    Exceptional 10.0
    We stayed here several years ago and the place isn’t recognizable now with the upgrades/renovation. The hotel was clean, friendly staff and the roof was comfortable with a great view. We will stay here again.
    Jacob, usRomance trip
    Very good 8.0
    Everything was fine except I thought there would be a little more personalization for a person that stays at the hotel for seven days and I found that the front desk agent, Gaby, was hard to work with upon check-in and departure.

    Great Location in Downtown Chicago
    Beautiful hotel on the river with great views. We enjoyed the rooftop bar the first evening and the convenience. My only complaint is that wifi is $18 /day. We had stayed in Great Lakes for a few days prior to going to Chicago. I always find it a greedy that big city hotels charge extra for wifi. Any other hotel in smaller cities across the US provide it as a standard amenity.
