Stayed here with my husband and baby for a large meeting & conference. The conference facilities were good and that end of the trip was fine.
We had a king room booked with a crib. On arrival we were given a double queen room, but they did change it for us when we pointed out the error. The hotel has had a recent refurbishment however there does seem to be quite a bit of wear and tear. This I think is due to not great housekeeping. The carpet in our room was dark brown with coloured stripes and it was not clean. It needed a good vacuuming. The bathroom was large with an over the bath shower but the bath itself had worn at the bottom and didn't look very clean. We managed to blow the circuit in the room a few times, by having the tv on while blowdrying our hair !! We had a nice view over the roof garden of the Aqua building and out to Lake Michigan beyond that. The concierge service was very good and we had dinner out twice in restaurants they recommended which were very good. The restaurant in the hotel "Aria" is grossly overpriced. Our meal for two with a glass of wine came to almost $200.It is mainly asian fusion style. Anyone in our very large group who ate there said the same. Apparently the restaurant that was there before the refurbishment of the hotel was much better according to the other delegates that I spoke with. There are better hotels in Chicago. I much preferred the Marriott on the mile and the four points by Sheraton.
