Everyone was so nice and friendly. It was in a great location. The bed was ok. The pillow was a little to firm for me but overall the room was nice. I liked that they had water that you could put in bottles to take with you.

I've stayed here before. And the cleanliness, area, and location keep me coming back. BUT I feel in time certain things in the room need to be fixed or replaced. Plus you have to ask for everything in room room, like iron, ironing board, kitchenware utensils, which is fine, but takes a while sometimes. The TV remotes only worked sometimes. I was able to sign into Netflix, but unable to sign out. And all the outlets in my headboard and night stand were not working. Uploading the app was pointless because it asks for a reservation code, a confirmation code, and I just wound up going to one of the kiosks upon arrival anyways.

Anne S - We are delighted to hear you returned to stay with us again! We apologize for the lack of some of the items in the rooms as this is simply due to the pandemic and hope to return these items soon. We will also ensure maintenance takes a look into some of the other issues as this is not typical for us and will ensure they are rectified. We look forward to serving you again the next time you are in Chicago!

We paid over $200 for a room at this “beautiful” hotel. We got to our room and there were NO WINDOWS. We were on the 10th floor. We felt like we slept in a basement. There was also no mini fridge so our food went to waste. We called and asked if we could upgrade and they said there were no rooms available. But all of the other rooms on our floor had no occupancy all night?? Absolute waste of money.

I am an extremely picky person and I LOVED this hotel! If you have a family you wont regret staying here I promise! Best hotel I have ever stayed in by far. They make everything convenient for you, the check in is a breeze (you can check in from your phone), the hotel is separated by two sides which makes elevators quick and not crowded and they're room key operated so you don't have to worry about a bunch of random people running the floors of your hotel. They have water stations with purified water on each floor and offer new clean water bottles for you to fill up. Also whenever you need room service you can simply send a text message and they will bring whatever you need to your room, you never have to go to the front desk. The bedding is luxury and the most comfortable I have ever felt. If you have a big family like me (family of 5) get an executive suite, it offers 2 separate bedrooms, a common living space and two separate bathrooms, two flat screen tvs, and a twin pull out bed (perfect for toddlers). Don't second guess book now

Overall we had a great stay. HVAC was a little noisy (rattling sound) in one of our two rooms, but that's the only complaint. I didn't bring it up to the staff, though. Staff was super friendly and helpful, location is great. Everything seemed very clean.
