There is nothing much to say except the place is a little dated. The view was good, the room not spacious. No problems nor anything inspiring. The coffee set up in the conceirge lounge is terrible. The starbucks machines are a crazy slow from the high volume required. I am a Marriot SPG guy but I am not going to...

I stayed here for a two day conference. The friendly staff welcomed me from the start. I enjoyed the typical hotel amenities. The cleaning staff did a great job each day. Several public transportation options are available near the hotel. It costs about $50 via taxi from O'Hare airport.

I guess I am the lucky guy getting a room that was refreshed already. 36th floor, nice design, comfortable bed, well equipped modern style bad room, large tv, fast and reliable internet,... What else do you want. Also the check-in was smooth and the staff was friendly. But the most valuable of this hotel is the location. It is hard...

I have stayed here over 5 times in the last 2-3 months and my rooms have always been nice with good wifi and elevators that work pretty quickly. There is a very lively bar on the ground floor of the hotel particularly when conventions are there. The hotel is on Michigan Ave so the stores are literally at your doorsteps.

Our family has stayed at this hotel every year since the late 1990's at Thanksgiving weekend. We did not get to come in 2014 and 2015 due to illness and death of a beloved family member. I booked four rooms in August and was advised I would be pleased with the hotel's upgrades since our last stay in 2013. We...

If you're looking for a good HQ while visiting Chicago, this is it. Access to the Magnificent mile is about as close as you can get. Rooms are very clean and updated nicely. Service from the bellman to housekeeping is typical top notch Chicago. The bar is good and the lobby coffee shop/store is great, not to mention open 24...

We arrived before check-in time mid-day Saturday without issue. Our room faced east, looking over Michigan Avenue with a peek of a Lake Michigan view. We walked to Grant Park and the Art Institute then Uber'd to the Museum of Science and Industry. I did not rent a car in Chicago and made the right decision. Parking is expensive and...

This hotel is very close to the Wrigley Building and Chicago Tribune WGN building (Chcago River). It is also very close to the Grand Luxe Restaurant (a must!) and not far from Water Tower Place (where the American Doll store is located) and the John Hancock Building. On the west side of the building, it is only a few blocks...

From my arrival to check out excellent service. The clerk at check in was very helpful with everything her name is Michelle, and she's very friendly and helpful. My room was rather small, but adequate for one. Located right on the best shopping street in North America.

Neighbourhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
