Based on traveling to Chicago on business for the last 10 years, this is the best deal in the Michigan Ave area. The rooms are spacious, clean, quiet, and the staff is very accomodating. Simply put, this is the best deal around. Everything is in walking distance if you perfer, and convenience to the train and cabs is also easy. The breakfast & fitness room make mornings a snap, and the convenience of nearby restaurants make dinner/lunch very easy. The true suite rooms (there is a door that closes & truly separates the bedroom from the living area) make traveling with others/children very easy. The kitchen is stocked with utensils and dinnerware. This has become our preferred location & doubtless will remain so.
