    Io avevo una matrimoniale,in ogni caso era un letto matrimoniale normale,perché la camera non era enorme(per gli standard americani)...quindi credo abbiano letti singoli standard.

    How much is parking if using the hotel's parking service?
    6 February 2017|
    Answer
    Response from sshasan | Reviewed this property |
    I think it is $56 a day. It's a lot of money but pretty typical for hotels along North Michigan Avenue and the Magnificent Mile. Off site parking is available but it it can still run $40 or more with multiple re-entry.
