Really big with a nice view and clean rooms. There is only one exit and entrance. You need to get onto 3 different elevators to go from your room. To the lobby. The lobby to the entrance of the building. The entrance of the building to the parking garage. You need at least 30-45 minutes to just go from your room to the garage. There were lines for everything! The breakfast, the complimentary reception, and elevators. That was my biggest complaint!

We exited our taxi to check in to this stunning, modern property for a 3 night stay. We are here in Chicago to celebrate the marriage of my dear Godchild/niece. Location couldn’t be better. Right in the Miracle Mike and within walking distance to many stores and restaurants. It was a busy Friday afternoon and there was a line to get checked in and assigned a room. The two young ladies were joined by a third and worked diligently to provide quality customer service to everyone. A family member had recommended this property and made several room reservations months ago. There was a large lobby and a large bar cordoned off at that time but more about that later. Our room was on the 10th floor. It was spotless. A pleasant living area with plenty of seating and a small dining/desk area . There was also a big flat screen TV. The bathroom -again spotless with large dispensers fit body wash, shampoo & conditioner within the tub/shower area. Vanity and sink with hand soap dispenser and body lotion dispenser. Large vanity and of course a commode. Across from the bathroom was a coffee/tea bar and dorm size refrigerator. Plenty of coffee, tea creamers, cups etc. stocked it. The sleeping area had a separate door, a king bed and large picture window. City view with a tiny exposed portion of both Lake Michigan and the Chicago River. There is a huge celebration downtown in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month and we arrived back to our room last night in time for a fireworks display! Bed was comfortable with quality linens. I’ve never experienced such a large eating area and the breakfast offered could not have been better. Service with a “Good Morning “ and a smile. Cooked to order omelets and any other style egg your heart desires. Bacon, Potatoes- huge bar of fruits, a juice , coffee & milk area, Dozens of bakery items, pancakes, oatmeal (my choice and old fashioned oats cooked to perfection), cold cereal, toast, breads, bagels. No doubt the most extraordinary free breakfast option EVER! Now then-we also can partake in a free “happy hour “ with light snacks, beer, soda and wine which we will check out Sunday evening. I won’t consider staying anywhere else!
