By far my favorite home away from home. Whether we go for a leisure weekend or to attend a week long tradeshow, the staff always go beyond our expectations. Breakfast in the Ember Grille is always a great way to start the morning, and the rooms...... ahhh, the rooms. So warm, inviting, and comfortable it's hard to leave.

Excellent facilities and very helpful staff. Exercise room and staff is the best I have ever encountered for a facility within the property itself. It is so refreshing to have equipment that is in good repair, multiples of each type of cardio machine, a clean and roomy environment and again, great staff. Sam gave me a personalized core work out...

I stayed here during the first wave of the "Polar Vortex" in early January 2014 and was subsequently stranded in Chicago for days on end. The front desk staff was so accommodating as I was trying to rebook flights and let me stay far past the checkout time while I tried to figure out my next move. The price for...

I was expecting the 15 minute complimentary workout consultation according to the hotel website but got a 75 minute personal workout by a professional trainer named Sam Guiragossian instead. Sam had so much passion and enthusiasm that you would think I was paying him $100.00 an hr. He worked with me the whole time , coaching, explaining and encouraging me...

We recently spent two nights in a GREAT suite at this hotel, and really enjoyed the experience! The suite was reasonably priced ($500 per night) for the space it included, and it was perfect for a group stay where we all gathered in the suite before activities. Plus, the view was unreal, and everything is easy to get to (a...

This hotel is clean and in a great location. I wouldn't eat or drink at the hotel there again. We ordered 3 drinks (vodka sodas) and watched him pour Smirnoff. Our bill was over $40.00! Pretty over priced for a rail vodka. Also the second we walked into our room our toilet wouldn't flush. They sent someone up a few...

Great hotel right next to the House of Blues. Tons to see & do. Great restraunts and night life. The staff is very friendly and professional. The room was stylish, modern and very comfortable. Room service was prompt and very tasty, but a bit overpriced. Have already planned my next stay there!
