Location was phenomenal. @ doors down from the Hancock, and a block from Michigan Avenue. Amazing views and the hotel was very upscale looking.
Room wasn't ready when we got there, and it was also pretty warm. Turned the AC way down, but it still didn't cool it enough. You could also hear everything perfectly clear through the doors.
Loved our stay; fabulous deal on exec king suite that was HUGE. Very quiet and clean. Amazing location one block off Michigan where J Hancock and Cheesecake Factory are. A great find!
Pro - location. This hotel is located on the back side of the Hancock Building and just a few blocks from Lake Shore. Also, the bed was very comfortable and they supplied plenty of fluffy pillows which I love but is rare to get even if you ask.
Nothing terrible, just a lot of little things that will keep us from returning. 1. We booked a suite because we travel with our 13 year old son and the bathroom was the smallest I've ever seen in any hotel room we've ever stayed at. The living area of the room was huge. The bedroom one third of that size and the bathroom was about 4'x4'. 2. The bathroom was also low quality. Plastic toilet seat and lid...it felt like an airplane bathroom. The sink was barely big enough to wash my face. There was no door on the shower and we had to request conditioner. 3. There are only two elevators that each only accommodate about 3-4 guests and that's with no luggage. Between my husband and and son and I, we were barely comfortable and we are thin people. In the mornings there were lines in the hallways for the elevators and everytime one opened it was crammed full. We learned to take the stairs. 4. The A/C in our room was not adequate. It was lovely weather in Chicago... Around 77 degrees but we couldn't keep our room cool at night. It was too warm to sleep comfortably. 5. We were I town for pleasure, a quick family trip to a Cubs game and visit our favorite shops. Our alarm went of the first morning at 6am. I'm a light sleeper and that was it for me. Isn't that something that's on the housekeeping list? Turnoff the alarm? In all, it's not a terrible place to stay. But we go to Chicago a few times a year. With so many options out there, we likely won't go back to this one.
Location super. Staff very friendly.
Room noise from restroom and air conditioning.
Breakfast was in a nearby Café on two of the three days. Breakfast counter in the hotel was limited and expensive in relation to the street Café. After some issues with the bedroom we were immediately upgraded to a larger room on an upper floor. It's a short walk to the lakeshore, from where the fireworks displays can be seen on Wednesday and Saturday nights.
Noise and vibration from the central ventilating duct made it difficult to begin to fall asleep. An attempt to reverse the sleeping position to the end of the bed exposed staining that required a complaint to be made to the Receptionist. We were allocated another room immediately. The original room was 812. Strength of wireless reception is reduced towards the top of the hotel. The hotel was originally built as a Condo Hotel and was poorly served by the furnishings installed by the developer during the construction boom time.
