Editorial review:

This place is great for those on business, there aren't many crowds as it's far from shopping areas, and there's access to the El line so you can go straight to and from O'Hare Airport. The rooms are beautiful and feature large work desks. The bathrooms have wood and classy marble throughout, and there are nice skyline views from some of them.
