As every other reviewer has pointed out, this hotel is in a prime location in the Gold Coast. You can walk to Michigan Ave plus the surrounding area and find a wide variety of shopping and restaurants.
Speaking of restaurants, the Hilton restaurant is closed for remodeling. They claim the new restaurant will open sometime in later November. You may wish to check with the hotel on that status if this is important to you. Since the restaurant was closed, so was the bar in the hotel. Next door is a Sushi place (looked and smelled great) the lobby has a coffee shop that is still open. There is also a temp breakfast location on second floor but I did not visit it.
I've stayed here many times in the past. This hotel can sometimes be a better value than similar hotels in the area. However there are some issues I noticed this time around. I stayed on floor 16 and could not get a stable wireless network connection. After paying 12.95 for wireless I called down to the desk and they said "we'll look into that for you" The charge did not show up on my bill.
Secondly the standard room I was in was looking rather worn. Definitely a 3 star accommodation.
The thermostat is not accurate, even setting the room temp to 72 degrees I was very cold.
I seem to remember larger and cleaner rooms on my last few stays back in 2010.
So over all this is an acceptable hotel (except for the non existent wireless connectivity on higher floor) but would not wish to stay for an extended period. I will mention that I would prefer the Hilton Suites to the Millennium Knickerbocker around the corner if that helps you.
