Stayed there three nights for a large annual conference in Chicago. A lot of people flock the city for this one. Happy to have tried it, will look for something else next time.
Good things: courteous staff; nice, clean well kept room (a suite); plenty of fine amenities; good wireless in rooms, steakhouse restaurant is worth the money
Bad things: breakfast service in restaurant was bad, took very long to get my order; my room at the end of the inner "courtyard" was dark, they were out of adaptors although this must be an annual issue with so many europeans visiting at once (Walgreens had a stock!) there is a smoking section in the hotel i had to walk through to get to my room, room were not noise proof, could hear other guests, wireless in the lobby did not work.
Personally: little too trendy, too little heart to be great.
Advice: if you do stay there, get a room on the outside, check if breakfast service is running normally, otherwise have either room service or go to another place for breakfast, DO check out the steakhouse, good service good food.
