When you are coming from country with 4,5 mil of inhabitants term boutique hotel means something different than in city with more than double inhabitants that your whole country.
„America's boutique“ hotel in more than 20 stories high building situated very closely to the northern part of Michigan avenue, lake and Hancock building which is very important when you are staying in Chicago.
Hotel is old one but clean with typical American rooms (two separate rooms as one, kitchenette, two TV sets, DVD player, docking for the Ipod/IPhone) which is very comfortable for us who are used on EU standards.
On the top of the hotel there is possibility to go out on the roof and get some nice pictures of Chicago landscape.
Conclusion: good value for the money and nice accommodation in the Chicago down town.
For the visitors from abroad- That's was my first time that I bought ticket for the NBA playoff game using Ticketmaster service. I've been afraid how it will function but I just can say all the best! I pay tickets with a credit card, print out the receipt, show at the United center in Chicago and get my ticket in less than 10 minutes. Fast and safe...
