Loved this hotel! During a week long trip to Chicago, we planned to stay at three hotels and this by far was the best. It's modern, fresh, bright and clean. The room was all of the above as well as spacious. I made a specific room request via booking.com which was noted upon check-in where this was the only one...

We picked this hotel because it was close to millennium park and navy pier. Hotel was very clean. Unfortunately our sleeping arrangements for our room weren't what we asked for at booking. Also, the outdoor heated pool was closed. Concierge wasn't available 2/3 times we went down.

The hotel is clean, Service is good and the brunch was also excellent. It is within walking distance to the theatre district. We also walked to some nice restaurants like Joe's and a cupcake shop. I will stay at this hotel again.

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

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.
