AAA Inspector Rating
AAA Inspector 40: Impressive to me is that each room has voice activated, hands-free speakers that respond to your questions or play music with perfect stereo quality.
The guest rooms here feature smooth and luxurious linen bedding, high-tech, smart technology TVs and stylish bathrooms with large rain-effect shower heads. Guest rooms range in size from petite to large. Colorfully painted original art is featured throughout the hotel. One interesting element of the hotel is that a voice-command- virtual-assistant speaker is located in each room that will answer questions for you about the hotel.
AAA Inspector 40: A proud reminder to me that AAA was founded in Chicago in 1902, this historic building was once home to the Chicago Motor Club.
This stylish hotel occupies a classic 1928 building that was once home to the AAA Chicago Motor Club headquarters. Every guest room features plush-top mattresses and elegant upholstered headboards. A classic Model T Ford is on display in the lobby of the hotel.

AAA Inspector Rating
AAA Inspector 40: I prefer to stay here on my trips to Chicago as they have some of the largest, contemporary suites in the downtown area.
Guest rooms feature a separate seating area with a pull-out sofa and bathrooms with an oversize shower stall and rain shower head. The updated lobby is bright, open and inviting. A stretch room off the pool area provides additional fitness opportunities. First-class boutiques and restaurants surround the property.
AAA Inspector 40: Getting ready is a treat in the nifty dressing areas with a vanity, stool and makeup mirror. Oh and I love the pink and gold pens too!
Situated in a building designed by architect Mies van der Rohe, this hotel offers palatial common areas. Rooms have lavish beds with superb linens, 55-inch flat-panel HDTVs and oversize desks. Guest bathrooms feature luxurious granite, marble and travertine accents as well as an elegant rainfall shower and a separate soaking tub.
AAA Inspector 40: From its unique, wavy architecture and exquisite art-filled lobby to the classy Italian eatery and stylish bar, there's much to love about this place.
This hotel presents a distinctive, world-class exterior design. Many rooms have balconies, and all have fluffy robes, the highest quality bedding and stunning city or lake views. A mini basketball court and running track are offered by the hotel along with a huge outdoor deck that has both a "kiddie" and regular pool.
