We stayed here to celebrate our 4th anniversary. I booked this based on TripAdvisor reviews, and the rating is completely justified. When I asked them if they had an anniversary package over the phone, they said they didn't do anything like that, but at check in time, they upgraded us to a beautiful Deluxe View King Size room, facing the River, 2 levels above what we booked.
There was also a nice bottle of Merlot waiting for us in the room when we entered.
As for service, housekeeping and room service was always spot on with our requests and the concierge was very good with his recommendations for dinner and brunch, didn't try to push the restaurant on premises, to us.
The location is pretty much the best in Chicago downtown - stone's throw from the Magnificent Mile, facing the River and less than half a mile away from the best restaurants, nightlife and attractions in town. Even though I live in a suburb of Chicago and stayed here for the weekend, I think it was completely worth it, and more.
Not to mention, they extended our check out by a couple of hours.
Would recommend in a heartbeat.
