This is a brand new hotel downtown Chicago; when we arrived we were met by a very friendly bell man. We nearly fell to the floor when we were told that our parking was going to be $46. The staff inside told us that the other parking facilities would charge the same maybe a couple dollars less; but another guest told us that there were cheaper parking (of course by this time we had given the car to valet). We were able to find parking just down the street for only 34.00 (so shop around). The staff were great and really went out of their way to make the stay pleasurable. The hotel is located just a few blocks off Michigan Avenue; and everything is brand new.
I think that the Kimpton Brand hotels are the best out there for their STAFF and the amenities they provide. For example, if you sign up for their membership, you will recieve a welcome beverage (or snack) coupon which I think rocks after travelling. We got our bed turned down, and ice placed into the ice bucket (which is totally wonderful), the maid also noticed that the tv was not working (sound but no video) and she told us that she had already called someone to come and fix it...and no kidding he showed up several minutes later...great service!!! In the morning, the hotel had cold water to go which was complimentary. I really do think that its the little things that matter, and this hotel understands this. That is the exact reason we booked an anniversary party at this hotel. This visit was to ensure everything will run smoothly for the actual event.
