Excellent hotel, welcoming, friendly and helpful staff. the bar/restaurant not only follows that pattern with the waiting staff but the food is top notch, can't recommend the Truffle Benedict enough, and reasonably priced as well.

I was primarily looking for one with a nice big soaking tub, and even though I booked the King room with a soaking tub for one it was definitely...

Bar/Club at top, nice restaurant on main floor. Chicken breakfast burrito came fast and comes with room rate with gold/diamond status as doubletree benefit. Don't visit on a budget. Rooms were simple. Fitness center a bit small. Walk north 2 blocks north or so to get to river walk trail.

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
