    Awesome hotel. Buying gold Ambassador status is a no brainer. Historic tower has better rooms and the staff are great. Parking is pricy though so go down the block to save $20+ per night.

    Landed in a blizzard, spent 2 hrs on runway at O'hare. 10 min after stepping off plane was traveling to hotel with professional driver from Echo Limousine, $60 for 3 people seems very reasonable!

    Will not be staying here again. 18$ for Internet, $60 to send and receive one fax, their iron destroyed my pants and they refused to help in any way. Dish TV service was unreliable. Shameful. F.

    The pool is not the same as the "famous pool from that one old movie!" I was admiring and asked the hotel manager who let me down nicely: "Yeah, everyone thinks that, but this pool wasn't in it."

    $17.95/day for 1g wifi is ridiculous. To slap you again after "accepting" the wifi charge, the login page immediately takes you to their Facebook page to "like" the hotel. Seriously?

    If you're planning on swimming, call ahead to make sure the pool is open. Otherwise you have to haul the family across the street to swim.
