The front desk staff weren't the most enthused individuals, but hey, it happens. My room was excellent. Breakfast was better than I've had at any other LQ. Sausages, fruit, waffles, coffee, etc but the hot food stations were staffed, which I can definitely appreciate. I had a room with a panoramic view which faced another building but still offered enough of a view to make the next morning better than average. Michigan Ave is about a 10min walk away and there's an El-Train at the the end of the block behind the hotel. There's a small Giordano's tucked away a few blocks up along with a Subway, Arby's, Dunkin Donuts, Walgreens and few other places fairly close.
My biggest gripe would have to be parking. It costs $45 to park your vehicle in the garage next door or you can try to figure out how to pay at the machine and park on the street. The staff doesn't mention this at check-in, so I actually had to have someone that worked in the garage explain how to get in and out privileges. After you get your ticket validated by the hotel, it's automatically attached to the room then you're golden.
One final note. This hotel is in the business district about 3 blocks away from the SkyDeck. So if you're like me and think about getting late night snacks, get them before 6 or 7pm because the stores in the area close early and you'll be out of luck until the morning, unless you drive or walk elsewhere. Thinking about going to the SkyDeck? Get your tickets early and print them off because the line will easily be wrapped around the corner an hour before it opens.
