This was a tough day for a number of reasons. An appointment I thought I made didn't get made, but my wife's did, so we were going, hoping we could get in. Our first ParkWhiz was at a nightmare location - people with no uniforms insisted they needed to park my car - NOT. So, we abandoned that and went to another garage (which turned out to be much better, and $10 cheaper). At this point, I was in a not so good mood. We went to check in, and in a bright spot for the day, they upgraded us to a corner room. (Which you should try to get). Some things: Walking down the hall, we could hear people clearly in their rooms. However, we couldn't hear them in our room. Good! Our room was on the corner of LaSalle and Dearborn, which isn't a really quiet intersection. However, the hotel offers in each room, earplugs in case it's too loud for you to sleep. Good! The room was very comfortable. The bed was outstanding - soft yet firm and comfortable. The service at the desk was efficient, polite, and helpful. For a one night stay, we had a great time. I even discussed something in the room on the phone - very comfortable. We parked off property. They had valet parking for $58.

Great staff with a good location in a nice easygoing part of the city. It was very easy to maneuver around the city from this location. Free coffee, apple cider, tea was a nice touch for a city hotel. Free parking in front of hotel on street after 10pm was also a treat for a big city!
