I came to see Chicago with my two teenage children. From what I could tell about the Acme online, it seemed like it would be a good fit for us--boutique without being stuffy, food on site, great location, and the kind of cool, modern feel we like. But...spoiler alert...the hotel was even BETTER than I expected. We were upgraded to a suite upon our arrival, which was perfect for our party of three. Now, my son definitely did not sleep comfortably on the pullout, but my daughter and I slept like queens in the heavenly beds. (We just swapped the rest of our trip...hey, they're young!) The bed linens alone are just blissful, especially after a long late night flight. All of the Acme staff are upbeat, helpful, and genuine. The on-site bakery is to die (try the cake balls-- cinnamon was the best), and I smiled every time I got into the elevator. My favorite album covers lined the elevator walls and it felt like someone had raided my high school record collection.
The shower was great, loved the bathroom. The rooms are a decent size for a city hotel, especially the suite. BE CAREFUL...they have an electronic treat tray in the kitchen area and my son lifted the tube of $5 reese's pieces BEFORE he read the "you lift it you bought it" sign. No biggie, but be fair warned. Although we didn't have a special view, we were more than happy with our room. Free wifi, great flat screens with ipod docs, and great cozy bathrobes. The location is perfect too...we walked everywhere. I'd come back here in a hot minute.
