Great room, average food, and disappointing customer service. The bartender couldn't have cared less that my friend and i were there. Slow and tedious. Great room!

Must for anyone from out of town is Millenium Park and you'll often encounter free music in the summer evenings.

Good with few minor flaws

Very close to main attractions and El train. Beautiful lobby and friendly staff. Service less than perfect: found a few items from the previous guest in chest drawers; extra bed was brought in, but left upright and tied (I had to move furniture and place it myself - they apologized for it); no wifi signal in my room (the wifi fee was waived).

When looking for a good restaurant, don't always look at the number of customers: they may be there because the restaurant is close to a theatre or other reasons. Check people's opinions online or ask trusted people.

Excellent hotel with a bad restaurant!

Overall, we had a good experience, however the service at the main restaurant is bad, for breakfast they are short of waiters, the buffet is poor but the price is high ($ 20 plus tax)... But don't worry, there are plenty of excellent restaurants and coffee shops in the neighborhood.
