My family stayed for six nights in July and enjoyed the Silversmith immensely. Staff were efficient and friendly. Our room in the back of the hotel on the ninth floor was extremely quiet: we would not have believed it could be so quiet with the train running in front of the hotel. The beds were the most comfortable I've ever slept on in a hotel. Nice flat screen TV for World Cup viewing. The location was convenient for many attractions; however, most nearby restaurants are chains and/or open only for breakfast and lunch. We took the train to go to dinner most nights. Fado Irish Pub, Rickshaw Republic and Tandoor were superb. The entrance to the train is right in front of the hotel and is very convenient.
Disadvantages were minor: housekeeping was erratic. Most days they serviced the room in the afternoon. They did not always leave enough towels for everyone. My request for additional towels was not fulfilled until I asked a second time. As others have mentioned, bathrooms badly need towel racks. Our room was quite cramped with about seven inches between the bed and the wall and little room to walk about the room (with the exception of the entryway and spacious bathroom).
We will absolutely stay at the Silversmith again if we return to Chicago.
