Very Good
Pros: Clean, cozy bed, room had a lovey view, and a nice fitness center.
Cons: Be prepared for a $16 daily "urban fee." They said it was for the amenities (coffee maker in room, fitness center...) but it's not optional....??? Not very transparent. They should just include it in the price.

Exceptional
Pros: New, clean, stylish, and friendly staff. Across from Grant Park.
Cons: "Urban fee" aka resort fee for non resort hotel. Gets you bottled water. Just include it in room cost. Also, offers early check in for $25 fee. If room is available, just offer it. If not, just say so. Same hotel chain must own Hotel Julian as same.
