Clean, fashionable, good location for me, provided coffee maker for room when I asked, but what is with 3 of the 5 pods being decaf?
Lack of conveniently placed AC plugs to plug in while sitting on the bed. In checking out, when I asked for a restroom, I was directed down one floor! Elevator too busy + not clear how to get there on stairs = big lose! Good thing I asked about coffee, they said they would TRY to get one brought to room. It arrived fortunately but I don't think I should have to ask! Coffee not readily accessible and available on a fly-in business trip is a non-starter. Some of my favorite hotels have high quality complementary coffee flowing abundantly in the lobby.
Great for all the sights
Great staff and rooms were clean and comfortable. Great location.
Wish I hadn't stayed here
Horrible service, horrible housekeeping - where old cutlery and dishes are left lying around and you need to call in to get fresh glasses. I had to personally go downstairs to the front desk and get a fresh set myself after waiting for 90 minutes for room service and/ or housekeeping to bring me fresh utensils and cups. The first night the ice machine was out. The shampoo and shower gel weren't replinished and had to call housekeeping to bring us more so we could shower. After being charged 18% gratuity and $4 in service charge, the room service staff got rude when they werent offered more tip! The whole hotel seems to be in a chaos And the staff, facilities, rooms and state of the hotel in general is absolutely pathetic. This hotel gave me lesson on why it's better to stick with the hoteliers like the Marriots and Hiltons of the world. I highly recommend everyone to steer clear of this hotel. Pay a bit extra and live in a hotel not a motel trying to pass itself off as a 4/5 star.
All the staff were pleasant, the room was always restored to its original status upon return of my daily travels. The hotel room was cleaner than my last visit which pleased me. I will stay there again. I am planning future trips/stays.
Cool hotel, love this area of Chicago
No phone charges available Heater making noise throughout the night, had to choose between being cold or awaken by noise Heat was off when I arrived, "engineer" had to come up to turn it on (shouldn't it be obvious where and how to control the temperature?) Heater was on the ground behind a desk, I had to get under the desk to adjust the temp each time
