I was a little worried when I booked this hotel. The location seemed prime, so the price concerned me. Luckily, I was pleasantly suprised. The hotel was wonderful!!! We had a one bedroom suite, so we had a lot of space. The bathroom was beautiful and the shower was great. (I hate those scrawney hotel showers). The only draw back was the crowd at breakfast...there are a lot of rooms at the hotel and maybe just not enough space for everyone to eat. But considering it's included, it was OK.

We had a wonderful stay here. Our room on the 16th floor was quiet, clean, and nicely decorated. This was our first trip to Chicago, so we didn't know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised. The location was excellent - we walked almost everywhere we wanted to go, and took the bus that was located close by on Michigan Ave. when we needed to travel a little farther. The staff at the front desk was amazing, and treated us like royalty. The complimentary breakfast was excellent. Having the kitchen in the room was a lifesaver with two small children - we were able to keep cold drinks and healthy snacks on hand at all times. We'll definitely be back!

I've stayed before at the Westin, which is a block away and $$$$ more and will definitely come back here instead. So many more perks. To save money, there's a huge complimentary breakfast, and on Mon & Wed they have ""happy hour"" which serves cheap beer and wine and appetizers as big as a meal. Every room has a contemporary kitchenette so what you can't eat you can save & prepare again in your room. Other reviews may say this is a cheap hotel but I say otherwise. Chicago is already expensive so why not save your $$ by staying here and spend it on shopping! (American Girl is a block away...) My only complaint was the room was on the warm side and toiletries were limited.
Great stay and excellent rooms!!!04/07/2009

My girlfriend and I went to Chicago for New Year's this past year. I chose this hotel due to it's proximity to Michigan Ave and the relative cost. The free breakfast every morning was a nice cost saver too. We reserved a ""studio"" room, but it was huge! Recently renovated, included a fridge/freezer, microwave, stove, dishwasher, flat-screen TV, etc. It was a great deal for the money. Next time I go to Chicago, I'm staying here again! However, if you're looking for a view of Michigan Ave or the lake, you might want to pick a different hotel. But if you're trying to cut costs on your trip and don't mind walking/taking public transportation...this is your place.

The room was clean and comfortable and nicely furnished. I really enjoyed the nice, large shower. The hotel's location is perfect -- just a few blocks off of Michigan Avenue, so it is within walking distance of most of the places we intended to visit. Otherwise, cabs were readily available outside at all hours of the day and night. Walton is a quiet street, so there was less traffic noise at night than at some of the other hotels in the city. The staff was very friendly and helpful -- even at midnight when we checked in. I generally do not expect much from a complimentary hotel breakfast, but I was pleasantly surprised. Good selection, everything was the right temperature, and the lady who was tending the buffet was all smiles. What a pleasant start to the day! We will definitely add this to our short list of Chicago hotels to visit again.
