      Superb Hotel

      Superb boutique hotel , complimentary morning coffee in the lounge and complimentary happy hour early evening with great red and white wine. Staff very helpful, bedroom and beds extremely comfortable and relaxing. Hotel in a great position in the North River area, you can walk everywhere from this position. ( 12 mins to the River )

      Excellent front of house and reception. No tea/ coffee in room which seems to be the norm in big cities. Enjoyed the free coffee/tea available near the entrance until 10.30 each morning. Even nicer was the free happy hour each evening 5-6 pm where wine was served. Nice big rooms and comfy bed.

      Great hotel in a good location. Nice roof terrace for the summer. Just wish the bathroom had more hooks for your towels. Wine hour is great perk.

    • 6.0.Good

      On the plus side the bedroom was large and very comfortable. However, building work is taking place in the lobby area. There was very limited space to move around and sit. We had visitors and hoped to offer them coffee or tea. Just after 2pm I was told by a staff member in the bar/restaurant that they were closed and we could not have drinks of any kind. Very unusual in an up market hotel. Rather disappointed in this hotel.

      Good - size of room, wine in the evening, location, efficiency of staff Bad - room tired in places, shower curtain not screen, had to ask for coffee machine, small cramped reception and inside lounge (renovation of entrance going on whilst we were there), no free drinking water on the room

      1st hotel stop on an American Adventure.

      Nice room, friendly sraff especially Roger in the restaurant. He was extremely helpful when we asked about transfer to the airport assistance moreso rhan the hotel reception staff. He was veey friendly and chatty abs we were happy to have breakfast there twice due to this. Hotel room could gave done with some tea/coffee making facilities which would be appreciated after a busy day walking around chicago. Generally a good place to stay, local to all things worth visiting.

      Fantastic location. Amazing price. Staff couldn’t have been more welcoming. Complimentary wine between 17:00 and 18:00 in lobby every day, complimentary tea or coffee maker, bottles of water from reception everyday, great pool and gym complimentary. Amazing views from al fresco seating area. Would definitely return.
