Great location!

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel and it is in a great location for downtown Chicago. It is in walking distance to Michigan Avenue, Millenium Park and theatres. The room cost also includes parking which is a rare find downtown and the parking is on site, not at a lot across the street.

Outstanding!

Loved the location! Easy walk to great restaurants. Free parking. My wife, daughter, grandson and I visited Chinatown, the Hancock Building, Museum of Science and Industry and the Natural History Museum. Also visited the Aquarium and Planetarium. A great Spring Break for us. This was our 57th Anniversary and it couldn't have been been better.

We were taking an overnight vacation, wanted something downtown so we could see the attractions, but not expensive. This hotel fit the bill.

Great location, great price!

Stayed at the hotel overnight because of late night concert at the House of Blues. Hotel was in walking distance (maybe 6-8 blocks) from House of Blues. In a block distance is a McDonald's, Walgreen's, Hard Rock Cafe, Rain Forest Cafe, Rosatti's Pizza, and the Ohio House restaurant (great breakfast value!). Hotel was clean and quiet and easy to access in the wee hours of the morning. Great Price for downtown Chicago!

Unbeatable price for the locations

I love the fact that parking is free. The last time we went to dinner in Chicago we paid $49.00 to park! We walked to the Magnificent Mile, Division St., and Old Town area for dinner and back--no cabs. The rooms are in good shape--the halls are a little shabby but all is clean. The parking attendants were very helpful.

Salpicon is a little known Mexican Restaurant with unique offerings like Rick Bayless's places but easier to get in to. 1215 N. Wells (.93 of a mile from the hotel). It was a nice walk especially after dinner!
