Arrived from SFO at 1:30am and was immediately and warmly greeted by the late-night staff. The room itself was average for a Residence Inn, and small...but it was spotless and neat. Had an oven, refrigerator and dishwasher and came stocked with dishes and utensils for in room dining. I was originally booked on the 11th floor, and any view I had was blocked by a large building directly in front of my window. The next morning after breakfast, I stopped at the front desk and met Ganka, the front desk manager. She was extremely accommodating, and agreed that a guest that was staying an entire week should have the best views Chicago has to offer! I left my bags at the front desk, and upon returning that evening, was told by Ganka that my new room was now on the 22nd floor, with amazing views of the city (see photo)!!! When I arrived at room #2214, I was stunned at the size of the room ("handicap"), as well as the amazing citywide views!!! There is a full breakfast served in the morning, as well as a "Happy Hour" from 6pm to 7:30pm, which includes light "dinner" items (you can get full if you're not that that picky about your choices) as well as "bottomless" Coors Light, wines, and soft-drink selections (Mon-Thurs). Would stay again, especially if Mon-Thurs. Overall a great stay, especially for the price (under $140). As for parking, you should find cheaper lots within walking distance (12 to 18 bucks), or pay $40+ a day!
