Girls Getaway

Our three-day, two-night stay was a Chicago whirlwind made easier by Manager Jason and his friendly staff. Doors opened, cabs hailed, smiles given. Hot breakfast and a Monday dinner made life easy, too! We took in a musical, shopped too much, and made our way to the Steve Harvey Show--thanks for all the directions. We'll return with our husbands! Nancy & Karen

Ideal for a party room

I was in need of something spacious in the downtown Chicago area to accommodate a handful of people after a night on the town and this is the place to go for that! The staff is accommodating and respects your privacy.

Great value, Nice people.

Perfect location for an impromptu reunion with friends from all over the country. The bell hops in the lobby were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was a little busy, but plentiful and good. Nice to have full refrigerators, and the suite set-up worked well for us.

Great Service, Decent Room

Overall, the staff was very friendly and helpful. They seemed very cheerful, especially downstairs. There would only be two complaints I have. One being that there are only two elevators to take you upstairs. The lobby is located on the 6th floor so everyone checking in at 4, means that those elevators are super busy, and there aren't any stairs to take you up. It's not that bad after checking in, but that part is just a hassle. The only other complaint I would have is the showers, the shower we had was no tub of any kind, it was sort of like gym locker showers. Except, the floor didn't curve in, so when showering, the whole floor got soaked in the bathroom. The rest of the room was great though, decent sized, nice kitchen, provide silverware, etc. It's good for a short stay, the breakfast is decent just a little small. Good for the price.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

If you're looking for cheap fast food, you're best bet is going to be to head away from magnificent mile. Either head the opposite way about two blocks and there is a portillos which is really good, or head towards magnificent mile, pass it, and you'll run into many small restaurants that won't be as expensive. Try to go to dinner before 5 or after 7 because the lines can get long places.
