We got this hotel unexpectedly on Hotwire in the "4 Star Boutique in Watertower/North Michigan" area. We loved it. (Be forewarned--there are other 4* Boutique hotels in the area too, though they are probably all pretty nice.)
We didn't check in til nearly 11:00pm. The only regular King rooms left were on the 25th floor directly under the Vertigo Sky Lounge and the front desk woman was concerned we'd find that too loud, so she upgraded us to an 8th floor corner king. Of course, even that room is slightly noisy because you can hear the street noise, but it didn't b other us at all.
We had floor-to-ceiling windows looking straight down State Street. The mini-bar is simple but surprisingly affordable, though we didn't really need anything at 11:00pm. Keurig coffee maker with plenty of Keurig cups (but only decaf mint tea--bleah). Good towels, good sheets, very comfy mattress and great shower--though it is true that you can see from the toilet through the shower and right across State Street from there unless you pull the little curtain.
Big tv and big speakers for an iPad dock. Good desk with ergonomic chair. Great floor. Nice little couch. Plus two kinds of window shades so you can block people's view or block out the light altogether.
We were only there about 10 hours, but I have only great things to say about this hotel. The location is, of course, fantastic, at the corner of State and Erie.
We didn't eat anything in the restaurants or use the spa. We were told our room key would get us straight into the Vertigo Sky Lounge, but we didn't need that at 11:00pm either.
For the $139 we paid on Hotwire, this hotel was a steal. Very impressed.
