I love visiting Chicago as the city is one of my favorites in the US. Take a look at the video I made with my daughter Rebecca that shows some of the reasons why I love Chicago. I always enjoy trying new hotels on my frequent trips. On this visit. I tried out a boutique hotel located just off the Magnificent Mile. Such a convenient location and yet away from the hustle and bustle of the main shopping thoroughfare. The large room was very well equipped and I loved the modern design. The bathroom was particularly luxurious. Sadly the weather didn’t cooperate to allow me to try out the rooftop bar/restaurant. For a city break, this type of boutique hotel is ideal.
On the negative side, a pet peeve of mine is an extra charge for wifi. For a boutique hotel, I think the front desk staff could be a little friendlier. Upon check in and out I did not feel at all welcome but maybe I just got the staff on a bad couple of days. The bar/breakfast area is very tiny so if many of the guests decided to eat at the same time there would be a major issue. However, with so many restaurants on your doorstep (and much cheaper options) I guess this is not usually an issue.
