For full disclosure, I am more of a budget traveler. We stayed here for a wedding because it was the one recommended by the couple. They allowed a significant discount for locking in a date on their website and also offer free wi-fi if you use their website to book directly. The room was nice and clean and the location is amazing. There are a number of good restaurants within walking distance. The only things that really turned me off were the unexpected costs. For one, they charge $50/day for parking (at least it was valet, but there are really no other viable options around). They also include a lot of VERY expensive snacks that are motion sensitive (i.e. they charge you if you move them) "for your convenience." The room had a mini-fridge, but this is completely filled with these motion-sensitive conveniences. To their credit, though, they brought us up a 2nd mini fridge when we asked because we needed a way to store milk for our infant son. Also, there is no pool, but it's the middle of Chicago, so that's was not surprising. Overall, it was a good stay, I just wish we had known about the parking situation ahead of time.
