spent two days and two nights at the Chicago Asotria Hotel. A truly exceptional exprience in a truly wolrdclass hotel. I was given the hotel room that I had previously reserved, however check in was not until 3pm, and I arrived at 1pm. No problem, I left to go have lunch somewhere, however there was not a lot of advise about what to do, local attractions, hotel ammenities (spa), etd. I felt I was left on my own. After returning to the hotel at 3pm hoping for the checkin, I was told it would be a bit longer, so I waited until about 4;30pm in the hotel lobby. Once taken to my room, everything was fine.
A word about the rooms. the major attractions were the open air terraces and the working fireplaces. Non of the terrazas have any kind of view, other than parking garages or very close apartment buildings. Really, in the case, what is the use of an outdoor terraze with terrible views, pluse terrible isect probllems. a waste, although the rest of the room acommodations are suburb.
a coupld of issues,although it was the summer,the turned off all of the fireplace access, another characterisctic that i had opted for. they should not promote this during th summer months¡s if they are not goind to have this avaialable.
in all a great hotel but not un to it¨potentential as advertzed.
