Nearly everything about this hotel was wonderful, and I got a fantastic price on Priceline.
I was in Chicago for a quick weekend to attend a friend's wedding, and shared the room with my (adult) niece. From the moment I checked in, I could tell that the stay would be great. Despite arriving very early - my flight got into Midway at 11AM, I was able to check in right away. Staff at the check in desk were very friendly and accomodating. The room was very clean and comfortable, a nice size, and was set-up perfectly for sharing, two beds, two closets, two bathrooms.
This is a very large place with lots of meeting space, and is popular for weddings and conventions, and the weekend we stayed was no exception. The lobby area was always bustling and busy, and is perfect for people watching. Because we were in town for a wedding, we didn't spend much time in the hotel restaurants, but did have a very nice - if pricy - breakfast buffet in the very casual lobby restaurant. It was fast, and the made to order omelettes were especially tasty.
If anything could have been better, it would have been nice to be a tiny bit farther north, but that's really just nitpicking. The hotel is located very close, within easy walking distance, of Grant Park, Millenium Park, and the Art Institute, and everything in the Loop. Though it's a bit south, we even easily walked to Watertower Place and back.
All in all, a great stay.
