Another reviewer mentioned the uncomfortable working situation at the in-room desk. The desk chair is like an arm chair meant for TV watching, not working at a desk. It was way too low, such that my arms had to reach up to the desktop to work on my laptop and the 6-inch thick seat cushion deflated to a pancake when I sat on it. It was excruciatingly uncomfortable. Made a stressful business trip even worse -- just the opposite of what a good business hotel should do.
There was only a meager buffet when I went down for breakfast; no a la carte. Despite there being several jars of jam on the table, there was no butter; and none on the buffet, which I realized after I had made my toast. Of course it took five minutes to get some from the kitchen.
Such a shame asthe hotel is rather nice; and the staff couldn't have been kinder or more helpful. The decor is just a little past interesting to being somewhat strange. Kind of like somewhat at Disney's vision of a high-end tomorrowland. I kept wanting to like the hotel as it's the kind of higher-end, smaller hotel I like, but they made it hard for me. I would never go back.
For the price I paid --- over $260 -- I think you can do much better in Chicago.
