Liked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Cleanliness
The location of the hotel is perfect, you can do everything by foot, you have a gorgeous view if you have a room facing the river and the overall concept of the room is fine. There are some things that are just to consider: Only valet parking for a ridiculous price, we even paid over 150$ for the self parking options for 3 days, they charge you 15$ for WLAN per day and then you need ask for housekeeping services. The overall cleanliness was not acceptable, dust and hair everywhere, we had a chair in the room that was so stained, it looked as if they have found it somewhere in the trash. And do not look somewhere in any corner or in drawers... it is gross. So, overall it is a good hotel just in regards to the location, but if you really want something for your money, than you might need to look for something else.

Great location, 2 blocks away from the magnificent mile, all subway stations and an amazing atmosphere. Got a complimentary upgrade to a river view, kids appreciated that a lot. Very kid friendly. We are common midwestern people, felt a little bit out of place checking in but that was not an issue. Clean, easy to get too, amazing location!!! Tucked away from the Mile but easy access. Riverwalk is across the street! Definitely a recommendation to families, couples and just anyone visiting Chicago!
