Right behind the Hancock building and a 2 minute walk to the Magnificant Mile, perfect location. Staff friendly, these are hotel rooms as well as privately owned apartments, so I am not sure if all rooms are the same decor wise. The decor was nice, modern, the shower is stupid, no enclosure so water gets everywhere (european design) there was a makeup mirror/vanity area, but the lighting was poor, so it was hard to see while getting ready. The fridge was useful. The bed was HORRIFIC! They really need to get new matresses and new pillows. The pillows were so high that my neck was completely strained and I needed to visit a chiro the next day (put a cramp in our plans) The matress was similar to a water bed where you could feel every little thing, if my husband got up to use the bathroom, I almost fell out of the bed it was bad. Gym was good enough to get the job done (I am am avid health nut though so may be enough for a regular workout). Otherwise, the room was clean, room service was quick and friendly. There is an awesome place to eat breakfast/lunch & snacks right on the corner of Delaware & Michigan ave, 2 min walking, called L'Appetito. Really great sandwiches and cookies! Overall, I would recommend this place if you have a great back...mine wouldn't be able to take those beds again, so I personally would have to find another place...but perfect location!
