                              • The location is perfect, rooms are very quiet, food is very good, and the spa is wonderful, this hotel is absolutely gorgeous. First of all, the staff are superb and the bath tub is great for soaking after walking.

                                Not excellent service.

                              • Excellent location, best in Chicago and the lobby is well organized. The staff is courteous and do not need to be tipped, the concierge team could also be a bit better informed. The rooms are lovely and super cozy bar for a late night cocktail and the spa is beautiful.

                                Maybe the worst food ever in a luxury hotel, the pullout bed very ordinary, and uncomfortable, i mean breakfast delivered in 10 minutes quick.

                              • Balcony view was nice and the spa was by far the best I have been to in any 5 star hotel in Chicago. The staff were great and the bathroom was spectacular.

                                The lobby is awkward.

                                Less than 10 minutes to the closest l stop, your suites should not have stained carpets.

                                The hotel did not live up to expectations and once inside , the lobby felt cold and cramped to me.
