    Best hotel in River North period. Location, rooms, service. Literally a block away from Nordstrom, Joe's Steaks and easy walk to all the hip joints on Kinzie. Plus the 17th floor pool and view.

    If you call the internet support listed on the phone they will open up their network and allow you to use your Apple TV. You just have to give them your device's MAC address. Netflix in the room.

    The rooftop terrace is a solid place to impress a new friend (no, not the Bachelor’s weird high school buddy) but keep in mind it shuts down at 10pm and is seasonal. Read more

    Great hotel. Best service I have ever received. Nothing but smiles and class. Very reasonable prices to boot. Will return.

    Great rooms, terrace and pool. Beware that most rooms on the penthouse floor are connecting rooms so you better hope your neighbors aren't 40 dudes playing poker.

    Ask for a room on the top floors and away from the loud noise of State street. Views aren't as good but you'll sleep better.

    The valet is a bit confusing... The driveway looks like you have to drive up onto a small sidewalk. They also can't recommend any other close garages
