Very cute boutique hotel however we had minor issues with it and will stay elsewhere in the future.
Check in: You need to go up to check in. We called a couple days beforehand for early check in and got it. We were on the 5th floor, would have preferred higher and a view but didn't ask so not expected.
Room: Tiny. I expect this in the city but this was beyond small. Our bedroom at our apartment is bigger... If I had to stay more than one night here I would not be happy. Our blinds did not work so the room felt even smaller. We also had a lamp that needed to be fixed. Minor issues but feel they should be mentioned.
Encore: We stopped in for a couple of drinks before a wedding we were attending at the Sears Tower (I won't call it Willis, ever.) Bartenders were nice and efficient. Downtown prices. We had four drinks $50 including tip.
Check out: Very easy, you pay for parking here (if you drive in of course). It is a hefty $57 but to be expected in Chicago.
Some points: I agree with previous posters that the elevators do take a long time so just be aware. Our room was outside the elevators and we didn't have noise issues. We could hear people in the halls when by the closet or bathroom but it wasn't awful. I'm sure a room further down the hall would be fine. The toiletries were fantastic at this hotel. I would love to buy the shampoo and conditioner. Location is great.
