“Typical Kimpton . . . excellent.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2012

Ok, so it's a Kimpton. If you travel on a regular basis and stay at Kimptons, you'll know what I'm talking about. It is pure and simple a great hotel. Kudos to Jean Luc and Robbie at the front desk for being so helpful. Stay here, it's so convenient to everything. Looking for local nightlife, try TheWit rooftop and Public House, both only blocks away.

Everything was great. Clean, close to everything you could want in Downtown Chicago. Staff more than willing to help you out. Elevators were very slow to arrive at the higher floors.

Conveniently located in Downtown Chicago.
Room was clean albeit bathroom was small
Nice gym
Staff appeared somewhat reserved
Avoid the hotel restaurant breakfast offering was particularly poor and excessively priced. Go a few doors down to Weber Grill - with its most accommodating staff and a wide options.

I travel frequently to Chicago for work and was looking for a new hotel to stay at and booked last minute over the weekend - everything about it was great - front desk staff, modern, large, clean rooms, great views. Nothing disappointed - and so happy with stay that I booked another night that weekend and again later this week for business. Definitely recommend for anyone coming into town.

The location, the staff, the rooms, fitness center, wine reception were all outstanding. I stayed there 2 nights recently, with my wife and 2 teenagers (down the hall). We could not have been happier. The rooms were modern, spacious and sleek. The beds were very comfortable. Best of all, I left a pair of pants at the hotel, the staff kept them and happily sent them to me, with just easy email communication. A pleasure to visit and will definitely return.
