I had never stayed at this hotel before and to be honest I didn't realize that it would be so convenient a location when I booked it. It's an unusual set up where you enter the building and have to take an elevator up to the hotel lobby on the 5th floor. The hotel is housed on the 15-19th floors of the hotel. When we checked in they mentioned "corner view" room but I didn't know what they meant.. well.. if you stay here, get a corner view room! Two of the room's walls were almost completely glass. One view was of the river and the other towards the city. At night it was gorgeous!
Our first night there we didn't know where to eat and the woman at the desk suggested Lou Malnati's .. for it's traditional Chicago Style pizza. The restaurant was a quick walk to blocks over.
The next day we were able to walk to Michigan Ave, the Navy Pier and back to the hotel.
That night it was a $7 cab ride over to the Hyatt Regency for the event we were in town to attend.
I would definitely stay at this hotel again the next time I visit Chicago.
