Extremely nice !

A very beautiful hotel, great location, and corteous staff. Quite a popular and busy hotel evident by the crowd at the free morning breakfasts. Sitting and standing areas are challenging to find during breakfast and evening social hour but no one ever walks away or leaves unsatisfied. This is perhaps the only issue that could be improved but with such a popular grand accomodation, it's an envious problem desired by other hotels. Extremely nice, had a very pleasant experience.

Pool?

Everything was wonderful, up to and until we found the pool out of service. Really? Would have been nice to know going in, or we would have picked another hotel. Pools with children are a must. No discount for the disappointment.

Weekend Getaway

Great hotel that offers a lovely breakfast included in the price of your room. Great location for any activity you want to do downtown. Very little swimming pool, but the kids enjoyed it.

Nice Hotel

It was a nice hotel. lacked a few minor things that would make this better. Need to improve the managers reception. I had kids who wanted pop as well as me and wife but the long lines made it hard. To many people getting alchol need to add a line for pop only.

Staff very nice and professional, allowed to check in 6 hours early with no extra fee. Pool a little small but the kids loved it. Room nice, great view. Will stay here from now on every time we visit Chicago

Great stay

Perfect location. Cook to order breakfast was great. Everything was in walking distance or short cab ride. Will definitely stay again. Don't think I will do the car rental package however, was overcharged.
