Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
Nice lobby, roof top bar/restaurant, and access to the river and Chicago Theater. Paid for river view but was placed on the 5th floor so the view was more of the roof top rather than the river. The room was clean, but not as nice as I would expect for the price. Staff was friendly.

Great roof top bar. Staff up there was on point. Food was also great. I don't have any complaints. Even with the on-going staff issues across the country the hotel had everything covered.
