Everything about this hotel is top notch. This is not your typical Hilton by any stretch of the imagination, but then again, neither is the price. But you get more then what you pay for. The staff was excellent and very helpful. The rooms were very nice and large and made you feel very comfortable. Equipped with Ferragamo products (didnt know existed). The soaking tub was excellent and actually used it to get that cold Chicago chill out of my bones!
As it is freezing in Chicago now it wasn't that busy and I had the spa to myself which was really nice. Great massage and great eucalyptus steam room and hot tub.
House car was also a nice perk (New Merc Benz S550). Used it to drive me to the Daily Center for a court appearance. Very nice driver, would not accept a tip. Neither did anyone else at the hotel. Although its a nice way to thank people for their service, its nice not to have to go into your pocket every 5 minutes to thank someone for something that is part of the service you should receive.
