Modern, exquisite hotel by the Lakeshore”

I love the area, it is by the Lakeshore near the Navy Pier. Check in/out was a breeze, bar is near the lobby so drinks are a few away. Spacious rooms, chic design, neat and clean, comfy beds and pillows. I did try the gym and the pool amenities but we had breakfast at the Current restaurant near the lobby. It was good, not too pricey. Michigan Avenue is just 15mins walk to shop and dine. I might be back next time when I visit chi again.

Satisfied”

Hotel has a great atmosphere and wonderful facilities. I booked through a third party and have had difficulties with the information being passed to the hotel correctly in the past so I called the hotel before check in to make sure everything was smooth upon arrival, I am glad I did because there were a couple discrepancies. Hotel staff was patient and helpful and got everything sorted. Check in/out went great and so did our stay. We had a room with 2 double bed. Beds weren't that great, however I am not the best judge cause I have a wonderful king bed at home. I would stay here again for sure.

Trendy hotel in a great location”

Location, comfy bed and pillow

The hotel is very close to navy pier, within a short walking distance. The room was spacious with 2 double beds. The bed sheet was crisp and the pillows were super comfortable. Bliss products in bathroom was bonus. There wasn't complimentary coffee or tea in the room but they delivered on request. It states the room rate was including mini bar but there wasn't any drinks even drinking water in the fridge. Staff wasn't smiley but process of check in/out was very fast. There was some music festival during my stay so the rate was a bit expensive. Overall it was satisfactory.

Everything about this hotel was great. The staff was friendly and rooms were very clean. My only suggestion, is to offer more food on the room service menu that cater to "normal eaters" such as Fries or Burgers. Who wants Hummus at midnight lol...

Nice place, outstanding location”

For me, the location and view of the lake was the best part about the place. I didn't make any use of the facilities. The room was comfortable but standard. The staff was pleasant. The proximity to the lake, Navy Pier, and the other Streeterville/Loop attractions are what made the visit for me. Highly recommend if location is your top priority.
