Many visitors would like the location. It allows you to stay in a part of Chicago dominated by $120 doll-loving tourists and generic chains that have little to do with the diversity of the city.
Check-In was mechanical. This hotel happily offers to let you clean your own room because it 'saves the environment' or water or something (nothing to do with saving them maid salaries). I'll pass thanks. The marble-swathed lobby is nothing special save the extremely busy concierge table, bar, coffee stand, and occasional parade of mini-skirt clad ladies ready to cut loose after a hard day of meetings in the gigantic ballroom upstairs.
The room seemed noticeably larger than typical for the price point, but that was where the fun stopped. This was the first time I have ever heard voices from the floor Above Me. This was in addition to thunderous footsteps from above, hallway conversations, doors slamming, laughing people in the room to the right, talking people in the room to the left, and outside noise through the windows. Make it stop!
The toilet was broken and needed a handle jiggle to stop running. The sheets seemed rough for some reason. Not sure if it was the detergent or thread-count or what.
On the plus side, the Starbucks in-room coffee service was delicious and mixed perfectly with Crown. We ordered a roll-away and it came right up. The room was pretty spotless too.
