My wife & I stayed in a Junior Spa Suite for our honeymoon and it didn't disappoint. The room was crazy spacious and the views over downtown were top notch.
We didn't use the kitchen area at all but it was well layed out and had all the basic amenities you'd need to dine in.
**Attention inquisitive mini-bar people (like us) - be aware that removing anything from the mini-bar will automatically charge to your room, even if not consumed. We only realised after reading the notice AFTER checking out the bottles of wine on offer. The front desk however were great and they removed the charged items, no questions asked. I know this is now standard in most higher end hotels, which is a great system, but just a warning to anyone who's not come across this before.
Everything was excellent during our stay, except for our rooftop bar experience, hence the 4 star rating.
The rooftop bar is amazing and the views are to die for, but we found it very pretentious, even for a Wednesday evening. The waitress couldn't have been less interested, bordering on rude, until we wanted to put the bill on our room, which she then had to bring a separate bill for.
Having said that, we enjoyed some late afternoon drinks in the Phoenix Lounge and their service was fantastic.
The hotel is within walking distance of most of Chicago's touristy sights which is a big plus and if you're looking for a special stay, then this is one I'd highly recommend.
