We stayed here for the final leg of our honeymoon and LOVED the location! Directly in front of the hotel is Millenium Park, and further out is the lake. The location allowed us to walk to WIllis (Sear's) Tower, the Navy Piew, and Shedd Aquarium. The room and bathroom were very spacious, and the bed was very comfortable but we didn't like the shower (no door to shut, therefore you had to pump up the hot water), the only choice for parking was valet at $55/night (whether you used your car or not) and if you purchase the internet it is only 24 hours from noon to noon (we didn't realize this and purchased the internet at 8:30am only to have it disconnected a few hours later, we assumed it would be a full 24 hours). They informed me we could go ahead an order the internet again and not be charged but it showed during checkout, we then explained the situation again and she said she took it off but again are seeing the fee in pending transactions on our credit card. You would think a hotel of this level would offer it for free!
We asked when we arrived for any honeymoon specials (seeing some people who wrote reviews here were upgraded) but she looked at us like we were crazy, not even a congratulations! Haha :)
Most importantly, the room was very clean, and in a nice and safe area!
