good value, helpful staff, great location

Just stayed one night, but found staff very helpful and the location--walking distance to the Riverwalk, theatres and the L was great. Room had good workdesk, free internet, etc. Mine had no view and no place to hang clothing, but not a problem for a short stay. Free Breakfast was open for long hours, had fine variety and was served in spacious and pleasant dining room.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

Walk straight north about 3 blocks to the Chicago Riverwalk--turn right (east) on Wacker Drive's top level or go down stairs closer to river level. Tour boats dock there, flotillas of kayaks and canoes pass by and many outdoor restaurants are available.

A so-so stay

The hotel service was nice and helpful, the room was just not in a good location (across from the elevators). The room was air conditioned, but still a bit too humid.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

There is a continental breakfast on the second floor, with it there is also waffle makers, sausage patties and biscuits. For a budget, it's not a bad place to stay. If you're with your spouse, I'd spring for something a little better next time.

Good quality for a good price

The hotel personnel is very gentle. The room and the bathroom were clean and comfortable enough for the price compared to other hotels nearby. One of the best things is that you can walk to several nice spots from hotel, that is also close to subway. The only thing that should be improved is the breakfast room: it is too small to fit everyone when hotel is full. People were struggling to find a place even though food was good enough compared to other hotels in USA (that usually has bad breakfast offer compared to other countries in the world).

Perfect Central Location

I loved my two night stay at this hotel. The staff was friendly and professional, and went above and beyond to make our stay perfect. The continental breakfast was above and beyond anything I could have hoped for. With a great view of downtown and an amazing selection of breakfast options from waffles to cereal, fresh fruit and an array of beverages I was amazed by the spread. The rooms were clean and the bathroom was beautiful. I could not have imagined a better hotel.

Buffet breakfast and wi-fi included with no extra charge. Two blocks away from SEARS. Not expensive. Nice and clean. Definitely worth it.
