My wife and I spent a long weekend here. While the facility was clean and modern (i.e., not much style), it was sorely lacking for any traveler. Being July, we really wanted to take a cool dip in the afternoon. But...no pool! My wife wanted a cup of coffee as we walked out one morning. No complimentary coffee in the... More

We stayed here the day after a night in the Hilton Chicago. The Hilton was nice enough, but The Hotel at Kirkwood put that place to shame. Rooms here were spacious and exceptionally clean. Beds and linens were very comfortable. Nice in-room amenities like bathrobes and well-appointed charging station for electronics. Decor is modern and very tasteful. Very inviting atmosphere... More

The service at this lovely hotel was exceptional. A bell hop was quick to notice us and offered to assist me into the hotel (I use a walker), help my husband load the luggage cart, take it to our room and unload it. He helped me through doors and made certain the elevator was there when needed. Our room was... More

We spent two nights here and rented three rooms for family members to attend a wedding at a nearby winery. I don't know if it's a product of an affiliated hospitality school, but everyone who worked there was outstanding. I have stayed in many Four Seasons hotels in my career, and these people reminded me of that level of service... More

Grabbed this last-second express deal on Priceline due to late baseball tournament and went for this high-rated hotel as a blind book. Not disappointed... but we're a family of four (7 & 10-year olds) so mom, dad and son had to sleep in the king and daughter on the cot that she described as "sleeping on metal rods"... plus the...

I've stayed here many times, the staff treats me like family. The food is really , really good. My client said it the best, " you could set this hotel down on Madison Ave. and it would be in the same catagory as other New York 4 star hotels"
