4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I liked the location and restaurant bar. Rooms were nice as well

Awesome. Helped me get l a I d. She was all over me. The room's decor inspired her to get real freaky.

Perfect location on the loop. Shopping and great foods are only a couple blocks away.

Good, location, room was small, bathroom had an odd layout View of the park was limited for a room that charged extra for it Stains on the carpet

I was impressed by contemporary design. Great place to spend a weekend with a family. Nice pool, sauna, game room. We had great experience

Nice hotel overall. Staff were friendly and answered all my questions. My only comment is that the commute from O’hare is not that convenient. There is no free shuttle service so we took the train, but the train does not come terribly close to the hotel; it’s about a half-mile walk. It was ok for me as I only had a light rolling suitcase, but I imagine that for someone who packed more heavily it would be quite a rough trip, or they would have to pay handsomely just to get to the hotel.

Nice hotel. Always love it. Sometimes seems out of the way abit but not this time. Would recommend.

Perfect location to where all the action is in Chicago

Great location; no prior notification that indoor pool out of service and still charged full resort fee of 25 per day; poor ventilation in guestroom; Concierge overworked and rarely available; housekeeping failed to clean room at all one day of our stay; attempted to eat in hotel restaurant and long wait to be approached for service; no in/out privileges in parking garage; slow elevators; nice balconies but hard to enjoy with no furniture; wouldn’t spend the $$ again on this hotel

They tack on charges for things like "Urban fee". This is just an excuse to take money from customers. No one could tell me what it was except that it was required...

Great hotel. Clean rooms and facilities. Friendly staff. Good location to downtown events and parks. Breakfast buffet was amazing!

We stayed for just one night of a three night trip to experience a hotel in the city. It’s right in the heart of things and very convenient to great locations. We enjoyed walking to millennium park, the Chicago cultural center, river walk and restaurants. When we checked in at 3 there was a line and they don’t necessarily make you feel special, it’s a large hotel so the personal touch isn’t really there. Also the indoor pool and hot tub are under construction. The outdoor pool was nice but the advertised bar is only open on weekends. The room itself was beautiful and comfy. I’m glad to have experience this hotel but would probably choose something else next time. It seems like a great choice for families and to be close proximity to activities in the city.
