Executive look, comfortable feel

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel. It's a little bit off the beaten path for the tourist stuff along Michigan Avenue, but the price is right to walk the few extra blocks. [...], at the front desk, is the most amazing help when it comes to where to go, what to see and do or where to eat, and how to get to each place. He's the primary reason for the return visit. During both visits there was some middle of the night guest noise that was loud enough and went on long enough to disrupt a good nights sleep. I believe hotel staff had to take action in both situations to quiet the raucous. The rooms are clean, however a little cozy. The staff is attentive upon receipt of a request.

"Central" to downtown business district!

Staff was friendly and helpful. I stayed on a Thursday night, and then a separate stay on a Saturday night. The rooms are consistently small; however, clean and comfortable. The common areas (business/lounge) were quite swanky and contemporary, and the selection of beer at the Elephant & Castle restaurant was tasty. I think it is a very good value for the price in a very central location to access anything in the downtown area.

Stay here for next year's Lollapalooza!

Stayed at the Central Loop for 3 nites while attending Lollapalooza in Grant Park. The location couldn't have been better! Only a 4 block walk to the park, and 5 blocks from the Sears Tower! The only complaint i had was our door was right next to the people staying in the room beside us, and the door kept opening and slamming, that got very annoying. But other than that, I would definately stay here again!

expensive for the quality

The hotel feels like a motel 8 - nothing special, this is no Sheraton or even Best Western. Pricey for the money, but it was clean at a good location. Had to walk three blocks to park though.

Business 'n' Pleasure

After a busy day and enjoying the city in the evening, the room was just what we needed (5 nights- no problems). Queen bed w/ kitchenette (microwave, fridge, coffee) was perfect. AC was nice! The city speaks for itself - the hotel fits right in. Go to the new Modern Wing at the Art Institute and be sure to check out Millenium Park.

Nice, Clean Hotel

The hotel front desk and housekeeping staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was a bit small and there was no bathtub but neither was a problem. It was very clean and had plenty of hot water for showers. The bedding and pillows felt very fresh, fluffy and comfortable. Would definitely choose this hotel again when in the area. The hotel had a great location with almost everything in walking distance.

If you are going to Navy Pier, it can be a little confusing and a fairly long walk. On the way back we took the water taxi, it brings you very close to the hotel and the price was very reasonable.
