    Nice family getaway

    We actually had a great time at the hotel in Chicago downtown. The only discomforting experience was our delayed flight of three ours from Atlanta to Chicago.

    Good Basic Room in Great Location

    Had a very pleasant stay here. I was traveling alone to a conference and felt very welcome and safe. Easy walk to the Roosevelt Metro Stop. Good basic room--very clean, but nothing fancy or special. The building had thin walls and windows. It was easy to hear noise from other rooms and outside. Bring earplugs.

    The little cafe that was part of the hotel building had really good breakfast sandwiches. I had pizza there one night too and it was excellent.

    The College Tour

    the first staff member was very abrupt when informing me that I had to take a smoking room when I had reserved NON smoking. then another staff member named Tiara stepped in and said that she would look to see what she could do. She came back a few minutes later,she upgraded us to a better room with complimentry breakfast for the inconvienince. Tiara was lovely and put smiley face notes in our room! I don't know the name of the other girl but I found her unsympathetic and appeared to be reading from a script. She seemed to not care "that's what's available, too bad." All other staff members were wonderful... the cafe nice and even the bell hop/ doorman, taxi service was more than adequate.

    good service

    It took me a couple of days to realize my heater was not working. When I called, the staff was on it in about 15 minutes, and had the heater fixed in under half an hour. Very pleased with the courtesy of the staff, very good sense of humor, and they did a great job of taking care of things in a quick and efficient manner.

    Run Down

    Very disappointed in the disrepair of the hotel. The pool was empty and closed and it looked like it has been that way for some time. My door stuck and I had to slam it just to close it. All in all a pretty crummy place.

    Nice hotel!

    Nice hotel. Older, but clean. Beds were AWESOME. Very comfortable and the comforters and linens were very nice. Free inroom high speed internetv(unsecured). If you want to go to the Magnificent Mile shopping/downtown, this hotel is a bit far for a walk (and to go back and forth to hotel). We took the bus and it took us right down there and back many times (we bought a three day pass). Pretty slick. Nightlife was a bit far as well. So next time, we'll be staying at at hotel more downtown off of North Michigan Ave so we're closer. Very pleased overall!
