    Floors 24-28 are all suits...if you're platinum definitely request any one of these floors...2nd best are the corner rooms! And don't forget the free Acura service!

    Ask for a corner room. Bartender Harley at The Living Room is awesome. the room mini bar is a bright pink, steel drum and is stocked to the brim (spirits, beer, soda, snacks, condoms and lube)

    Prohibition... Afton is the best server hands down! :)

    Park in the Midwest Building ramp across the street. So much cheaper. Don't do valet.

    Brandi · October 20, 2009
  • Jacob M.

    Skip the hotel restaurants/bars. Hit up Hell's Kitchen, just down the street, for breakfast. Grab some local beers and a sandwich at The Local for lunch. Then close the night at Bar La Grassa.

    Jacob M. · October 12, 2013
  • Jake S.

    You get free admission to the Foshay Tower Museum and Observation Deck if you are staying at the hotel.

    Evil Tip: when making a reservation request a handicap accessible room. They cost the same, but are about twice as big. :)

    Roy W. · January 27, 2013

    The lobby bar is crazy on Friday and Saturday nights! Live DJ, dance music, and wall-to-wall people... we had great time there at a wedding after after party!

    Overpriced but the original mojito is delicious. It's topped off with champagne!

    Natalie O. · November 6, 2011
  • Robin R.

    Check out the upstairs bar "Prohabition".....great views of the city!

    Robin R. · September 13, 2011

  • Marky M.

    Order their Mojito! Amazing!

    Marky M. · August 8, 2010
  • Mike B.

    Avoid the in-room mini bar. That $36 bottle of Maker's Mark can be had a block down at the liquor store for $16.

    Mike B. · September 16, 2013

  • Mike B.

    This is the "Living Room" in the lobby. Great place to hang out and throw back a few cold ones.

    Mike B. · September 16, 2013
  • Mike B.

    Here's a standard king room.

    Mike B. · September 16, 2013
  • Mike B.

    Be careful about the parking meters around the hotel. Sometimes they work and sometimes they don't. If they don't, call 311 and don't just assume you'll be okay. This guy got a ticket.

    Mike B. · September 16, 2013
  • Mike B.

    The 30th floor observation deck is awesome. Check it out. It's open until 6pm every day, but open late until 9pm on Thursdays if you want to catch a sunset view.

    Mike B. · September 16, 2013
  • Katie C.

    Phil is the best bartender!

    Katie C. · September 14, 2013
  • Sandy

    Request a room on the bottom floors. The rooms on the upper floors are significantly smaller.

    Sandy · September 3, 2013
  • Steve G.

    The water pressure is higher in Sub-Saharan Africa. Leave time for a long shower.

    Steve G. · September 1, 2013
  • Kandayce G.

    Excellent customer service! Everyone so friendly and serves your every need! Worth the price!

    Kandayce G. · August 25, 2013
  • Jerry D.

    This place is way too dark! It's cool at first, but gets old and impossible to deal with after the first 15 minutes

    Jerry D. · August 4, 2013
  • Kelsey G.

    Whatever whenever

    Kelsey G. · August 13, 2012
  • John S.

    Impressive and helpful staff--they mean it whenever and wherever!

    John S. · June 1, 2012
  • Bill C.

    Don't expect an upgrade, even if you have top tier status. They try to sell them.

    Bill C. · February 21, 2012
  • Lindsay C.

    Daily happy hours at both The Living Room bar and Key's Cafe

    Lindsay C. · December 15, 2011

  • Jen J.

    Used to be a fun scene - then went on my bday - chick barfing in the ashtray in the entrance and too-crowded bar with some not nice women

    Jen J. · August 19, 2011
