We stayed here for three nights earlier in the month and were not disappointed.
We were allocated a huge room with two very comfortable large beds and a well appointed bathroom containing lovely soft towels. The room had a marvellous view of Lake Michigan, showing the Navy Pier to the left and Soldier Field to the right, which was particularly good for watching the fireworks one evening!
The breakfast buffet had everything you would want to eat to start the day and the food in the Kitty O'Sheas was very good value.
The only downside were the lifts which you had to wait ages for. At the time we were visiting there was a large contingent of accountants on their annual conference so the hotel was very full which probably didn't help.
Taking everything into account, we would certainly stay at this hotel again in the future and would recommend it without reservation.
