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!

2 nights on business
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.

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.

Fair 4,0
Would never stay again
The room looks NOTHING like the pictures. It was an extremely small room for two people and barely enough space to maneuver around the bed. The room was not clean and made you not want to even sleep on the linen. We called to get our money to book somewhere else and that was unsuccessful. Spend a few extra dollars And get a nicer place.

Don't purchase this hotel thru a 3rd party vendor
My room was purchased through hotels.com and the room itself was horrible. To the point where I needed to upgrade to get a better room for a more comfortable stay. My suggestion is if the terrible rooms are going to be used for customers who purchase through 3rd party vendors, that you remove yourself from these websites to avoid an overall bad experience at your hotel. I use hotels.com and hotwire for all of my hotel needs and not once have I been given a bad room because it was purchased through a third party vendor. This was a first and I'll keep that in mind should this hotel show up in future searches through a third party vendor. After the upgrade the room was better and the stay was more comfortable but I shouldn't have to upgrade because I didn't purchase directly through the hotel.
