We searched long and hard for a nice hotel with a reasonable rate. Located on top of an admin high rise this hotel only has 20 or so rooms. Check in is far from normal as the front desk in the lobby does this task. No fear as the staff were great to deal with. We arrived at 1000pm on... More

Really had a great time at this hotel, I have great and ok feelings about this hotel. Everything about this hotel is awesome the location, staff, view, price, gym are all top notch. But there are a few things that I would improve on. The rooms are a little dated, worm spots on towel racks and fixtures just looks cheap.... More

The staff make this Hotel: Angela at the Front Desk and Merlan in Reservations made our recent stay so successful. The view of Lake Michigan and the Buckingham Fountain from our room was mesmerising.

I selected this hotel because it looked good and was walking distance from the L train from the airport. It's also walking distance to Union a station from where we were departing. Location is brilliant, in the heart of a vibrant city. The lake views from our room were stunning. Room was beautiful and well appointed. Staff greeted us with... More

When we first checked in, front desk clerk gave us breakfast vouchers that she said were only good on Friday & Monday. She neglected to tell us that Monday the breakfast eatery would be closed and most of Chicago in that area would be closed. We had to walk quite a ways to find breakfast.

Absolutely awful! Horrible useless staff, old tired rooms, no hotel amenities, awful bed and pillows, minimum of 2 elevators to get to the rooms. This is a "secure" office building with an ill conceived hotel stuck on the top floor. Do not even consider staying here.

A rather unique hotel with very nice rooms. I did find a few long hairs (mine are short) in the bathroom. However, other than that the room was excellent. The drink and snack bar were obscenely expensive, but the staff and hospitality were excellent. I had forgotten my phone charger and the hostess loaned me her own charger for the... More

The best feature of this hotel is the view it offers, although it appears that not all rooms are equally good from that perspective. From our window we had a great view of the Sears Tower on one side and the lake on the other. It was truly breathtaking. Now for the rest of it. The hotel was somewhat difficult... More

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.
