We stopped at the Silversmith on our way to a Notre Dame football game. It is a very nice place with newly remodeled rooms. Ours was a suite with a comfy sofa and art deco decor. Bath was very nice with a large walk in shower. Silversmith is on the el line, but we were in the rear so that was not a problem. Their restaurant is being renovated and so is closed. They do serve a continental breakfast in the lobby. There are also restaurants nearby.
It is located neat the Art Institute and Millennium Park.
