      • Great area of town and beautiful Hotel. The building is just breathtaking and the staff really couldn't be nicer and more eager to help. Etc. the bedding is luxurious, breakfast is good and fresh fruit available for the end of your workout.

        Not the best location, the restaurants within walking distance were somewhat limited.

      • The location is superb, great Hotel Convenient to Michgan Avenue and Taste of Chicago, this historic building is absolutely beautiful. The price is reasonable and the music in the lobby is techno modern. The staff here is excellent and room is good. Free weights mats and exercise balls, for a leisurely breakfast, try Yolk just south a few blocks.

        One king sized pillow in a dirty standard pillowcase.
