I loved the look and feel of this hotel - its very minimalist, so if that's what you like, this is the hotel for you. The rooms were spacious enough, very clean, beds super comfortable and the bathrooms spotless. The restaurant and bar downstairs were quite the scene - had dinner in the restaurant, which was totally packed on a Monday night and the food was delicious. The room service is served in paper bags and to go cups, which is nice if you're in town for business. The gym was decent - had sufficient machines and free weights. My biggest area of complaint was that I waited for a taxi for almost a half hour both days - perhaps it was weather related and the concierge assured us that she called for taxis numerous times, but either way was frustrating. I even called ahead to the concierge on the second day to avoid being late to my meeting, to no avail. Great location if you have time to explore Lake Michigan. Overall, a great room and hotel, especially at the rate I paid.
