Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

We got parking in the lot the is across the street, but it was lower wacker and we drove around forever to figure out how to get there. So it's worth the extra $$ to park behind the hotel. Regular price is $45 per night, so get it ahead of time on a discounted app like spothero.

Affordable in The Loop

If you need an affordable hotel option in the Loop, this hotel is a good choice. I have stayed here before and will stay here again. It is not fancy but the location is great. It is a little loud with street noise but I think this may be unavoidable.

Zoo Lights!

We checked in around 3:00 pm and everything was ready. It was just a short walk to the Christmas Market in Daley Square. After that, the staff was very helpful to get us a cab to the Lincoln Park Zoo. The kids loved the Noodles and Company in the lobby and the Starbucks across the street. They had a good included breakfast. The pool was small but we were the only ones there and they also had a hot tub. I couldn't believe how close it was to the Sears Tower, Metra Station and Union Station. It was a good value and fantastic location.

In-and-Out

A one night stay in Chicago while taking care of business in the US. The location was close to a bus station where I dropped a friend off, the staff was knowledgeable and friendly... and some decent bars were within walking distance.

Satisfactory Experience

Overall, we had a good experience at this hotel. Very clean room and comfortable bed. Good location to easy "L" train access. Only 2 blocks away from Willis Tower. $12 cab ride to Navy Pier and Magnificent Mile. The only thing is it can be slightly loud on certain floors because of the L train if you're not used to it. If possible, ask for a room that faces the front #street# view of the buliding, away from the train.

Last Minute Anniversay trip

This hotel was nice. The room was pretty with modern decor, and very spacious. The windows panoramic view added to the open feel. The down side is you can hear all the noises from the street, which made for a restless night sleep. While the room was clean, their new decor was already a bit beat up. The curtains were snagged and the lamps were scuffed and tattered looking. The location was a little more on the outskirts than I'm used to, the trollies don't travel to this part of town, but the stops are relatively close. But it's about a 15 minute walk to the Art Institute of Chicago and about 30-35 minute walk to the start of the magnificent mile. Overall it was a good stay, on par with the chain. Bring your own toiletries, they only provide 2 small bars of soap and a single use shampoo, no lotion or conditioner. And plan on eating breakfast out. They do provide breakfast at no cost, but is it utter chaos in the breakfast area, you cannot serve yourself with the hot food, and the eggs were inedible.

Great Value! Great Breakfast! (small pool)

We were greeted kindly by the front desk clerks, who were fairly efficient though a bit harried. They graciously accommodated our request to change from a smokey 'non-smoking' room to an upgraded one. Room and bed were comfortable, with a futon couch that was moderately comfortable for sleeping. Minor criticism - indoor pool was VERY small. OK for small children, but no lap swimming. Breakfast? A step above the typical waffle and pastry routine. They offered fresh fruit, yogurt (and pastries). Additionally, one morning there was also biscuits/gravy, as well as hot oatmeal in a crockpot. The next morning they served hot scrambled eggs, sausage and bacon. The best part? The ladies operating the breakfast room were as kind and accommodating as they could be. Their smiles and warm greetings were enough to bring us back!
