After visiting for a second time, this time for multiple days/nights, I have to say this is my favorite hotel in Chicago. Upon arrival, I was offered an upgrade to a Lakeview Spa suite. Well worth the money.
Inside the door is foyer/kitchenette. On your right is a wall of cabinets with a sink, refrigerator and microwave. Wolfgang Puck coffee for the coffee maker. To the left are two large closets, one walk in and one appointed with an organization system.
The living/dining room is ahead and features the sofa sleeper, chair, coffee table and dining room table for four. The couch is comfortable, especially for being a fold-out sleeper. TV is huge- 46" I think, with true HD.
The bedroom combo desk and entertainment center has a separate stocked refrigerator in the minibar. The bed is comfortable & is perfectly aligned with the 46" HD TV.
Bathroom is incredible- shower with hand-held sprayer and large soaking tub. If you're careful not to splash, sink is functional enough. Lights are on a dimmer which is a great touch if you want a romantic soak in the tub!
I enjoyed an incredible massage in the spa. Spa was clean, well staffed & well appointed. They had a weekday, 50 minute massage special for $60 which runs through end of the year. Never had such a good, reasonably priced massage!
