This hotel is all about location- they are right off the miracle mile, and a mere 3 blocks to Navy Pier, both walks are quick, well travelled and safe. If, however, you are looking for any peace and quiet, this is not the hotel for you.
Cons:The hotel is filled with touring families, creating loads of chaos. The hotel sets up crowd barriers at breakfast to control the line to the buffet, and that was during a weekday. The hotel lobby desk is quite spartan, and was understaffed. It takes 3 different elevators (with walks between) to get from your car to your room. The room walls are thin, allowing even conversation speech to be heard from adjoining rooms.
Pros: Location, taxi stand runs through the base of the hotel, final set of elevators to the rooms are quite fast, staff is friendly
We ended up cutting the trip short due to an ill child, and checked out of the room late afternoon. The desk attendant was gracious and understanding, and we were not charged any fee for partial day.
