      Erin salins was partiacularly helpful on the phone booking the room. Very professional.

      They were extremely accomodating. We had some deep dish pizza that we wanted to eat later but had no refridgerator originally in the room. When we called asking if there was any way we could store the pizza they said they would bring the fridge right up. Within two minutes the fridge was delivered and I even offered a tip for bringing it up but the worker refused.

      The only downside we noticed was whenever the toilet flushed there seemed to be water seeping out from there, which got very annoying and hindering after a while. We had to use our towels around the toilet to keep it from seeping everywhere. Parking was costly - 150 bucks for 3 days and the car just sat there, that's 21% of the hotel costs in parking alone - ridiculous.

      We stayed at the Sax Chicago for the marathon. It was a perfect location. The entire staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was very comfortable. The restaurant - Bin 36 - has a pleasing menu and waitstaff. In all our group had 3 rooms at this hotel and we would all recommend it & stay here again.

      This is not a complaint, but we would have enjoyed a pool or jacuzzi/sauna.

      The staff was amazing. They remembered us every time they saw us. They were very friendly. They made us feel welcomed.

      I did not like that house keeping entered our room without consent while we were out on our second day.
