My husband and I visited Chicago many times, but this time decided to bring our little dog along for a weekend get away in Chicago. This hotel is conveniently located downtown near the Chicago River. It is a very nice hotel, something you would choose even if you don't travel with your dog. Only the 2nd floor allows dogs, which is too bad for dog owners, as there is no real high rise view. The hotel personnel is friendly to dogs and welcomed our dog. They also offer dog sitting if you choose to dine without your pooch. You can leave your dog in the room if you leave him crated. This hotel offers complimentary happy hour (munchies and drinks) and also complimentary breakfast on every floor. We had a very nice stay at this hotel and our pooch really, really enjoyed her stay. Every Sunday there is a "canine" cruise which was very interesting to take. An hour and a half of cruising down the Chicago River and out on Lake Michigan.It is the same as the regular architectural cruise, except pooches are allowed. Very nice! We all had a good time.
