    • 8.0.Very good

      The Hotel is well located, an easy walk to the main shopping areas, and close to the start of bus / water tours. There is also a cinema close and you can even stroll to Navy Pier if you wish. It does not have any great views as it is back of the Lake but the interior and rooms are pleasant. The only down side is I would say the Bar area is poorly laid out, noisy with little ambiance and the food nothing spectacular and pricy ( we are talking America though), there is limited options for fine dining in the proximity.

    • 6.0.Good

      Hotel close to all sights

      Overall I am happy with my experience however I am not happy with the house keeping service. Rooms are cleaned between 8am-5pm! When you are out all day and fancy some rest and your room is still a mess then that’s not acceptable. My wife did address that with reception and when we came back 90 minutes later the beds were made. But only one set of towels, no new toiletries and the bathroom hasn’t wiped down. Paying almost $300 a night I think I can expect a better service.

    • 6.0.Good

      So so

      There were quite a few things missing or subpar for the money we paid. We had to request a working refrigerator and additional furniture as we only had one chair. The sheets in the bed did not seem clean and the pillows were uncomfortable and worn. Even the sliding glass doors we’re all smudgy. The fan in the bathroom did not work. The towels seemed quite odd. The pool bar experience was not good, took 30 minutes to get a margarita and I had to ask for it twice.
