I stayed there for one night only and had an excellent time.
The hotel (either brand new, or newly renovated, or perfectly maintained) is located just off of the magnificent mile, a short walk from the Hancock tower - a great area to stay, whether you're coming on business or just visiting: plenty to see around, many restaurants, and a different atmosphere from the Loop.
Check in was great, efficient - seamless service.
There is a cafe inside the hotel, and room service is available 24/7 - although we didn't try any - as well as a gym on the second floor.
The hall, corridors were beautiful - with a very European touch, very different from what we usually get to see in North America.
We got a King room on the 17th floor - stunning view!
Room was spacious, plenty of light, bathtub + shower, hot water and pressure all the time, great toiletries...
The only thing I could "complain" about was that our room was located close to the elevators, so there was quite some "traffic" in the corridors.
I sure would recommend the hotel to anyone planning a trip to the Windy City.
For sure, it's not adapted to all budgets.
But, I would definitely consider coming back, as in this case, the extra money really brings extra comfort and quality to a stay.
