The hotel was amazing. The rooms where the wedding party got ready were perfect. The staff accommodated our every request. The ballroom is gorgeous with windows surrounding it to have a beautiful view of the city. The staff was beyond spectacular. The catering manager was superb. It's the best venue in the city to host a wediing!

Location of the hotel is perfect. Sport center is mind blowing. Rooms are top notch. However it seems impossible to park your car in the area without being towed away so we had to use the parking within the hotel which is a budget in itself not to say a total rip-off, way too expensive. I rather would have spend... More

Housekeeping management has a bad schedule. Staff is good. 3 night stay, we could never coordinate with housekeeping. I stay all over the world about 50% of the year for business, I have never had this problem before.

The hotel itself is fine and in a good location. However I have had an enormous problem with correct billing and so after 3 unanswered emails I feel obliged to share my experience I came to your hotel on 16th November 2016 for 3 days so my accommodation was prepaid. I had prebooked through British Airways holidays. On checkout I... More

Just returned from an awesome 4 night stay here with my husband and 2 school age kids. Location is perfect, right across from Millennium/Maggie Daley and close to michigan ave, navy pier and loop. Short cab ride to museums and to lincoln park zoo too! Stayed in a suite which was really nice and roomy and gave us access to... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
