I chose this hotel because of its location near the Amtrak station downtown. The location was excellent and the hotel met all of my needs.

One direction concert at soldier field

Everyone at this place was so nice and went out of there way for directions and anything we needed. It is 2 blocks from amtrak station. It is just a little to far away from michigan ave and navy pier for walking. It is a safe area. The pool is really nice. Only downfall no refrigerator in rooms. Took a taxi to amtrak station to go home because it was early and kids didn't want to walk. Blue Ribbon taxi #3105. The guy ripped us off charged 6 dollars for two blocks. We went to Navy pier and michigan ave for 8 bucks. I let the guy know he was taking advantage of us so beware of that Taxi!

Not a lot of places to walk too, I probably wouldn't stay there again just because of that, I would get closer to michigan ave.

Hidden fees

This is an ok hotel and location is nice. But even for the good price, prepaid deals be prepared to pay additional deposit hold for 'possible incidentals' when you arrive to this hotel. Contrary what the hotel advertises on their website (says for every room no deposit required). Of course you will get the money back few days later after you check out of the hotel. I will choose another hotel next time that's upfront with their fees, on principal.

One night stay

This hotel was a great location to where we had to be. The room was a normal hotel room although had no DVD player. The toilet would flush repeatedly after every flush as well as throughout the night until we got up and had to fix the toilet ourself by taking the top off the toilet. This was very annoying seeing we had to do this at least 4 times. The alarm went off at 4:30am even though we did not set the alarm. The staff gave us a few rewards towards our rewards program which was nice but refused to credit us anything about the toilet situation! The staff did give us a 2 hr late checkout which was very helpful. This hotel is a great location, parking on site and fine if your just sleeping there. One thing, we checked in early in the am and they had no valet parking available but we parked in the parking lot next to the hotel and saved over $15!
