A great location and lots of amenities for conventioneers.
This comfy, reliable hotel is all about the location. It is convenient to the John Hancock Building, Water Tower Place and all the shopping that Michigan Avenue has to offer. Renovated in 2012, the meeting spaces can host an impressive 900 guests, making this property popular with large gatherings. Each of the 752 guest rooms and suites sports cable TV, Wi-Fi and comfortable furnishings. In-room spa treatments and 24-hour room service are available. Both on-site restaurants --- Café à la Carte and The Grill on the Alley --- offer guests a wide selection of dining options. Martinis, single-malt scotches and fine steaks are popular items of choice at the latter. And if you indulge in the evening, you needn't feel guilty. The next morning you can go for a run along nearby Lake Michigan --- even if you didn't bring your workout gear, as the hotel allows guests to rent New Balance shoes and apparel during their stay.
