My husband and I decided to have a staycation with another couple from the area (we don't live far from Chicago), and we picked this place due to a Groupon deal it was promoting. Check-in was a breeze, and our rooms were super cool. We were in a corner king suite, which overlooked Michigan Avenue to the North and East. We could also see Lake Michigan!
We really enjoyed our stay. We definitely made it a frugal one - we parked in a different overnight garage to not pay the $50 fee the hotel has. We also ate all of our meals out. (Everything on their menu is really pricey.) Be aware that in the king rooms there's a big window in the bathroom that makes showers very drafty! We really enjoyed the amenities included though (shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, bar soap, shower cap, vanity kit, sewing kit, hair dryer, makeup mirror, etc).
Our only complaint was the sheets on the bed. I swear they're made out of something with plastic in them. They felt really rough and scratchy and they did not breathe at all. Woke up several times in a sweat! it was a top sheet and a thin comforter and I was in a total sweat because the blankets did not breathe! Our friends had the same problem with their sheets in their room, so I'm sad to say it wasn't just a fluke isolated to our room. Seems the sheets are just really scratchy everywhere.
Just be aware of the scratchy sheets! It's such a neat place with a very cool, moody atmosphere. Haven't been to a hotel like it before. Would love to go back!
