Location. The Hotel Sax Chicago is stationed within Chicago's (Ill.) Marina City complex, just two blocks north of the Chicago Loop business and financial district and one-half block from the Chicago River. Merchandise Mart, Chicago Theatre and Wrigley Building are three blocks from the hotel and shopping at North Michigan Avenue and the River North Gallery District is four blocks away.
Hotel Features. Hotel décor and ambiance capture an eclectic mix of 17th century French Salon with a 21st century twist. BIN 36 restaurant serves five-course tasting menus, wine pairings and a cheese bar with 50 worldwide selections. The Back Porch specializes in southern favorites such as Tennessee-style Baby Back Ribs, while even the 36-lane bowling alley serves macaroni and cheese with Wisconsin smoked cheddar and wings smothered in plum barbeque. Fine dining at Cubs announcer Harry Caray's self-titled restaurant lends itself to reputable Italian cuisine and the nationally-acclaimed steakhouse, Smith & Wollensky's, is also on site.
The hotel houses flexible meeting space accommodating up to 250 guests and wireless Internet access for a fee. Discounts are available to the on-site 25,000-square-foot fitness club with cardiovascular equipment, boxing gym and spa.
Guestrooms. Synonymous with the hotel's theme, 353 guestrooms at the Hotel are decorated with unique folk art and a kaleidoscope of color schemes. Furnishings include crushed velvet chairs, Eastern bed valances and minibars stocked with snacks and harmonicas. Rooms include ergonomic chairs with granite-topped desks, high-speed Internet access and safes. Guests traveling with children under four years of age have access to guestroom child-proofing kits. Upon request, CD players with complimentary blues CDs are available.
Hotel Expert's Tip. My guestroom key at the House of Blues Hotel was my ticket for priority access to jazz, hip-hop and rock concerts at the nationally-famed music venue, House of Blues, adjacent to the hotel.
