Lovely location

This hotel sits on a quiet side street off of Michigan Avenue; and on the opposite direction is a great view of Lake Michigan. Huge lobby with a good hot breakfast with many selections. Our room was quiet and the bed was comfortable and the room clean. The staff was helpful. We had no complaints. I would stay here again.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

This hotel is 2 blocks from Watertower Place and the John Hancock Building. Both have wonderful restaurants; but the "fast" food which is more in a European style; meaning good, "homecooked" food ready day and night with no waiting.

Over night stay

Room was clean but no updates. Staff is great. Had fridge so this is a nice bonus. If you need a inexpensive night stay for several people then this would be good for you.

Double Charged for Room

the situation has been rectified, one should closely watch charges at this location. Even though prepaid, charges were entered on our credit card upon arrival. The clerk even mentioned that it was prepaid at that time.

was acceptable

The hotel was good enough, but not great. The impression I got was that it was originally a sort of junkie hotel that was probably recently renovated. They did a decent job renovating, but it still sort of felt like it was a pretty cover put over cheap walls/structure/etc... I only state this because the price was fairly high (though I do not often stay in big city hotels, and maybe this was just run-of-the-mill). For the price I paid, I probably could have gotten a higher quality hotel.

Great location, helpful staff, very nice rooms etc = Terrific Value

Review title really says it all. The only downside is the daily AM buffet breakfast is only just decent but not great -- but hey, it's included in the price so no real complaint.

L'appetio is a nice & reasonably priced spot one level down from main floor of John Hancock bldg (accessible from outside patio) for eat-in or carry out fresh made sandwiches & soup etc lunch + baked goodies. also includes wide variety of tasty "shelved" items to buy.

Will definitely stay in this suite hotel again

Took my son to Chicago for a quick getaway weekend. The suite worked perfectly giving him a living room area while mom had the large, separate bedroom. Nice to have TV's in both areas. Brought in a sofa bed which worked well. Having a kitchen was a bonus--gave us a chance to eat great leftover deep dish pizza. There is also a nice little grocery store just a half a block away, tucked away down the street, down a flight of stairs. Will definitely stay here again.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Ask about using public transportation (buses and trains) as soon as you arrive. Taxis really add up. The front desk is very helpful in giving this information. For instance, the 151 bus runs up and down Michigan Avenue and goes to Millenium Park, the Art Institute, the Bean, etc.
