get them to the courthouse). I had a lot of random issues and requests over the course of the 2 weeks and EVERYONE at that hotel, without exception, did everything possible to help me get what I needed. I just can't say enough good things about the friendly, professional, and helpful staff, from the front desk, to the room service waiter, to the maids. They also have excellent food you can order from room service (get the burger!) which I used a lot of due to time constraints. The Hotel is in a great location for anything you want to do in Chicago. There is an L stop literally next door but there are also so many great restaurants and attractions within walking distance. I would never stay at any other hotel when visiting Chicago.

I would stay here anytime in Chicago, but preferably in the summer when they open the rooftop bar's roof. What a cool place. Nice big rooms, state of the art modern bathrooms, great location. Breakfast was great in the State and Lake Tavern off the lobby. But don't miss the roof, its supposedly the hottest place in town. Wow.

I have stayed at this hotel here several times, since 2011 and have always had a good experience. It's a nice, well maintained, hotel with good service. It's extremely convenient if you plan to see a show at the Chicago Theater.
