Absolutely awful! Horrible useless staff, old tired rooms, no hotel amenities, awful bed and pillows, minimum of 2 elevators to get to the rooms. This is a "secure" office building with an ill conceived hotel stuck on the top floor. Do not even consider staying here.

A rather unique hotel with very nice rooms. I did find a few long hairs (mine are short) in the bathroom. However, other than that the room was excellent. The drink and snack bar were obscenely expensive, but the staff and hospitality were excellent. I had forgotten my phone charger and the hostess loaned me her own charger for the...

The best feature of this hotel is the view it offers, although it appears that not all rooms are equally good from that perspective. From our window we had a great view of the Sears Tower on one side and the lake on the other. It was truly breathtaking. Now for the rest of it. The hotel was somewhat difficult...

Found this hotel as a Hotwire deal and it was a great surprise. I don't normally do boutique hotels but I figured I would try it. After reading reviews I was concerned about checking in and such but I found the process just as easy as any other hotel. The location is great being right off the loop and near...

The hotel is hidden in a financial building with limited quantity of rooms. The location of the hotel is quite convenient. The most amazing thing of the stay is to enjoy the breath-taking view from the window of our room on 40th floor. We even took the deep dish pizza back to the room in order not to miss the...

I have nothing but good things to say about our stay! Everything was great, amazing view, free breakfast, clean room, friendly and helpful staff. Got a great deal on booking.com. We will definitely stay here again next time we visit. Parking was tricky, but it's Chicago, it's tricky to park anywhere. We left our car in the underground garage, and...

Booked 3+months prior based on positive comments about the spectacular views...thought I'd spend a bit more here since we were celebrating a special occasion. Is there a "bad" view in this place? Well, yes, you actually can be disappointed. The south views aren't great. The customer service isn't great. At checkin, desk clerk advised me to remember my room number...

I must admit the hotel is bit confusing, primarily because it only exists on one floor of a much larger building. The benefit to travelers is that the hotel occupies the 40th floor, which provides some stunning view of the financial district of Chicago. There is something memorizing about sitting in a chair by the window and gazing out at...

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.
