That's a very fancy hotel for sure. Except that I was there on a business trip...
Wifi is not free (only in lobby), there are no slippers in the room, not even a spoon (hotel management obviously wants to discourage guests from bringing their food from very nearby Walgreens), no complimentary bottle of water (only $6-Fiji), bathroom is design-ish but not convenient with the very shallow sink and super heavy shower head.
Telephones are also fancy but so bright and glowing at night I have to cover them with the room-service menu.
On week-end nights, 2 of the 4 lifts are privatized for the rooftop bar, too bad for hotel guests, have to wait!
Overall, very convenient location for my work (and for jogging at Millenium park too) but more trendy than convenient, and it does not come cheap with all the extras.
