Overall, an excellent hotel right in the heart of downtown Chicago. Staff was extremely helpful and polite at all times. I would highly recommend this hotel if your downtown location in Chicago is a must.

From the minute we stepped out of the cab we were greeted by friendly staff. From check in to check out it was flawless, friendly and we loved it. The concierge Nick was great and handled all of our tours.

I loved the location of this hotel. We were walking distance to almost all our destinations. We walked to the Bean at Millennium Park, the Magnificent Mile, Navy Pier, and our dinner restaurants. It was great! The Rooftop bar was a lot of fun too.

Perfect location to great restaurants, theater, Millennium Park, Michigan Ave, Navy Pier, Shedd Aquarium, Field and other museums. Marina Tower's Hub 51, Roof top bar at the Wit is a happening place late night. State street shopping as well.

The rooftop is tiny and overcrowded. The staff was more like club security than hospitality persons. Next time I'll stay somewhere we're either left alone or welcomed. Cookies were delicious. Rooms were average.
