Booked this hotel a month ago, when we arrived they did not have the room I reserved four weeks ago. Hotel was so busy and loud....Loyola University had booked most of the rooms for interviewing purposes and it seemed they had priority over us.
Our new room had one bed and the couch for my son. Carpet had black duct tape on each threshold. Icky.....and the carpet was so gross. I would not walk on it without flip flops.... The pull out bed in the couch had disgusting stains on the mattress.....I did not want my son sleeping on that bed.
I sat up most of the night on the computer to book another hotel for in the morning. We paid $405.00 a night there and I called the Ritz Carlton( at 1:00 am) and booked a room for the morning. I got a room at the Ritz Carlton. Discounted($600.00 instead of $1000.00) by the Ritz because we told them we were transferring from another hotel. The Ritz Carlton was incredible!
I have stayed at Embassy Suites before and have been pleased with the service and hotel. Embassy Suites in Hot Springs and Little Rock were great. Chicago not so much...remember, you do get what you pay for in Chicago. It's a lovely city but it's expensive.
