    Wrote this up much more extensively in a recent trip report.

    Bottom-line: Greatest airport hotel ever.

    * Event the shuttle from ORD is nice, leather seats, looks new.
    * Beautiful lobby, art gallery in the hotel.

    As a Royal Ambassador I was pre-upgraded to a suite. At check-in the agent looked at my room assignment and proactively found me a suite with a better view.

    Property has no lounge. I asked about free breakfast. It's apparently not really a benefit here but they gave it to me for the asking, something that others have reported as well (which is why I asked). They also gave me coupons for free evening cocktails.

    View from the suite was awesoe, arrival path into ORD, the planes just danced beautifully lining up for arrival...

    Room was nice, bathroom gigantic and beautiful. And it was cheap, I was there on an $87++ rate IIRC.

    Add in free minibar, the fruit and cookies that were delivered, amazing value!

    Tons of photos over in the trip report.

    A recent update just in case anybody is wondering...

    Just stayed here last night after doing an overnight to ORD. The hotel is still awesome, the shuttle is still nice and looks new and I can't really find any negatives - other than the location if you're planning to go downtown a lot.

    Even then the shuttle will take you to the blue line, and it's only a 30-40 minute ride on the train and you're on Michigan Ave. A cab ride was exactly $35 last night in case you're wondering :)
