This property is NOT a hotel. It was built as a luxury rental apartment building but I think the management company is renting furnished units until they can fill the building with full time renters.
I also think there may be several different companies renting units in this building. We rented from Chicago Premier Suites. Our unit was on the 48th floor and was wonderful. We had a balcony that measured about 6 feet deep by 35 yes 35 feet long. Furniture and appliances were like new and bedding and towels were first rate. There was a 24 hour door person in the lobby. Parking was included in our unit which was worth a minimum of $35 per day. We had unlimited in and out so we used our car many times for attractions farther from the building. If we had used a regular garage, our bill would have been at least $60+ on some days.
It was any easy walk to Michigan Avenue and the many restaurants very near the property. The "L" subway Red Line has two entrances literally steps from the front door.
We were two couples staying in this 2BR 2BA unit with a good size living room and full kitchen. It worked out to about $250 per couple per night. We initially looked at hotels which were going to cost a minimum of $250 per night without parking and without a kitchen or living room.
Our friends in Chicago were blown away by the place and price and said they would recommend it to friends visiting them from out of town.
