A beautiful view of the lake and the dog park. Upon leaving some of my items in a drawer the help given to return these items to me by John G. was above all expectations. Thank you.

Perfect Mini Holiday

Pros: The room was large, clean and very comfortable. had a great view of the lake and Navy Pier.
Cons: The bathroom had a bit of wasted space. Either have a larger tub, or a larger shower, not both - which are relatively below average.
Location: The major road outside may be unsightly to some, but once inside it really doesn't matter at all.
The check in process was flawless and pleasant. The Receptionist was funny and welcomed us to the hotel with a lot of great tips. The room was much better than I could have expected - given there were no pictures of the type of room I was booking (pinnacle room) anywhere, on ANY website. It was a gamble and it paid off. The room had an amazing view of Navy Pier and Lake Michigan. I will say that I'm glad I chose the lake view room as I'm sure the City View would be blocked by buildings and the River view wouldn't see much past the bend in the river. I will also say to be aware of where your room is located if you're looking for a view as the building is triangular in shape so could be limited. If view is not a concern then don't worry about it, the rooms are amazing.

Admirable policy but implementation needs work

Pros: Location and general atmosphere.
Cons: The staff need to service all rooms unless the occupants have specifically advised otherwise,
Location: Great location for cultural interests and shopping. The cultural centre, art gallery and Millennium Park all close by. Access to river walk.
Good hotel but the policy of the hotel to encourage less use of resources was somewhat confusing. Not sure if the room was going to be serviced and clean towels provided on any particular day. I did not opt to get the daily credit at the bar/restaurant, however sometimes the room did not appear to be serviced at all.
