Pros: Hotel is very convenient for the financial district. Staff are knowledgeable and courteous. The restaurant is very good with quality food and a very good breakfast.
Cons: Being someone who needs to be at the office as early as possible then I would prefer to have the breakfast restaurant open from 6.30 am.

Pros: The staff were really helpful and welcoming when we arrived and in my emergency of carelessly losing my handbag in a taxi at the end of my stay, they could not have been more concerned and helpful. The honesty of a yellow cab driver saved my holiday because he handed the bag in to Amtrak police, on discovering it. The generosity and concern of the cab driver in the lime green car, who took me back to the hotel and then on to the station again, refused to take money for the return trip. Both had been migrants to the US. The room was very spacious and looked out on to Printers Row and the Library building. The Pot Belly Sandwich cafe was next door and did excellent oatmeal for breakfast. The sandwiches looked amazing too. The hotel is in an excellent position for the Buckingham Fountain, Grant and Milennium parks, Lakeside Trail, Willis (Sears) Tower etc. This seemed a very safe part of town. The Skydeck Ledge in Willis Tower is scary but brilliant. Very informative exhibition and video too, worth the $23.00. The people of Chicago were amazing!
Cons: The map of downtown Chicago given by the hotel was so inadequate! Not really helpful. The city should put up tourist signs on the streets to help visitors find their way around to the attractions, buildings. The only signage appears to be around the Lakeside Trail. We had to ask people where the Willis Tower was.
