Let me just start by saying as a neurotic, slightly type A young woman who's been traveling for quite some time...I did my research before staying here. And even still, I was blown away by how truly gorgeous this hotel was.
The lobby alone leaves you in awe. The staff greets you like you're their first (and last) guest. They also have a strict no tip policy throughout.
The location is a major draw. It's right in the heart of downtown. For my fellow shopaholics, it's 2 blocks from the world famous Madison Avenue (Magnificient Mile). Also, it's directly across the street from a Walgreens and around the corner from a nice organic supermarket.
I enjoyed my stay here over the Labor Day weekend. It's in my top 5 of the best hotels I've ever stayed (and I've traveled internationally). The rooms were ahead of its time, very modern & sleek decor. The tv in the bathrooom mirror still trips me out!
