We loved this hotel. It was conveniently located in the River North area, within walking distance to the many of the local attractions. The staff was friendly, and we even had a staff member (Anthony) send up a bottle of wine for our anniversary. The hotel includes a 1 hour free wine tasting in the lobby area, and even include...

We stayed with our two young children in early May, and this hotel suited us perfectly in every way. It was conveniently located to walk a few blocks to pick up busses on Michigan Ave and situated near the Grand/State station for the red line. Terrific neighborhood for restaurants, and we picked up provisions from a nearby Osco as well....

This is a quaint, very modern boutique hotel. The rooms are small (like NYC), but I'm from Texas where everything is bigger! It was a great location, downtown close to the pier and the magnificent mile. I would stay there again. Nice staff!

Stayed here for one night on business. Rooms are good size. TV didn't seem to get CNN HLN which I didn't like. Great restaurants nearby. Staff very accommodating. Price reasonable in an expensive city.
