Went for a 4 day family trip and loved the location and staff. The lobby is under renovation, but not really a big deal unless you like to hang out in lobbies (the Hilton has a great lobby right next door). An older hotel, but the rooms were big and beds were good. The room temp was a bit wacky as it was hot and when we called about a/c they said it wasn't turned on yet and 'you'll be fine'..lol. We were fine. The Shedd, Field Museum and Adler Planetarium all within walking distance across beautiful Grant Park which is across the street. I'd highly recommend getting a City Pass and a CTA pass if you are staying more than 3 days. We saved a ton of money this way and they staff were very helpful on which transit system to take and where they were. The pool is big, staffed and there is an outside terrace that is lovely as well. I'd definitely stay here again.
