Stayed at the Radisson Blu Aqua from 7/8-7/12. We travel for pleasure a couple of times a year and this hotel was one of the best I have been at in a long, long time. The check-in process took less than 30 seconds. All hotel employees from the front desk clerk, to the room service people, to the bartenders were so friendly. We had a corner room on the 11th floor with a balcony and I would highly recommend you pay the extra price for a balcony room! The views were terrific. The lake was basically blocked by other high rises, but we had an unobstructed view of Navy Pier, there is a small park directly east of the hotel we had a full view of, as well as the outdoor theater in Millennium Park (there was a free concert there our first night which we could hear from the balcony), and the entire pool area - which is gorgeous. The rooms are really modern and stylish with wood floors, which just made it feel "cleaner" to me. The hotel has a state of the art fitness center (which we did not use!) and a cool zen rock garden. We seemed to be one of the few travelers staying for pleasure - it really seemed to cater to business people. We never ate at Felini but did have drinks and appys in the bar a couple times and the food and service was great. Also, the Blu is located in a prime location - we were close to pretty much everything - we walked to the Field Museum through Millennium and Grant Parks, to Willis Tower, and up and down the Mag. Mile without any problems.
