Nothing fancy, but good location

Good size hotel room which was clean and had all the basics. Nothing too fancy but we had no reason to complain either. The location was very central. Short walk to amenities and transportation links.

Wonderful experience. Best value in Chicago. Rooms are small, but I prefer to call them efficient.

Good for a night stay

Used this for a single night stay on NYE since it was close to place I was going out. Nothing fancy, simple room. Could have used better lighting and heating unit that worked nicely.

Just what I needed

Just needed to be downtown for a conference without breaking the bank. Accomplished...free parking is huge...great food walking distance and the rooms were as nice as they could be considering the age of the building. Bed was good and bath was clean. I would stay here again for the same reason.

Not a good match to the Howard Johnson branding name

Location is the one thing that was good. General appearence not good, and cleanliness doubtful (carpet smelled). Forgotten articles in bathroom.

Decent hotel in a great location with FREE parking

Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. We LOVED the free parking! When comparing hotel rates, consider how much it costs to park in Chicago (and how difficult it is to find a place). That was probably the biggest selling point for us. Bed was comfortable, pillows not so great. Location was good -- just a few blocks to Michigan Ave and an easy drive to our event. This hotel is decent but certainly nothing special. However, we were only there to sleep so were willing to put up with older carpet and a shower temp that fluctuated when someone else flushed a toilet.
