The room we stayed in was on the "Kiss" floor, one of the upper floors. The hotel is very quite although you can hear motor cycles from Michigan Ave. The carpet in the halls had little patches in them and are very worn. The elevators and are subtley marked as to the floors they service. A guest not familar with the system was confused and I had to tell hem that certain elevators service limited floors. The rooms are small and overpriced for what you get. The desk in our room had scratches worn through the wood as if a cat had scratched it for hours. The room is a bit drab and nothing to write home about. For the money, there are many more hotels in Chicago that have better rooms and experiences. One positive, the Art Deco Union Carbide building was saved from the wrecking ball, but a better hotel chain should have taken over and the experience would have been worth the money.
One highlight was the China Grill, which is associated with the Hard Rock, was very good. An understanding of the menu is needed. The entres are ment to be shared. The proportions are appropriate and very tastey. It's a bit pricey, but attainable and the food is different with good service.
