  • Still a very good place to stay, but it is slipping

    by 482JamesS482 on 2018-11-12 06:19 pm

    Great location and service, rooms are nice-sized and clean. Overall seems less luxurious with cheap appointments. Heating system is shaky - it's hot or cold; my friends' room had no heat. Food options are outrageously expensive - as is every amenity.
    Parking is $75/day. Health club is very expensive at $25/day unless you have a good Hilton Honors Status. Building itself remains gorgeous and security is strong.

  • A classic hotel. And it feels somewhat classic

    by PMcFarout on 2018-11-12 11:25 am

    The view on the lakeside makes you want to weep. The city view isn't bad either with the old Sears Tower looming impressive out my window. This used to be a 3000+ room hotel, and they took the walls out of the rooms to make less than half that number now. I attended a conference there and we were in the basements (there are 6) and it felt so crazy... bunkered and strange. The hotel is fun... huge... a city block+ that was to be a 'city unto itself' when it was born for 30M prior to the Great Depression and snapped up by the Hilton's for only 7M a few years later. It's a grand place, that feels like visiting your grandmothers grand old place that nobody thinks she should try to maintain.

    The Hilton's have become savvy and they have staff now who have to job of waylaying you while you walk through this grand structure to sell you Hilton vacations. It feels... assaultive.

    My room was cool. Two bathrooms, a holdover from the days of yore, and I used each one and left a bigger tip for the room attendants who work so hard for this family. Everything was plugged into an extension strip and jutted out from behind the desk like a tumor... like an old added onto farmhouse without a good plan for the future.

    And they start to text you when you arrive. Asking for questions or if you need help, as if they know you might get lost among all the levels and escalators and back hallways and the gargantuan feel of the place.

    That said... it's the view and proximity and place in Chicago that is sweet. Just contend with the notion that this grand dame is still figuring out how to pay the taxes while moving the doilies around. I loved the place really.

  • Shopping Spree

    by Pamela A on 2018-11-11 05:01 am

    All of the stores had their summer merchandise on either sale or clearance. The Water Tower was the best!! The stores were packed but it was well worth the crowds and the wait to get the good deals !!
