We spent two nights here over a weekend in late June, 2010. We arrived early and were able to check in around 11:00am, which was nice. Our rooms were fairly large. The air conditioning worked very well. The bed was very comfortable. Couple of negatives- the TV remote did not work and our shower did not drain. After about 5 minutes you were standing in water up past your ankles.
The hotel has a great outdoor pool on the 5th floor, which was a nice place to relax and cool off. They have servers who will bring you food and drinks.
The elevators were a major problem. We had to wait a very long time (all times of the day) and we had a hard time finding an elevator going down that wasn't already completely full. They need to fix this- all of the elevators service all 26 floors, so by the time they get to the 10th floor or below there is just no room on them. So we would have to ride the elevator up in order to get a spot on the way down.
The location of this hotel is great- you are two blocks off of Michigan Avenue.
Overall this hotel was just okay. I would stay here again if the price was right.
