Gone are the wooden furniture in the guest rooms. In their place, Meyer Davis Design used metals, mirrors and grey stone to complete the "perfectly downtown feel". Since each of the east facing rooms have some of the best views in the city, the finishes in the room use reflections of the sparkling lake as art. If you score a room with a city view, don't worry, the room's design also complements Chicago's obsession with architecture.
The old restaurant, Wave, has been replaced with Current, offering up creative cocktails and seasonal farm-to-table cuisine with Italian and French influences. If the lounge scene if more you speed, the Living Room offers up unobstructed views of the lake with some of the hottest DJs spinning tracks all night long. Rates next weekend start at $469 a night.
