roomy and spacious
The room was very nice and roomy, it was my husband and I and our 2 teenagers and having a separate room and 2 bathrooms was WONDERFUL...only downfall that I had was there seemed to be no trash can and I think this may be because of covid? There were small cans in each bath, but nothing by the kitchenette, but really it was no big deal,

Great service, clean hotel!
Immediately upon entering the hotel I was greeted by friendly staff who took my temperature and were very helpful in answering my questions, and even allowed me to check in 2 hours early! I felt very safe knowing they take proper measures to ensure everyone was healthy upon entering their hotel

Great stay!
This hotel is in a great location but the parking is bad. It’s pretty hard to park in the whole city of Chicago without paying $50 . Just pay for the valet or do not bring a car to Chicago it’s not necessary. The hotel itself was safe and clean. I traveled alone and felt safe when leaving and entering my hotel. I absolutely LOVE that they have free filtered water stands to fill your water bottle, etc on every floor of the hotel. Your temperature is checked at the door before checking into the hotel for COVID reasons. Check in and out was a breeze the employees were nice and helpful when I asked questions. Room is very small but clean. I had a view of the Trump towers. For me yuck but maybe for someone else... you can’t miss it, the Trump building is HUGE. Anytime I felt lost in the city I would follow the front of the Trump towers to find my way back. I would recommend this hotel and stay again. Chicago was a BLAST, beautiful, clean, cool city!

great location
Unbeatable location in terms of how close it is to the river. We had easy access to the riverwalk which was great for our long weekend.

Good but no parking.
Everything was good specially the fact that is locatedbybthe river. Didn't like the fact that i had to find my own parking. Probably wont stay with them again. The hotel next door had valet access.

Clean with helpful staff
due to covid and social distancing it was not your typical hotel experience but given where we are, it was about what you would expect. Everything was clean and the staff was very helpful.
