My wife and our youngest daughter who is 20, stay at this hotel for 4 nights. I discovered the hotel from researching on Tripadvisor. I would not stay in any other hotel if I ever come back to Chicago. It is extremely convenient to the train (one block away), the lake, and the Art Institute of Chicago, along with so many other attractions. I'm a lifetime Advantage Gold card member, so I've traveled quite a bit and this hotel rates as one of my favorites. If you are arriving at OHare, take the train (about $5) and don't take a cab (about $45). The train stop for this hotel is only about one long block away from the hotel. One of many Garrett's Popcorn stores is near by. The club at the top of the hotel, called "The Roof" is mainly for singles. For our family, it was a nice place to look at but it was best left for the young singles. The staff is wonderfull and so gracious their guests. You will notice the birds chirping in the hallways during the day and the quiet sounds of crickets at night. These sounds are piped in through the speakers located in the hall. Don't worry, the sounds are not loud enough to be heard in your gorgeous room. I don't think any room has a bad view. Our's had a view of Lake Michigan.
The Magnificant Mile is a couple of blocks away. The Chicago Bean is only a few blocks away.
The hotel opened a couple of months before our stay. I don't believe you will be disappointed with your stay.
And one more thing, yes, this is a Doubletree so those fresh moist and warm chocolate cookies are waiting for you.
