I am from Chicago, and I wanted to get a room for my birthday as a treat for myself. I wanted a nice King Bed, good views of the city, and a pool with a hot tub. I got a Corner King Room on expedia.
When I got there, the concierge noticed it was my birthday, which is nice. He claimed a Corner King on the 4th floor was the only one left. I can't recall exactly my response but I made it clear that was disappointing for me.
After two minutes of him clicking around on the computer, he said he found a corner king suite, and he would give it to me. I was very happy to get the upgrade.
The room was better than I expected it would be, 3304. The best thing is the view. It looked over Lake Michigan, Navy Pier, the river, and some downtown area, including the Trump Tower. There "may" be better views out there, but this was awesome and breath taking, and was 100% satisfied with the view. It was actually a foggy day and I still was impressed.
The room had two bathrooms, a living area with a tv, a separate bedroom with a tv and with window, and another bathroom with a separate tub and shower. The bed was great, very comfortable. The room would impress anyone I know. It has all the bells and whistles one could expect for a hotel to have.
It's not clear to me if they charge for internet or not or pool access, but they didn't charge me.
