This November, I was half way around the world in Chicago for a 10-day stay which included the Thanksgiving holiday. Yes, I did have the Thanksgiving dinner at the hotel restaurant -- a tasty four-course meal although I do not share the American predilection for pumpkin!
This is one of my favourite places to stay in Chicago which is an architecturally beautiful city and is best enjoyed walking Its street are broad, and the buildings not too tall. This combination makes the streets bright and airy which is so much better for walking. The Conrad is in the middle of all this. Theatre, shopping and great places to eat are within walking distance. The river, if you want a boat ride, is about 150 metres away.
The Shops at North Bridge are connected to the hotel and offer a variety of shops including Nordstrom, restaurants, and some interesting luxuries if you (men) want to pamper yourself -- a shave of a haircut at The Art of Shaving.
Sadly most hotels in the US have done away with stacking your mini bar and some have removed them completely, but the Conrad has the option of ordering goodies to fill the mini bar / room fridge. Depending on your room or Hilton Honors status you could get a fresh coffee maker placed in the room.
The staff are friendly and accommodating. The restaurants are good, and for the thirsty traveller there is complementary coffee and tea in the lobby.
