I had the misfortune to stay at the hilton chicago.The reason i chose the hilton was because i was running the marathon & it was the nearest hotel to the finish line offered to me by the organisers.A week before departure i rang the hotel to order a transfer from o'hare airport,i even checked the day before departure ! On arrival at the airport from the long flight from london,, guess what no transfer awaiting.. i called the hotel & an hour later a driver turned up.A taxi would have been better but there were 8 in our party.On arrival at the hotel the entrance facade is beautiful .. that is where things end.Check in was labourious & unfriendly.The one saving grace i thought was all the rooms were together.The rooms were like living on the dark side of the moon .. no daylight at all ...& for 400$ a night.our room was smelly as well.The restaurants well if you could call them that... no 1 another irish bar with food. No 2 the courtyard rest with a very average menu & barely edible food.Surly service rather than friendly .To cap things off on the day of departure at lunchtime.. guess what ?? ... After a morning's shopping we fancied a drink .. all the hotel bars were closed.. Pathetic.
All in all do not stay hear unless you are the US President ,they say they all have stayed there,It certainlly shows because a refurb since abrahan lincoln would not go amiss !!
