Awesome location

This was one of best hotel location wise I stayed. The hotel was beautiful starting from 15th floor, so you get nice downtown view. Staff was courteous and their breakfast buffet is awesome. Just needs more variety though. Only complaint is for the beds, as I found it bit soft so as they would sag in middle making it bit uncomfortable. Overall we got value for our money when we booked room with a view.

Great value

The hotel was very nice, room had a terrific view, very quiet. We had to ask for a late check out and there was a charge for that, but after seeing the line at the desk when we left, I was suprised they allowed us to stay as long as we did. The front doorman was great. It was a bit odd having the hotel inside a business building, so you had to hunt for the hotel lobby (on the 15th floor) and then you had an additional set of elevators to use, but not too inconvenient. Close to a lot of things or a short cab ride away. Was a STEAL for the price we paid!

Short Trip - Great Hotel

The hotel staff was very friendly, the facilities were very clean, and the bed was super comfortable. This is the first hotel I have stayed at that had a nice 32" LCD TV. Most of the hotels I've stayed in recently still had the old tube TV's. I would highly recommend this hotel if you want a nice affordable hotel with a convenient location.

A great view of Chicago River

In and Out parking was convenient and reasonable for Chicago. Although not near the main drag for shopping and buses, there were many businesses within walking distance if you knew where you wanted to go. Would try the water taxis next time since they were so close to hotel.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

For "hop on/hop off" shuttles, would use Chicago Tours instead of Grayline Tours because they seemed to have 3X the number of shuttles.

Great location, good for the money

The hotel was part of a huge indoor complex but walking in from the ground floor it was difficult to figure out where to go! There was a big information desk but you couldnt check in there - instead you had to take these side elevators to the 15th floor (confusing) and then there was another set of elevators to get to your room. this got annoying if i forgot to bring something and we would have to get all the way back but other than that no complaints. This was in a great location and the rooms were a nice size and clean.

Good stay for the price

Good stay, decent location. Hotel is hard to find with small signage. Hotel lobby is on 15th floor of the building shared by many businesses. Picture on advertisement is not picture of hotel building.
