  • Luxury in Chicago

    It was our family’s first time staying here and we were really impressed with the decor and cleanliness. Andrew checked us in and was very courteous and professional. Andrew acknowledged our Ambassador status and upgraded us to a suite on the 17th, which provided some beautiful views of the Magnificent Mile. The room is stunning and very large for a place in Chicago as rooms usually run small. This hotel really cares about all the details and have taken Covid 19 precautions by sanitizing all touch points in the room. Location is great, two blocks from Chicago River and you literally have tons of restaurant options within a three block perimeter. Trust me, you cannot go wrong.

  • Terrific Venue for Business Event

    “I’ve stayed for business and pleasure and am never disappointed. Greatly appreciated Vasso’s attention to detail in setting up and overseeing our meeting for this trip. Gorgeous conference room with city view and amenities. She ensured that our set up and needs were attended to. Hard to stand out among the friendly, professional and helpful staff - but she did. And the hotel is absolutely beautiful, clean and impressive. We also enjoyed Upstairs for breakfasts and the terrace for cocktails. (Thank you, Meredith.) Delightful, delicious and while COVID compliant, so comfortable with fire pits, sofas, blankets and music. Made me feel almost normal again. I’ll be back soon. Next time for fun!”
