Amazing historic hotel
The hotel is on the busy Michigan Avenue on the other side of which is Millennium Park, with the huge Buckingham Fountain and with Lake Michigan beyond, about 300m.away. Our room was on the 8th floor at the front and hence had a truly outstanding view. The traffic on Michigan Avenue did not disturb us (good double glazing). The hotel is in need of some TLC, but is still excellent value nevertpe less.
The "Gold Room" is a huge ballroom that has been preserve beautifully in high flown Baroque style, quite incredible (you have to ask to be shown it).
