Cute, but small

The rooms were small, but nice. Everything was very clean and it was great that internet was free!

Cool place

The room was small which made me feel like I was in a European hotel. The location is excellent on the border between Lincoln Park & Old Town. The seven-block walk to the nearest "L" train station provided good exercise. The restaurant and roof-top bar are great!

A great stay at modest cost.

Hotel's single-bed room was very compact but fully adequate if not spending long hours in it. It had good amenities, really only lacking a refrigerator. Only shortcoming in cleanliness was a bit of hair trapped low in a fold of the shower curtain the first night. Parking valet earned his tip running a long distance through snow & traffic to bring the car neatly brushed off. Rooftop bar offers an excellent burger if you don't want to go out (Old Town with a selection of popular bars and good restaurants is nearby# or dine at the high end on-site restaurant #pricey, but food was great#. Free in-room wireless Internet access with speed adequate for business use #you can upgrade to watch videos without pauses). I would definitely go back.

Nightlife tip: Long walk from hotel

Old Town is within long walking distance and contained many establishments packed during mid-week at happy-hour, plus restaurants (I had excellent veal marsala at a reasonable price at one). If not walking, figure on close to $20 for valet parking plus tip.

Great Lincoln Park hotel

Very nice rooms, although they are small, and the hotel's restaurant and rooftop bar are each pretty special! If you want the Lincoln Park/Old Town Chicago experience, this is the hotel to stay in!

Loved the location near Lincoln Park and Old Town. The view of the park and bedding was very comfortable. We enjoyed the roof bar for drinks and would go back sometime.

Liked the room, small bathrooom, nice neighborhood, one inaccurate piece of info from the desk regarding a restaurant, that wasted two,hours of our time.

great hotel

This hotel is lovely. Location, food, staff, and decor is great. The beds aren't the most comfortable that I've experienced but its given all the other stuff it does so well I plan to stay here on all my visits to Chicago.
