Ok first thing to remember , this is a big city and this is a big hotel ( 3000 rooms) . They cater to business conventions ( why i am here) so don't expect this to be a quite romantic getaway even at the weekend . I stayed for 5 days over haloween and downstairs was like a zoo which means check in takes 30mins , getting a coffee at Starbucks takes 30 mins etc.
I was on the executive floor but my room was not "updated " as some of my colleagues , which mainly means the bathroom was clean but well worn ( all the taps and pipes had flaky gold paint on them). Staff were nice , but busy as heck which lead to small things like not having the coffee / tea replaced in the room or stirrers - little things but just annoying.
Its a great place for location of McCormick place , you cant get closer and not bad for visiting the city though if i come back with my wife I would probably stay downtown in a smaller boutique hotel less crazy
