Arrival - After getting out of the cab we were greeted by the friendliest bellman! When we walked into the lobby... it smelled wonderful! We arrived several hours before check-in and because there were rooms available they allowed us to check-in early! Sweet deal.
Rooms - Our rooms were small and some travelers may be turned-off by this. We were only there for a night and hardly in our rooms so it wasn't an issue. Also, whenever I stay at a boutique-style hotel I don't expect large rooms. The linens ere so soft and comfy and the room was nicely appointed and modern. The bathroom was a shower only, no tub but the Le Occtaine toiletries were wonderful!
Location - walking distance or a short, cheap cab ride from all things great in downtown ChicagoMore
