Decent getaway weekend

The hotel delivered in an efficient way, though our demands weren't strenuous as we were mostly away. The views on the river side are gorgeous.

Weekend in Chicago!

This hotel had all the right stuff for our family. The fitness room was very nice. It had several of each equipments, and nice weight machines. The pool was a highlite for our kids! The pool area was large, clean and the water was warm enough to stay in and enjoy! It also was conveniently located so we could jump on the bus to get to Michigan Ave., but we found State Street to be a great place to walk and shop with the locals. Lower sales tax and less traffic! I did mark the cleanliness low, because the room was dusty! Our daughter sat on the couch with a bang and a puff of dust came flying up! The sunlight was coming in at the right spot to catch the dust cloud which grossed me out - but, it was just a nice reminder that that's why Home is Sweet Home! All in all, a good location, great pool and fitness, and very quick and nice staff! We had a great time!

Great central location

I attended my son's basic training graduation at Great Lakes Naval Command which is 37 miles north of the hotel. The hotel is within walking distance of fine dining, nightlife and transportation. I will stay there again on my next visit. Parking is expensive, but parking in downtown San Francisco is about the same, so I can't complain.
