We stayed at this hotel a few months ago to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The hotel is conveniently located on Wacker Drive, just south of the Chicago River. It is a perfect location, close to the attractions in the River North tourist area, the museums/ Loop, and close to public transit that will take you to Northside or Wicker Park neighborhoods.
The hotel was decor was a little outdated, but that didn't matter because of the incredible view of the Chicago River. Rooms were spacious and beds were clean and comfortable enough for a good night's sleep. The only concern was that the bathroom tile was cracked in a few areas and the bathtub was a bit small. This was not a huge problem but it might be for someone expecting luxury.
As far as I know, no pool or hot tub was available. There is plenty to do in the area to keep you occupied otherwise.
All in all, a decent location and an incredible view made for a wonderful stay.
