I was so impressed with the service at the front desk provided by Renuka and Suheyb! They recommended some great restaurants, one including "Quartino's" (Italian) within walking distance. The bellman who helped us with our bags was also very friendly. Our room with a view of the river was spectacular - clean, modern with two vanities in the bathroom! Rooming with two teenage girls was easy with this set up! There aren't many hotels with free WiFi - much appreciated amenity. We didn't eat at the new restaurant in the hotel, but will most likely try it next time, as it looked very inviting. We ate at The Bakery Cafe both mornings for breakfast and loved it - just a few steps away from the hotel. The location of the hotel was perfect for what we wanted to see/do. It is extremely close to Millennium Park and all the shopping on The Mile. We walked to Shedd Aquarium; although it was quite a jaunt, it was doable given the nice weather.
An overall fantastic experience for us - loved Hotel 71!More
