All employees very nice and professional. Checked in and only request was room away from elevators. Booked a king and got 2 queens??? Where "upgraded" to larger room. Booked a single king room 400 sq ft for $369 - not a great deal but Chicago during RSNA. We were warned carpets were cleaned and still damp??? They were cleaned that morning.
Went to business dinner and returned and room was hot, extremely humid (think Florida in summer), and strong musty smell. My wife's very well controlled asthma was set off after 5 minutes (I am a MD). She rarely needs her inhaler but this set her off. We were very promptly moved to a top floor room. All night I listened to the elevator go up and down. Very little sleep. my wife also. The shaft must be next to room as it is obvious. So we booked a quite king and ended up with a double queen next to elevator shaft and my wife having a hard time to breath. My only request was a room not next to the elevator. The room we ended up with was loud every minute.
Very unimpressed and we are easy going travelers. Clean, quite, and good bed. The rest is fluff. Rooms and people were otherwise nice.
