I found a great deal on hotwire for this room therefore it was an EXCELLENT stay for the price I paid but at the hotel's asking price of $229 I don't feel that it lives up to that price. The front desk staff were very polite and allowed me to leave my bags in the luggage check until my room was ready (I arrived at the hotel at 10:30am) and they called my cell when the room was ready for check in. I had a very small "double" room which consisted of two FULL sized beds. It was fine for me because this was for a "mommy daughter" get-a-way so there was only one adult and one child in each bed but if two adults needed to share it would have felt very "dorm like". The bathroom was very yellow/dingy looking and there was hair in the tub and ON THE CEILING??? I re-cleaned the tub myself instead of calling to have it done because I was too exhausted after our walking tour of Chicago to bother with with front desk. Bedding was EXTREMELY confortable but bedskirts are dirty. They looked like they may have been scuffed from various pairs of shoes? I was on the 16th floor with a "city view" but it was more of a view of an empty gravel lot than anything else. Maybe the higher floors get more out of the city view. The wireless in the rooms are $13.95/day with free wi-fi in the lobby. I did sit in the lobby doing online homework for about 2 hours, great atmosphere, good variety of music playing. The location of the hotel is great, withing walking distance to just about all of the places we planned to visit on our trip. We walked to the American Girl store, Millinium Park and Navy Pier. We took a cab to Shedd Aquarium but ended up walking back so we could walk along the water and see the Buckingham fountain (it was about a 30-40 min walk back). Overall a very nice hotel as far as lobby and main areas but rooms could use some work.
