I was here for a business meeting. Actually came down the night before to meet with a hiring manager over breakfast about a job situation. The hotel provided a very restful nights sleep and good workout facilities. The only downside is that only valet parking is available and quite expensive

Hello Orso52, I'm delighted to hear that we were able to help provide a renewing night's rest before your big day! Although valet parking is the only parking we offer on premise, we do offer self-parking with Greenway for $52 per night. The garage itself is less than a block from the hotel and provides our guests with an alternative...

Stayed here a couple of years ago, and then again this past week for five nights. Quick and efficient check-in. We stayed on the club level overlooking the river. Note that there is construction going on right now on the river, and at times it was quite loud. As we weren't in the room much and it was over at...

Attended a conference in late February 2014. Whilst it was absolutely freezing outside it was nice a warm inside the hotel. Bar staff are very friendly and a great location close to all of the night life! Would stay again but this time in summer as it was way too cold for an Aussie to be here in winter! The...

Clean, good service, great access to restaurants, short walk to the blue line train. All in all an excellent stay. I really liked the 20 megabit internet and the big TV. The club lounge on 20 is a bit cozy and the food options in the morning are limited so if you're a hungry person, you might want to go...

Hotel is in great shape. Looks newly renovated. Downstairs bar and lobby area are nice. Rooms were updated, had infinity shower head and nice views in the rooms. Beds were comfy. Location is great, right in downtown, everything we did was very close and this is exactly what we expected. The hotel also gave us a lat checkout of 3pm...

I agree with the other reviewers who think this is a great location, because it really is. But what you usually find with a great location is a lack of effort to do anything else well. This is usually the case with some restaurants, but apparently certain hotels also follow this same self-righteous approach to running a business. This was...

It probably has been 10 years since we stayed here - haven't been to Chicago in that time. Was given an upgraded corner room. The hallways are short and very quiet. The hotel was budy, but you'd never know it from the quietness upstairs. Very comfortable room, heavenly bed, great bed linens and the fantastic rain shower. The River North...
