Excellent hotel but check your dates !
Arriving from the UK on a six night break with my wife, I was unaware it was Presidents Day national holiday weekend. As such, the hotel was full for three of those nights and we had to skip the buffet breakfast and complimentary drinks evenings due to it being so crowded. The staff were fantastic, especially housekeeping. I would return, but choose my dates carefully

Four days in Chicago
Good location although you have a 10 min walk to nearest subway station. Easily walkable and you can detour around the underpass which can feel a bit intimidating at night-I travelled on my own with my son so was conscious of this kind of thing but otherwise felt very safe whilst here.Excellent inclusive breakfast which is busy on a weekend so you may want to eat earlier. Stayed in two room suite,very spacious and well equipped with small kitchen area and good bathroom. Complimentary drinks and snacks in the evening which you are given vouchers for. Used pool and sauna which could have been a bit cleaner, sauna used as a dumping ground for towels and also never really got hot enough to use. Would stay here again though - nice hotel.

Very comfortable bed in a suite. Happy hour each evening was very popular with a good selection of nibbles and complimentary drinks. Views from the lake from the hotel are somewhat limited. Rooms very clean.
