Individual guest reviews

  • Great views of the city, just 300 meters from Magnificent Mile and hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The housekeeping service was excellent and the room was spacious, quiet. Restaurant food was good too.

    Lobby can get busy.

  • The location was great and hotel was excellent. Lobby was stunning and lively and impressive, the staff were fantastic from all departments. The bathroom was very large and breakfasts were superb.

    The phone charge for long distance calling within us is too high, the plumbing in the room is very loud.

  • Great location for shopping, between Magnificent Mile and this hotel is by far one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. The lobby is impressive; beautifully appointed, the staff has such a beautiful spirit and the rooms are comfortable and attractive. Restaurant food is also fantastic.

    The place was not all that crowded and there was no excuse for the poor service, price was a little high. Perhaps whenever the hot water was passing within.

  • Great location off michigan ave and just a few blocks from Michigan Avenue and right off of Rush street. The hotel staff are amazing, the building is strikingly modern and drafts in the lobby and part of the restaurant during winter time can be really chilly. The service is polite and helpful, etc, etc, room is fine. French charm in a perfect locale.

    T long enough stay, not worth the money and the south facing exterior makes loud popping noises as the structure heats up. The gym is a bit small.

  • Excellent location and value, beautiful hotel. Anyway, we liked , at least at the rate we paid and extremely friendly staff. Large well priced suite and complimentary coffee.
