I purchased the Groupon for this hotel which was $109/night for a king riverview room. When we checked in, the staff was very helpful and pleasant. Although a high-rise, you still get the quaint feel of a boutique hotel. The lobby and onsite restaurant (Hoyt) had great modern and comfortable furniture. The room itself had a marvalous view from the 32nd floor. Bed was super comfy, as was the chaise lounge. Like other reviewers said, the walls are a little thin and the bathroom could use some updating (mainly the tub as it was VERY slow to drain after showering), but these things didn't bother me too much to ruin my stay. The staff responded quickly to my request for more towels and I loved having a Keurig in the room. Unfortunately, we had a very busy weekend, so we didn't spend a lot of time there. But I'd love to go back, especially at that price.
Few tips: The attached garage is $45/night. But you can park at the open lot right next to the hotel for about $28/night. We parked our car and walked or took the bus wherever we needed to go, and cabbed it when it got too late.
But the location is optimal, great for those who want to shop/dine/play on Mag. Mile and come back to their room to rest and/or refuel. Also great locale to reach the parks for the Taste of Chicago or other events. Wish they had a pool, but oh well..the beaches in Chicago are a great substitute.
The restaurant at the hotel next door Bacino's also makes a decent deep dish pizza. And try the Corner Bakery (1 min away) or Yolk (5 minute cab/bus ride) for great breakfast alternatives.
