Marne, us1 night trip
Very good 8,0
The hotel was very nice and the beds were very comfortable. The only bad thing was the valet service was extremely slow. It took us 2 hours to get our car because it was a busy weekend and they were short staffed.

Need Curtain Instructions!
There were shear curtains that I was able to close, but never figured out how to close the heavier curtains for privacy from the buildings across the street. Plus it was disturbing to see the TRUMP sign in my face the whole time. Not a fan.

Valentine's Day Surprise
I reserved the Royal Sonesta in Chicago in the last minute on Valentines Day, and I am glad I chose this hotel, because it was centrally located, walking distance to Morton's Steakhouse, and plenty of lounges. The view of the Riverfront was spectacular, and the room was huge with a sofa. The bed was comfortable and the room very clean, with a small refrigerator and Keurig machine, which was a nice touch.
