10.0 Wonderful
Cons:Elevators require key each time to go up stairs
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:ALL staff that we incountered from valet to bellman house keeping and front desk were all very friendly and helpful. Having worked in the hotel industry it was easy to spot a top notch beautiful hotel with an amazing staff.
Cons:Toilet was loose or unattached to the bathroom floor but still functioned properly.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Great location, nice room, beautiful bathroom, comfortable beds, steps from the orange line, State St. and Michigan Ave., Theatres, and museums. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. Great rice view. Libby music was a bit loud, but the younger crow probably would think that was great!
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:We stayed here with our two older children (age 16 & 20) over July 4 weekend; an incredibly busy weekend for the city but this was an oasis of luxury. Recently renovated, hotel features a beautiful artistic lobby, excellent coffee/sandwich bar in lobby, lounging areas with couches, restaurant, bar. Rooms are deluxe, very comfortable beds, modern bathrooms, with gorgeous views of the city and nearby Chicago river.
5.1 Fair
Pros:Location, bedding, room decor.
Cons:Wasn't notified of renovations by kayak nor Marriott, when I told the front desk this, I was told I should do my own research to make sure hotel isn't being renovated. Then the workers started a half hour earlier than I was told on Sunday morning, and when I called the front desk, nothing was done about it. They were constantly drilling directly above our room. I was given the wrong room and wasn't offered a switch when the correct room became available, and I left an item there after checking out and called two hours later and the item had gone missing from the room. When I called the customer care line, the hotel called back to apologize and did not offer anything to rectify the situation. Terrible stay, will not be booking there ever again.
6.5 Okay
Pros:Great staff, good location. Restaurant is wonderful.
Cons:Small room, older hotel/rooms, bed not so comfortable, no in room eats other than water/coffee. Definitely over priced.
