This hotel is located front and center on South Michigan Ave. with some rooms commandeering excellent lake views. There are CTA bus stops right outside the door. The train stations are a 10 min walk from the hotel.
Our room on the 15th floor was extremely clean...even inside the air conditioning vents! The help staff was always helpful with bus routes and schedules and places to eat.
They provide a shuttle to most major museums (although drop-off only), but even that is unnecessary with good weather as most are really close by.
Before booking, be on the lookout for special rates at the hotel's website. They offer all kinds of special rates.
