We had an eleventh floor suite with two large bay windows that gave a tremendous view of the Buckingham Fountain Grant Park, Lake Michigan, and the skyline. The rooms were stylishly renovated, modern, and somewhat elegant. Two huge flat-screen TVs. The entire staff, from bellmen to reception to housekeeping, was very friendly. The location cannot be beat.The restaurant was good for breakfast. The negatives were the very tiny bathroom and the ancient room air conditioner that leaked all over the floor. Engineering took up the water from the carpet using a shop vac and supposedly fixed the unit, but it happened again the next day. Over all, it was pleasant, but it is not a bargain by any means.
