I was excited when I saw the location of this hotel on the map. It's actually closer to my favorite portion of the "magnificent mile", which was lucky since the other Residence Inn was full! I was excited to have extra room for our 2 year old daughter and a free breakfast is always exciting! We arrived a bit early and they got us into our room with no issues and got a pack and play (sparkling clean) set up just in time for naps. The course of our big city weekend was abruptly derailed when our daughter got sick in the middle of the night. I was originally terrified to be going through this in a hotel, but the staff could not have been better. They would bring us anything we asked for, and did so very quickly. The staff at this hotel turned what would have been a nightmare into something I can (kind of) fondly look back on. So, thank you for that.
Another little thing I noticed that stuck with me was the breakfast staff. Because it was crowded, there were people down there early staking things out before the official 7:30 start time (on the weekdays it opens at 6:30, I think). In most other hotels, I would think this would be met with some annoyance by the staff as they tried to get things set up. Not these guys. They would cheerfully announce when a new item was placed out and had the best attitude. I really cannot say enough good things about our stay. We will absolutely be back, and hopefully we will be sick-free this time!
oh, and the building was gorgeous and spotless too! For the price, it can't be beat!
