My friend and I stayed here to go shopping and hit Rush St. for nightlife. I am from Indiana, but just across the border and know the area, but didn't want to have to worry about going home after a night out. We booked on Hotwire for a great price.
The minute you walk in, you are pleased by the pleasant (and soothing) sort of lobby. The front desk staff is EXCELLENT and took care of us. We even got to move in early and were upgraded from one bed to two and from a city view to a high river view.
The room was HUGE. It had an office, a very nice bathroom and two large beds. Closet space was ample. It came with two comfy chairs and a HUGE window. The view of the Wrigley building and the river was great. I don't think I have ever stayed in a hotel for under $200.00 in Chicago with such a view.
We had no coffee in the room and wanted some before we left, so we called housekeeping. They brought us some with no fuss. Very pleasant staff. We went out to shop and it was a great location and the main reason for booking. The checkout in the AM was easy. And since we had to wait to catch the train, we left our luggage with the bellman. Brilliant staff, really great.
Altogether, it was very nice. The shower was amazing in the morning and the linens were clean and bright. I would definitely stay here again. The service and location alone should sell you!
