Just a quick visit to Chicago

Room was very very small. The view was of a brick wall. Parking was very expensive and our standard pick up truck did not fit in the parking garage with the valet. So we had to self park several block's away which was just as expensive. Breakfast was nice. Clean hotel.

Wedding shopping

I was very pleased to find this hotel in downtown Chicago. It was very close to the Magnificent Mile Shopping District plus others shops within blocks of the hotel. The hotel was clean and the breakfast was great! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I will definitely stay here my next trip to Chicago!

Perfect 3 day get-away

Family of 6 stayed in 2 rooms. Small but comfy rooms. The staff are probably the most friendly group I've ever encountered. Great location, excellent breakfast.

Great Price and Location, plus friendly staff

The location, price and friendly staff is what made this such a great place to stay. The breakfast in the morning had a lot of variety. The rooms were small, but clean. There is no pool or hot tub, but with so much to do in Chicago you don't really need it.

The Purple Pig. It is a tapas bar and the food it the best I'd ever eaten. Make reservations as it was almost an hour wait

Small Rooms!!!

This hotel is way over priced for what you get. The rooms are very small even for a double. Elevators are slow and take forever to get up or down. Only good thing is the hotel is in a good area to walk to shops and has a decent breakfast.
