I don't write many reviews but this hotel was worthy of one. I stayed here for 4 nights, 1st September - 5th September. First of all, the staff are really friendly and helpful, whatever you need, they will sort it or try at least.

If you love customer service, good food, art and cleanliness this is the hotel for you! Check out Filini's and for the best service, ask for Nikki as your wait staff. This is a flagship, international style hotel that will meet your traveling needs.

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.
