My daughter gave me an early Father's Day gift of spending a couple of days with her in downtown Chicago at the Waldorf Astoria. She booked a suite and paid for everything! From the second I got out of the taxi, I experienced nothing but first class service. I was greeted by the doorman who immediately collected my bag and promptly delivered it to our suite. Every employee encounter was a friendly experince and all of them made a point of asking if there was anything we wanted. The rooms of our suite were well appointed and immaculate. The beds were comfortable and had the softest sheets I ever slept on. Room service, nightly turndown service, etc. were prompt and courteous and no one accepted a tip when offered on multiple occasions. We were consistently told that service was included as part of our stay -- even a complimentary shoeshine! I've stayed at several hotels that may have had comparable accommodations, but this one had the best service I've ever experienced.
