Convenient Location
The hotel is located in the centre of Chicago with easy access to sightseeing spots. The service and facilities are okay. However, the view of Michigan Lake from the room is a pleasant surprise. Not sure if it applies to all room though.

Fantastic location, situated on the edge of the city, yet also within easy walking distance of the lake shore. Very polite and efficient staff who were always willing to help. Room facilities were very good and the room itself was very clean and well designed. Very recommendable accommodation.

The staff was friendly and helpful to change my room to a very good view room. I did enjoyed my stay
The hotel is in a very good location which is close to Shedd Aquarium, Willis Tower, Field Museum and Chicago Institute of Art. The staff helped me to change my room to a very good view room in which I can enjoyed fireworks at navy pier. I enjoyed my stay in this hotel.

What a pleasant surprise
This hotel that opened for the Chicago World's fair in 1893 sits in the heart of Chicago's downtown (the Loop), with beautiful views of Lake Michigan, Grant and Millennium Parks, and the Buckingham fountain that is right across the street. Given the prime location, you would think it would long ago have been replaced by a post-modern resort that would cost several times as much. Instead this capacious hotel still sits in a much more appealing location than the more famous Palmer House, and seems to get by filling rooms with deals like the one I found on Agoda. Sure, our room didn't face the Lake, but we could still see it through the bay window that all rooms seem to have. The room itself was clean and well appointed. I would have preferred two queen beds to the two fulls that the room included, but the mattresses were comfortable and the bathroom was surprisingly spacious for a room in a large metro downtown. The staff was uniformly cheerful, pleasant, helpful and patient. The TV allowed us to stream a movie from a laptop through an HDMI cable that I always carry for that purpose. (This is not a given.) The hotel is huge but didn't feel close to full. For example, elevators always arrived promptly, the lobby always seemed to have room when we needed it. One thing we enjoyed (though others might not): The clientele of the hotel felt rich and varied; this is not a tony preserve of the elite. Negatives: The room smelled a little musty till housekeeping (quickly and politely) replaced the filter in the air conditioner. One day the chambermaid took our towels and didn't replace them. I had to call housekeeping twice before replacements were quickly and apologetically brought to the room. The carpet in the room feels too cushy; I had to lift my feet a bit further off the ground than I am used to in order to avoid catching my sole on the carpet. None of these really bothered us. (OK, the second phone call to housekeeping did annoy me.) For rooms this nice in a location th
