My husband and I did a christmas weekend in the city. Our room looked brand new, very clean and modern. The best part was the bed, SUPER comfortable. Honestly, after a full day of doing things, cocktails, dinner and a show, all I really care about is a good night's sleep. Loved the location too, we had a beautiful view of the lake and planetarium.

This hotel exceeded my expectations. It is centrally located and has a nice restaurant connected. The service was excellent. I would stay here again.

Good hotel for a convenient stay. Room service was ok, not great. Our bed was left unmade. Door is too thin and noise from hallway is pretty loud.

Near Michigan Ave and overall less expensive than the Hilton next door. But the experience is not as gorgeous as Hilton as we stayed there twice
