              The staff was exceptional. All were very friendly but not in a "forced way". We will stay at the Knockerbocker next time we go to Chicago.

              Room was a little warm. We had to open the window even though the temps were dipping into the 40's during the night - plus side to this...thank goodness the windows opened!

              The location is close to many major attractions in Chicago. 15-20 minute walk to Navy Pier, and Buckingham Fountain, as well as great restaurants. Staff is very friendly and helpful. They had overbooked the type of room we had reserved but upgraded us to a suite. Great breakfast restaurant.

              Lack of amenities. This hotel is more of a business hotel, not fun/family hotel.

              The staff, from beginning to end, was extremely helpful and pleasant. The concierge was extremely helpful. The room, while on the small side, was very nice and the bed very comfortable. A small thing, but we really appreciated having a light in the closet.

              The air conditioning, going on and off every five minutes (or whatever the time increment was), made it very difficult for a light sleeper such as myself, to get to sleep and stay asleep.
