Our stay overall was ok,...
Pros: The room and staff were very nice.
Cons: The Resturant menu selections at the Mason Grill located inside the hotel. I did not like the New Year's Eve celebration. It was not the same as what was listed on the website. I was totally disappointed! Especially with the ball drop at midnight. That was a joke.

Pros: The hotel is incredibly beautiful , rooms were outstanding, view was outstandingly amazing viewing lake michigan and the beautiful city and sky line, blu room a lounge on the 23rd floor was nice city view while enjoying a cocktail, listening to live jazz music , . Masons resturant located in the hotel was outstanding, truly the BEST steak I have ever had. I have visited several upscale resturants, so when I say it was the best I have judged against other outstanding steak restaurants. The cafe located in the hotel was delicious, which I would highly recommend. In the lobby is a lounge with a huge elegant lite fireplace out of the late 1800s along with leather high back antique looking confortable chairs and couches for seating, we were enchantedby the mucians an amazing pianist and a cello musician from the Mileaukee symphony, and the exquisite Chistmas decorations ans beauriful decorated 35 foot Christmas tree all made the evening Magical!!! It was a true blessing. The paintings and antique furiture / items are well placed throught out the hotel it made you feel like you had been transported back in time, some visitors were dressed in the nastagic tuxedo with tails and dresses from the era, it was undescribably awesome!!!! Highly recommended to stay here anytime but especially for the New Years weekend!
Cons: The parking elevators area heating was out on all the floors. When it is subzero temps, it would be very welcoming to have the heaters working, also because of the out of service heaters, the chilled air entered the public elevators even if you were passing the parking floors. The extra 45 per person cost for the 23rd floor snack and buffet breakfast was not at all worth the cost. Disappointed in the buffet meal that was offered not a lot of selection.
