I have stayed at beautiful 5 star hotels around the country, and this is the first time I am writing a review because people need to know how awesome this hotel is!!
I got an amazing deal on this gorgeous hotel through Hotwire because they are still in the middle of their soft opening. Let me tell you this place is ready for showtime!
Upon arriving the hotel, I was greeted by a very helpful doorman (from my home state) and a very friendly front desk attendant who happily accommodated my request for double beds and river view room.
When I entered my room on the eight floor, I was beyond impressed. The travertine floors were beautiful, the bathroom had two granite sinks, the toilet was separated by a glass enclosure as was the shower/soaking tub. I loved how instantly the glass wall between the shower area and the room became opaque for privacy at the press of a button (at other hotels a shade usually comes down). My ONLY complaint (and this is probably a kink they're still working out) is that water was a little warmer than lukewarm in the shower...I could never get it hotter than that.
The bed was very comfortable. I really loved the view which overlooked the river and you can see Lake Michigan in the horizon. I had the added bonus of watching the Navy Pier fireworks on Wednesday from my room.
There were also smaller, yet thoughtful details to make you feel at home. There was a nespresso machine, giant umbrella (invaluable for one of the rainy Chicago days), and I loved this one...the shower cap even came with a hair tie.
I have no doubt this will be one of the best hotels in Chicago after the grand opening. The staff is top notch, rooms are amazing...this hotel is luxury at its finest!!!
Oh, and I even saw recording artist Jason Derulo! :)
