I almost didn’t go to Blogher this year. I was really un-motivated because the conference really wasn’t very good the last year in New York and I didn’t understand how it was so small in New York. Everyone said it was huge but it keeps getting smaller and smaller. Then I spent almost all of July in Texas watching my grandmother die and I was torn about going to the conference. Well one day while I was trying to work in the hospital where my grandmother was being treated, a friend of mine asked me if I had found a hotel or transportation from the airport. I hadn’t even thought about the conference and she said she had a hotel room at the Hard Rock Hotel in Chicago and I could stay there, if I wrote a review. So the hotel comped my stay.
When you’re looking for a hotel, you want one centrally located around things to do. From Hard Rock Chicago I could walk to the Navy Pier, the Million Dollar Mile (shopping like you wouldn’t believe) and the river boat tours. Hard Rock Chicago was perfectly located. What else do you look for? Great staff, clean rooms, comfy beds and nice showers. Well Check all of those off the list check check check!!!
Maybe what you look for is something unique. The Hard Rock Hotel in Chicago has many unique touches. One of which is that every floor is a different rock band and I was on level Kiss. On the walls outside the elevator and in the room were memorabilia and art that represented Kiss. Just walking into the hotel you can feel the atmosphere; Hard Rock screams Hard Rock no pun intended.
Then maybe you ask yourself, is this a hotel you would want to return to. YES! I would love to return to Hard Rock Hotel, I felt like it was a hotel that valued it’s customers. They were willing to go to Walgreens to get me some ear plugs that I needed to sleep and I told them that wasn’t necessary because I was capable of walking to Walgreens myself. But I was grateful they were willing to do it for me.
I loved the black couches in the lobby and the bar had some really great drinks. Hard Rock Hotel Chicago is an treat to stay at.
