We clicked blindly on a 4 star hotel on Hotwire and ended up getting the Allerton at a very inexpensive rate (under $150). My wife had read many disappointing reviews and was weary of what was to come. We're now one week into our vacation and are LOVING it. We got a very nice room with a view of Michigan Ave. We got one of two rooms between the elevators and are loving the size -(no problems at all with noise, can't hear the elevators). The front desk asst. manager Joe Barren was super. We checked in late and he made sure we got everything taken care of. Wouldn't accept a tip for our gratitude, said it was just his job. (He'll go far).
This hotel is located in the middle of so many things. So close to river tours, parks, shops, restaurants, Museums, transportation, etc.
The staff in the hotel has been very polite and helpful. Very pleasant.
I did run into a couple on the elevator that thought their room and bed was way too small so I believe this supports some of the complaints about small rooms. Best to ask at checkin. Also, bring a large insulated coffee mug/thermos to get your coffee on the 2nd floor in the morning and bring back a few cups back up to your room along with a cup of Half & Half and sugar. Coffee pots not available in the room or front desk and cups are tiny.
Went to a free Liquor and food pairing tasting in the 2nd floor bar one evening. I guess they do it once a week. Wasn't much, but who does that at all anymore? That bar seemed to be filled every night.
We will come back here and even pay more knowing what a value this has been.
