First of all, you cant beat the location. It's in the perfect spot on the Magnificent Mile and very close the lake. John Hancock tower is across the street and worth a visit. The hotel is on a quiet street away from the hustle and bustle which made it feel more like a local boutique hotel rather than a busy and noisy mega-hotel. The front desk staff was overly helpful and when I told the clerk I was craving clam chowder he proceeded to call all the local restaurants until he found one serving clam chowder! I was impressed.

The rooms are top notch and super clean. Maid service was superb and the common areas were all very clean and nicely appointed. I loved the top floor pool with the breathtaking view of the lake.

One person complained about the trash can being in the wrong place and said they wouldn't recommend the hotel...well I think that says it all when all you can find wrong with this hotel is a mis located trash can. It's a great place to stay....period.

Nice hotel. Used to be doubletree suites. Just south of Drake hotel.

Remodeled property... much better place than as a doubletree.

"01" rooms on every floor are in quiet location and have partial view of lake.

great pool on top of hotel, decent fitness rooms(could use more weight equipment).

Only negative(as this was January) was there is a cold draft in that hotel. air comes in the window crevices (windows are floor to ceiling).
Food in restuarnt only fair.

Would stay again...

I often stay at the Hilton suites.
The only negative thing is that its Hilton suites, before the renovation it was a Doubletree hotel and now you get no more cookies!
Location:
Just 3 minutes away from Michigan Avenue. The Hancok Center ist just around the corner.
Staff:
The staff is always helpfull and friendly.
Rooms:
Newly renovated. The beds are very comfortable. There is a seperate Living room. There are 2 tv`s and one of them is a flat-screen.
Everything is brand new. The bath is big and very nice decorated.
Overall beautiful clean and comfortable rooms and what I love: The windows can be opened!

There is a snack bar in the lobby where they brew Starbucks.
The fitness room is small but the view from there is fantastic.

Cant tell the price cause my company pays.
A great place to stay for vacation or business!

We stayed here when it was a Doubletree in 2005 and it was so much better. This time the round table and 4 chairs were missing! However, the living/dining area is the same size, so there is a quite large area that is just empty. There is a couch to sit on, as there was when it was a Doubletree, but if more than one person wants to eat or write or just sit at a table, forget about it. There is only a desk that seats one person. The metal waste basket in the bathroom made a perfectly HUGE bang in the middle of the night when you walked into it because there is no place under the vanity for this bin made out of a ridiculous material. There is no shaving or make up mirror of any kind with decent light. Tea, coffee and a percolator are provided, but if you want to add sugar and/or milk and stir it, you'll have to use your finger or something else since no stirrers or spoons are provided. The pull-out couch has a bar that perfectly pierces your back. All in all a pretty terrible experience. Next time I will check out the Marriott across the street.

Stayed for one night at the Hilton Suites, located adjacent to the John Hancock building and just one block off the Magnificant Mile. Perfect location for doing business or entertaining in Chicago.

The lobby is not grand but has a small coffee shop and bar / restaurant out front. Did not eat at either place but they looked decent. There is also a small convenience store right across the street if you are looking for some quick snacks. The entire hotel looks brand new and is extremely clean and polished. The staff seems to work hard to keep it up.

The rooms are fabulous. Two room suites with a living room & bedroom and large bathroom. Again, the rooms look brand new, were perfectly clean, the bed was comfortable (typical Hilton) and all the amenties you would need. There is an HD TV in the living room area but I could not find any HD channels. Maybe that is coming.

Plenty of good restaurants in the area. We ate at Mike Ditka's restaurant (and he actually came in and ate a few tables from us) and the food & atmosphere was great. We had drinks on the 96th floor of the John Hancock building - which on a clear night is spectacular.

Overall, this is an excellent choice for the Magnificient Mile area of Chicago.

Location was terrific, rooms were just fine and the staff was more than accomadating (especially during the crazy New Year's Eve). Really liked the fact that across the street is a mini-mart - able to stock the fridge and grab snacks easily, as well as the coffee bar downstairs in the lobby that served up great "Starbucks quality" lattes.

This is a perfect place to "hang your hat" for the day as you spend the days visiting many of Chicago's wonderful sites.

We booked this hotel for a girl's week-end get away and wanted something close to all the shops,food,sights. We arrived earlier than check-in time and found a room was ready. The staff was very polite. Our room was perfect. Plenty of room for 5 of us to sprawl our bags and stuff. The rooms have a mini fridge and microwave and wet bar as well as 2 tv's and a decent sized bathroom. No noise on our floor (14th). Actually we never saw anyone our short stay there. Close to John Hancock and Water Tower place. Cabs are ready waiting for you if you need one. Would definitely stay again. We didn't try the restaraunt but did have Starbucks coffee from the little shop in the lobby.
