Excellent Location and Top Value

After reading great reviews, we booked well in advance for a room with 2 sleeping areas and was more than satisfied with our booking! It had 2 full bathrooms, a sitting area with TV and a kitchenette with a location that can't be beat.

Grrrrreat Location!

Booked a 2 sleeping areas (2 doubles) +kitchenette. It had 2 bathrooms which was such a bonus as we hadn't expected it. Room was spacious and quiet. No view though but didn't mind as we were right on the river and so close to everything. Would go back again for sure!!

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The architectural river tour, 90 minutes $25, worth every cent. Also the bridge and river museum,$4, it is a vertical museum inside one of the bridge piers, great information,well presented.

The location was excellent and

The location was excellent and the view from our room on the 10th floor was great.The service OK but received misinformation about where to go for Architecture Assoc River Cruises and very vague info about how to get to rail station for O'Hare Airport. A rather impatient attitude by front dest staff. The cleanliness of the room was good but the lift lobby carpet was dirty. The corner Bakery next door was very good for breakfast.

The location was very good. Michigan

The location was very good. Michigan Ave. was kitty corner from the hotel. The trolley hop on hop off is stop #2 on the tour and across the street excellant you don't miss anything due to being stop #2. The hotel had purified water station on every floor you can grab a bottle and take it with you where ever you went. Pretty smart idea. Also, not realizing the early train arrival we went to the hotel around noon and they gave us a room (check in at 3pm) that was a plus we did and did not want to hall around luggage until 3pm.
