I stayed at this hotel this past weekend for business and, as usual, was very happy with my Kimpton choice. The staff was welcoming and accommodating. I had some boxes that needed to be shipped back to my office after I had checked out. The front desk/concierge handled the shipment and even called to let me know that they had...

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of July and had a very nice stay. The room and hotel look great.

We actually booked the hotel through Magellan Vacations, which I highly recommend. They have a rapport with this hotel so the original price that I booked actually went DOWN twice before we got to Chicago! The Hotel itself is very pretty and not very large, which I liked. Also impressive was that each of the front desk staff was a...

Only complaints.....elevators are extremely slow, no coffee in the rooms and on the website it indicates parking is $50 per night which it is actually $58 per night. Other than that, it was great. Staff is outstanding and very friendly. Short walk to Navy Pier!
