My stay was great
cynthia, us3 night business trip
Exceptional 10,0
The location of this property was perfect for my trip. It is a 20 min (or less) walk to the Mag Mile, so many restaurants within walking distance and the view was great. The room was small but it was just me so that wasn't a problem at all. The staff was very helpful and kind other than the valet workers watched me struggle getting in the door with my suitcase when i arrived with no offer to assist with the door. I realize because I wasn't driving a car it wasn't their job to help me but as a representative of the hotel it would have been nice. The water filling station was a wonderful asset to the hotel as well! I would definitely stay here again!

All good - this is actually the same hotel as the Wacker Club Quarters. Exactly as described - staff were helpful and provided good directions to late night pup and breakfast spot. For the price paid - everything was spot on.

Good 6,0
Beautiful views small room
The outside was beautiful. We were on the 38th floor. When we stepped off the elevator we were greeted by a small hallway and doors. The room was tiny. The make shift repairs were obvious. The bed was unstable and small. We were only there for one night, but will not visit again.

10/10 would NOT recommend
There was blood on the wall and in the bathroom, the key sometimes worked with the door, the workout equipment was broken (treadmill) or there were missing pairs to the weights.
