Hotel Sax is a boutique-like hotel with immaculate details in the beautiful rooms. But, like all other boutique hotels, the rooms are very small. So if you like to spread out, Sax is not for you. I happen to like the attention to detail and upscale finishes, so I highly recommend Hotel Sax. The location is a plus also. Right in the center of everything, close to shopping, restaurants, the river-walk, and next to a beautiful view!
After a day of walking and shopping, we were ready for a nice dinner at Merlo's on Maple, an Italian restaurant.
Next to the Signature Lounge atop the John Hancock building for a few cocktails. We had a perfect night view of Chicago from our window-side table. The best view though, for some reason, is from the ladies bathroom. Go figure. Make sure you have some time and you're not too thirsty though. The line to get in is pretty long, although it moves swiftly. Service was quite slow too, but the view made up for it. I think they have that figured out.
We finished the night at one of the many piano bars, and didn't get back to the hotel until 4 am. Pretty good night!
