The staff was VERY good to us. We were there over the 4th of July wknd & did lots. Went to the Museums....Navy Pier,Sears Tower, LOTS of shopping for my lady on State Street!
Had a room that we could watch the fireworks from Navy Pier & see the
Downside.... No fridge or microwave. Bad service at the resturant downstairs, however.....The Yolk just around the corner had a awsome breakfast!!
The location was great. It was very easy to walk or catch the bus to anywhere we needed to go. The hotel is no frills, but clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. If you want to go to Chicago on a small budget, this is the
place to stay.
The hotel was nice, they had a pool for the kids. the rooms were very clean and the bed and pillows were also nice. The hotel staff was the best. they told us how to get where we were going and what buses to take. One of the staff members even
went as far to go on line and print out a paper stateing what steets to go to and what subway to take and where to get off.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Long walk from hotel
Take the buses or the subway and by a 1 day pass at walgreens for 5.75. its good for 24hrs. Its good for the bueses and the subway. The buses go every where in chicago.
The staff was very friendly. We had a complicated group and they helped everything go smoothly -- we even got two upgraded rooms with frig and microwave. I'd read negative reviews (incl one about bed bugs) but didn't see any evidence of this. The
furniture, especially in one of the bigger rooms, was very worn and there was a funny smell. The valet parking was full and therefore not reliable. However, we were directed to a next-door overflow that charged about the same.
The hotel restaurant is just okay but Yolk next door is great.
Ive been here before, if purchased in advance of an event, the price is great for the location, its nclose to many good things, staff is friendly and the best thing...the BEDS are so comfortable as are the sheets. pillows and comforters!!! Some of
the best hotel beds Ive ever slept in for the price range.I did wish there were a few more cable channels, otherwise is an older place but very clean and nice staff.
