Great hotel--terrific location 1 block from lakefront and Michigan Ave. Contemporary decor--done very well--in a vintage building. Big room with terrific bed and linens. I loved the decor--new furniture and very clean. The bathroom was great--big walk-in glass shower plus a nice vanity. The room has a small bar/fridge/microwave in the same furniture as the rest of the room. Classy place for a good price. I used miles to buy the room but I think the normal rate is around $200. Go here versus the Drake or Knickerbocker nearby where you pay a fortune and get "lost" in the huge crowds. The hotel's valet parking is expensive at $40--I recommend self-parking within 1 block of the hotel for half the price. We will definitely go back!
