Modern hotel
Amazing modern hotel nice gym and pool free coffee in the mornings opposite navy pier 10 minutes walk from michigan oh and the rooms are big
imraan, za6 night family trip
W Chicago - Lakeshore
The beds were extremely uncomfortable. Even my two daughters woke up with back discomfort. Came back from a long day to find that room service had not come by to clean room and make beds. Not a family friendly hotel. Was not impressed based on the price point especially when compared to other hotels in the area.

Pleasant stay
Overall our stay Wes very positive. I wasn’t too thrilled about making our reservation for a room with two beds and a rollaway, and then be told once we arrived that we would have to pay more money to upgrade to a bigger room if we still wanted the rollaway. Other than that everything was very good.
