Fantastic location, really quirky but practical rooms, would have liked a bath but the wet room was amazing. And hands down the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. Would definitely go back

Neil, gb3 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
The hotel was in an ideal location, we arrived in Chicago very early and they allowed us to check in which was perfect. The room was very stylish and the bed was extremely comfy. We received treats from the mini bar when we first arrived and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Exceptional 10.0
This hotel is amazing! The rooms are spacious, comfortable, and well laid out. Lots of thought has gone into them. The shower is huge and has a handheld shower head, as well as the huge one in the ceiling. The toilet is separate to the shower which is really useful when there's more than one of you in the room. There's a hairdryer, iron and ironing board, blackout blinds, umbrella, yoga mat, robes, plug sockets in all the right places, a reasonably priced minibar, air conditioning that isn't noisy and can be controlled by the unit on the wall, the TV, or the app. Just wonderful!! Definitely download the hotel app so you can see your room charges, order room service, and see other useful info about the hotel and the area. The location of the hotel was perfect for me, and the Art Institute and Willis Tower were within walking distance. There are various L train stations nearby as well if you want to go further afield. I will definitely be staying here the next time I'm in Chicago.

Funky looking, well presented hotel in a good, central location. Room was generally very smart although there were a couple of elements that were looking a touch tired. Generally very happy and would stay again.

Very good 8.0
“Small” boutique hotel with 26 floors. The rooms are very contemporary and have been thoughtfully planned with some unique touches. Two lively bars, coffee shop and all day dining. Gym and meeting/event rooms. Staff in all areas professional and friendly. Good location for city exploring.

We loved our stay and would stay again. Location was excellent, room was clean and was nice. Good shower, good heating and cooling facility in room which was good as it was the end of the polar vortex when we arrived but had warmed up by the time we left. The hotel was nice and quiet and we got some good nights sleep. Housekeeping was excellent and staff on reception helpful with a good relaxed vibe!
