We got a deal on this classy hotel when we stayed in June 2014. They included a $60/day voucher that could be used against parking, restaurant, etc. That saved us parking elsewhere in a dingy public parking lot, that we were not comfortable leaving our car at for the weekend. The service was excellent, very fast. Nice lap pool. Great sauna and spa. Rooms were huge, clean, and nicely decorated. From our hotel you could walk to Gibson's Steakhouse, the Magnificent Mile, and even down to the river for a boat tour (maybe 20-25 mins walk). Not sure about how long to walk to the zoo, but we drove and it was only 5 mins away. Within 1-2 blocks there was Tempo Cafe (a super breakfast place), and Pizano's Pizza - both casual and delicious, with great service, not pricey.
