Nice room, excellent amenities, great breakfast downstairs (not included), great shower, quiet considering it is right in downtown, perfect location. Loved it, and this is my new "standard" hotel when I go back to Chicago.

We travelled from Toronto on vacation and enjoyed our stay. Perfect location right near Mag mile, Chicago Riverwalk and the bean. Self parking isn't to difficult and a lot cheaper ask valet on where the parking lot is. Room size was a bit small but all we needed.

Staying here now and the bed we had was hard and uncomfortable. If we would have gotten back to our room earlier we would have cancelled our last night. I don't have back problems but I woke up feeling like crap.....all bad

The staff was very helpful and very apt in helping us to get the right city buses to see the sites. We were on second floor which was great but ice and vending were on the ninth floor and vending was bare at times. Decent workout room and water bottles were available right there.

Fabulous location right on the Chicago River and only a short walk to the Magnificant Mile and Melinium Park. Had breakfast in the on site restaurant and it was great with excellent service. Couldn't have asked for a better stay!

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.
