From the 19th floor, spectacular view of Lake Michigan and Navy Pier including the Ferris wheel. The breakfast was very reasonable and excellent. The bar is part of the lobby. The rooms are small but very efficient.

This was a very nice hotel, great veiw to the Navy pier, walking distance to alot of places. Warm cookies and cider when you check. Lively bar and resturant. Just a lovely stay all around. Smells fresh and clean.

Stunning views of Lake Michigan. Spacious, clean and comfortable rooms. This location is incredible for running along the lake front path, for spending time at the beach. The location aside the the lake front is a little separated from the main attractions, bars, and restaurants

Great upscale room, and awesome views. The staff was all very friendly and helpful. Easy check in and check out process. The only downside was high prices at the bar... $32 for 2 drinks and that didn't include our tip.

We were lucky to have a lake view. Probably best to ask the hotel for that when making a reservation. Just looking at a map, seems that rooms facing east would face the lake. Good hotel, good location, expensive valet parking!

Yes they provide fridge and coffee makers upon request, for no extra charge I believe, just let them know when you book. They were great about meeting every one of our special requests :D

Not sure about dog policy. Contact hotel direct for answer and costs etc but there were lots of locals around the hotel with dogs so would assume it’s Ok. As for grass areas. There is plenty of space around the hotel streets. A short 10 Minutes walk to the “Bean” has plenty of park area. There is also a small park area across near the Wharf.

Hi! Yes! I used Parkwhiz to find an overnight parking garage at a nearby condo for just $19. Another one is Spothero. Make sure to Google for coupons.

"Lake Front Views!!"
"Higher is better"
"Get river view - the city view is just a single building."
"Don't go is my best advice."
"We were on the 26th floor looking at the lake."
