Stayed in a serene king room in late February. The room was great, impressed with floor to ceiling windows, the B&W iPod dock and the spa-style bathroom. The hotel is in a great location, just two blocks back from Michigan Avenue, pretty much mid-way between the river and the lake shore. Everything is walkable - even in February we walked to the Museum campus and the Willis (Sears) Tower.
We both made use of the spa and had no complaints at all with the service or treatments we received. We only went up to the Vertigo bar once, in the early evening, but it looked a great spot and am sure it's a fun and lively place to hang out later on. Had a couple of breakfasts in the ground floor restaurant which, warm, cosy, laid back and relaxing. Food was perefctly fine, no desperate need to go elsewhere but you're within a block or two of some great alternatives.
Really only a couple of gripes with the hotel - our bathroom door didn't shut too well and would occassionally slide open on its own. The aircon was a little loud at night but maybe we were just sleeping lightly on account of jet lag and the bed was a little too soft for my tastes. Oh, and don't expect a fully-equipped fitness centre. But generally these did not detract from our stay at all and would definietly recommend it to friends/family who may travel to Chicago.
