Short business trip

Perfect location on Magnificent Mile, with good value compared to other higher-priced chains in the area. Room was generally comfortable and clean. Complimentary in-room WiFi useful. Free breakfast was convenient but of so-so quality (no issues, though). In-room HVAC unit somewhat noisy but tolerable.

Great place for a two person getaway.

Staffvis helpful and friendly. The room was nice, clean and neat. Nothing spectacular about the view from the window, if you're into that. Would be awesome if there was some sort of minifridge or drinks. T.V. channels were awesome, and wi-fi is a plus.

Great find for a last minute trip

I wish I could have stayed longer! But plan to return. I didn't explore much of the rest of the hotel, but the room was cozy, clean, very comfortable; the bed was great, very comfortable. We had a great view out the windows. A simple yet elegant room! The ONLY drawback was the signal/reception on many of the tv/movie channels was poor, it kept breaking up. But I look forward to going back.

Great romantic getaway

It was a very nice hotel everyone was friendly and very helpful. The hotel was quite and very peaceful didn't even feel like the city. The breakfast was a great touch.

Christmas Shopping Weekend on Mag Mile

The hotel was easy to find though there were only 2-3 spots in front to park at so you could unload and check in. I had to go around the block a couple times until one opened up. I felt it was in a safe location. Valet parking is available but self parking for $12/day was only a block away and in a nice garage. Check in was very smooth and our room was ready ahead of time. The room was better than average and clean. The bed was comfortable with plenty of pillows. The heater was somewhat noisy and you could hear sirens during the night. There was a nice, large flat screen TV in the room. The only problem we had was no hot water one morning but they had it fixed within a couple hours. The free breakfast was better than average, but like all hotels the room was small and it was hard to get a table. They served waffles, sausage, eggs, toast, cereal, fruit, and most of all the other typical items you'd expect. Check out went smooth and my parking bill had already charged to my credit card. I was given a voucher then to use at the garage to avoid paying over there. For the location and price, I thought it was a great place to stay. Bus stops within a block or two and the subway maybe 3-4 blocks away. And best of all you were right in the middle of the Magnificent Mile where you can easily walk from one end to other.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

If just staying in the heart of the city, take the time to learn the bus routes. Walking takes up a lot of time. Go to the information center near the John Hancock building for a free CTA map. Some stores sell similar maps for $7. Buy a 3-day pass for $20 and hop on and off as much as you like. Just swipe your card and go!
