We stayed here for 3 nights last week. The hotel is very dreary and in need of a remodel, but they were filled with conventions, so I guess they don't need to. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were quiet. Our shower button on the nozzle kept getting stuck in the shower position, but our room was on the 19th floor with a view of Navy Pier and the Lake. I was surprised because we had gotten the room on priceline. The nearby parking is not much cheaper than the hotel, which charges $34/night. It's a fantastic location and on the way to the Pier is a liquor store and a fabulous gourmet grocery store called Fox and Obel, where we got most of our meals. They have a cafe area where you can eat from their menu, or eat items from the store.

We had a fabulous stay at this hotel, which we booked on lastminute.com for a great rate. We just wanted a base from which we could explore Chicago and what the city had to offer. We found the staff friendly and helpful, especially the concierge who ensured we had a jam-packed schedule for each day. The location was perfect and the bedroom was comfortable and contained everything we needed for our 3 night stay. The pool, although small, was nice. Everything was clean and i would highly recommend this hotel. If I return to Chicago I would be happy to stay here again.

I visited this place for business, so a had to stay for a full week to attend a conference. The rooms are small, the breakfast was amazingly expensive and so was the internet access in my room.
I also had to pay for the gym in the hotel.
They charged 6 US dolars for one bottle of drinking water and the coffee maker was placed in ...the bathroom..in Europe that's not even allowed.
The only positive item of this hotel were the doormen.

Took the kids and did the American Girl package.... a great deal, cupcakes, a bed for the doll, and free parking ($40). The hotel is convenient to all downtown attractions. The pool is nice, small but nice. The room was nice and comfortable. A great time had by all.

We booked a night at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers through PRICELINE and got a decent rate. Our room was on an upper floor overlooking the river which was quite nice. Overall the room looked a bit dated. The bed was lumpy, and the carpeting and window treatments looked like they needed replacement. We also go the feeling that Sheraton was attempting to get every last nickle from us - from the $4 pop to the $20 muffins. Probably OK for a business traveller...but not for a weekend getaway.

For $139, any Sheraton is a good value, but for this downtown location (right on the water and 2 blocks from Michigan Ave), and on a weeknight, that value rises immensely. Lobby is very up to date, and check-in staff was exceptionally helpful. Sweet sleeper bed was comfortable as always, and everything in the room was in proper working condition. Only downside (and really minor) was the lack of an in-room room service order form for breakfast the following morning. If I could get this rate more often from Starwood, they would become my preferred program for personal as well as business travel!

They charge you for EVERYTING. Internet access in the room ($12), business center (60c per min for internet), gym ($12/day, which still doesn't have enough equipment). Room service is poor. The rooms are in need of updating, especially the bathrooms. I have stayed in motel 8's with better ammenities.
