We are members of the Ambassador rewards program and received an upgrade to a large, 2 room suite at check - in. Complimentary fruit bowl and bottled were delivered to us. The bedroom was big, comfy king size bed was perfect and furnishings well appointed - desk, bureau with flat screen TV. Free WiFi, as well informational computer provided (no internet unless you paid for it) Nicely renovated bathroom with separate shower and bath tub. No problems with water pressure even on a higher floor as mentioned in other reviews. Living room area was large with several windows over N. Michigan Ave. We were up on the 28th floor and during the day could hear sirens from street level, but it was quiet at night. This room would be useful for a longer business trip or a family needing the spread-out space. Bigger flat screen TV here. Furnishing in this room was a little drab. There was a second bathroom too!! All staff were helpful and the concierge reserved Architecture Boat tour for us. The ENO wine, cheese and chocolate bar in the hotel was a terrific and taste-y 'date night' evening. Recommended. PS. The pool is closed for re-furbishing, reopen date still TBD. Guests from Intercontinental can use the pool facilities across the street at the Marriott. We didn't.
