Mom, sis and I met in Chicago for a girl's weekend to celebrate my mother's birthday. We arrived at the hotel at 8:45 AM on Friday morning. I was able to preregister at the desk and the employee told me I could check back earlier than 3 since my room would probably be ready. The extremely friendly bellman took my luggage and teased me that "it was so sad we had to go shopping!" Security was also very helpful and locked my laptop in their security area rather than the general luggage hold.
We came back at 2 and the room was ready. 10th floor, corner room, 2 doubles. Complimentary bottled water was waiting for us as a HH member. The room was very clean and extremely quiet. Beds/pillows were extremely comfortable. The pullout bed was a no-go as it was just too flimsy. Sis and mom ended up sharing a bed :) I lucked out on that one!!
The breakfast bar each day was not crowded, but we were there around 8 am each day. Choices were the normal breads, meats, eggs. The hot foods were slightly cold and the bread a little stale the first day. The next day we got cooked to order eggs which were MUCH better. Overall not bad especially since included in the room rate. We were always gone during the manager's reception so no review on it.
The hotel offers free internet in the business center which I used two days to check email and get boarding passes. The room did not have an ethernet cable (I forgot mine) so my laptop was of no use.
The location is awesome with just a few blocks from Michigan Ave. We had restaurants all around and walked everywhere. We walked to the Oriental Theater Saturday night and did not feel unbearingly unsafe on the walk back - we speed walked back and made it in about 12 minutes :)
Overall, nice clean hotel, great staff and comfy beds. Great location!!
