Meh for the money

Stayed here for airshow, so excellent location. Good things: super comfy bed, big tv, lavazza coffee pods, elegant bathroom with tub, most staff friendly. "Would have been nice" to have: water; bathrobe; mini bar; friendly, thorough welcoming checkin; offer to re-join Hilton rewards, and actual enrollment when email provided to do so; working key card for my entire stay; easy-to-use tablet; better A/C; and elevators that actually stopped in the lobby. While it was nice to stay in iconic location, next time in Chicago will stay at the Hyatt or Westin, for the five star amenities, depending on my activity focus.

Well-preserved history in a prime location

The staff is so friendly, courteous and professional. It's an 100-year old hotel, worn, comfortable and charming.

    This is a beautiful old hotel that the Hilton company seems to be doing its very best to ruin. I would not have been able to stay in room without fresh air had an "engineer" not kindly come up to open the window for me. I turned the air conditioning off in the room and was very comfortable with window open. The hallway where the elevators were absolutely freezing, well below healthy or comfortable temperature. Such squandering of energy while people in other parts of the world and in Chicago itself suffer record heat without access to ac seems especially criminal. The replacement of print materials giving you hotel information with fancy electronic tablets that need to be recharged seems also just idiotically wasteful and an insult--as if the presence of these electronic devices were necessary to a good night's sleep. Staff are doing their best under these conditions and were very friendly.

    Stayed 4 nights in Aug 2019
