Classic Kimpton experience - nicely furnished lobby and rooms, pleasant staff, feeling of a boutique hotel, nicely priced. Great view from pool. Restaurant was very good. Bar had excellent mixed drinks. Only criticism: $58 valet parking.

I'll start with the positive aspects first. The location was good for exploring the area, whether on foot, by metro, or by boat. The Magnificent Mile (Michigan Avenue) was only three blocks away, with loads of shops and restaurants along the way. As for the room, it was clean, comfortable and quite spacious. Now with the less-than-positive aspects. Although my...
