    Nice place
    The staff at this hotel are spot on. They really know customer service. Also, we really enjoyed the jazz lounge on the upper floor. Also enjoyed the view of Lake Michigan from the pool on the 23rd floor. Our bed had a down-like mattress topper that was way too soft and so it made it hard to sleep. I like a firmer mattress. Lastly, the hotel is doing a good job to stay clean during covid.

    Idyllic Couples get away
    Suite was comfortable, we had a spa day, ate at the cafe and had dinner at the Mason Grill. All was excellent. It was a couples getaway in an idyllic setting. Super clean and very responsive. Never had to leave the facilities for anything during our weekend.
