Enjoyable stay
Very nice hotel for Chicago. The hotel and rooms were clean. The room was spacious, mine included a walkin closet. And the staff were incredibly friendly. The food (though expensive) was delicious. Love the location and found "cheap" parking nearby. I was not a fan of the beds or pillows, too fluffy and soft for me, but that is just a preference thing.
