                Conveniently located near businesses, shopping, restaurants and attractions.

                The location is fantastic and we could walk for coffee, lunch, dinner, shopping and the city view were fantastic. And it's not a chain! We booked a suite and it was fantastic - roomy and clean. The staff was very personable and responded to extra request in a timely manner (extra pillow, towels, microwave) We would come back again. Loved it

                Location and views

                Had booked 2 king and one double queen for 6 adults and 2 children, but was given 3 king rooms which left us short for space. Took a little while, but the staff quickly remedied the problem once I showed them the the paperwork from Booked.net.

                Location central to many Chicago sight and transport.

                I felt the booking of a "city view" only to stare at the ugly rooftops of buildings was misleading.

                Hotel Staff was very friendly. Used Valet Parking for easier access, a bit pricey but comparable to other hotels downtown. Very good location right on the Chicago River, Outstanding very of river and Trump Tower. Room was upgraded at no charge to Suite. Awesome!!! Very Romantic and clean room. Most Def will stay here again

                The location of the hotel was great! Close to everything!

                The room was unbearably hot. The air conditioner wouldn't cool the room off. They need actual thermostats in the rooms. The bathroom needs more lighting.

                Room was spacious, clean view wasn't bad, but that wasn't important to me. Staff was great and more than happy to help with info, directions etc..I Didn't know who was more friendly day tour or the night tour

                I didn't care for the closet being located in the bathroom. Only 1 waste pail which was in the bathroom. Cleaning staff could have been less stingy with the soap and cups. 2Nd chair would be great for T.V.. But other than the closet just minor stuff.

                Great location near public transit, shopping and business venues. The on-site restaurant serves good food at a reasonable price, but there are many other options nearby. The room was large, comfortable, and well kept. Free wi-fi in a downtown hotel in a major city was definitely an unexpected bonus.

                Hardly-noticeable construction (renovation) occurring on some other floors caused minor disruption in elevator service.
