Warm, Inviting and Affordable – A Review

We were thrilled to have travel, lifestyle and fashion blogger Melina Alt at our hotel recently. To our excitement, she had some fabulous things to say about her stay with us in her review.

But first, take a look at her beautiful photos below:

Melina reflects on the warm and inviting atmosphere as soon as she walked in our doors: “We directly felt like home as we entered the doorhall and a warm fire crackled in the fireplace.”

Melina was thrilled about our excellent and convenient location near the Magnificent Mile and in Chicago’s River North neighborhood. She also enjoyed the variety of products offered in the bathroom, the beautiful skyline views from her room, and the affordability of the hotel without sacrificing style and high quality.

If you’re interested in reading more, check out the rest of her review here. Maybe she’ll convince you to book your stay with us.

Caroling at Cloud Gate

Chicago is a wonderful city to be in during the holiday season. With an unlimited amount of things to do and festive attractions to see, it’s safe to say that you won’t be bored in the Windy City during the winter months. What better way to get the month of December rolling than go caroling at the Cloud Gate?

A tradition for many years, hundreds of singers from a variety of choral groups across the city of Chicago will come together on Friday, December 4, December 11 and December 18 to get the city into the holiday spirit. After performing a number of classic songs and carols, the crowd as well as carolers are encouraged to go ice skating at the Millennium Park McCormick Tribune Ice Rink under the skyscrapers.
