    It is a fabulous location in the heart of the City. Near many historic sites, shopping, and easy walking.

    Beautiful architecture and great location at an affordable rate. The Michael Jordan restaurant within premises and ENO next door are a must.

    Fantastic location in the center of Chicago. Very beautiful building (especially inside), Starbucks inside

    Well used t o having internet that I don't have to pay for. They are trying to charge me for an extra night I did not book. Rooms are average. Smallest TV I have seen in years. Rate them one star.

    Beautiful hotel that isn't quite as expensive as you'd imagine a hotel in the middle of the Magnificent Mile to be.

    Great location. Floors 39+ need two separate elevators which can be annoying. On 39 there are red lights that surround the rooms, and the view are partially obstructed by the stone walls.

    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?

    Pool is beautiful. We stayed in the main building. At the time the room was in need of minor maintenance-peeling wallpaper, peeling and molding caulking in the bathroom. Glad we used points...
