A playful, lively feel and a great location are the cornerstones of this downtown Chicago hotel. Graffiti murals splash the walls, album covers decorate the elevators and most rooms overlook a lightwell filled with local sculptures. The ACME loves their tech perks, so download their YIKES app before you arrive so you can open your room door with your phone; once inside you can ask Alexa (via the in-room Amazon Echo) where the best nearby deep dish is. 

The hotel's sassy vibe is carried into the modern yet industrial decor: bathroom mirrors are marked with a giant red kiss mark, and many of the walls are stamped with a large painted handprint. Rooms also feature the ability to stream your own content on the smart TV and trendy takes on old-school amenities like chalkboards in lieu of “do not disturb” signs.

Aside from its lively vibe, the hotel’s greatest asset is its location -- two blocks from Michigan Avenue and in the heart of the bustling River North neighborhood. It’s the ideal home base to explore the area’s many restaurants, bars and shops; when it’s time to check out the rest of the city, an L stop is just steps away.

The hotel's cocktail bar, the Berkshire Room, is regularly ranked among the city's best, and the West Town Bakery cranks out top-rated cookies, donuts and cake balls along with grab-and-go sandwiches. The bakery is also in charge of the hotel's neat "knock-and-drop" coffee service -- just let the front desk know when you need your morning fix, and they'll drop off a thermos of java outside your room.

Other Comments
They advertise a hot tub but when we went to use it, it was reserved for a private party. Twice this happened to us. This was very frustrating since the hot tub was an amenity that caught our attention to rent this hotel. We questioned the use of the hot tub to the hotel staff and they said that the hot tub is rented out for private parties because they make more money. They should not list the hot tub as an amenity if they are going to rent it out for private parties. I think the guest should have first dibs or they should tell the guest ahead of time that a private party is taking place so that we don’t get dressed with our suits on and go down to the hot tub planning to use it then be told that it is closed for a private party. We wasted soooo... much of our precious vacation time “trying” to use the hot tub.

Extremely clean, very central to The Miracle Mile. The lobby staff was very helpful with ANYTHING we needed. Rooms are a little small but you have to expect that in downtown Chicago. Next time in The Windy City, we will be staying at ACME again.
