First weekend in Chicago and was looking for a convenient location close to downtown and CTA. The Conrad is in an ideal locations. Right in the center of some of chicago's tourist attraction. Both entrance through the mall or off rush streets are very convenient. The staff at the Patel was very courteous and was more than happy to help.
The good, breakfast is totally first class. Plenty of menu options to meet everyone needs. We had a room facing Michigan avenue. I do wish we would have been upgraded to a suite or terrace room with my diamond status. But our room had more than sufficient space. The bathroom was just as large as the room with a soaking tub and shower. The in room Bose sound system was a big improvement to the tv speaker. I sure wish the Bose unit had a sleep button.
What I wished the Conrad had was an executive lounge, but with only 400+ rooms, it might not justify for it. An afternoon swim after touring the local museum would have been a great way to relax, but didn't feel like walking over to the home wood suite. The room had a cooler that used to be a minibar. But wish they had a fridge. There is no in room coffee maker, but at request, they will bring up a kureig brewer with caraiou coffee. I wish we knew they have a kureig, would have brought along some of my favorite coffee, but there is a Starbucks around every cirner near by. I guess the only problem I found with the hotel was that there was no real quiet place to sit in the morning to enjoy the complementary morning coffee. The outdoor terrace was close nd was not going to be open up for lunch till 11am. What a nice space, would of love to sit outside just to do some morning reading while the spouse is still in bed. During the day, there is a concierge off riush street to help you with your questions. But if your looking for info at night, you might want to try the Internet.
I would probably stay at the Conrad again, but would live to try a some of the other hotel in the area. Maybe I wil go look for one with a pool or whirlpoool.
