Attending a convention last week I spent 5 nights here in a standard king room. First the positives, the location is excellent with all the restaurants and bars nearby plus Navy Pier being a 20-minute walk away; the staff were truly excellent, from the doormen to reception to back of house - nothing was too much trouble, they had great recommendations on places to go and things to do, and were very enthusiastic about giving the best experience to their guests; the restaurant, Davanti, was superb - serving probably the best steak I have ever had (the steak Fiorantina). The negatives - rooms are rather tired and dated, definitely in need of upgrading; the sofa in the room was not very clean so I avoided sitting on it to watch TV; it was hard to get the temperature of the room right as adjusting the control at 21 degrees seemed to turn on the heating; sirens were blaring pretty well all night every night from either the nearby fire station or police - not the hotel's fault but some double/triple glazing would not go amiss.I could return but it would not be for the rooms especially at $265++.
