Poor 2.0
Very average hotel. We left quite disappointed.
Very average hotel and we thought it was massively overrated. The rooms were mediocre at best - the first one we saw looked out at the air conditioning ducts! There was no hot water for half the time we were there. If it wasn't for the games room (which was booked and unavailable most of the time) this place would be even worse. Nice enough to stop in for a drink, but I wouldn't stay there again.
Dan, gb6 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Room (623) was very basic, very dimly lit and had little natural light. Also slightly noisy from partiers. Common areas (lobby, bars etc) were fantastic though. Staff very helpful and pleasant.
Oliver, gb2 night trip
Very good 8.0
Great historic building
We loved the hotel. It's in a great historic building with a fabulous lobby. We loved all of the historic touches. The room was not as large as a modern hotel, but it was very comfortable as we expected. The only downside was the heating was centrally controlled so our room was a bit hot at night and it was too noisy to sleep with the windows open. The water pressure in the shower was also quite weak. Despite these niggles, I would definitely recommend the CAA.

Great hotel
Really great hotel. Very comfortable rooms with great facilities. The restaurant was great and the wine was amazing! The bar was also a lot of fun with a choice of pool tables and games. Great location right opposite millennium and grant park.
