I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The rooms were exceptionally clean, contemporary, and quiet. The staff was very warm and helpful. There were numerous restaurants, convenient stores as well as nearby attractions. I've already recommended this hotel to my friends.

Great hotel!

I was in town for a convention and this place was great for the money. Less expensive than the hotel where the convention was being held and walking distance away. Clean rooms, attentive staff. Highly recommend.

A Couples Random Getaway

Located in the middle of the city so it would have been easy to walk to restaurants and such. My boyfriend and I went during winter time so we did not stay out in the winter cold much. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Swimming Weekend

We needed to be near the UIC Natatorium for our annual District meet. The hotel was in an ideal location, only 8 minutes from the UIC campus! ... easy access to Route 290/90/94. Staff was pleasant. We used the valet service, although a bit pricey at $48.00, it was convenient to have access to the car for loading and unloading the needed items from our swim meet. We took advantage of the Meli Deli bar area to bring cocktails back to the room after a long day. We also walked next door to the Pot Belly for a quick sandwich before leaving the city. The Hotel was easily accessible to the CTA Services. We will plan to return to the hotel again next year and walk the areas "Printers Row" and Loop areas. Thank you for a wonderful experience!!!

New Years in Chicago

The high ceilings and comfortable king bed made us feel like we were in a mini palace. Great view of downtown. The shower was a bit odd, there was no door or handle in the shower and I was afraid I was going to slip. The staff was really kind and helpful. Loved that we could walk to all the Chicago attraction in 15 minutes or less.
