Great hotel
It was great! I stayed here b/c my apartment flooded. It was such a nice way to relax a bit and get away from the stress. As a Chicagoan, I wish there were more restaurants in the area that had better price points, but with the area being geared toward tourists, I knew what I’d have access to. I’d totally do a starvation there in the future if I had the extra money to spend

An architectural marvel with a slammin' Gym.
It's a great property. Being on the bottom of a remarkably beautiful architectural marvel that's a residential condo helps, of course. Good food, good bar, friendly, expert bar staff. The workout facilities were amazing. First time I've ever been to a hotel with a gym that included half court basketball! I will definitely go back and I've lived in Chicago for 30+ years so I have a fairly good idea of what's available in terms of hotels in the areas I frequent.
