We loved our visit here. Comfortable room, friendly staff, great food and drink and amazing art in the Albert room and on moving mural screens in each floor. The artist is Chicago's own Jonathan Plotkin.

Do you have connecting or adjoining rooms? We are a family of 5. Thanks
Hotel EMC2 does not have connecting rooms. We do have an arrangement of adjoining rooms in which there is a hallway door that will close off to the front door of two guestrooms, making a private entrance to the two rooms. The only rooms that adjoin are room with one king bed to a room with two queen beds.
