My husband and I stayed at the Hilton since it was the host hotel for the Chicago Marathon.
We paid extra for a larger Park/ water view and I think it was definitely worth it. The room itself could use some refreshing though.
We had a king bed on one side of the room with a living/bar area on the other, 2 tvs, and computer. Our room had free Internet but no free wifi.
The bathroom was decent though I was a bit surprised to see no bathtub for such a large room.
We plan to run Chicago again next year and will absolutely stay here again. Proximity to rave start and finish can't be beat! However, if visiting Chicago for a longer period of time, I'd stay someplace more modern.
