Visited Chicago for three nights following six days in New York.
Initial impression of the hotel was very positive with welcoming staff and great lounge space.
We were fortunate enough to have a one bed suite on the ninth floor. Good lounge area with floor to ceiling windows looking down the side of the hotel to the main road. Large bathroom with shower and great Fuji spa bath. Bedroom was lovely with big king sized bed looking out through a floor to ceiling window.
Restaurant was superb with high quality food and service to match. Turn up early or book as very popular with locals.
The swimming pool on the 17th floor was great to use on an evening and I had it to myself. Views over the city as you swim. There is an open air terrace beyond the pool which I suspect on a warm day would be a fantastic place to view the city from.
Hotel is very central for the main areas of Chicago. Once you get your directions sorted it was within easy walking distance of all key locations.
Chicago is a wonderful city to visit and it is hard to think that there is a better hotel to base yourself from.
