I stayed at the Club Quarters for 3 nights last week. Great hotel - I will definitely be back. Used to stay at the Monaco, or the Sofitel when I was a corporate employee. For the self-employed, Club Quarters is a better option!
My first Club room was tiny but cozy. Unfortunately, it backed the elevator shaft, and I could hear the mechanism. I was upgraded without asking, to a larger room with a river view. Instead of asking me to come downstairs like in most hotels, one of the front desk staff came up to my room with a new key and helped me move into the new room. Excellent service.
The view from the 21st floor of the river, Marina City and the new Trump Building was outstanding. I actually missed the cocoon feeling of the bed in the smaller room, but the larger room as a plus.
My standard for hotels is air conditioner loudness and the Club Quarters exceeded my expectations. Pretty silent central AC (unlike the Philadelphia property, where I had to sleep with a pillow over my head to dampen the loud hum). I could hear nothing from the rooms around me, except the person in the room next to me slammed the door every time s/he entered, which seemed to happen a lot between 1 and 3 am. Luckily, that person was only there for 2 nights.
There is a large lounge with coffee maker and fruit/snacks for breakfast and snacks during the day, during the week. Good snacks like M&Ms, wasabi peas, banana chips, nuts and trail mix. The rooms also come with mini Keurig machines - and my favorite Keurig brand - Caribou Coffee.
The location is excellent. Walk to Michigan Avenue in a couple of minutes, many excellent restaurants - touristy and in local neighborhoods. The Loop el (L?) trains are all right there - and the Blue Line to OHare stop with an elevator is about 4 blocks away.
