There was much to like about this new hotel - we booked a king suite that looked out over Ohio Street and provided a nice view of the Hancock Tower. The living room included a small fridge and a microwave/wet bar. The TV had dozens of channels, and the wifi was reliable. The glowing lips nightlight was awesome, and the bathroom itself was well-stocked and clean. The bedroom provided us with a very comfortable king-sized bed.
The only downsides to this property are ones already mentioned by other reviewers: 1) there is no valet; we took a little transponder and parked our car in a nearby garage; 2) the noise from the hallways, while infrequent, was certainly audible; 3) the heating unit was LOUD.
When we checked in the manager was answering calls on a walkie talkie, and frankly, we did not exactly feel welcomed. However, aside from that, all of our interactions with the staff were great.
I found this experience to be one step below my experiences with Kimpton properties in Chicago, but I'm glad that I tried out the Acme, and I would consider staying again.
