Moved to the Affinia on Saturday night after staying Friday at the Intercontinental on Michigan Ave. Probably would have been better going the other way. Valet parking is $52 but it is offsight at the Affinity. Very little space to loan and unload. Retrieving your car takes longer. The lobby is not up to standard and is cold with limited seating. We had multiple rooms reserved and ended up in different towers that required travel to the lobby and moving to a different elevator to go to someone elses room. First our room, which the front desk said was completely renovated. It was larger than the room at the IC but was much cheaper in amenites. The dresser looked very cheap and more traditional in style. The tables were modern. Nothing seems to match and it looked like they shopped at Target. The bathroom was much larger than at the IC but the counter was at a level that was for a very short person. The shower was fine and would accomadate a 7 foot person. The painted walls in the bathroom looked like a 60 year old rental home in a marginal neighborhood (very low quality). Our room had 3 steps down from the entry/bath area to the actual bed.The steps were not standard code and in the night I kept smashing my big toe on the second step. The only chair in the room was a desk chair. There were no ice machines on any of the floors. You had to call room service for delivery. The room had a fridge that was cool not cold and had many items for purchase in it. Water was $6.50. They tout numerous types of pillows but you had to call housekeeping to have one delivered. The regular pillows were not comfortable. The bed was much harder than at the IC hotel. Check in and check out was not difficult. Room on the 15th floor had a view of an office building. Location did not seem as convenient as the IC hotel. Our son's room was smaller with a street view. It had a reclining chair in the room and a walk-in shower. He said the room was ok but did not like the bed as it sloped to the middial and wasn't comfortable. We has stayed at the Holiday Inn Mechandise Mart, the Hyatt, and the IC Hotel. The Affinity would be our last choice for comfort and location. The noise outside the window was quite loud. The noise in the hallway was also very loud. Not sure if the walls had insulation.
