  • Family with children
    7.8

    The suites are nice for families since there is a lounging area separate from the bedroom. Having the extra sink with mirror was also helpful.

    Not the hotels fault but was awakened by yelling/banging kids next door. Rooms are somewhat expensive.

    The comprehensive breakfast selection, as well as the extra space granted by the extra room in the suite. The location was also very good, on numerous bus routes and a short walk to the Red El line.

    The Breakfast was great! Comfortable beds...the managers reception was awesome deal!

    There was not a fan in bathrooms....caused mirros to fog up while I was getting ready and spouse was showering. Swimming pool was small...the area was small and slippery. Slipped a couple times walking carefully. Sofa bed was very uncomfortable. Parking was very expensive.

    Liked the atmosphere of the room. The continental breakfast was great! Valet Parking

    I booked the reservation in part because of the free happy hour and the continental breakfast. Although the breakfast was excellent I thought the happy hour appetizers were pitiful. Who serves seeds and raisins and calls them appetizers? Very disappointed! Ended up ordering appetizers from the hotel at a cost of $50.00. Maybe that was their plan.

    That breakfast was included and location.

    Could hear a lot of noise from the street. Also, the room walls seem paper thin I was up till 3 in the morning from noise from the next room. I knpw traveling can be hit or miss on a good night sleep but with two kids I need to make sure I get sleep. Because of that it was a bad experience. I have reservation for over July 4th and I'm not sure if I want to keep them.

    Nice location in the city center. The rooms are large and welle equiped.

    The hotel is very big, and if you wake up later than 7am, you have very long queues to get a table for breakfast. To wake up so early is ok if you go there for work, not really if you go there for pleasure. The pool is very small for such a big hotel. Here again, it is best enjoyed before 7am.

    We wanted to be close to Navy Pier and we were!! The suite was clean and functional and quiet once the door was shut.

    The hotel is massive--I had no idea. And if you have a fear of heights (as I do) it is not for you: the suites open onto a huge atrium space. Check- in was easy and there was no check-out. In fact, I was told that if I needed a receipt that I needed to get it through Booked.net (I found that odd). There is no personal service, yet they do manage to serve breakfast and a cocktail or wine to the hordes quite efficiently.

    Loved the convenience to attractions and activities downtown, and really enjoyed the cooked-to-order omelets in the morning. Watching the chef was great!

    I didn't care for the decor/style of the room floors; looking out from the hallway it reminded me of a prison or a housing project. While I enjoyed the stay, the room, and the service, none of it was worth the price I paid. Way too expensive.

    The room was incredibly nice. Much better than what I thought we would get for the price we paid. Great view of the city and nothing beats a complimentary all you can eat breakfast!

    They somehow lost our reservation which we had done online but within a half hour of waiting they accomodated us with a very nice room. I was pleasantly suprised by how clean and nice the hotel was.

    The Location, The front desk service, The room layout, two TV s....

    The computer center was a joke (old systems...could not get into sites such as FaceBook etc.)......WIFI in Hotel should be free....the breakfast situation should be looked into....too long of lines to get "average" breakfast.....

    fantastic big rooms with superb living room area extras you don't find in even 5 star hotels i.e. free drink in the evening and made to order breakfast.

    They should offer free wifi in the hotel. I can't understand why they don't do this. If they had this it would make this hotel unbeatable.
