Simply said, location is great! I've stayed in better hotels, however. I arrived in Chicago via Amtrak (early!) around 8:30am. I took the water taxi to Michigan Ave. which was free that time, $3 back. The hotel is only two blocks from the dock. My intentions at 9:30 were to drop my bags off, but there was a room available, and having started my trip at 4 in Nashville, all I could say was, nice. I caught a great room rate of $144 on Expedia, day of check-in I overheard rates starting at $249. I definitely wouldn't have payed that. Here's what I didn't like about the room; one big selling point for me, traveling alone, was their DVD players, nope, none of the rooms have those, the pay-per-view movies are 11.99 for new-release and 13.99 for still in theaters(dumb). The fridge is filled w/ stuff no-one ever buys unless they Really need it because there's a Walgreen's right next door, and their waters aren't $8. So you can't fit anything You buy in there (fridge) and you can't take it out because the items are on a weight sensor and they'll charge you. No ice buckets in rooms (I wasn't only one). Elevators usually took 1-10min. Once almost 15!! Soap smells like Tylenol Cold. Room is lit by 3 piano style lights, that's it. Millennium park is 2 blocks away. I went to a Thursday Night Jazz Concert, that was cool! Mag Mile's down the road. Overall those problems aren't necessities and the location's great so I'll give it a 3, but that's also paying $144, if I payed $249, 1star, fer sure. There's too much they're slacking on. They need to get it together or just keep the rates low. Sure Hard Rock can afford it.
