Can't beat the location, easy access to transit (CTA), walking distance to lots of restaurants, and good value. Assigned a lovely corner room on the twelfth floor. Two windows faced the Hancock Bldg and one faced an adjacent building (nice light). Very spacious for two adults and two teenage girls. Beds were comfortable. Elevators were fine ... occasionally a brief wait ... never an issue for us. Mornings were busy, so we just took the stairs down after letting two full (elevator) cars stop and proceed from our floor. Checked out the roof deck just steps from the top floor bar. Caught a couple glimpses of boats on the lake. BONUS! Had no bug sightings of any kind as a previous reviewer stated. Everything seemed as clean as we would expect in a hotel that gets nearly constant use by a wide variety of people. We also never heard any sounds other than an occasional siren on the street. The room was quite warm at first, but we eventually got it regulated. Front desk allowed us to check in about an hour early. Overall ... a very nice 3 night stay. Will definitely consider staying here again. The location is unbeatable!
