Friendly bar staff
Nothing comes to mind
Immediately fixed the issue for me. Very good service in accounting department.
Room was not pre-paid as I had requested via a credit card authorization.
The location, decor, staff, food - all truly fantastic
Having to pay for wifi these days is unnecessary
I enjoyed dinner in the pump room..excellent.
Did not sleep at all walls are to thin continuous slamming of doors not to mention our neighbors had company all night.
From the welcome to the departure it's always a pleasure to stay. Excellent service, attention to detail and a wonderful atmostphere.
Staff were friendly and real. Laud back casual atmosphere. Great area.
Fitness room next door sounded like construction. Copy of Bill was left outside on the floor, no envelope for anyone to see or take. Very odd.
comfortable. nice staff. early checkin. near red line
loud, annoying a/c unit! starting to show wear-we've stayed there several times. square, flat sinks don't rinse well
quality of room furnishings and bed design aesthetic overall, bar, restaurant location staff etc.
The location of the Public is second to none - downtown easily accessed as is the lakeshore. But - without being right in the downtown - nicely set in a quiet neighborhood. Lively bar in the evening with great cocktails and people watching.
elevator was broke for my entire stay, and they woke me up at 7am working on it.
The lobby of the hotel.
The staff are horsey people .
location friendliness beverages in foyer
Staff was responsive to all needs. Location was great and bar and public areas are welcoming.
Would prefer free wifi and use of computers in lobby is misleading claim. One elevator was not in service for our whole stay. Bathroom door and closet creaked loudly and toilet sounds like a marine toilet with power flush unfortunately waking all in room.
location and energy food at Pump room was very good
only problem was the TV would not shut off
The bicycles available for guest use were a big plus. Very agreeable porter and outside staff.
Only one operational elevator for a hotel of this size is inexcusable. No visible emergency repairs underway during our three day stay. Many guests had to use stairs or endure long waits to move luggage.
Clean, comfortable rooms and helpful, friendly staff. Superb espresso and breakfast options in the various rooms in the lobby. An excellent place for meeting people for a glass of wine too.
Only allowing one device free wifi access ($20 per day for additional devices) is unnessecarily greedy. Air conditioning units are loud, though, unfortunately, most places have this problem.
Clean, Awesome Location, Staff were professional!!
Old Air Conditioner System and Noisy. Windows are Sealed Shut, so no Fresh Air
Location, lobby area and bars, vibe.
Virtually no amenities in bathroom. For such a good hotel they need to provide quality toiletry products not just a bar if soap. Also would be nice if they had nice plush bathrobes in the bedroom. I asked housekeeping for one and was given a worn out discolored waffle weave one, very poor. Some of the rooms are very spartan. I stayed in the celebrity suite once and I would suggest they beef it up with more books, candles and sofa cushions.
The hotel interiors are beautiful and the rooms generously sized. Position is excellent, close to restaurants and Michigan Avenue
There are only two elevators and the wait can be ridiculously long. We don't know about brunch in the restaurant because nobody came to serve us and we left.
I arrived early, at 10:00 AM and was pleasantly surprised that the hotel could find a room for me in contrast to the experience of several other reviewers. The location was about a 10 minute walk from the Mag Mile and steps to the lake. The staff was helpful and courteous, the hotel was certainly older, but my room was comfortable and clean and without question I would stay there again.
Agreed with other reviewers that the elevator should be card access only, the club downstairs attracts a crowd most evenings and any of those people can take the elevator up to the rooms. The free wifi appeared to be limited to one device at a time, which doesn't seem a great option for most business travelers with multiple devices. Certainly not a huge problem, just a minor inconvenience.

Chic, gorgeous room & lobby
Room was a bit dusty
The style, location, quietness
The pate (too sloppy and salty) and espresso martini (shouldn't have chocolate or cream!)
The room was very spacious and the common parts of the hotel are very chic.
The small, unsexy and basic bathroom (think chain hotel bathroom) was a disappointment and out of step with the rest of the hotel. Walls are very thin and airconditioning noisy.
Location is great and the lobby area is beautiful.
Stains on both comforters and on chair in hotel room. Carpet appeared dirty. Overall, the room did not appear to be as clean as normally expected form a hotel of this grade. Disappointing because the location is convenient.
